I have bought this item in Ebay 19,99 USD!!!
Is a very rare item? I'm not sure, but how many money will be cost? I know that is from the Ahi Super Monsters, but is loose without blister.

This is the pic of the item that I have win... Which are the most hard to find Ahi Monster?

Hi - I think the most difficult to find of the AHI Worlds Greatest Super Monster items are the creatures (both male andfemale versions)...

Only my opinion though, I could be incorrect...

fmofmpls

You would be correct. The carded AHI male version (sans wide hips) Creature is the pot o' gold. This goes for loose versions as well.

Yes, I'm agree, I think that the creature is the most rare of all. But why,The cretaure is always in all the toys, the most expensive and the most rare of all?. Is very cool, I know, but the coolest of all Monsters?

If you are talking about loose figures, the versions of Wolf Man and Mummy with jointed wrists are the hardest to find.  There is also a peculiar looking Frankenstein that is very rare.

Yes, as far as AHI Monsters are concerned, the odd variations are some of the most difficult to find, but as far as value, either of the Creature figures will usually top them in price.  More people want the Creature, and there are less Creatures out there than the other monsters in the group because they were included in the assortment for a shorter time.  In my experience, the most difficult AHI figure to find was the jointed wrist Wolf Man, followed closely by the jointed wrist Mummy, as Ray pointed out.  But you can usually find these variations on eBay not listed as such, so if you have a good eye and know what you are looking for, they can be found for a decent price.

The Charlie Chan version? That version, as rare as it may be, has always annoyed me. Maybe that's too harsh. I'm just down with the Asian Frank. What do you think was the reason behind this variation Raymond? Other than to annoy me that is.

Yeah. I wasn't taking into account the endless variations. My answer was based on the overall demand per individual monster (sans wrist types).

Terry, I think the preferred nomenclature is "Asian Frankenstein", and yes, it was created specifically to annoy you.  ;D  Actually, Matt Jaycox has a theory that it is just a distorted mold or something, not actually a unique sculpt.

Thanks Andy for correcting me on the correct nomenclature. I hope my post didn't come across politically incorrect in anyway. That certainly wasn't my intent. In fact, I was making a conscious effort to NOT across that way. In trying to dance delicately, I'm afraid I fell down and chipped a tooth. Clumsy of me .. I know.

BTW, I went back and modified my post as to NOT offend anyone.  :o

I have seen a couple of the MOC Male creatures for sale with in the past year but I have not seen a female MOC for sale lately...either one is going to set ya back a few thousand (I think). Few of course meaning more than two   ;)

Oddly enough, I'm on the look out for any MOC monsters by AHI....not sure what I would do if I came across a MOC creature...as dumb as I can be at times, I bet I would buy it   :-\

Actually I was quoting from one of my favorite movies, "The Big Leboski" and just being silly.  Political correctness has gotten a bit out of hand, IMO.  Maybe that's why I love Lebowski...

Yep, the female is a few grand-ish MOC, while I've seen the male version in the 5 - 7 grand range.  If I could afford it, I might do the same; but it's never gonna happen for me unless I find a good deal on one.  Stranger things have happened, but I'm not holding my breath...

I believe the PC version is ASIAN-AMERICAN FRANKENSTEIN
