 Anton, you scare me when you start to sell the good stuff. You're not dying, are you?

Why do you think Anton is selling it? This isn't the classifieds.

 Oops, another A + B = Z on my part. My mistake.

Lol---It aint mine. I wouldn't ask (nor pay) that much for ol' Gilly.

I like the "patina" of rat chews on the side of the card.

Honestly---what does a carded male Creechie even sell for---for real? Because on ebay he's literally worth his weight in gold it seems. :angel:

Well THIS exact one sold for $6000 1 month ago. The seller is attempting to turn a quick profit. Remains to be seen if it goes for it.

Carded AHI Creatures are one of the most coveted and valuable monster figures of the 70's.  Package condition dictates a lot of the value.  This one has some wear, but as a general rule 8-12 grand is not out of the question for a nice carded example.

I sold a carded "female" Creature for $7,500 cash plus $500 trade a few years ago.

I guess the only way I'm ever getting a male, or female AHI Creature is one that is loose, zero paint and missing a leg (at least).

I have over 12 grand into my carded male, but the package is in amazingly good condition.  It is my grail monster toy, since 1975 when I got one from Kresge.  Wish I still had my childhood toy.

You mean you bought one for more than 12 grand? Sounds like you keep putting money into it.

These creatures require a lot of upkeep.

I still have my childhood male creature (yay me). My carded one is really an expensive tribute to my loose, played-with, childhood one.

I "only" have $2,000 trade and $500 cash into my carded male creetch, but I've had him for 21 years.

The way things are going, you may have to settle for a headless one.
