    I gave a HoC one to my friend in Japan a while back. Cost me AU$10 or so. I am going to check if that's his yhj ID :lol

    lol so these were mass released? Sorry I don't know much about the HoC series since they never got released in the UK (at least I don't remember them selling these over here)

    Hope your service isn't charging much fee. But some Yusha toys cost a lot even in Japan, right? I want Liner Dagwon myself...

    I do think that figure was a chase in Japan. But not that precious I am sure :lol 

    Edit; I have just noticed the insignias seem to be upside down with the figure in yhj. So that's the $2200 difference or have my eyes gone even worse?

    Some guy made a max bid of 12,000 on a figure that looks to be deluxe/basic TF size though the auction doesnt make it clear whether theres one or two items included. I just out bid him... Since your versed in japanese could you check for me? I'm only good at katakana, some hiragana and a few kanjis :D . I'll PM you the link.

    I've done a couple of YHJ auctions that went over 15'000 yen, but those were lots - it came down to me working out even at that price, getting each piece individually would have cost me far more.

    I'd be crazy to pay that much for a little 3 inch PVC though.

    Wow, such persistence :lol 

    You said yours was in a storage, but when you dig it out one day, please look at his wings. The insignias still look upside down to me.
    It doesn't justify the price in any way, but I find it curious.

    Thanks, guys! So is it like cartoon accurate vs toy accurate? I was only going to have a laugh when I started this thread, but looks like I have learnt something :D 

    C_C, hope you'll get batteries for your camera :)

    The HOC StarScream goes around 10-20 bucks.
