    I have been wanting Greatshot for a long time. :rock  :rock  :rock  This one is in great condition and comes with one gun. I didn't realize how much they remolded it. The Raiden trains are awesome too. There in better condition than the ones I had before. Enjoy pics.

    Either it's somewhere other than ebay, or he hits "buy it nows" that would make our wallets die as soon as they are listed. My guess is somewhere other than ebay. If he tells us, he will have to kill us...

    I've used Yahoo Japan to get some rare pieces for my collection, too. I suggest using Shoppingmalljapan as a proxy, though. Their fees aren't quite so exorbitant.
    Ultimately when getting beauties like these though, your best marketplace is patience. Wait and save your money until the item you want comes along and you can afford it. They don't come along every day, but they are all the sweeter when they do.

    I switched to Celga. With their Celga Gold you actually get your own screen name on YJ and their fees aren't quite as steep :)  The only drawback I have is that Rinkya's post-auction management is a lot better. I have to save the auction in favorite places and check back...but I can live with that :)

    Bear in mind: Yahoo Japan auctions isn't necessarily that cheap, nor is it a 'Treasure trove' of rare items. Plus the percentage based fees can clock up pretty quickly,


    Having done the math on recent purchases there, they've cost me at least as much as they would have if i bought them on eBay.


    My favorite recent auction from there is the seller trying to get $517.00 for MP Convoy.

    There's also one looking for $65 for C.Downshift
    :D
