Silly eBayer is in Japan, won't post to Japan:

I don't think it's that unreasonable. If that is a legit release (which it looks like), that's a good price for it. And if it's readily available in Japan, considering the username of "otaku.com", I'd assume that they're trying to make this available for a good price outside of Japan. As in "if you're in Japan and want this, go buy it for yourself".

Well, if I had the scratch, I'd definitely want this puppy:

Space Battleship Yamato 1 Meter Long

A mere 296,000 Yen (approx. $3,600 US and another $170 to ship) and would look great on anybody's mantelpiece!

For that price you can buy a Chinese Gundam statue (rebel version) like this.

Shipping will cost twice as much though (as with any Chinese products).

Unlike animation cels, these hanken cels are different beasts entirely. They're the images used as cover art and the like, so they tend to carry a much higher premium. Here's a link with some more examples (with prices).

But they'd still make money, and they'd have an easier time at the post office/FedEx/DHL whereever. Smile

So I don't really see where they're coming from.

Don't get me wrong; of course, they have the right not to post to Japan, but it just seems silly to me. Confused

It's almost a bargain for something that size. SmileAnime hyper

That reminds me: there are plastic replica pistols of Revy's Cutlasses (from Black Lagoon) in Akihabara for around 32,000 yen, IIRC.

I lolled so hard at this. Especially at the troll smile. LOL

Here's a copy of Chrono Trigger. While a great game, it's worth nowhere near that, I don't care how much money you have Laughing :

Not only that, but the remake for the DS has extras, and a revamped translation.

Emulators FTW too. Anime hyper

It got up to $9,999,999 or something but was cancelled.

If I'm correct, some internet phenomenon girl who did....I dunno, I think she put some vids on youtube or something. Doesn't excuse paying that much for a sleeping bag! Here's the "Know Your Meme" for it.

Oh God....I frigging hate girls like her. They make me ashamed to be an anime fan. -.-'

Also, by "bleeping" I mean f***ing. Razz
