I've bought from RACS twice when TRSI was out of stock on some things and to be honest, when I see things like that over and over, I don't think I can shop from there ever again :/ I can't support that sort of thing. I mean, unless they actually BOUGHT the items at a huge markup already if it was a super rare OOP item to begin with, then sure, I can see it being high. But something that is technically still in stock and at a markup of what is basically a clearance item? Then no... Not ever... I cannot think of ANY other online or offline store that also does this practice :/


Just don't bring it on with him or he'll yell at you on Facebook.


Yeah, I've seen the defending statements. I don't think he... posts on here anymore, does he? Still, when he said he's bringing fans these rare goods (which aren't exactly so rare), reminds me EXACTLY of a seller on eBay... Back when PS3s JUST came out and places sold out, some guy was selling them online for 1 million each because he was "giving what the people want". Same sort of idea. We don't want high priced goods. I bookmark and stalk Amazon Marketplace and eBay before I'll ever pay insane markups, pricing on OOP value :/ Patience does pay off!! And then more money to go towards other items I search for.

That's unbelievable. There are a lot of ridiculous asking prices in this thread, but you could buy a house with what they are asking for that figure!!!

eBay recommended this for me while I was browsing for a DS game, so I thought I'd share it.

Spice and Wolf Holo 1:8 PVC Figure Good Smile Company

US $434,510.99

It's a 1/8 scale figure, not a controlling stake in TRSI, people! Anime hyper

If that thing was life size and talked to you and was real living thing it would still not be worth that amount!!

So you found that figure too. Razz

Although if it was a IRL Holo it's probably worth it. But then she'll make fun of me. Sad

Since Gundam Seed is released on Blu-Ray in Japan with English subtitles, I thought I'd scour eBay for related items.

I found this. Anime hyper

I will give credit that that model is extremely detailed but even for that price that is just horrible. Maybe if it was life size I could see it being worth that amount. I could buy a decent new car for that amount!!

I can understand that this is only available on VHS. But no way I would pay this much for a single VHS tape.

The Spice & Wolf Holo figure listed above is now for sale $434.99. Still a high price but a bit better than before. I have often thought that some of these outlandish prices were simple typos.

Found Kimba Vol.1 for only a measly $8,136.88 + $2.98 shipping
or a used copy for $1.99. What a hard choice.
