Aozaki Toko - Kara no Kyoukai

Unread postby lolipedofin » February 25th, 2009, 5:04 am

Just up recently for preorder at Hobby Search

Geez... God... I'm speechless.... I can take it if it from Archer or Kiritsugu... but maaan... To feel emasculated by a woman... it's awful... but strangely good at the same time.....

Words can't explain, see for yourself... definitely equal Magical Rin as my favorite figure... well, ok, beat Rin by a fraction of a margin... Saber Lily follows on third...^^

Image


It's out June, same month as Saber Lily... maker is Alter. 2 awesome TYPE-MOON figure out at the same month! gonna get both...^^

Ohh.. and retail price is 6800 yen... A cheaper alternative if you can't afford Lily... still expensive though... T.T

Sidenote: I'm not by any means endorsing Hobby Search... they just simply put it up first...

Does anyone here ever use deputy service for buying stuffs from yahoo auction japan or japan online stores??? Can you tell me, based on your knowledge and experience, what's the best to use???

I'm currently planning to use japamart.com, i got 2 alternatives in Shopping Mall Japan and Goody Japan... Japamart currently only cater yahoo auction, they can do deputy for online shop, but the comission rate is ridiculous... I don't mind using them though, as right now, I'm only using it for auction...^^

Does anyone have any advice or tip where to go for deputy service?? i don't know which one is more reliable, cheaper, and more trustworthy....

Have you tired http://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/?

I found some old and hard to find Kohaku figs from them, also found the old MB and Re-act too. Something I have not been able to find anywhere else.

I believe the only place to find old stuff is at an auction site anywho.

Also there are some sellers on Ebay that claim to find items sold in local stores from Japan. (They claim to live in Japan) Since Japan have places like Yellow Submarine, they might be able to find that old fig or whatever you are looking for.

I used the word "claim" a lot since you will never really know if the person online is telling the truth or not. My little disclaimer.

By the way, what are you looking for???? :?

Good luck on your search. It may be a long one, but it will be more rewarding for the more difficult ones. It just makes the item more valuable.

yup, just went on a spending spree on yahoo auction... It's my first time using a deputy service/proxy to bid at yahoo japan, and i splashhed bombed my dough there... what ironic is, my primary target, the reason why i use the service in the first place, i failed to get... It looks so cheap at first.. then suddenly in the last 20 minutes, a huge bidding war happened... T.T

That my friend.. Is called 'sniping'...

Its a regular occurance in any online auctions...

..
...

Some say that the person that disrupts your bid.. might just be the seller's 'alternate account'... Trying to steal off a slightly higher price for the product...

Nope.. that's not sniping... sniping is actually an act that avoids a bidding war... to make a bid in the dying seconds, or even at the very last second, giving no chance to other bidder to outbid the sniper. While there are seller trying to raise the price of their own good, i think it's not as prevalent as people said it is... there's enough measure to prevent that...

Still going to get the item i want though, i already found 2 sellers and will definitely brag share some pictures of that acquisition here...^^ I only went to Yahoo Japan, because i thought i could secure better deal... until the bidding war scared me off... Well, it's predicted tho, the item was kinda old and rare, still a bit surprising for a second hand item to strike 4000 yen price, but oh well... In the end, yahoo japan proved to be catastrophic as I ended purchased tons of stuffs i don't intend to buy...

And btw Inferno, one of the item i was bidding on (not my primary target, just interested when i saw some of the deals...) was Saber Lily figma... some people open the price for it, mint in the box, including the game for only 1,000 yen... until of course bidding war at the last minute... i could still get her for 'only' 5,000 yen (80 SGD), but then decided not to since the 1/7 figure is coming to my place at June anyway.... ^^

Wow. I never had anyone bid against me in yahoo auction. Well I guess I been lucky, or maybe the Kohaku fan base is a dieing breed. Who knows. Since the only thing I ever bought from that site has been Kohaku figs. I never really looked for anything else. But anywho in one or maybe two day my order will come in. Woot. I can't wait and since I will be at home for two days for getting my teeth pulled it will be a good time indeed. (Time off work.)

Well yes it can add up. It's funny that I paid more for the handling fee from the auction agent then I paid for the item. Other times it seems like the price will double when all the fees add up. Oh well.

I think the most I paid for a fig from there has been 20000 Yen. But hay it was a collection so I won't complain.

Ya if you are talking about a auction agent I like Rinkya. They might have a little fee here and there, but they have super customer support. That's all I really ask from a company. Since that Akibado has some of my Yen, but I have not been able to get it back from them. No one ever answers my email too. I wouldn't mind if they gave me a fee for taking it back, but hay 24500 Yen does hurt a little. Also it is hard to find someone who will ship internationally. Oh well that's what I get for not really looking over the TOS. Man I am so mad at myself for that.
