I thought I would start a new thread so we can all show when we win a model from an auction system.
I'll start :D. I finally found a grail kit of mine which I've been wanting to get for a long time. It wasn't easy getting my hands on her.
She's an original 1/4 K-PIERO from Winter WF 1999
I belive her name is Yamakami and from Final Romance 4 her stats are:
Height: 163cm B:92 (F cup) W:59 H:87

OK I sent a notice to Akibado telling them that if they have received my figure to ship it to me. I'm getting sort of pissed about using them nowadays. If a figure was won on 10/28 and paid for on 11/01( money taken out of deposit I already had there before auction) I would think that the package would at least arrived by now right? The status on their site still says won/awaiting item!!

So it's one of two things either their super slow and lazy or their doing something with my figure which I doubt since you could tell if it was used for recasting plus I doubt a Japanese company would do that so I'm thinking its that their slow :dry: .

I wouldn't have used them if they weren't my only option for this bid and the fact I really wanted this super rare figure. Oh well I'll just have to wait again....

Grail sighted & Grail aquired! Kip 1/7 scale Fox Girl.

After several years of searching she’s finally mine! It’s a limited edition, clear resin version even!

This is a fairly rare kit that will be built and displayed rather than “collected” in a closet.

Any fool can hoard rare kits; takes a bigger fool to build them! That’s where I come in!

Cheers!

Thanks all, I just picked her up at the post office today, as usual his sculpt is great. She is in less pieces than I would have thought, her body is almost one full piece. I thinking he did this because of the smaller 1/7 scale though I'm not complaining.

Who's the 3rd kit? It almost looks like sailor mercury, but the boots don't look right. Nice lookin' kit though :)

I think it is Mercury maybe the sculptor was too creative with the boots, She has only one boot so I hope it should picture a move out of the boots ore something.
I could't find a Colored pic ...I dont know the sculptors name either.

Arieanna
06-20-2006, 10:08 AM
far as i know that is mercury. though i think its based more off a doujin than the actual series. that would easily explain the bit of artistic interpretation. as for the second boot, im guessing she's wearing it but the top of the boot is hidden by her other leg sovering it up. unless of course you already have her and she definately does not have a boot. lol

Nope I dont have her home now T_T
But as far as I can see on this pic she dosent have a second boot looks like bare footed to me .

And when she finally did show up on YJ she was crazy high priced. :dry: I waited and the kit never sold and the price kept dropping but buying a house all but killed my spare kit funds so when my wife asked what I wanted for Valentines day lol the bunny girl was the only thing I could think of.
So I finally got my chance to grab up my forth Inabaya bunny thanks to the misses :wub: .

Thanks again for the purchases and I appreciate the kind words Zen :)

Found this little gem while we were in chat the other day - an old Bandai styrene kit of Dr. Slump's Arare-chan. It is a very well done kit for how old it is and still retains a lot of the cuteness factor that made me a fan of the show. For you "young'uns" this is the same artist that made DragonBall Z ;)

http://www.gkjapan.com/gallery/files/8/fantasydragon.jpg

Not too shabby for a plastic kit don't you think?

Check out the old box with the old Bandai logo.

This is an original limited Dead or Alive Extreme 2 faceplate from the games Japan release date. It's actually for my wife believe it or not lol I haven't even really played the game yet but she loves it. I have no complaints about watching the DOA girls bouncing around or having sexy Kazumi on my Xbox :p .

Couldn't you've just have painted her as the red one ??? or are you talking about the PVC-version?

It's the kit I've won .. not the PVC-version .... I'm not interested in the PVC-figures!

Not a double-take, just an unusual purchase for me.

Outside of photos I've never laid hands on another person's build. So, I decided "what the heck, I'll see what they did there"

The postman (who used to work for the danish custom "services") was a bit pissed, because the parcel had passed through customs, without being declared .... and to his knowledge it should have been declared, because the invoice said the value was 4000yen :giggle:

Please don't tell him, that the actual value was closer to 30000yen :D

Just got my SMJ package with all the kits that I've bought off YJA since this January.

*Phew* The smell of resin in my room is still intoxicating after a day. Had to sleep in another room last night.

(Note to self: Open the box *outside* your room next time)

And without further ado:

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/Horo.jpg

(Thanks to Nightengale for this great catch; would've missed it otherwise)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/VolksHibachiandIsoroku.jpg

(Well technically these two aren't YJA auctions; got them from the Volk's website through SMJ)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/YoikoQCC.jpg

(Glad I waited this one out; saved like 50 bucks by waiting for another convention to roll around)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/ToushirouMaiShiranui.jpg

(Well the seller that ripped me off before never sent me this kit; so it's like I paid for it twice >_<)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/RozenMaidencomplete.jpg

(Favorite Rozen Maiden kit. Period.)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/RozenMaidenExtra.jpg

(No idea what those two black strips are for; they came with the Rozen Maiden kit)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/PEARLYoko.jpg

(I saw another one on YJA for 20,000 yen last night; I should've waited on this one) ;_<

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/OniMusume-1.jpg

(A steal at retail price)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/KurushimaKanuUnchoubyKeiko.jpg

(What can I say? I love Keiko's sculpts)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/KinoWF2003Winter.jpg

(After scrutiny, I'm sad to say that Kino doesn't look much like the Kino from the anime; ah well, at least it was only 45 bucks)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/GILLGILLMilkGirl.jpg

(Another steal at retail; I think I got the best deal of all the ones that showed up)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/AegisAigis.jpg

(Two of my favorite Aegis/Aigis kits)

Masa

Wow, that's quite the haul there Sero! ::thumb

I agree about the Kino... hmm... maybe you can convert him into Miharu from Nabari No Ou.

serogane
05-28-2008, 12:47 AM
Thanks Masa. :)

Hmm, Kino's Journey is still like one of my favorite anime series to date, so I've wanted a good GK of her for a long time.

Nabari no Ou...I've never seen it before; but I think I'll look into the series. He does have an uncanny resemblance to Kino.

Edit: Huh, even his indifferent nature is similar.

(Went with the manga instead)

05-29-2008, 10:25 PM
Didn't want these two wins (Hobby Complex 4 Osaka) to be overshadowed by the last batch of kits that I posted, so I saved them until now (Won these two days ago): ^^

Non-scale Principality of Kagutsuchino's Saber (It doesn't come with the Dark Saber sculpt that he did before; I just added it for effect)

Retail: 12,600
Won: 20,500 (....)

http://i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa279/serogane/SaberbyKagutsuchino.jpg

Tsuru no Yakata's 1/7 Horo

Retail: 8,000
Won: 22,500 (!) Granted I didn't know the retail price until after I won. Let this be a lesson to all of you.

*thread revival!*

Purchased during the withdrawal period after finishing Kiminozo I picked up an old prepaint: Young Suzumiya Haruka remembered from fragile, uncomplicated times.

....Just because I'm busy doesn't mean I can't buy, right?

Seemingly lost for an eternity (almost a year) by my deputy, this bathing beauty was finally located last summer. I'll admit the flesh is a bit flat (much like the kits i've painted myself) but the eyes and hair are works of love, and how can anyone say no bows tied to look like bunny ears?!?!?!?!?!?!!?

They lost your kit? Which company was this?

secretasianman
01-16-2009, 02:03 PM
Who they are is not important, no operation is bulletproof. :doh:

It was partly my fault for giving the seller the benefit of the doubt and waiting too many months for the item to arrive in storage. I'm surprised after 70 or 80 miscellaneous orders, I haven't lost a thing yet. Remember we're dealing items that often don't even have distinctive packaging, if any packaging is used at all.

After contacting the deputy and providing pictures and descriptions saved from the auction they were able to locate the item within a week.

secretasianman
01-31-2009, 09:39 PM
Haruka has arrived.

I must say that this is the first factory prepaint I've ever purchased and A-brand casts a damn fine kit.

The finish is not horribly flat nor is it ostentatious and the shading of the colored clothing is not overly dramatic. Don't let the lighting fool you, it's 9:37 PM here and there's nothing in the house except flourescent and tungsten lighting.

Nice Saber!

The only silver lining on the pvc cloud is that when the fanboys get their instant pvc gratification - you usually see an instant reduction in the price of the garage kit version :D

Which reminds me... I'd better snatch up a Mahoro on Bike soon :p

taggor
02-21-2009, 02:31 PM
Yeah you are right about those prices Masa, I would like to have the Mohoro too but, I promised myself that I would try to actually finish a kit after I bought that Saber since I have one Saber in process and three other kits lying around. I need to spend my precious "quatloo's" on paint, finishing suplies, photo booths... etc. or else I could always find an excuse to buy more kits. I know that I am not alone there! My skills will not get any better if I just keep buying kits... It's a VICIOUS CYCLE I say!:sweat:

Masa
02-21-2009, 11:37 PM
It's really hard to avoid in our hobby. Hoarding, to some extent, is pretty much par for the course. Since we are dealing with very limited items (both in quantity and availability), we don't have the luxury to wait until previous kits are all completed before purchasing the next kit.

It's not too bad these days with the internet, online shops, and auction systems that allow us a second chance to get that rare kit. Before, if you didn't go to the event yourself, or know someone who did - you were not going to get that kit, ever :sweat:

secretasianman
02-22-2009, 09:37 AM
Before, if you didn't go to the event yourself, or know someone who did - you were not going to get that kit, ever :sweat:

Still seems to hold true though, unless you want to pay scalper prices :cry:

also I had a peek at the treasure-fest and HOLEY MOLEY I thought the PVC party was to drive GK prices down. instead:

Production A-brand kits displayed with price tags starting at no less than 12000 yen?
Nanoha kits by T's system listed at 14000 yen each?

And those prices were on event display tags. not auction markup. Speaking of which, looking over old kit auctions, I've seen finished Meiya Mitsurugi cold-casts reaching to 100,000 yen ::yikes and Kotobukiya Pia carrot 3 *kits* headed for 20,000 yen - the ones that hit the shelves at 5000 yen!

or is my perspective just off and I'm looking at what everyone else wants?

Our dear friend mihochan had me pegged years ago when she pointed out I favored ruffled designs or girlie details .. or something to that effect. I denied it at the time but little did I know she was right.

Todays victory: Nono from "Top wo nerae 2!" by French Doll(?), I believe it was a magazine special. I debated on the Wave Be-J version but at a scale that seemed to undermine A-brand.... I couldn't bring myself to get a smaller kit that cost 50% more
