Does anyone know where I can pick up this kit?

Or better yet, is someone willing to sell me his/hers?

It pops up on yahoo once in while. If I happen to come across it and/or the sakura/saber kit, I'll PM you a link to the auction :)

Thank you so much. I didn't see this item under the usual Cerberus Project search.

Thank you so much. I didn't see this item under the usual Cerberus Project search.

Thats because they didn't list it as such - the title just says "Fate/Stay Night Rider Garage Kit". If you don't get a hit with the maker's name, you should always try the series or character name to cover all your bases :)

Oh I do; I have both "Cerberus Project" and "Fate ライダー" saved under my favorites. It's just that the latter tends to generate a whole lot of irrelevant items and pages, which makes it harder to wade through, while the former only generates a page + a few more items. I tend to search the former a lot more, let's just say.

Nonetheless, I have been looking through both of them everyday for the past 18 days.

Sorry, totally forgot to update you guys.

Yeah, I got the item (I had my max set at 17000 yen for a couple of days). Good thing I woke up at 6:30 this morning, because with 5 mins left to go, some guy raised it to 17500.

A bidding war was soon waged (That's what sucks about YJA; you can't really snipe because every time you place a bid at under 5 mins the counter automatically resets to 10 mins to allow other users time to bid).

I was almost ready to give up at 18500 yen, but then I went all out with 21500 and won the item at 20500. The same rider kit sold for only 18000 yen the last time it was on YJA, so I'm kind of depressed about it; but it's a good lesson in garage kits - Grab it before it disappears forever/inflates to 3 times its original price.

Hope this is of interest to someone.

(That's what sucks about YJA; you can't really snipe because every time you place a bid at under 5 mins the counter automatically resets to 10 mins to allow other users time to bid).

IMO, that's what's Great with YJA compared to flEabay and elsewhere, where it's not an auction at all, but a contest about placing a bid at the last second.
With YJA you are allowed some time to think about your bid so you don't place a ridiculously high one out of pure desperation to later regret it...

Either way, congrats on the kit!
I'm after one myself eventually ... ;)

Good luck to you.:)

Yeah, it'll take some time to get used to YJA's bidding system, after using EBay for so long.
