Title: Gundam & others on eBay (Interesting, rare, cheap or stupid items)
Post by: VP on January 20, 2012, 10:04:08 AM
Like most people, I troll through eBay looking for interesting, rare or cheap items to buy and occasionally come across things that I have no interest in, but I'm sure someone here might be keen on - so that's the reason behind this thread.

As this is a Gundam forum, please only post stuff that's Gundam related please - no links to an eBay item selling Vegemite on a piece of toast shaped like the crucifix, etc :P

Out of courtesy to fellow members, a brief description or heading would also help - saves people clicking un-necessarily on a blind link to an item that they would have no interest in whatsoever.

Please also include the starting list price (or current bid price) at time of posting the link - if it's Buy It Now, include that price too.

So go for gold, post eBay links to stuff that's interesting, rare and/or cheap (or ridiculously expensive/over priced).

To kick things off:

Cup Noodle Zaku for the hungry Gunpla builder BIN $25
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Chars-Zaku-MS-06S-Gundam-Model-cup-noodle-limited-/320830177884?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ab2f8025c#ht_4404wt_952

Zaku Suitcase for the travelling Zeon/Zaku fan BIN $400 or starting at $357

If you guys thought that Zaku Zippo was awesome, check these out:

Hyaku Shiki Zippo (BIN $130)
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ZIPPO-JAPAN-ANIME-SET-MS00100-RARE-NEW-Z-GUNDAM-L-E-TV-/190625882357?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c623020f5#ht_849wt_1185

So tempted to buy that last one... love the novelty value of how the pink dot on the lighter becomes the optic camera for the Zaku's head once it's inserted. :P

Umm... I'm not sure you get the understanding behind this thread.

Like most people, I troll through eBay looking for interesting, rare or cheap items to buy and occasionally come across things that I have no interest in, but I'm sure someone here might be keen on - so that's the reason behind this thread.

As posted originally, the intention of this thread is to draw the attention of fellow Gundam/Gunpla fans towards 'interesting, rare and/or cheap' items which they might be interested in.

Obviously as time passes, common sense would tell you that eBay items either get sold, the listings expire or they get re-listed if they pass over without a buyer, so therefore why would there be a requirement to update the original posts/links?

Naturally as the thread grows, you wouldn't bother to click a link that was 2 months (or 6 months or a year, etc) old, you would only look at postings with links that are current.

Updated my post to include prices....I too love the bag but not for $400!
Title: Re: Gundam on eBay (Interesting, rare, and/or cheap items)
Post by: Sonar on January 22, 2012, 09:26:54 AM
I get it. :)

No other requirements other than what was stated.

If you like the sound of the basic description and have an idea of the price at the time of posting then you are armed with enough info to proceed through to the decision to click or not click the link and look at a picture/listing for yourself ;)

Obviously if you click an old link the listing is likely to have expired.

TBH the last thing I want or need is another temptation so I will try and resist clicking on links in this thread ;)

The craft tool set for $199??? Not so much - surely must have been a typo (decimal point in the wrong area ~ $19.90 :P)

Yeah but look at the price of the 6 sold ones - $17.

The $199.00 is definitely a typo then - the seller most likely upped his price from $17.00 to $19.90 but punched in $199.00 instead.

Nah, there was a BIN price for $65 earlier - hardly expensive.

I'd imagine due to it's vintage, it's probably quite rare though.

Far out some people are unbelievable. Look at his feedback, people are stupid enough to pay $108 for a 1000 pc Totoro puzzle that costs  :y:2000 in Japan. $350-$450 for G shock watches! Incredible.

Read the first comment on the page....classic!

"....However, i personally think that amazon overprice the item (at least when i buy it, is $140 plus shipping)....."

$9999.95 Vs $140+P/H........I would call "overpricing the item" a slight exaggeration!


Have a look at some of the sellers others items......$1000 for a beanie or a poster!

I know that store. They sell a small range of kits for a huge price. But some are pretty rare kits, ie 1/144 Dendrobdium.

But what's so limited about that kit?

Thought someone might find that interesting.

Stupidly over priced, would pay $35 if kit was whole and pieces still on the runner but built is worth nothing. $15 MAX!! because the nubs are still there and hope the seller did not use glue + box. Also being owner of said kit it's quality is as ruff as guts.

Ghost, this kind of crap happens all the time especially on the out of product item.  One similar item can have a price different up to 600 dollars.  Some japan crazy people sell their item for nearly 1000 dollars and Hong Kong sellers only sell at 400 dollars.

I ended up getting a yamato sent from HK for $90 odd but in saying that, they didnt send it for a fortnite after payment and ignored my emails about tracking numbers, dare say they had it for sale without actually having it in stock... heres the seller: http://myworld.ebay.com.au/megalopolitan/&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2754

Next time ill just fork out the extra dough and get it from Japan. They treat their customers with respect, that alone is worth the extra money.

I like how he is going to charge $5 if you drive to his house and pick it up! And that you have to pay $2 more than he did for a second hand model!!! DOUBLE BARGAIN!!!!

Found it amusing in the ads underneath it had an unbuilt Zeta for $300+free p/h!!!

WFT


I'll have two please  ::)

I reported this clown earlier last week as the price he had listed was only a deposit of US$5000. The whole price wasn't obvious until you waded through about two pages of crap. The $5000 was only a deposit. A tricky way to get out of paying ebay fees as the balance was to be paid to their account somewhere in the far reaches of China. It's about time ebay started listening to complaints and stopped defending the rip off artists it provides a haven for. Although in this case I'd say they only made him correct the listing because they were going to loose a fair bit of money if some fool actually buys it.

They've got a number of listings that were done the same way and I see they've had to correct them all  ;D
