    Not flippin...it is really rare and limited in numbers. This pink vinyl, Hawaiian Nakayoshi Red Jack
    is stunning! Mine cost me quite a bit...not as much as the YJA one but not cheap.
    Here are better pics of mine on Omni Monster

    That's a pretty interesting toy. It says it was made during the WWII era.

    This ended todat at 1,016,000 Yen!!! Two people bid over 1,000,000 Yen. It is an Ultraman Taro on one side with a ZAT member on the other. The seller said it was a Bullmark. Anyone have any more info on this?

    Re: strange or rare yahoo auctions post here

    Nostalgia is definitely expensive lol :mrgreen:
    1mil yen is $10k

    It's a lot for a toy, but then again considering the average golf club membership in Jpn is minimum ~$10-15k(with yearly fees) and a discounted members price for a round is ~$100...
    Gas prices btw are closer to $6 a gallon.

    Where do you think all the mortgage broker fees that fed the mortgage crisis in the U.S. went to ;)

    Seriously, a very cool vintage toy store owner in NYC put it all in perspective: When it comes to vintage stuff that goes for insane amounts, 9 times out of 10 it's some investment banker or someone involved in the stock market.

    Most of the guys I see buying the crazy stuff in japan are guys with good jobs, but not stock market types. Not sure who bought this, but everyone I talked to had never seen or heard of this toy before. Crazy!

    while there may be one or two that are harder to get than others, these are fairly easy to find. it works out to approx. $40.00 each which is not a great price although you do get the convenience of getting them all at once.

    I happen to love these mini tiger mask figures and have several of the ones pictured.

    Wow...I had no idea the "Monster Parade" figures were based off of older toys.

    Yup. And for $1200 this one could have been yours.

    Unpainted black test shot of the Marmit Balzas. Went for more than I thought it would (but not as much as the RxH).
