Re: CANCELED Pcb Akuu Gallet Japanese アクウギャレット

I am not saying it's the norm. Just that was in very good shape with original instructions. The one you linked was repaired, stickers are ruined and does not have original arts and manual ( just copies). 1800 is fair imo. Wait, the stickers are ruined? If the one zak linked to is what constitutes r...

Akihabara BEEP have had a mint boxed kit in stock for 148,000 yen for several months
Is there some way of seeing the condition of BEEP's stock, then? I often browse their stock list...but have always been a bit wary of ordering anything without pictures :oops:

Sadly, that's probably even more inevitable than my theory :( Still, hopefully we can band together - and stop foreigners from taking our 'British' PCBs ;) Am I doing Brexit right? :lolno: Yes, but you made need to fill in a form and pay a fee to nationalise your imported pcbs Once I've filled out ...

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

I fully expect prices to tank again, just as soon as I've 'finished' picking up most of the stuff that I want; just as I sold most of my collection the first time, right before all the prices went crazy.

I won't be selling again - but it feels somehow inevitable :lol:

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

:lol: I think I have vague memories of someone over on Shmups paying a lot for one many moons ago. Although given how long ago that was, I guess the value could be anything now.

We really need a PCB inflation calculator :penser:

Re: You've Got Grail! The Valuation Thread

I'm not saying you have to, vutbif you've ever bought a board from a Japanese PCBshop you know that it's kind of in a league of their own. All boards I have bought over the years have looked new. Just something to take into consideration aswell This is generally true. However, you can still end up ...

Hi all what’s a sensible and fair price for a Japanese PCB version of in the Hunt please.

Thanks
but IMO €350-450 or £900 next month
It's funny because it's true :lolno:

I agree, though, 450 EUR sounds about right for a nice one with seals (ROM rather than Navy).

Yeah, as if a 500 Yen declared PCB is going through without any issues :roll: I’ve honestly not had any issues marking that low via FromJapan - and have probably made a good 20 orders.
