I saw this the other day, and did consider bidding. However, having bought far too much other stuff recently already, I'm beginning to think it's probably a suicide mission to even consider getting involved! I'm sure it'll sell for far more than I could afford to throw at it, anyway...

No idea what the last one went for. It's probably the only game on my (ever-growing) hit list I haven't seen in well over a year.

Surely! Although with all the nutty prices these days, it's hard to know. Still, given that this will now become the ‘new price’ for one – I think it’s time I scrubbed it off my want list :lol:

Crazy price on that Squawkers. Unless the top bidder was a shill, there must have been at least one real bidder willing to pay 423,000 yen for it, and that’s their choice.

Also, I have seen a lot of auctions by the seller kumachan, and most end with one bid, even some rare stuff. Doesn’t seem like a guy who would get into shill bidding. I think it is most likely there were a handful of collectors with deep wallets aggressively trying to get this PCB.

To be fair, the last auction I won from Kumachan I won for the opening bid :oops:

This just seemed almost unbelievably high, though…but I guess if enough hardcore collectors were fighting over it, anything’s possible. I always figured Squawkers was extremely rare – but not so sought after/in demand that it could command that sort of price. I guess I figured wrong.

I have seen it on many people's want-to-buy/want-to-trade-for lists this past year, but this is the first one I have seen for sale anywhere this year.

Last one on YAJ went for about 520,000 yen.
Ended at 251,000 yen. Why did someone pay more than double for it last month? :wtf: Weird stuff happens on YAJ.

Some people just 'gotta have it now' and will egregiously overbid, it's not exclusive to YAJ

Yes, I know, but the price disparity here is pretty shocking.

I am more shocked the second one sold for 251,000 yen. That seems really low to me, considering the way rare Cave kits have been selling this past year.

I'm sure it can be attributed to more foreigners being in the market at the time. :awe:

Meanwhile, on YAJ, we have a Medal Fighter cab! I'd probably buy this if I had the space and a way to get it across the ocean.

I'd archive it, but Yahoo JP seems to be blocking the site now. :(

Maybe the other auctions were all fake. :lol:
