Yupa (2 months ago) #2307530Never participated in an online auction before? The true bids can be much higher than what's shown for.
If the current price is at 78,000 yen and you place a bid of 100,000 yen, it only shows as a bid of 79,000 yen. If someone else bids higher, the system automatically places a bid for you that is 1000 yen higher than that, but not more than your maximum bid of 100,000 yen.
In other words, the winning bid was 78,000 yen, but that winner probably placed a bid much higher than that. He only has to pay the second highest bid + 1000 yen.


I won't argue with you dude. All I said was that I bid 80,000... Closing price was listed as 78,000. I have participated in many an auction, and I read the mechanics of an auction before participating... anyway, I looked back, and it never registered my bid.

End of story.

Rajura (2 months ago) #2307463Well, I saw the closing price... so, since I had bid even higher that is the logic I used.
Oh well, I really didn't have 80,000 yen to blow this month, so it is for the best.

Yupa (2 months ago) #2306949If your bid didn't get through you'll never know if you had the highest bid, that's the way those auto bids work. But I admire your determination to get this small piece of artwork nonetheless.

Rajura (2 months ago) #2306887Well, I made a bid but it wouldn't process, so I just saved a whole bunch of money.
It is a shame though... I would have had a max bid! (And yes it was before it closed).

I'm excited! :D
Any new Holo is a joyous occasion for me. :)
... but like Yupa said.. I'd be MUCH happier with a GSC re-release!

Keep asking 'em! It could happen!

Yeah, I already have the third release of Koto's.

GSC's re-release would be much more welcomed.

Meh, I can't get excited about a figure which has been released three times before. If only GSC did a re-release...
