Comments ever bit the bullet on a ridiculous aftermarket price?

  • ojakue mika itsuki
    i spent nearly 300 usd (plus shipping but i forgot how much) on ITEM #441572 who shot up SO MUCH in the aftermarket. i could not find one for a decent aftermarket price, and i've even seen this figure go for 400+ before. it was like, both worth it and not worth it because now rei is the most expensive figure i've bought and she's not like. even a dynamic figure worth 300 usd. but at the same time, i got her with ritsu (who's aftermarket prices are slowly climbing up) so it is still worth it :]

    The aftermarket is inevitable in this hobby. A lot of nendos surpass $100 post release. Blend S Maika is the only one so far I had to pay somewhat steep aftermarket for. It was new of course. She regularly sells for $100 plus. Used is a bit less. Eventually though I can see myself succumbing to the aftermarket many times over. Supply and demand :/.

    Never on impulse or else regret may set in and that's no good. Always researched[obsessed] with pricing which educated me on spotting an excellent deal on the fly. Others' rarity sometimes left me no choice:

    ITEM #61484 I think I paid 300 bc only plamoya had her in '13

    ITEM #15587 I dropped 460 on otakurepublic but was promptly refunded due to lack of stock. I really wanted an authentic one which is quite rare. ended up getting lucky on amiami preowned for 25 bucks

    ITEM #505 cost me ~180 b/b condition. Originally 50 + shipping. Glad I got her bc I never saw her on amiami every again. And she goes for 300+ now

    ITEM #106881 ITEM #130984 I paid 500-700 each. I was in self-imposed otaku exile from late '09 to may '13 so I obviously missed the pre orders for 33800 each...

    The aftermarket prices on the HypMic nendoroid line is rough; I wish you luck in picking up Jakurai for a fairer price. (I was looking for Hifumi for forever and managed to snag his off ami for 7000¥.)

    To answer your question tho, I bought Item #441572 for $350 Cad; which was honestly quite a steal since he regularly goes for $500+. I refuse to spend that much on an aftermarket figure again (I just desperately needed him) even tho there are a few overpriced ones that I want so bad. (Item #331626, for instance.)

    My romantic partner ended up spending 90$ or so on ITEM #288946 at a convention, mostly because we felt bad for bothering the woman who worked at the booth all day. It uhhhh wasn't worth it lmao

    Had to spend like 17000 yen on this bastard ITEM #415197

    Thunderbolt Fantasy isn't even super popular or anything so the fact he has insane aftermarket prices is beyond me.
