We haven’t posted any Yahoo Japan Auctions on VGA for a while so today’s auctions are only from there. I will try to make one solid post of only auctions from YJ per week. This will be a nice addition for collectors who use it as their primary source to build their collections. Hopefully I’ll be able to add more YJA post per week. Now it’s been a while since I’ve checked on their system so you might have seen these auctions already but I hope some items are new to you. I only hit the Super Mario World, Legend of Zelda and Phoenix Wright categories to pick out the coolest items they have.
Super Mario World Plush Lot – There are a lot of plushies on Yahoo but sometimes you’ll find a nice lot like this consisting of old SMW characters. You have a mix of plushies from different Mario sets, but most notable is the Boo plush from the Vic-Tokai set which is quite rare to find, maybe some of you are missing him.
Super Mario RPG Handbill Promo Slip – I thought this was neat since there wasn’t too many SMRPG collectibles that came out during the release. Most of the collectibles for this game was only released in Japan so you’ll need to spend some time on Yahoo Japan to find some rarer stuff. There’s some interest already for this handbill.
Legend of Zelda Minish Cap Limited Gold SP – Yup, you can find some goodies on Yahoo like this gold SP. It’s actually cheaper to buy here even when you factor in duty taxes compared to buying the cheapest one on eBay which happens to be $600. There might not be a significant difference in money saved, but every penny counts :). It’s currently at 29,800 yen with no bidders. The whole package looks to be in great shape!
Legend of Zelda Ocarina – This is pretty rare and you’ll only find this on YJA. The price is really high at 500,000 yen, and the seller isn’t bringing the price down. For those who don’t know the exchange rate, that’s 6,215.04 in USD. Sellers exact words are: “I do not intend to cut the price. I’m sorry.”
Phoenix Wright Collector Pins – I’m not sure if this is the complete set, but you got most of the lead characters in there. The price is not bad at 3800 yen since it will cost more to buy them individually.
Phoenix Wright’s Blue Badger Mascot – If you haven’t played the game you won’t understand the significance of the Blue Badger Mascot but if you have this is a real cool item. It’s a key cover! You simply slide any key you want into the Blue Badger Mascot! Sadly the auction ends soon.
