You can still p.m. him with offers. I inquired about an item and he got back to me before Monday. I wouldn't worry about missing out though because it didn't look like anyone was gonna get a good deal on any of these items for the time being. I suspect hes not a long time lurker but just looking for some info, but this is a forum with lots of expert members so you can't really blame someone for utilizing it. I'm sure the prices will lower gradually until the items are sold.

I think he posted to drum up some interest, he never posted any prices so I don't think he was too serious about selling any on here... no biggie still has a nice haul there and I might bid on one of them if he ever lists it.
It sounds like everyone essentially has it right in terms of intent, IMO.
But some stuff is (and was) already up on ebay. All BINs. Most of the higher priced Godaikins are still up. A few items sold already (the cheaper Godaikins and the Gatchaman stuff). Most of the other stuff has not yet been listed.
Make sure you check condition and completeness before paying MIMB prices.

I saw Abegas sell for 138 or so, and it went the day before in similar shape for 95 on a running auction, so that is about right....
I saw little Dan-cougar sold for the same amount, and Gardian sold for right at 400. Hard to find a real nice Gardian, minus busted knees, bad chrome or yellowing, so not a bad addition at all, as I would have liked to had that set. The weapons still sealed up in the ax pack, and all....
Will be interesting to see how long some of these priced in the near 600 range last, like Godmarz, Godsigma, Daimos, Bryger, and Daltanias....

to be fair to the guy, he spent a fortune acquiring the lot, so he might wana liquidate most of them as soon as he can. the prices of most of the ST pieces are probably pecked to market rate, give or take 10, 20 USD. but the pair of takatoku valks are probably on the high side.daltanias seems to be a pretty good deal tho.

You guys can hope for a great deal, but if I was in his shoes I would price the items the same way, esp having a large chunk of his coin tied up in them, just is what it is....
I sold Laserion large, not once but TWICE for 200 bucks, lol....
He returned from Singapore ""return to sender" the first time, so I refunded the idiot that did not claim it on his end, and sold it again for the same amount....
So that seems about right for him, and he will set all day seems like listed at 250 even with free shipping....
I would like to have that nice all Laserion set out of Japan or China that is priced around 600, and it has it all, the extra robot armour, the small bot, the space ship, ultimate Laserion collection, Popy Dx version....
Well I must be out-dated or extremely lucky, I got my MIB Laserion Full Armor Dx version for USD178 before shipping in 2008 or 2009 in Ebay
When I was scouting for this set, I had the impression it sells for $80 to $150 for the Godaikin version and maybe more for the Japan version. I remembered seeing one Godaikin version listed at $99.99 like forever! Funny though the ST version seems to command higher price then, even in Yahoo Japan.
Man I wish I could run into someone like that with a full Godaikin collection who didn't know what they had, and give them a good offer. Man that is a sweet set. I see a few I am interested in. Messaged you.
I talked to him through a few PMs, but waited to see the pics on ebay before I was going to contact him about anything I liked. Honestly, I feel as bad as he does that so many things were short a couple of pieces. I really liked one or two things, but I passed because I would go nuts looking for the parts. Some of it was a little more playworn than I expected as well.

till date, i have bought a couple of things from him and i must say he handles things professionally , from the early communications to shipping and packaging, it has been a totally hassle free process for me. Once i purchase any items and pay for them, its totally hands free for me, something which i will not take for granted with some ebay sellers. if i see something i fancy, i will definitly purchase from him again.
