    Those guys listed 2 bootleg Nags in their last auction. Glad they can guarantee authenticity this time

    Unsurprising, but it stings a bit to see auction prices on this one continue to rise. This has been my grail since it came out, but I was unemployed in 2012 and never had a shot at finding it early on. There will always be a few people who have no qualms with driving up prices indefinitely, and YJA's auto extensions enable petty bidding wars. This one extended more than 20 minutes.

    Would be nice to at least see a new Mirock collab as consolation.

    Woof! I think that's the highest I've seen one go for. A new RxH x Mirock would be a dream, but with the way both artists are moving I think it's unlikely. We've been wishing for years now. Still, you never know.

    I have not bought anything fancy on the open market for a couple of years now. I wonder what's driving the recent spike in prices for old toys--if it's just dolls drying up, or more macroeconomic.

    A sealed one sold in the Mandarake Zenbu 109 lot.

    And a sealed purple one sold on eBay for around $8000 a few years ago.

    Yeah, given the Zembu price sealed I was hoping this one would at least stall around $5k. Alas.

    The right one (2.5K) is definitely a good price consider current market value.

    Given that one just went for 11K on YJA I would say that they’re both steals :roll:

    They'd definitely sell for more if listed on Yahoo Japan or Mandarake auction.

    Gah! I was out hiking yesterday and missed a red Finkshit that ended up going for just over 2 hundred! Oops…. What a steal…. Who got it??? :mrgreen:

    Definitely the cheapest I’ve seen one go for in the past 10 years at least.

    I found my green version in Mandarake Shibuya during my 2015 trip for $200USD. My favorite find of the entire two months, sans the Thrashout Gargadeath for $60USD I found in Nakano Broadway.
