Yahoo Auctions & CD Japan Loot (Sailor Moon)

So I allowed myself back onto Yahoo Auctions after banning myself for a few months for the sake of my wallet, and got a nice haul of goods! I didn't take box pics or pics of everything laid out together as I don't really have the space for that in my rather tiny and crowded flat. Anyway, onto the haul!

Warning: It's rather pic heavy.

A couple of clear files first, ITEM #354139 and ITEM #431713 - the first with all the senshi in their eternal forms came bundled with a magazine, and the second with Princess Serenity is a clear file from the Sailor Moon Exhibition I didn't already have. ITEM #354139 is usually quite expensive, but I picked up this one quite a bit cheaper than the price I've seen on Mandarake, so I was happy. (It's actually upside down, but that's fine. Better view of the outer senshi, who are the most important of course). I've been really wanting this for my clear file collection, so I'm glad to finally have it.

One of the clear file sellers also sent along this pretty advert as an extra.

Some small Lottery prizes I decided to get, ITEM #279424, ITEM #279423, ITEM #279422, ITEM #279420, ITEM #279432, ITEM #279434 and ITEM #279419. I got two of the outer senshi handkerchief design so I could open one and keep one sealed. The straps are really pretty, and bigger than I expected. I was surprised considering they're the "I" prize. I love the plastic dish, but I think I need to display it with some coloured card or paper behind it so the pattern is more visible. Currently I have it standing on my shelf and it's a bit hard to see the design from a distance.

Next up some gashapon, ITEM #261461 and these two sets, ENCYCLOPEDIA #91561 and ENCYCLOPEDIA #88397. I'm really addicted to gashapon, so I like to pick up sets when I can. I really like the charm mascots as we don't get to see these versions of the wands near as often as the star wands. I already had the Deep Aqua Mirror and Cosmic Heart from the other set, but re-bought a full set so I could take my extra Aqua Mirror to work. I'm in the process of building a Sailor Moon collection at my desk at work since I had a bunch of doubles of trading figures and gashapon keychains. Unfortunately my Spiral Heart Moon Rod gashapon from the Stick & Rod series isn't the best. It came still in its bag but it has a pretty noticeable paint chip in the pink paint on the shiny heart part of the wand. I already have the Outer Senshi and Chibiusa from Set 3, and they're all perfect, so I'm not sure what happened with this one. Maybe they're liable to damage if they're not stored in their capsules? Or maybe this one just had a poor paint job? It's a little unfortunate but maybe I'll pick up another one eventually, and the chipped one can join the collection at work.

So many Miniaturely Tablets! I already had Set 3 and half of Set 4, so I bought these to complete the rest - Set 1 and Set 2 and the half of Set 4 I was missing (each set bought from a different seller). ENCYCLOPEDIA #79682, ENCYCLOPEDIA #86240 and ENCYCLOPEDIA #102418. These were all new, supposedly, but Set 1 actually isn't - a couple of them had previously been opened and the Crystal Star has a bit of damage. I usually open these anyway, so I'm not too bothered about them being open, but I will have to get another Crystal Star which is a bit annoying. I've usually found Yahoo Auction sellers to be pretty honest, so I hope this was a fluke rather than an indication of things going downhill.

Next this adorable little plush, ITEM #564111. (She is a keychain but it's not visible in the photo). I don't know why I like these so much, but I think they're just the cutest thing ever. Must collect Neptune and Pluto and Saturn as well, but for now Uranus is the only one I have.

https://static.myfigurecollection.net/image/Emillia1495004476.jpeg

Finally my prize figures, ITEM #281940, ITEM #281941 and ITEM #281942. I'm cheating a bit as Uranus and Neptune I bought locally about a month ago since it was about the same price of paying item price + shipping from Japan. Saturn I got used quite cheap from YA, but since she's in perfect condition I'm happy with her. If I'd bought her new, I would have opened and displayed her right away anyway. I held off on getting these for a long time as I wasn't sure I liked them, but now that I have them I'm definitely a fan. I've bought Pluto too but she's still in Japan.

And the last purchases from my Auction Haul, some CDs, ITEM #215789, ITEM #215790 and ITEM #215792. I really want to build up my anime CD collection some more, and these were a steal at 600 yen for all three. The cases have a bit of damage but they were so cheap that's hardly a big deal. All the CDs play fine and I saved myself a bucket load of money. I'm quite a fan of Akuma no Riddle, and it has an awesome soundtrack so this was a perfect find!

And a few more Sailor Moon CDs an another Akuma no Riddle CD I bought new from CD Japan that arrived the other day, which I thought I might as well tack onto the end of this post. I haven't opened any of these yet, but I'm looking forward to having some time to do that!

So overall I'm extremely happy with my purchases. None of my YA items were particularly expensive items and I got most of them to finish off series of goods I was collecting. I still want to get the Special Color Versions of the Miniaturely Tablets and then I'll be done with those since I'm not too interested in the wands versions that are coming out now. I mostly caught up with the Ichiban Kuji Lottery Prizes I want to get - still have a few more in Japan to be sent over. Another few gashapon crossed off the very long gashapon list. More clear files for my clear file collection! Though I have a lot more I want to get still.

That's about it for now, thanks for reading!

Jess-chan (5 mese/i fa) #21268513I'm kinda tempted to get Uranus and Neptune but I'm running out of space :(
Well, if you can squeeze them in somewhere I think they're really good quality considering the price. I only wish Neptune's hair was a bit more detailed, and that it had more of that flowy affect rather than looking kinda thick and heavy the way it does. But that's a pretty minor gripe. Uranus's hair is really detailed in comparison, they took the trouble to sculpt in lots of strands and she's got her cowlicks.

feuilgarde (5 mese/i fa) #21222760So many Sailor Moon goodies!! Hehe I saw the Uranus and Neptune prize figures pop up in your collection a while ago and was surprised that you got them so quickly. Can't wait to see Pluto join them!
The clear files you've bought are so pretty, especially the one with the artbook illustration. <3 Do you keep the handkerchiefs stored somewhere or do you display them? (Curious!)
Now I'm curious about your desk at work hahaha.

We have pretty roomy cubicles in my office, so there's ample room for a few collectibles. The desk divider thingie is made up of that pincushiony material so I have some gashapon and keychains pinned up there, and a few extra trading figures sitting on/in my paper tray. (Like, 99% of what I do is online, I never have anything to put in my paper tray, lol).

The extra handkerchief that I opened I'm going to display somehow - not sure how yet. I might see if I can make a frame for it and put it on the wall. It's kinda big. The others I'll leave sealed up and store them. The clear files are really nice! The artbook illustration one is sparkly too, though that doesn't show up in the photo. Yeah, I'm really happy with my Girls' Memories figures. Uranus and Neptune and Saturn look really good together, and they're 'guarding' my gashapon die-cast holy grail which is kinda the right size for them. I'm looking forward to getting Pluto!

Ciciely (5 mese/i fa) #21218162Everyone always finds great stuff on these yahoo auctions..hm..maybe I should give it a try.

It will be great for your collection and bad for your wallet! Seriously though it's pretty easy these days, and I pick up a lot of stuff on there I never see anywhere else.
