Trainboy90's Purchases
I also have a twitter profile that's public.

I just made my first purchase off of Amazon Japan which is exciting because the prices on Plarail items on ebay recently went up to the $25-35 range for a normal engine with 1 or 2 rolling stock.

Three customs and one as is model. Who else here has purchased off of Amazon Japan?

I'll be making three of these engines into customs and 1 will not be a custom.

They're cheaper than ebay. Also most items get shipped through the Amazon Global Shipping Program which when you're in the US, the items will get to you around a week.

I'm seeing the same as you Trainboy. eBay prices in AU are also sky high. Seems mostly from Japanese sellers asking many hundreds of dollars for basic sets.

Like this new Hikari for AU$115.

I also get annoyed when I see 'very rare' used on items that we know are not really that rare. 'Very rare' probably doesn't even end up on eBay at all. I feel like on eBay there are a lot of sellers trying to be tricky and hoping to sucker buyers into paying more than something is worth.

I wonder if anyone actually pays these ridiculous prices?

I'll just as well as stick to Amazon Japan and the Japan Auctions for Plarails for now on, better costs. I don't order from the auctions that often though, once in a while if I need parts for locos.
