Figures of Potential interest on Yahoo Auctions Japan
« on: December 07, 2014, 05:41:25 PM »
well if the DTF has one, why not have one here too ;)

I'll start this off with this pretty large lot of bottlecap figures

It's a very cheezy lot, but some people here might appreciate what appears to be a cave cricket!

It's cheap, too.

looks more like a mole cricket (but close enough). If I saw this in a store in the US I would buy it for that figure alone, but not worth going through a Japanese auction for a figure of that quality...

That's what I meant! Mole, cave, they're all the same thing! ;)

Talk to Brett--it's start price is about 35cents. Can't speak for postage, etc, but it probably wouldn't end up that much. And how many mole cricket toys are there?

All right I give in LOL....good thing Im taxonomically restricted or I'll never stop lol

BTW I do have a small chinabug mole cricket figure but it's worse than even this one. This one at least has dorsal sculptural detail...

Thanks for posting, Sean! :) If only it was a better quality I'd buy it on the spot.

It looks like someone's getting it! I can tell from the buyer ID... ;)

As I said, I figured a few people might be interested in such a strange little figure.
