Survey Question on FAC 2004: Gastness Temple

For original kits like Gastness Temple 1/100, or 1/00 Heavy Zakker, 1/100 Calvary, and so on, how much are you willing to pay for it?

Knowing that if you go thru any of those Japanese Auction place, it would be about 20% above list price.

The list price for Festival only items are usually too high for me without a markup. It seems that when they show up on auctions they go for 100% markup. Right?

I never visited Yahoo Japan, so I don't know the list price on those Wonder Festival kit at Yahoo Japan. Anyone knows, is it 100% mark up?

Pretty much.

Frankly, the quality on those FAC kits isn't good enough to justify those prices. I'm glad the Flamberge and Calvary R made it to recast, where the price is more reasonable.

"Those Prices" as in the FAC list price that day? Or you mean Yahoo Japan marked up price? The list price on FAC 2004 that day is about 18K yen for Heavy Cross, 20K yen for Gastness temple.

I concur if it is marked up 100%. Even 50 to 100% on top of the list price is too high.--I think we call it highway robbery. Apparently, Japanese are well versed in the concept too. :wink:
