I'm getting a one-day job for decent wages next Saturday; I have the graduation Tshirt on hold from someone, so as soon as I have the money I'll be ordering it.
i have one on hold too..you'll have to fight me for it:P

@matt9210: Yeah, sorry :( I was asking Himalia about one particular shirt and he's like "sorry, that's recently been on hold... BUT I have THIS shirt."

The one item I REALLY want above all others (granted, I'm sure that this graduation shirt will be the pride of my collection, hahaha), is the Rikaishite Onna no Ko single.

^ Good for you, at least it's going to a big Rika fan and not a general fan :D I couldn't have got it even if it wasn't on hold when I saw it, just gutted the item finally comes up, and I have no money anyway :(

That shouldn't be hard to find if you look on YJA, I've seen the full collection of the FC CDs on eBay a couple of times too. I don't often see the CDs sold on their own.

The pride of my collection is the Rika FC DVD from when she went to Hawaii for an FC Tour. It took a few months to pay off the money for that, as that was when my parents gave me pocket money, and even then I was kinda indecisive about Rika ^^;  I saw the error of my ways though  :lol:

Wow, awesome collection guys... I love looking at people's Rika collections  :wub:


Well, I guess I should post my Rika "collection" as well. :P



Yep, that's pretty much it. XD It's the picture I got from winning the JPH!P "Kill Me Kiss Me" contest (along with the CD). =D It's one of the very few pictures I have, so I treasured it by putting it on my wall. Yay!

Naomi, you need MORE!
 :otomerika:


Here's my H&A collection:


Mad props to my homie daigong for hooking me up with that signed poster :thumbup

 :wub:
I really want those photocards... and something signed by them too. Imma jealous.



AW YEAH HOMIE!! You went to work at the Merch Table LIKE A BAWS!

Got some new goods 8D just to fill a HelloStoreUSA fixed shipping :lol:


Also Linna2040 had an extra giant Rika pic so THANKS :fap

Holy cow, dai.
Stop making me jealous, I'm already broke now as it is >.< hahaha...
But I really love that larger photo... is it A4 size? So pretty.


I got all of those from Yahoo Japan Auctions, through Celga. Personally I think they're a bad service, but other people say they're good. For these Rika purchases, they charged me roughly 3500 yen for shipping via Surface Mail, and that was the cheapest option they offered. I've spoke to others and they said it shouldn't cost that much for the items I had posted. As expected they also charge a service fee, but it all adds up when your charged a fee for each individual auction, so in my case, 4. And then internal shipping within Japan.

Don't go with Celga! I think CrescentShop is much better. I use that when I don't have my extra personal service at hand.
The fees @CS are cheaper, they also allow customers real-time, automated bidding, which is a BLESSING. They are also really professional and manage things very quickly and efficiently.

HOWEVER, if I were to recommend you guys a YJA BIDDING SERVICE, I would recommend you Edison Chow. He's just an average guy trying to live his dream studying in Japan. Here is a link to his service: http://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopic=1041719

He is SO nice. He listens to all my requests (I always ask for cheapest domestic shipping within Japan, he does it for me, CS doesn't respond to that request). He used to have his service fee/commission at only 100 YEN + 10% of final price, but it has gone up since because he feels overworked for little money. I heartily recommend him though. He's just an awesome service provider  :love:



3500YEN!! woah.shipping sucks!

You think 3500 YEN is a lot?

Since my first shopping spree in October last year, I think I've spent about $3000AUD on shipping alone (domestically and internationally). I'm not kidding.  :bleed eyes:
that's some 226000 JPY for you. It costs almost as much as the products themselves.



@matt9210: Yeah, sorry :( I was asking Himalia about one particular shirt and he's like "sorry, that's recently been on hold... BUT I have THIS shirt."

The one item I REALLY want above all others (granted, I'm sure that this graduation shirt will be the pride of my collection, hahaha), is the Rikaishite Onna no Ko single.

So many of us get a few of our goodies from Himalia! So lucky, I want a grad t-shirt too >.<

I can help you with the 'Holy Grail', as they have deemed it here...  :P

Looky at what arrived a few weeks ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



 :inlove:

I can sell it to you, if you want, serenyty. I have 5 copies of the Rikaishite Onna no Ko single now... I'm not sure HOW it happened (I won a lot of whole sales and stuff).

True, what matt said... it's not so hard to find anymore, I see it popping up at YJA quite frequently recently. I saw it going for 1 YEN, with free shipping, and nobody bidded for it  :shocked
Whilst other sellers are selling it for over 10000 yen.. it really depends, I think you can find it quite cheaply there. The only thing you have to deal with is service fees and commission charged by a service provider, and all the shipping that has to be done. Which raises the cost of it to more than double.

You can either buy it with the case containing the other 9 solo singles, or you can buy just the one Rikaishite. But if you buy the single one, just know that the value of the other 9 will go down, since I'll have to sell them separately too (and so I have to adjust prices accordingly). But that's only if you want to buy it from me - I'm sure you can find it on YJA. I don't charge crazy commission and only one way shipping though so just thought I'd offer...  :)

Ooh, jealous! That bunny plush is REALLY cute; I don't know if I'm intense enough to get a wota tattoo, but if I did it'd be of Rika's bunny drawing.

I recently got these in the mail from Beecubed...




:D I'm super happy about this purchase.

Wota tattoo? Whoa, that's taking it pretty seriously!
I've never been a tattoo person. Never smoke or drunk either, just that kinda gal. ^__^
But I can see how a Rika bunny tattoo would work.. should you one day lose interest in Rika ( :shocked:), the bunny would still represent positivity and happiness <333

Bunny plushie (otherwise known as the 'monstrous rabbit that won't fit in the box' to my service provider  :rofl:) is so squishy and adorable. She makes my bed all that much more inviting to slip into  :love:

You'll have more opportunities, don't worry! Things keep appearing. I think I should check YJA less, coz I end up finding things to buy every time I visit, it's really bad >.< but I never want to feel like I've missed out on something, especially a bargain, so I keep checking. It's one endless, vicious cycle  :bleed eyes: hhahaa..

Thanks dai!
Yes, the pin and the plushie  :heart: I have another of the same pin somewhere in my box of Rika goodies... will definitely put up for somebody here @ the Chuuch if you want it ^___^

OK, first of all, sorry if this post is in the wrong place. I didn't see a thread for selling stuff, so thought the best thing to do would be to post the Rika related stuff I have here, where it's most likely people will want them xD

Really don't want to sell these, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I have to :/ Send me a pm if interested :)

This is a Fanclub only DVD, and I paid roughly 7400 yen for this, so I think this is a good price considering.

Sure. You'll have to wait a bit though, once I get a shop up and running to sell off all my duplicates :P

Kjpop!
Ebay is good for CDs/DVDs and the odd item (I got the towel from Rika's grad concert there, so random!  XD)
But our main source is Yahoo Japan Auctions. If you don't have a bank account in Japan though, it's likely you'll have to use a bidding service who will bid for you, receive the item for you and send the item to you. Very, very costly. But yeah, if you're big enough a fan and have some cash to spare, it should be no big deal. ^___^

I plan to open a shop sometime soon, since my drawers are overflowing now (I've gotten over 150kgs of Rika/MM stuff since last year, and more to come T____T). I have quite a few duplicates of Rika things, so watch out for goodies you might want!

^ It really is, have you downloaded it yet? I think it's an epic concert  :wub:

Holy cow, what would make you need to sell off these lovelies?  :shocked
Hope you're... like... okay...

It was hard, believe me. But they're on the more expensive end of my collection, and seeing as I really need the money, I haven't got much choice  :cry:  I'm just hoping if it does get sold, I won't have to pay ridiculous prices when I want to buy it back another day. Hopefully my money issues get resolved so I don't have to sell it. Somebody's already bought the birthday t-shirt, but I'm not overly fussed because I made sure to keep the Ongaku Gatas Rika T-shirt :D

Sorry daigong, that's never happening :P I couldn't even consider selling that one!

It IS an epic concert; I kept toying with the idea of tracking down a copy of the DVD myself, but I don't have a region free/region 2 DVD player; actually, I basically just use my laptop for TV/movies nowadays, since I don't actually own a TV (I have one when I'm at home, but at college I don't). So I don't have H!P related DVDs because of that.

Just got Rika stuff in the mail today! I got Rika's second PB in the mail and it's surprisingly in really really great condition, since it was technically used and I got it cheap!

Now I just have... seven more PBs to go ^^; (I have Rika Ishikawa, Karen and 24 Twenty Four)
