    This is a thread to post any rare or unusual DEALS you find! I decided to start it because I found some more deals and maybe it would be good to post them separately instead of burying them in the random thread.

    The rules:
    - This is mostly for rare musical items unless you find a major deal to share
    - Double-posting is OK here
    - Try to follow the format in my first post - no inline pictures, and include a link and price
    - If you don't know how to order from Japanese sites you can check our shopping guide at http://www.scape.sc/shopping.php

    Now let's begin! ::cred::

    I dunno, no one sets out to sell their own item as a "deal" ;)
    I'd like to keep this for items on auction sites or in online stores though. You're welcome to post it in the random thread or in a selling thread of your own :)

    EDIT: also I edited your post and added a new guideline up top. I think this thread will be unreadable if we put inline pictures of every item.

    I've got a feeling I really need to stay out of this thread or my wallet will commit suicide <_< But I'm so so tempted by that Közi live disc...
    This is an awesome idea for a thread though ^^

    D: systems of romance! I need that CD!

    how often does it appear on auctions? ::weepy:: i don't have enough money for the 50$ deposit on crescent-shop.

    does anyone know a better site like crescent-shop that only charges a small fee for them buying you things [with your money] overseas? :|

    There have been a few copies on auction forever, but most of them 5000Y or more.

    I recommend Celga. Here's their fee schedule: http://celga.com/fee.html
    You have to send them half of your max. bid before bidding, but there's no $50 minimum like Crescent Shop. Then you pay them in full for the remaining balance, fees, and shipping once the auction is all worked out.

    How come they've spelt it "Malice Mizel"? D: Even if they are japanese and confuse their L's and R's, Malice Mizer's name is always written (even on that thing they took a picture of XD) in bold capitals.

    could you use the url code? a page being stretched out by a link is no better than an image in my opinon. D:

    Why would Mana be throwing Kozi guitar picks? :lol: I wouldn't bid on that.

    That guy selling the Masquerade (DEG Kyo's old band) demo finally gave up and started it at 1000Y with no reserve:
    http://page2.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b80700320

    Anyone going to bid? ::meev::

    EDIT: and two old-school L'arc-en-Ciel demos ending in about 8 hours, currently going for ~5000Y each:

    Malice Mizer's "societe de parente" video, 3 days left, 5000Y:
    http://page16.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/u19344836
    Not an amazing price but the video doesn't come up that often.

    Damn, that's expensive!
    My copy of Voyage cost 14 bucks...It wasn't a first press, but is that extra booklet really that special?
    It'll be fun to watch the auction though and see how much people are willing to pay for that. :roll:

    Ebay gets crazy expensive. Every copy of the original Silent Hill goes for at least $100. ::cred::

    Ebay has an ILLUMINATI poster going for $5 right now! ::weepy::
