I made a special note to wake up today. Not for my job interview, but instead to make sure I put my final bid in on a special rare item I recently found on Yahoo Japan. The alarm buzzed but I paid no heed, until I woke up to find what the alarm was for: I had missed the end time for a MIB Generation 2 ATB Megatron on Yahoo Japan!
If I were ever to get a decent price on this guy, snagging it under the radar from Yahoo Japan was my chance, but I had missed it! I rushed to my fancy new laptop and checked the auction as my heart sank. The auction had indeed ended. I scrolled down and my grief dissipated. The end price was 332,300 Yen! That’s over $3500 USD! Now I don’t feel so bad for missing the bid because there was no way I was bidding that high!
I will probably never add this special piece to my Starscream collection, for even this Collecticon has his limits. Congrats to whomever was the lucky buyer though!
