Takara
« on: March 10, 2018, 05:37:54 PM »
I hope this is not in the wrong thread.

My ULTIMATE pony grail is a Takara pony. Milky and Pinky are  my 2 favorites. What is a starting price for them? They do not have to be in box or come with their box. I want to know how much money I need to start saving up to obtain my grail.
          Thank you for any advice.

There have been a few sellers recently willing to part with their Milky Takara:

Nirvana grails:  Reverse Gusty (upgrade), Peru Windy and Moonstone (upgrade), Brazil TAF upgrades, Argie Powder w/ white hair (upgrade), French Windy and Moondancer (upgrades), Spain TAF's, TE's, and piggies.  These are my biggest wants, but I'm looking for tons more nirvanas, especially Greeks, Brazilians, and Peruvians.  Feel free to PM me for sales or trades.  But please note that I'm also fairly picky.

Pinky ;)

ETA:
Here is a recent PC for Milky.

I assume Pinky is less sought after. However, I feel like there are less people after them, so prices are a bit lower than the past.

I once was in the market for a loose Pinky which was without clothes. The seller was asking USD 1000. The condition was good but not mint. I have a MIB Pinky with beauty parlor. I got her for USD 2500. I would say USD 1000+ for a nude one, but Banditpony is right, it seems as if less people are looking for Takaras right now. I personally can‘t understand that Pinky is less Popular than the other Takaras. She has a beautiful colour combination in my opinion.

The Fuwa Fuwa that is currently on EBay is much too expensive. It is also strange that two different people are selling the exact same pony( with the same photos)! I personally would keep my hands away.

9_9 Neither of them are the owners of that one. It's listed on a Japanese site for 248,000 yen, so they've stolen the pictures, and I assume would be a middleman ?

Yes the whole thing is very fishy. I was wondering if I should report them to Ebay. I too think that the item belongs to the seller in Japan. I have seen the photo too on the japanese Website it has been there for ages, since it is a bit too pricey.

Someone should email the seller on the Japanese site and see whether or not they know about this. I don't have a membership direct on the site in question, I use a proxy, so I can't, or I would...

But the other two sellers are both in Japan also. However the original seller is in Kyoto metropolitan area, the two on ebay are in Sapporo and Kobe respectively. There's a lot of distance between Sapporo and Kobe but not so much between Kobe and Kyoto so it's possible there;s some link between the Japan site auction and that one, but it seems unlikely.

Someone should contact the original seller and let them know.

I‘m a member on the Japanese Site and I try to contact them ASAP and let them know. I asked one of the sellers on EBay how it comes that they both are selling the exact same pony and the seller answered that he is the owner of the pony and the other person would buy the pony from him if it gets sold. I contacted the seller who is asking less for it. If the story is true what I don‘t believe the other person would be stupid to think that people pay 1000USD more for the same pony.

Also asked the seller who is asking more, but he didn’t answer. It was about a week ago.

I have a hard time believe either is the owner, based on what they have for sale. Both have things that you can find from multiple sellers on the JP site. And neither has all the stuff that the original JP seller has listed. Ah well *shrug*

That's why I suggested contacting the original seller on the JP site. If you've done that, aniko, there's not a lot else you can do really :/

I also think it strange that only 2 of the images are being used on ebay from the original six or seven, but they're the same two. It's just such a huge span of geography...

Besides, even if Kobe and Kyoto are close, they're not so close as to be the same thing.
