Super Rare Rozen Maiden Shinku Super Dollfie with the Author’s Autograph


If you are a Super Dollfie collector, you probably already know that Rozen Maiden Super Dollfies are one of the most sought-after Dollfies out there. Any character from Rozen Maiden series that has been adopted by Volks’ Super Dollfie could cost anywhere from 200,000 yen to 800,000 yen on auction (could vary depending on the condition, timing, scarcity). Shinku (真紅), the main heroine of Rozen Maiden, is the first one to be adopted into a SD in 2005.

Now, this auction listing we found on Yahoo Japan Auction today is even rarer than a normal SD Shinku.
SD Shinku Rozen Maiden 2005 with Peach-Pit Autograph



Yes, it’s signed by Peach-Pit, the manga creator team consisting of Banri Sendo and Shibuko Ebara, the creator of Rozen Maiden manga series!
When SD Shinku first came out, dolls were sold exclusively to its lottery winners (as customary of many Super Dollfies, not everyone who wants it can buy it). Additionally, one hundred pieces of Shinku dolls were sold separately with Peach-Pit’s autographs, and this is one of them.

As you can see in the photo, it is in beautiful, near mint condition, never been opened or played with, and includes all the original parts.




Take a look at how she looks after dressed up. The following photos are borrowed from Mokomoko, a Japanese doll review site.

She’s absolutely gorgeous! Peach-Pit must have been happy to see their creation turned into an actual, beautiful ball-jointed doll.

An Extremely Rare Super Sailor Moon Baby Face Doll from BANDAI Found on Auction!

This might be one of the greatest finds of Sailor Moon toys I’ve shown on this blog. If you are a Sailor Moon collector, you’ve got to check this out!

BANDAI’s so-called Sailor Moon Baby Face Doll (Japanese name: いつもなかよしスーパーセーラームーン) is extremely rare, one of the most sought-after Sailor Moon dolls sold during the time of its TV run.



Around the same time this was released, there was also Sailor Chibi Moon version of the same baby face doll line. You see Chibi Moon version occasionally on Yahoo Japan Auction, but this, Super Sailor Moon version is extremely difficult to find even in Japan. And especially when it’s in a near mint condition like this, with an original packaging, it must be a collector’s dream come true. The same doll was recently sold for 70,000 yen just for the doll itself, without the box!

The current highest bid is only 35,000 yen. Two more days till the auction ends!
Good luck bidding!

SUPER RARE! Popy Large-scale Big Falcon Base for Voltes V

A great find for Popy toys and Voltes V collectors!

Popy Large-scale Otorijima Big Falcon Base for Voltes V


popy-large-scale-voltes-v-big-falcon-base-rare-rinkya-japan2 popy-large-scale-voltes-v-big-falcon-base-rare-rinkya-japan3

(Voltes V on the left is not included in the set)

This is a SUPER RARE toy released from Popy. You rarely see this on eBay or Yahoo Japan Auction. It is even more difficult to find than Popynica Chogokin Big Falcon Base, which is already a rare item itself.
The five docks installed in this base can store Popy’s Volt Machines (sold separately), which makes it a neat way to display your Voltes V collection.

Since the auction photos don’t really show how it works, I pulled some photos from an external site to show what the inside looks like (please note this is not the same item as the one listed on the auction right now). These are photos taken by a collector from Fun to Toy.


You can see that it’s built almost like a parking lot for machines…


Inside the dock is decorated with cardboard, printed with interior patterns.


There aren’t many gimmicks to the base, but having an option to be able to dock individual Volt Machines in compartments makes it an attractive item to collectors.

Don’t miss this chance to add this to your collection! We’ve got 5 more days to bid!

Also, check out Popynica Chogokin Big Falcon Base too. It’s more commonly seen on auctions than the one mentioned above, but still a very nice, highly collectible toy.

Its massive 1/100-scale, 20-inch tall body, loaded with built-in gimmicks, and the attention to details made it way worth the money, and it has been highly sought after on used market ever since.

  • Arms move up/down
  • Hands rotate at the wrists

The appearance of Mechagodzilla is based on 1974 model. Watch the promo video below to see what amazing actions it is capable of!

If so, don’t hesitate and bid on BANDAI 20” R/C Mechagodzilla on Yahoo Japan Auction!

On somewhere like Amazon Marketplace, it’s being listed for 500,000 yen, but on our Auction, its current highest bid is only 101,000 yen, and if you really don’t want to miss it, the seller is offering buyout option for 150,000 yen! So don’t hesitate and get it!

“Human-size” Gundam Models – Bandai HY2M RX-78-2 Gundam

You may not have a room for actual-size Gundam in your house, but what if it was “human-size” model?


HY2M (Hyper Hybrid Model) 1/12 scale Gundam was originally released by Bandai in 2006 for a limited number. This model comes in 3 boxes (originally, could be shipped in more boxes for this auction), with 260 pieces. When completed and standing, it reaches 1.5 meter (5 foot) tall and weighs 35kg (77 lb). Posable joints allow you to set Gundam up in different poses, and what makes it even cooler is that it’s pre-recorded with a bunch of SE from the original show!

hy2m-03 hy2m-05 hy2m-04

Details of this product (according to Bandai’s specification):

– 260 parts total to complete the model. They are all pre-painted, so you don’t need to do a painting job youself. However, this particular auction item has been modified with additional shading and panel line enhancement with black lines to make it look even more realistic.
Compare the original (left) and auctioned item (right) for panel line enhancement.

hy2m-02 hy2m

– No super glue or adhesive necessary. Only bolts and nuts are used for building the model (just like real Gundam would be!)
– The materials used for HY2M 1/12 Gundam is common materials used for other plastic models from Bandai. Therefore, if you have experience modifying Gundam models before, you can basically apply the same techniques and mod it however you want.
– Shoulder joints can be locked into one angle to allow more flexibility and rigidity when posing the model. Elbows, wrists, fingers, forearms, neck, waist, are all movable and posable.
– It comes with a remote control to activate sound effects. There are 15 types of SE, including gatling guns, start-up sound, etc. And also it controls illumination of eyes, gatling guns, etc.
– Comes with a building manual. Just follow the instructions (and patience, it is estimated to take 4 hours of building work) and you’ll have a human-size Gundam!

Included Equipment:
Beam Rifle, Beam Saber, and Gundam Shield

Recorded Sound Effect list:
– Start-up sound
– Hatch open/close
– Camera eyes
– Target scope activation

Customized Dior Homme 05SS Three Wolves Tuxedo Jacket


Auction URL:  https://www.rinkya.com/new/en/auction-b136873383 

The classic, best of the best creation from Dior Homme during the reign of celebrated Hedi Slimane, the 05SS Three Wolves Tuxedo Jacket is up for auction now. On the back is a beautiful embroidery of three wolves inspired from mythical figure, Cerberus.  It is a rare, highly collectible item desired by many Dior Homme fans. It has a relatively low starting price for a reason, but it could be a unique, special choice for you.

What makes this jacket special is not only because it’s Dior Homme Three Wolves, but it has actually been custom resized to fit a smaller frame of body. Originally size 46, the jacket was too big for the seller to wear, so it was modified to be much tighter around the shoulders. Thus, the current measuring is:

  • 36cm shoulder width
  • 62cm long
  • 13 cm arms-length
  • 10cm around cuffs

Even though this is a men’s brand, It could actually fit perfectly for a woman. Of course, it is an ideal jacket for a man with a more slim body type. This is an used item, but the jacket has been kept in a near-mint condition, and it’s been only worn a few times. If you have the a body type that often finds difficulty getting the right size straight from the retail, or if you like to own a custom-fitted Dior Homme jacket, this could possibly be an ideal item for you. Its tight fit will give you a nice, sexy silhouette and makes you special and “different” from everyone.

Only a couple of days left, give it some thoughts and bid soon if you want. Start bidding now!
(*The seller will charge extra 5,000 JPY to have the jacket cleaned by professional cleaner after purchased)
