Auctions~♥ are an addiction!…thinking now that I may need to attend an “AAA” meeting (“Auction~addicted~anonymous”) or maybe if they invented one of those patches that I could wear :P! One thing for sure though within the rapidly~escalating~bidding~wars on AKB photos~* on Yahoo! Japan Auctions is that, if your favorite♥ members which you’re chasing after are UnderGirls you indeed have an advantage over those bidding on senbatsu~girls♥ (人∀`*)！Now though with the “Janken~senbatsu” complete for AKB’s upcoming single where the UnderGirls dominated the results~* =), I do wonder if my time with bidding without much competition on A~min♥ will end soon? And likewise with the many other UnderGirls now making senbatsu?..so perhaps it was lucky~* ne~ to have acquired these A~min♥ shashin for so little in the past weeks? I mean, will the wota who seriously I think control these auctions’ value in bidding reaching high~or~low react accordingly (・c_・;)？
Most of the photos I won on auctions~* are those most coveted theater photos~♥ and here going back to early 2010 with just a few sets/individual photos being from their record label’s releases, events and B.L.T. Still it’s astonishing when you see just how many auctions are out there with the very same sets at the same time just so widespread~! So it again bears the question of how the theater sets are actually sold to fans?….I mean if you stood in line on the day of their release each month is one allowed to purchase as many photos as their heart~desires♥?…or are there limits? Still just the possibility of the sets being random in members you’d receive I shudder to think….like then omg! how are so many wota completing sets then?…having then enough to auction them in such widespread form (・o・)?! I dearly hope~* that fans are allowed to choose their favorite♥ member’s photos when standing in what I can only imagine to be soooo long lines when there are released each month so disappointment or heartbreak are out of the equation for such dedication~* =). And then there’s the 7~Eleven BE@RBRICK….
..strap…lol I don’t know why that became a <—link above ??? XD!
These were released awhile ago and have been running wild~* on auctions for some time now, curiously though the A~min BE@RBRICK which I bid on is marked as “NOT FOR SALE” as in promotional?…..so while these were actually being sold for 700 yen each with a total of 48 (16 per team~♥) being available so perhaps there are promo versions also being sold in auctions?…which isn’t uncommon. Also so awesome that each BE@ARBRICK design was personally created by each of the 48 AKB girls ー(*≧∀≦)ノ！、A~h my A~min♥ BE@RBRICK strap…..
…said to be ‘unbreakable’ on its packaging but I mean have you witnessed how some children um abuse their toys…lol oh wait no it says on the back that BE@RBRICK’s are an adult collectible and not a toy…Whew! I was just thinking about that car commercial where that boy is smashing and abusing all of his toy cars lol (´。・д・。)！！
A~min’s♥ so pretty and love~love her BE@RBRICK design mmm…I’m yet to release her from her packaging which if you’ve been reading here for awhile you know I’ll surely do :P! U~n and I’m still a collector’s nightmare when it comes to any kinds of figures (*´艸`)。。。I’ll open everything as I’m just thinking that I’ve no intention of ever re~selling them =).
Gorgeous A~min♥! Scans just below ↓↓↓
