Momoi auction madness

Two Momoi auctions that I have been watching for a while ended early this morning. Unfortunately I didn't end up getting either of them. The prices are..high..to say the least.

$90 USD for an Esper Mami CD is pretty crazy.

Virtualianco is a bit more understandable, but I still wasn't expecting it to go over 10000.

I would have bought the Virtualianco CD for its historic value but because of my incorrect expectation, I ended up a few yen short in my auction account and I couldn't transfer additional funds fast enough to steal the auction. This thing went for 6000 yen used only 2 years ago, and has done nothing but appreciate in value over time.

Oh well. I've put 20000 yen in my auction account. Next time I'll get it for sure!

One thing I am happy about though...I bought Ippozutsu! at retail back when it first came out. Recently I've been seeing it go for 5000+ yen regularly, with the latest at 8000 (although no bids yet). Another lesson in why it always pays to order limited edition stuff fast and early :)
