Cave art set packed right. Everything individually wrapped. Made my own box for a proper fit. Extra layer of cardboard under, on two sides, and top. Air cushions are on top as well just in case. Thick bubbles on the two sides that didn’t get extra cardboard.

Another jerk on YAJ to add to the blacklist: rcxd5023

The dude threw a huge passive-aggressive hissy fit because I dared to use a convenience store payment and it was within 48 hours instead of 24 hours (Yahoo allows 5 days btw). I didn't leave feedback until after I tested the game the day after receiving it, so he gave me "very bad successful bidder" feedback; the worst there is. I apologized for the (perceived) tardiness and he shot back with anti-foreigner racist bullshit. Avoid.

Edit: reason for not going to 7-11 within 24 hours; heavy rain and wind all day. He lives in the same area as me too….
Yup, one of the worst things about YAJ. Looking at that feedback history, it's always the same styled xenophobic/racist, gaslighting replies like clockwork.

Thanks for the heads up. I will make sure to pre-emptively add him to my blacklist. That user and ponkichi1231 will make great buddies.

Didn’t use air cushions on this one as the boxes I had were so well fitting and thick. The board has over double the bubbles it came with though if not triple : )

The art has packed in cardboard and was placed in the center of the first box. The first box was then bubble wrapped. Another piece of cardboard then went on top of this, and then the box was finally closed.

The original post has been updated.

Rates are now 2000 yen per hour for all orders not currently in process. This is $15.62 USD, so I'm not making any more money off of this than I was in November when the yen was much stronger. The current exchange rate is 128.07 yen to 1 USD.

Most items under 100k are charged between 2000 and 6000 yen service fee.

For items over 100k yen, the fee is a flat 7%.

Thank you everyone for your continued support. This has been a very fun and rewarding experience so far. I'm glad that I've been able to help many people so far : )

@Joko3 and I went on a digital adventure together. I went cruising YAJ for Gundam sticks so I could put together a Monkey Ball panel. I found what I needed BIN so I contacted Joko to handle the transfer to the states.

I figured since I was having stuff sent I may as well look at the DDP boards available. To my surprise there was a DDP board available with a day left on the auction and a low bid on it up to that point. I contacted Joko again and told him I'd like to take a swing at it, which he agreed to. I sent him my top dollar bid via PayPal so we could make it happen. He gave me some quick insight into YAJ bidding strategy and we had a plan. Unfortunately another bidder came in with a bigger wallet and we lost (by quite a bit) and Joko refunded the deposit. I happen to look at Tops shortly after to check their DDP stock and Tops had a fresh DDP up for sale, so I couldn't help but think that we got sniped by them and they went for a quick flip. Joko agreed it was possible so he put together an inquiry to see board pics with Tops. S/Ns between the YAJ and Tops listing didn't match according to pics, so nothing nefarious. It was a fun little investigation.

The Gundam sticks came in great shape and very well packaged.
Thanks Joko!

Just a heads up in case anyone has been looking.

There is currently a legit Pro Gear CPS2 board at Surugaya right now. It's been for sale for about a month now. My inbox is packed full of Cave requests, but nobody has asked about this game. I believe this is a great game, especially at less than half the price of most of their other offerings. Hit me up if you want it : )

I guess the less requests is due to the multi and conversions being easily available compared to other cave games?

But a really good game I would like to say :) More so than a few of their other games.

^ Most likely yes. However, we are also talking about the same company whose cardboard boxes are valuable. This board will only increase in value over time : )

Joey helped me out recently with a rather large purchase (for me at least) and things could not have gone smoother.

Communication, packaging and attention to detail were beyond stellar. Worth every penny. Thanks again for helping me with this.
