This is a good collection up for sale, even has a Blue Walder.

Though to be honest, half the fun is in tracking things down. I'd feel a bit cheated if I just went out and bought something like this

I think it's lazy on the part of the seller. Buying a job lot like this is too expensive for most people, and the kind of hard core collector who would actually stump up this kind of money would be likely to have some of the items already. It probably works out as a bargain and maybe you could even buy the lot and sell the items on individually at profit. But the seller could have made more money if they could just be bothered to list the items separately. I for one would have bid on the Satan King.

Here is a similar whole collection sale of monster model kits on Ebay:

It's been up for ages. Again there are some items I would bid on if they were listed separately. The seller is too lazy to even photograph the lot.

The opposite is just as annoying, when someone has an incomplete Micronauts Battle Cruiser so they list every single damn part as a separate item for a couple of bucks each. It makes for pages and pages of scrolling.

The lot went for 300,000 Yen, which I make to be about $3k or 2k.

Can't make up my mind if that was good value or not. The Blue Walder usually goes for 100,000 Yen, but the others?

Suspect that compared to 10 years ago when Jap collectors were going mad for this stuff its a good deal

Maybe a better deal for THEM. Outside of Japan the yen conversion is still quite awful.
