Could you tell me more about the gold man statue you have? i have just aquired one and wondered where they came from
also im an avid collector just wondering if there is a good database of DQ items to use as a collection reference also from a rarity point of view just wonderinf if anyone knows what the rare bits are and what a price guide might be buiy out of yahoo jp is an expensive exercise as it stands so paying fair prices is something im keen on
I know quite a bit about where lots of my swag came from. I can also give you some general prices if you want...they may be a year or so outdated but I'd imagine they only went up.
As for the goldman, there were supposedly only about 50-100 made and were only given to Enix employees in the 80's as a sort of reward for good work during the DQ1/DQ2 era. The only known Americans they were ever given to were the translators of DW1. Funny thing was that Adam (?) of Nintendo Power was a translator for DW1 and he said he was the only one who got one and was shocked to see that I owned one because he said something along the lines of he only knew 5 people who had them. I've heard other numbers, one person suggested 50 were made, a guy in Japan said it was more like 100. It's hard to know how many exist today.
Hey thats great information on the gold man i'll be one of the lucky few, fingers crossed it arrives ok .. i would be very interested in your general prices, desirable items etc.. ive been adding to my collection slowly over time, havent had alot to do with teh plush tos, but just starting to add some, browsing yahoo jp there are so many wonderful things id love to buy
