    Default Smart ball anyone

    Im getting one when I win the lottery, but for now I'll have to wait. Thought I would share. I don't know if the regular shippers could handle something ths big overseas.

    Anyone remember what they were asking for this? I notice this exact machine is AGAIN up for auction in Japan with a crazy price point of 200,000 yen

    probably the same price. I see items listed for years that don't sell, but the seller keeps the price the same or moves it up.

    Here is a nice looking Smart Ball Starting at 50,000 yen running for two more days but will most likely be around a while longer. This looks to be a local pick-up only near Tokyo. I'm afraid to ask shippers if they would touch it and what they would charge for international shipping. Oh, and it comes with around 100 balls.

    while 50k Yen is a fair price, the lack of people willing to ship is killing my chances.

    As much as I'd like one and I could be okay with that price, the added shipping cost (whatever it would be) puts it out of my reach for now.

    Depending on your budget it could be worth inquiring about shipping. I'd contact From Japan giving them the auction info and ask two starter questions. Do they handle the larger items and ship them internationally and would they send out a driver to pick it up? Now for a cost most will do anything. The seller is 1-2 hours away from their warehouse so it seems reasonable that they might do it. I'd guess that this would ship in two large cartons and a final price would be 2.5-3 times the original auction price.

    For me that would be $1125-1350 final cost which isn't happening just yet. But someone else is always in a better position to grab the goods

    Wow! This one sold for a cool 79,500 with 17 bids in the final hours. Was it won by a member here?

    I guess it is good that we at least have a vague guide to their value. 200k yen is waaaay too much for these, but if I could get one shipped here for like $1200 CAD I would be in.
