    Here’s one; these hold their value pretty well. The Penguin is pretty cool too!

    Thanks for the age.
    Don't know much about auctions in Japan. How do you get it shipped to you?

    You setup a FromJapan account and they proxy bid for you and ship it to you.

    There’s also a bunch more arepachi from the 90’s on yahoo japan which are quite rare here in the US since weren’t imported in large quantities like the Penguin and Apollo 1.

    You would probably get a better price on an Apollo 1 domestically IF you could find somebody willing to part with one.

    Here’s my favorite; The President!

    I saw that one. Looking at the picture of the back it is taken at an odd angle and looks like the bottom two circuit boards are loose and coming away from the machine in the center. I emailed the seller about the shipping cost, $535 to me, for the UPS three day air. They said the could ship UPS ground but it still is $336. I asked if they would double box and they said yes and would put a blanket around it. I'm not feeling good about this one.

    I asked for some photos of the back side.s-l1600~2.jpgs-l1600 (1)~2.jpg

    I can see that the circuit boards look out of place and no adapter for the card to fire
