Remember Yahoo! Auctions, the short-lived competitor to eBay? Yahoo is actually quite popular in Japan, and as a result it’s still in service. Here’s what sold for 926,001 yen ($9,139) just last week, a completed plastic model kit of 1/100 Master Grade ν Gundam Version Ka. Hint: click on “View full size” to see it in its full glory!

This is incredible
The description of the changes made me laugh w This guy is serious
Makes me sad to think it was built to be sold
Way too cheap. Bad effort/profit ratio…
Wow, this guy’s totally a pro. I wonder if he made any profit from this
It’s so perfect!
If I had $10,000 I’d buy it, and I’d want to receive it from the creator in person
First time I saw it, it was still going for $6k… Wow
It started at $1, amazing
It doesn’t look like 1/100, more like 1/20
It’s so detailed that I got a headache from staring at it
I don’t understand you otaku, this is so expensive
He said it took 10 months to make this, $10k is about right
Selling this for that price after 10 months of work, totally in the red. Go get a real job
At this level, it’s art! Not that I’m buying it
Bandai, hire this man!
