This is a BUSINESS. This is not a charity
operation and dealers are here to make money. Why
don't you flame your precious Yahoo Japan dealers
who rip you off more than ANYONE in America. Maybe
if people don't bid outrageous prices on Yahoo,
setting a precedent, then when people like Rick go
over, he won't have to pay such high prices and
resell for higher. When you bid high on Japan,
these Japanese think that is what Americans pay and
so they resell to dealers for higher.
What makes this a different business from any other
business that people can't make money???? I would
love to know. It is a hobby, sure.. So? Are
people not allowed to make money? It isn't about
being GREEDY. It is about making a living.
Yann and Asylum...
Sometimes they have great cels, great prices... but
to be honest, they DO NOT have the quality of cel
that Anime Link has. Bottom line. Both of those
dealers, I KNOW will agree with this.
Anime Link has the BEST quality out there and MANY,
MANY satisfied customers will agree with you. You
pay for quality.
If you don't have that much money, then don't
collect cels. It is an expensive hobby. Stick
with lower priced, lower quality cels then. It
isn't fair for you to publicly bash someone because
you are mad you can't afford something.
Yeah, a cel you have been after for a while, you
and everyone else...... do you think that if Rick
goes to Japan, pays for airfare, hotel, expenses,
that he really is making that much money? I think
Yann has illustrated this point clearly too.
Collecting faberge eggs is expensive, collecting
rare cars is expensive. Only certain people can
afford it. You are lucky there are still cheaper
cels you can purchase. So honestly, before you
write something this rude, I believe you should try
and put yourself in someone else's shoes.
Rick is one of the nicest people and he is
EXTREMELY fair.... He will always try to work with
you. You have no clue what goes on in a dealer's
life. What if this is their only means of support?
Why shouldn't they be allowed to make money? And
trust me, what you think is greedy is realistic.
Especially in Japan. Why don't you come to Japan
yourself and try to find cels like Rick does? It is
because you never, ever could.
Anyhow, good luck collecting cels.
