In Topic: Gambler Or Play It Safe. What Has Been Your Biggest Risk?

16 September 2014 - 11:21 AM

I've already mentioned the two Nomura Batman Robots that I bought via Ebay but the listings made it a difficult decision both times...poor pictures, sorry picture ( singular) plus a vague description, oh! and 0 feedback on one and just a few feedbacks on the other one. On both occasions I actually phoned the sellers to sound them out, which boosted my confidence and calmed my nerves. So then I waited....and waited....and after waiting for five weeks for the first one I rang the main sorting office here in Perth ( Aus ) to see what had happened, I gave the tracking number and was told that as the tracking code had the letters PER in the code, Batman had gone to PERU!!!!  :eeek:  I said NO!!!! surely not????  :eeek: but after some serious deliberation and re checking it was agreed that PER was in fact Perth and NOT Peru <phew> . So I waited a few more days and he arrived. I had a similiar delay on the second Batman but he arrived safe and sound....it's typical that the two most expensive Ebay items I've bought took by far the longest to arrive! :frustrate:

Thanks for the info Morbius and you're absolutely right, they seem to come in batches. I'd be happy with a nice clean unboxed version, and thanks for the info on the early versions with the knurled knobs on the battery doors. I quite often have a look in the non robot listings in case ( as you say) an antique dealer has one listed. I'll get one sooner or later. I never thought I'd get a Nomura Batman robot, but now I have two!

It's frustrating, I don't have a Mechanized and prices are all over the place.


If I don't bid they go for a few hundred...


if I DO bid, they go into the thousands~!!!
