This lowball will be one of three (possibly definitely four!?) being held to replace our TV.
The proceeds from the lowballs will be combined with whatever I am able to save until my birthday, January the 5th and then I will be buying whatever TV we are able to afford at that time from the selections I have made. I made the following chart to track progress!
Posted Image

The reason we need a new TV though, is that our has slowly developed lines over the past months. It used to have a couple that would stay on for the first few minutes the TV was on, but then more began to form and some began to stay even after hours of viewing.
Currently, there are 9 lines annoying the hell out of us. It wouldn't be so bad if they didn't change color all the time based on the on screen image.
Here are some example pics I took a few weeks back when we had only 7 active lines.

Do you want to watch movies or game on this TV? It gains another line or two every few weeks, so I figure it should be pretty much junk in a few months.

Come on! Help out! You know you wanna! :applause:

Typical Lowball Rules:
Spoiler


As always, once I have the shipping up, I will be giving the option of sending money in U.S. Dollars or in Japanese Yen. Yen works best for me as it will keep me from having to pay a huge conversion fee in a few months when I have to move the money over to my Japanese Paypal account to get the new TV, so if you can send there, it's very appreciated! Selecting "Payment Owed" works best and would be great as the fee is lower. Thanks!

I will be working to get grand totals up ASAP.


Payment in Yen to: (PAYPAL) dv8mad(at)softbank.ne.jp

The auctions will be smaller than my typical ones since I am working so much and also to spread things out over the three or four.
It will be the typical assortment from me, pretty full of random Japanese items with some games, movies, etc thrown in.
No worries about the second post. I don't need any extra placeholders on the front page since I will have weeks between each lowball. Thanks though!

It's a Mitsubishi. And, it seems like you are in luck on metal cards. Metal dog tags too! ;)

I will start getting up the basics of the list today. I imagine each auction will be less than 100 items.

Still have more to add to the OP, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.

hopefully we can give you enough for the 70" TV and that does suck about the random color changing lines.

Yes, it offers both Japanese and English audio according to the package.

Hard to say. It's not that heavy, I mean, it is in a bag and comes in a box, but the box itself is kind of thin. I'd say it'll be less than 1000yen easily if it was shipped on it's own. Probably even cheaper when combined with other items since the rates go up slower once you get the base shipping out of the way.

A Mitsubishi TV is messing up like that. Now, I know what company to stay away from. Wish you the best of luck, hope these lowballs help you get the top tv on your list.

Also,"Pepsi Salty Watermelon" :shock: Pepsi is so much more creative over there. Pepsi always seems to play follow the leader with Coke here in the states.
