    Yesterday I grabbed for $40:

    - 1 PS/2 (fat version), with av cables and power cable.
    - 1 NES with the tuner cable thing and 2 original controllers.
    - 1 SNES with the tuner cable thing.

    I just need to grab powerpacks for the snes/ nes and snes controllers.

    So if anyone has them shoot me a pm :D

    Pioneer Laser Active (CLD-A100).

    I've had it for years, well my dad has. But he's retired it not knowing what it actually is. A Laser Disc Console! (with backwards compatibility for Sega CD and mega drive). But i've yet to get that unit.

    ^ Far out, that's some fairly massive retro points right there.

    I still get hankerings for a Laserdisc player. It was one thing from my childhood I never really saw, always fascinated me. Very cool score on that Laser Active.

    Does it have any of the PAC's?

    Only a karaoke unit atm (PAC-K1). I've used it as a teenager to play music, and it was a pretty good, robust player (even shitty scratched discs that failed on other units ran fine on it). So fingers crossed its got a few years left in it.

    Surprisingly, the units you want, N1 and S1 are easily acquirable on ebay, and not at that great of a premium. Games on the other hand...

    It is? (neat)?

    It's just a rebranded ensoniq card to me. :D

    Nah, no external power required, it's just a cheap blaster. :) I'm only keeping it for now as it's supposed to have good dos support for a pci card.

    I picked up 18 Japanese Hoth Star Wars Customizable Card Game (SWCCG) rares on eBay last friday. Knocked 18 cards off the 22 rares i needed for the set. Was sooooooo stocked. Would have put me to under 150 cards to have all ~4600 released to retail.

    Got a message this morning, 14 of them were put through a shredder by his 3YO.

    So, I managed to beat the entire world to these cards and was thwarted by a 3YO. Considering i got clubbed between the eyes by my 2YO on Saturday, i'm on a losing streak.

    Me want... that's so awesome where did you pick that up from? and if you dont mind me asking how much? Doesn't come with any of the games that supports it does it?

    Commiserations, it's sad and unfortunate but ive had it happen too with buying games/consoles off ebay with the child spilling something or otherwise destroying some poor defenseless retro goodies.

    Got myself a Slot 1 440BX motherboard off ebay recently. Was put up as an Asus mobo, dude sent a Lucky Star and is no longer registered on ebay all of a sudden. Joke's kind of on him though, this thing works perfectly with a TNT2 M64, 2x Voodoo 2s in SLI and an SBLive 5.1.

    $50 is a steal. I think I saw one go on eBay-AU a few months back for $300+! :shock:

    You should watch the angry video game nerd video review where he plays the handful of games that the robot supports and actually customs wires up a controller. One of his better reviews.

    Yeah that was classic! :thumbup:

    Man can't wait to go back home early next year and see if mine is still in one piece... there should be a NES, ROB, a couple controllers and maybe 30-40 games... I hope my olds didn't throw it out when I moved O/S! :tongue: :pirate:

    Some pics of my Adam

    The box is in decent nick

    Some poor sucker paid $1099 for this!

    The system itself. Time to clean it up a bit.

    On another note I was playing with my 1541Ultimate one of my C64s and it died, so I went to grab a replacement from my stash. I knew the box of one I grabbed was in good nick, but I pulled the unit out and it is brand new. I'm not sure if I should keep it packed back away, it's in such beautiful condition....
