    Agreed, but that Swatch Dreamcast is a revelation to me. Where did that one come from?

    It seems like the swatch edition was the prize for a contest among the people registered to the swatch club. There must be just one then.

    It would be nice to add some more pictures for every LE, if anyone has some extra material please let us know!

    Is not the rarest. The gold Dreamcast is the rarest. 1 made.

    Is the J Official Ticket Station Lawson model a limited edition as well?

    I think this site has a list of different ones.

    Never heard of an official gold Dreamcast, do you have a picture of that?

    But at least among the numbered consoles, the DC RX-78 is the most limited one. Not even the FFCC Gamecube comes close.

    Thank god the RX-78 is so butt-ugly. I'd like the clear Seaman one someday.

    The Swatch Dreamcast IS NOT real. It would have been a production model if the deal between Swatch and Sega went through on their strange gimmick they had made but since it never neither did the Swatch Dreamcast.

    I wouldnt call the Rx78 ugly, Its not the nicest i think the Maziora gets my vote for the nicest model but the Rx78 I like. <a href="http://s8.photobucket.com/albums/a25/neozeed/?action=view&current=Picture012.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a25/neozeed/Picture012.jpg" border="0" alt="CUSTOM RX-78"></a> http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a25/

    The Maziora model is also the nicest looking one for me.

    forget the euro Sonic Model .

    its a very pathatic custom job , even if it was ordered by Sega Europe.

    its badly brushed and the Sonic pics you find on the top are the same stickers they gave away in japan , they simply brushed them over with clear paint.

    i had two in my hands and they are pure crap, they might look nice from the distance , but when you see them with your own eyes you will be shocked.
