Nice find on the GC.
Nice find on the GC.
A few weeks back I got a free Marty 2 console. Cosmetically flawless, with all the leads etc, just no box. Thing was the cd bit didn't work, hence the reason it was free.
Now I know nothing about electronics whatsoever, but opened it up all the same, just in case. First thing I see is that a wire/plug from the cd lid (presumably telling the system the cd tray is closed and ready for eye killing laser action) has come a little loose. A quick push down, a tiny click is heard, and a free mint fully working Marty 2 is mine:)

I have sold all exept the complete Jaguar-stuff, the complete Neo-Geo stuff and the Nomad. In other words I get the Jaguar, the Neo Geo and the Nomad for FREE.
Best purchase I have ever made.....
As far as actual purchases and trades go:
I purchased a mint/complete Blast Wind for Sega Saturn from a guy for $35 shipped last year.
I traded Psyvarier 2 for the Dreamcast for Twinkle Star Sprites for the Dreamcast (amazingly enough).
And while I don't know if presents would apply or not, I'll throw these two out there as well:
When I was younger and really wanted a Genesis, my grandfather gave me a JP Mega Drive and Alien Soldier for my birthday. To this day I'm amazed by that since we all live in the US, but I imagine he just walked into an import shop and didn't know the difference. Definitely an awesome gift!
A friend of mine in Japan was supposed to buy me a Panzer Dragoon Orta Xbox and I would pay her for it since I couldn't order it directly. But since Christmas was around the corner, she gave it to me as a Christmas present! Also, since she knew how big a fan of Panzer Dragoon I was, she was always hooking me up with whatever Panzer Dragoon goodies she could fine, and since her husband did background art for Sega, she did manage to snag me some good stuff directly from Team Andromeda.
Its a damn shame I no longer have any contact with her...
£500 28" widescreen TV for £80, and no break and enter involved. Score!

sucks reading that when you want a ps2 badly :lol:
I bought a DTL-H10000S on Ebay from a Germany guy.
He didn't know what that "strange" PS2 was.
Maybe he thought it was damaged, because it did not read
PAL discs, and he sure did not know what a "debugging station" is
He offered it multiple times on Ebay:
- first for 95 € (noone buy it)
- then 85 € (noone buy it)
- then 75 € (then I buy it *g*)
It took a long time to ship (2 months) because that guy was to stupid
to check his bank account. So if someone is that stupid, he sure is
more stupid... The idiot used the original box for shipping :(((
He had two pieces, because after I got mine, he put up another one,
someone bought it, but he told me he still has it (of course he didn't
sell it, since he is to stupid to give correct BIC/IBAN bank account data).
So I will be going after the second one too.
Strange thing was... Inside the box I found a manual for a DTL-H30001 !
Anyway, the unit is perfectly working (even laser working!) and sure worth the 75 € hahahah:
I'll put up an image soon.

Today at the Good will I found the printer for the Casio Myseal Loopy for $5.99, with box and instructions. Not too crazy in the value department, just odd finding such a thing at my local goodwill, seeing how the system never came out here.
