Quote from: P on July 08, 2014, 03:54:27 pmI agree that the Robot is more for show than usefulness, but he does look cool. My favourite useful hardware is the Disk System and the Keyboard. I would love to get the gun someday but it's a bit expensive so I just use a Zapper I got for cheap with a custom adapter for now.It looks like you are missing more than the set of blocks. There's no box, manual or block set hands on the picture.
Quote from: Shumi Nagaremono on July 08, 2014, 05:32:49 pmThe Robot is one of my all time favorite pieces of Famicom hardware, even though it never worked properly. It was also one of my best "pick-ups" of all time. I got the Robot, the Gyro set, and the Block set, all boxed, complete, and in immaculate shape, at a resale shop called Hard-Off in Shingu (Fukuoka prefecture) for 5,000 yen. I made a review video talking about how much I loved the thing. Then, when I was getting ready to move to Tokyo, I sold off a bunch of stuff (mostly doubles), the Robot set among them. That was right around the time where the prices on the things started to go through the roof. The first Robot I found in Akihabara was 20,000 yen. The set in the picture is missing the Gyro box, most of the paperwork, and the styro insert for the Robot (along with the blocks), but I'm just happy to have it back in my collection. I'd *still* be looking for an affordable one if it weren't for a little toy store in Musashi-Shinjyo. The owner tracked it down for me. /CSB

Quote from: L___E___T on July 09, 2014, 03:48:08 amYes those are all good deals - I paid 10,000 Yen for my brand new Robot alone.NIB Gyro was about 10,000 and the Block set NIB about 50,000 Yen.To answer your question - my most coveted Famicom hardware is probably my boxed Taiwanese Famicom I got recently. The most expensive, was my mint Famicom Station I got for 1000,000 Yen years back. I lost control.
