Recent Pickups

I've been hasty with the "Buy it Now" button lately, thought I'd post some of it.

This is an NTT Data controller for the Super Famicom (SNES). It was part of a package that included a modem and a special cartridge that accessed an NTT DoCoMo off-track betting system. I would like to find the entire setup new in the box, but this will do in the meantime.

I'd never had one of these, so I bid on a PSOne and got it for like $12 shipped. The auction had no picture, so I didn't really know what I was in for. Not bad for twelve bucks, but the owner just shipped it like this without any other box, so it was covered in labels and stamped "Parcel Post". I'd still like a mintier one, but I can't complain for the price.

I also lucked into a pretty good haul of Japanese Saturn games. I primarily wanted this lot because of Last Bronx, but it came with a lot of other good stuff also. I sold my NTSC-J Saturn ages ago, so now I have an excuse to get another one.

Royal Enfield

I want one.

They're cheap, relatively speaking. Not sure if I'd rather have a cafe or sidecar rig.

Does anyone know what event this was?

But predictably, I like it anyway.

It's a V12 atomic death wedge made by a tractor company, why not cover it in idiotic flashing lights and enjoy it? I'm all about this.
