I saw this earlier and was immediately jealous. It's nice that she called in some family members and actually appreciated what was found instead of just tossing everything in the trash.

It was discovered a month ago on arcade otaku. The guy was going to ship them to the USA, but a collector in the Netherlands bought them all. Shame to, I still want another Astro.
