I have the original boxed Odyssey 2 I got as a kid though it had some of its guts transplanted with another system to repair it along the way. I am the original owner of my boxed SNES and my early PS2 as well. All of the rest of my pre-2000 systems were used.

In my hunt to find handheld MATTEL SPACE ALERT it turns out I don't have an EMERSON ARCADIA, but a more rare APF MP1000!

Updated my other post.

Anyone have an idea what one of these puppies are worth?
Its not listed on Video Game Price Charts, gotta be rare. :mrgreen:

I will tear this house apart to find my first handheld. :evil:

Its rare but I have only seen a base unit sell as high as $70 at the most but they usually have a game or two included. Now if you have the bottom keyboard tape deck piece it sells closer to $175 - $250 unboxed.

I had an original ps1 for a while that I bought from a friend but don't have it anymore. My dad has one that I'll probably inherit since it probably hasn't been hooked up in 5 years.
