    Does anyone know where to get a GB Micro nowadays, or is this an unattainable relic from the past?

    You could probably get one from places like eBay or Amazon.

    Amazon has one listed for $250, and that's it.

    you can check playasia, they still have a few micros from japan left, and they should be under 100 US.

    I'm sure you already tried this, but you could go around to various game shops and see if they have any used GBM's.

    Yeah, Micros shouldn't really be that tough to find yet... unless you're looking for the 20th Anniversary Famicom edition, anyway (and even that isn't too bad, on eBay).

    When I came in here, initially I thought you were talking about a Game Boy Pocket, lol. Not sure why, but I sometimes mix the Micro and Pocket up in my head.

    Oh, I have a DS Lite. I just want a Micro because it's so tiny.

    I don't know Tokyo well enough to tell you retail locations, of course... but many of the eBay sellers I've seen offering Micros over the last few months have been based in Japan. So it shouldn't be that difficult, even if you went with eBay.
