    If I had that much money, and was settled and not afraid of anything, I'd buy it.

    Much, much cooler than that really expensive NES game a few weeks back, this is way cool.

    This just reminded me, if you see a display you like at a game store and ask for it, they usually give it to you once the promotion is done with (at least at the four Gamestops near me in New York). I've gotten a crapload of them, just cardboard mostly (they probably wouldn't give this one away [​IMG] ) but they may be worth something sometime! Just shows it never hurts to ask!

    Awesome find. The only thing I have a question about, is how does the person that bought it know it's the actual display unit? For all that person knew, the seller could've constructed the casing, printed off a high-quality scan of the back panel with the images/text, bought an NES, controllers, Zapper, the 2 games, and a R.O.B. unit, and put it all together to look identical to the real thing. Nah, it's most likely the real thing.

    EDIT: Heh...Gamester81's newest video is about a different display model. Kind of funny that I saw both of these on the same day.
