    I know the GBA Micro wasn't really popular despite the screen quality, but the cheapest I've seen them on Amazon is about $45 a pop, and I'm fairly sure those are used. My Wal-Mart has them discounted to... a fair deal lower than that, for the 10-20 they have left. I'm wondering, would anyone be interested if I bought a few and resold them at around $40 or 45 + shipping? I didn't want to post this in the selling forum; I didn't really know where to put this other than here.

    Also, there's nothing illegal about that, is there? I mean, I know I'd get some strange looks buying more than one or two, but...

    Yeah I think the Micro looks cool because of its size.

    Isn't it like the smallest handheld ever or something?

    I'd buy one--I cant afford one right now, but I'd buy one at that price, sure [​IMG].

    I know of quite a few people who'd also buy them and at that price.

    You should go and buy all of the ones they have left. I'd probably buy one off of you for 40 dollars, and if you couldn't sell all of them here, you could sell the rest on ebay/amazon.

    Well, I just ordered mine from PlayAsia before two weeks..If I've seen this topic earlier, I would contact you and buy it for sure..(But this way, I bought Famicom "special" edition made in Japan-not China, so I'm happy about it)..
    It's really a fair price, payed mine $69.99..

    I never seen Micro in real life, and never hold it in my hands, I'm totally hyped about getting it, as it's supposed to come today or tomorrow (one of these days), I believe it will change my GBA gaming experience drastically, and make me love GBA even stronger..

    Hell yeah, i bouht my Famicom GBA Micro Edition when it came out in Japan.

    There hard to find these days in a non online shop, so i would say $49/$50 is cheap if i see that some stores that still have it sell it for around €60

    If I change currency, Micro in the shop here (and they have only green one, and I don't like it) costs $168!!
    Unbelievable expensive..So even a $60 price is great for me, but shipping always adds at least $10-$20 in to even more..And it's still half the price I would pay over here..

    I'd never held a Micro in real life either, and I bought my Famicom micro a couple of weeks ago. You'll love it. It's so pretty [​IMG]

    it all depends on where you reside. gameboy micros haven't been available here in the states for well over a year now. and that was after they closed them out at 35.00-60.00usd each (depending on the store).

    Well, it still hasn't come here, but I'm expecting it..I believe I'll love it the moment I see it, but I can't wait anymore!! It's been little over two and half week since I ordered it..

    And Famicom version is still sold over $100 at e-bay..
