I visited the local pawn shop on a whim today, which is rare since their game-related stuff usually sells for eBay prices. I’m glad I did, though, because HOLY SHIT!
They were selling off a model 2 (1631) Sega Genesis with an extra turbo controller, its original paperwork, and some games for $100. I offered $70, they countered with $80, and I was more than happy to accept.
Initially, I only spotted a short stack of loose games, but they included Sonic Classics Collection (the first three games on one cartridge) and Light Crusader. I only wanted to buy those two until the guy who runs the place told me I could have ALL of the Genesis games on the shelf because nobody was buying them. Now I was *very* interested.
Take a look at what I walked away with! It felt like robbery!
To say I’m over the moon is an understatement. And to add a little more sizzle to the steak, the complete copy of Sonic the Hedgehog had a crispy Eternal Champions poster that I quickly picked up a cheap frame for so I could hang it in my office.
I just bought the exact same model and variant of Sega Genesis on eBay and it hasn’t arrived yet, so I’m not sure what to do with the 2nd one. I guess I’ll compare the two and sell one of them off since I’m still on the hunt for a working model 2 Sega CD and a 32X to complete the setup.
Anyway, short post today as I just wanted to share this with you folks since I thought it was a pretty neat find.
