You can get one from Tops/Sophia or YAJ for cheaper than that, I was just posting it because it was local.

LINK: https://www.tops-game.jp/products/detail.php?product_id=4098 (17,600 YEN / $230 AUD + POSTAGE)

You'll actually save money. The CF cards / adapter are easy to source but you make sure they are genuine 64MB Sandisk ones for maximum compatibility. Have had issues with other brands. If you need the modbios, I can send you mine or burn your own. It basically flashes on boot, remove the EPROM, and you're good to go.

I picked up an 80cm CRT three days ago, "hid" it in the kids room under some clothes/random stuff. We did a clean up and my partner was none the wiser, just remarking to me - "I must have totally forgot about this TV of yours".

"Yeah WOW, I must have forgotten about it too..."

True story.

I will try secreting a cab next time and report my results here to empower the rest of you to keep scooping up retro

My wife doesn't mind what I buy, what she does mind is mess. And that's a problem as I have much stuff yet little space to store it, and I'm always working on something which means my tools are all over the place. My kitchen table is better stocked than Jaycar!

I think we need a new thread about marital acceptance and tips and tricks of this particularly expensive hobby ;)

PVM-14L1 successfully snuck into the house, hidden in the garage under boxes.

Stay tuned for next weeks episode of "Tube Trekkers".

If she catches you, just tell her you were going to surprise her with a multi screen surveillance system for the house on the cheap.

Hey

So has anyone here bought shockboxes ever/recently? The shipping costs are crazy high (basically higher than the product).

Cheers

It not worth it honestly. I received some with games I bought over time and I’m going to pick some up from @suverman when I next go to Sydney. But shippings a rort.

The quality of them aren’t crash hit either. They do crack at the seams more often than not. And if you drop them, they will just shatter. Hopefully someone makes a better solution.

But they look purdy. Surprised China hasn't started making them.

China has nice Neo Geo shockboxes, but I believe they are repurposed from the Neo Geo Gold X sets they pulled apart. You see them listed with the more premium looking 161-in-1 carts nowadays on AliExpress. Wouldn’t hurt hitting them up, let me know if you get anywhere with it.
