I can't believe someone held on to it for so long.  Nice find.

I bought this nice O² store display...
I never seen it before
Damn, looks sweet!!!!
Got this off ebay???? Must have weight a ton to ship... Looks absolutely amazing when filled up.

I myself bought 2 very rare sega saturn games (only 3 more to go for a full set) and a sega st-v arcade board (still need a cheap supergun to connect it to a tv).

aren't you selling a PAL full set? which ones did you get / are you missing? the last ones for my PAL fullset were Mortal Kombat Trilogy and Dragonball Z ...

Cool! Never knew you collected saturn as well. I'm currently missing MortalKombatTrilogy , Swagman and Dragonforce for me (although i have a good lead on MKT and swagman). Dreamcast still needs 10 or so games (only 1 or 2 really rare ones) which i can get from ebay anytime.
I already put some of the completesets up there to help me estimate their value, and i'm only consider selling some of them when i'm completely out of money (which happens frequently these days when dedicating yourself to indie game development). I"m still sorting out some of the other collections as well (got a whole bunch of spare megacd and 32x stuff) so i'll be adding some more stuff over the next weeks.
For some reason MegaCD, like the 32x, is harder to complete as some games just never seem to hit ebay/internet.

I got complete sets for both Saturn and Dreamcast PAL (Dreamcast also all the US games that had not been released as PAL, as well as quite a few Japanese ones ...)

wow ... just looked up Swagman and Dragonforce prices on ebay ... glad I finished my collection quite some years back ;-) Its interesting to see, that the expensive games are quite easy to get (if you are willing to pay the price) - e.g., Panzer Dragoon Saga, Dragonforce, Swagman (there are a few of those on ebay now), but some games almost never turn up (like Mortal Kombat Trilogy - for me this was the last game I needed and I waited some years before one finally appeared on ebay ... and then I bought it for 7€ or something ...)

Don't know if you got "Taxi 2" for Dreamcast already - if you do I hope you played it :-) it was actually one of my favorite Dreamcast games ...

Yes, rare and popular games are ones that are mistaken quite often, especially in the grey area like e.g. P.D.Saga (rumored to have 8000 copies released in europe). There are tons and tons of PS2 games with a production runs of less than 10.000 or sometimes 5000 (protip: all 505-games stuff) that you can find in bargain bins for 5 euros or less.
I noticed there is a lot of 'rare, but not completely rare' stuff that you just don't see a lot, for example i had to wait a long time to find a simpsons bart vs world or asterix great rescue for the mastersystem. Haven't gotten taxi2 yet (usually go for 50-ish on ebay) but thanks for the tip, didn't know about the quality of that game.

I didn't find any Odyssey 2 things at the flea market this weekend, or any rare NES games my little brother has me look for.

I know better than to share what I did get though :P

It seems over the last few years O2 consoles have dried up in my area.  Good thing I have 7 :)
