    Brand new sealed machines :eek: - yes they are indeed worth something. To give you an example I payed £100 for a brand new sealed Super Famicom as they are extremely rare. I'm not interested in Pal Gaming but I would say you could expext around £70 per machine. £30 per Superscope (even though it was crap). £10 - £25 per game, depending on game. What accessories does he have. I would certainly be interested in some brand new Jopads becuase the Famicom ones are too short :(.

    My advice would be to get that stuff on eBay now.

    Thanks for the replies

    He's the guy that launched the SNES in the UK - he ran the big Nintendo truck that went round the country ? hence quite a few things left over

    I will ask about a joy pad for you groundy

    Tell him to offer them on these forums first. :D


    I'd be up for one - £40?

    £50 with a Superscope? ;)

    I think he was trying to find out if he kept the things for another 5-10 years would they suddenly go up in value - tricky one to answer though
