Hello everyone and thank you for reading this,

I was going to post this on the "post what you buy/sell" topic but this is a one-of-a-kind deal, not many people can copy this experience..
so much stuff to share! Enjoy this little story.

There was an LIVE Auction called Millon in December,
http://www.millon-associes.com/html/ind ... ng=fr&np=1

and TONS of rare and amazing items are for sell there,
Apearently, THIS Auction and ANOTHER one before that in JUNE

where ALL from the SAME GUY... Exactly.., 1 collector owned everything, His name goes by Kaori30

after chasing him down there was a YouTube video about his collection here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ePLpGDpLBN4

After chasing him down with my partner Sander (amazing collector, can be seen HERE

we manage to get direct contact with him, and when time passes we could go to PARIS and buy the remaining things which where NOT sold at Millon auction.
oh yeah... let the adventure begin!

So we discussed back and forth and we agreed on this:
on Wednesday the 25th, we went with my car a 450km away journey to Paris, see his collecting in storage, make some deals. and go back home..

What we saw was Incredible..

This can`t be explained with words, so here are pictures:
EVERYTHING you see where Consoles... and more consoles. in those moving-boxes, more consoles..
[+] Spoiler
2 Pallets with consoles..


Then 2 FLOORS with consoles...



Few more pallets with consoles..


Then 2 freaking CONTAINERS filled with consoles..



2 Zelda editions (will be for sell in the next June Auction)
PS: number of the zelda MM is 206 ;)

more consoles and extremely rare things!

did I also mentioned a guy had 20 THOUSAND Sealed dreamcast games?
[+] Spoiler
From the ground to the sealing..

So we agreed on deals and prices. we got in total of around 20+- consoles and most of them where ultra rare.

Here is what I bought:
Nintendo 64 ANA Complete + Hyundai Comboy 64 Complete


Nintendo Gamecube HEINEKEN Edition, 50 exists (and 50 purple ones)


Nintendo 64 F-1 Grand Prix PAK (French release only)


Nintendo 64 Twin Controller Pak (Australian Exclusive) Might not be THAT rare but this saved me alot of shipping =)


The 2 N64 Pokemon Edition from Japan, MINT (so I can sell my loose ones and get my money back)


Gameboy Pocket ICE BLUE from Target CIB


a KONAMI Computer, (not yet known what it is, but I've never seen it before!)


and the most rare of them all:
Nintendo DS Advance Wars Dual Strike Camouflage Edition, 50 (or 30) where given out to certain press members who came to the Advance Wars Dual Strike press release



so this is what I have, and in 18th of June there is going to be an Auction in Paris for more stuff! so stay tuned!

Thanks for the compliments!

You know I was not planning to buy the ANA CIB because I had one already (but loose)

but here is the thing,

I wanted a normal N64 console for a price to match my complete SET of Asian boxes
(Taiwan/Korean/Honkong and Japan)

with a normal N64 box i`m not going to look around with minor details about dmg/book/bags so, the box looked good. so I took it.
APEARENTLY this WAS the ANA console.. (so I got a CIB ANA console for less then 100 usd)

best deal of the world..

So.. I told my partner Sander and he told me what I thought.

I should tell mr Kaori I got an ANA instead of a normal N64 console. and that is what I did.

I told him I got the ANA instead of a normal one, and if we could figure things out.
I offered an X amount so I could keep the ANA and he accepted.

PS I do own a full asian set now:

Great story, great adventure, great pickups!

I am so impressed that you informed the seller about the ANA...that is really cool and speaks volumes about your integrity. Big thumbs up for that.

The komani computer looks to be a famicom...but obviously that is not the full story. Love to know it because komani was, IMHO, the first awesome third party publisher for Big N systems.

That guy has a lot of stuff, holy cow! You know your collection is massive when you need your own warehouse and shipping containers for all your stuff :lol:

Glad you managed to make some deals you're happy with ^_^

EDIT: Is that Advanced Wars box an actual N64 system? Does it have any type of seal or have you been able to take it out and look at it? I can't seem to find any pics on google

Sorry the N64 system of Advanced Wars is actually a Nintendo DS system(!)


There is some info about it on Wiki:
