Found a Astrocade today

Recommended Posts

Indeed. It reminds me of my Astrocade, right down to the white shell. Those are the rarest ones, you know!

Nice deal! I here the white ones are very rare :cool:

IIRC Digital Press ranks the white system an R6, I might be wrong but yes they are less common than the others. I still can't believe that was found at a church sale and for only $2!!! Nice score man!!

I have seen a bunch of Astrocade's in the wild, but NEVER a white. Nice find, nice price.

Actually my wife did at a church sale for 2 bucks. I will test it when I get home from work.

 

 

That is an AMAZING find! Not only did you get the much rarer white console but the original Basic Interface Unit. All for $2. I think I'd have a coronary if I ever stumbled upon a find like that.

Where have you found a bunch of these? Are other rare video game items as free available on your planet too? :D

it looks "like new". The first thing that stood out for me was that the RF switch looks MINTY! No rust. The carts look good too. Maybe it wasn't used that much.

 

I'm jealous.

Thats funny, I was actually going to point this out when I saw it but I thought to myself "Save it for Pingvin" and you actually did point it out :D

:grin: :thumbsup:

 

If it was once, I'd let it go. But three times in one thread? Come on...that has to be a record.

Is the Astrocade really that rare? I thought it was a little uncommon but not borderline rare. :ponder:

They're fairly uncommon, and the units are prone to failure (due to overheating).

Would installing a fan help?

Perhaps. I don't own one, so I've never investigated the problem. I have heard that some people elevate the unit and point a fan at it during use.
