Does it include an oem ac adapter @ Gypsy? If not retrogamecave periodically makes a nice replacement unit if that helps you save a few bucks at auction. It also happens to be cross compatible with the CDX.
Its not a laser active w/ genesis module? Pretty sure those were ungodly expensive when launched. EDIT: Hmm you saying it was made here has me questioning this now. That makes me think old school Atari, but I don't think the 5200 or 7800 can really be considered expensive from the reading I have done.
@Gypsy I was referring to the latest bluray ova release of the remade Eva series, not the way old tv series. "You can not advance" maybe? I did watch it fansubbed aways back and can see why they dragged on it a bit, nowhere near as good as 1:11 or 2:22 ova's.
