    Yeah I knew that site, but that's just a picture gallery and you can't find many info about every limited edition.

    Agreed, but that Swatch Dreamcast is a revelation to me. Where did that one come from?

    It seems like the swatch edition was the prize for a contest among the people registered to the swatch club. There must be just one then.

    It would be nice to add some more pictures for every LE, if anyone has some extra material please let us know!

    Never heard of an official gold Dreamcast, do you have a picture of that?

    But at least among the numbered consoles, the DC RX-78 is the most limited one. Not even the FFCC Gamecube comes close.

    The Swatch Dreamcast IS NOT real. It would have been a production model if the deal between Swatch and Sega went through on their strange gimmick they had made but since it never neither did the Swatch Dreamcast.

    forget the euro Sonic Model .

    its a very pathatic custom job , even if it was ordered by Sega Europe.

    its badly brushed and the Sonic pics you find on the top are the same stickers they gave away in japan , they simply brushed them over with clear paint.

    i had two in my hands and they are pure crap, they might look nice from the distance , but when you see them with your own eyes you will be shocked.
