    Hi there!

    I really would like to buy a standard NTSC frontloader NES, if anybody got a spare one :)
    It will need to be shipped to Europe.

    A whole console is actually not even needed, just a working board with the controller inputs :)

    I may have one... Let me look and i'll get back to you.

    EDIT:
    Ok, I do have one, but the CPU has been repaired (missing legs replaced). overall the board works, but I doubt it'd be possible to remove the cpu from the board without damaging the repaired legs (if that was your intention).

    Hey AtomizerZero!
    Thank you for checking!
    The idea was to install the HDMI mod, which demands removal of both ppu and cpu.
    But thanks a bunch anyway :)

    It might be usable after all!
    Could you post/send some pictures of the board, specially the repairs? :)

    Thank you!

    I'd check eBay in USA. Sellers can have shipping discounts that it will be cheaper to get it to your country than the average Joe. Last thing I shipped to UK was a Game Boy game and it costs the guy like $15 so I can't imagine what a console would cost to Europe.

    I have checked eBay alot lately, and the prices are mostly fine, but the shipping always kills it.
    Import charges and shipping often cost more than the actual item..

    You could buy a cheap famicom,then add the ppu,cpu and crystal to a pal nes.

    Will it work with the games, just like a American Frontloader?

    That is probably a better bet for you, Madsmaten. It will work fine. I've done it myself.
