    Nice statue. If a Dhalsim statue or action figure existed, that would be cool to have in my retro-gaming-released-physical-items collection (which currently consists of the Red Alert 2 Premier Edition that I mentioned on this thread before plus the awesome LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog minifigure from the LEGO Dimensions game which may or may not count as "retro")

    My rarest is probably my FM Towns Marty TC Station I would say. Pretty much the same as a normal Marty but has the rear connection port hard wired to a printer cable. Sadly I only own the console and not all of the awesome stuff that came in the TC Station set originally. I also own a PC-KD863G but I think the TC Station is probably rarer as maybe only a handful still survive today.

    My rarest item would be my SNES Complete in box. Not too rare, but not something you see every day.

    I would have to say my rarest item that I own is my Waka up Scan Converter.

    Awhile back I was doing my normal searches on Yahoo Japan and I just so happened to stumble on one of these. Thankfully I ended up winning the auction for a reasonable price. When it arrived I immediately tested it out and I was rather astonished by how well it upscaled/cleaned up the image. The colors appeared to be vibrant and rich looking. However do keep in mind that you will notice more of a difference. If used with a well received CRT Computer Monitor.

    So do yourself a favor. If you ever come across one of these do not hesitate and pick it up. As they are extremely hard to find. Just be prepared to spend a good amount of cash because they are not cheap.

    I think it's relatively common. Slightly more expensive but not very rare.

    Not very. It's just a standard limited edition. Sure they will go up in value over time but I wouldn't call them rare. Really rare would be the systems given out at pokemon competition since those are just a small handful of them made.

    Welcome to the PSP Kit club. I've got one on my portable systems shelf. =)

    Not rare but just hard to find.

    Dreamcast promotion disk 2. One of the first demo disks to come out.

    What is rare? Something that you cannot find very often or something you can get but is expensive?

    The first thing. Lots of game stuff is expensive but not actually rare, like Earthbound.

    In that case the rarest thing I own is an old DOS RPG from BlueByte called Albion. It's very hard to find English version fully boxed with manual. German versions are more common but are... well... in German.

    Nice, I got one of these just the other day! I'd never heard of it before seeing it in an auction. I opened it up, and the module thing just unplugs from the expansion port and it becomes a regular Marty. If you clip the cover off of the back of a regular Marty you can even plug the module into it and get the same functionality.

    That’s awesome! Does it play games?

    Also it looks familiar, did they show it off in a magazine or something?
