    Default Pokemon Snap Station

    Back in the day, I worked at Blockbuster Video. I enjoyed such fun tasks as unplugging the Pokemon Snap Station so the dumb kids couldn't play it. I survivored Snap. Then they sent us stickers from Stadium for the machine. Then they took it in the backroom. I heard everyone saying that they were supposed to be sent back to Nintendo. All the stores in our area (Cincinnati, Ohio) raped the machine for the TV and the N64, the rest made its way to the trash. I was told by the manager one afternoon that I could have the damned thing if I get someone to get it the hell outta here and now. I called my dad and he brought his truck and snagged it for me. Now it resides next to a gun cabinet, just in case I get the urge to take pictures of pokemon and shoot someone.

    I was curious if anyone on the forums actually has a complete one, besides me?

    Whew pictures are fun!

    I know someone here quite recently bought one of these in Cleaveland for around $75. Didn't have all those goodies you have! Nice.

    Personally I have been looking for one of these but when think about it all you really need is a HQ printer with special sheets and a cart to interact with the N6 4 all together.

    Yep, that would be me. I'm trying to track down the Card or find a way to bypass it to do some printing myself. Not too many stickers left in it either. Its a pretty cool setup with the 64 connected to a board that allows 2 carts to be attached at once. I love how it can be playing one game and then a customer can come in and put their game in the front and it will start right up and bypass the original game. Mike : )

    I think AtomicThumbs was either trying to get one or has one.

    I always wondered what happened to those....you should consider yourself very fortunate to have one.

    So there's an N64 inside that and it's attached to a printer? Internal pics please. And of this dual cart board too, if possible.

    Ask and you shall receive. If you want the full size images, just ask and I'll upload and link an url. I also forgot to rotate the first couple of pictures. You get the idea though....

    Quality, nice one.

    How is the printer connecting to the N64; via the N64's bottom expansion socket, or through that dual cart pcb?

    And is that a standard retail copy of the Pokemon Stadium game (other than being marked 'NFRS')? I assume the dual cart PCB does the job of taking your save data and using it with the already loaded game.

    Edit: Never actually seen one of these before..... So you purchased those funky Blockbuster marked cards to use as payment on the machine then. I'm interested in how the printer and card reader are interfacing with an N64.

    The NFRS carts for Snap and Stadium aren't standard retail copies. In Snap you can only play through the first area. In the Stadium NFRS you can only demo a battle and go to the picture taking area of the game.

    Edit: Never actually seen one of these before..... So you purchased those funky Blockbuster marked cards to use as payment on the machine then. I'm interested in how the printer and card reader are interfacing with an N64.
    Ya, when you bought Snap orginally, I believe there was information about it in there, as well as sample stickers. I think it gave you a coupon to get a free snap station card. I'm pretty sure that's how it went. Man, my memory is fading.

    I've never seen this before (There wasn't a Blockbuster where I live until 2004), but it does look cool.

    Say,4-5 years ago
    Dude at the Flea Market who got me my Virtual Boy Display unit had one of these..
    He wanted $300.00 for it...It had all these boxes of stickers etc with it.
    He said he got it via a friend at Blockbuster..(I always wonder where he gets all the piles of DVDs)

    He had it set-up,turned to to test it out and he let me check it all out inside...I wanted it but I didn't have any room for it...nor a way to get it home at the time.
    The seller knew I liked stuff like this so I think he upped the price(like usual) when he saw me..

    The day I was at the market he didn't sell it,I saw it packed back up on his truck..
    He told me he sold it for $250.00 the next week at the Englishtown flea market..So if someone in south Jersey has one or around that area then it may have been the one I seen..
    He didn't give up the boxes of stickers with the akle of the unit and my uncle wound up buying all that stuff from him cheap.

    I got word later from another flea market vendor friend of his and mine that he let the whole Pokemon Snap Station go for $100.00(not $250.00 like he said)

    Can you get better pics of the printer itself? Looks like all manner of other stuff is in the way.

    I've had the Charmander card for that in my wallet for probably 10 years, I don't think I ever even got any stickers from it either (just wanted the card)
