    Default WTB: Your worst working SNES console

    I am looking to buy a SNES console, preferably the second generation (non-removable sound module, two large chips where the sound module would go). I've got a dead unit currently that is in good cosmetic condition, and I intend to swap the internals to create one complete working unit. To this end, I am looking to buy the worst-looking SNES you have.

    Do you have an unused SNES that is:
    • badly yellowed
    • obviously from a heavy smoker's home
    • cracked and chipped
    • broken dust cover
    • drawn all over
    • seemingly unsellable due to just being plain ugly for any number of reasons


    If you have a SNES that meets these qualifications but still works, and you'd like to get rid of it, then I'd like to make a deal with you. I don't need any cables or controllers or games, though if you have some duplicate games that you might be willing to let go for cheap then I'd be happy to discuss it with you.

    I can arrange payment via Paypal or otherwise as you prefer, I am very flexible. Same with shipping; I won't make a stink if it is a day late.

    In case it wasn't obvious by the subject line/content in this post, I am trying to save a few dollars by getting a system others might not want. I'm not looking for charity, I intend to pay for the privilege of getting a console; still I hope to reach a reasonable price with anyone willing to work with me--a price that reflects both the working condition of the system and the poor physical condition of the exterior.

    Thanks for reading!

    I'm not really too interested in cash, but I have an extra SNES kicking around that I'd be willing to do a straight trade for. I'm interested in any of the following consoles.

    Sega Master System
    Sega CD
    Sega 32X
    Atari Jaguar
    Panasonic 3DO (the model that looks like a VCR, not the top loader)
    NES toploader
    Atari 7800
    Atari 5200
    GBA attachment for gamecube with the disk
    intellevision
    Clecovision
    Atari XEGS
    Turbographix 16

    Maybe not quite what you're looking for but I'd do a straight trade for any one of those consoles/attachments. If not that's ok too, just thought I'd put it out there just in case.

    Thanks for the response Gregger. I do have a top-loader NES (AV modded) but I'm not really interested in getting rid of it; that system holds the most nostalgia for me. I also have an Atari 5200 in the box (albeit a somewhat mistreated box) but I don't have the power adapter or any controllers (I won it at a local Goodwill auction and didn't realize it was missing those bits...), therefore I would be wary about trading it since I can't test it in any way to guarantee functionality.

    As long as we are talking items I would be willing to trade, might as well list these items that might be of interest to some here (note: these are not video-game related, please excuse me if listing them breaks some rule of the forums, I will remove them if this is the case)

    RCA LaserDisc player (no, it won't play any of the famous LaserDisc-based arcade titles, but if you are interested in old video formats then this is a great place to start). Works great, will throw in some movies as well. If anyone is interested, I can get the actual model number as well.

    The complete set of Checker Book Publishing Group's reprints of Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon comic strips from the mid 1930s to the 1940s (seven books in all)
    Links to Amazon provided for reference:
    Volume 1:http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Raymonds-...r+flash+gordon
    Volume 2:http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Raymonds-...r+flash+gordon
    Volume 3:http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Raymonds-...r+flash+gordon
    Volume 4:http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Raymonds-...r+flash+gordon
    Volume 5:http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Raymonds-...r+flash+gordon
    Volume 6:http://www.amazon.com/Flash-Gordon-V...r+flash+gordon
    Volume 7:http://www.amazon.com/Flash-Gordon-V...r+flash+gordon
    All in excellent condition, and will be shipped carefully to ensure safe delivery.

    To be clear, I'm more interested in doing a cash sale of one form or another. I only brought these items into the discussion in response to Greggor and on the off chance that I might meet someone out there with tastes as unique as mine who might be interested in these items in trade.

    By the way, love your taste in equipment. Only things missing are an Atari 800 and Commodore 64
