    Default Pokemon Snap Station for around $200. Should I do it?

    I might be able to get myself a Pokemon Snap Station for around $200, do you think it's worthwhile? I'm a huge Pokemon fan so that's not an issue, but I've never done freight shipping and all that and I'm afraid it's going to be too much of a hassle.

    I'd love for some feedback.

    What's a pokemon snap station?

    Oh, NM, I went and checked:
    <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5986934044&category=26 06&ssPageName=WDVW&rd=1">

    Poke snap station </a>

    If its worth it to you, and is in good condition, sure. Although supplying it with new paper/stickers/etc... and keeping it running might be a challenge.[/url]

    As Ben Stiller would say,
    "DO IT"

    Seriously, if I had the money to spend (and the space to put it), I'd buy it.

    I would definately pick one of these up if i had the money.
    There can't be too many of the just floating around out there.

    I don't even remember them being around me for that long at and of the Blockbusters around me.

    Go for it...

    Sad to say I passed one of these up at the flea market..
    The "BLOCKBUSTER store exclusive Pokemon SNAP Station"...
    (yea flea market x_x )
    The same guy who I got the Virtual Boy display unit from had it...but: he wanted $350.00 ......Whew $350.00 at a flea market hits me in the face like a truck..

    I offered $250.00 then $300.00 just to see if he would bite...
    He gave me a story about selling it for a buddy who was a manager at Blockbuster and declined my offer..
    IMO he knew I'd spend the money if I wanted it....
    I find out the next week he sold it at another flea market(Jersey) for $200.00...I guess he got desperate.
    Ahhh at the time it didn't apeal to me enough to go for it...though I kick myself today for it.
    My Uncle however bought several Boxes of the stickers whatever for it since the vendor forgot to give them all to the person who bought the machine.
    He still has them somewhere...in his piles..(longated cardboard boxes)

    No. Not unless you REALLY want it. I doubt it's something that'll hold it's value well...

    YES. Buy it. Not many of them are going to be floating around. Some of them, most likely, have been thrown in a junkyard to rot.

    It's worth more than a PSP.
    Buy it!

    I think it'd be cool just besause I remember them, still have some of the sample stickers, and used to put them on my good ol' GBC. One of them is still remaining, faded and worn, on the side. Ah, nostalgia.

    For a Pokemon fan that's a no-brainer. Jump on it dude. If I could get a *fantasy* "Golgo 13 Snap Station" for $200 I'd probably piss my pants.

    When my wife worked at Blockbuster she could have brought that home. At the time I was thinking in terms of what I play, not collect and told her I didn't want it.

    I believe it went to a kids cancer place or something, so, at least it wasn't junked - but I wish I had've been thinking in a collector's mindset at the time.

    I didn't regret buying mine (the one from my Blockbuster was donated to the CMN where it was likely gutted and thrown away). Here's a pic of my station for your hungy eyes!

    I remember those things. Used to have one at a Blockbuster here and I still actually have a lot of the stickers and I kept all the little smart cards and I have one of each just to collect.

    $76!!! Woah, that's cheap, and it was in Cedar Rapids, IA, which is only like an hour from where I live in Dubuque, IA. Wish I had known about that... woulda pounced on it and probably just driven and picked it up.

    OMG....buy it buy it buy it.

    I'd pay $200 for that in a heartbeat. Honestly, I'm big into any sort of store display, so I'll generally pay through the nose willingly for anything like that.

    this is a kool display. if its in good working order and you believe its a good deal...then jump on it. i can't count how many times i've passed up great deals. i really regret my decisions back then, hopefully i don't let it happen to often. so good luck and let us know how it goes.
