so i was looking on craigslist the other day and found a guy selling a sansui brand new in box for $30.00.  I contacted him and it turned out he had a store in down town L.A.  I live near there so my friend and I went down to the shop to check out this sansui controller.  The shop was a huge warehouse filled with tons of crap knock-off merchandise.  I asked about the controller and sure enopugh he pulls out a bnib sansui!  I ask if he has any other nintendo products.  He thinks for a second and then tells me to follow him to the back of the warehouse. He showed me two displays.  One is an entire nes deluxe set w/ rob the robot, on a pedistal, under a plastic case, and it lights up from the bottom.  this was also accompanied with a mint condition nes Deluxe box, with foam and booklets.  The second display was a big rob the robot head that sits on a back lit box with several different game shots on it.

I'm trying to post pictures but am having difficulties.  i ended up buying both displays.  I'll post the pics when i figure this out.

Any displays with ROB are very early and could be very valuable. Yes I have cash ready

wow! nice to hear these could be rare. i also got a framed nintendo seal of quality, bnib sansui controller and a bnib quick shot thrown in with the purchase of the displays. i had only seen the quickshot in pictures and was very surprised at how large it was in person. the store owner also told me he might have nes max controllers and a few other accessories buried away somewhere(bnib). He told me to come back on friday.

i am still having trouble uploading pics. i can email them to anyone who wants to help me out a little and post them.

sweet. thanks again. the guy in the last pic is my friend. Also all the snes stuff on the display has been removed. the top piece was just layed on top and the background piece is actually the poster that comes in the snes box. it was used to cover the nes background by the previous owner. no damage caused.

This has to rank as one of the greatest finds of all time! I've never seen this exact display before, although it's very similar to the M9 display, although 10x cooler since it lights up and has the rob head!
