  1. I shouldn’t laugh, but I could see your soul leave your body when you opened each package. All worked out in the end as most of these were fixed in later videos 🙂

  2. Hey Tito!!! I don’t get the love for the PC engines but I never heard of them before. Maybe if I would have had one growing up or a friend did I’d be more into them.

  3. Does Sendico charge the consolidation fee per order? I kind of got carried away and bought a couple of things and haphazardly through everything into a single parcel. 😅

    Regardless, great video Sendico is really dope.

  4. Hey Tito, very fun video, it feels like looking at lottery numbers popping up xD
    I feel you got a got pickup regardless, I guess you’ll spend more time on repairing them – which is part of the fun anyways.

  5. Great video, the lot seems kinda expensive for me, as in Spain those consoles are sold in good condition for 30-35usd, but now I'm already waiting for new videos from you so we can see what are you planning with them 🙂 Keep it up man!

  6. I’ve had really good luck with Saturns on eBay lately, bought a nice Japan Grey Saturn for the Fenrir ODE and it just happened to have the video card in it. I sold the video card and basically paid myself back for the Saturn. Then I ordered an untested US Saturn, worked great but with a dying laser. Replaced the CD drive with my leftover one from the Japanese unit, worked great. Sold it for a little profit and restored a Saturn for someone to enjoy in the process. Now I’ve got another one with a bad laser, and I’m gonna try to replace on my own. Lightning can indeed strike a few times!

  7. I really enjoy your videos, thanks for sharing your experiences with us. I’m curious, what do you usually do with all your modded handhelds, do you simply keep them, re-sell them?…

  8. What up Tito?? I think you still got a good deal, as modder most of of the gba problems are solved by a good clean up; hope you get’em working. Good luck! ( I am so jealous about the pc engine gt)

  9. Be careful Tito that yahoo auction can be addictive😉 I got in introuble at home because i was going a bit wild with it😅. Nice pick ups man your gonna push me to buy a pc engine gt. Great video
