  1. Nice! I’ve wanted to see a complete version of this even though I don’t collect MK III games. I had a few some years back, but sold them off when I decided to not dive into that system. Had I known you were around, I’d have offered them to you, of course! One was a boxed Phantasy Star that was complete, but the box was a bit worn.

    And hey! I wonder if that Alex Kidd BMX game could be seen as a precursor to Mario Kart? Probably not, as there was a Mario rally game for the Famicom Disk system… but I think that was a straightforward racer for the most part. Hmm…. I need to dig out the Twin Famicom and try that again, it seems. It’s been a few years…

    • Ah, I only wish Alex Kidd BMX tail was near as good as Mario Kart! I haven’t even played BMX Trail but I know already 🙂 I just want it because I’m Sega crazy.
      I’ve always wanted the Famicom and Super Famicom. I might pick them up one day. Maybe even the Twin too. That’s the disk system, right?

      • Well, the Twin Famicom was made by Sharp and combines a Famicom and Disk System into a single unit. Normally, you’d need a Famciom and a Famicom Disk Drive linked together, but this solves that issue completely. I don’t know what they go for these days, but I ended up grabbing one because I kept hearing about Famicom disk drives needing the belt replaced when bought used and I didn’t want to have to deal with that.

        That and I would have preferred to get both FC and the Drive from one place and when I was looking, I could only find them separately and I think the few I found together cost a load of loot to ship because of the boxed weight. I think I got my Twin loose but with something like eight games for what it cost to ship the two systems together, so that was a nice deal…

        • I just did a search and I like the look of the Twin Famicom. Specially the red unit! It’s pretty cool. You seem to have everything geelw! I’m pretty jealous 😛
          I’ve seen the FC and Drive as separate units and you’re right the cost of shipping just puts the price over the top. I was close to buying them at one point.
          How are the disk games as far as longevity goes? Are they holding up and lasting as long as cartridges?

          • My Twin Famicom is back and green (not as flashy as the red model, but I kind of prefer that color scheme). I have a pic around here somewhere, but I thought I posted it already. Guess not. Hmmm. I guess it’s time to go through some bins here again! My poor old back is just DYING to lift a bunch of heavy stuff tonight! 😀

        • I do like the look of both systems. Both the Twin and the double unit model. I think when I first saw your post that you link to above I didn’t know what the Twin Famicom was. You and geelw really do have everything!! 😀

      Do you also collect Sega Mark III games? How many do have so far? Complete or just carts?
