GEOFFREY Toys 'R' Us Controller

I've decided to start this new thread as a means of keeping track of one of the top 3 most rare N64 controllers since I was one of the original "discoverer" of the controller. I'm going to take a very similar format as that of the E3 controller thread and the Hello Mac controller thread in order to keep an accurate count of how many we have identified/found in the world.

(the above picture is politely borrowed from Finngamer's website)

The current identified Geoffrey controller owner list (01/18/14):

1.) ddr2nite - Glen S. (boxed); acquired through Yahoo! Japan Auctions

That list is much shorter, so for now - no. There are only 3 of them that I know of and they haven't changed hands as much.

Edit: there is now a Hello Mac list: http://s9.zetaboards.com/Nintendo_64_Forever/topic/7362963/1/#new

I saw that one too. I'll wait for a price drop after more are found and put up for sale, just like the Hello Mac controller. The last couple sold very cheap. One for 18,000 Yen. ^_^

I completely agree. I have a feeling these controllers will be much more attainable in the coming months/years...

This is the same controller that I identified as #10 on the list. The pictures are identical. The EBay seller (10gia-kyoto) is a known reseller who buys these rare items off Yahoo Japan Auctions and then tries to flip/re-sell them for higher value on EBay. I want to :blasphemy bat: :blasphemy bat: these types of resellers.

I've updated #10's information to also include the new EBay auction.

I've edited/added information to Geoffrey #6 - as this was previously purchased by the banned N64Forever member ItsOnlyAFleshWould who is the same EBay user as mick_thunder_struck. I'm guessing/assuming that he is selling his loose Geoffrey controller, although this needs validation as to whether it is the same or duplicate controller (in which case it would be a new one, #12 on the list).

I purchased from him recently and had nothing but a positive experience for what it's worth. He's actually been great to chat with as well, I'm shocked it's the same person.

Same here! that Mick guy did a excellent controller bundle for me about a month ago, (finally got my CIB daiei hawks controller :) ) and he still answers all my questions i send him. although it did cost me $90 odd bucks for shipping to the US which i thought was a bit of a rip off by him! but oh well the controllers made up for it, Sure its the same guy from Australia?

That is typical postage cost from Australia. It is extremely expensive to post overseas. I posted 2 boxed controllers to the UK and it was around the $90 mark.

Unfortunately not. A week or two. Can't even track it once it leaves Australia -that costs even more! Our postage system is terrible.

Well I already posted this in the "Post when you buy or sell any game" thread, but I suppose it really belongs here. My trade with finngamer is complete, I received his boxed Geoffrey controller the other day. Thanks finngamer! :yeah:
