Thanks for the feedback guys.
For pricing look at it this way.

-Black system = AU$15-$20 DON'T PAY ANY MORE unless it's boxed or bundled with extras such as games or dvd kit.

- Crystal Pack = AU$60-$80 depending if boxed or not. Remember this comes with TWO crystal controllers.

- Debug = AU$200-$250 if it has beta content on the drive expect to pay A LOT more.

- Kasumi-Chan = AU$500 in box, if new maybe close to double that.

- Pure White = AU$800

- Smoke Black = AU$200? Last price I could find for the system on some web store.

- Launch Team 2001 = AU$1,000 rough figure but they're super rare complete.

Anyone in the USA will be able to pick up these systems quite easily. Number one reason why I hate being in Australia lol. Will live in the US later, someone I know from the net is a die-hard fan of the XBOX but he's in the BETA/Alpha part of the XBOX.

I managed to pick up a Crystal for $20 some time ago which was nice. I do often see regular black ones at thrift stores for around $15-$20.
Pro tip: See if you can plug them in to see if they contain a disk in the tray! Might make the purchase sweeter.

I feel so bad for Australian gamers, every Australian gamer I know pays ridiculous prices for any game. It's not like it's just a couple systems that are more rare and expensive over there, it's literally every system. But I'm surre you don't need me to tell you this.

It works out cheaper to import around the world than to buy locally, even after postage/shipping. Everything is expensive here, other than food I don't support local businesses as my money goes to other countries.
Not XBOX related but a "retro" store here was selling a Dreamcast that had bug shit all over it for $200, no dreamcast loose is worth $200 - but they sold it some how...

XBOX stuff though isn't so expensive a lot of people try to get rid of them.

That's exactly how I managed to pick up an extra game or two :D.

I find the charcoal Xboxs in Goodwill constantly, and they're always around $10, sometimes up to $17. I've still got my launch day Xbox (with the wonderful broken Thompson drive that I haven't fixed yet...yay procrastination!), but I picked up another from Goodwill for $12 (perfect condition, not a scratch on it, and with a copy of ATV Unleashed in the tray), and then found another one the same day at a garage sale for $2! I've modded one of them and given it to a friend as a media center, so I'm down to two measly charcoal systems :D.

Looking to pick up the special editions, but that's not a high priority at this point in time given my desire to finish off my Saturn collection.

So I've started a collecting guide series on YouTube. So far here are just some recommendations from my personal favourites, then I'll move onto more good stuff ­čÖé

So i don't know, i MAY MAY be getting an original for Christmas, dropped a hint to my cousin, and i know he was christmas shopping in that area a few days ago. The reto store in that area had/has a halo special edition, with hook-ups, halo-green controller(s), and a halo ce, collectors halo 2, and halo 2 map-pack discs. Would be cool as, while i have my halo ce, and halo 2 discs, both are scratched the hell up. Idk though, i'll let ya'll know.

Hey Hex1gon, how much in US$ costs AU$1,00? If Im not wrong you showed a Smoke Black that really is beautiful. Im taking a break on spending right now, but that one will probably be my next console.

AU$1 is US$0.96c. Take a very careful approach looking for the Smoke Black, make sure it has the production number keychain. Otherwise it's practically worthless or impossible to resell in the future.
