    Apr 8, 2008, 11:32 PM - Wow!!! A REAL Casio MQ-1 #1

    I honestly never thought I would find one of these babies. I managed to find one while helping my brother-in-law cleaning out his garage and found it in a plastic storage box. Once I seen it, my heart was rapidly beating fast.....all out excitement of course.

    It's a shame that this fine piece is going to be taken apart.

    Nice find man. If you want to come over and help clean my garage, you might find something there as well.

    Anyone have any idea how much these cost when they were brand new?

    Nice find. Just be careful taking it apart. They buttons on top will go everywhere.

    Very nice score!
    Once you disassemble it, I'd be happy to take all the pieces you don't need.
    I'll take the 1) Keypad and 2) Circuit board. . . . They're just junk and you don't want them cluttering up your work space.

    Very impressive. Looks brand new.

    I just relisted the item on eBay. 75$ starting price for bidders or buy it now for 110$. Free shipping worldwide. Check it out here.

    You do realize you are supposed to post this in the junkyard ONLY . And correct me if I'm wrong, but according to TDH rules you are supposed to have 10 posts before you have full access. You're simply trying to get around the system by posting in this thread.

    The keypad goes on the left gauntlet and the circuit board goes into the helmet.
