Space Channel 5 part 2: Special Limited Edition Boxset

Everyone knows about Space Channel 5. Everyone has now seen the lovely SEGAGAGA Boxset (which I also own). Not everyone has seen this though; the limited edition boxset, only on sale in Japan, comprising headphones, pouch and game. Here are some pictures to enjoy.



The box is in fantastic condition. Arrived from Japan in just a jiffy bag - I was a bit scared!


The back of the box has some excellent blurb about the headphones. Worth paying attention to...



Well displayed here; game and headphones. It's obvious what this game is all about - the music.



The headphones are actually really good. They have a strong dynamic range and a good bass response. I must say though, I reckon I look like a right twat with them on. More than normal. It does come with a pair of black pads rather than the fluffy white ones... but... *they keep you so warm!*



Not opened the bag with the pouch - this boxset is minty fresh and it is staying that way. 

This is possibly the rarest thing I own...? Possibly...

very cool item! I remember the official dreamcast magazine reported on SC5:part 1 Japanese exclusives (I think they were fluffy pink headphones). I've heard off this package, but hadn't seen more than low quality eBay photos.

I picked one of these up a while ago, and shared a similar amount of panic while it was in transit - thankfully it arrived in one piece.

Think I might have posted this link before, but for anyone who is interested some large pictures of various space channel 5 related items.

Hey Barry - hope you like the photos!

Paperghost - it's strange because I have looked at your photo set before and I have almost exactly the same stuff! I have an R7 and the Sakura wars Dreamcast. How strange!

Maybe you two are... the same person!? "I Found You Faker!!"

Awesome photos, both in the article and in paperghost's gallery.

I need to make a photo gallery of my Dreamcast collection. I remember taking one waaaay back in 2001 and it looked pretty impressive, mostly because i had two systems at the time and every control port had a different peripheral plugged in.

Don't suppose you have a spare one of these box sets you wouldn't mind parting with? :P

Haha, that's awesome :)

I recently picked up a very odd promo music CD for the first SC5 - it's a sort of fold out cardboard case that eventually reveals a Morolian - seen that one?

If not, I'll upload some shots of it and link when they're up. It's an amazing little piece.

I got a friend to track it down for me - really hard for him to find but he did a great job!

There are usually small waves of these that pop up on ebay every few months.

expect the bidding to finish somewhere between 95 to 130 GBP, with around 15 GBP for that express airmail with insurance thing they do.

Then a little bit of import duty, depending on country...
