This is the all in price.

Total Price for each
Sega New Net City---------$2,142.66 CND
Sega Astro City-------------$1,681.37 CND

There was also a Sega Naomi with Capcom vs. SNK in the NNC, I could sell that to recoup some cost, as I already have a Naomi. Some could see this as a bit steep and a tiny bit more than I was hoping to pay, but I've been searching for both of these for the last couple years and any time that I see these type listed for anything less than $1500, they are normally snapped up in minutes. And usually they are more than a few hours drive, to get them.

Sorry for the lack of updates, got busy, and the two have been sitting there, I haven't got them into the house yet.

I did get the one for the NNC open, gave it a good cleaning, there are some scuffs here and there. Popped open the service panel to review everything that was there and how its all wired up. Considering that this came from HK, I was hesitant of just plugging it in. Looking inside, there was a massive step down transformer, from 220v to 100v. Thank fully someone removed the electrical connection of this from the machine I didn't have to do anything, everything was wired just fine. I plugged it in, and and powered it up. Before anyone says it, the voltage at my home is 114V, and the chassis for the monitor is rated between 100V - 120V. Every thing powered up alright screen looks good, sound is muffled, and all the controls look new, like they were new. Both 15k and 31k look really good on this display.

I played around with the sound and found that if i pushed the RCA connector going in to the Naomi, it sounded fine. So I pulled that out, and put in another one, and that one was fine. Probably something wrong with the filter board that could probably be fixed easily.

I did take one of the panels in to a paint shop and got a match made in enamel paint that I will use to cover some scrapes and marks on the base, once that has dryed up, I'll take in to the house.

The Astro City, I got the top and one of the sides off. This one isn't as good condition as the first one. Looks like it was repainted... with out disassembly. It wasn't too bad, just not the best. There is also a weird square 5x3cm hole just underneath the controls panel, can't really see it. Otherwise, it's all fine. I haven't been able to plug it in yet.

Didn't even notice that, I saw two colours that are correct and in a group. Usually, these are just replace with what ever is sitting around. I'll put them in the correct spot when I'm done.

For Customs and Duties, it wasn't that bad, I cleared it my self, I only paid 5% of the selling price, after the conversion from USD to CND. The Importing fee is likely same if I brought in 1- 20, so since it was two, the cost per unit is high.

The $305 for shipping was well worth it, but if I wanted, i could have rented a truck and picked it up myself, to save. But I didn't want to bother with it this time.

For where I am, and where they they came from, it was a very realistic cost for sending 2 units compared to a container.
