If you ever attempt to complete a nice collection, the biggest challenges I experienced were:

1. finding original Rockman enclosures in nice condition (especially, a Version II!)

2. acquiring a REV9 X100 (there are plenty of REV8s and either REV10 version but not so many REV9s!)

3. acquiring a Tenth Anniversary X100 (this was not a priority for me until I had the opportunity to acquire a MINT one!)

NOTES:

Original battery doors in nice condition are getting harder to find!

Many of the original Rockmans are missing the internal metal square attached to the channel selector that engages the compressor in DIST and EDGE. Not only does that make the unit incomplete but it usually makes the unit sound crappy!

The late model X100 with the side jack is the most coveted but also the easiest to acquire since they made so many of them. If you wait long enough, you can still find a museum piece!

Yeah, I am glad that my Rockman Model I has the metal square.
