Hi, Tomy. I was wondering if you could tell me when the classic joypad converter for Saturn might be back in stock.

Would anyone be interested in joining up with me to get a bulk purchase? We'd probably need quite a few people but with this thread having 1700 views that might not be a problem. Tototek may consider manufacturing more if we can all get together for a group purchase.

Uh - what kind of converter was this? Not sure if I could use one or not. Laughing

Ah - okay, thanks. Hmm - actually ALL their adapters are sold out except the PCE/TG-16 ones. While I probably don't need a Saturn adapter, if it helps get more made, I could go in for one as well.

Just to be sure we're on the same page, this is the one you're talking about, right?

Yes, that's the one. Perhaps we can look for anyone interested from other forums as well.

Does anyone know the last time these were in production?

I need to buy at least one, but if I have to buy two just so more are made I will do it. I have one already but I really need one more. Is there any idea on how many of these need to be pre-ordered to be worth it?

10,000 Laughing

It's probably not THAT high, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't at least 100.

Well 100, is at least a very reachable goal. We have at least 3 already right?

Could we post this to Racketboy, Sega-16, or other boards to get some more people onboard?

Alternately, can we find out from Tomy whether another production run is maybe in the dice already?

I guess it would be helpful if this was posted on those other sites. I guess I could make accounts at those sites, I am not currently registered. My only concern would be if the posts were considered spam. I mean we would be posting links for people to come over here and que up to order a product.

EDIT: I can't post over in racketboy's Buy/Sell/Trade forum as I would not have an account that is 14 days old.

I'm well known at Sega-16 and I have some posts at Racketboy. I'll do it.

Well searching around I've seen some your post Genesis Knight. I've found broken remains on how to build one, but missing a few things. Well I guess we can just wait and see what happens. I mean it is still listed as the #3 top selling item on the tototEK homepage.
