I have never seen one of these for sale. Only place I've ever seen them is on a video on YouTube.

But yeah, if you just keep one thread in the wtb section, if someone comes along trying to sell one, I'm sure you'd be able to connect with them

You used to see them quite regularly back around 2010 - that was when the GBA was discontinued and most the developers started dumping their gear. One strange thing about the GBA was that even a lot of licensed developers were using pirate flash carts for testing - the original official Nintendo cart was huge and although they later made a reduced size "S" flash cart it was quite limited in capacity.

The pirate carts were smaller (same form factor as a regular cart), flashed faster, supported larger ROM images and were a lot cheaper.

Yeah I've noticed unofficial dev stuff floating around as well. I think it was Andrew that showed me basically a mini DVD on Ebay that someone claimed was a gamecube prototype. It was either the worst scammer ever, or devs just hacked the gamecube and burned their own discs.
