Weird Controller Finds?

Just post any cool/awful/extraordinary controllers you've purchased here.

^^^^ Picked these up today- I've seen Wireless genesis controllers before, but never a receiver like this. Oh, well. 10 bucks was a pretty good deal.

Image

This I found at Goodwill for 6 bucks- a SNES arcade stick that memorizes moves and is made of rather heavy metal.

I'm not sure if these are obscure to you guys, but I'd love to see what you've dug up over the years, controller-wise.

I found this controller for the Genesis rather obscure. Found it in early May.

Otherwise, just standard controllers, steering wheels, and the occasional Guitar Hero guitar.

i remember something on ebay called a playstation slimline controller, for 8 bucks shipped.
It was the standard Ps1 no-analog controller, but it was all flat and funky looking. :?:

Anyone ever picked up one of those N64 "Boomerangs" before? They actually look kinda cool.

Isn't that the pad that has two Z buttons next to the L and R buttons?

Also, what does the 2nd stick do? It seems like all it would do is double as a second D-Pad or C-buttons in stick form. Actually looks pretty cool, now if only I could find one to test it out...
