I agree, however the original tweeter needs to read what he tweets.  The images clearly show a MP130 not 100 lol.  Does anyone know when the show is supposed to be set?  90's I know but early or mid/late?  The 130 came out later, only a year or so before the 2000 if I remember correctly.

Personal history: I had bought a almost unused 120 with the original box and all because someone had bought a 130.  Then a few months to a year later I got a 130 because the 2000's had come out.  Although this time it WAS brand new except for the package being open.  In this case it was a doctor where he had just bought it in the store, opened it, and heard about the 2000.  He got one a few days after.  I also did all of this online and long before ebay, it was on the usenet newsfeeds.

Oh how times have changed.
