Well if your throwing what you dont want away.

Deffinetely keep the eye. If its still good you can replace another nonworking one with it.

Umm possibly the speakers. There isnt too much else worth saving

Possibly the motor for the tape deck/CD player. Does the FM/AM reciever work? If so...make your own radio.

There are also probably a bunch of capacitors in there worth keeping.

Deconstruct the main parts of it and find a storage box in which to keep them. They will be basically worthless to try to sell...hold on to them for future projects.

Yeah, that's what I had in mind for the casing :D

I was thinking I would keep the capacitors, the laser, and the motors, maybe the rest of the circuit board for the resistors. (I don't know what's useful to save and what's not, as I know little about electronics :lol: )
