I have a friend that is willing to sell me his game developement kits.
He has:
Wii dev kits - he says they are red and green
Gamecube dev kit
DS dev kit
Gba dev kit
PS2 dev kit
Dreamcast dev kit
N64 Dev kit
I have not seen these yet and know nothing about how much dev kits are worth. Do you guys know the current values of these? I am going over to his house this weekend I wanted to know what to look for.

Rough prices as I've not looked at dev hardware in a while..

GameCube dev kits come in a few varieties:

GBOX is a PC looking thing with GC controller ports. It's not going to be worth it unless if he has all the connecting cards that need to go in a accompanying PC (and even then that PC would need to run WinXP or older OS with SDK software). These aren't really worth buying.
$50-500 depending on what it comes with

NPDP Reader (Red Cube with Cart slot on the top), there isn't too much you can do with it, even if it comes with a cart.
$250 or $400 if it comes with a cart with something actually on it.

NR Reader (Green cube), as above, this one will only run NR discs which are beta/prototypes
$150-$350

TDEV (Brown cube), as above, this one will only run NR discs but has a whopping 48MB of primary RAM and a USB port. It will require software for both the cube and the PC it connects to.
$500-$1000

The upper prices are if the units are boxed/mint condition - since a lot of this stuff was used by testers it's usually very bad condition.

Gamecube dev stuff is neat. If you have a chance to pick it up for a decent price, you should do it!

I’ll attach some pics of my nr reader for you or anyone else. I spent about $400 for mine with the box
