Something's up with CAG's image resizing thing. Pictures are supposed to automatically re-size to some resolution (not sure if it's a fixed number or if it depends on your computer's resolution) but it doesn't always work right. If you reload the page, it'll usually fixes the issue.


CAG did re-size 'em, but the source file size remains, and they took FOREVER to load from imageshack or wherever they were upped :(

Those are only empty steel cases - you get them for pre-ordering the movie from Best Buy. So that just means he preordered multiples and may or may not have actually picked up the movie later ;)


So they're paperclip storage? I guess I just don't get the point in keeping stuff like that. Is it useful? No. Is it valuable? No, not really. Looks like .25 worth of scrap steel to me :P

Umm look them up on ebay, the cases recently sold for way more than the $7.50 each that was paid assuming even that much was paid since you could cancel the pre order get your money back and keep the case.

Looks like 15 bucks typically. Meh. I don't call that "way" more. I call that "not worth my time to even list the thing, let alone pack it up, put a label on it, and take it to the post office."

Plus, it's not like keeping them is gonna help. Movie media doesn't typically gain or even retain value.


But if you like em on your shelf, then I guess you like em on your shelf. Plenty of people don't like the whole UGC thing, but I quite obviously embrace it. I really just wondered why anyone would have 4 or more copies of something like that.

Sure you did :-\", I'm sure you didn't go get your money back after release date and kept the cases.

Most people here have backlogs that are bigger than the average person's entire collection. You'll find out what a backlog is after you've been on CAG for a few years.:lol: And you need to do some dusting and buy some compressed air cans... for a second there, I thought your GC had a white fan.

Not sure if your replying to me, but that GC isn't actually being used. Somehow it won't read games anymore, so I just use my wii. I dust like crazy, but it just keeps pilling up:cold:and I've found that out, after much berating in a backlog thread I started:drool:

I collect mainly GC, PS2, and Genesis, but I've focused a lot on getting the Gamecube rarities.

And it's clean! ish... The boxes in the corner are my NES games, and some shipping supplies and stuff that needs to be put up for sale and such. There's just nowhere to put them.

Does anyone have all the colors of the N64 console Funtastic series? Somebody here has to have all the main 6 color variants. Would love to see the photo of these together in the wild. In the last 6 months I have picked up the Green and Ice Blue. Orange is the next one I am after.

Any information on production numbers and if any of them were bundle deals?

It might be something to do with your home's ventilation system then... my room gets much dustier than any other room in the house.

How's that going for you? It seems like ever since GS cleared out their GC games, prices on eBay skyrocketed (instead of dip). I'm glad I have most of the rarities, but I missed out on some stuff.

Yeah, our ventilation SUCKS! We don't even have heat most of the time, and the our cat seems to like to explore the vents alien style:-#Not really a surprise I suppose that it's so bad, but really annoying anyway

I'm still kicking myself for trading in Double Dash, Paper Mario, Air Ride, Pikmin, Jungle Beat, Party 4&7, and so so many more gems, for pennies at gamestop. Been rebuying them lately at a used media store. You can find games in the "very scratched" that look and play great for $4.50 a piece (Pikmin 2 for five bucks!). Definitely has been rather barren though lately. Would like to know where everyone is finding this stuff:)

The green was originally bundled with Donkey Kong 64 (I got that bundle for xmas as a kid), but I don't think any of the other colors were ever part of a bundle.

I found this video on Youtube:

Why do people so often assume that the funtastic colors were each produced in different quantities? As in "the next most rare one in my collection..."

For all we know they made 200K of each color.

I'm kinda in the same boat. I've got a lot of the basic stuff, all the Zeldas, Pokemons, SSBM, Double Dash, etc, and a few of the really rare titles, like Skies of Arcadia and Pikmin 2 but there are a couple major holes. Right now I'm really after Phantasy Star Online 1&2+ and Cubivore.

I know how you feel. I hate myself for trading in many of my games to Gamestop long ago.

I share the same pain with the Gamecube games. Have sold off and rebought my collection I think three times now. Only have about 15 games this time around and then the prices skyrocketed on ebay. Was hoping to pick up Windwaker and Twilight Princess but they are way over what I want to pay. Glad I rebought Tales of Symphonia for a decent price.

The only reason I have WW again is because I found it in the $5 bin. If I ever find another, I'm gonna try and flip it. Will try and remember to look you up if I do, wouldn't mind selling it cheap to a fellow CAG (WW are pretty easy to find, though I've never seen TP). The ones I really want are Double Dash and Paper Mario, but those go for around 30 on ebay, and that's crazy IMO for a gamecube game. Anyone know if gamestop is doing their 75% off still?
