Here are some additional pics. I know the brown pieces go with the 80's hotwheels track and the tank elevator and garage walls go to the gi joe base, but I am not sure about the round piece.

Just a heads up but the gray piece in the upper left hand corner appears to be a 1983 GI Joe Dragonfly Helicopter Chin Turret Gun.

It's worth a couple a bucks.

It was raining, so I really didn't feel like going out. I went to one sale, picked this all up for 4 bucks.

The Gameboy pocket looks fantastic, but unfortunately when I got home to test it it didn't play any games. :( It still looks nice, so I figure I might as well hold on to it.


Excellent pick there on Vampire: Bloodlines, now you simply must visit The Asylum as a Malkavian 8-)

Wow, I'm impressed. :applause: I knew it was GI Joe, but I wouldn't have known exactly what vehicle it was from (without looking it up)!


EDIT: I thoroughly looked over the "round silver base thing" and I do not see any markings.

Your mysterious silver thing looks pretty familiar to me... can't put my finger on it though. :x Have you tried putting the pictures on a forum specifically for toys? Those folks might be able to help you out better than us.

Yes! Today and yesterday I got my yard sale mojo back after weeks of finding nothing.

I'd love to own these, but they just seem like so much of a hassle to deal with. I don't have a CRT to play them on. I wish they'd put out a collection for the Wii or something.

Today, I got a stack of Nintendo DS game cases for free, club nintendo codes unused for the few nintendo games (the woman said I just missed the garbage man that took off an even bigger box of cases, damnit.)

I also got a stack of random stuff for about $5 (a few things for my niece, tortilla press, scale, stack of cds.)

Went to the monthly book sale at the library and picked up a few books pretty cheap at 50 cents a piece (Hawking's Brief History of Time, Encyclopedia of World History, Diner's Drive ins, and Dives cookbook, and a few art books.)

Go post a picture on hisstank and ask if anyone knows what it is from, you'll probably get an answer in 5 minutes (daytime that is.)

Not many games today but a good smattering of assorted "valuable" items.

My brother found a YuGiOh Disc Launcher at a yard sale, worth roughly 50 bucks, but no one was at the sale and no one answered the door when he knocked. He waited around for a bit, and eventually just left a dollar bill on the table and took it.

No telling what they wanted for it. :/

Other than that, I declare this season to be the year of the PS2, because nearly every sale I've attended had an old fat PS2 and the same group of hunting/sports games for about 50 bucks.


I agree . . . it was true already last year but we are clearly in the age of getting rid of PS2s. 8-10 years ago it was N64s and PSs. A few years from now it will be Wiis--and they will be cheap.

What's interesting is that people's valuation is a little out of whack. PS2 slims are worth $50 and people will sell them for $20 (obviously more or less) . . . while Wiis are worth about $60 but all of the ones I see, the people want $100.

Also, I'm seeing record numbers of cheap DVDs.

Wiis are overpriced here too, but that may be a result of more "casual gamers" buying consoles.

At least you guys are seeing Wii stuff, I'm seeing almost nothing. Today I picked up NFL Street 2 and Spyro A Hero's Tail for GC for $2 total. Once I start flipping things, I can probably get a couple of bucks, so why not.

People to not steal. Unless the price was marked, and you leave at least that amount. Leaving $1 for what you knew was worth $50?

I bought a $300 network tester for $5 yesterday. Was I stealing?

Like I said, I don't think I would have done what he did, but leaving your yardsale unattended is pretty much asking people to pay you on the honor system.

That was the asking price, so no. It'd be more like if they said $50, and you put a $5 somewhere and take it anyways.

I would have waited for a person to show up or left and came back later. I don't think it is morally right to leave a person the amount that you think they might have wanted.


Other news, I was at a sale yesterday that had a bunch of kids toys, boy stuff. I picked up some stuff and asked how much. Lady told me 25cents each wtf. Dirt cheap. So I got 5 things totaling $1.25. I gave the lady $2 and told her to keep the change, she would not have any of that. She wouldn't accept it, she basically put the change in my pocket.

Honestly, I wouldn't have just left money either. I was just pointing out that it isn't worth tearing into the guy. I have a bigger problem with people lowballing kids or lying about items values, both of which seem to be applauded around here.

I have paid more than people's asking price before, and if I am getting a solid deal I don't ask for a lower price.

Yes the lowballing kids thing is such a dick move IMO. Worse then taking crap from some idiot who Leaves their yard sale unattended.

Same here. A few weeks ago I had scrap metal (for my own projects) go missing from the side of my shed, which is 20' from the curb, clearly not on the curb. Happened on a garbage night, so I know it was a scrapper.

I ended up posting a rant on Craigslist, only to get a few emails from "fellow scrappers" defending the dickhead, saying that I shouldn't have had left the stuff outside, within view of the street and that the person did nothing wrong by taking it. Apparently, outright theft is advised in the scrapping community, which is what this is. State law says if it's not on the curb, it's private property, making removal of said property theft.

I've also had a well cover go missing, leaving a gaping hole in my backyard. Best thing was one night I left a few bits of metal out, and some asshole came to my door, at 10pm, asking if I had anything else for him to take. He then had the balls to ask if he could take the metal swingset in my backyard, the one I just built earlier that day for my daughter. These people are like fucking meth heads around here.

I used to leave scrap out from time to time, but not anymore. I'll take it to the junkyard myself.

Scrapping got so bad here that apparently the local shop got into hot water about accepting stolen items. Now they are required to make a copy of the drivers license, take a photo of the items being turned in and take a photo of the person turning it in. Theft still happens around here, but the scrappers have to travel out of county to turn it in to shops that don't take this info. The guy that lived in the rental across the street used to scrap, he would be up until at least midnight hammering on metal items for whatever reason. Thankfully he moved away.
