got another pretty good score off of Craigslist. He originally wanted $200 for everything. I asked him that if no one else took it for $200 if he would sell it to me for $60 after the weekend. He said yeah.

I am concerned as to why there are so many duplicates. Still, a funtastic system and some solid titles that should put me in the +.

^ Couple of really good finds. Especially the 2nd one, pretty awesome selection of games. I have a deal set up for Wednesday morning, but it's gonna cost me $300. Going to be picking up a pretty good lot of complete GBA, GBC & N64 games, plus the systems (N64 boxed). I'll be back with pics and specifics after the deal.

So I got my N64/Gameboy bundle today for $300 that I mentioned a few days ago. I'm at work now and didn't have time to get pics of everything, but I just have a question about one of the games value, thought maybe someone here could possibly help. I got a Rampage 2: Universal Tour big box edition, complete and mint with the wolf character plush keychain included. I've looked around online a little for more info, and all I could really find was that it is fairly rare. Does anyone know what exactly its worth? Any help is much appreciated.

I tried to add the pics I took, but can't from my phone. But the box is in great shape with no creases or bends or anything, has all of the manuals, cardboard insert, game with the plastic bag on it and the plush, which is in really good condition, only some of the white paint from its teeth is peeling off.

Again, sorry for no pics, and any info is greatly appreciated. I'll continue to do some research myself as well and I'll have pics of the whole package probably tomorrow.

Yeah, me neither. I never even heard of or knew about it until today. The kid was just going through a few games and he's just like, yeah here's Rampage that came with a little guy, he's still in there. I'm just like oh cool, the more complete the better.

I ended up putting a post up over on nintendoage too asking about it, and I got a response that I certainly wasn't expecting... the guy told me I'm one of only 3 known people to have one of the keychains. I nearly shit, I can't believe this thing is that rare. With this and the vectrex find, I don't even care if I find anything for the rest of the year. I just can't believe the great luck I've been having lately.

Jeez, how fast do people respond on Craigslist? I just called about a Nintendo Wii for $30 8 minutes after it was posted, and they tell me someone is actually at their house at that moment buying it. Third time something similar has happened, I mean how does someone see the Craigslist post, contact the person, and get to the person's house all in less than 10 minutes?

Picked this up for $150 today.

Spoiler


Everything's in like new to mint condition (no scratches on the 3DS). Not sure if I should sell it and upgrade to the Animal Crossing 3DS XL or wait and see if the value rises.

Just got "owned" and made a rookie mistake. I deserved it though and luckily it was only $40 dollars.

Craigslist Ad (listing has been deleted by the seller)

GameCube with 10 games and 2 OEM controllers.
Games are mario party, zelda, mega man, mario kart, disney games, etc.

Long story short. Met up this seller at a shopping lot near the 405 freeway. He handed me the items in a bag and I handed him the cash and we then both part ways. I was in a hurry (friend's graduation ceremony) and wanted to leave before the traffic starts and plus this guy showed up 15 mins late so i didn't bother looking at them later that night. Actually he was there 10 mins before i was there, just that he did not text my number instead he was replying back via email the whole time. Got home around 9ish and found out all the games are in super bad condition, nothing but deep scratches after scratches. No freak'n power cable or video output either. I was hoping the controllers were at least functional but did not work and in awful condition. Tested the games out on my Wii and none of them work. Logged into my email immediately and replied back asking for my $$$ money back and got a replied back to "F OFF". When I got that I was like "what a dumba$$ and kinda laughed it out". Oh well. I 'm screwed either way since the seller did not leave his number and his email was the masked craigslist email.

Note: I asked the seller last night the condition of the discs and he said it was great condition and that the system works great so I kinda of believe him since i was meeting him up in a rich ass area (Irvine) and he didn't look suspicious at sight (elder white male in a bimmer).

That's odd, I usually peruse the GameCube listings around Irvine and I didn't see that one. Sorry to hear about that. Anyone know if resurfacing machines work on GameCube discs? I usually deal with people once I get a phone number which makes it much easier to track if something does go wrong in the future.

It's cool. No big deal. I know soon or later I was going to run into one. This guy posted the ad in the electronic section. Did you search it in the VG categories? Because when I did that it did not appear on it. At first I thought he sold them, but got a replied back via email from him later that night. I didn't bother asking for his number since the transaction was only $40. Over a $100 then yeah I make sure I get a number or if possible an address.

Sometimes resurfacing works, sometimes it doesn't with GC games. I've had some that were pretty bad, and after resurfacing they looked nice, but after a while of playing, they would throw a disc error.


Bored? Too much money than you know what to do with? Why not check out my Amazon Storefront? If you see anything you want, send me a PM! Make an offer, either monetary or trade! Over 2000 items, and more added daily!

I check all for sale posts. I try and get a phone number because you never know what could happen and a phone record could be useful. Either way, hope you're able to get them resurfaced and working!

it WAS going to be:

Medal of Honor Rising Sun
Mario Golf Toadstool Tour
The Legend of Zelda Collectors Edition
The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker (missing manual)

for $5 each

They e-mailed me shortly after I left the house today, and over the course of the day sold the Zelda games, so I was no longer interested.

Posted 27 May 2013 - 08:01 PM

It's kinda odd that people in my area are selling PS3s like flies. They're slim ones with two games and controllers, and they're willing to just sell them away for less than $180. It's as if they're expecting to get the PS4 or trying to dump their systems before a "price drop." Getting a Sega Saturn was as expensive as these people are wanting, and one guy even wanted to trade a PS3 for it.

Had a great buy today. We agreed on about $210 for everything in his ad.

It was suposed to be this stuff + some extra things but he couldnt find them, we settled on $157 for this.

Guy brought out a big box full of games / consoles. A lot of extra stuff he brought, was really surprised to see some really great titles. Yes, that is Lufia up in the corner.

And some gamecube games that were extras that I picked out. All the zeldas are CiB with manual, as well as tales of symphonia

All GC games except for sonic 2 battle are CiB.

I offered an even $300 for everything and he was happy to take it.
