Code of Princess from an obscenely helpful Gamestop employee who had a sealed CIB one shipped from another store for $30 and the GBC from a CAG lowball for $23! He had it listed as Good, but the box is absolutely flawless and the system doesn't have anything major on it.


Posted Image

I went yard saling with a friend and found the PS2 with Logitech wireless controller for $20, and Animal Crossing for $3. Unfortunately AC is missing the memory card.

Posted Image

I found this for $40 - way more than I typically spend on a single item at a yard sale. I thought originally it was the model indicated on the box, and thus worth a lot more, but still not a bad pickup for the price.

Well another sunday meant another trip to the local Flea Market. Seem to be able to walk away with something every time I go. Everything pictured below I spent about $50 on. A bit more then I'd like to spend usually but hate to walk away with nothing.

First stop before I went inside, checked out all the outside vendors and managed to find this GBA in a box for $5, cheap enough to buy in my opinion. Didn't really want to get back into handheld collection but figured I may as well grab a few games for it so I looked around inside and found F-Zero and Gunstar Heroes CIB.
Posted Image

From the same guy I got the GBA games at I also took a look through his Genesis games again, this has been where I've been getting them the last few weeks. Pretty much cleaned him out at this point but managed to get these today.
Ghouls and Ghosts
Strider
Steel Empire
Exo Squad
Shining in the Darkness
Asterix and the Great Escape
Posted Image

Not a bad day and can't wait to go again next Sunday and take a better look at his GBA games and see if there is anything else good hidden in there.

Haha this has all been just to prepare me for yard sales. Hoping for a great summer. Honestly though I've been surprised how much I've found at this flea market considering I drove by it all the time not bothering to go.

Toysrus, they are $40 each, they had a 25% off coupon that was running all last week but didn't notice until yesterday. I guess there is going to be a third one (Minion Tim) but I don't think it has been released yet.

Here's the usual stuff,

Now this stuff I picked up today after going to a garage sale. The lady was cleaning out her son's "clutter" as she called it because he had too much stuff, and he's currently out of town, so she took the opportunity to hold a garage sale and dump her son's things into the garage sale too. There was a box marked $1, which was filled with mostly junk, but then I saw a stack of games next to the box and asked the lady how much the games were. She looked over at the box and saw it was marked $1, so I wasn't sure if she might have thought I just dug those out of the box or not, but she just told me she'd be willing to do $10 for everything. Needless to say I made out like a bandit for $10. ^__^

All complete with the exception of Totori, and Dynasty Warriors 7, Falling Stars, and Naruto are still sealed.

One day your wife or gf will do the same to you and squarehead and some lucky punk is going to get a huge score. It's the cycle of collectibles.

Rather then getting some kids game with their name written in marker they'll get yours with some fancy cover art lol.

I can't imagine if it happened to squarehead. It would be the biggest anime lot found in the wild. Probably even bigger then little brick and mortar stores liquidating. His collection is big enough that IMO he shouldn't even be renting if he is. He should own or be in a mortgage. Other wise he is renting with a collection big enough for a down payment on a mortgage.

I'd also be scared to own that much stuff without insurance. I'd literally be scared evey time I'm away from my house unless you have insurance.

What's funny is I know some real situations like this. They say my wife or gf will never do that. Next thing their wife is giving away their stuff for free.

The only safe way is to be single living on your own and trust no one. Or trust some wife who will stab you in the back and divorce you years later. 50% chance btw.

I will definitely shit an entire brick house if that ever happened, and will have divorce papers on my end ready in hand.

Luckily I am indeed, so I will be able to recoup some of it in the event anything like that happened, but personal property coverage may or may not even cover all of that collection since everything else in the house will dig in to that cost. :*(

But yeah, if anybody that I ever live with does that to me I'd be one sad panda. T____T

Been on a cruise for the past few days and am finally getting a chance to post some stuff I found during the travel time:

Posted Image

I found these Wii Guitar Hero guitars at a thrift store in St. Robert. They ended up being $2 each so it was a nice deal.

Posted Image

We were just about to the ship for boarding in Galveston. I saw this sale advertised and checked it out. Glad I did! They had tons of games but nothing stellar. I did manage to pick the following though:

Dungeon Siege III (360)
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox)
Kingdom Hearts (PS2)
Xenosaga Episode I (PS2)

They came out to supposed to be $15 but I talked her down to $7. Dungeon Seige came in handy later as you'll see...

Posted Image

This was a nice find at a Galveston EZ Pawn shop. I picked up:

Starfox 64 3D (3DS)
Disgea 3 (PS3)

I ended up talking her to $15 for the pair which was awesome. I went to another EZ Pawn later and found that the Starfox game was supposed to be a 'Premium Video Game' priced at $25 and it was marked $10 and Disgea came handy a little later...

Posted Image

This was a nice find at an EZ Pawn in Texas. It was tucked in the back of a display case and I had on of the workers pull it out. It turned out it was the Special Edition of Bioshock 2. Included in it was:

Outer Box
3 Bioshock 2 Posters
Sealed Soundtrack CD
Sealed Soundtrack Record
Bioshock 2 Artbook
Bioshock 2 Game

The kicker was that it was marked $19.99. They wouldn't budge on the price but I couldn't argue.

Posted Image

This was the find I've been waiting for. While traveling to Galveston I used the GameStop app to try and find this at every store along the way. Finally, on the way back, it turned out that a store across the street where we had lunch in Huntsville, TX. They had literally gotten it in as this same store didn't have it when I had passed through earlier. I traded Dungeon Siege III on 360 and Disgaea 3 to bring the price to $40 for it. XENOBLADE!!!!

Posted Image

Picked up this game at a pawn shop in Springfield, MO. It was $5 and I ended up Klonoa for Wii. This was another game on my want list.

Posted Image

Found this nice deal at a Red Racks in Springfield, MO. It's a wireless drum set for 360 for Guitar Hero. I ended up paying $5.98 for it but it will flip nicely.
