^^^Sounds like you did well on the CEs. I'm guessing those are to keep not flip?

Reason I ask, I've had the had the hardest time selling what I consider desirable CEs without the games.

Would be interested to see pics if you get the (Retro?) Lancer. Two of the game shops near me have these in cases (not for sale), but they are pretty neat!

Nice for the the CEs. I'd love being able to get the stuff from CEs without buying the game, since most of the time I buy the vanilla anyway.

I remember when ToysRUs.com (or Sears.com maybe?) cleared out the GoW III Ultimate Edition for $20. I think I still have a couple still sealed in the shipping boxes in my basement. My mailman was pissed that he had to get out of his car and open his trunk to deliver my mail that day. :lol:

That sounds like me with the BLOPS Prestige Editions for $15 from BB.com. I think I spent close to $200 on them between cost & shipping. I sold 1-2 on Amazon for MORE than MSRP and got to keep the rest for free essentially. I've been trying to unload the leftover portions of the Prestige bundles(cars, medals) for $30 but still no bites.

I still have one sitting here sealed that I have listed on Amazon which SHOULD sell just before BLOPS II comes out. :evil: But they are a major league BITCH to ship. Luckily I kept the shipping boxes from them and I go UPS to get them there in 2 days max.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Sarcasm-Just one of the many services I offer.

just picked up a couple of things:
ActRaiser (SNES) $3
SNES mouse $1

Interesting thing the guy who sold me ActRaiser told me that they have over 700 games since they bought a bunch of stuff on liquidation from Midway when they went out of business. Said they are still going through the boxes so I gave him my name and number to contact me when he had some stuff to sell.

I've yet to get a single deal where I gave out my number or the person gave out theirs and I've done it about 20 times.

Wish you the best of luck.

Those NES game in the plastic cases are awesome. I've bought bad madden games for $2 just to get those cases before.

@DarkLordGreg You found a Sega Saturn for $25? That's definitely worth getting, if it is to sell to somebody else. There are a good number of games for it worth playing, and it runs X-Men vs. Street Fighter MUCH better than the PS1 version.

Every time I go to the flea market they seem to be priced about the same as ebay. I think I am doing it wrong?

I think I may have overpaid, but the box is in pretty good shape and the SNES isn't yellowed. Only came with the complete system and Killer Instinct; no paperwork or Super Gameboy. Pretty cool find but I don't know if I want to keep it as I have nowhere to display it. Sucks the game boy box is stuck to the front.
