Hmm, I think I have a 12 pack of those mtn dew cans. Most of them are empty though. I think I kept a couple full and kept the box too. I thought there might be a demand for them when I saw them released, but I only bought a 12er because I was worried it was my inner hoarder coming out. ;)


Nice stuff everyone! I want a close up of those sega discs!

Saving Mountain Dew cans...? Does not compute...

DRClaw had one in his pics. There have always been can collectors, so I figured they were worth saving. I also never drink out of pop cans, so they have been carefully opened and rinsed several times and allowed to dry before they were stored.

I think the official way to do it is to punch a hole in the bottom of the can and let everything drain out, but that may have changed over the years.

It just seems odd to me. But I also think it's odd that people drink Mountain Dew, so I guess the world is just full of things I'll never understand.

I hate the stickers too. I do remove the ones from the front and back, but the ones on the spines...my GS store have a nasty habbit of putting the stickers on the actual cover art and whenever I try to remove them I end up ripping the insert.

As for dust....no idea. I don't do anything special, just dust about once ever 1-2 weeks


I have a how-to in my blog for just that sort of thing. May want to give it a try before giving up on it.

I have a Portal gun permit, I swear! As for the inserts I need, I'll make a list and PM you. I'd pay if your are able to do them.


OK, I'll take your word for it. But don't go getting a 4th or anything. I'll send wiggy special forces to confiscate...

Just lemme know. I'm more than happy to trade game goodies for work, just as an FYI ;)

This.

I think that makes us "old" though.

The links each have a closing bracket at the end that needs to be removed. Upon doing so, the links work just fine.

Ha ha, maybe. It just makes me think of people who save empty alcohol bottles as if they are trophies of some kind. I could understand if they were really cool bottles, but they usually seem to be pretty generic.

That post got all jumbled. I tried to fix it from my phone today (cause its all I've got on me). I'll clean it up when I get home. No idea what happened there, but I'll get it 100% sorted out ASAP.

It was originally formatted in BBcode (hence the brackets), but the post sorta disappeared and I had to paste it from elsewhere, and I obviously missed those brackets.

normally typing "m." in front of the website name takes you to the mobile site. so "m.cheapassgamer.com"

Man you people are cheap.

The only cans I have collected is the MDew GameFuel Cans and Bottles. I have all of the retail cans except for the second flavor that came with the MW3 Promotion last year and have the Halo 3 and Halo 4 20oz Bottles.

I dug these out of an old bin yesterday. Does anyone think any of these have value to it. The only 1 that's sealed is Dragon Warrior VII.

Mostly games that are horizontal are opened or were purchased from Gamefly and the ones that are vertical are still sealed.

That sealed Dragon Warrior VII is worth a decent amount (I think $100 or so) if there's no visible damage to the case or shrinkwrap, or loose discs inside. But the game's being remade so it's value will fall. But you've got stuff in the second picture that's worth more, like Skyward Sword Bundle, MGS HD LE, and Lords of Shadow LE (if it's on PS3).

You probably have a +/- $200 value lot there, depending on condition and whether the DW7 is a legit seal. Less if you sell individually and get hit with fees, more if you auction as a lot and run into a lunatic bulk buyer.

To the above poster, the only game sealed in the 1st pic is Dragon Warrior VII. In the 2nd pic most of the vertical games are sealed except Skyward Sword and Tales of Symphonia. The opened games are put horizontally because I've started some but never finished or I opened them thinking I was bout to start them then decided to play something else or were Gamefly purchases.

Started moving my PS2 and PS1 collections to my new place. Some not pictured. A lot was traded to AZ when they had the crazy TIV.

Alright. I wanted to archive what I had in my collection up to this point. I took a picture of everything I have. From here on out *for my personal records* I will be keeping tabs of what I get in any given month to see how it grows or shrinks. Thought I would post my work for you guys to check out, since when I posted my room a few pages back some people said they preferred to see individual titles in collections instead of a brief overview. I wanted to post everything in one go but apparently Flickr won't let me have access to more than 200 photos. :roll: SO I will post just my Nintendo, Sega, and Sony stuff. If people like it I will post the rest later.

Nintendo:
Spoiler



Sega:

Sony:

So those are my collections for the big three. I will probably post pictures for my other consoles some time later. I hope you guys enjoy.

I clicked all the spoilers. Very nice. I particularly envy the Saturn and PS collections. So many titles I wish I would have picked up back then. And any collection that has Sewer Shark gets an automatic A from me.

We just wanted close ups to be able to see the spine... no need to take pics of the fronts. :lol:

Anyway, fantastic collection. It was a fun journey going through all of those spoilers.
