Good! I know games, but know nothing about anime post 1999, and as such, I never have an effing clue what you've picked up :P LOL!




I've wanted one of these forever, and 50 bucks seemed like a fair enough price considering I don't see them all that often, plus I sent out some hefty invoices this week and felt like treating myself to something without thinking too much about the price :) Hunting for deals is fun and all, but sometimes it's nice to just buy something without too much fuss, you know?

Hare was like Beauty in Bobobo - the constant freaking out whenever anything not normal happens got really annoying really fast.

I'm really hoping Sailor Moon makes it to bluray some day since the dvds can get pricey.

Actually, I managed to snag 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 of Sailor Moon S for under $20 each. Volumes 1 and 5 were actually $12.

Now the box sets, those can get expensive. Unfortunately, Toei won't license it out until either a) it gets broadcast on TV again or b) the licensee also picks up Pretty Guardian.

Man that sucks. I barely remember Sailor Moon from my childhood since we didn't have cable till after CN stopped airing it. Same went for yu yu, but I picked up the series not too long ago and fell in love with the series. I'm 94% ill do the same with sailor moon.

Well, even though the creator of the show wasn't there like she was supposed to be, stupid illness, I still got a signed by the producer of my new favorite documentary.

They were still going for a pretty penny before the show started. Saw a few sets 1-99 or higher go for around $2000 maybe the last 6 months. Usually go for 3-4. I was thinking about buying one and then selling the key issues then the rest as a lot and keep #1. I'd make most or all my money back, so one would be free... Just would be a lot of work.

Oh yeah, they are also having a variant of number 1 for each Wizard Con this year. Portland was Michael Golden, St Louis was Arthur Suydam. Go for around. $30-60 each on eBay. The other variant cover artists haven't been announced yet.


Haha funny that you mention that. I worked at St Louis Wizard Con and ended up buying a TWD #1 Variant from an attendee since vendors weren't given one. Ended up buying it off a lady for 20 bucks.

Went bouncing around between the flea market, Goodwill and Salvation Army. Unfortunately, the weather got really bad, so I only managed to pick this up from the flea market for $10:

I went through three different Goodwill stores and neither had anything worth getting, which really drove me up a wall. None of them had any games, let alone DVDs or even PC games. Salvation Army was my last hope. I managed to come away with this for $3 total:

Damn, I wish I had that PS1 game. I have the longbox version of it but without a disc XC

Pretty sure I'm just going to hang on to my Songbird edition at this point instead of returning it, since it seems like it's selling out at most places. X-Wing for $3 at a local place, the Tomb Raider controller and Luigi's Mansion were both from Newegg for $40 and $30, Fire Emblem from Ebay for $60ish, VC3 artbook from Amazon, MAG from Gamestop for $1, and the PS3 from Target clearance for a friend for $150.

ME3, Medievil II, Mario Kart and SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked were from AWD for pretty good prices. Mario Kart and SMT are both going back though, as Mario Kart was listed as the version with the wheel, and SMT has a good sized dent/rip on the front. Alas.

Took a trip to the Super Flea (local flea market) today and acutually came away with some decent stuff. The Genesis games are all pretty rough but were worth it.

Dragon Warrior cost me $4 and Life Force cost me $10, not the best price on either but didn't want to leave empty handed at the time. Finally as I was about to leave came across these Genesis/32x games and walked away with them for $25.

I got:
Sub Terraria
Chakan
Grindstormer
Mystic Defender
Mega Turrican
Vapor Trail
Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi
Tempo (32x)

Not a bad day overall when I went in expecting nothing. Would've liked the Genesis games to be in better condition but I've been looking for a few of them cheap.

Of all those games the one that didn't work was Grindstormer, the one game I wanted the most ...... I've cleaned it many times but it appears to be a dead cart, from what I've read on the internet Tengen games seem to have issues, I may try to swap the rom onto another Genesis game PCB but that is for another day.

Just picked up Sleeping Dogs for $21 on Amazon this weekend. I've heard a lot of good things about the game. Looking forward to trying it out.

Well I got it working. I took it to the extreme level of swapping rom chips. I sacrificed Joe Montana Footballs PCB and swapped the rom onto it's board. Had to desolder 42 points on each board and then solder the rom chip onto the board. Never thought it would work but it did so I managed to revive my copy of Grind Stormer. Gotta say I am quite thrilled.
