It gets even better. He listed the shipping for $5, but used a Flat Rate box for some reason and ended up paying $12 for shipping.

Somebody please kill me.

So I put in a bid at local estate sale with an online auction and managed to pick up all of the following the other day for $60. There were also a bunch of electronics (most junk), but here's what I got as far as gaming goes:

 

-2 N64's, working, one with cords and 1 without

-1 N64 expansion pak, going to my brother

-4 OEM N64 controllers, all working and with tight thumbsticks, and 1 non-OEM N64 controller

-1 Dreamcast, working, with cords, 1 OEM controller, 1 non-OEM controller, and 1 non-OEM light gun thing

-1 PS2 multi-tap w/ 4 DualShock 2 controllers

-A working NBA Basketball Tiger Handheld w/o battery cover and non-working Police Academy Tiger Handheld w/ battery cover

-1 non-working original Gameboy

-NUBY Game boy Power Pak, doesn't seem to be working.

-1 non-working Game Gear w/ tote

-Dreamcast game: Mission Confidential (disc only)

-N64 games: Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, Ken Griffey SlugFest (I think), Toy Story 2, Shadows of the Empire, and a Game Shark. All work except for Shadows.

-Gameboy Games: Golf, Super Mario Land, Link's Awakening, Robocop 2, R.C. Pro Am, WWF Showdown. All tested and working.

-Game Gear games: Sonic 2, Bart vs. The Space Mutants, Battleship. All untested.

-A whole bunch of extension cords

The rest of the electronics stuff had some interesting pieces, like an old but unused Teleprinter, a DVD player, and bunch more extension cords, but nothing I need. Still kind of neat to rummage through.

 

IMG 20130724 083555 759

 

All in all, pretty happy with my purchase. I'll definitely be keeping the games, as I seem to have misplaced most of my copies of those, and I now have a full set of good N64 controllers, with each a different color. PS2 controllers and multi-tap were also something I needed, and I do so love GB games. I think I'll keep the GB and Game Gear around for tinkering, too. I'm trying to sell the non-video game junk on CL at the moment for $20, but I still haven't decided what I want to do with the VG stuff I don't need. I'm torn between putting it on CL or giving it to MAGFest and getting reimbursed, but either way I think I should be able to recoup my investment and that's all I really care about.

Been a rather uneventful week, but did get this. Couldn't go to the flea market last sunday as I got stuck working my first sunday in a while. I did pick this up on ebay for about $10. Still filling a few holes in my Genesis collection.

pretty much. I prefer anime over manga but since the anime is out of print this is the only way to support him for now until the hunter x hunter 2011 anime gets licensed.

Defiance from gamestop and Kirby from Best Buy.

My internet has been very limited since moving and I now live an hour away from modern civilization, so I have no real pick-ups this month. But I did get a few decent things at the local thrift store (cross-posted from HERE)...


I stopped by the local thrift store today and found some goodies. I didn't expect there to be any video games whatsoever because most people around here aren't into gaming (most are into the outdoors or meth, sometimes both) but I found Side Pocket and Test Drive II for Genesis, both complete and in good shape (except for Side Pocket's manual). They also had Quarterback Attack for Saturn, also complete; even has the coupons and a little protective sponge. One corner of the case is broken so it won't stay together, but everything inside is in perfect condition. If it weren't for the case, I'd swear it was brand new. All of the games were $3 each, which is more than I wanted to pay, but game finds are so rare and I think this is the first time I've seen a Saturn game in person since 1996, so I went ahead and got them.

I was also happy to snag a bunch of glasses from various casinos and bars like Hard Rock, Fitzgerald's, Lady Luck, and a few others. Also got a couple of wine glasses from Solvang and some nice whiskey glasses, along with a couple of other pieces. When I was loading everything into my cart, I didn't even notice that they were on sale for 10 cents each! So I ended up paying $1.60 for all of these instead of $6.

201307pickups2.jpg

It's hard to tell, but there are 8 of those tall glasses in that picture. When everything is all put away and I can find my nice set of gold-rimmed crystal wine glasses, I'll take some good pictures of my bar. But for now, you can take a look at where all of my glasses will eventually be:

And finally, I also grabbed these board games for a total of $4.50:

201307pickups3.jpg

They're in need of some cleaning, but I think I got a good price for them. All in all, I'm pretty happy with my finds. I even grabbed a couple of toys and a Winnie The Pooh mirror for my kid, as well as a cord that will fit my tape rewinder.

Damn thing looks and feels like a cheap Chinese clone console, but it's still a cool addition to my collection of useless consoles alongside the Satellaview :P

I love how they advertise the CN coins so prominently on a console that doesn't have internet enabled, cuts out most of the interesting rewards.  Unless Canada has a different set of rewards that I don't know about.  Still cool though, I wouldn't mind having one.

Just got this in the mail. Stoked to get it hooked up and try it out. Was lucky enough to have gone ahead and purchased when could still get 3 months of netflix for free, basically made the cost 15 bucks for this little wonder.


I'm gonna admit that I'm an anal bastard

I got more stuff this month (more like these past two weeks). I am going to post those pick ups in the Craigslist/Garage sale finds threads since I am trying not to make this post to long.

 

9390466318_b588f9271e_z.jpg
 

All this was trades from a fellow collector. Traded a PS2 slim SNES and a few games. The SNES game is Cybernator. The Game Boy games are TMNT Fall of the Foot Clan and Godzilla

 

9387616133_64879562ab_z.jpg
 

Once again used some trade fodder to bring my out of pocket total down to $70. I really wish that Gamecube had some kind of special edition markings or something.

 

9387653005_1d382e5488_z.jpg
 

My girlfriend's pick up.

 

I hope August will be as good as late July was for me.

NHK is awesome one of my favourites. Still trying to get #7 manga its so hard to find now..


I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.
