So hadn't been able to do a video in about a month, had some family issues and other things going on. Finally have one up,

so it's alot of stuff to go over. From thrifts, flea markets, garage sales, pretty much everywhere. If you guys have a chance, 

check out the video...

This pic all found at another Goodwill, all game .99 a piece, but Futurama and champions return to arms are missing manuals. I paid $3 for the Planet Robot wind up toy which had its windup key!

Damn, That Futurama Game on eBay is going for a good amount. I been looking for years for a decent copy at a good price but glad you found one. :)

yeah the last few weeks have been crazy, my phone has been completely crapping out, so photos and videos have been getting messed

up. I will start including pics again if my phone starts cooperating again

Did okay today. My Goodwill had a bunch of good stuff but for some reason decided to stick the whole stack of PS2/PS1 games they got into the case... they never do that with Playstation games. Mostly sports games, ha ha. They weren't THAT badly priced for the most part but a few were. I wouldn't have minded an extra Rogue Galaxy... but not for 19.99. They also had a Mario Sunshine for 24.99 and Champions of Norrath for 19.99... just not good thrift store prices. they had Pokemon Red for 19.99 also. I did grab:

 

Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition Remix (PS2) 3.99

Enter the Matrix (GC): 2.99

Earthworm Jim (GBA): 4.99

Ultimate Spider Man (GBA) 2.99

I found final fantasy 9 without a manual for 2 dollars. All 4 of the disks were there and in pretty good shape. Not a big rpg or FF fan but I figured it was a good deal.

Saw two more 360 Arcade units, this time for $20 each, but they were just the consoles, so who knows what shape they were in? As I'm currently unemployed, that's more of a gamble than I can take. Once upon a time, it was pretty safe to buy electronics at Goodwill. Anymore, people seem to have Goodwill confused with an eScrap place.

 

I did pick up an original Xbox for $6 and it seems all I need to do is plug in an A/V cable (flashing orange/green light.) Got From Russia with Love PS2 for $3 also and, unlike most disc based games I've found thrifting, this looked about new.

The Sims Complete Collection on PC - $2.24. Discs look great.

 

Also got Lego Star Wars II on PS2 for $.67, wasn't really interested but for that price I couldn't pass it up.

 

(Unusual pricing is thanks to student discount.)

Donated some things to Goodwill and decided to check things out.  I know Target donates unsold merchandise but did they really just donate 50+ copies of Metro Redux for the PS4?
