Got off early and found me a brand new/sealed Jurassic Park World Zoomer Dino Collectible Robotic Edition for $15.  I think it was one of the hottest toys to get for christmas 2015. I'm still debating if I should give it to nephew this xmas or add it to my collection.

The Dark Knight Rises Blu/DVD/UV seeeeeealed for $2.99.

 

The Hobbit 3D Blu/Blu/DVD/UV opened for $2.99. (for my nephew)

 

Gaming wise I let everything sit ...a copy of Madden 96 for the Genesis in the box, some DS games (mostly girly stuff), two PS2 controllers, Tony Hawk Shred for Wii and some PS2 title that I've forgotten the name of in the past 4 hours.

Picked up a book, a TV antenna, an owl figurine (I collect them), a UNM Lobos T-Shirt and a 10-pk of DVD+R discs. As far as gaming related items I found a copy of Dead or Alive 3 for the OG Xbox. It is CIB and the disc doesn't look too bad.


I'm just trying to keep it together over here...

My son is starring in a local production of Aladdin as Aladdin and I visited the local Sally's looking for a cheap copy of the movie soundtrack... and actually found a copy. CDs were $0.50 each. 50df8ac8917fc7a255761333b0ea2b8f.jpg

Found some cool stuff at GW the other day. $1 for the PS2 Slim ac adapter, missing the power cord but I think I have extras. Games were $3 apiece- Soul Blade PS1 Greatest Hits no manual, Chocobos Dungeon 2 PS1 Black Label no manual, and a complete copy of the 2 disc Sonic Adventures for Dreamcast

One of our locally owned thrift stores is going out of business. Ended up getting a used Mountain bike wheel and a few xbox games for $2.50 a piece
Black
Max Payne 2
Timesplitters 2
Just cause

All games I either wanted to play for the first time or play again. Left a couple hundred other games and might go back tomorrow for their last day of business

Never thought I would ever find a copy of Granstream Saga in the wild. Had a lot of fond memories playing it back in high school.

Someone donated quite a few PS1,PS2, PS3, 360, PC, and Wii games to the local GW. Nothing I couldnt live without or flip worthy though. They had 3 white console only Wiis for $9 apiece, 2 were missing the Gamecube port covers. All looked pretty dirty and I just wasnt feeling cleaning/testing them tonite so I left them. Still pondering maybe picking them up. There was a filthy Wiimote for $3 and a baggie with 2 nunchuks for $2, one had the rubber grip peeled of the stick. .............just imagining how I couldve probably got these for real cheap had I gone yardsale'n last weekened and asked for games, bet they were set out at one!

Nice score on Sonic Adventures. If I were you, I would test it out to make sure it works.

 

About 5 years ago my goodwill had like 22 copies of Sonic Adventures DC. This Goodwill was located about 3 miles from Konami headquarter so I assumed these were donated by them. All sealed and brand new. I bought 7 copies at $5.99 each, ones without crack on the jewel case. I ended up selling 1 on Amazon and another to a CAGer to cover my costs for them. My plan was to to keep 2 for collection purposes and flip the other 3 in the near future for major profits. Just say I got a message a week later from the CAG member & Amazon customer saying the game is defective. I was like "WTF" so I opened a copy and tested it on my dreamcast and the game wouldn't load at all. I was like how Konami knows it's defective. Well I ended up refunded the buyers and told the buyers to keep the game. I was going to return the rest to GW for store credit but the manager wouldn't do it because of their 7 days return policy.  I think I sold the 5 copies (4 sealed, 1 opened) to a CAG members.

So far I've found NES Super Mario 2 & 3 along with Zelda at the Goodwill Outlet. Never see shit like this in the retail store. Crazy.

Trust me, I was as surprised as anyone! Oldest games I've seen there were some N64 sports games. I think the other guy who comes in to check for games must be taking some time off.

Savers these days tends to over price video game stuff by a HUGE margin.

Rather unfortunate. I was going to head over to Savers when I was in Tucson tomorrow. Maybe there's not much point in doing so.

Sometimes you can catch them slipping on stuff, but it just takes the right (wrong) pricing team to over price something.  Its a crapshoot but sometimes worth it to check out anyhow.

I got a sealed NES game for 50 cents when my savers opened. Those were the days. If I knew how to upload pics to cag, I would post it. Damn you photobucket!

Slowdive; I have been keeping quiet but I think it's time to stop that. I run a FAQ for RPGamer's board that has a pic hosting list. Here's the direct link to the list.. I hope you can find a solution on there. Oh and don't click the last link that says something about click to close window; It'll close your browser since on the page, that comes up in a pop up window when you click a link. ^^

a store that usually overprices their games had some sega master games loose for above ebay. looks like they are starting to learn how to price games. they lowered the master system games to $3 each after a few months so i had to clean them out.

Daaamn. Nice catch on the GBA games. I mean, everything there is good, but that's easily the best imo.

Falling behind....

 

Sony speakers were $3 apiece, PS2 with SW Episode V inside was $8, Onyko TX-SR604 was $15, DS2 controller was $3, Performance controller was $2, Smartab and charger were $35 but its locked to a Gmail account so its probably going back, and the DSi with a DS Lite charger was $10.50
