Some pics for this thread. 1. VGM box. 2. Facebook Marketplace-$100, PS2 stuff, Top 2 rows are complete, bottom 2 rows are missing booklets. 2 are discs only in Gamestop cases. 3. Apparently I did guess how many MD bottles were in the Super Bowl commercial.... I just wasn't the 1st person to say it! MD Twitter sent me this for my "Can Dew Attitude". 4. When your sister has 2 boys who get Happy Meals.... but they're too young for Pokémon cards! 5. Facebook Marketplace- $220, should have offered less. Needed consoles to make Ebay bundles though. Everything needed opened and cleaned. Had to remove the NES10 chip to finally get a game to boot. Most of the metal inside the N64 and the power supply had serious rust. SHOCKED IT ACTUALLY BOOTED UP after cleaning! I think it needs a new power switch so I ordered one on Ebay. 6. Facebook Marketplace as well- $225. I seriously think only the plastic bags are missing. It all appears to be here and in much better shape than the other stuff! These are both keepers for now.

Pic 1- VGM Box. Pic 2- Gamecube disc adapter for my works disc buffer. SNES games from local store. Switch games from Best Buy.

 

Pic 3- Facebook Marketplace- traded a Monster Hunter Switch. This was honestly the best offer I got. Had someone offer a modded Wii, someone offered a used SNES Classic and a GBA, plenty of offers with last gen stuff........NO THANKS! One guy sent me a pic with 4 N64s, 8 controllers, and like 15 games and I was like "yeah thats what im looking for!"..........then he said he would need $700 on top of the sealed MH Switch! Another guy sent some pics- ice blue N64 console only, NES with cables and controller, 6 boxed NES games, boxed Japanese yellow N64 controller. Asked if he had a Gamecube or 2 he could throw in.....he says "I WOULDNT EVEN TRADE YOU EVERYTHING PICTURED FOR THE SWITCH. I WAS JUST SHOWING YOU SOME OF THE STUFF I HAVE! THAT MARIO 3 COULD BE GRADED!". Okay.....go get it graded then! I wasnt looking to even trade with other resellers. I was looking for someone whose kids wanted a Switch but mom/dad didnt have the cash but might have a tub of old games in a closet somewhere that they would trade to me. Saw people on Youtube getting amazing trades for Switches and I thought Id give it a try. Not sure if ill be doing that again, it was frustrating honestly.

Wow im way behind. I think Ill do 2 or 3 posts to space things out.

 

Lego Bonsai tree from Lego Store, solderless LCD screen for an Atari Lynx, NES pin connectors and booklets from Ebay. N64 shirt from Hot Topic, mod kit for my Razer Panthera fight stick so I can use it on more than a PS3/4. No Cut prints for my N64s I'm getting modded. Got all these PS2 and GBA games for $400 on Facebook Marketplace. First 2 pics are complete games. 3rd pic is no booklets. Last pics are the rest.

Round 3!

 

Mario Kart lamp was $21 shipped from Target. Definitely goes with the room much better than the antiquey white lamp I had. PS3 games- $50 from "Craigslist Scott". Dude goes to yard sales and I buy from him. Top 15 games are complete. Doom 64s from Best Buy. Blue Everdrive64 from StoneAgeGamer. Xbox360 stuff, Wii stuff, and Pokémon Leaf Green was $150 from FB Marketplace. Nothing has been cleaned or tested yet besides Pokémon. That's half my $ back right there. And a decent Video Games Monthly box.

Craigslist Scott- $10 for the knockoff "SNES" mini. Actually has a bunch of NES roms and hacks on it. GBA/DS stuff was $50 from FB guy. He found it all in a burned up house he was cleaning. GBASP actually looks and works fine, got new shells and had to clean all the games really well. Only one I couldnt get to work was Donkey Kong Country 2 for GBA. GBA- Yoshis Island, Cartoon Network Speedway, Ed Edd n Eddy Jawbreakers, Donkey Kong Country, and Shrek 2. DS games- Dora Saves The Mermaids, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grade Back To School, SpongeBob Atlantis Squarepantis, Hot Wheels Beat That, Diddy Kong Racing, Dora Saves The Snow Princess, ATV/Monster Truck DS. 3DS game- New Super Mario Bros 2. Local gamestore- X360 charge kit, like new Pinobee, and a GBASP battery for like $2 after using my credit from trading in DVDs I got for cheap at the thrifts. Bought a Hybrid2 disc buffer so I dont have to constantly use the one at work, it works sooo good! Found a usb cable, some Bugs Life McDonalds toys (new in box), and a fish flashlight in a free bin at a yardsale. And finally a new PS5 game to play!

Looks good, not much bad driving in it either like sliding on TMS envs

Did you mean with the support of players from the French TrackMania community?

Facebook, $70- silver PS2 Slim, composite cable, red extension cable, 5 working Dualshock2s, Harvest Moon Save The Homeland disc only, Xbox360 headset, black Wii nunchuk, and 2 Rock Candy controllers. There were 3 other PS2 controllers but I couldnt fix them. He's still looking for the ac adapter for the PS2. It works fine though. Divoom Ditoo Bluetooth Pixel speaker. Olive Nikes. Also got the PS5 Nikes but I'm not sure if I'll keep them. Not as cool as the previous PlayStations. In a Target product review group- bike trunk rack, towel, shower curtain! Bought a PS2 slim ac adapter so I could get it listed on Ebay. Mario Gold and pinset from GS.

Zelda stuff from Best Buy. Games- $106 at one of those "Flea Market" stores where people setup booths. Most of the game stuff I saw was Ebay priced or just plain stupid priced like $15 SNES sports games! Mountain Dew Cake Smash 6 packs from the Dew Store and Super Blood Hockey from Premium Games. 3 Xbox360 games were $1 apiece at a church sale. Last pic- $20 from Facebook Marketplace. Middle row doesn't have any discs.

Wii U with pro controller, gamepad, stands, sensor bar, 2 Wii games, and Pro controller usb cable. 4 GBA games. 2 GBC games. Xbox 360 controller, no battery cover. 3 DS styluses. PS3 Slim. I think this was about $90 total from FB Marketplace. PS3 works great after a factory reset. The Gamepad needed a new screen but the replacement also appears to be Fd up. Dont think it's the motherboard because everything else works. Contacted the Ebay seller about it. Hope I can get another sent my way.

 

SNES games were Buy 3 Get 1 Free at the local game store. Turns out they still averaged out around Ebay price! Oh well. R-Type II was from Ebay, needed some TG16 games for my upcoming Polymega.

Clips broke on my old 50ft Cat6 cable so I got me a nice 50ft braided Cat8 ethernet cable from Amazon. VGM had a "30 for $30" flash sale on Facebook, box of Xbox games was $46 after shipping. Yeah mostly sports but also mostly complete so $1.54 apiece isnt terrible. Newegg- heatsink for the SSD I cant even install into my PS5 yet and a 1TB SSD for the Polymega I dont have yet! PS1 games from local gamestore- $147, DBZ is sealed. Kiss pinball doesn't have the plastic but it has the top seal sticker. Chronicles Of The Sword said "new" but it had no seal, everything looks mint. The rest are all opened and complete. "Fleamarket" store- $42. Jak 3, Midnight Club, TMNT, THPS2, Kirby Superstar Ultra, Mario Kart stylus, and 2 Blowpops. Gamestore- $8. Xbox microphone. And a clear replacement SNES shell from Retro Game Restore.

Ohhh you thought I was done?! Pt 2- Finally replaced the Apple Airport Extreme Ive been using since I got it at GW years ago, Nighthawk XR500 router. Video game books, "birthday" cd from the local game store that I forgot to get on my actual bday, No More Heroes 3, Sega Saturn av cable, clear DS game shells, Atari 2600 ac adapter, remote for my Goodwill Bose speaker, ink for my thrift store Lexmark, X1 ac adapter. The console accessories are for consoles I got in a $500 Facebook pickup, still cleaning and testing so no pics yet. PS2 and Xbox 360 games from "Craigslist Scott". He actually goes out and yardsales like I plan on doing on Saturdays but rarely do! So he probably got these for $20! I gave him $60. Most are complete.

GameBoy bundle was $260, they wanted $300. Still some room to flip if I decide to, Pokemon is hot right now (is it ever not hot though?!).

Blu-ray was from Best Buy. PS1 capacitor kit from Console5. And a conductive ink pen from Amazon, seeing if I can draw the traces back in a Intellivision controller. Flamin Hot Mountain Dew. Video Games Monthly box.
