I hate to quote myself, but back on the topic of accessories with stickers...
I snagged a few PS2/PS3 wireless guitars last night and did some research on the best way to get the awful stickers off. Goo Gone, mineral spirits, gasoline, paint thinner, lighter fluid and naptha were all the names that came up when I was reading. I decided to give some lighter fluid a shot as it's cheap and easy to get at my local drug store.
Here's a little album...tools included were paper towels, some cotton cloth and a slightly overgrown thumbnail.
The full album is here. Took about 15 minutes and they look much better now. Hope this helps someone with their own collection or for their trade ins to Amazon.
That's crazy and weird. I've never heard of this trick. I am going to try it. Thank you.

Well DI had 29 characters, DI 2.0 had 32 and now so far DI 3.0 already has 34 fully announced characters. I recall them mentioning the two more Marvel characters (who will likely come with the playset) and then I would imagine there to be more than just two characters from the Force Awakens so maybe two more there as well which would bring the roster for 3.0 to 38. I cannot imagine them going higher than that really but who knows!

This is both relevant and enlightening. I'm picking up a couple of wireless guitars for cheap via craigslist tonight. They're both ripe with stickers. I was considering picking up some of this stuff to hopefully return them to their former glory.
Anybody have any success with this stuff?
Back on-topic...I've sent in my first Original Xbox Forza Bundle...it should be getting processed today. I'll report back with the results.
That looks promising. I'm curious about this as well. There are some mixed reviews on Amazon. I see it's made by goo gone. I'm concerned if it works, but I'm also very concerned how it smells. I'm extremely sensitive. The smell of Goo Gone makes me physically nauseous. It sucks.
Thank you. Atlus DS games seem to make such excellent trade fodder.

Thank you guys, but also at the same time you. I just spent $40 + tax to complete the collection (well... complete for the next 4 or so more days). I already had the Sulley crystal figure, but I just ordered the remaining six TRU exclusive crystal figures. I said I wouldn't do it, but I did it. Jack Sparrow and the Lone Ranger were only available at one store within driving distance. It was either get them now or wait for a price drop and pay for shipping. My hunch is they won't restock these old figures, but who knows. I could be wrong.
Son of a b...
And a year or two from now I'll probably be doing the same thing with every last Star Wars variant once they get around $6.66 a piece.

Sonic, I think as a group we have a ratio of more accepted than rejected for systems, though I've only done two to date, both of which were my personal systems. One was a GB Micro and the other was a $200 TIV fat PS2.
That's reassuring. I'm just pessimistically thinking the worst, so that I can be pleasantly surprised when they get accepted.
$200 TIV for a fat PS2! I just shat my pants!
Same here. That is an epic trade. If that one can go through as accepted that gives me a lot of hope.

For those trading the original xbox here is another option:Modded Original Xbox (Classic Gamers Dream) (LN) $124.19 (G) $110.39 (A) $93.83Rock Band 3 Wireless KeyboardRock Band Country Track Pack 2
Thank you. This is too funny. I just bought 2 more xboxs today. One for $25 and one for $10. The $10 looks like in the best shape out of all 4 that I currently have. I'll have to test these two to see if they even work. If any of them are already modded I am going to laugh. There were a couple more xboxs left and they were $19.95. I'm almost tempted to go back for more, but God knows they could all be rejected for some bogus reason.
Even if Amazon accepts these, my profit margin already took a hit. I bought 25 games for .99 cents a piece along with the consoles. I also managed to buy several guitars and a few mics (rockband, konami, and EA) that I can hopefully use for amazon trades on those weird bundles.
This was all from one pawn shop and one thrift store today.
Shit. I, too, will be sharing the same fate soon.
Modded Original Xbox (Classic Gamers Dream) (LN) $124.19 (G) $110.39 (A) $93.83
The (LN) value seems to have gone up. I could be mistaken, however. Mine were both (A) because I had no packaging to speak of.
I've snagged 3 more original Xbox systems local to me. A couple are going to Amazon Trade In / NorAm in the form of Xbox Forza Bundles...the other will probably get loaded up with CoinOps 7 Massive and sold. Been a busy bee past few weeks.
How much time and effort goes into loading that software? I don't have any experience with modding, but I can probably follow directions and get it done. Sorry if this talk is frowned upon here. Maybe it would be better spoken through PM.
At least at this point it's not taking any money out of the game publisher's pockets because most of the games are over a decade old and can only be obtained through 3rd parties (and scratched to hell).
If Amazon rejects any of these consoles, I might do some mods. This ghost casing looks pretty cool and I'm thinking I would like to give it a shot some day. http://www.amazon.co...d=IEURVELL56M8M
It's utterly pointless, but it also looks kind of fun. I've always liked taking stuff apart and putting it back together. I'm trying to figure out of any of these 4 xboxs have the Thompson drives which I think is required to see the cd spin through the case.

I've tried half a dozen times and never successfully traded a console in to Noram. They always get rejected. I'm going to give the xbox forza bundle a shot. I just one bought today at a pawn shop for $29.99. That's more than I wanted to spend but at least they gave me $2.50 each for a bunch of old crap blurays that I originally bought for $1. It's in very good condition and works well. It also came with 2 controllers and a copy of Halo inside the disc tray.
I have a copy of Forza Motorsport I recently got for free. It's surprisingly in mint condition. I was at GS at couple weeks ago and they had a bunch of old original xbox games in the trash. I guess someone was going to trade them in. GS doesn't accept original xbox games, so they just trashed them. I asked the GS employee if I could have them and he said "It's trash. Go ahead."
Wish me luck. It would be so cool to actually have a console accepted as a trade. If not I guess I'll have a "backup" xbox for my spare bedroom.

There's 3 pages of The Order premium edition AWD items, now I wish those would hit like $20 I want that statue. I already have this one but I wanted another haha.
We'll have to keep an eye on it. You might get lucky. I would assume it might randomly drop. I have the premioum edition from prime day, but missed out on the collector's edition. I'm so happy I checked this thread tonight.

With Best Buy 30% coming up on Sunday.. I'm hoping someone will update the best GS to BB credit transfer deals on Sunday. I still have $35 at GameStop I need to get over to Best Buy. Please help )
I'm looking right now. Hopefully there's something. I'm maxed out on Madden 15 and every single other credit mover that's been posted over the last 6 or so months.
