It is showing up at msrp on their website now. I thought it was a price drop - rather than a sale.

Nice work OP. Thanks for the gc, but also for sharing your work. I enjoyed the graphic novel as well.

Does anyone know if the mechromancer pre-order bonus is included with the pre-order at Newegg? I'd like to preorder from them but only if this is included.

I was at KB Toys around 1997 or 1998 and they had a brand new Virtual Boy system for $20 or $30. I didn't have enough money with me and when I went back a few days later it was of course gone.
.


There have been many and I have benefited by buying many before they became rare as well, but one of my big ones was at KB Toys as well in the same time period - maybe a year or two earlier.
In their little clearance bins in the middle of the store were tons of brand new NES games for $5. Of them I bought the original Final Fantasy since I hadn't played it but had played all the SNES ones at the time. What I wish I did was purchase all the Final Fantasy copies. There were probably 12-15 there. Having that many sealed would have been pretty amazing.

Also - at my local mom and pop electronics store that is now out of business they had a sealed copy of Secret of Mana sitting on the shelf until they finally closed in the early 2000s. It always had a big sticker on it for $49. I wish I had ponied up the cash then, but I already had a copy. Oh the foresight to buy it and leave it sealed.
