#14391791 Official Collector's Edition Compilation XII - 2021

Posted by georox on 19 April 2021 - 03:29 PM

Did people actually like Legend of Mana that much, where SE saw enough demand to re-release it? Not trying to hate, it's just that it's not a game I see mentioned whenever any time people talk about "best RPGs of Y" type situations.

 

Outside of the mainstream ones (FF), it just seems like there are so many other RPGS that received way more praise than Legend of Mana. I mean, I'd murder all of you for a Xenogears, Chrono Trigger/Cross, Vagrant Story, or Terranigma remaster. For LOM, I would maybe consider buying it when it's (or if) $15 physical. 

Legend of Mana is one of my absolute favorite games of all time, and my comfort game whenever I'm in the hospital (which is too often) so having it on Switch is great, because I don't need to figure out where my PSP is now. Granted, SaGa Frontier getting the re-release is also good, it's my backup hospital game :D I haven't ordered LoM yet, but I plan on it next month... did SaGa this month, have to break up cash being spent.

Nabbed Ectotron, found the headmasters (Grabbed the case right off the pallet, wasn't messing around.) Got Trypticon for under MSRP on eBay, and wow I have a lot of these suddenly. I need them to reissue fortmax and metroplex now :D

My Sentai order got divided up due to one of the items being on backorder. I got the first shipment awhile back, but now the second one I got the shipping notification for today.

 

I also have a Rightstuf order still in limbo, but I had some pre-order items as a part of that and I'm guessing they felt it was cheaper to just wait.

Yea, my season 1 of Food Wars finally arrived a few days ago since it was on backorder, even though when I placed the order it was in stock. Still, everything arrived so it's all good :D

Quintesson Pit, you've been able to preorder for their additional stock for ages. First time they had it up it lasted over an hour. No clue on the medic 2-pack, I put my order in about 2 minutes after it went live initially.

 

Found Bumblebee, Soundwave STILL hasn't shipped, I hate Walmart.

Posted by georox on 05 December 2020 - 06:17 PM

I've been saying this (much less eloquently) for years. For every Earthbound there are hundreds, if not thousands, of games below their MSRP. It's an incredibly volatile market that nobody hoping to prosper really has any control over. All this word salad to say - I wholeheartedly agree.

EarthBound isn't even that rare, it's an artificial scarcity to jump prices up. Game hit super clearance back in the day and a lot of copies were produced, the problem is most are in the hands of resellers who know they'll sucker someone out of their money. Same with New Mutants 98 (First Deadpool comic) it is NOT a rare book, I know some people with 20+ copies because they were rotting in back issue bins for ages... but due to him gaining popularity, people realized they could jack the price up and someone would (eventually) pay it.

I got my judge from the Quintesson Pit set, and I found 2 regular Allicons to go with him in the wild :D WM hasn't had the second wave of their exclusives here.. well, not the Voyagers anyways, found Elita-1 in store, haven't found Bumblebee yet, and no clue when or IF my Walmart order of him + Soundwave will ship. My BttF and Medic 2-pack arrived yesterday.

Never been to one of those but yeah you could have made a killing possibly.  I still remember picking up suikoden 2 for 4$ new and sealed at a local family video game store that was going out of business. I used to rent and buy games from them a lot so it was a pretty sad thing to see them go.  Especially since they rented much cheaper than block buster at the time. (this was before it blew up price wise on ebay) and I flipped it for 8$ after playing it and not liking it as a little kid at a record exchange.  Oh how stupid I felt 2 or so years later when it went for 200+ on ebay.

We had a family owned store here close when I was a kid... *all* games were $5. Console didn't matter, how old or new didn't matter... all 5. I bought almost every PS1 RPG they had... well, my grandmother did for me :D I played them all, and managed to get a TON of credit at EB Games eventually... some big hitters were in the stuff.. I wish I kept em though since they're worth a lot more now ._. Ah well. I think I traded in Suikoden 2 at Babbages and got $40 for it...

Sentai still has good deals if you're patient enough... but yeah. Honestly though, beats paying 30 bucks for a VHS tape with two episodes.




#14340419 Amazon Warehouse Deals Thread XVIII

Saw a Wargreymon Amplified Model Kit pop up for $39 and said was acceptable with just some damage to the box. Was hopeful since at the time new ones were listed for about $75 and on average are like $50-70 on other sites.

 

Came in and the box looked like someone was in a fist fight with it. Opened it up and everything seemed legit and still sealed. Then noticed one of the packages despite being sealed was missing like half of the parts. And literally the most important parts too, the head piece, and both of the arm joints.

 

Was moreso curious of how the hell someone managed to do that and seal it back so perfectly. But when I contacted Amazon they just told me to keep it and gave a full refund. A new one ended up popping up for $45 under Prime as a pre-order, so I'm happy

In the future on these, check Hot Topic/Box Lunch, they've been stocking em and constantly run 30% off sales. :)

I imagine updated ones will cost more too... I mean, they've all climbed up in price since wave 1... I'm fine with my Final Fight I paid 125 or so for :D
