I just bought a sealed copy of Iron Soldier and to my dismay I found it was completely empty and devoid of a circuit board. Was this an uncommon factory defect or was I duped? It looks completely legit otherwise like all the other NOS Jag games Ive purchased: old hangtab under the seal, guide ad and Jag club mailer, manual, real overlay, etc. Doesnt seem worth the trouble for $30 if it was intentional and the seller offered a refund without me needing to send it back. Maybe this is rare and valuable
It's about as rare and valuable as an OPENED / non-working Iron Soldier cart for the Atari Jaguar... lol.
Yeah, that's bad luck. This is a pretty big screw-up I think... not as bad as broken 5200 joysticks... but still. Pretty uncommon.

Go figure, I wait years to pull the trigger on this game and win the 1 in 10,000 worthless empty cart lottery

....or maybe the seller wanted to stay under the radar with a cheap price assuming nobody would open a sealed copy of anything marked Jaguar ...
more likely though just bad luck.

For about 45% of the Jaguar's library of cartridge games, leaving the PCB out of the cartridge is actually an improvement. Iron Soldier is not one of those, however.
@save2600, strangely I feel the empty cart is a more satisfying failure

This thread made me laugh multiple times good stuff.
At least it was a more common game OP. Keep box & manual, order cart only off ebay.
