  1. Flea market finds today...




    Xbox Guy Game and PS2 Ghost in the Shell were $4 each. PS1 Spider and Reloaded were $2 each. Star Ocean Second Story was $3; unfortunately the discs have Hollywood Video stickers on them. BTW, is this 2 CD slimcase version an official release, or is Hollywood Video's doing?




    Criterion Two Lane Blacktop DVD-$2

    Electric Company Book-$1. It's kind of an academic outline of what the show was going to be about and how it was going to teach, filled with pictures and B&W animation stills from 5 test programs made during the summer of 1971.




    2 shrinkwrapped copies of StarTropics-$4 each. They both have wear around the edges; one of them has a couple of tears in the shrinkwrap.

  2. First finds of the year...




    GameCube Worms 3D, X-Men Legends II, Harvest Moon: Another Wonderful Life and PS2 FF VII Dirge of Cerberus-$5.99 each at Goodwill.




    GameCube Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness (missing manual), LOZ: Collector's Edition were $4.99 each at Salvation Army. PS2 Klonoa 2 was a different SA find for $2.99.




    These were $1 each at a hole in the wall thrift. I presume they are (p)review copies; the discs look like standard PC releases. EDIT: A friendly fellow at DP informed me these were part of an official release.

  3. I'm lucky to have a good amount of thrifts around where I live (there's a Goodwill, SA and 2 independent thrifts within 2 blocks of each other on Artesia in Redondo Beach) plus on the way to work. There's just a lot of crap in Southern California. :) Speaking of...




    These were courtesy of an Out of the Closet thrift. The Dark Eye is shrinkwrapped, and the seals are still intact on Alice, though there is a bit of wear on the sides. $5 each.

  4. All items on hold for now. Thank you!



    All of the items are available for $5, not including shipping. They have been tested and work fine. Happy holidays!



    Bomberman World (w/ beat up manual, cover page loose but all pages intact, rental sticker on cover in a Crash Bandicoot: Warped case)

    Jampack Vol. 2 (complete)

    Spyro: Year of the Dragon (in a Spyro The Dragon case with a Spyro The Dragon manual)



    Power Stone (missing manual)


    Sega CD-

    Night Trap (discs only)



    Virtua Fighter Remix (complete)



    Mr Do! (loose)



    The Three Stooges (loose)

  5. My girlfriend gifted us for our anniversary with an overnight weekend trip to Ventura. I am very lucky to be with her in many ways, including the fact that she doesn't mind hitting thrift stores, which we did in Ventura, Oxnard and Santa Barbara. :)




    These were various Goodwill finds: the Xbox Star Wars games were $1 each, PS1 Rampage Through Time was $.75 (that Goodwill was having a 50% off sale). PS2 Mister Mosquito was $3.99 and DC Resident Evil 2 was $2.99.





    More Goodwill...this one was also having 50% off everything so Final Fantasy II, FF III, Secret of Evermore and Donkey Kong Country 2 ended being $1.99 each.





    PS2 Suikoden III was $4.99 and PS1 Aquanaut's Holiday was $4.95 at hole in the wall thrifts.





    This was the last find heading home, at a St. Vincent de Paul thrift in Oxnard. I found the case on a shelf with the manual and the map sitting under it. No disc to be found. I was going to buy it anyway, but decided to check the CD area that I had scanned before just in case. There was a pile of 3 loose discs that I hadn't looked through before and I figured what were the odds. Turned out the odds were pretty good. :) Paid a grand total of $.99.

    PS2 Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater NFR demo disc was $1.99 at a Salvation Army. U2 Zoo TV Live (2 CD fan-club set, complete and in great shape) was $2.99 at Goodwill. Grandia II is case and soundtrack CD only; it and the discs-only Night Trap cost $6.30 after 30% off sale at a different Salvation Army. That SA also had a tragically disc-less PS1 Digimon World 2.

    Crazy Climber handheld was $7 at a swap and works great. The Neverhood was $1 at an Out of the Closet thrift.




    $.99 at a Goodwill; I like the song and the Space Duel action is a nice bonus.



    It was nice to be able to pass up 2 separate small 2600 commons lots in the same day. Also passed up a boxed (w/ styrofoam) Colecovision with Donkey Kong but without a power supply for $19.99. It was at the Gardena Goodwill between the 110 and the Hustler Casino, so good luck!

  8. Yes, it is complete. Yes, it works. Yes, it was $3.99. Yes, I had a heart attack and fell over as soon as I saw it. $4.27 with tax!


    And I thought the complete one I found years ago for $10 was a good deal...nice!
