  1. Prices are in Canadian dollars. Bulk offers are welcome. Shipping quote with Zip/Postal Code. Local pick up is also available in and around Montreal! I snagged 31 factory sealed Advance Guardian Heroes from a store that closed down. If they look like re-seals it’s because they have an outer sleeve with french text and a french manual which was shrink wrapped OVER the factory sealed game. Because Canada lol. I opened one to verify this. See the pic for the H-seam on the one I unwrapped. Not every box is guaranteed to be a 9.5+ once unwrapped since they sat on shelves all this time, and I’m not going to open them to check lol. Asking 55$ shipped. 40$ for extra copies if you want. Bulk deal also available.
  2. Need to calculate shipping. How much does an Atari game in box weigh?

      I don't know about Atari 2600 games in general, but still shrink wrapped Draconian weighs 138 gram = 4.9 oz without padding.

      I'm ignorant on this type stuff, but also keep in mind if this is the case, International shipping is REALLY expensive right now-I'm in Tennessee, USA, it was going to cost me over 20USD to send a friend in Mexico City a Mario Kart DKjr Hot Wheels car, and a friend was looking into shipping me a(nother) Intellivision from Canada, he said shipping had doubled since just a year or so ago.

      Nope.

      with collector's items, you have to account for packaging and the weight of an additional box, because if the original box gets creased/damaged the buyer can get their money back.

  4. Hello. You have a couple items I'd really like. Consider shipping to Canada? I'm a reputable citizen, I'd pay for the full shipping cost. PM me if you think you could manage.
  5. I'll go against the current here and claim that LRG and their imitators are the gaming equivalent of Beanie Babies. I could be wrong, but if companies are purposedly creating a niche market and "restrict" access to their products today, there won't be as many people looking for them in the future.
  6. You're super kind to be looking out for me. I saw those and I do have a WTB thread on NA. The one on top has the wrong cart, so the overall value is not justified at all. Basically it's a loose "non-anime" in a "anime" box. Luckily I found a more interesting listing. Missing the manual but I can piece it out later.
  7. Hello. Looking to purchase both variants of Gun.Smoke on NES, CIB or CB. Priority is the "anime" cover art since that's the one that drew me in as a kid. Also looking for some CIB, CB, IB or just B black box games (variants don't matter): CIB 10-Yard Fight CIB Balloon Fight CIB Baseball CIB Donkey Kong CIB Donkey Kong 3 CIB Donkey Kong Jr CIB Donkey Kong Jr Math CIB Duck Hunt CIB Excitebike CIB Golf CIB Gumshoe CIB Gyromite CIB Hogan's Alley CIB Ice Climber CIB Kung Fu CIB Mach Rider CIB Popeye CIB Soccer CIB Stack Up CIB Mario Bros CIB Tennis CIB Urban Champion CIB Wild Gunman CIB Wrecking Crew
  8. As with the NES, there's a generational thing going on. The thing was most commonly referred to as "The Atari" the same way my parents/grand-parents later called everything a Nintendo, so you know that was a huge mainstream culture impact right there. It became folkloric. It's also from a sex, drugs and rock n'roll era for videogames, giving it that little extra stylish edge. And I cannot overstate that the hardware limitations lead to a lot of experimentation and creativity, which serves to deliver truckloads of shine and charm to games of that pre-corporate period. Epicness and realism have long taken over but surely now that we are past the point of blindly tunneling forward technologically, most people realize that modern high tech games CAN co-exist with experiences developped with more modest means. Thus pixel art has made a triumphant return, indie games are popping everywhere and homebrew devs keep working on pushing out games for systems they love such as The Atari and the NES, to name these 2.
  9. ReallY? o.o Tough sale without the long boxes, yeah. On the other hand, actually complete copies are pretty expensive these days. What do you have?
  10. I played it on NES. I out-capitalismized the others to hell. And then 12 months are over and the game ended and I was never sure wether I had won or not. If the goal is to be the richest at the end of the cycle, then I won all the games lol if not, then I failed miserably.
