  1. Agreed. I'm tempted to grab them, not for myself or to sell, but to mail as a gift to an action figure Youtuber that I watch, as a way of contributing to his show. If anyone knows what to do with them, it would be that guy.
  2. https://store.steampowered.com/app/346850/Chips_Challenge_1/ Chip's Challenge 1, the PC DOS port, is free right now on Steam.
  3. I kinda wish I had grabbed that router and the Echo, especially the Echo; I just learned that that "Skyrim Very Special Edition" "joke" was an actual product, and now I wanna test it out...
  4. Hmm. those look rather cool. Not sure if the pull string that's broken can be fixed, but I hope it can be.
  5. I dunno, I heard that Atari's competitors bribed the developers for Donkey Kong to exclusively gimp the 2600 version, to keep them from gaining the upper hand in the then-to-be-short-lived 2-Bit console wars. Someone recently has tried making a superior port of Donkey Kong onto the 2600, and, well... just look for yourself:
  6. I'm still shocked at how much better games like Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and Burgertime were on the TI-99/4A than on the Atari 2600. It's like Atari wasn't even trying with that console...
  7. That is true, sadly. It's a risk, either way, but appealing to the people who you think would be more likely to buy it for its collector's value or nostalgia makes finding the right person a bit easier. I remember trying to sell figures my boyfriend and I had of a specific offshoot line to Lanard Toys' The Corps on ebay, thinking they wouldn't be worth much, and someone who literally spends his time collecting those specific figures for a museum for the line bought them all, so from then on, I learned to try to research and then advertise what I had more, to appeal to more specific people.
  8. I know this, and I'm not trying to suggest that you should sell any future stuff you decide to put on here. You're being very generous with this, and I'm sure everyone appreciates it. I think, like with the General Lee finger racer, I'm implying that you should do some research into future stuff you decide to give out, to see if it's particularly rare or collectable, so you can advertise that and be more certain to be able to find someone who would truly want it for their own personal collection, instead of just grabbing it in order to cash in on your generosity. For instance, your first item, the near-complete original Voltron figure, is really collectible and expensive on Ebay, so it isn't surprising that so many people were interested in it, but the Gobots you gave out, later on, or the Animated Spider Man figures would've been a hard "sell", if someone didn't recognize them. Also, not saying you're not doing enough research on them, so sorry about that. On that note, https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vtg-Figure-Lido-4-LAVA-MONSTER-Galaxy-Warriors-die-cast-Woolworths-KO-He-Man/283988944784?epid=10035964335&hash=item421f0f6790:g:ZMUAAOSwM8xfQ88M This seems to be the figure that you posted up, the green die-cast one. Rather strange action figure line. Seems like the line is fairly rare, with some accessories (like shields) going up to the $50 range, so if anyone is a collector of odd knock-off figures like this, or has an attachment to the line (Galaxy Warriors), they would do well getting this from you.
  9. Ah, the Dukes of Hazard General Lee. Looking on ebay, it looks like, loose, that thing is going for a good $15-$20. Never heard of these things, before, but they seem fun.
  10. No problem. From the looks of it, the Spiderman is a Web Lair Kay-Bee Toys exclusive variant, which is kinda rare.
  11. Those three are from the Spiderman Animated Series from Fox. There's Black suit Spidey on the top right, Vulture on the bottom, and the top left is Alister Smythe.
  12. Damn, I don't have Twitch Prime...
  13. Gah! My package from Germany's been stuck in pre-customs for over a month, with no sign of moving, and the seller hasn't gotten word back from them about its status, so he's having to send me a full refund ($170+) to compensate. Ugh...
  14. This is rather interesting.
  15. http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/931-the-caffeine-machine/ Not a TI, but I thought you guys would find this interesting. It was featured in an issue of PC Gamer, I believe.
  16. Finally got a wifi dongle that works in Windows 10 and doesn't slow my computer to a crawl. Just got updated to Windows 10, so new gaming opportunities are here, yay!
  17. I heard the Kil-a-ton version is crazy expensive to get, second-hand. Is this true?
  18. No, I'm pretty sure it's legal issues with the licensing; it keeps switching hands and developers so many times, that it's impossible to really tell who has it, at any given time.
  19. I managed to get the Megaton edition and the World Tour version, back when they were available. I think the latter is still available, but the former isn't, due to legal issues. I also got an android app for the game, but because of the same legal issues, it was discontinued before I could unlock the other chapters in it, and my tablet is proving stubborn to root, so I could hack them in.
  20. I forgot what it was, but my boyfriend and I remember going to an antique store outside of town and finding a really old wooden pinball game. My boyfriend got to play it, and I think they were charging $150-$250 for it. I think it may have been a Flip Flop pinball game, I can't remember, now. But it was the oldest pinball game we've ever seen.
  21. I'm sure. And turns out, there was something akin to the character I was thinking of, a guy named. Dr. Terrence Thirteen, aka the Ghost Breaker, a supernatural investigator who swore to his dad to break a "curse" on his family that caused them to die accused of witchcraft for making scientific discoveries by busting supernatural events and encounters with science. At one point, John Constantine said that, because of Dr. Thirteen's intense skepticism, supernatural events (of the magic variety) simply don't work around him, but that was retconned when the DC New 52 reboot happened.
  22. Anyone here a Marvel or DC comic fan? If so, I'd like some help figuring out something: I vaguely recall reading online about a character from either continuity who thinks himself a normal human, but is so steeped in denial and skepticism about the fantastical events transpiring around him, that he literally exudes a reality-warping aura around him that makes those events cease to exist around him: in his presence, magic and advanced technology doesn't work, supernatural elements and beings (like gods, demons, ghosts, aliens, etc) don't exist, superpowered being are depowered and turned into normal creatures, etc. This effect goes away, after he does, but when he's around, even news coverage of the events are transformed so that they don't report it, at all. Is there such a character like that, in either universe, or am I simply misremembering something about either company?
  23. The artist said they sent it some sort of special priority which would normally get me it within the week, so...
