Just now getting around to getting the rest of my weekend finds up.

 

Friday at lunch, hit up a neighborhood sale:

 

Gamepark GP32 (original non-backlit) Complete in box with 128mb Smart Media card - $5

Seems to work ok, haven't had time to mess around with it, and there weren't any games on the card.

 

Colecovision system, Atari expansion module, 11 CV games, 23 2600 commons. - $35

Once I cleaned the power switch, works great. Lots of manuals I needed too. Highlight of the set: CV Spyhunter with manual! First CV system I've seen in the wild in years.

 

Snes complete system, 2 SNES games, and a handful of NES games (including SMB 3) and controllers - $5 for the lot

 

Also picked up a Linksys 5 port switch for $3

 

Sunday went to a flea market and flea market, nothing worthwhile game related, but I did pick up some vintage Star Trek items!

 

1977 Mego Star Trek Phaser pistol (actually part of a game) $10

Classic Trek Communicator replica - origin unknown, but at least a couple of decades old! Very strange, seems to be hand made with some off the shelf parts as well as custom parts. I love this kind of stuff, someone really put a lot of craftsmanship into this. $8 :)

I've always wished someone would make a cell phone that looks like the old Star Trek communicators, how awesome would it be to whip it out to take a call?

yeah that's a nice snes lot for the wild, some decently uncommon stuff.

 

Don't expect much from super double dragon, though. BLEH

Yea I was hoping it would be better then the Double Dragon tournament fighter I had back in the day, sadly it wasn't. Sparkster turned out to be awesome though.

Not too shabby for just under 20 bucks!! Been awhile, so I was pretty excited to find some of these titles at the local thrift. :D

 

Been needing another Vader considering I sold my other one awhile back. Hopefully this one works.

One garage sale had a pink Nintendo DS with 2 games (Super Mario 64 DS and Kingdom Hearts) for $60. I asked if she would sell it for $40. She said no, so I passed on that.

 

She also had a N64 with 2 memory cards and about 12 games for $40, but she would sell the games for $3 each. So I bout one of the memory cards for $1 and these games:

 

Banjo-Kazooie

Banjo-Tooie

Gex 3: Deep Cover Gecko

Quest 64

Glover

Donkey Kong 64

See what happens when you are greedy... they deserved to be cherry picked :evil: They could have probably gotten $50 for everything, but noo, they wanna keep the systems and a hand full of crappy games, that they will trade in for $12.50 at Gamestop the next time their little precious wants a 3DS for $200.

I just received a lot of games I purchased...I was holding my breath, waiting for the package to arrive. I saw this mess of consoles, wires and games on ebay. I guess no one else recognized what was in there, as I got the whole lot for under $100. Maybe you can notice what I did in the photos:

It was hidden in there pretty well, but when I saw that Rescue Terra....icon_lust.gif

 

Bonus was that all of the items included in the lot work perfectly. I've had an NES clone for a while, but always wanted to get an original console for my game room.

Very nice! You could throw the rest on Craigslist and probably get most of your money back. :thumbsup:

Looks like a nice label too. For a title that generally doesn't have a nice label... I've been wanting one of those in the box for a few years now. One day.

Yes! I salute your ebay pouncing. I have had a little luck with the CV/2600 confusion; got a 2600 montezuma's revenge for 8 bucks a few years back and a CV river raid for 3 bucks; but otherwise I have never got any real deals on ye bay.

Captain Novolin was $2 at the same swap.

 

PS1 Bust A Move 4 was $.95 at a thrift.

Felling lethargic due to high blood sugar?

 

Why not Poke yourself man? Perhaps with a little Novolin!?

 

Then you can Bust a Move!

 

:D
