Congrats to you on completing the library! I'm not sure, but I think the Super Grafx might be, per capita, the most expensive library to complete.

Thanks. I'm pretty sure Neo Geo AES is the most expensive library to complete, though. Metal Slug and Neo Turf Masters both go for $20,000~$30,000 each or maybe even more, and the rest of the Metal Slugs are expensive as hell, too. Twinkle Star Sprites for AES is also really expensive.

I meant per capita...with only 5 games and all being around $500 and up. You're probably right tho all things Neo Geo being stupid expensive throws off the curve I'm sure. But Kudos to you nonetheless.

They're not that bad. SuperGrafx itself was 22000 yen, tax included. It was only the console, though, and no controllers, box, manual, or even cables. Battle Ace was around 2000 yen. Madou King Granzort was about 5000 yen. Daimakaimura was 10450 yen, tax included. Aldynes was around 15000 yen. 1941 Counter Attack was 64900 yen, tax included. You can find them for decent prices here aside from 1941 Counter Attack. Ebay prices are way higher than what they should be, sadly.

Both are in EA branded SNES clamshells for some unknown reason.

Are those labels printed? Looks nice.

Weird thing is the power converter we had bundled with it is a light grey Atari branded one I have never seen before. It says Made in Japan on it, unlike my other VCS power converter that says Made in Taiwan.

IIRC, grey one came with the heavy sixer?

Idk but if they are they are from high-rez scans on glossy, heavy stock paper.

Ah. Looks like they fit a little too well to be cut from the original boxes, but it's hard to tell from that shot. Could be!

Picked up a few more things from work today...

large.20201021_172355_001.jpg.cc551a0849845cc444d72cf54c7e0968.jpg

Sears Tele-games copies of Canyon Bomber and Target Fun. The boxes are pretty beat and Target Fun is missing the manual but oh well at least they were cheap.

Some other loose carts I was missing. Excited to nab the Tele-games Football since I already had the manual. Text label concentration is a nice add too.

And 2 Genesis controllers for use on the VCS. Er, I mean one Genesis controller and one Computer Video Game Control Pad courtesy of Blockbuster Video.

Almost forgot a very clean VCS owners manual with the log book card/ warranty card

We just saved $1,000 buying the tile for the bathroom on clearance from Home Depot. Did the entire bathroom - walls, floor, shower - for $65! We got very lucky. :)

 

Wife let me splurge a little (as long as she got to buy sewing stuff) -

 

The dual joystick on MicroCenter's website this morning was on sale for $99. I also threw the spinner in the cart for another $50. No tax which I thought was weird but oh well too late to charge me now! :)

When my coworker brought in a bunch of stuff to sell (mostly ps3 stuff and Pokemon cards) I never expected this to be in the pile. Had to snap it up, despite the looks I got from some of my other coworkers.

I know that is coming to the States until 2021... don't know if we are getting a LE or not (maybe just a digital here?)

I think they said there will be a physical release, but I don't think they said anything about LE. I'd be surprised if they didn't do one, but IV FINAL didn't get anything special aside from... yay, useless pins~

 

IV did get something of one, even if it's really not a great LE, but it's better than nothing.

A generic 44pin IDE to CF card adapter for $2.15. It's one of those super cheap Chinese ones and for all I know it might arrive in 2021.

That Adventure Island for the GC is awesome. If you have not played it before you are in for a treat!
