Thought it would be fun to bump this old thread. People loosing their minds that someone paid $610 for a CIB Lochjaw. 😁

Honestly I'm surprised it only went for $610 with the manual.  Those don't come up for auction very often (I look on ebay pretty much daily over the last year and a half or so and never recall seeing one).  All it takes is two collectors who want a complete set to start bidding it up.

Dancing rodents are good, Stan, but I think me, Lemmi, and Kyle will agree, nothing beats The Ghoul!

 

Ghoul Dance!

 

Ghoul power!


As much as I generally loathe seeing things I posted nearly 20 (!!!) years ago, this was a nice little memory. Thanks to the power of the Wayback Machine, I was evidently talking about this. (Ron "The Ghoul" Sweed passed away on April 1, 2019 - I've continued to be just as big a fan in this day and age as I was back then. I remember Lemmi and I PM'ing back and forth about him; whatever happened to Lemmi?)

 

Anyway, regarding the topic at hand...

It's amazing to recall a time when a game selling for $500 was considered outrageous. Can you imagine the news of a loose Air Raid selling for 10 grand back in 2002? AA would have had a veritable site-wide mental freakout or something! Nowadays, a boxed copy of that or Red Sea Crossing selling for $500 would be considered the bargain of the century! (In these parts, at least.)

I just bought a used VCS! Am I crazy? I bought some replacement captors and a A/V mod kit on eBay. Then I bought a used controller and a boxed copy of Gravitar...
