MGC Whatchu Get? Thread v2011

Post by wallydawg » Wed Mar 30, 2011 1:48 pm

Another MGC come and gone, let's see all the cool stuff everyone picked up this year. Pictures preferred cause they are more interesting than a tl;dr wall of text. I did both methods here with all the stuff I got, and since I started the thread I suppose I should go first:

Image
Orange N64 $35. Been looking for this color for a while. My personal favorite color out of the FUNtastic series, for whatever reason.
Mario 64 $15. My friend has wanted this game for a while, was looking for less than $20 so $15 is less than that so I bought it.

Image
Game Gear Halley Wars $2. It's a cool looking vertical shooter. Wasn't sure if it was the game I was thinking of when I bought it, but for $2 I took the gamble and it was the correct game.
Brutal: Above the Claw CIB $12. My 29th 32x game, need 7 more to complete the set.

Image
White Dreamcast controllers $4 each, the transparent blue one was $5. Samba De Amigo $8, Soul Fighter $3

Image
6-Pak $4
Cal Ripken Jr. Free
Bubsy $1.50
Micro Machines $5
Last Action Hero $1.50
Ballz $1

Image
NEXT Generation Magazine $1. My favorite old video game magazine. I like reading about the "failed" 32bit consoles, Jaguar and 3DO.
Parasite Eve $10. It has all the discs (1&2 and the sampler disc) & manual.

Image
PSOne w/hookups $12. They also had a PS1 9000 Series with the tiny board but forgot to go back and get it. Thankfully I checked the extra one I had at home and it's also a 9000 series board. Thanks for the info about that Jon-light.

Image
PStwo & DVD Remote $20 from eagle5953. Thanks Kyle.

Image
Saturn Black Fire $1
PS1 Fluid $1. It's PAL so I probably won't be able to play it, but I like the PAL and NTSC-J cases.
NES Pac-Man and Roadblasters I traded for Gradius, already had Roadblasters though. Oops.

Image
Wheel of Fortune $4 for my dad, he's been wanting to play a WoF game for a while now. Brought my FC16GO so we played in the hotel for a little bit.
Cacoma Knight in Bizyland $4. Essentially A Qix clone.
Zoop SEALED $2.50. I think I'm the only person that likes Zoop. Keeping it sealed though, even if it was probably cheaper than a cart only copy on ebay.
Super Famicom Actraizer $5. Bought a random super fami game to test out a Game Genie I was going to break the tabs off of to play imports. Dude had 3 for $12 games earlier but those flew outta there pretty quick.

Image
ZN-45 case from & Neogeo MVS console from Weaponepsilon, traded a Nomad Screen Mod for them. I think I'm the third or forth owner of this thing and while I would really love to Consolize it, it's already pretty far back on my projects list, and with how slow I tend to work it might not ever get done. Grabbed a couple cheap games off of eBay so hopefully that'll motivate me to start working on it sooner. Enjoy the Nomad Ryan.

SNES Game Genie $6. Bought for the purpose of playing imports, but apparently you don't even need one and can just break the tabs off of your console (or easier, just take the top of the console off). Should be fun to mess around with glitch codes though.

Oh..now I gotta remember what all I got lol.

Let's see now here, tho not nearly as much as last year, I still got a decent pile:

SEGA CD:
Image
Heart of the alien CIB - $10
Robo Aleste CIB - $20

GENESIS:
Image
Soldiers of Fortune CIB - $10
Mega Man: The Wily Wars - $50
Alien Soldier - $50
Eternal Champions CIB - $2
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 - $3
Castlevania: Bloodlines CIB (and super minty!) - $25
Bulls vs Lakers CIB - $0.50
Weoponlord CIB - $2
Phantasy Star II (just the case) - $2
Urban Strike - $2
Target Earth - $3
Herzog Zwei - $20

Not bad with some of those, especially Castlevania and Herzog, as those both tend to go for a whole lot more elsewhere lol. Bit ouch with The Mega Man and Alien soldier games...darn repros anyway lol. Still, they were a heck of a lot cheaper than their official counterparts and don't require any special mods to play 8)

The one loose genesis game I got:
Image
Ristar - $2

SATURN
Image
Fatal Fury 3 (jap) - $10
Dragon Ball Z Densetsu (jap) - $10


Gamecube

Mega Man Xtreme 2 - $8
Mega Man III - $20
Pokemon Fire red - $15

I'll get pictures up eventually.

I didnt spend too much because I bought a lot of beer at the bar.....

I did however buy a dreamcast case for $5, I won the 1st place cart of Yars' Revenge for NES, I grabbed a bunch of Feet of Fury copies, and of course, my sweet Nomad upgrade from Wallydog. I like trade shows, but those vendors were selling games for almost their original MSRP plus the "collector's premium". Still had a bunch of fun! There were some stuff I would've liked to buy, but I knew I with a little patience, I'll scour them for pennies off ebay.

Did you ever figure out how to fix the laserdisc player so you don't have to smack it on the side to get it to load a disc? :lol:
