Hit the motherload in Reno at a thrift store.


All of these were 3$ a peice. Price next to them is the value that they are worth (about) on eBay. Selling them in my store, so this was a major score for us!

--NES-
Pictionary (SIB) 80$ (x6) $480
Kid Klown (CIB) 90$ (x5) $450
Bio Hazard Battle (SIB) 100$
Captain Planet (boxed no manual) 20$
Kickmaster (CIB) 50$
Ninja Crusader (CIB) 30$
Ultamite Stuntman (CIB) 12$
Tecmo Cup Soccer 40$ (CIB 1) (x3) 120$
The Mutant Virus 15$ (CIB -1 manual)(x3) 45$
Dracula (CIB) 25$
Defenders of Dynotron City (CIB) 12$

--SNES--
Super Smash TV (CIB) 20$
Battleclash (CIB) 8$ (apparently there are no completed listings where this game sold. How far does completed listings go back?)

--Sega Genesis--
Flashback (CIB) 7$

--Jaguar--
Raiden (CIB) 20$

Worth around 1400$
only spent around 90$

thank you Reno.

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P

Picked up a USB gamepad for free. Not the best pad, but with JoyToKey, works great. (JoyToKey is neat, you can even use it to emulate a mouse!)

Also picked up a nice golf club set worth a few hundred for $10. :awesome:

went to the goodwill. got a few records (peter paul and mary, abba, elton john, simon and garfunkle) two cds (a billy joel and pearl jam) and a bunch of poison and vanhalen cassettes for about $15.

also, at the goodwill I picked up a album of 78's but there was no price so the cashier gave it to me for free.

Savers has a 40-something inch widescreen projection SDTV for $70, listed as "needs work".

I plugged it in, pushed the power button, and the power light kept blinking. Most likely power supply capacitors, but I don't want to gamble 70 bucks to find out and they don't like you taking apart their merchandise. (Besides I don't have room for the friggin thing anyway. :()

Original Nintend Vs. Unisystem, with a VS. Super Mario Bros. Board and marquee/control panel installed. This machine used to be a DKjr. machine, for sure, under the red paint is a smooth orange/yellow surface, with white T-molding(the default colors of either a DK, or DK jr. machine) I'll be posting a worklog of my cleaning it up, and restoring it here soon.

Neighbors are moving to an apartment building, so they're selling off a bunch of yard stuff. We got a nice Troy-Built self-propelled lawn mower for $75. (Apparently they got it from Lowes for almost $300 last year. SCORE!) All it needs is a pressure-wash; the gas tank is full, the plug is new, and the oil is fine.

Actually it only cost about $45 if you take into account the scrap value of the old car batteries we took off their hands for free... :D

Good day at goodwill. There was at least 20 CIB NES/SNES games, a few sega genesis's and sega cd's, and a few other cool random things too. I had almost no money, and my girlfriend only had a little over $30 that she could borrow me, so I got the stuff i'd use the most/most valuable. I was considering running out of goodwill with everything in a cart but that would've been a terrible idea, especially since i frequent here.

Got a Philips Theatre Director Battery Backup Surge Protector for $12 but it does not work seems like a relay is bad. Hopefully I can fix it. Also got 2 Xbox 360 wireless controllers for $10, sticks are in good shape they are both newer white ones.

And the best of all things I got this week, A brand new Directv HD-DVR HR-24 500 for free. This thing is the best of the best. My old HR-20 went out so when the guy came out to replace it I asked if he had one of the newest ones and he said no. I was a little disappointed but what can you do. So he pulled one out of his truck and I asked what model do you have and he handed me the box and said its on there. Sure enough it was the one I wanted. I told the guy you just said you had none. He looked at me and said I just like to mess with people and laughed. He was a really cool guy, compared to others that have came out here. He was really interested in my N64 portable he saw on the table that I was working on.
That's Hacking Awsome
