  1. I've got one on the way that's supposedly a flip top (different auction), so we'll see in a week
  2. Hey guy, long time no post, I found a new variant for Sonic 3, apparently in addition to the two slide boxes, there was also a flip-top version: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sonic-The-Hedgehog-3-Sega-Genesis-1997-Brand-New-Factory-Sealed/373023728500
  3. In the 90's when sonic became big, there was a whole line of sonic-themed birthday party supplies by "C.A. Reed": plates, napkins, streamers, banners, and much more. I've recently come into possession of a few items, and now I'm looking to expand my collection. I currently have sealed NOS packs for the flag pendant banners and invitation cards, I'm looking for any of the other (known) items: Blowouts (Noise Makers) Cake Candle Cake Topper Gift/Favor Bags Jointed Banner Paper Cups & Plates Paper Napkins Party Hats Party Streamers [no picture available] Table Centerpiece Table Cloth I'm looking to either buy or trade for some of the extra sealed flag banner packs I have, so shoot me a message if you have any you're looking to get rid of! Thanks for looking!
  4. I mean, not really. I don't think there's a single release in the US that used the mini cardboard box with a plastic tray (and, again, phillips screws). The Genesis branding doesn't mean too much tbh. Remember, plagerism is Asia's MO...
  5. So I'm a CIB Genesis collector and I've had a few games with this issue in my time, and I'm wondering how other collectors handle this. At first, presuming the manual was otherwise in good shape, I used to just leave them alone. Lately though, I've started removing the staples in order to prevent the rust from further staining the pages (or leeching into the cardboard box, where applicable), cleaning off whatever has leached over as best I can, and finally leaving the manual staple-less. I've thought about trying to find a replacement staple of matching-size, but I'm worried it would eventually begin rusting due to contact with the rust already in the paper. I know some collectors like to see rusty staples, and take it as a sign of authenticity. How do you handle this in your own collections?
  6. Major update! So I found out that apparently SegaRetro already had a list of console box variants for the model 1/2 Genesis (though incomplete and not very detailed), so I've been able to add over 20 new variants to my list! Included are new core systems, US pack in variants, and Canadian variants! The one thing I've still not been able to find are any Mexican system variants, there must be at least one given that they at least had Chavez II as a Mexican-exclusive release...
  7. Hello all! I've been collecting for Sega Genesis a while now and I've finally got around to listing a bunch of extras I've accumulated. I'm putting these for auction on eBay, but if you're interested in any of them and want to buy directly, shoot me a message and we can work out a deal (I'll save on fees, you'll save on tax ).

Thanks for looking!
  8. Interesting that it uses regular phillips screws... I've seen people argue on both sides of the Asia/North America issue, it does have genesis branding, but they're so rare here as opposed to overseas
  9. So I haven't had much time to work on this stuff lately (there's still more of Tripredacus-Agent's list to go through and verify), but while sorting a box of games this weekend I found a few more variants not on either your matrix or his list: Ariel the Little Mermaid has 2 clamshell variants: Cart has no number, picture is wider, "Assembled in USA", Case rear has number 670-2668 Cart has number "670-2667", picture is narrower/mirrored, "Made in Japan", Case rear has number 671-2560 King's Bounty has 2 clamshell variants: Cart label has orange text with gray background Cart label has red/black text with pink background Everything else looks identical NHL 96 has 2 clamshell variants: Case has yellow "The best sports simulator ever" sticker Case has no sticker Everything else looks identical Also, a Canadian variant of Streets of Rage 2 has been found:
  10. @Gorfcadet this is awesome, thanks so much for these scans! <nevermind, I figured it out> also FYI, pages 22/23 and pages 14/16 are duplicates
  11. Thank you all for the nice comments, I had a blast restoring this! On a side note, if anyone knows of someone looking to offload one of the silver variants (either style - there are two), I'd love to add another to my collection! Northeast US here, but I'd be willing to go pretty far to get it.
