  1. not sealed. Just cart / manual / box but like new given the overall grade. Top label reads: *Made in China, Round SOQ TM, No Rating, Mani, Nintendo Hologram Sticker, Chinese Version (CHN Code) *Made in China, No Rating, CHN Code (Cart) * Printed in China, No Rating, CHN Code (Manual)
  2. I figured maybe some people here would enjoy this somewhat as much as I do. One of my most very favorite games growing up and excited to own it in it's most truly rare variation .... CHN Solar Striker - CiB. So hot right now. @JVOSS @RH @Splain
  3. In all seriousness @monsterG .... there is no answer to your question on what is the hardest CHN game to find is. While the last one in my set was Bomber Man GB 2, I doubt that was his last one. It really is luck of the draw to find more than a handful of these titles whatsoever at all, so no one will be able to say anything to the question IMO.
  4. I had made a solid attempt at getting this list going a little while ago with a little nudge from @Art of Nintendo Power .... so here's where I landed. If anyone has any new ones to contribute ... please, by all means! You will notice some trends. And I'm fairly positive that some of the missing issues that fall within a sticker set, probably are ok to assign the same last issue notice. But I like to have confirmation still first! Legend AC = Additional Cover Page Sticker = physical sticker on front cover If not noted, it was printed on the cover physical for distribution One issue does have a last issue notice on the plastic mailer as well Nintendo Power Last Issue Variants Issue Number Cover Information Last Issue Variant Example / Reference Issue 001 Super Mario Bros 2 n/a Issue 002 Castlevania 2 n/a Issue 003 Track and Field 2 n/a Issue 004 Zelda 2 n/a Issue 005 Ninja Gaiden Issue 006 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Issue 007 Mega Man 2 Issue 008 Duck Tales Issue 009 Tetris Issue 010 Batman AC - About to Experience a Power Failure https://i.imgur.com/lMGdo1Q.jpeg Issue 011 Super Mario Bros 3 Issue 012 Super C AC - About to Experience a Power Failure https://i.imgur.com/lMGdo1Q.jpeg Issue 013 Super Mario Bros. 3 Strategy Guide Issue 014 Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers AC - Deal with Killer Attack Dog Ninja https://i.imgur.com/phdVps6.jpg Issue 015 Ninja Gaiden II Strategy Guide AC - Facing Major Power Shutdown https://i.imgur.com/39o2QHE.jpg Issue 016 Maniac Mansion Issue 017 Final Fantasy Strategy Guide AC - Facing Major Power Shutdown https://i.imgur.com/39o2QHE.jpg Issue 018 Dr Mario Issue 019 4 Player Extra Strategy Guide Issue 020 Mega Man III AC - Deal with Killer Attack Dog Ninja https://i.imgur.com/phdVps6.jpg Issue 021 Star Tropics Issue 022 Metal Storm Issue 023 Power Blade Issue 024 Vice: Project Doom Issue 025 Battle Toads Issue 026 Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Issue 027 Mega Man in Dr. Wily's Revenge AC - Secret Message For Eyes of https://i.imgur.com/bx3AFQY.jpg Issue 028 Super Mario World Issue 029 Star Trek Issue 030 Final Fantasy II Issue 031 Metroid AC - Secret Message For Eyes of https://i.imgur.com/bx3AFQY.jpg Issue 032 Super Castlevania IV Issue 033 TMNT III: The Manhattan Project Issue 034 Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Issue 035 WWF Super Wrestlemania Sticker - Red Circle w/ Blue Triangle https://i.imgur.com/9P4O1FC.jpeg Issue 036 Darkwing Duck Sticker - Red Circle w/ Blue Triangle https://i.imgur.com/x6c7UbP.jpg AC - Get a Friend to Subscribe Offer Issue 037 Lemmings Issue 038 Street Fighter II Sticker - Red Circle w/ Blue Triangle https://i.imgur.com/cxcJukT.jpeg Issue 039 Mario Paint Issue 040 Felix the Cat Sealed in Bag Notice https://i.imgur.com/wmAOH3k.jpeg Issue 041 Super Mario Kart Issue 042 Super Star Wars Blue Circle Cover notice https://i.imgur.com/GKiWcQb.jpeg Issue 043 Road Runner's Death Valley Rally AC - Man with Child https://i.imgur.com/8V6fxAZ.jpeg Issue 044 The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse Issue 045 Addam's Family Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt AC - Man with Child https://i.imgur.com/8V6fxAZ.jpeg Issue 046 Tiny Toon Adv.

  5. $200+ is a good starting point. It's pretty hard to find and comes from a popular franchise
  6. Amazing set my man!!! Congrats on going that extra mile…. This one is just a beast. Awesome to see it come together for you.
  7. @Rivin - thank you for sharing the origin of that sticker. I’m curious….Do you have a complete set with all cover variants and a newsstand set as well? I’ve tossed around doing newsstand variants as well but still can’t make the commitment
  8. Nice to see this poster does exist with a few people. I also have it in great shape. Found it probably right around the same time as NP 4 Ever it looks like. Hadn’t seen / heard of another since these two just were mentioned! Great stuff @Dr. Morbis @Nintendopower4ever!
  9. Here’s what I’d say is the best love for turbografx. The paper side! After months of waiting it finally arrived from overseas. Stoked to get the near complete library of paper at once!
  10. Gotta post a group photo now!!
  11. Mr Rothchild has let me touch his box. Will sort through this steamy pile and get it moving tomorrow likely ....
  12. As I started in on this task of building a list and collecting these guides .... I can to realize there really isn't any one solid source for a list with variants on this set. It is an incredible guide set that was top notch during creation. Many useful guides covering all sorts of platforms. I am nearing completion myself and figured I'd get this list out into the public space for any other crazy people that are trying to go for a full set or maybe want to check out a guide from a different publisher than the known Bradygames / Prima empires that were popular during this time span. There are some discrepancies on numbering in the beginning and with the last book. Otherwise this should be the full run. If anyone has any other variants (particular Blockbuster covers), please speak up! I'd love to see new things to add to this list as I've been consistently doing so for the better part of a year now. If the book is highlighted in red.... I'm interested in buying ! hahaha, sorry had to put a shameless plug into this as it's been a beast to complete. And to those that are interested, essentially every book they did had a poster included specific to Versus books. Only a few were missing posters (001 / 04 / Counterstrike) that I have found so far. Hopefully the internet now has a better resource for these Perfect Guide books. Such a great run from a great publisher .... Enjoy! Total number of guides with variants found thus far: 65 Versus Guide Books 001 Massive Online Gaming 01 Street Fighter Alpha 2 02 Final Fantasy VII (standard) 02 Final Fantasy VII (better - more text on cover) 03 Tekken 3 (Arcade) 04 Resident Evil 2 Perfect Guide (Unauthorized) 05 Metal Gear Solid (blue foil) 05 Metal Gear Solid (red foil) 05 Metal Gear Solid (silver foil) 06 Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time (regular edition) 06 Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time (collector's edition) 07 Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time ($7.99 cover variant) 07 Dino Crisis 08 Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow 08 Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow ($7.99 cover variant) 09 Resident Evil 3 Nemesis 10 Donkey Kong 64 11 Pokémon Trading Card Game 12 Wild Arms 2 13 Perfect Dark (collector's edition) 13 Perfect Dark (collector's edition - blockbuster cover) 14 Ecco the Dolphin 15 Baldur's Gate II- Shadow of Amn 16 Pokémon Gold & Silver Adventure Guide 17 Legend of Zelda, The: Majora's Mask 17 Legend of Zelda, The: Majora's Mask (blockbuster cover) 18 Tekken Tag 18 Tekken Tag (blockbuster cover) 19 Ridge Racer V 20 Shenmue 21 Grandia II (DC) 22 Pokémon Gold & Silver Collector's Edition 22 Pokémon Gold & Silver Collector's Edition ($7.99 cover variant) 23 Phantasy star Online (DC) 24 Pokémon Stadium 2 25 Legend of Zelda - Oracle of Ages & Oracle of Seasons 26 Super Mario Advance 27 Baldur's Gate II - Throne of Bhaal 28 Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec 29 Pokémon Crystal 30 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 31 Luigi's Mansion 31 Luigi's Mansion (Blockbuster cover variant) 32 Half Life 33 Devil May Cry 34 Rayman Arena (still yet to confirm this) 35 Grandia II (PS2) 36 Maximo 37 Sonic Adventure 2 Battle / Sonic Advance 38 Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast (PC) 39 Digimon World 3 40 Neverwinter Nights Adventure Guide 41 Neverwinter Nights World Builder Guide 42 Eternal Darkness 43 Super Mario Sunshine 44 Grandia Xtreme 45 Starfox Adventures 46 NBA 2K3 47 Wild Arms 3 48 Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (PS2,XBOX,PC) 49 Evolution Worlds 50 Phantasy Star Online (GC,XB) 51 Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast (PC,GC,XB) 52 Metroid Prime NONE Counter-Strike
  13. I will pass as well. Mr Rothchild was spot on
  14. Welcome aboard NGD! Glad to see you come check it all out!
