Thanks dood!

I was really trying to get the sanrio animal crossing amiibo cards this morning but my closest target told me they didnt get their stock in time for release.. tried to go up there and find out why my order got cancelled at 9:47.. too late to try the stores on the other side of town 馃槙

Got these two instead:

Hey, so trying to navigate this thread with this many pictures per post is really annoying.. sorry y'all I just get so excited over stupid stuff. Gonna try something different and split up posts to a couple pictures per to maybe get this back on track and a little more viewable.

Here goes the week!

Tick tick tick, thought the kb toys display sticker was neat and kept it intact with the reminant of price tag (rip kb)

spacer.png

Thrift toys up top, $2 wii u stuff, and some ps3

spacer.png

Mynintendo mario zipper pouch, $2 360 minty controller I wanted to mod but it's in too nice of shape, couple beautiful clear ps1 memory cards, gb 4in1 as well as heiankyo alien and a cheapo nintendo s video cable.

Mandy snagged these from the local, minus hades from best buy. Cool to see katanakami, not many imports for sale round these parts.

Continuing on to the next post:

Xbox stufff, I never thought I would buy those burger king games again but here we are. Deal on em off ebay, $6 shipped for the 3 sealed.聽

Local stuff, thought the combo dvd batman was pretty cool, happy to finally pick up a copy of odin sphere for ps2 as well.

Onto some thrift finds, always love finding nintendo character plush. This time it's yoshi!

spacer.png

On the bigger side, n64 tape for scale.

More thrift stuff

Mario kart I had found in a previous thrift trip but had a copy of animal crossing inside. Found a kart disc inside imagine fashion (balance board support oooooo) to cobble together a complete copy. Disc needs to be zapped but can't complain. Super happy with the ps3 ico/shadow bundle too for $5

Here goes this week! First up, 360.

spacer.png

Local place has great prices usually all around but 360 and ps3 are at a real low lately. Mass effect trilogy for under 6, dark souls 2 for 4$, dante's and dragons dogma were 7$ a pop.

spacer.png

rELbEKn.jpg

spacer.png

Lot of $1 games in there, but everything was so cheap. Time to buy 360/ps3 commons is now!! Kinda glad I missed this gen because it really has been a bargain for me to collect and I love it.

Got a bunch of stuff this week so I'm goin a lil early - starting and finishing with gamecube.. here goes!

spacer.png

Nice black label sonic adventure 2, snagged it at the local for $30, I swear the price of this one has hovered around the 20-30$ mark forever but looks like it's up a bit online

On to some odds and ends, took a trip to the flea market for the first time in forever

spacer.png

Found cruisin velocity, ultimate basketball and the dragon quest swords game there, was nice to check out the place since I hadn't been in a year +. It was pretty slow when I went and everyone was wearing their masks properly too, which was a nice surprise.

Back to the local for some ps3 & wii cheapies

spacer.png

spacer.png

Mandy picked up the monster hunter big boi amiibo and the poison control collectors edition for the switch.

On from there, picked up a behar bros kenzei signal converter to go along with my older hanzo dreamcast vga聽box without scart. It聽converts a vga's rgbhv signal聽to rgbs.

spacer.png

Details on the kenzei:聽

https://www.beharbros.com/kenzei

It can be used with an hdmi upscaler like the xrgb frame meister or ossc to look good on some fancy modern screen or an rgb modded/compatable crt via scart or component. Might get an ossc down the line but I am honestly thinking of using it in the meantime to see how the dc looks with component video output on my toshiba af crt.. kinda just to play around.. I already have vga monitors it's just nice to have options.

Anyway finishing the week with a rather hard to find jpn gamecube title, eisei meijen vi

spacer.png

Yeah, it's a shogi game. It was also released on ps2 in japan but I feel like the gamecube version had a lower print (complete guess but I mean the ps2 was pretty popular). The seller tossed in some origami shuriken stars and cute sticker which I love (those are staying in the case haha)

Have a great week everyone! Stay safe out thurrrr.

Lots of xbox this week, after this post I've made it over 600 xbox games (602?) !

Starting off with jpn gcn:

spacer.png

#2 in the hudson collection, and my first dip of the 4 releases. Held off on these for a long time but I'm nearing the end of jpn exclusives so I figured why not. Price for these hasn't changed much compared to common jpn cube stuff lately.

spacer.png

Random cheapies, phantasy star at market value from eBay.

Here comes some xbox

spacer.png

Blockbuster variant cover for gta3, ms company purchase amped for $2 then I ruined the ms sticker by cleaning it hahaha.. nbd to me and those aren't that hard to find anyways just interesting. Various games off the list. Snagged the 3rd party (intec) controller and extension from the thrift for $4 together.

spacer.png

Got a lot of kids games from the ebay, glad to get nightmare before christmas finally.

Happy last week of April, jumping into it with some trash ds games!

spacer.png

Can't say no for a buck each, the cases are in great shape.

Mandy's picks of the week (minus tiger):

spacer.png

Good price on the castlevania, she snagged etrian Untold #1 since I had number 2. Tiger woods is sealed and I couldn't leave it for $2

Snagged another dsi at the thrift!

spacer.png

$25 for the bundle, cleaned up works great, stoked to add another color so I can display them like so:

spacer.png

I found that snes cart protectors fit a dsi almost perfectly (fits a lite as well, little snug), used the cricut to make little decals and they look great!

Snagged a great 23pc fix em up controller lot, still working on it but these are the ones that work great so far after cleaning and fixing:

I've been looking casually for it for a lil while, but ironically had been looking for it online just recently and saw the art a couple times but couldn't find a copy that actually had the bonus dvd with it . Stop into the local gamestore and voila, luck was on my side.

Is the gamecube version a mini dvd or fullsize?

Full-size, I believe. According聽to聽these Reddit posts, the DVD聽was included in a separate plastic聽sleeve:

spacer.png

More from the lot, ticking off the list.

spacer.png

Splinter cell art variant, la rush but display sticker, blockbuster driver 3 display art, jpn exclusive world soccer 2002 (just realized I have on gamecube too lol)

I gotta buy a Banjo-Kazooie amiibo sometime. I like聽the Banjo games for N64 and GBA and wish聽the series could continue on Nintendo systems. At least Banjo and Kazooie are聽in Smash Bros. Ultimate, which is聽certainly better聽than nothing.

Nice Xbox finds. I've been聽a fan of聽the Splinter Cell series since 2005 or so, and Vexx wasn't聽too bad. Have yet聽to play LA Rush, even聽though I've played all聽the other Rush games. Didn't know World Soccer 2002 was on Xbox, even聽though I've been collecting imports for years.

@MegaMan52The quality of the amiibo is really nice, they did a great job on em. I also really like the relationship between Nintendo and Microsoft, glad they can loan out banjo.聽

I think world soccer 02 also came out on ps2, pretty sure it was multiplatform but I can't resist a cheapie.. think it was 7$ shipped from someone in texas. Can't wait to finish the us Xbox set to focus more on the imports, but I love finding em here and there.. so easy to get distracted.
