Pickups for the Week of August 3rd 2015

I wasn’t planning on picking anything up this week, but I ended up doing so anyways when the girlfriend wanted to go out and hunt since she doesn’t get to as much. We quit after our first stop which had some great stuff we couldn’t pass up. Here is what I grabbed:

First up are cartridges only, Kirby’s Adventure for Famicom and Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past for Super Famicom. For the virtual boy we have Bomberman: Panic Bomber CIB, although the box is a bit crushed. For the Neo Geo Pocket that is Del Sol 2, a slot machine game, I love my Neo Geo Pocket Color and am always happy to get new games for it. Finally we have a Gamecube Mario Party 4.

I also have a slightly early unexpected ebay mail arrival. A Chrono Trigger Sheet Music Book. I do not play any instruments, but my girlfriend does. So this is slightly for her, but mostly me because I want a Chrono Trigger collection so bad.


Pickups for the Week of July 27th 2015

This is pretty much a mail call only week. No Game Hunting this week.

We’ll start with the games. The other Club Nintendo ‘Game & Watch Collection’ game arrived. Followed shortly by my import of Japan’s Club Nintendo Platinum Reward ‘Tingles Balloon Fight’.

Next up is the Club Nintendo Platinum Reward Mario Statue I ordered to help complete my Platinum Reward Collection.

Palutena arrived safe and sound in the mail after worries of bad packing. And finally, I spent the morning from 4 A.M. until 10 A.M. waiting in line for non other than the Dark Pit Amiibo. My first time waiting in line for an Amiibo due to it being in-store only, and it was actually quite an enjoyable experience overall. You can keep track of my Amiibo collection on it’s page.

Pickups for the week of July 20, 2015

Okay, lately I have been using Ebay to work on getting some specific stuff, but lets get this started with what I have picked up this week and was has arrived in the mail so far.

First, the pickups: First of all, a local game shop had this awesome Japanese copy of Marvel Super Heroes.

Followed bu just a few Atari 2600 games and manuals. Something called Private Eye (can’t wait to review this and see what it is), Lock ‘N’ Chase (this one’s manual is a little torn in the upper right corner) and Frogs and Flies.

Now, moving on to the Ebay arrivals. First up is a very complete in box Super Famicom Chrono Trigger, it even has all the plastic wrapping.

Game & Watch Collection 2,  ordered 1 as well since I missed out on these.

And lastly, I’ve started collecting the couple of Club Nintendo Platinum Rewards I missed, here is the Pin Set.

July 3, 2015 Pickups

First, Boxed copies of Terminator 2 (missing the manual) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit for NES.

Second, Terminator 2 arcade game (with manual) for SNES, and Ecco the Dolphin for Dreamcast. Then Sport, Wolverine, and Wild Gunman for NES.

Lastly, a Gamecube console booklet, some random instruction books I didn’t have, and a NES sleeve.

June 26, 2015 Pickups

Alright, I haven’t done one of these for awhile. I keep forgetting. I’m just going to condense it down to the weeks pickups.

First of all, for those who missed it, I have finally ordered myself a CIB E.T. fo my 2600 E.T. collection. because what E.T. collector/defender doesn’t have at least one CIB.

Secondly, even though I don’t have an Intellivision, I had to grab these three games for the condition they are in. and maybe they will finally prompt me to seek one out. We have: Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, Pitfall!, and Donkey Kong.

April 25, 2015 Pickup

Picked up some good games yesterday. I haven’t really gotten anything in awhile. So just like the Atari Firdays, lets try and get this going again as well.

Picked up 5 NES games: Rad Racer 2, Videomation, Star Trek 25th Anniversary, Gotcha!, and To The Earth. The all have pretty nice labels. With the return of my old big box tv out of storage, I was all set and psyched up to start grabbing all the light gun games I could find.

I also grabbed Rock N’ Roll Racing for the Snes, with manual, in pretty nice condition. So I have to get the retron hooked up again.

September 20, 2014 Pickup

Alright, Finally a week where we get something cool. We’ll start with the NES cartridges.

A Couple of super cheap commons: Silent Service, Pin Bot, Roller Ball and Roller Games. The less common Double Dragon 2 I was happy to get after a guy snatched it from me after I had already pulled it from a stack last time, but I don’t fight people. Lastly something rarer called Zen Intergalactic Ninja, because who doesn’t love alien space ninja’s?

Moving on we have a boxed copy of Turrican for the Sega Genesis. It’s not often I pick up Atari 2600 games, but I saw some I had to have. We have Starmaster, Carnival, Centipede, Dig Dug, Jungle Hunt, and Congo Bongo.

I look forward to trying these all out with the Girlfriend, it more fun with more people.

September 6, 2014 Pickup

I forgot to add this one two weeks ago. I Couldn’t find anything cool so I finally grabbed some cheap commons I didn’t have yet.

Stand alone Duck Hunt, Friday The 13th, 10-Yard Fight, Adventures of Lolo, Anticipation, Talking Super Jeopardy, and Top Gun Second Mission for NES. and a Copy of Yoshi’s Safari for the girl who loves Yoshi.

The next post will be better.

August 23, 2014 Pickup

Now before you laugh, I did not find anything super cool amazing special this weekend. So instead I picked up what you see in the picture below.

Link’s Crossbow training is pretty much the only Zelda game I can think of that I did not own yet, and to find a complete with crossbow version like this made it a must have, especially when it’s pretty much the same price without the crossbow. F1-Race and F-zero are on my “I used to own these at one time, let’s get them back list”. I also decided to pick up three cheap Snes games. Clue because I love the movie, and it’s a fun board game. Space Ace and Shaq-Fu…..well, I don’t know if I can justify these. Tetris, because Famicom games are awesome to have.

Like I said, nothing special, just a few things I didn’t have yet.

August 21, 2014 Pac-man Board Game

Went to an antique mall the other night and picked up this glorious COMPLETE Pac-man board game. Everything is here and it looks great. I can’t wait to try playing it. I know Mr. Obsessive Compulsive who I haven’t seen in some time would love to play it. If we do get to play it, I can add to this about how much fun it is and some during play photo’s. (If you don’t know, I never record anything because I don’t have a video camera. I’d rather stick to text and photo’s anyways.) Here’s a picture of the box cover:

We did get to play this once last fall,  and I was on hiatus here so I completely forgot about it. Forgot to take any pictures too. This game rocks. It’s all the fun of Pac-man in 4 player board game flavor. Setup goes a lot faster than you would think for having so many pieces. Pac-Man is pretty fast paced, just roll your dice and move, then pass the dice on. 10/10 would play again.
