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.


August 17, 2013 Pickup

For starters, I bought a NES Four Score today. First I’ve seen of it and it looks better than the Satellite, mainly because it’s not wireless and doesn’t use four ‘C’ batteries.

Secondly, I got hired for a new job this week, training starts Tuesday, so I bought myself a ‘I got hired’ present. I know that’s a lame excuse, whatever I do what I want. I’m super excited I will be getting paid now, these pickups should start increasing in number of items. Anyways, I grabbed myself a Virtual Boy (with Mario’s Tennis, box as bad as it is, and manuals for both).

And present to myself number two was Tales of Phantasia CIB for the Super Famicom. I plan to get the Retron 5 when it comes out, so Famicom and Super Famicom games will start getting added to my collection as I find them. Basically, I wanted to grab this before someone else decided to (Since I’m a big fan of the series).
