Gearing Up

“Hey, we’re heading out of town. Want to go?”

*Googles game stores in the area*

Damn right I do.

Nothing special in this batch and for $120 total, I’m right on eBay prices, but I’m nearing closure on the Game Gear collection so I’ll pay up for certain oddities, and you just don’t see Jaguar games in the wild anymore. Hitting up stores you’ve never been usually means finding something off the wall.

Vexxing

Grail achieved. This is my second Vectrex after I stupidly sold my first one about 15 years ago. Came with two boxed games (Scramble, Solar Quest) and Hyperdrive loose. $350 is a steal for one these days, especially without any cosmetic flaws or buzzing issues. Lucky enough to find a friend of a friend who was looking to sell.

Thrift… Score

If you believe thrift stores are a pointless exercise these days, I leave you with this sage advice: “You never know.” Whole stack? Just under $30. Every game is flawless and complete (AC even has the memory card). Thanks Salvation Army.

Thriftin’ & Winnin’

Not many NES games make it to thrift store floors anymore, so I almost felt obligated to grab a couple. $25 for the stack, and that’s not too bad, especially with Krusty in the mix.

Cheap Boxing

A small Facebook marketplace grab for $10. Filling in some collection holes, although Wings of War was on my “to play” lost for a long while.

Taking Care of Business

After discovering I somehow didn’t own Columns – the second most common Game Gear game behind Sonic 2 – that needed fixed. Same with Lion King, and I’m now under 50 GG games to go for a complete US set. Total cost was nothing because I had a return and it equaled out.

Out of Town Visitor

Out of state I went to score this haul from thrift and game stores. About $115 total, but that’s primarily due to paying up for Metal Masters and Iron Man, the latter of which draws me closer to a complete US Game Gear set. And, having never seen Metal Masters in person, this was the time to make it happen.

It Has Begun!

Probably the best start to garage sale season in a decade. Whole stack was a mere $2 each. Need most of them for the collection, but Mario Golf and the black label Metal Gear will recoup my spending on their own.

Today, Part II

Ended up heading out for a second time today. Ended up with this $15 haul, enough to make anyone jealous for Equestrian Showcase on its own.

What’s Old is New Again

Turns out a new media shop opened where one closed not too long ago, so here was are. Everything in this stack was a buck, and buy three get one free. Wii Sports was a thrift store find. Total? About $15 for everything.
