Overpriced or not, it’s rare to see any Turbo Duo game in the wild, so sure, this Wonder Boy import for $15 seemed like a deal. $40 for the whole stack from an out of town game store, which includes that hard to find Tecmo Bowl for the PS1.
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.
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.
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.
