Panel Action? Sold.

A post-Christmas gift card binge mixed with a Facebook deal, so around $80 out of pocket (which also includes some unseen movie buys). Find of the day will be Panel Action Bingo, surely at the top of everyone’s wish lists.

Funny enough, although I have the decidedly rarer Flinstones: Surprise at Dinosaur Peak, I have never seen or held a copy of Rescue of Dino and Hoppy until today.

Two In the Box, Ready to Go

And with this Christmas haul, that’s two collections complete – Dreamcast and Hyperscan. With Wrestlemania 32X, I’m down to two boxes for a 100% complete set there as well. The others were on my wishlist for ages.

Broski

Any day with Turbo stuff is a good one. $100 is usually way above my limit for three games, but that’s a great price – a friend’s price, specifically. Having never played any of these, it’s even better value.

Zappin’ Words

A “free” haul thanks to some trade-in credit. I don’t collect a lot of pre-NES, but I adore Word Zapper and was surprised that I didn’t have a copy. Otherwise, just a fill-in to the collection.

Mag-netic

A $50 find from a local seller. The Star Trek is box only, but it’s one less complete 32X game that I need (three to go). The magazines are a mix of Game Players, flyers, and more including the rare Meijer Toy City Hit List. It’s doubtful many of those still survive.

Putting the You in Force

In 20 years of collecting, I’ve never so much as seen a U-Force, let alone a boxed one. So sure I bought this one when I saw it. What I’m going to do with it… well, it’s a really nice box. $40 for the entire haul at a local game store, and for Evolution, I just needed the case. Selling my current copy will bring down the cost.

NBA King

Inadvertently an NBA-focused collecting day from an out-of-town game store. NBA Give ‘n Go is a personal favorite, so finding the box brought out a smile. And hey, a TurboGrafx find too! $60 for everything here.

The Final Countdown

Finally losing patience and nearing the 20th anniversaryol of the Dreamcast launch, I did what I generally don’t do: headed to eBay. With these six in hand though, there remains only one outstanding game for me to complete a full US Dreamcast set – Urban Chaos.

Soon…

The Sailor Man

Birthday shopping day. A small haul, significant for Popeye 2, a routine but uncommon platformer that I’ve never come across before.

In related news, my Jaguar and Jaguar CD are both fixed now, years after I popped their voltage regulators with the wrong AC adapters by mistake. Include that in the same birthday haul I ‘spose.

Something You Don’t See Everyday

Literally. Even if you own one, it’s buried inside your CD-I’s guts, so you really don’t see these much.

After buying the wrong adapter twice (there are two kinds; I managed to buy the smaller one twice), I finally have video capabilities for my CD-I. A $50 score from a former game store owner – and worth every cent.*

*not really, because it’s the CD-I
