’99 Redux

Gave up on a possible N64 complete set a while back, but when I realized I have a grail (Super Bowling) sitting on my shelf, there’s still a chance. So, time to start plugging away again on commons, like this lot that ran me $14.

Kung Fu Q

A small snag from a local game store. $12 to fill in some collection holes. Scooby Doo is pretty raw, but it was only $3, so I can always pick up another copy down the line if need be.

A $45 out of town game store haul nets this uneventful filler, but plugs holes in my ever fuller SNES set. I’m now five games away from 500 SNES titles.

And to quote Ghostbusters II where appropriate – “Bass Masters. It’s a fishing show.”

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.
