Finds 553: A whole day of hunting leads to some awesome finds!

 Another week and another set of findings. Lots of new awesome stuff from a whole day of hunting! I'm going to run out of room if I keep this up!! Oh noes!!! Lets check out what we found this time around.
 Here is a whole bunch of loose discs. None of them are garbage though. You have mostly Nintendo titles for the cube and Samurai Shodown for the 3DO!
 Here are some common games that I will use for awesome games. Also, a Pacman handheld and Super Mario Bros Deluxe Box!
 Here are some consoles. The two NES consoles are painted white for some reason, I'm guessing they were too yellowed! The Wii console works great and also has some games in it! Two Famicom pirates and a Gameboy Color Gameshark! Good stuff!
Here are some Playstation beautires. Marvel vs Street Fighter being the ace of the lot. There is also Street Fighter Alpha 3, Swag Man, Shadow Tower and Trap Gunner. Good stuff!

It was another successful hunt with new stuff for my shoppe and myself. I have to start getting rid of this stuff! Be sure to check out my shoppe as you might find some of this stuff there!

Retro-bit of the day 176: Spanky's Quest (SNES)

Here is a little wicked game by Natsume. I picked it up with a bunch of other games a couple of weeks ago and couldn't be happier! 

Retro-bit of the day 175: Dragon Ball Z Hyper Dimension (SNES)

Here is another kewl game I was able to pick up in my journeys to Peru. This one is Hyper Dimension for the SNES. Everyone knows this game as the best DBZ game for the 16-bit console. Believe me, the rest of them suck compared to this one! 


CIB Sunday 007: Blade Force (3DO)

I barely find any 3DO games but I was lucky enough to find two this week. The other one being a loose copy of Samurai Shodown. I'm happy to have this game as my 3DO collection is quite small. It definitely takes this week's CIB Sunday entry. 


Sega Saturday 007: The Flintstones (GEN)

I'm real happy about this game! It's very fun and kinda semi-rare. It was no doubt that I would include it in my Sega Saturday posts! WILMAAAA!! BAM BAMM!!!! J-W!!!!!!!!!! MR SLATEEEEE!!


Famicom Friday 006: Super Mario Bros 2 (FC)

I loved the custom label job I made for this game so it was only justified to post it in my Famicom Friday post. It's a little late but better late than never! Enjoy!


Retro-bit of the day 173: International Soccer Deluxe (SFC)

Here is a little gem of a soccer game. The game is just lots of fun to play especially against a friend. I used to play the fuck out of this game via-emulator before my collecting saga started...gotta love it! 


Retro-bit of the day 172: Pokemon Adventure 3 (FC)

Part three starts you off even further in the game and with a Pokemon team already in your grasp! These are pirates for ya! 


Retro-bit of the day 171: Pokemon Adventure 2 (FC)

Here is the second one in the series. How do I know it's the second one? It has a two on it! DUH! Also, this game starts off at the halfway point of the journey. I'm guessing your journey ends too soon in part one... hmmm...

Retro-bit of the day 170: Pokemon Adventure 1 (FC)

Some of the odd games released by Chinese pirates involve Pokemon. This one is no different! It's a Pokemon RPG for the Famicom. Just as you see it...

Finds 552: Gundam Wing Models, Boxed Clear Game Boy, and Games!

A little bump to my car was all the luck I needed to find these awesome gems! I'm extremely happy with today's findings and I can tell you that my shoppe is going to be packing with most of these items! Lets take a look at all of these new additions.
Here is a complete in box clear original Game Boy! It's mondo cool!

I always had a liking to these action figures / models of anime series such as Gundam Wing. They are so articulated! It's incredible! Amazingly, all of them came complete! I love the one with the wings...
I picked up some of these games which I can only remember not ever seeing them. Dino Land is definitely interesting and well, Decap Attack has peculiar artwork.
Finally, I found a boxed 3DO game which is rare in these parts of the hood! Also, a boxed Mario Kart DS and a fat Nintendo DS. They weren't cheap but totally worth the investment.

Now, I shall wait for Thursday as I will have another shot at a flea market hunt! Game on!

Finds 550: Mega Man Legends 2, Mario Nintendo DSI, and Sega Sports Lot

Here are some recent stuff that came in the mail for me. There is one item missing that apparently got sent to the wrong destination. I hope to be able to get that game but in the mean time, check out these awesome games! The gem of course is Mega Man Legends 2 which I will have to find a manual for. The Nintendo DSI is also quite gorgeous! It's the 25th Anniversary Mario Edition! Very collectable indeed! ^_^

Finds 549: Flea Market Pick Ups! Street Fighter Controller, Lot of Games, Lots to Love!

 A trip to the flea market brought a lot of new stuff! It's amazing the things you can find at times. I definitely went home happy and will definitely be hitting the flea market more often! Here are the gems of today!
 I picked up a bunch of boxed games. The Duck Dodgers and Rampage 2 had water damage which ended up breaking the Duck game box while the Rampage 2 box was spared! I also got a bunch of empty boxes for games and two genesis games which were also in perfect condition!
 This Nintendo 64 lot was pretty good especially because I only paid five bucks for it! Such a sweet deal!
 A bunch of random PS2 titles as well as Final Fantasy Advent Children DVD set!
 I will never say no to a PS3 controller for two bucks.
 A PS1 is quite abundant at the flea market but the vendor insisted I paid five bucks for everything...
I picked up Batman and Robin for the Game Gear, a Game Boy Pocket, and Street Fighter 15th Anniversary Controller. 

It was great going back and coming out full of goodies. I have a good feeling about this summer's hunt! Things have definitely started on the right path! Game on!

Finds 547: Persona 4 Sealed and a lot of Sega Sports Titles

I was browsing through eBay and couldn't help to see a sealed copy of Persona 4 for a very cheap price. Apparently, a lot of sellers have come across a bunch of copies of this gem and are selling them by the masses. I suggest if you have some extra cash, pick up a sealed copy of this game! It's definitely worth it! Also, a lot of 20 sports titles for the Genesis arrived! I'm pretty sure you know what I'm going to do with all of them!
