Finds 1603: Internal DVD Writer, Sound Blaster CDs, and Another Tiny Laptop Lifebook U810

Another awesome little gadget with this tiny Laptop. This one is the Fujitsu Lifebook U810 which needs a charger so I'll let you know how that's going. I also got some Sound Blaster driver CDs which are very helpful due to the fact that sound blaster is quite popular and the files might be helpful in future installations and restorations. I also got an internal DVD writer and some brand new VHS tapes. Why the VHS tapes? Just because! Lets keep growing the collection! 


Finds 1602: Movie April, Antrax and Scumbug

Some new NECA additions are finally here. I waited for the April for a long time and it's finally here. Also, some less known characters at least by me with Antrax and Scumbug. You know me, I'm into collecting the entire cartoon series. 


Finds 1601: Really Kick Ass Lot! Mega Man 2, Mega Man 6, Secret of Mana, and Other Goodies

Here are some amazing additions to the collection. Not only do we have some really cool Wii titles, but we have some NES and SNES gems! Lets start with the Wii and Wiiu titles which are good hit games such as Super Paper Mario and Super Mario Galaxy. I did picked up the Wiiu titles to build up my Wiiu collection and a DS games called Science Papa which I got because I just love the cover art. Finally, Mega Man 2 and 6 were very amazing finds and then Secret of Mana and the other goodie right there. Totally loving this! Great look! Lets keep that collection growing! 


Finds 1600: Mega Man the Wily Wars Re-relaese and Monster Viator

It's finally here! Mega Man the Wily Wars was officially released in the USA through Limited Run Games and other distributors and it's just beautiful! A complete package to a game we could only enjoy through the Sega Channel back in the mid 90s. We did enjoyed it with emulators but this is the real deal! I also got another game called Monster Viator which is really cool as well. Let the collection keep growing! 


Finds 1599: VHS Tapes, Stunt Race, Digimon for GBA, Super Monkey Ball, Office with Bookshelf, and Others

Here are some awesome additions! Some gameboy games, a couple of memory cards, even a SNES game! The coolest stuff though is the VHS tapes. I still remember the Ace Ventura cartoon and definitely going to watch this one. The Office is also really cool, might install it in one of my computers but which one? We shall see!  


Finds 1598: Toshiba Portege 3110CT Two Pack

Two beautiful Portege 3110CT by Toshiba have made their way to my collection. I got them for a super deal, 12 dollars each! I ordered the charger and have been working on them. Will have updates soon! 
Some specs of them are Pentium 2 300mhz with a 6gb hard drive. Now that's vintage and beautiful!

All New Repros Added to the Shoppe! Pokemon Super Gold 97, Pokemon Super Silver 97, Pokemon Blue Full Color Version, Digimon, Gameboy Wars 3, and Dragon Ball

New repros with labels created by yours truly have been added to the shoppe! Be sure to check these out as there some cool gems. I think the most notable are the Pokemon Silver and Gold games as they contain Pokemon that never made the cut of the later released Pokemon Gold and Silver games. Think of it as a beta of the game except this one was complete and in English. It's such a fresh adventure and it's really cool to see the Pokemon that never made it. Also, Pokemon Blue in full color is available which is a really cool remake of the game in full color of the original 1st gen game. You have Dragon Ball Advance Adventure and Digimon Games which are also very interesting but not for everyone. I also had a request for Gameboy Wars 3 from a client and was finally able to pull through with it. Be sure to check out my shop by clicking here or click on the top Shop tab of the page.

Finds 1597: 100 Floppy Disk Lot!

Another score of floppies. I will be able to make more boot disks and DOS games than ever before! I picked this up for 20 bucks and it was worth every penny. I will be working on new designs for my shoppe and will definitely show them on here. I have so many ideas so I'm very excited to get to work on these!

Finds 1596: Limited Run Arrivals! Castlevania Collection & Battle Axe

These two finally arrived and I'm very happy about that. I feel like I've been waiting for them forever. I thought we would be surprised and get Castlevania for Halloween but the whole Covid and delays couldn't make it possible. Anyways, I'm happy they made their way here as well as Battle Axe which is a really beautiful well made game. Love it and freaking love Limited Run Games!


Finds 1595: Pirate Bebop & Pirate Rocksteady

Here is an awesome set I've been waiting forever! Freaking BBTS takes forever to ship their stuff but on the bright side, you are guarantee to get the items and you don't get charged until they're ready to ship. Anyways, these are Pirate Bebop and Pirate Rocksteady from the TMNT Turtles in Time game. I am very happy with these but I think we are missing something. There are some bad guys from the original arcade game we haven't seen yet and we are already doing toys from the second arcade game. I think they should even things out and bring some bad guys from the first game, then again, the bad guys do get upgraded in the second game so maybe I'm just being too nitpicky about it. I'm so happy to have these overall! 


Finds 1594: Ojama King Ultimate Rare

I got this beautiful card at the event I went to last weekend and I'm so happy with it. As many of you might know, I love Ultimate rares and this is something I needed to add to the collection. I might also just build an Ojama deck for the heck of it. It's such an annoying archetype which perfectly coincides with my personality.

Finds 1593: Famicom Multi-Cart and PC Software

Here are some awesome new additions. Well, I'm mostly talking about the bootleg cart. I don't find these in the wild like ever unless I'm in South America as they're abundant over there. Anyways, I have this one but this is a variance as it's gray! I don't have a gray one, gotta collect all the colors! I also got some PC software that could use a back up on . 


Finds 1592: Floppy Disk Goowill Case

Here is a floppy disk case that came with the key! Isn't that awesome? I can lock all my hentai in there for safe keeping woohoooo!!! I got it at Goodwill for five bananas! Joy!


Finds 1591: Super Monkey Box Deluxe and Donkey Kong Jr for Colecovision

Got some really cool games from an event I attended. This is really cool because I have yet to have these two, The Donkey Kong Jr was so awesome, I honestly only wanted it for the box art which is a little beat up but totally worth it. Super Monkey Ball Deluxe is another awesome game I wanted for my PS2 collection.

Pokemon for the Nintendo 64 in the Shoppe Right Now!

This is something I've been working on for a couple of months and was finally able to complete it. These are the original Pokemon games to play on the Nintendo 64! How is this possible? Well, it's done with a little bit of flashing boards, emulators, and the games. It all came together and with the exception of Pokemon Yellow, they all run great. I also did the second generation below. Please be sure to check out my online store on the link on top of the page or click here

A thing to note about the second gen is that the clock needs to be reset every time you start the game. This is actually an advantage as you can set the clock at any time to catch a Pokemon that only appears during that time of the day. Let me know if you have any questions. Get them while they're still on sale!


Finds 1590: Super Mario Bros Classic, Solitaire Mahjong, School Girl Zombie Hunter, Jaz 2GB Disk, PC Software and Turtles!

I found a new reseller locally and was happy to make a deal with him. I got Super Mario Bros Classic for GBA, School Girl Zombie Hunter for PS4, and the best 1000 Windows games for PC from them and was really happy with the transaction. I also went to a new thrift store and found some PC stuff as well as a Wii game that caught my attention mainly because I'm a fan of Solitaire. I also got two turtles from another thrift store for fifty cents each. I think I have them but couldn't say no to 50 cents turtles! Finally, the most interesting finding of this trip was the Jaz Disk which holds 2GBs! I never heard of this thing. I need to find the drive for it to see if there are any awesome goodies inside. For now, it'll make a show piece. 


Finds 1589: NIS Classics Volume 1, Akira Blueray, Dreams, and Portable Games

Got some really cool stuff recently. The Akira was a must as I have yet to get a physical version of the movie. I also got some portable games such as Dragon Ball Z, Kirby, Tekken, and Professor Layton. They are all quality titles that I didn't spent much for which is always a big plus during a hunt. Finally, went to Gamestop and saw that they had the NIS Classics Volume 1 for a big discount. Add that with my five dollars off coupon and I left the store really happy. It was a good day.
