Finds 1652: Peru Trip 2022 Haul! Amazing clones and games! Boxed Clones!!

Here is all the amazing loot I got from my trip to Peru. this time around, after seven years since my last trip, a lot has changed. You can’t find good loot that easy anymore or at least what I’m looking for to add to my collection but I did get lucky with a couple of things. Let’s take a look at t all this amazing loot!

SNES games are still around so here are some that I got. The ISS Deluxe is legit but beat up. The rest are bootlegs with the circuit boards which means they are higher quality. 

Here are some Famicom games. Some legit and some are bootleg which are my specialty.  

Here are some Spanish Yu-gi-oh! cards! I am going to open them soon! 

Here are some new items! Epic! 

Max Play is a clone which was really popular in Latin America, this console is also known as the Micro Genius in other regions. It’s a really awesome well built console. 

 Here are some Wolfenstein 3D stickers! They are really awesome but I don’t know where to put them yet. I’ll find a spot! 


Finds 1651: Sound Blaster Pro Box! it’s just beautiful!

A close friend of mine sent me this as a surprise! It’s a beautiful Sound Blaster Pro box with the inserts inside! All I gotta do is find the board to complete it. Already have my eyes on some of them. Thank you eBay. 


Finds 1650: Intelligent Qube, an Awesome Addition for the PS1!

Here is an awesome new addition to the collection. Intelligent Qube for the PlayStation. it’s a really neat puzzle game that is always getting overlooked but it’s a classic overall. 


Finds 1649: TMNT Lego Set!

My brother got me these for my birthday! It’s the whole set of TMNT action figures. Each one came with all their weapons and of course, pizza! They are really cool. They also came with skateboards! Tubular! 


Finds 1648: Mexico Trip 2022 More Loot!

Here are some more findings in Mexico City. I found a nice NES bootleg that gives more questions than answers. Also, another bootleg TMNT figure and some Spanish Yu-gi-oh! Trading cards. A nice haul!

Finds 1647: Mexico Trip Loot! TMNT, Spanish Gamepro, and ISS Deluxe

After hitting this open fair in Mexico City, I was able to find some really cool things. I always wanted the bootleg TMNT action figures but a lot of vendors had them quite beat up until I found this one that looks really cool and in great shape. The Gamepro magazine is in Spanish and that's really amazing. The ISS Deluxe game was a little beat up but the price was freaking amazing I had to say yes! It's totally awesome! I have more loot coming! 


Finds 1646: Mouser Packs!!! NECA TMNT

Got my two packs of mousers! I definitely need to make my display bigger in order to get more stuff together. I think I have an idea and will move forward with it! I'm excited! Will have photos of this project once it's complete. 


Finds 1645: Beat Up Pokemon Red and Cool Controller

Here are a couple of new findings which are nothing great but really cool overall. I'm always looking for new controllers for my collection and this one is one of them. It's a really cool controller that even though it doesn't have analog sticks, it's still really cool. The game below is none other than Pokemon red, I'm sure you could tell. 


Finds 1644: Monkey Island Madness

Found this at the thrift store! The disc was by itself so I had to find a case for it. I believe this one brings multiple games in one so I'm happy to have this in the collection. Monkey Island is a classic!

Finds 1643: Sukoku, Portable Goodies, and a Mystery Game!

Some awesome goodies I was able to find at the thrift store. I definitely love getting Power Quest as it's one of the most memorable Gameboy Color games I've played years ago and it just sticks to my mind. It's not the best game, but it's really fun. I also got Zelda for the Gameboy color although this cart doesn't work, I will find a way to make it run. Some other goodies as well as Super Mario Odyssey which is a game I wanted for a while. Finally, a mystery game! What game is it? Check below!

It's Pokemon Trading Card game for the gameboy color, not bad!


Finds 1642: Expert Software and Vintage Capture Card

Here is a full PC style loot finding! I love Expert Software and it's always great to find. I believe I'm trying to collect all of them, I need to find a list! I also found this capture card that's from the PS3/Xbox 360 days but you can also connect it to your PC to record AV output consoles which means you can record your old consoles such as the NES, SNES, Genesis, etc. 


Finds 1641: Ridge Racer DS, Professor Layton, Power Punch 2, and Memories

Here are some random findings! Power Punch 2 famicom bootleg is really odd. I also got two DS games and they are unique and fun. The memory cards hold the memories of gamers from the past. I will make something of them one day! 


Finds 1640: Pokemon Gold & Silver, Akiba's Trip, Futurama, and Xenogears Missing Disc!

A big haul today from all sort of different places! Lets start with Xenogears, as I got a copy of the game years ago (I forgot where) which is missing the second disc so after hunting for one for a while and forgetting about it, I was finally able to get one for an amazing price. Moving along, I got Akiba's Trip on clearance from Amazon thanks to a friend that gave me the info on it. It was really cheap! Finally, I got Futurama DVD boxsets! I want to collect all of them because I love this series so much. I also got Pokemon Gold and Silver CIB shockingly for a decent price at the thrift store. They are so awesome and definitely a blast from the past! Definitely better loot than other days! 


Finds 1639: Alwa's Awakening 8-bit Edition

Now, I know I've gotten this game in the disc form but they released it on an 8-bit cartridge for the NES which is actually really cool. Usually new retro games are made in a way that they have freedom and forget the limit of the console they were intended for, not in this case. I got the cart form of this game and I'm ready for play through it! Get yours today! 

All the extras that come with it!
