Finds 1690: GameStop’s Sale is Quite Good, Check Out my Purchases!



You still gotta give it to GameStop for having their sales and actually being good. I was able to pick up every single game on here between 10-15 bucks each. Not only that, I used my five dollar coupon to lower the price of one of the games even further. These are titles I had my eyes on for a while but was waiting patiently  for a sale. Overall, a really good way to pick up some new games. If you notice though, the sales are only going on through the website with the prices on there. If you go to the store, you will find out that the prices are a lot higher. Be on the look out for more sales!

Finds 1689: Sold as is Wiiu with a Nice Surprise, Tomb Raider for Ngage, and a 500gb Laptop Hard Drive

Here is some really cool loot. The Wiiu was sold as is and it didn’t turned on. The problem ended up being the AC Adapter as when I used my own, it started working. As you can see, there was a little gem inside the console which made what I pay for it that much better. I also somehow found a Tomb Raider game for the Ngage, it came complete so I will probably have to scan the manual and upload it on here. The hard drive I picked up because it looks brand new and since I do a lot of computer repairs, it’ll come in handy sometime. Check out the rest of the testing below for the Wiiu. 

A little surprise! 


Wiiu fully working and it came with some extra games such as Super Mario 3D World and Smash Bros.

Finds 1688: Supreme Warrior and Slam City with Scottie Pippen


I was surprised to find these games while thrifting. I think what I like the most is that they are fully complete. I really think whoever got these didn’t even bother to understand or play them much as they look like they haven’t been touched! All the manuals and inserts are in there including a promotional sticker. That’s just amazing and there was no doubt I was leaving them behind. Wonderful loot!

Finds 1687: Micro Machines, PC Software, and Mac Soft!

Finding software has been quite difficult lately, but I was finally able to score some really interesting pieces. Putting aside the usual PC software, I did found a bunch of Mac Soft branded software for Mac. These were especially made for the Mac computers of the time. Some notables are Unreal Tournament and Quake 2. I think it’s really cool to find these type of softwares as they aren’t as popular or known by many. I also picked up a bunch of others, lots to see below.

Finds 1686: Loot Crate #2 is Finally Here! Scrag and Dark Donatello


There was a long wait for these figures and they are finally here. Scrag and the Dark Donatello are some of the most sought after at this point, but not to worry, they are apparently being re-released to the people that missed out on the Loot Crate pre-order. The crate came with a lot of cool extras such as oven mitts and a license plate for your party wagon. Overall, a really cool crate. I already opened them up and placed them in my display.

Finds 1685: ColecoVision Accessories and PSP!


This was a little surprise. The graphics on the box of the Colecovision accessories is awesome. I had to have them especially because they were half off! I thought they were a bit out of my range before but I couldn't say no to half off beautiful 1980s box art. I also found a PSP that looks like it has never been used. The condition is beautiful of this little handheld. I had to recycle the battery as it's no good which is a probably with a lot of PSPs as well as Gameboy SPs.

Finds 1684: Mouser Attack!


The Super 7 TMNT mouser set finally arrived and they are just awesome. I love the ones that come beaten up as they look like they have been through hell. The little bonus is the added Sais that came with them. Of course, I got two sets because you want to have your army of mousers.

Finds 1683: Yu-gi-oh! Mega Tin 2022 Galore!


Every year I try to get the tins for the Yu-gi-oh! TCG in order to try and pull awesome cards. This was no different, well maybe a little bit different as I ended up getting a whole case of them. It was totally worth it as you can pull some awesome cards just look at the photo above! I'll be building new decks as I got my TCG itch back once again. 


A whole lot of packs to open up.

                The tins of the past put together make the tablet of the original series, isn't that awesome?


More cards below and above. So many great pulls! 


Too many goodies to mention. Totally recommending this set.
