Finds 1838: Hitler no Fukkatsu Top Secret for Famicom!

Here is a game that had to be extremely censored when it was brought to the USA. I had to pick it up with the original artwork and box in order to have an interesting piece to show off in my collection. Yes, you have to stop the revival of Hitler. Should I say more? 


Finds 1837: Raystorm HD Collection for Switch

This is a really cool game for the Switch. I love the compilation of shoot 'em ups that keep appearing for the system. We gotta find a way to preserve these classics and I have to thank all the companies that are pushing for that. 


Finds 1836: Bonk for NES

A friend of mine had this in their collection and knew that I was looking to add the good rare games for the NES and gave me a deal on this one! Bonk for the NES is finally in my collection and honestly, I never imagine it would be in my collection but here it is. The game plays decent and it's a lot of fun. I'm a fan of the Gameboy entries too which I played a lot so it's similar to those. Another gem for the collection! 


Finds 1835: Girlfriend Spoils!

I can't go anywhere without her trying to buy me stuff! She's the best! Anyways, I got April O'neil and lots of Yu-gi-oh! Cards! Gotta love being a turtle!

Finds 1834: Limited Run Arrivals! Espgaluda 2 and Rendering Ranger

All new arrivals from Limited Run Games. As always, good quality packaging and uniqueness that we get from their releases. I love their stuff! I can't get enough of it. 


Finds 1833: Enter Captain Commando for PS1

Here is a really cool port of an arcade classic. I remember playing this one in the arcade and then renting it for snes from Blockbuster video. This is a really cool port and way better than the snes version. It's a lot more fun with two players. Let me know what you think! 


Finds 1832: TMNT Set of Toys!

This is a really cool set of another set of turtles. Once again, I believe I'm more excited about the graphics on the box rather than the action figures. Is that weird? Gotta love being a turtle! 


June 19, 2024

Finds 1831: TMNT Mutatin Action Figures!

I love this series of the re-issues. They are just so cool. Back in the day, I believe I only had Leonardo but I honestly don't remember. I might still have the action figure somewhere. Either way, I added Mikey and Don with Rocksteady and Bebop. Gotta love being a turtle! 


Finds 1830: Final Fight 3 Finishes the Trilogy!

The final game of the Final Fight series for the SNES is finally in my collection. This is Final Fight 3 which I rented so long ago and could never really get into it. I will give it another shot but just to be clear, the first in the series is my favorite one. 


Finds 1829: Famicom Bootleg Lot with Tea!

Here are more Famicom goodies from Thailand! The seller sent me all these beauties along with tea! Isn't that unique and neat? I have to make a label for that game up there. Love it! 


Finds 1828: Flintstones Surprise at Dinosaur Peak is Here!

A game I never thought I would have in my collection is actually mine! This is Flintstones Surprise at Dinosaur Peak for the NES. The game is notorious for being rare as it was a Blockbuster rental only game so it was the only way you could play it was to rent it. Overall, the game is a lot of fun which is another reason why I picked this up. I pick up games that are worth a playthrough not just because they are hard to find, it makes more sense to me at least. Overall, I'm really happy with this game and best of all, I got it for an amazing price. 


June 18, 2024

Finds 1827: Mighty Final Fight is Mine!

Here is a game I have wanting to add to my collection for a while. I played it on emulator and even bootleg cart years ago and just always loved the style it has. It was time to get the official NES release to the collection! You played it? 


Finds 1826: TMNT Action Figures! Baby Turtles!

Here are more TMNT action figures! Some of of course re-issues which are cool but the accessory set comes with the baby turtles along with really cool accessories. I am running out of room! Gotta love being a turtle! 


June 17, 2024

Finds 1825: Famicom Lot! Honey Bee Adapter!

Here is a lot I got on eBay! The reason why? Well, I wanted that Honey Beed adapter for the collection as well as a few games I was missing. Yeah, they are all legit official games. Not my style but still love it! 


Finds 1824: Free Gifts from a Friend! Doki Doki Panic !!!

Here is a lot of free stuff I got from a friend. She knew I love Famicom bootlegs and asked if I wanted them so I couldn't say no! This is just amazing and I'm always so thankful for gifts like these. The best part is that it came with a Doki Doki Panic cart which for some reason comes inside another game. Not sure if it's a repro or just a replacement shell as I'm too much of a wuss to open it up. It's really cool though. Thank you again my friend! 


Finds 1823: Movie TMNT Set!

This is a really cool set that comes with the badguys of the TMNT movie. You get the two main new mutants Tohka and Rahzar with Super Shredder and a foot soldier. I think I enjoy the box graphics more than the action figures themselves to be honest. Gotta love being a turtle! 


June 16, 2024

Finds 1822: Shin Megami Tensei V Gift!

A co-worker gave me this and I am very happy to have it. I have heard of the updated version that's coming out for this same title but not sure what differences there will be. Can't say no to free loot though. 


Finds 1821: Super Duper Game Lot!

Here is a huge lot of games from various sources such as Gamestop and Limited Run Games. I have to take advantage of the sales Gamestop has because as much as you might hate the company, you have to take advantage of the sales while they are still around. Besides, with how things are going with technology with everything being moved to digital, you'll need to enjoy these final physical years of gaming. Overall, a bunch of things and sales so be sure to check out the rest of the photos for more details! 


Finds 1820: More Famicom Lot!

Here are more goodies from Thailand! I gotta say, that's becoming my favorite country ever. I would love to go hunt there sometime! Anyways, the highly here is the game Rockin Kats with the name NY Yankees. Other little goodies as well such as Don Doko Don and Tetris. 


June 15, 2024

Finds 1819: TMNT IV Turtles in Time for Super Famicom

I always wanted a CIB copy of this awesome game. This is TMNT 4 for the Super Famicom. It's a really awesome classic that anyone can pick up and play any time. If you haven't played it, what are you waiting for? Gotta love being a turtle!
