CIB Gyromite with Import Adaptor - $3.99 Used Movie store
If the seller only knew! I now have three import adaptor Gyromite carts. The instruction book has details on the NES ROB Robot and the cardboard box even has the hang tag intact. 8)

George Ebert in seeing a bad welding job wrote:Paint hides a multitude of sins.
So does a black marker, the cardboard box is in great condition except for the corner edges. A sharpie easily fixed that. As for the game cart, immaculate condition with a very shiny label! Cracked open the cart case, the screws literally had a snap of never removed feel to them. A nice clean import adaptor and Famicom PCB inside. :D

Note the dark blue robot icon on the game cart. The manual and box are purple.

Wii Blastworks - $5.99 Gamestop
http://www.gamestop.com/wii/games/blast ... troy/14369
SHMUP based of the PC game TUMIKI Fighters. A shame this game didn't appeal to a larger audience, the custom level editor. Free downloads of user made levels and unlimited styles of SHMUPS to play.

Reviewed at my Wii gamecube thread: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=30455&p=542817#p542817

A huge library of SHMUPs easily downloaded. How about a side scroller Geometry Wars!

Star Wars Art Lithograph - Free
A followup to the Star Wars Behind The Magic I recently purchased. It turns out only 1st editions of the Behind The Magic include the Yoda Art Print Lithograph, the seller was kind enough to send me his personal copy. The original shrink wrap from the Behind Magic box makes a great scratch protector for the lithograph.

Artist Website: http://www.ralphmcquarrie.com/gallery_1 ... index.html

As for that huge lot of Star Wars Magic I might be receiving? PayPal transaction is completed, I convinced the seller to keep a few. Now I'll be getting 40 EXTRA COMPLETE COPIES, oh the wife is going to kill me. There is an interesting tale how the seller acquired so many, I'll post that when I get the crate. :D

Cropped and reduced to fit the 256k size limit. The full size makes a nice wallpaper. You can Right Click to see this a little larger, sorry I could not include a the huge original pic.

Local Salvation Army find yesterday netted me two CIB Wii games.

Overlord: Dark Legend - $3
Saint - $3

The price is extraordinary considering they sell sports games for $4.50 each.

Nice find! What is the mod?

vlame wrote:damn CRTGamer, when you gonna hook it up?
If you mean ROB, it won't work with a HD CRT. I modded it for a direct control, a different though harder way to play of Gyromite. :D

Mechblue wrote:Jumping Flash 2 (complete)
Good finds! PS1 Jumping Jack Flash 2 is unique, reminds me of other jumping or bounce style game, an old DOS PC game called Continuum.

The day started off promising with a good find at my first stop, but didnt get anything else the rest of the day.

Got:
Tempest 2000 (CIB, Saturn)-$2
Sonic 3d Blast (CIB, Saturn)-$2
NES arcade stick-$2
And the worst looking arcade stick I have ever seen, but it was for the Saturn so I picked it up anyway, Nyko brand -$4

Im actually excited to try out Tempest since I have heard so many good things about it on the Jaguar, like it being the only game worth getting lol.
