Thrift Stores...I hit the same three up on the way home from work Monday thru Thursday and the stuff I find is just ridiculous sometimes. I'm in there 15 minutes tops and I walk out with stuff like a complete Matchbox Voltron for 3 dollars (now on my desk) or Lego Could City Boba Fett (2 times I've found that, including yesterday too, but those are toys not video games)--I don't go on Fridays because of date night with my fiance--but it gets pretty funny sometimes what i find.

Hmm. Well, I don't know then. I thought transparent yellow VMU's were supposed to be one of the hardest non-japanese VMUs to find.

Don't add to my problems by pretending my past views are still held in the present. I do not have any patience for that. Feel free to ask me what I think now.

I think I just beat my own Find! One of the sellers is getting tired of losing money on Amazon Fees and did not wanted to just dump history in the garbage. Offered the entire lot to me for VERY CHEAP! So what am I going to do with 50 copies!!?? :oops: :?:

Good idea, nephews and nieces could add it to their collection of the DVDs. If this pans thru, I'll donate some to the local Public and College libraries. I think the Aero Space Museum too since its a great archive.

@ noise - Help me! My wife is going to kill me when she sees a huge box delivered, not because of the little bit of money spent, but more stuff piling up. :lol:

I can't work out how to multi-quote so...

The rarity, condition and price are why I posted the yellow VMU in the other thread.

The link posted to the "only" seller who has them on ebay was included in the original post.

Feel free to post link/s to other places these can be sourced in new condition.

Everyone has thier own opinion, mine hasn't changed. :)
