Strange, I've never seen a "green" Game Boy cart. Bought plenty of brownish games for cheap.
I did once see a EU Hammerin' Harry GB cart, which I've only later been told even with a bad label I should've bought as the game is supposedly super-rare.

@the_shpydar: Looks like an awesome place, wish I had place like that near me.
@WaveBoy: Yeah stock photo ebaying is sketchy man. I took a chance one time and got a CIB TMNT IV Turtles in Time with the color manual, Made in Japan version and no lame Farley Fruit Snacks on the manual for $25. I'm thinking I will not press my luck and just quite while I am ahead. Anyway, let me know how it is if you haven't been mutated by it.

I picked this up for $10 at the local retro store. I was surprised to find a nice condition CIB NES game for cheap around me. I never really have luck at the brick and mortar stores. Jaleco games are pretty awesome I am discovering, well other than boring Bases Loaded.

Jaleco NES games never did seem to be huge demand games.
Though I think Shatterhand seems to have become in demand (though the value on Whomp 'Em seems to be kind of over the place on ebay.)

Well, I ordered that 2010 Street Fighter, not SF4, but the one where scientist cyborg ninja Ken will die repeatedly the first enemy in the game!

It's that time again ...

Legit SEALED copy (i.e., no B.S. fake shrink-wrapping or re-glued box)! The highlight of my E.T. empire thus far.

Major props to @ogo79 for giving me a heads-up on the auction for this one!
(@ogo — you saw what the list price was — can you believe no one else bid on it? sealed copies usually list for 2x or 3x what I got it for!)

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong. Also, Lindsey Stirling. Because violin awesomeness.
Current E.T. count: 33 Copies. 3 Sealed, 14 CIB, 16 Cart-Only.

wow it already got there?
yeah what i did was threaten the entire database of ebay by telling them not to let anyone bid on it or i was going to spam email all of them all a pic of good ole jumpy garmentless. no one wanted anything to do with that, it was the surefire way of reserving that et game.

Anybody want to get me an Atari 2600 for my upcoming 29th bugs bunny birthday blowout? Need to plop in Halloween for this Halloween October. Wouldn't mind revisiting PitFall either. I'll make sure to play it at night with a recording of crickets chirping in the background to get the full effect.....Scratch that, to get the full effect I'd need a crusty vintage wood panel tube tv from the early 80's.

Again with the Golden Corral.
Well, if it's anything like it's arch-nemesis Old Country Buffet (and I presume that applies to any other Buffet Inc. restaurant), might as well be eating cricket-chow.

@WaveBoy: Still no Atari 2600 yet? Does Skeletor have you locked up at Snake Mountain somewhere? Anyway, I just did a search for "Atari 2600" on eBay and saw all the tantalizing things available! Also, so cheap too compared to SNES stuff. When ever I am super satisfied with me NES and SNES collection I may just look to add to my Atari collection. I absolutely dig the late 70's early 80's flavor. Do you remember iron-on t-shirts?

Don't want to lurk moar, so two questions:
1) By retro, you mean original cartridges and consoles, or is Virtual Console also acceptable?
2) Is GameCube "retro" yet?

If the answer to 1) is positive, then I say Super Street Fighter II:The New Challengers (Wii Virtual Console)
If the answer to 1) is negative, then I say 007: From Russia with Love for Nintendo GameCube.
If the answer to both 1) and 2) are negative, then I would have to say Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, the original Game Boy cartridge I bought over two years ago.

It probably would've been cheaper to buy obscure platformer Oscar as the multi-part DSi game on eShop than to buy the single Super Nintendo cart on eBay, but I did it anyways.

Here are my personal thoughts:
1) By retro, you mean original cartridges and consoles, or is Virtual Console also acceptable? I say original cartridges and consoles since we already have specific VC sections on NintendoLife.
2) Is GameCube "retro" yet? I don't consider it so but for this site yes. Pre Wii is retro.

Showing my b/c PS3 some love with some PS2 games that contain classic retro games. Also got the Genesis version of Castle of Illusion for preordering the remake.
