I just got myself a practically new Famicom Edition Gameboy Micro! It's the Japanese version and it's so beautiful, I almost don't want to play it out of fear of messing it up somehow. Havin' a blast playing through Yoshi's Island and Aria of Sorrow though. :3

This may not be a purchase, but I find my SNES games. :)
My mom kept them in a box with a lock when I was a little kid. Finally find them the lock was easy to open. Just need to buy myself a new SNES.

I'm not the biggest RE fan, but Code Veronica's good stuff, IMO. I love the atmosphere and setting. Hope you enjoy it.

I got them all for $5 a piece. Those are photos from around the web but that's what mine look like. What's cool about them is that they have the New for 92 5th anniversary logo on them. I remember getting these figures for Christmas in 1992 and I still have them but its nice to have the CIB ones.

@Tasuki: Nice find. $5.00 for those is a great deal.

Finally got a copy of Metroid II though it's the lame player's choice version. Been waiting for the right price for a complete copy for awhile.

I hit gold today. I walked up to a garage sale and the guy had a platinum Gamecube in it's box and he saw me looking at it. He walked over to me and asked if I was interested so I said yeah how much? My jaw dropped on his reply. He literally said "Ummmm...I don't know...how about a dollar?" I told him that sounds more than fair and gave him a dollar. Walked away overly happy. By far possibly my best garage sale pick up.

It's a stellar game. I used to play it a ton back in late 90's and I'm not huge into JRPG but it is one I will stand by.

That's good to know. Guess I'll have to look into it.

Woa, now that's a killer deal! 5 bucks a pop? I ended up droping $25 + Shipping for this little bugger(aka...Sewer Surfin' Michaelangelo. I never owned that figure as a child, instead I had Sewer 'Swimming' Donatello, which was one of the many figures included in my daily vintage Battle Royal Bubble Bath BlowOut matches. :P

Untitled

But it's also most likely because this was one of the more popular and wanted turtle figurines. Who could pass this baby up? It's quite possibly the most gnarly/surftastic toitle toy there is!

Who is that last fleuroscent green gator/Gecko dude at the bottom? That has easily got to be my favorite of the lot. It looks like a mutated Mondo Gecko with the need to feed........On Turtle pies. ;) Really though, for the most part...When it comes to the TMNT cartoon series i'm really only familiar with the first 3 seasons including most of the figurines, even though Playmates created a SLEW of random cuncoctions of their own, like my personal favorite.....Pizza Face! :o Which was easily one of my favorites, hoping one day that he WOULD make into the cartoon series. Never happened, but i hear he made an appearance in one of the comic book series, i think...

Untitled

By the way, have you watched any of the final season of TMNT? I couldn't stand the couple of episodes that i watched which were an added bonus on my first season of the original TMNT cartoon series on DVD....They changed the sky to orange, the villain sucked, the new sidekick character sucked and the new look for the turtles....well, yeah it sucked!.I think i'll stick with the first 3 seasons, and maybe dip into 4,5 & 6 just for kicks!

@Waveboy: That one on the bottom is actually a king cobra named Scale Tail. I remember Sewer Surfin Mike as well and whats funny about that one to me is that was the only one I had from the sewer surfin series. As for Pizzaface I remember him too but he was one of the figures I never owned. I remember that my friend at the time had him. But yeah towards the end of the era they had some really weird ones. I remember a few of them like that one sumo wrestler named Tattoo.

theres this girl at the corner store that i go to a lot, like every night. she tells me about how people leave/forget purses, phones and wallets at the store counter and other customers take it or say its theirs. the other night she told me they stole the public toilet from the outside store restroom lol.
well, a few nights ago i actually lost my credit card. i checked all under my car seats and all that. i went back up there and she was holding my credit card in her hand and said she tried to call me to let me know i forgot my credit card. this store is a real bad location lol. if some donkey-bag would have got a hold of my card they would have had a field-day with it. anyways, i know she likes snes games, she plays them every night, and i know she doesnt have super mario all stars, its a game shes been needing, so i just ordered if for her for being an honest person.
do good, get good, do bad, get bad.
and to think today is my birthday, and here i am, giving gifts to other people. it makes me feel good regardless.
keepin it trill :*
