Curiosity Shop, no. Goodwill, yes. I meant to say thrift store.

@CountWavula: Sorry Holmes, if you are paying double brick and mortar stores on Ebay, then you are using eBay wrong. Retro themed stores are overpriced if you ask this this guy.

Keep in mind, that i use eBay Canada and it's severely lacking in terms of having domestic canadian sellers(For ex, you'll have maybe 30 US sellers selling Double Dragon II and maybe 2 from Canada or NONE.lol), to the point where i'm always buying from_US_ sellers and having to wait at least 12 business days to receive my funkalicious' item which is always a bit of a pain in the baxter stockman tooshie.

I may have been taught well by master splinter, but my patience with purchasing items from the US at this point is ultimately BAD DUDES. I struggle to find good deals unless there's some bidding to be had.. Anyhoo, the downside to eBay aside from not getting your item instantly is that you're looking at a screen, scrolling down a web page with absolutely everything at your fingertips & anything can be had with the touch of a button. That hunt, just the fun in actually going to a thrift store, swap meet ect is totally Null and finding that hidden treasure or surprise is lost. Either way, i still use both. eBay's obviously more convenient and you don't have to waste Gas money haha, but it's not the same. Besides it's always more fun to get some sun or your face and communicate with them NintenZoids and retro toy fanatics.

But yeah, sweet buy. Breath of Fire's BoxArt sends me back to an early 90's vortex of when nintendo was so super.....Plus that inferior genesis with it's step down quality and awkward bulky black boomerang controller. I was never a big RPG fan, but i johnny blazed & gazed while my friend took on many of the SNES RPG classics such as Final Fantasy III(The most amazing imo), Earthbound, Super Mario RPG and Secret of Mana which is my personal favorite as it's not turn based. My michaelangelo ADD at the time didn't have an anchovi of a problem with that one! It managed to get past my Mario & mega man 'only' mentality. ......ribbit

Denver: The Last Dinosaur, you know. An U.S. -French cartoon. That cute dinosaur like the skateboard and the guitar. When I've seen the first episode to the Dailymotion site (Only in French version) the last year, I've not seen again an episode anymore for more 15 years. After, I can't grow tired of that series anymore. That's why I already bought these five volumes in DVD.

I've seen episodes. I got hearts on eyes ♥

My latest Retro Purchase is none other than 8-Bit Xmas 2013 from Retrousb. A new Homebrew game for the NES, where the cart is more interesting than the game itself. They are available until end of December.

Nice! Ahhh the dreamcast, from it's beautiful name, great logo, wonderful system design, unique looking controller, the innovative VMU which was ahead of it's time + Online felt far more next gen than the PS2 ever did which essentially felt like a PS1 dipped in black paint with more horse power. Anyhoo, You need to get on the first Power Stone stat! I'm still baffled that Capcom decided to ditch the franchise many years ago. I was never too crazy on the 4-player frenzy that was power stone 2, but the original was far more intricate and an amazing launch title to show off to your friends.

The Dreamcast launch brings back some pretty wonderful memories! Too bad the hype train that was the DVD playing PS2 completely sent it to the ghosts 'n goblins Grave.

@CountWavula: The PS2 didn't do anything to the Dreamcast Sega did it to themselves. Sega just couldn't repair the damage that the Saturn launch did that and the whole Genesis add on fiasco.

The Saturn did better in Japan, but Sega put another nail in the coffin when they told Japanese devs to stop supporting it because Americans weren't buying them.

@KingMike: Yeah thats what a co-worker of mine says too. He lived in Hawaii at the time of the Saturn and the DC and he said that alot of the best Saturn and DC games NA never got, he only got them cause he lived in Hawaii.

Dang, i can't find my Camera cable. I want to take some snappies of some of the retro goodies i picked up down at Toy Trade-....ahem, i mean videoland! uh, hehehe.. Anyhoo! I recently Just scored a loose TMNT Shredder figure off eBay!

More Turtlelicious' eBay stock photo's from yours truley.....ribbit. I can't wait to get my NintenPower paws on this oh so nostalgic plastic treat that i've obtained from my rascally pee wee turtle days. Yet Even looking back, i was always a little bothered by Shredders look....He looked almost NOTHING like he did in the cartoon, since when was he ever shirtless? Ah well, the action figures themselves ended up looking like a merger between the comics and original cartoon series and nobody ever seemed to complain. lol
