@WanderFan9: Whenever you get around to Secret of Evermore let me know, looking forward to that review becuase you will probably get around it to it before me. And thanks for the tip on SoM2 on who to choose the first time.

@WaveBoy: California was thee coolest place in the 80's. I remember going to Southern California in the summer of '88. Man that was awesome! It was the closest thing to VideoLand here on Earth. Anyway, I still have my original Christmas Fozzie from McDonalds that I bring out every year around Christmas time. Oh, and he is missing a hat in that picture.

Oh I'm ready for garage sale season again. I feel as if there has been a lack of post in here from me.

@Ryno: I still have the Kermit and Miss Piggy as well as Fozzie, and I too bring them out around Christmas time. Every so often I seem them come into my local Goodwill as well. Anyone remember the Land Before Time puppets that Pizza Hut had?

My last "retro" purchase was a rather convincing (superficially, at least) bootleg cart of Final Fantasy V Advance. It was a bit of letdown, considering I've been meaning to play that version of the game for a long time, but at least the seller seemed genuinely apologetic and gave me my money back (not that I spent much on it anyway).

Yeah I had all three of the Muppets stuffed dolls but that's cause at the time my mom was a manager at a McDonalds so I tend to get every Happy Meal toy and stuff like that they offered. Heck I still have a big plastic tote filles with a bunch of them in storage. As for the Land Before Time puppets I only had Littlefoot, Sharptooth and Petrie. Everytime I tried to get the others my Pizza Hut never had them in stock. One of these days I gotta track some down on Ebay.

i got them from ogos retro store of greed. where you "bring in yer old crap, if you dont think its crap, this is where i convince you its crap and i turn around and keep it because i want it and you shouldnt be greedy" thats our motto.

Best store motto ever.

Here's a couple recent pickups of mine: First, since it's been a while ...
Untitled
Another CIB copy of ET! Total ET count is in my sig. My plan for world domination via ET cart ownership continues! HUZZAH!

Also:
Untitled
Keystone Kapers (Atari 2600), Blue Label variant.

I've also got a couple more Blue label variant Activision carts (Chopper Command and Enduro) coming, as I continue to get closer to completion of my Activision Atari 2600 collection. Just around 20 games left and i'll be complete, including all variant label editions. The ones I have left aren't super-rare or anything (I already have the rarest of the bunch, River Raid II and Rampage), but some of them will be hard to find.

Rave Master for the GC for $2.99. It's at least worth it for that much.

I've never seen Land Before Time actually, but I may still have the yellow dinosaur toy around.

@KingMike And have you never seen Denver: The Last Dinosaur either?

@KingMike - you never saw The Land Before Time? Get out!!! I'm just messing with you, one cannot expect everyone to have seen a certain movie or to have played a certain game, so it's cool. But seriously though, if you find the time, you should try to watch it, as it's a really good Don Bluth classic.

I probably saw it on TV a couple times in the early 90s, but I don't remember much except the theme song.

Garage sale season is the Bee's knees. Another man's trash is always wavey's treasure.
I hope to find LIttle Samson For $2.00 and a giant crusty minty fresh bag of Monster in my pocket cool duder collectibles.

Just got a pretty messed up tribal (Urrg!) GBA-SP that I re-shelled in green.
Metal Gear Solid (GBC)
Ghosts and Goblins (GBC)
Speed Ball 2 (GBA)
Super Ghouls an Ghosts (GBA)
Also awaiting delivery of a PurpleTurf GBA from rose colored gaming.

I've only just (least week) found out about rose colored gaming and (the now closed) time walk... Are there any other, high-end, retro, refurb/re-design/re-boxing services out there?

Ahh, more Activision games ...
Untitled
Chopper Command (Atari 2600), blue label variant
Enduro (Atari 2600), blue label variant

Just 26 total Activision Atari 2600 carts left (including variant-label versions) 'till completion ...

Also, today I went Game Chasin' TM, and hit up an antiques store that I discovered about a half-hour away. Slim pickings on the gaming front (but they did have some cool stuff, including a TurboGrafx16 that I was very tempted to get), but I did pick up:
Untitled
Popeye (NES) with Nintendo-branded sleeve
Untitled
Green Game Boy Pocket

And on the non-gaming front, this little purchase that I'm sure @ogo79 will recognize immediately:
Untitled
Presto the Magician from the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon! I didn't even know they made these. There was also a Bobby the Barbarian, but in poor condition so I passed on it.

And finally (not pictured), I also snagged two Pink Floyd LPs (hail vinyl!) in great condition, "The Wall" and "The Final Cut" (for the record - pun intended - Floyd is my second favorite band of all-time, right after The Beatles).
