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.

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

Garage sale season is the Bee's knees. Another man's trash is always wavey's treasure.

And even heavier on 'Sore throat Ghost' Egon Spengler figurines with Broken pop up ties.

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:

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).

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong. Also, Lindsey Stirling. Because violin awesomeness.

@Ryno The Land Before Time! What a beautiful franchies of animated films! I love that series with Denver: The Last Dinosaur! ♥ But I prefer only the first, the second, the third, the fourth, the five, the sixth, the seventh, the eighth, the ninth and the tenth of The Land Before Time.

I hope this doesn't sound but you are the only person I have heard that has said that they liked the "other" Land Before Time movies. Foe me I can just only watch the first one. The other hundred we just bad.

@Tasuki - he's probably being facetious and pulling our leg. But if he isn't, I'd be curious to know why he feels about the way he does about the twelve DTV sequels? I'm not saying it's wrong if he does like them, it's his opinion, but even so one cannot help but wonder why?

I dunno, I didn't think Sword of Mana was that good. For a redux of the first Sword of Mana, it felt like a step down in every way except story, and even then the story wasn't as good as some other games on the GBA, such as Swordcraft Story. I'd personally keep my expectations for it low, IMO.

Got it, though I'm waiting to see if I can attempt to get my friend to play a game sometime.

I ordered some game called Super Variable Geo "new" from amazon from a Japanese seller. The game is probably a crappy fighting game but it has one of the most squandered-potential game titles (if anyone is thinking what I am) I couldn't resist based on that alone.

Alright, just got me some Barrel Rolling action with the original Starfox on the Super Famicom:

I also nabbed three LCD games that were previously released as McDonalds Happy Meal toys two years ago at a Japan surplus outlet. Not sure what series the characters are from, but if anyone recognizes them, I'd like to know what they are:
