The Lack of E.T truly disturbs me.
When are you going to get Jim Henson's The Christmas Toy on VHS or DVD?

I found it at a Mega Mall for $15.. figured why not, look like a decent collectors item at that price. One sold recently on eBay for $62.00.. I'll be holding on to it though.

Oh yeah won another auction on shopgoodwill.com. This time a working Black Sports Edition Dreamcast for $15. It comes complete along with a copy of some Sonic game and two controllers. Not sure if I want to hang on to this or resell it.

Picked up The Mafat Conspiracy for NES and Hot Shots Golf 2 for the mighty PlayStation today. Can't wait to give both of them a play.

Lol, I'm actually getting a bit more discriminating with getting boxed ETs; if it's not true complete (or at a very good price at near-complete), I've been holding off. "True complete" is kind of hard to come by, since it seems the vast majority of "complete" boxed copies don't actually include the Atari Games Catalog and/or the 1-page insert ad for Raiders of the Lost Ark. Pretty much if the copy doesn't have at least the manual and "Getting ET home fast" insert, I pass on it.

Eventually. Now that Christmas has passed (and I generally don't like watching Christmas stuffs off-season), there's less of an urgency. Just a matter of time though.

Nice, I picked that up a few weeks back. Aside from just a few minutes playing to make sure it worked fine, I haven't played it yet, but definitely looking forward to some more Duke Togo action.

@Tasuki if you want sell it let me know. I been wanting to get the sega sports edition for awhile. I saw that same auction and thought about going for it but I was after that Nomad. Got beat out by $1 in last 10 seconds.

@RancidVomit86: Will do. I am kinda on the fence right now. I really like the look of a black Dreamcast over the white one but then again I know how much these can go for and it's just nuts. If anything I will keep it for a bit and make sure it runs good, I know it said working but I dont want to sell it to someone and then have it stop working after a week. But yeah if I decide to sell it I will keep you in mind.

@WaveBoy I never would have, lol. It's mine now though, it actually still has it's original plastic wrapper that it came in, too. One day I'll have a room where I can set up a collection and might put the mat to use. For now, it'll stay wrapped up and packed away. It is kind of cool at least, for a floor mat. Heh.

back in the day when i was a younger vampire hunter i used to get this toy frequently. i think i had glo bones around 3 or 4 times throughout my childhood.
definitely one of my favorite toys holding sentimental value i ever had and thats saying a lot. i remember getting him for around 3 or 4 dollars at the store back in the 80's.
these past few years i have been checking him out on ebay looking into getting him again and adding him to my game room...ebay was asking around 90$ for an opened one. i used to think it would be awesome to find one at a garage sale...but today it happened...i found him on top of a garbage can. complete with all his weapons and all. to anyone who knows of this particular toy you know it is the best one in the whole series.

So two Sundays ago (16th) I imported two Nintendo 16-bit games: one SFC game from Japan and one SNES cart from Europe (a first). Since the latter hasn't arrived as I type this (hopefully it'll turn up this week), I only got the former. The SFC game I got was Super Bomberman 3, and while I won't say I'm a big Bomberman fan (I do like the NES original, Bomberman '93, and the platforming spin-off Bomberman Hero to a point) I have been itching to try some more in the series lately. And from what I've played, it's good, imo. Very colorful with catchy music, I like the way that it plays and the fact that there are varying animal helpers (one of them even jumps). I haven't finished it yet (I'm up to the boss battle on Planet 3), but I'm having fun with it atm. As we speak, this is the only chapter in the Super Bomberman quintilogy (or saga, to be more proper, as there are five iterations), but if I'm in the mood I may take into consideration experiencing another one of these (whether it be any one of the two previous games that did get a Western release, or whether it be any one of the two latter games that have remained Japan-exclusive). Who knows?

As for the PAL cart, I think I'll reveal its name once it comes, but if it doesn't come soon I may share what it is in a future post. What I will say about it is that it's a PAL-exclusive.

There's a couple PAL-exclusive SNES games I've wanted but avoided because they're a bit more of a pain to get working on an NTSC console than Japanese games (and I hear in general PAL SNES games are more expensive).

For about $15 and shipping, I got General Chaos for Genesis, complete. Wanted to try it after hearing it's one of the better somewhat-obscure games. I'm guessing that was a good price.

I'm still kicking myself for selling my Mint US CIB copy of Jack Bros for $100, which is now going for over $400. Should of plunked that sucker in a plastic box and buried it in Kevin's backyard within the soily' depths of VideoLand!
