The General Finds Thread!
01. Jul 2006 at 15:16
 
Since not all finds end up in their own threads, I think it would be nice to have a thread for posting smaller finds (i.e. single items, etc) from any place other than eBay...game stores, ads, other websites, etc!

I'll start off with what I got today and yesterday:

another Flintstones 2 PAL cart!
a CIB Logic 3 Sigma-Ray NES joystick
and DW 4 + Lolo 3 with laminated exrental boxes (both for only 18 euro shipped!)

Smiley

Post your finds!

Joust used to post all his finds in one continuous thread...I always thought that it was a nice idea. 

By the way, nice finds!

Thanks Smiley

Yeah, I always like to read about people's finds, but many collectors don't post them unless they scored a ton of items for a very good price.  This thread can be used for any and all finds, especially the smaller ones that people feel don't belong in a new separate thread.

lol i figured id end up teling the story lol. A blurp ball is like these little Rubber monsters that they made back in the early 90's/ i had a bunch of them when i was a kid but never seen any at a flea market or yard sale for the past 10 years lol. I was like 10 years old last time i saw one. But anyways they had all kinds of different ones and you put like this little torpedo (sometimes they were like other little round monsters.) in its mouth and squeeze it and it shoots it out. But me and my friend used to always put it on the ground and jump on them and they would shoot out like torpedos lol. They actually left DENTS in my walls of my old house they used to shoot out so hard lol. Anyways they could really rezult into some serious eye injuries and bruises lol. but it was defintely cool to come across them lol.

Nice finds guys!

I've been picking up some multis lately for pretty decent prices, but nothing really spectacular.  I did buy a complete CIB Micro Machines with all inserts for around 20$ shipped from a German guy recently, so that wasn't too bad.

My weekend finds:
Goodwill:
-Family Feud $3

Savers:
-Magic The Gathering ~100 cards $.99
-Mega Man 7 SNES $4.99
-Sega Genesis Model 1 $2.50

Flea Market:
-Zelda 2 $1
-Controller $1
-Sealed Advance Wars for GBA $11 (I put it on Ebay right away!)
-Sonic 2 for Genesis $.50
-Samurai Showdown for Genesis $.5
-Micro Genius Famiclone with 2 controls, AV, AC adapter + 2 famicom multicarts with a ton of good games. (one has 22 uniques, the other has 32+ uniques) $12

Overall a good weekend.  Smiley

Update:
The first multicart is a 166-in-1 with 22 unique games, pretty standard.
The second multicart however is a gem, it is a 212-in-1 cart with *82* unique games including custom menu work and possibly a few custom games: there is a rock, paper scissors strip game, some awful version of frogger and a port of sega columns.

This morning I went to the dentist to get 5 cavities filled. To cheer myself up I went to the goodwill a few blocks over and got for $12.97:
- Addam's Family loose
- Yo Noid! complete
- Adventures in the Magic Kingdom and Rescue Rangers super-complete (like warranty cards and coupons)
- Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for PS1.

I was happier.
