For now I'm more focused on systems so I only buy games that remind me of the good old days and most of em aren't here yet. I'n the pic I have a sealed DK and a sealed Turok 2. Not in the pic I have a factory sealed box of 6 perfect dark games that I'm gonna send in to be rated as uncirculated.
on the way I have
gauntlet legends
Super Mario 64
Mario Golf
Paper Mario
Mario Kart
and Conkers Bad Fur Day
all factory sealed
Still after a sealed Mario Tennis which is still one of my favorite games ever

Any other games I have are just the cart and for personal use

Hey all, got some games in today. All factory sealed but I have them in plastic slips so it doesn't show. All are NM except maybe the conker I'm not sure about. I think maybe the top is sun faded a little bit cause it seems light. If anyone has one could you take a nice pic of the top side so I can compare.

Also got a blister packed expansion pack, Grape controller, and nintendo power 100

Here are the pics from the Daiei Hawk console and controller. I had better pics from the sides and the console out that I had him send me before I bought but I don't know wtf I did with them. I think i deleted the message. O yea and I found them on ebay Australia.

That's a great story and I can relate. I thought to myself hmm I wonder if there are still new N64's out there and ended up stumbling on lithiums videos. I've been collecting consoles and controllers for a little over a month and it is insanely addicting, rewarding, and fun. One thing I can say is, and I think everyone will agree with me, pick something you love. Wheather or not that is games, consoles, controllers, N64's, or GameCube or all of them. As long as you love it, it will always feel rewarding and not end up feeling tedious. Because believe it or not it does take a lot of time going to swap meets, yard sales, and scowering 4 different ebays multiple times a day if you want the rare stuff. But the time is well worth it every time you make a good find or get that package in the mail. So that's my advice from the salty veteran collector of a month lol.

That was a great story. I love hearing about how and why people start collecting, and its cool that Lithium inspired you. Both Lithium and I have collecting tip videos on our youtube channels that can be great help to a "new" collector. Id recommend checking them out. Here are links to mine and Lithiums:


Mine:

Lithium's (his are in parts, and this is the first part in his series):

@Brodieman -
Yeah, that story does sound quite similar to mine. I already feel addicted to the idea of collecting, and I don't even have anything yet! Haha. I will definitely take your advice with choosing what I love. I don't even have time to mess with something I'm not interested in. :P

Would you mind elaborating on what swap meets are, and what eBay sites you frequent?

I know of only ebay.com and ebay.ca. I live in the US, so do you think shipping will become outrageous at times?

Also, are there any places you guys recommend me frequenting? I know to check eBay, and Craigslist. There is a local game store I know of, and I will probably have a look there every once in a while. There are also like 3 pawn shops on the way to my college. But honestly, I don't expect to find much of anything locally... I have never found anything before, and I have checked many times. (Yard sales, pawn shopping, and thrift store browsing..) So are there any other sites or places I should check? I live in America, so I can't use any local listing sites not based in the US.

Now I just have to convince my friends that I haven't lost my mind... Haha. At first my girlfriend told me that it was a total waste of time, and that I would become addicted and obsessed... as well as materialistic. And that I would simply be wasting money. But I told her that it would make me happy, and that collecting the things are about nostalgia, and about having rare pieces of history that are tied to games that I have spent countless hours enjoying. After that, she said it clearly meant something to me, and left it alone. But her attitude might change either way when I start accumulating stuff.

My mom on the other hand was not convinced at all. And she still thinks it is a terrible idea. I have college to pay for, and no job, so her argument is understandable. But I can't help but satisfy the complete dork inside of me!


Ebay Australia and Ebay U.K. are good too. Swap meets are basically huge yard sales where a bunch of people set up all there stuff to sell. I like to buy carts from them cause I always get a good deal. You can google swap meet or flea market and find some around you they are usually weekends only. If you figure out how to explain what you are doing to the women in your life, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PATENT IT AND SEND 1ME SOME!!!

I love this image the most :wub: most likely because it's the same as staring at over $2000+ of money right there.

For what it's worth, I've redone my controller wall and slightly reorganized my shelves a bit too. I'll take pictures after my latest purchase arrives ^_^
I'm not gonna lie, setting them up like that kinda made me wonder why we need women to stare at :wub:

And who IS that man inside the cabinet?? lol
:blasphemy bat: SHAME ON YOU!!! :blasphemy bat: Why have something so awesome if you're not gonna show it off! :facepalm:
Start checking looking around for something to show off all the sweetness

I believe you guys get to witness first hand the part where I say "Then, things just kinda got out of control." I've started on games now and there are some new games in there. One day I'll show em all on my youtube channel. This is just to show my new display for them and how I decided to display my Nintendo Power/ E3 controller. I added some statues also.

wow!

btw: what sort of rack(s) are you using to prop up those lovely controllers?
something custom-made?
Actually those are just things they make to display plates. You can get em for like 70cents each

It's nice to see you starting on games aswell. What's you're collecting preference, just US NTSC or all regions?
Thanks Dee and Clarky!

ItsOnlyAFleshWound ~ I do enjoy collecting it's just with prices going the way they are I am relieved to not need any more consoles. One of the guys I used for JAP stuff you alreay know, it's luick. I think the other is going to make an account here and the 3rd I'm going to keep to myself for now :phear:

James ~ Thanks! and grats on the recent pick ups

Jon ~ Thanks! I decided I'm not going to go for all the PAL versions. The way prices are and with the shipping it just isn't worth it right now.
