I think he meant do they need to be sealed to be considered a 'complete' set.
I thought it would be wise to verify that anyways, all controllers need to be sealed.

We need to add more people to this list!! :) Glad to see conker69 putting this together.

I'll post mine as soon as I have a complete Set. This could still take a while though. All my current Pics are in the controller discussion and post when you buy or sell any game topic.

Good luck DarkLink! The watermelon has come up on ebay several times this year, it's likely we'll see another soon. We'd love to see you snag it and complete the collection. :)

Ice blue seemed to be the most common about a year ago, but I haven't seen one in a while. Good luck rdools! I'll keep an eye out for you, let you know if I see a color you don't have.

Interested to see which of you guys have the Canadian dual print blisters. I know lithium is in southern Ontario, how many did you find locally.

I have a Canadian smoke one at the moment.

Has anyone else on here gotten their blister controllers graded by VGA? Or am I still the only fool to have paid to have them encased in acrylic? :-8

(gold one is not pictured because when I took the picture years ago, the case was damaged and had to be sent back... I currently have the full set graded and sealed)
Posted ImageClick here to check out my N64 collection.

Awesome Conker! How much did that cost? I'm sure it adds up and beyond the cost in the value..

Still short myself on the blisters. I messaged the guy that has those blisters for sale on ebay to see if he'll sell me three of them. No reply back. A clear smoke just popped up on ebay but it's overpriced. Contacted the seller with my offer. They said the price they have is what the last one sold for which is not true. I don't think they know people can look up completed sold listings in the last 90 days.

This is what I currently have

-Watermelon
-Fire
-Grape
-Gold

Looking for
-Smoke
-Green
-Ice

I know completed sets are even more rare but how many Watermelon Blisters are there? Any others besides myself that have it that are not complete? I kind of want to get an idea of how many exist. Only two sold on ebay last year. Not sure if any of you bought one of those. Maybe less than 20?

As for the Smoke being "overpriced", I'd disgree. It's going to sell at $275, it stands without cracks and only minor denting. I'd say if you can get any of them in solid shape with minimal wear at or below $250, you're doing good. At auctions they tend to hover closer to $200-$225, but sometimes you may want to stretch a little to complete a set.

Because any color can go through a drought, spike in price, and then you'll regret missing out. I remember when Grape was perceived as pretty rare (probably 3rd behind Fire / Watermelon), yet it has cooled off substantially. I also remember when Green and Ice Blue were perceived as some of the most common... and yet look, you still need both of them. Prices / rarity / availability are always subject to change, so it is best to not put them off, especially if you're only talking $20-$40 from where you want to be on price.

I was one of the ones that purchased a watermelon controller last year. I can say that there are at least 2 watermelon controllers that aren't accompanied with a complete set. You have one, and I know that Siccooper has kept his and still does not have a complete set. I8ablueskittle did have a complete set, but since sold 1 or 2 of the controllers (if i'm not mistaken) not including his watermelon - so that would be a third controller without a complete set. Jonebone has an insanely good point. The watermelon wasn't even the last blister controller I needed for the set, the Grape was. With that being said, there have been several grapes to have gone up since, so any color could become readily or scarcely available at any time. I mean, a sealed box of stadium events was just uncovered, so anything is possible! Good luck with your search! :yeah:

I didn't hear about the sealed Stadium Events being uncovered. That's pretty crazy. I'd like to start collecting the blisters but I would really be tempted to open them for a fresh controller for the dang MK hotlap thread haha.
