Nice. Reminds me of the time I got the guide for a $0.25 from a pawn shop.

Awesome on the EB guide! Reminded me of finding one in the wild myself ~7 years back, re-reading old Find of the Week threads and seeing how ridiculous some finds were only 5-10 years ago when collecting was a niche hobby is depressing...

I did this for craps and giggles on a random link (got April 2012), and people were debating if a Saturn with 57 games including PDS was worth $550. Today, I think most of us would jump on that.

I literally drove 60 miles round trip on my hour lunch break to pick it up before anyone else beat me to the punch, haha. The Hori GC controller is hard to find too and pretty sought after, so I'm psyched to get both in one go!

Holy crap... that's amazing. Two of the few things I'm still looking to grab to complete my GC collection. The Hori controller looks like it would be the best controller for GameBoy Player but I was surprised they're $100+. Odd someone had that (It was Japan only?) imported but was selling it for nothing.

Wow, amazing find!!! Was the component cable posted in the ad or did you have to ask about it or...?
jholman

The ad was for "gamecube controllers" (picture one was the hori controller and the regular controller). No mention of the cable in the title, but in the description it did say that it was for "the controllers and cables". Then there was a second pic with a huge box of cables (he had multiple listings for different systems). I spotted the component cable and messaged him, and he said basically "I don't know what goes to what, so when we meet just take what goes to the GameCube".

When we met he said he had a junk-hauling business and had a bunch of this stuff and didn't know anything about gaming, so I guess he got all this stuff off someone?

Grabbed this sweet Play Arts Kai - Lightning Returns figure for $10. I see them sometimes fetching as much as $400.

I spend way too much time hunting. I went to the Long Beach swap meet this morning, got there at 5:30am. Took about an hour break, but didn't leave until after 2:00pm. As if that wasn't enough, I got a text from a guy I met recently that sells amazon returns. That's where I found the figure.

How is selling returns from amazon legal? They go back to a warehouse. Are you saying they are sold off after that internally ?

Amazon contracts 3rd parties to process returns. I've seen the same for Costco and Target. I have no idea what the terms of those contracts are, but the product is sold to the general public by these 3rd parties in the form of loaded pallets. I've seen some real crap pallets, like nothing but phone cases. Luck of the draw.

Yeah, I looked up several companies. It's definitely a lottery with what you get and usually have to put in a high value in hopes of recouping costs.

There's a big pin in her foot bottom that I think is some sort of peg for placing her on a stand, but it's really long and slides out.

Every time these 4 for $20 sales come up I end up with a copy of Uncharted 4 raspberry Usually because I am stuck with 7 or 11 games or something, and need one more as filler. It sells for $15+ all day on Amazon, so it's a nice flip to recoup some funds.

So in the past few days...

I bought a refurbished iMac 4K mid 2017 system off the Apple website. Core i5, 16GB ram, 512GB SSD, Radeon Pro 4GB video. When it arrives I check the about menu and see they shipped me all those specs but instead of i5 I have an i7. I called support because my AppleCare wasn't showing up yet. They're ironing that out in the next 48 hours. I mentioned that cpu bit since I figured maybe the shipping mistake caused a different serial number but the serial number checks out. It didn't phase them either. So after they iron out the AppleCare activation to this system, looks like I have a free i5 to i7 upgrade.

Goodwill has been rather meh. I stopped by Salvation Army and found a ton of Electronic/Dance Music CD's for 99 cents each. Then on the way to checkout I spot two Pewter statues from the Smurf's circa early 1980s. $3 each so I buy both. They weigh a ton. Turns out I bought this and this. I'm getting ready to list those on eBay.

Aren't there some cases where certain i5's are better than certain i7's? That one is definitely an upgrade? Sweet deal.

Nice find on those smurfs dude. My goodwills near here (about 4 or 5 of them) are just awful in the last few months. Games are nonexistent (unless it's NHL Faceoff 2001 for PSX), when they used to almost always have some. They MUST be shipping them out for auction. However, I usually still got lucky on electronics once in a while - but not recently. I guess I'll just have to get excited for yard sale season next year.

i5 runs cooler usually. I loaded up some heavy games and the fan never kicked in, didn't break a sweat. It could be because of the SSD and no platter hard drive. This model is fully factory sealed non upgradable. I could open the unit but everything is built in like an iPad so it's pointless.

Found the following Commodore 64 cartridges for 2 bucks each

Centipede
Simons' Basic
Ms. Pac-Man
Epyx Fast Load Cartridge

Also got a complete copy of DBZ 3 Tenkaichi 3 and a CIB copy of Robocop vs Terminator for SNES (with the cool plastic box) for $70

Everything is up for for grabs if anyone is interested, though i'm kinda inclined to hang on to the robocop game just because of how cool the box is. Might trade it though if the offer is right
