Someone else mentioned Ollies to me on here a while back but I've never even seen one hah

Thanks for the recommendation bud. We're fairly close, geographically - where was the Ollies you went to?

@Sid_Ceaser oh nice, I'm only like 40 minutes away from Worcester. I'll need to get out there.

@Kommie Those are the ones I read, the 6 volume set. Really great quality.

The quality of the 9 volume set is ass. It swaps between standard book style paper and some have the glossy comic style.

Nice! GBA is great. I feel like GBA/GBA SP was a console that was neither overrated nor underrated. It had some fantastic games, and got the attention it deserved, and still does.

I've got Ollie's stores near me, have noticed the graphic novel section, that only showed up in the past year or so, they really didn't have that before.

I have been following a thread on a bluray site about Ollies and GN's for a long long time now.

Must be a mileage-may-vary thing.

Seems plausible. I have one in my town and 2 in nearby towns and they will have different wares... I've hardly seen any BDs ever but I don't go a ton. They have more electronics lately too.

I've never seen any blu-rays or dvds at the Ollie's I have been to. Although, the closest to me is over an hour away, so I've only been a handful of times over the years.

Here is a photo of what I picked up:

I found a sealed copy of LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Nintendo Wii for $20 at my local RiteAid. Was not expecting that.

Reminds me of the time I found 3 copies of chibi robo zip lash for 3DS, all sealed, at a dollar general of all places, $5 each. Probably should have bought 1 but I didn't. This was like 6 months ago.

@Sid_Ceaser That's a hell of a haul. That Darwyn Cooke art book and Dark City are badass (and obv so is the other New 52 Batman stuff). But those stickers placed directly on the covers fudging kiiiilllll me. Tell me they're not gross to remove.

Not totally difficult. A little goo gone and a little time.

For $4 I'm not going to care or complain very much. Brand new for $4.

There were a whole mess of hardcover ones that were shrink wrapped. They had some Miller Dark Knight NOIR hardcover for $8.

Definitely. That game's honestly pretty good if you give it a chance. Not without its faults, but still.

I've seen a few of those at my store @Sid_Ceaser, like the bottom row. I've thought about snagging some but with all of the variety I feared falling into a collection hole so I've resisted.

Got a binder full of ps1 games from a local pawn shop yesterday for 60 bucks. There are a few more unpictured but they are all super commons

Condition varies, and some of the discs are dirty, but there were a few Working Designs titles in the mix so I was happy.

Unfortunately a number of the games are missing discs, so if you see a disc here that you need to complete your copy let me know and we can work something out!

Yes, it is only a $9 or $10 DVD, but it sells quickly. I don't mind paying $2 or $3 for it.

Gave a guy a deal selling locally today, for about 10 games, it was only $35. Gave 2 crysis' for pc for free since I thought it might be linked to steam, cities xl platinum free too, he mentioned he had a 2011 version and the server to play is gone, this was 2012, prob same thing, guess you gotta have faith in those that play games. Still, he gave me $30, than said he'll give me some games. He called and we spent about 30 minutes by phone, cuz he didn't message me what he wanted prior on facebook. Might've been a tactic. Still got nhl 08 in very good condition, and see it sells for about $10. Will be a while before I get my money back, but may be worth waiting. And a cd only copy of war chiefs, the age of empires 3 expansion. He said he'd send me the key. Think it was a fair deal, lots of these games idle, and these games, weren't even on ebay from the first time around of getting them, because I had put them aside. Now I recently did a list of all those, and will send them via mailers, no packages, to cut shipping costs on these games and make them at sellable prices.

Anyways, it's Easter. Too many games, haha. And some people get me a little, as this guy definitely got a good deal, but I was checking prices on ebay and picking the lowest ones, since many didn't have prices online on my ads. Always easier to state a price, post and sell, but with all my lot buys, gotta get rid of some, and give the little guy a bit of a deal too, since I recall selling to stores for quick bucks, but with a lot of games, you can wait til some sell but I def gotta get some more deals. Anyways, best of luck to all. See lots of garage sale goer's and flea market patrons, and it's always a good call to keep an eye on what you know. Lego usually, if cheap, is always worth it, and video game stuff. Other stuff, there's a whole history channel for that lol. My uncle left me lots of his vinyl that he bought at garage sales, and made some bucks selling them. Had lots of classics, but yeah, if you buy and collect, or buy to resale, always something to spot. I'm too lazy, will be browsing online lol

Here's their updated listing:
The power gloves is size M and is in working condition with a slight modification to the strap to fit larger arms, glove was mostly used for display purposes. The sensors have some burns in the plastic but they are functional. The game is in working condition with the sticker only slightly peeling from the top. The manuals are yellowed but all pages are still intact. Box is in bad condition.*PRICE IS FIRM*

Exactly where ghostbusters (2016) belongs, it's like they knew the future. And some parts of ghostbusters "peace sign" can go in there as well, if it weren't so tied to my nostalgia

I'd say stay away, but buyer beware. Up to you, honestly. How badly are you wanting it?
