I knew one hour into the IT remake that they were going to save the adult half for another movie. Right now castings have not started and speculations are that they will start filming next March. So we probably won't see the second half until 2019.

I really didn't keep up with it. Years ago it was announced they were making a remake, and then I heard about the release date earlier this year. That was it.

I would definitely get that dumped. There's no prototype versions of the game out there as far as I know, you might have something different from the retail version.

Speaking of prototypes, I recently picked up a Clash at Demonhead protoype in my request for damaged cartridges/labels. I'm not sure the seller realized what it was and I didn't until after I bought it/did a bit more research. Pretty neat, but a bit more common I think. I didn't notice any differences in play, and it actually has a famicom board with the adapter piece.

Well I hope he'll be willing to dump it, and hopefully release it.

I don't think there's a US proto dump, just a Japanese one...

I'm not sure I understand what you mean/are getting at. With the adapter in there, it does seem like the famicom piece is the actual prototype, if thats what you mean.

I'm saying that you might have an early version of the game that was burned onto a JP board, then stuck onto an adapter. But for all we know, it's the same as retail.

Currently I'm only aware of a proto dump of the Japanese version and the main difference is some enemy graphics.

It's not a cart. It's when you take the contents of the game and upload it to your computer.

Yea, you can't end that story there. Craigslist (like) go bad? Actually robbed or bought a busted item?

Someone takes the cart, copies the data on the chips, and compares it to other copies made from retail carts. There's a good chance the game is the same as retail, but you have to be sure. :)

Might have been someone who was upgrading/downsizing and didn't wanna go through the hassle of reselling it. You can find alot of 'free' stuff if you look hard enough. Garage sale leftovers, people looking to get rid of large CRT's, etc.

Try eBay. It's always a good place to start for spare parts. Would cost you about 2-3 + shipping though, if not 5 w/ free shipping.

You said yours was a Slim, right? Those came in 120, 160, and 250GB, if I'm not mistaken. The one I linked is for a Slim.

Edit: I misread, yours is SuperSlim. Sorry.

Someone posted it on OfferUp, just wanted rid of it because they bought a new LED set.

For being a thin TV, I can't believe how heavy it is. I can barely lift it by myself. We have a new-ish 51" Plasma upstairs, and it's no problem with one person. This 43" weighs a ton.

It's a weird pixel ratio, but still around 720p. It looks really nice, and sounds great with the large detachable speakers. I plan to hang it in the basement near the pool table and foosball table.

Honestly wasn't sure if the seller was going to ship this when I bought it. They did however and I got it today. Good deal by at least half price, could probably clear $200 with patience. However I am keeping it all for myself.

Had a good find at my local Goodwill yesterday. They got a bunch of Danbury Mint diecast vehicles in, in and out of the boxes. They're pretty cool, very very highly detailed replicas of 1920's and 1930's delivery trucks, from Coca Cola, Morton Salt, Budweiser, etc. The prices were $12.99 and $14.99, I picked up all of them and it came to around $125 with my military discount.

Today wasn't so good. Took a drive to Delaware to hit up some Goodwill's and didn't come up with much. Found a few nice things but they were either too expensive or broken/missing pieces. I managed to find a Wii w/ hookups, Wiimote, nunchuck, and classic controller for $5. Haven't tested it out yet, but more than likely I'll just mod it.

There was a stack of Snes games at a goodwill today during lunch, mostly trash, but I did find a copy of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Fighting Edition, got it for 5 bucks. It had some label damage so i'm not sure if the stack had already been picked through and it had been left behind or if a reseller was dropping off their unsellables there or what, as I never really see cartridge based games at goodwill anymore. Regardless, pretty cool.

My guess is the GW trains its employees to identify them and send them to corporate to put on Goodwill's auction site. I don't believe for a second that the only games donated to my GW are sports games and other shovelware.

Might also be that people trade them into GameStop. They take retro games now, right?

Oh word? I didn't know you could do that.

I got an email that Goodwill will start having 50% off items of a particular sticker color. Will be interesting if my Goodwill makes changes. I think now all they do is just randomly use whichever sticker is nearby.

GW here does half off a color chosen by the store manager every Sunday and Monday.

I'd like them to pull a Salvation Army move and choose a half off color every day.

I'm not seeing where to look for participating stores on Shop Goodwill.

EDIT: Got it, you have to search by location in the search fields.

I'd like them to not see color, just gently used items at reasonable prices.

My Goodwills still charge $5(!) for Blus and $3 for CDs/DVDs. TV box sets were $10 until a few months ago, now they are $5. Will be glad to see these go down if they are the right color sticker.

I don't even bother looking at Goodwill anymore, they sell everything good online.

I like how Goodwill now uses a #MyGoodwillFind hashtag. Now they can keep tabs on what stores are selling things for and learn what they need to hold back on putting on the sale floors.

... depending on what the blu-ray is, $5 is a decent price.

I did pick up Willow on Blu-Ray there. Probably my only good find. Any price can be a good price depending on what you buy, but $5 as a set price no matter the movie? Way too high. I see movies all the time I would like to own, but am not going to pay $5 for.

I now only look in the CD section in case a PC or PS game got put in there by mistake. $3 is way too much for those as well.

How can you check? I can't find anything on the website.

You can search by location, advanced search option somewhere on the site

My goodwill puts all the video games in lots that end up going for above ebay prices.

Wow. Apparently, the stores near me do put their games on the website. That's complete bullcrap.

I think that could become a real issue. A good portion of their foot traffic is people that are "treasure hunting". Take away the ability to actually find a treasure and their is little motivation for those people to ever enter the store. While this doesn't hurt them on the sale of their treasures, people impulse buy while they are looking. On my last stop, I ended up picking up a lab coat and blue wig. They weren't a great deal, but it's getting close to Halloween and Rick & Morty seems like it might be a good option for this year.
