Finally been able to get around posting the lot for my entire Gamecube Collection. Most of these games are in very good condition, black label, and contain most, if not all, original contents when obtained. If you need a more detailed list of what's in the lot then I am open to messages. (To the messages asking for individual games, please give me a few weeks before I decide to split it).
As for what's not included based on the pictures are:
- Pikmin 2 Game Disc
- Sonic Adventure 2 Battle Manual
- Mario Kart Double Dash Special Edition w/Bonus disc (missing actual game disc)
I am asking for $1000 shipped within the states. PM or send offers. Also down to do trades + cash.
- Amazon Gift Card or Google Play
- Breath of the Wild (Cart only)
- BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle
- Micro SD Card 64 Gb or higher (Switch compatible)
- Joy Cons (Any variant)
I'm getting my popcorn ready
Are you not looking to separate? Curious what your price is on each game if you would split
Agreed that the price seems steep.
It's a really nice collection for sure- great conditions and an instant collection, but that also means that you're targeting someone who doesn't already have a GC collection started and has all-of-a-sudden decided to go all in. Ebay might be your better option here.

I agree. Ebay is your best bet. And the only way you'll get near that price is selling each individually. As a lot, no one will bite I wouldn't think.
> How much for pikmin 2 disc only?
I think Pikmin 2 is missing the disc if I read his post correctly. It's just box and manual
So for everyone that says this isn't worth the asking price:
If everything in this lot was in 8/10 or better shape disc wise and all complete, we sell the lot collectively in the shop for around $1500.
This is a huge number for GTZ, but if someone legit wanted these games and they were in nice shape - they're saving easily 30%.
If I didnt just buy in $5,000+ in Genesis games I would try to barter this down/knock the price down with trades and pick it up for the shop (assuming the discs match our very strict guidelines of little to no scratches/never been resurfaced).
Hell, if someone walked in the front door and wanted $1000 in trade on this lot I'd cough it up.

[criticism, subjective] Singles price for a marked-up resale store, that makes sense. This is a bundle. No consideration for the devaluation a non-complete-set bundle suffers from; the best possible consumer appeal for this set would be to someone who not only doesn't have ANY Gamecube games, but wants to drop a grand on them at once, which seems like a unicorn (Whitefire's a unicorn, but he'll be firesaling them in two months if he picks them up anyways so there's that). Otherwise I'd argue he's literally listing this for someone else to resell for him and this would only realistically appeal as a package deal to a resale shop in the first place, but I'd imagine you'd be looking to only be paying about half of what you're selling it for, which is closer to 700-750 than it is to a grand by your own estimates.
Just thought I'd explain what "what the fudge" meant. It's an awkward listing. The cable's definitely unbalancing a higher accessibility.
This guy clearly has a collector collection...yet, is getting counseled like he doesn't know what the hell he has.
GameTZ probably needs to realize everyone asking high dollar amounts for high dollar items aren't stupid.
You pretty much get $500 from fire emblem and the cables alone. I didn't say the price was high but I would like to see how he priced each item

Fire Emblem PoR and the Component cable are not $500
I honestly still believe in the seller-set-their-own-prices-system. We don't have mods to monitor and these troll-y type posts will get out of hands quickly.
Just let sellers know their price is high by either lack of interest or PMing them.
If you are genuinely interested, you'd be surprised how many can be reasonable and will be like "oh, yea, this is not worth $1000, let's work something out"
And if they got offended then just move on.
This is one of the best lots we've seen on TZ in a long time, in terms of quality.
Before OSSC and the new GC video HDMI solution I would have dropped $300 on the cable easy.
OP you may have better luck on Nintendo Age, they have irrational spending habits and deep pockets.

The quality of this lot is definitely hot fire. That said I also agree with @DiamondDave breakdown post. It's a tough sell all at once and the main interest would be from resellers. And like @PlayYing said the cable is still high value but a tougher sell now with good HDMI solutions.
This is actually a good deal for the price. I think people are too quick to judge.

I'm debating on it actually..
This thread really sparked my interest, so I decided to see how much it would cost to buy this lot indivdually on eBay as of right now. All prices reflect CIB and include shipping, although Player's Choice was not always considered. I did not research sold auctions. This is not a scientific study, I just was curious about ballpark. Cubivore is a bit of a misnomer and probably adds an extra $100 to the actual value of the items.
Black Gamecube w Controller - $45 and includes 5 games
Game Boy Player w Disc - $80
Component Cable - $240
Zelda Ocarina of Time - $28

Pokemon Colosseum - $38
Sonic Heroes - $8
Sonic Mega Collection - $7

This lot is definitely worth over a grand, but I don't think you'll get that here as a lot.
On a related note, why has no third party accessory company released a cheaper GameCube component cable. Am I missing something?
Proprietary chip, typical of Nintendo to lock out other companies.

Ah, ok, I figured it was either something like that or Nintendo just outright blocking it like wireless controllers for Xbox 360.
If someone buys my Playchoice 10 arcade machine I am going to buy this lot. Trying to sell it now. Gonna put it on Craigslist.
