    Default How many copies of the genny Blockbuster cart exist?

    So far ive never seen a copy of the genesis blockbuster competition cart

    IF its so rare, then i guess its even rarer than the NWC!!!!...

    Does anyone know how many confirmed copies exist??

    I would like to know this as well. I'd also like to see a picture of the damn thing so I don't happen to overlook it while I'm out and about. =D.

    I know that Portnoyd has one.

    I think i remember him saying that there are only like 6 known ones or something to that nature (but I really dont know for sure).

    He's leaving for CGE this morning so he wont be back around here until Tuesday, but I'll ask him if I remember when i meet him at the Airport tomorrow morning.

    Im sure that there are a few other Genny masters here that know though.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    I believe Port's is the only known copy in collectors hands.

    GunPanther claims to have one (he mentioned it in a post here), but when I pm'd him about it he never replied.. that might be because I also asked if he would sell it though. I wish he would post a picture of it though so we would know that there's at least 2 known to exist.

    Joe Digitalpress should have one too. He does have a complete Genesis collection.
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?

    So that makes it... 3 copies? I didnt think this game would be so unbelievably rare!!

    Maybe It could be the most rare 16 bit game???

    I dont think he has one. He had a complete US released set. The BB cart was never released for sale.

    To clear this up.

    Portnoyd's is the only one known to be in a collector's hands as someone already mentioned.

    Joe as well as many others who collect Genny (including myself) do not have one and are therefore in line to buy it off of portnoyd. I did have a picture of it, but it was on my old computer. If I can find another I'll post it.

    I think i will delete it from my genesis wish list. If only one confirmed copy exists, then its IMPOSSIBLE to be able to find one on ebay or in the wild

    Fellows...this is the most rare 16 bit game

    BlockBuster threw away alot of there classic games from the NES, SNES, and Genny era. I know the 2 ones near me did at least. What are the chances they got tossed?
    Somebody make me a "CGE 2k7 Attendee banner" so I don't have to use this lame text

    Hahaha...but yeah seriously. Wtf does this thing look like? I demand a picture.

    Is it an R9? Seems to be a 10 to me.

    Whoever does the Genesis section change that to a R10 because it is the only known copy as of now and a 9 doesn't make sense.
    If they made a movie out of your top five worst sins, what would it be rated?
