    I'm not that picky
    but DD LDC "big box" is something quite unusual,and is a nice addition

    Too,Classic Brown Robocop VS Terminator is quite hard to find,and since it has different cover from other release...i thought COMPLETE Euro meant that...

    I won't go up to the different "copyright year" covers

    Your complete set deserve a big resolution pic,so ppl can clearly see titles...no way to see if that 200 different titles, or 200 Kenseiden copies
    I mean a complete set like that is GREAT to have,a great collection achievment...

    I do have complete Euro SMS set as well,including Classic Brown,Kixx,DD LDC Big box etc...will try to make pic when i have time and this time with good resolution ( which i didn't do for MD/PCE/SFC...but i'll do later)

    Yeah, I've passed the DD box up a couple of times, but will get it eventually. Too busy with the MegaDrive at the moment though

    There's some better pics of the collection here: http://sg1000.emucamp.com/sgr/anagrama.htm
    They're over a year out of date now though, and are missing most of the variations & Brazilian/Japanese games I've got since.

    That's better pics

    I see you're missing many Brazilian exclusives on those pics,as you said...too, some Kixx & Classic Brown releases ( in fact sme are quite hard to find)

    But seeing the front covers is way better

    Is it just me or do the old grid cases kick complete ass over the newer game cases?

    I'll resurrect this from the dead to post my thoughts on the rarest games, since trends seem to have fluctuated over the years:

    Top tier:
    Sonic the Hedgehog (US UPC)
    James "Buster" Douglas Knockout Boxing

    2nd tier:
    Strider (US UPC)
    Super Monaco GP
    Dick Tracy

    3rd tier:
    Aerial Assault
    Joe Montana Football
    R.C. Grand Prix

    4th tier:
    Golden Axe Warrior (US UPC)
    Spider-man (US UPC)
    Power Strike
    Moonwalker
    Ghouls'n Ghosts

    5th tier:
    Alex Kidd in Shinobi World
    Slap Shot
    Castle of Illusion

    I've still yet to see a US Strider on eBay (message me if you have one!), and I've been looking straight for six months. Same goes with Sonic (although with those prices, I'm not sure I want to ). Castle of Illusion's rarity, I feel, is quite overrated by the DP guides - I've seen a fair number of copies online and in B&M stores.

    It's funny how the market has changed - someone saying they got $50 for a Super Monaco GP in 2004, while the mint one I sold on eBay a couple months ago barely pushed $10.

    Of course, ranking the re-releases on that list is opening up a whole new can of worms. Still, some modern discussion on this would be nice!

    I've got a US Strider, and I managed to get it on eBay for a really good price (under $10, that I remember for sure).

    I would put any of the sticker games in the Top Tier. IMO Buster Boxing is much easier to find.

    Yeah, the hype around Buster is interesting, because I have definitely seen less US Strider's and Joe Montana Football's, but some how Joe Montana will only fetch $5 complete, whereas Buster will go for $100+. It's like years ago a Buster Douglas auction went for plenty and then the price has been fixed there ever since.

    Is it true that Sonic the Hedgehog is really that rare?!?
    What is its value?
    I never imagine it would be in same tier as Buster Douglas Boxing.

    $50-$100+ depending on the lunacy of the bidders involved.

    I had Joe Montana, Spider-Man and Strider. Sold them to another forum member last year. They were found in the wild at once. Lucky!
