    How's Rave Master these days? I saw mention of it in this topic years ago. Still not worth good $, but doesn't seem to have gotten any easier to find in the wild.

    I still have my factory sealed copy that I purchased from Best Buy in 2007. So that rules out that it was a Toys R Us exclusive as previously thought. You're correct it really hasn't maintained any value whatsoever and there's no demand to speak of. It hasn't shown up in my travels as much as other anime fighters like Naruto and Zatch Bell (Some versions of Naruto 2 and one of the Zatch Bell's came with an exclusive trading card, keep your eyes peeled.)

    It's been a while since I've come across that one, but I know for sure I've seen it at least twice, never at Gamestop though. When you say "pack-in" does that mean that it came bundled with the Gamecube at one point? Definitely rare and one of the more expensive titles on the system.

    I even have most of your "I own it but rare" titles.

    Dragon's Lair 3D is hard to find?
    Are you a Gamecube collector yourself? Some of the games I mentioned may purely be a regional thing. I've been to about 12 Gamestops in the state (some of which are closed now) and 11 other game stores (including PlaynTrade, Game Crazy and Disc Traders) between my house and where I attend college. It'll get tougher once GS stops carrying Gamecube stuff once the Wii U comes out but right now game collecting is as good as it ever was for me. Like I said I've only purchased 2 Gamecube games online, those being Bionicle Heroes and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. Nothing rare, but at the time they were half the price of what GS wanted for them. So my observations are based on what I've noticed in the wild.

    As for Dragon's Lair 3D, I know I haven't seen that one very much since it was released 9 years ago. I've owned the X-box version for some time and that one is much easier to find it seems.

    Also, don't forget the 2nd cover variation for Midway Arcade Treasures.

    It's probably one of those games that got flaky regional distribution then. A quick ebay look, shows no copies for sale within over 750 miles of my location.

    I'm pretty sure it came bundled with Gamecube and that may have been the only way to find new copies initially. Ironically enough I found mine at Gamestop but they actually charged me for both games seperately(it had a price for MP and one for WW on it, probably since it was the first time they ever got one of those in and couldn't exactly figure out how to price it).

    I ran across a copy on ebay and bought it, the seller used a photo from the past for selling this game, so I didn't get the wal-mart version I wanted. Just got the normal version, but I did save the picture of it, showing the unique manual for it. A sealed version might have a sticker on the case, or could possibly have a different artwork.
    If anybody wants the picture of it, just let me know, it might make it easier to find with a visual.
    NASCAR 2006-2008 got walmart editions for the ps2, so I'm also hunting for it on the ps2.
    There's also Best Buy editions of some of the PS2 Nascar games.

    The only Best Buy version game I know of, is for NASCAR 09, the ps3 version as well. Do you know of any others?

    The N64 version of Donald Duck Goin' Quackers is rare? I've had this game for years.

    I know for a fact Pokemon Box was a Pokemon Center NY exclusive, no surprise that it's not easy to find in the wild seeing as there was only one place regionally to get it (Minus online.)

    Yet the 'minus online' was it's primary sales location. Don't discount online channels. The Pokemon Center store had it up for quite a while, and I bet sold more copies than the PokeStore did. I'm not discounting it's rarity, but it's harder to find complete w/ outer cardboard box than anything.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Complete in Box it's pretty uncommon. Coincidentally, it was the very last game I needed to finish my CIB N64 set and I picked it up two weeks ago. I'd beg to differ though... it is far rarer complete on N64 than it is on Gamecube. Do a simple eBay search right now and look at the results.

    DDGQ was one of the last games I needed for my Gamecube collection, which should indicate how hard it was for me to find a CIB copy.

    As an aside, I had a look at the game and flicked through the manual...

    I'd have to think the rarest game would be one of the following:

    Zelda WW/Metroid Prime
    NCAA 2K3
    Pokemon Box

    Wasn't Pokemon Box given away as a preorder bonus for one of the Pokemon games?
    I thought that'd make it more common.

    That was the Jirachi Bonus Disc, the preorder bonus for Pokemon Collusieum.

    That's right. The pack with Pokemon Box and Pokemon Collusieum together, is fairly common yet a PAL only release.

    I remember back in 2006 or 2007, Best Buy was selling it for $10, and then one of my magazines came with a $5 off any Gamecube game at Best Buy coupon. Got it for $5. I've since seen it once or twice in the wild. It doesn't seem to be amazingly rare. It isn't a terribly good game, and Rave Master never caught on, so I doubt it'll ever be worth much.

    For Naruto 2, you mean Successors? I thought that came in all of them. From personal experience though, when a card is released in a game, DVD, or manga volume, it usually gets rereleased and is much easier to find later on. The rerelease drastically reduces demand for limited release cards.
    Completed listing on Successors. Apparently not worth the paper it's printed on.

    Here's the cover of the Walmart Exclusive NASCAR 2005, assuming I can do this right...



    Reminds me; I think there was a thread on here a while back (pre server move, I believe, as the URL -- http://www.digitpress.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=52137 -- 404s now) about insert and big box variations. This should be added, if that could be found.

    If I remember correctly, there were a few games that got the 'Walmart' treatment at that time (I worked as a vendor at Walmart, in the electronics dept at the time), and the only difference between it being a normal copy and a Walmart copy was what you see on that manual. Too bad it's a sticker that was originally on the shrink wrap, that when peeled, gave you a code for a new track... under the sticker. The game was the standard copy of the game.
