    If you have any info on the rarity of these games (I have the last two), let me know.

    You can always use Yahoo Japan as a guide to see what they're running... at least in Japan.

    I will one day add Famicom to the Yahoo Japan Auction Assistant at Japanese Gaming... it takes quite a while to translate the whole list though, and I've got other updates that need to be done.

    Probably won't do any good. Most YJ sellers won't ship abroad even if you can do a local (in Japan) bank transfer (preferred method of payment) and speak Japanese. You'll have to find a surrogate, which unfortunately cost a lot of money.

    Do you know of any other helpful sites, or should I just wait for an auction on eBay?

    Try Rinkya. http://www.rinkya.com They'll let you bid on Japanese auctions and ship the stuff to you. Note that they do cost quite a bit, but it's a good way to find the stuff you want if price isn't an issue. Good luck
