    I was going to take pictures and make this a really pretty post, but the cat is asleep in here and I'm afraid the flash is going to wake him up. This is from the past couple of weeks since I haven't posted in one of these threads for a while.

    - Master System Converter II (free!)

    I have a boxed complete Master System Converter one, but it doesn't play some of the MS games I own, like Alex Kidd The Lost Star. So... I found a new one that plays them all! Horjay! "Find the miracle ball."

    - I completed my collection of Sonic X figurines! Sonic, Tails, Big, Robotnik and Knuckles get!

    - Giant DX Knuckles plush from Sonic Adventure. He's 16" tall and has pride of place on my bed. Minty fresh, still got his tag. He cost more that I would have liked, but hey, I would have liked free. :P

    - Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six for NES, cart $3

    - Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance for GCN, complete, $30

    - Burnout 3 for Xbox, complete, free!

    - Dead Or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball for Xbox, complete, $25

    - Cool Spot for Mega Drive, complete, $5

    - Taz Mania for Mega Drive, complete, $5

    - Sonic 3D Flickies Island for Mega Drive, complete and mint, $20.

    This is the best price I have ever seen for it in a store, and for this condition? Sold! My Sonic Mega Drive collection is now complete!

    - Virtua Racing for Mega Drive, boxed, $5

    - Phantasy Star IV for Mega Drive, complete, $5

    - 2 x Japanese Mega Drive games, World Of Illusion and McDonalds Treasureland Adventure, boxed, $4 each.

    The McDonalds game was actually a pleasant surprise to play, it's really fun! World Of Illusion I already have a PAL copy of, but the box art is really pretty, so I had to.

    Pretty good effort, considering I've banned myself from eBay for the time being, I was spending too much money. All prices are in Australian dollars.

    Stopped by a pawn today that I don't visit that often... only to be reminded why I don't stop there that often. I did manage to find something I wanted, though:

    N64:
    Cruis'n Exotica (loose) - $5.48

    Collection List | Twitter
    Check out the new N64 Rumble Pak. See how it feels to feel what you see.

    Default Soory for the Big read and Big Pics,

    Flea Market...Went later then I wanted to.. :/
    Sometimes going late is a good thing...I spent only $59.00 total/Some stuff my dad paid for.
    We passed up a lot of stuff though..
    .......................................
    For dad not pictured.
    Gameboy:
    Tetris and a Darts GBC carts $10.00
    N64 System with Power Pak $3.00

    .........................................
    SNES :
    Batman Returns $2.00
    NES:
    Bucky O'Hare
    Side Pocket
    Hylide
    Little Ninja Brothers
    $14.00..I'm picking out games I don't own.. from the bins there.
    .....................................
    VideoNow (Black and White version) $4.00 with mini DVD and Batteries.(it's loud)
    My Son has the color version already.
    Placo Video Shooter..Light gun...$10.00
    This was with a NES system and games..the block fits into a NES...
    What the HECK is this For..?

    ........................................
    PreComputer 1000 Vtech with cart and batteries $2.00

    ..................................



    Handheld games: This all came in one big box.
    The guy wanted $4 a piece then said $10.00 for the whole box. x_x .Stuff in the boxes is complete and mint.
    I was just going to buy the four handheld games at $4.00 a piece.. :P
    This stuff is ridiculously mint I can't believe it....Stuff looks never touched inside..with paperwork and Styrofoam.,no dirt or dust etc.
    The Head to head even has a big flap on the box that folds over for display.
    The one Baseball game is an old Epoch game..Interesting.


    ....................................
    Before I left I checked the price on the Candy/Gumball machine that I passed up last week because in my eye's it says $50.00 at least with the vendors I deal with..(it's big)
    The guy said $10.00..I ask him over to him to make sure he wasn't thinking I was pointing at something else.
    I was shocked $10.00 and it's complete besides the flap I need to put back on...It has locks and it's "clean"..I already found a nice spot for it in my kitchen..(I've always wanted one of these things)
    I'm going to put on two new candy Stickers(leave the M& M on) that I can get at my wife's store or make up..and some 25 cent stickers(because I have them) on the bins.
    The left one says Skittles and the center bin drop holes look bigger like for Gumballs.
    It all works ..where is says 25 cent it takes quarters..
    I just need to change the 3 locks or make up keys for it(not a problem)..(the locks are open)
    It'll look a lot nicer when filled and Stickered.(I still have to clean it up better)

    On top it has a picture of a missing child..Should I leave that on..(?)


    Edit..It's starting to clean up by removing covering sticker/residue.


    .................................................. .................................................. .............................
    Some vendors very just straight crazy on prices..Example:.Nice no box deck old style Genesis system with no AC plug..$40.00..Around 20 loose nice games in the box with the Genny/ a cute Sega cart bag ...$3.00 each game..(commons)
    This guy did not want to sell the whole lot...though I would not of paid $40.00 for it all it anyway.
    $20.00 loose common SNES carts.
    .................................................. .......
    Upon getting to the Flea:
    The first vendor me and my dad hit was the smaller Airsoft Gun dealer.
    My dad didn't buy anything from him but got some info on some coming in items.
    I bought a BB catching target for $5.00..(as my dad has)

    Then we visited the bigger Airsoft type Gun dealer..he was waiting for us and told people to move(shouting) to let us through("Here's the guy"-"come to the back to see this special stuff")..I blushed because I felt like some sort of celebrity.
    He had three special Gas guns for my dad..And IMO with they money my dad spends with him,he's his best customer..I didn't get a picture of them (yet) but they were three of the nicest I've seen yet and at $590.00 for the three they better be nice..
    I was going to buy another Spring Airsoft gun or maybe a rifle but I just never got around to it..

    I really go to the flea market just for the games..

    Chris

    Yes..
    It's wireless and the gun has 4 AA batteries in it.
    I'm going to take a guess that this is just a wireless NES gun..Right.?
    It throws me off with the "Placo"on it and it looks like master System gun.
    I've never heard of Placo nor have ever seen this gun..
