    Awesome. \^_^/ I knew I couldn't be the only collector to own the 3.5" IBM disk version.

    Do you collect memorabilia that isn't directly part of a specific Castlevania game? Stuff like wall scrolls, posters, etc.? I'd really like to get the original Konami NES box art poster again. Used to have it but my father threw it out years ago.

    You can also remove the word "small" from the topic because you have almost all (if not all) Castlevania games there is :P
    The Akdra 1993 cart re-release is pretty hard to find outside Japan, hardly ever shows up on Ebay. But Ive never seen one go for more than 250 dollars complete. I payed about 130 total through a service and Yahoo Japan.

    I suppose the collection isnt small. But It hardly compares to some of the "rooms of doom" displayed on this site, so I tried to be humble . I am missing a few odds and ends still. Boku Dracula Kun, Lament of Innocence Limited Edition, Vampire Killer (European, MSX2), Vampire Killer (MD). Etc etc.

    Not mainly, I own a couple of the OSTs. Dracula Apocalypse, Nocturne in the Moonlight, Castlevania Chronicle. I have an original Castlevania Chronicle poster that was put up in Japanese shop windows before its release date, and one of the generic SOTN wallscrolls. But not much overall. I actually want one of those original old CV1 NES posters quite a bit too, but they're very rare. I saw one on Ebay last year go for about 60-70 dollars.

    Uh, I already sent you a PM regarding your latest acquisition... and I'd like to extend that request to Akumajou Densetsu. Eheh.

    Damn you. Do you own the Kid Dracula OST, by the way?

    PM sent.

    I dont actually own that OST no, I kind of thought of Boku Dracula Kun to Castlevania as Parodius is to Gradius respectively until recently, I finally picked it up the other day for the collection as it has Galamoth and some other amusing throwbacks in it.

    Residentvania and Mills, your collections are quite nice too.

    Those promo items sound awesome, Residentvania. And you're larger collection is very nice, especially the atari items.

    Sorry about that, I had Nes on the brain lol.

    That big display promo thing in the back came with my complete VS Castlevania kit. Its a big "NEW GAME" display that went on the cabinet somehow, seperate from the marquee. I think it went on the top.

    Hmm.. tough to say. Opinions will vary on that (perhaps some other 'vania fans will share theirs as well)

    Tough to say, so many choices.

    I guess Id go with Symphony of the Night. The classic gamer in me cries out in disgust at this, but the game is the peak of the series and hands down the best one in it, despite it being nothing like the tough as nails old side scrollers.

    The rare version that is missing here is the Amiga version..quite hard to find those days,complete in box

    Rarer than IBM PC versions.

    As someone who has done a huge amount of research into the Amiga version, I will state that I do not believe that version was ever commercially released. No box scans exist of it anywhere, and the ROM that exists by novotrade does not match the screenshots on the back of the CVPC box, which shows the Commodore/PC/Amiga versions.

    http://dinosaur-act.ath.cx:8000/cpg/...lbum=247&pos=1

    This ad exists, but shows no different screenshots than the back of the Castlevania PC box. Furthermore, a ROM dump of the version actually advertised does not exist. Only the Novotrade version, which looks vaguely like the PC version, but is quite arguably the worst Castlevania game ever made. My suspicion is that the Amiga version was canned before it even hit the shelves.

    I still have hope there WAS an Amiga version actually sold, but until I see box/disk scans I will remain extremely skeptical.

    Residentvania and Mills, your collections are quite nice too.
    Thank you for the kind words. I've been trying to get as much castelvania stuff as I can find. For some reason I feel it would be really awesome to have a ton of vania stuff.

    Although I rarely like to buy games from ebay or through any online means, I feel alot better finding the game extremely cheap in a dusty old store. Thats why its harder for me to find the more rare titles.

    I had all the NES versions but I sold them for alot more than I paid for them. They can be acquired again very easily.

    Dracula X I got for free from a friend.
    The gameboy titles i got for 5 dollars each. Mint too.
    CV IV I got complete and super mint for only 14 dollars shipped.

    The rest from best buy, walmart etc. Right now I really wnat legends. I would LOVE to get all the older ones complete. I love seeing gameboy games boxed.

    I understand the desire to collect the old fashion way, digging through bins and looking through glass cases, wiping dirt off covers in a dirty swap meet box. Its fun to work to find your stuff.

    I collected most of my NES Black label carts this way, I only got Stack Up and Gyromite off Ebay.



    Now to sell this little collection..

    That is amazing, especially considering how collectable (read: expensive!) Castlevania is. Nice work!

    I'm only just getting really into the series now. Woe is me. :P

    Kid Dracula doesnt have any relation with Castlevania, does it? I have the GB version.


    EDIT: Found this with Google

    Kid Dracula is a very weak link to the Castlevania series...a label on the cart that I own even calls it "Castlevania Jr." It has very little to do gameplay wise to the CV series, even though music from it was featured in the Dracula Music Collection CD that came with Dracula X: Nocturne in the Moonlight for the Playstation.
    I wouldnt count it as a CV game tho. Like i dont count Cannon Spike and Capcom VS SNK as a Mega Man game because he is in the games.

    It does in a few odd ways. Kid Dracula is actually supposed to be a young Alucard. Additionally, Galamoth from Symphony of the Night had his first appearance in the Famicom version.

    BTW, are you willing to sell or trade that gameboy kid drac?

    Ah sweet! I just asked because i have no idea how rare the GB version is. I just got it in a GB bundle some months ago, never really looked for it. I remember a friend bought this game when it was fairly new, was cool to play

    Hehe, so you have heard of Rockman Strategy eh?
