I'm Jackson. I play and collect 8-bit Nintendo.

I just completed a trade with a local collector. I picked up six new NES boxes for my collection, and they're all personally exciting for one reason or another:

CastleVania II (I now have the full trilogy CIB)
Desert Commander (childhood favorite; CIB at last!)
Dr. Chaos (one of my first 10 NES games growing up)
Hogan's Alley (probably one of my first 10 games; definitely my second Zapper game after Duck Hunt)
Rampart (such a cool game!)
Simpsons: Bartman Meets Radioactive Man (as bad as Acclaim's Simpsons platformers are, I just can't hate them because of how much I love the show)

Maybe I'll add a picture later...

That doll looks way too new to be from 1985. Are you sure that's not a knockoff? There's tons of knockoff Mario dolls.

It's not a knockoff but it's also not from 1985.  Those giant goombas were released in Japan in 2005.  The tag has the 1985 SMB copyright on it but the other side has the 2005 manufacture date.  There is so much SMB series related stuff released in Japan every year since 1985.  Either way it's an awesome plush to have.

You are correct, sir!  It's from 2005.  Which means that it *may* be from around the same time as the nuigurumi Famicom and Disc System plushies that I've been hunting for.

Found a copy of Jetman for the Famicom yesterday.  I've heard nothing but good things, so for 800 yen, I figured "Why not?". 

...other than that I'm still working through that massive Fukuoka haul from the summer...

The Book-Off around Yokohama was blowing out a bunch of their Famicom cassettes.  Mostly commons I already had, but did manage to find a few I was missing.  Nothing special, but at 108 each, why not? 

Zoids, TM Network Live in POwer Bowl (with the funky half/half cart), Road FIghter, Perfect Bowling, Dragon Spirits, and two Family Trainer titles, Aerobics Studio and Meiro Daisakusen.

Great find, one of my favorite Famicom games. Just make sure you hold A+B while you start the game, so you can play it on very hard mode for the optimal JETTOMAN experience.

So ends another chapter in the glorious legend of the Ninja... Until next time...

It's great!  Road Fighter and Dragon Spirit are both fantastic as well.
