Title: Price Check
Post by: Dain on July 25, 2007, 08:48:59 PM
Hey guys,

I've got some Famicom stuff I'm eventually wanting to sell, but I'd like to know roughly what fair market value is for it. I figured you guys would know better than anyone. I'm not 100% sure I'm going to part with it yet, but if I do, I just don't want to get too ripped off :)

All of the items are complete/new, and I purchased them a long time ago and really don't recall what I paid for them.

R.O.B.
Stack-Up
Gyromite
3-D System
Laser Commander
Rodland
Super Mario Bros. 3

Any help would be appreciated.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on July 25, 2007, 09:26:05 PM
3D CIB = approx. $30
Rodland CIB = approx. $20
SMB3 = approx. $15
ROB = approx. $50
Gyro/Stack-Up = approx. $50 each

Don't know about the others. I haven't been paying attention to the prices lately, but these are what I think those'd go for. I hope you get a second or third opinion.

What's the going rate on a CIB A Week Of Garfield?   ...and does anyone happen to have one for sale/trade? I'm have difficulties locating one odviously. :P

What about the Rockman games?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on August 18, 2007, 01:28:19 AM
There's been a cart-only lot on eBay for $75 for a while. It's not selling. I don't think people would be willing to pay more than $60 for a lot like that. As for CIB, that's a different story. There are a few hardcore Mega Man collectors around who might pay about $15-20 per CIB Rock Man. I wouldn't recommend listing anything until September, as eBay is really slow because summer's ending and school's starting.

I'm asking this here so I don't make another thread which I think it's unnecessary but I want to know how much are worth the Famicom cart bubble bobble and the pirated bubble bobble. Thanks


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on September 22, 2007, 03:22:30 AM
Bubble Bobble for Famicom is a disk. There was no cart. There was a cart for Bubble Bobble 2, however. So, the pirate ain't worth much. I've seen it go for $10 on a lucky day for a seller. I'd be willing to pay $25 if it's the disk version on cart. :)

what is the difference of the disk version if it's on cart?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on September 22, 2007, 04:47:32 AM
Other than the technical internal changes required for it to be ported to cart, nothing is different from the disk version. I don't think the sprites were ever hacked.

Gamestop sells the original GBAs used for $29.99.  They usually overprice, but that's a good ceiling price.  The SP is $59.99, which seems very high to me.

SP is wayyyyyy overpriced on gamestop. If you live near any flea markets you can get GBAs for 5 bucks that's how I got mine.....

regular xbox

Well I got message from a guy that is selling his for 75 bucks with 7 games and 2 controllers. I'll take that offer either way. I finally put my snes away because I don't need it anymore with the ps2 snes emulator I have more than enough and I don't have much room in my console stand thing....

Ok. For the Famicom Akumajo Dracula III... how much is too much? I am looking for one. That and Akumajo Dracula 2 (disk)?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on November 02, 2007, 03:17:23 AM
Too much for II CIB is $20. Too much for III CIB is about $60. I've paid less attention to the price of II (hate that one) than the price of III.


Title: Re: Price Check

Akumajo Dracula 2 (disk) CIB with collection card more than $80USD  :o

For EMS shipping from Japan to the USA... is $21 for 10 Famicom carts too much? Do they weigh that much, or is it reasonable?

Thanks for your help on this and the other questions too.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on November 03, 2007, 12:40:48 AM
Maybe I'm not up with prices here, but I could swear I've seen II for much cheaper than $80...I use YHJ, however, not eBay.

And shipping from Japan is killer. I just bought two lots of 300+ games and the pricing for shipping was around $70-80, I think, for those...and that's Surface. EMS at $21 isn't bad, but then 10 games isn't that heavy. Someone here's got to have shipped a lot of that size. I usually only bulk ship Surface because it's cheaper, so it's hard for me to say for sure what you should be paying.

What would be a fair price to pay for a "Dream Mary"

http://famicomworld.com/Reviews/Dream_Mary.htm


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: 133MHz on November 05, 2007, 12:33:49 AM
Do you want it for the cart or the game itself? Because Dream Mary is easy to replicate, just flip the mirroring into a normal SMB cart, and there's your Dream Mary.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: MaxXimus on November 05, 2007, 12:38:28 AM
I don't know what you mean by "flip the mirroring" but I am talking about the cartridge itself. I just want to know what too much to pay would be?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on November 05, 2007, 01:08:10 AM
You can find this most everywhere...it's pretty common. It goes by a bunch of names and is usually on multicarts. Be patient and you'll get it for a few bucks.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: MaxXimus on November 05, 2007, 01:11:20 AM
That's the thing. I can most likely get it for like $5, which is even less in CAD. :) I'd say it was worth it, but I just wanted to know if it was a POS and not worth that much.

I have a few copies of the original though. I think I'm just gunna bid the minimum, and if I win it, great. If not, then meh.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on November 05, 2007, 01:17:23 AM
Good plan...I try to be an advocate for people paying the right prices because I see a lot of people overbidding on stuff they could get for cheap if they were patient. This is especially true of Mario hacks because most of them are common.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Japan-Games.com on November 05, 2007, 10:52:14 AM
$21 for 10 Famicom carts sounds about right.  If they're boxed then it's a really good price.  The minimum for any box going to the US is $15 for EMS, so you're paying $6 over the minimum.  Think of it that way.

Do you guys know what a new FamiCopy is worth?  It's the red unit that has a phone character as the mascot.

Title: Re: Price Check

I think yes. I don't recall seeing it often. There are a few like that. They had limited release, maybe even just through Disk Writers...but you could request the official disk label and foldout manual through the mail. I can't say for sure if this is true of DK.

Im sorry to say but Donkey Kong for FDS was only avaliable on the Diskwriters so a complete copy would be hard to find. You might find a disk with stickers and a foldout manual but thats the closes you get to a complete copy.

I just bought a new Famicom Disk System from Ebay for $121 + $44 shipping. It includes the disk drive body, RAM adapter, RF extension cord, instruction manual, plenty of inserts and posters (one of them for Kid Icarus!), and an extra belt (new) for loading. Everything is in new condition and mint. Is this a good deal?

That's not really an accurate comparison, as the GB Micro will not play GBC or GB games.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: satoshi_matrix on January 22, 2008, 06:40:05 PM
that's only because the mirco doesnt have the Z-80 processor of the original Gameboy due to its size. The Z-80 was present only for older games. The GBA hardware is entirely independant of it.

Still, I see what your saying.

Sometimes I see it go for about $35 shipped. There are two versions of it though. Different games on each, so it would depend I guess. Isn't there a thread for prices already though?

EDIT:

People pay way too much for this though. I'd pay $20... MAYBE $25 tops but that's stretching it. :P

2. It comes with a free pirate (everyone loves free pirates)
3. It's dirt cheap.

I always get in trouble because I tell people essentially what I think things are worth, regardless of their going rate. Nonetheless, I'd put Mother CIB at $45; Hitler cart-only at $30; SMB CIB at $17; and Just Breed CIB at $14.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on March 17, 2008, 04:43:35 AM
I haven't paid attention to the price of that game much lately. I'd think you could find it for under $90 and closer to $75, but then, I'm thinking YHJ prices, not eBay prices.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: ckenda1 on March 17, 2008, 03:09:51 PM
Last 2 Hitler No Fukkatsu Top Secret CIB's that I saw on Y!J were $90 and $150 respectively.

The $90 one had a bit of wear and the $150 one was pretty much brand new looking.

I'll give these a try, but I only really know the prices of games I'm interested in (I don't buy CIB, ever).

Rockman CIB = $18
Rockman 2 CIB = $16
Kid Icarus CIB = $30
Legend of Zelda CIB = $20
SMB2j CIB = $15
Kid Dracula CIB = $23

I'd recommend searching these on YHJ and seeing which auctions are selling and which aren't. That'll give you a good idea of pricing. That's how I determine prices of stuff I want to buy.

Rockman CIB for $18?  I checked YHJ and saw nothing below $75 for a CIB.

Also, is there a difference in pricing for CIB and Brand NEW FDS games?

Thanks!

Post by: Mo on March 19, 2008, 06:05:03 PM
Thanks JC!! I seriously thought Rockman would go for around $150!!  The Pal version CIB sells for about $120 & that's PAL ???.

http://page9.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/k49646410

That is currently the only one on YHJ.  $175-$195.  Don't think you can find one for $18.

Hope that helps!

I've never heard anywhere of Rockman being rare. I wouldn't trust one auction's price; some of those YHJ prices are outrageous, as is the case with eBay sometimes. And I don't think I could be that far off...I'll keep my eye out for more.

Granted this can be true, but the cart only's I saw were ~$40.  Heck all 6 carts together were going for $100-$125.  The bulk of that being Rockman 1 and 2.

All six carts aren't worth that price. They rarely sell on eBay for over $70 combined, which is just over $10 per cart. I can't imagine Rockman cart-only goes for $40. This I know for sure. CIB, I'm not so sure.

EDIT: Just wanted to say for certain, after poking around YHJ for a while, that all six cart-only sell for less than $50 in Japan -- no where near the $100-$125 mentioned. I've only come across one Rockman CIB auction, and it wasn't selling, so I can't say for sure.

I think it can be had for a bit cheaper, too. The online shops I know won't ship internationally, but I could try to find stuff for you if you still want it in about a month from now.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: KEVMAN569 on May 04, 2008, 03:51:14 PM
Found this famicom multicart on Ebay.  It's the 76 in 1 which from what I hear actually has 76 original games on it with no repeats, but I may be wrong.  It comes with a 60-72 pin converter that says "T89" on it and I beleive there is an article on this site. 

Just want to know if it's worth $30 and if you know what games are on it that would be helpful.



Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: KEVMAN569 on May 04, 2008, 11:37:57 PM
PLEASE I think this is reasonable and I want to buy it before it's gone but I need your opion.

P.S. This would be my first Multicart so anyone thinking of buying it please don't I only have 4 famicom games!


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on May 05, 2008, 12:14:53 AM
I don't pay more than $15 for multicarts. The shipping is pretty high, too. I think I've actually got that multicart. If it's the same one, it's a pretty good one.


Title: Re: Price Check

I also comes with a converter too so how much would that be?


Title: Re: Price Check

I wouldn't pay more than $5 to $10 for a converter, depending on quality and condition.

I wouldn't pay more than $5 to $10 for a converter, depending on quality and condition.

so 15 + 10 is 25 so not that overpriced.  Plus I never see these on eBay.  I think I'll buy it.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: MaxXimus on May 05, 2008, 08:08:01 PM
Well If there truly are over 70 games on that multi cart, then you should buy it. It's worth $30 to me. :P


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: KEVMAN569 on May 05, 2008, 09:55:23 PM
I've read multiple places that the 76 in 1 is highly popular in japan because of the reason that it doesn't contain any repeats.  There is even  a games list on the back of the cart as seen on the auction page.

I'll probably purchase it tonight but if anyone has any objections post them now.  I'll be back here beofre I buy it and if no one says anything I'm buying it.

Sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask this, but:

I've finally managed to find a CiB Super Contra... Now, I don't know if this is a 'known' rare game or what but I've had a hell of a time finding a boxed one and I've only seen unboxed ones two or three times this year. The seller wants somewhere in the region of $75-80 for it (the price is in Euros, the seller is French). I think you'll agree that's a lot for a Famicom game, although it's about what I paid for my boxed Contra. Is this much over the 'market' value or not?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on May 10, 2008, 10:29:28 PM
It's kinda rare on eBay, but more common on YHJ. I'd say the going rate for it CIB is around $30. I haven't seen a CIB on eBay in a long time, but I can't imagine it selling for over $30 CIB -- unless new or mint -- on YHJ.

I think it's a pirate. It looks pretty authentic, but the other cart that seller has listed is a pirate. The pirate is worth nothing. The real thing, cart-only, is pricey...I'd guess $20, give or take a few dollars. Awesome game...


Title: Re: Price Check

This can't be generalized I fear.

I paid $30 for my Recca pirate, but it's a single game cart. I tend to think single game pirates with a really good game are better (worth more) than multicarts with a good game. What are the other three games?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: TheClash603 on August 12, 2008, 10:39:19 PM
Recca 4-in-1 includes Top Gun 2, Air Wolf, and Cobra Command.

I am purchasing that cart, plus the two following for $60 shipped.

4-in-1 w/ Batman and Flashman, Spiderman, Golden Axe, Double Dragon 3

3-in-1 w/ Lion King 1, Mortal Kombat 2, Mortal Kombat 3

Seems like a decent deal to me.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on August 12, 2008, 10:45:45 PM
Sounds like the right price. I'd be curious what "Golden Axe" is. There's an unlicensed original of it and a hack of The Lord of King. Might not be either, though. I'll also be curious to know which versions of MK are on the 3 in 1.

Do you know if Lion King is the port?

The Lion King might be the Dragon version, which I haven't been able to track down. It's hard to tell from that screen alone. Looks like the Golden Axe is the very basic hack, not the original. Can't quite figure out which MK that is. I defintely would have picked up Palbunjin just because I have no clue what it is: original or hack. You should get it for me or put me in contact to get it. Depends on the asking price, I guess, and whether it's an original or hack -- but sometimes you don't know that until you have it in your hands.

toysonlinehk has Kid Dracula CIB for $50. I'm not planning on picking up a copy of this game soon but for when I do is this a typical price I should expect for a CIB copy?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on August 15, 2008, 03:06:26 AM
You can find it for $15 on YHJ. I'd say, pay no more than $30.

Kid Dracula is for sale on risingstuff.com, too. It's $15 HERE (http://www.risingstuff.com/famicom-akumajou-special-boku-draculakun-game-only-p-1664.html).

In case anyone wants to order from Rising Stuff, I just wanted to let you know I got a few games from there and the price was right with fast shipping.  If you are looking for Kid Dracula, this would be a great place to get it.

I think he's looking CIB. That link is cart-only. Rising's got good prices, if you consider what you'll have to pay on eBay or after fees when using a proxy service.

First let me introduce myself i'm Jeroen and I just won an av famicom of ebay (yay)
So I decided to join. Got two questions though
So how much is just the cart? (hitlers revival)
Anyone have one?



Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on August 19, 2008, 05:36:02 PM
Welcome! It'll sell anywhere from $20 to $35 loose. I doubt anyone here has an extra.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on August 19, 2008, 08:45:25 PM
The few on eBay are overpriced, or at least 16-bit's copy is. CIB Gimmick shouldn't sell for over $50, I'd think. But it's kinda hard to find.

I see the game listed for buy it now $50 on ebay.

I wouldn't pay that much, bought mine loose from Rising Stuff a lot cheaper, but this price seems about right CIB.

I never won a cib off yahoo japan and I was bidding 8000 or 9000 yen when I was trying to get one. I don't remember what they ended up going for.

CIB Gimmick in nice condition is over a $100 game.

I think toysonlinehk one for $80 was the right price since his was just in ok condition, but I think I saw ones in about that condition go for more on yahoo japan.

Now you can find a loose gimmick for $30-$40 from japan if you're lucky. When the loose ones are sold on ebay for $100, that's a rip off! Especially when they're in crappy condition...

Hey,

i'm new here after a link on a rarity list :)

I got some famicom carts and i was wondering what their value is:
(http://www.nintendoage.com/media/_usermedia/attachments/NES_famicom4small.JPG)

52 in 1
200+ in 1 (not sure how many, didn't count:P)
turtles pirate?

they are for sale if anyone is interested :)


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: 133MHz on September 16, 2008, 06:36:42 PM
Depends on the included games.
Rare games, unusual hacks and pirate originals drive up the price.
Carts with 999999999999999999999999999999+ in 1 games with only 6 different ones and carts filled with common as dirt games are pretty worthless.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on September 16, 2008, 06:38:42 PM
I sell glob-top multicarts for $10 and PROM multicarts for $15, regardless of the games on them, unles, like 133MHz said, you've got hacks or unlicensed originals on them (your carts appear to have run-of-the-mill games). Most other single game pirates are few bucks at best, unless lucky. The HoneyBee adaptor is is great. There are gray ones and gold ones. The gold ones are considered better because they're gold, but I don't think there's any difference in quality. A generic converter can sell for $10, but a HoneyBee can (not alway, but can) sell for up to $25.

I don't have a gray HoneyBee, so I might be interested in buying it.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Xtincthed on September 16, 2008, 06:42:45 PM
i'm selling it all as a lot preferably cuz i dont use them myself (PAL collector)

what about that strange turtles cart?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: 133MHz on September 16, 2008, 07:05:10 PM
Try it out, see what game it really is, and if there's any differences between it and the original game.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Xtincthed on September 16, 2008, 07:07:07 PM
yeah i will this weekend, but no clue towards its value?

I said a few bucks at most -- like $3.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: ericj on September 16, 2008, 11:01:42 PM
I agree with JC on the value of the pirate cart.

The most valuable item in the lot is the Honey Bee cart converter.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Xtincthed on September 17, 2008, 10:27:23 AM
so $50 for the lot would be quite a good price?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on September 17, 2008, 01:49:16 PM
$50 is OK for an asking price. Famicom lots don't usually sell very high. I think you can expect around $40 -- all hinged on interest in the HoneyBee.

I'm about to purchase that I was to great to pass up. I actually found a Family Fitness Pad for the Famicom. It's CIB with game CIB. I stumbled upon this while talking to a guy I get my imports from. What do ya'll think of this deal?


Title: Re: Price Check

How much?


Title: Re: Price Check

Pretty resonable price. Just over $100 shipped to me.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: ericj on October 01, 2008, 10:32:50 PM
Sounds like a pretty good deal CIB.

I got mine with 5 games loose for about $30 shipped from Canada to the US. Where are you having yours shipped from/to?

I think the pad is hard to find CIB, but I'm not sure of the value. JC probably knows!  ;)

Btw, which game does it come with and what's it's condition?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: derek1112 on October 02, 2008, 01:46:39 AM
It will be coming from Japan.  The only detail I received on the game was it was the game that came with it originally. He had just to me its the original family trainer game. When I get it I'll be able to see which one out of ten I got.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on October 02, 2008, 03:33:54 AM
I've seen them sell for around $30-50 CIB, depending on condition. Don't know what shipping would cost, but $50-70 sounds like a lot, unless perhaps it's EMS and then it could get expensive. An FDS I bought shipped EMS for $80 one time -- which I'll never do again. I think Athletic World was the only game released with it (also sold separately).


Title: Re: Price Check

Pay as little as possible. It's worth about $100 in my estimation.

Hmm, one problem with that one, the seller says that all the cards work, but only the SFII doesn't. I don't know what the problem can be, he just told me that the tried to play it, but there is no bootscreen coming up. Is it possible to repair it?

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on October 27, 2008, 04:24:53 PM
There could be several issues, some easy, some technologically complex. I often have trouble getting pirates to work because the pins on the board don't line up properly with some consoles' connector -- Famicom, Twin or Famiclones. That may be the problem, which sometimes requires you to remove the board from the cart to place it properly in the Famicom -- I actually think that's the most common issue. Then, there's that "static event" 133MHz has mentioned, which pretty much knocks out the game, and then sometimes it's repairable damage to the board, like a bad connection from pins to chips, or whatever.

I want to find a cheap copy of MOTHER that comes with both box and instructions for cheap, but the one I've seen on eBay go for 50 or so bucks, which is actually kind of expensive for me. I saw a copy for only 19.99 on eBay, so I'm curious. With box and manual, how cheap could I find a copy?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: michaelthegreat on November 06, 2008, 02:29:07 AM
I think if you found one complete in japan for $20, the condition wouldn't be all that great. I think 40-50 wouldn't be a horrible price to pay for a good complete copy.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on November 06, 2008, 02:58:26 AM
A long, long time ago, I remember a copy featherpluck sold @ $35ish. I almost bought it, but then remembered that I don't collect CIB.

Prices for *complete* Mother have gone up in the last years. Complete copies will run you between 30 and 60$, depending on the condition.
Cart only is quite cheap.

My friend is interested in selling his CIB and mint Asian version NES with a couple CIB games.
The games are Super Mario Bros, and two Hi Q Spica games.  One is a multicart, the other is some sort of Disney game.   I can find very little information on the system and games, what would a fair price be for them?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on November 27, 2008, 12:22:59 AM
Hard to say, since I don't know much about it. I'd think it could get close to $100, maybe more as a package. I see CIB Asian systems listed for $80 quite often, but I don't know if they sell. Better place to find out is NintendoAGE.

That should be between 75 - 90$; no more then that.
As tampered systems are worthless in some cases; simply because NES 2 is already rare and messing with a rare system is not good.

Ouch, on ebay I bought a non-modded NES model 2, with 2 square controllers, 2 NES Max Controllers, a Zapper and 3 games for 75$.
Games - Double Dragon, Dragon Warrior and Hogans Alley

When did you buy your NES 2?

Was it before 2006, because they were worth more then... Stupid Yobo's, Retro Duo's, Generation NEX and such caused the official toploader to lose value sadly.

NES 2, 101 Toploader has suffered badly because of clone systems; like 2005 it was worth 125$ - 175$ then like 2006 and on it quickly dropped in value to its now worth of $50 - 80.

Dude Top loaders are easy to come but I know where more than 5 are for under $60. I paid $100 shipped with one controller and 14 loose NES games but some great one's like Dragon Warrior, SMB3, MT Punch Out and more. I absolutely hate RFU signals and it is what has kept me from rebuying a NES, well that and the fact I will not buy a toaster again. So I saw this and drooled and snatched it up asap. I just wish a RGB mod was easier to preform as it is my only console that isn't able to output RGB display's but it is till bounds above RFU any day of the week. So it seems as if I didn't over pay that much, he was asking $175 plus shipping but offered him $100 shipped and he scooped it up. :)

They arent easy to come by, I have seen 2 in person during my lifetime.
The other one I saw was in a gaming store but it wasnt for sale they only had it to demonstrate how much better the toploader was then the toaster.

None of my friends had even seen one until I showed them mine; so if you have a store with 5 of them I want to see that store.

I could buy them at 60$ bring them back here and sell them for 85$ or more to people.

Man there is Gametraders and Games Express here and both have multiple ones for sale. As a matter of a fact they don't even keep toasters out in display cases as they try to push toploaders. And I could repair it as well but when I got rid of it on the early 90's when the replacements weren't readily avalible. Besides I don't want to have to repair a console I just want it to work so I got this as I won't have ot worry about that problem. Kinda like a 360 in my mind you just know that one day instead of a RRoD you are waiting on a blinking light. Sure they are both easy to fix but I would rather just avoid it if possible. In this case I got a neat little toploader and in M$ case I threw it in te trash and never got another :lol:


 If you want one I will get you one for $60 or I can point you to several people online that you can pay via paypal and have the security of paypal.  Everyone says the SNES 2 is expensive but I only paid $20 for mine, well $29 shipped as I chose a flat rate box over UPS for my shipping.

Hello,

Somebody just told he'd sell his pirate famicom games to me, but he told me to make an offer.
The problem is, I've never bought pirate games before and I have no idea how much these worth.

Can you help me please ? What would be your offer for all these games (not counting shipping) :

Well I don't know much either, but....

The SMB2j cart looks pretty professional, a good one like that is worth about $40 I think...maybe more...

And not all of those games are pirated...I see Spartan X, which even though it's only worth about $3 or $4, it's real
And the blue Mah-Jong cart is real too, I think..I saw one exactly like it on famicomshop..

And I lol'd at the Sigari DingDong ...with Doreamon characters on the front  :D

Exactly. The only two interesting games are SMB2j, which you can find for $10-20, and Super Contra 7 on one of the multicarts, assuming it's actually on the multi.

I'd put the value at about $75. I've gotten those disks from JP for about a $1 each. And you can get Twins from JP for about $30. But, of course, these are already exported, so they'll cost more.

Title: Re: Price Check

I'd say no more than $10 each with shipping.

Gosh, varies in price a lot from what I see. I'd say it could fall anywhere between $40 and $80.

I got my CIB Family Basic for about $35 from Japan. The V3 would probably cost you more, though.

Keep in mind though, a CIB weighs about 5-6lbs.  That cost roughly $50 or so to ship.

I've never seen the Irem casing duplicated by piraters. I think it's legit, maybe an early release or a mistake. I've never seen one on YHJ, though. That is, if it's rare...if it's not rare, then I've probably not paid any attention to it on YHJ.

Very hard to find. Funny thing is they sell for only a few bucks in China. By the time they make it to eBay or forums, the price is in the hundreds. I think someone was asking $700 for the FFVII CIB. It's hard to put a value on them. It depends on the level of sanity of the buyer.

Title: Re: Price Check

I thought it would be more!

I guess that the PAL version is actually more rare. The game was only released in scandanavia there, and at the moment there is one cartrdige only at 50€ at some Finnish auctions but it ends in 4 days.
There is also one with box and manual (not in a very good shape) for 750$ on ebay but this one is just insane...

I am in posession of an old Nintendo NES cartridge that has 110 games on it. On the back it lists the games from 1-110 in English and on the bottom is has some Chinese or Japanese writing with a PacMan symbol. It also has 4 pictures of different games right on the pacman symbol. It is a light grey cartridge without a label on the front. I want to knowif anyone every saw this cartridge before and or if anyone know what it's worth? I saw on one site one of the games listed on my cartridge as # 80 (Clu Clu Land) which ispriced at $1000-$3000 - I wanted to get an idea what my cartridge is worth.

If this Famicom?  Anyone know anything?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on March 20, 2009, 09:53:23 PM
Is it a Famicom cart or a NES cart?  NES carts are big and have 72 pins, and Famicom carts are small and have 60 pins.

Most multis aren't worth much unless the cart itself is rare.  It doesn't matter if it has a rare game on it.

Do you have a picture?


Title: Re: Price Check

Also most of those prices are nonsense anyway.

So unfortunately it's not woth more than $20 really, which means you're probably better off keeping it - but if you do want to sell someone here will buy it off you for that.

You could try ebay, but multicarts are usually taken straight off ebay by the people monitoring the auctions, technically they're not legal.

It was at a yard sale and all of the video game stuff was ridiculously overpriced, or so I thought. They had SMB3 for $25 and SMB/Duck Hunt for $20, apparently they just gave arbitrary prices not knowing what anything was worth. God I should have bought Stack Up.

The Clu Clu Land racketboy is referring to is the Disk Writer Version which is entirely different than Clu Clu Land on cart.

Even with the paper manual, it sells for 40,000 - 60,000Y or roughly ($450-$650).

Your 110-n-1 is likely worth $15 tops.

thanks medisynel so realisticly about $20

Post by: Medisinyl on April 10, 2009, 10:29:43 AM
Looks like something you could get more than $20 for too though.  If you are trying to sell it on eBay, I'd start a listing at perhaps $29.99/24.99+shipping or so and see what happens.  Unless someone familiar with it chimes in.  But the one listed on eBay now offers free airmail from Japan, so he won't be getting the full $50 (- fees on top of that as well).  That seller has also been known to have some high prices as well, but I've seen some good deals from him too.

/\  In that case, your market may be quite different on those items anyway than selling from the US or Japan. 

Someone was asking about a carrying case for FDS games recently--they may like to know what those in the photo are being carried in--there is a thread somewhere asking that recently. -- Here: http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=3343.0

If I were to sell my Kaettekita Mario Bros., what should I expect to get for it?  It is a legit disk with both labels in perfect condition.  It seems to be quite rare as I never see it on eBay. 


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on April 22, 2009, 02:08:04 AM
It sells for about $15-20 in Japan, iirc. I wanted to buy it a while back but haven't paid attention lately. I'd assume it'd go for about double here. It's rarer here, of course.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: ckenda1 on April 22, 2009, 11:06:06 PM
Loose Kaettekita Disks are about $20 in Japan.  I sell them for $30 loose when I have them, which is cheap for it already being in the US.

Like JC said, you could probably get $30-$40.

/\  Thanks for those responses--I plan to list it here soon.  What about the value on the Street Fighter II I got?  This one actually has "Street Fighter" written on the title screen and actual character names, so I wondered what effect that has over Master/Super, etc.  Though it only seems to have 4 characters to play, but it seems like the better quality game over the Super Fighter 3 I have that has more characters.

I've found it to be kinda hard to find the SFII title screen. The carts I get are always MFII. I wouldn't think it'd be valued too much higher. But, you know, I remember a long time ago when a MF was listed on eBay at the same time as an SF, the MF sold for much less and SF sold for more, but still not much more than $15 anyway.

Hi guys, Am new here. Just got a CIB Famicom (circa 1986/87 model) and CIB Famicom Disk System few days ago. Am SOOO loving both of them. I'm now on the lookout for some FC games. Just won Ninja Gaiden III and Double Dragon II.. I was on eBay and saw Adventure Island IV for USD 110. Is it worth that much? Thanks guys..


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: manuel on April 28, 2009, 10:43:13 AM
It seems to be one of the pricier carts.
I saw it in a shop last week for 11000 Yen (CIB). That's 110$.

If you want and tell me your price (most you are willing to pay) and what you prefer (cart only or complete), I can look for it. Drop me a pm if you're interested.

You can check out my shop as well.  I don't have Adventure Island 4 (had 2 copies at one point though), but I have a bunch of FDS titles, etc.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on May 05, 2009, 06:48:40 PM
It's hard to judge its worth, because it's not a widely known game. What I've found is games like Somari -- which is crap -- can sell for $25-40, but good games that are less well known, like the Shin-chan unlicensed original, wouldn't sell for much, like $10-15, even though I'm asking $25 in my sale thread.

I'd say you'd be lucky to get $10 for this from most people, but I'll give you more. PM me if it's for sale.

In Japan or elsewhere in the world?

In Japan a complete Neunzhen can sell for well over $100.  Elsewhere $30-$45.

Zelda sells for about $30 complete most places.

I actually have copies of each if you are interested.  Thanks

I apologize if I request a price check on an item that already got checked.

I'm going to digital Press to get some NES stuff and I want to know the maximum amount of money I should be paying before the price is "ridiculous". Here's the list:

NES Max
NES Advantage
NES ac adaptor
Konami Laser Scope
U Force
Pacman
Paperboy
Game Genie
Ghostbusters
Double Dragon
Contra
Battletoads
Top Gun
Miracle Piano (cart and/or bundle with piano)
and finally: SNES controller

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on July 03, 2009, 12:20:02 AM
I'd say they're both worth about $13-18, unless they're HoneyBee, which would be $25-45 -- there's one large HoneyBee for the front-loading NES (for Famicom games) that's worth the most, I'd think, since it doesn't require a ribbon.

If you decided to sell anything seperately, let me know. I wouldn't mind owning a complete AV Famicom, and also interested in your Gimmick! cart...

You'll definitely get more if you sell the things separately.
If you're not unlucky you should be able to at least get 350$.

Here is the a clip from racketboys website. hidden gemscheapest gamesgame roomsrare & valuablegame artThe Rarest and Most Valuable NES Games

Considering how much of a nostalgic powerhouse the NES is, there should be little surprise that Nintendo’s 8-bit library is filled with so many collectors pieces. And opposed to the Super Nintendo’s rare and valuable list, the most desirable NES games are not necessarily the most popular games. Because of the unassuming nature of these titles, you may be unaware of the treasures that could be found in a local garage sale, flea market, or your own closet.



In stark contrast to the Cheapest Games series, this series by JJ Hendricks and racketboy will round up the rarest and most valuable games for a given console or handheld so you’ll know what to look for whether you are buying or selling. JJ owns VideoGamePriceCharts.com writes a Video Game Pricing Blog which analyzes video game prices, pricing trends, and charts historic video game prices. He used his pricing statistics to find both the average selling price and the highest selling price for each game over the last two months.

Below you will see two prices beside each title. The first is the average daily selling price, which is typically the going rate for the cartridge by itself. The second price is the highest daily selling price of recent history. The list is ordered by the balance of the two prices. Note that some of these games are not rare in the sense that there are not many available, but rare relative to demand, which makes the games expensive. It is also worth nothing that we are not including prototype or one-of-a-kind cartridges.

Limited Edition Collectibles
 1990 Nintendo World Championships: Gold Edition: $5,100 - $20,000
1990 Nintendo World Championships: Grey Cartridge: $4,000 - $6,100
Rarity =
In 1990, Nintendo famously held a gaming tournament in Los Angeles, California, not unlike the one in the finale of the cult classic film, The Wizard. While admittedly a mainstream competition (most of us could have won with no problem), the event was a high point in Nintendo’s glamorous reign at the top of the gaming market, and is remembered by many with great enthusiasm. After its promotion in the popular Nintendo Power and through the Powerfest tour, kids everywhere practiced feverishly in hopes of heading to this event, seeing the wonder of light and sound, playing some Rad Racer, and winning it all.The actual game is a timed compilation of three titles, each adjusted for the tournament, and containing a unique scoring system. Players begin the challenge by completing the first world of Super Mario Bros., then must finish a quick lap in Rad Racer before taking off to Tetris where the remaining time runs out. The game then multiplies your Rad Racer and Tetris scores, adds all three results, and lets you know how well you did. It is hardly a real test of skill by today’s standards, but the physical remains of the competitions is thousands of dollars worth of score-crunching fun.The 1990 Nintendo World Championships: Gold Edition was the contest prize in one of Nintendo Power’s monthly promotions. One grand prize winner and twenty-five equally as fortunate runners-up were each sent a single copy (which makes 26 copies in the wild). The more common grey cartridges were the ones actually used in the tournaments and were then given to each of the finalists. The grey carts had a print run of 90 and has a monochromatic label and, like a lot of EPROM exposed prototypes, has a hole in its casing, but for displaying dipswitches.What gives these competition cartridges an incredible dynamic is that, while so few copies exist, they were distributed to winners throughout all of North America. Many rare/prototype games and systems with this low of a production, had their entire allotment sent to or found in a single localized area. Combine this with the fact that only about half of the cartridges have reportedly surfaced, so there are still more out there hidden in somebody’s closet, garage sale, or flea market.Even though these are cartridge-only releases, condition can be a large factor. A grey cartridge surfaced this past week on eBay (and will be closing soon after this article is published) that has a torn label on the front. They are asking $6,000, but I would expect collectors to pay significantly less for that kind of damage. On a side note an official 1990 Nintendo World Championship Insider Guide recently sold for $114 on eBay. Looks like anything connected to the even is worth a nice chunk of change.

Coveted Unlicensed Games
The NES had a number of unlicensed titles that didn’t receive the Nintendo Seal of Approval. Since most of them had a very limited release, it isn’t a surprise that many are worth quite a bit.

 Myriad 6 in 1: $700 - $2,900
6-in-1 (Caltron): $525 - $2080
Rarity =

The 6-in-1 Myriad cart and its sibling, the Caltron 6-in-1 have become some of the more standout collector’s items on the Nintendo Entertainment System. As the name suggests, they are a collection of 6 games, which are about as good as you’d expect from an independent, unlicensed title.While the games themselves was released many times, these actual carts were released twice, the other time from Caltron, who reportedly went bankrupt during it’s production. Myriad Games would later acquire the leftover carts, shipping them out in a new box, and with a numbered label for the price of $69.That sum might have seemed steep then, but it would be a steal for that today. While it might be slightly outdated information, a Digital Press posting lists #888 is the highest number found, so it’s unlikely that more than a thousand exist. The original Caltron 6-in-1 release is about equally as hard to find, but generally commands a tad less than the Myriad.Look for Myriad 6 in 1 on eBa

 Bubble Bath Babes: $900 - $1,275
Peek A Boo Poker: $705 - $1,352
Hot Slots: $605 - $1,352 Rarity =
The games from adult publisher, Panesian, obviously didn’t meet Nintendo’s strict content guidelines. And even without the whole Seal of Approval business, the chances of your average retailer carrying the games would be pretty slim. So what was Panesian (the publisher) to do? Ship it only to video stores as a mail-order release. I’m not sure it can be said how many copies are out there, but it is presumably less a thousand.It is very easy to imagine, even with the game’s immense rarity, that you could walk into a flea market, thrift shop or video store and discover one of these games hidden away for a dollar. Why is that? The game wasn’t packaged in the cardboard box typical of most NES releases, but rather in a VHS-esque movie case. The copies still left unclaimed for are most likely shoved in with regular old movies rather than games, meaning there are plenty of unsearched places to look for it.Bubble Bath Babes is a puzzle game featuring an 8-bit rendered, unclothed female at the bottom of the screen. Peek A Boo Poker and Hot Slots are your standard poker and slot machine games with extra “character” so to speak.Judging from the cover art, I think we all have an idea of what kind of video store might still contain it…but a grail is a grail, and this one goes for over half a grand, so don’t hesitate to uncover a copy for yourself (or for eBay).The prices for each of these games seems to be skyrocketing over the last few years. Just a few years ago, you could find these pop up on eBay for $500 or less. Since then they have nearly doubled in price if recent successful eBay auctions are any indication. I have not seen a completed auction of Bubble Bath Babes in a while, but that is not surprising as it is considered the rarest and most valuable of the trio. Considering the recent prices of both Peek A Boo Poker and Hot Slots, one could come to the conclusion that a complete copy of Bubble Bath Babes could raise more than $1400.

If you want to get a landmark NES collection off to a good start, here are all three in one auction.

 Cheetahman II: $400 - $503
Rarity =
Thinking back to the early 1990s, you can probably easily recall how incredibly popular the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were (at least in the US). The Cheetahman franchise was a relatively bizzare attempt to capitalize on the idea of humanoid animal action heroes. (I guess those at Active Enterprises thought it sounded like a good idea). In addition to the unlicensed Nintendo games, the publisher actually had high hopes of cashing in with action figures, t-shirts, a cartoon TV show before the word spread of the the series’ lack of quality.Despite the franchise’s lackluster performance a second installment of Cheetahmen was completed, although not officially released. Eventually, but 1997 all of the reported 1,500 copies of the game left their warehouse and were sold to the public. However, once people actually played the game, they realized there was more to its cancellation than it’s namesake. To this day it is known as one of the most unplayable games of all time.Check for Cheetahmen II on eBay

Treasured Standard USA Releases
 Stadium Events: $275 - $1,000
Rarity =
What makes this otherwise standard game so rare, is that just after its release, it was recalled. As an official third party title, Stadium Events made use of an accessory called the Family Fun Fitness Pad. It required the player(s) to run or step rapidly in order to complete each event. Upon its release, Nintendo decided to grant the game a first party production, recalling the scant initial cartridges that had been sent out.The game would later become “World Class Track Meet” and would be played with Nintendo’s own controller the “Power Pad”. Both became very common and were boxed-in with many NES consoles. But Stadium Events, the original anomaly, had snuck out in ever so limited numbers. 2000 copies is believed to have been the total distribution tally, but doesn’t consider how many of those were sold prior to Nintendo’s recall. Some have suggested that no more than 200 actually made it into NES owners’ homes.

 Bubble Bobble Part 2: $56 - $163
Rarity =
If you’re an old-school gaming fan, it is hard not to love the Bubble Bobble franchise. The original is a common mainstay in the NES library, but Bubble Bobble Part 2 was released in 1993 which was very late in the NES’s life span. Two years after the SNES was released actually. Because of this the game never sold very well and became very rare.
Check for Bubble Bobble Part 2 on eBay
 Little Samson: $55 - $150
Rarity =
Little Samson is a gem of a platformer developed by Taito to try and mimic the huge success of other platforming games on the NES. Even though it did a good job in terms of graphics and gameplay, it didn’t quite have the marketing power to prevent it from selling poorly. Now that NES fans are delving back into the large library looking for Hidden Gems, Little Samson has risen in value.

 California Raisins: $45 - $1,000
Rarity =
California Raisins was developed by Capcom but was never released commercially. The game was largely completed in 1991, but due to the diminishing fame of the claymation namesakes, it was never sold in stores and led to it becoming a rare treasure to collectors. You can find cartidges on eBay every now and then, but complete copies are elusive and have been known to fetch around $1,000

 Dragon Warrior IV: $45 - $128
Rarity =
Dragon Warrior IV is the final NES installment of the popular Enix RPG series. The game was another classic case of a game coming out too late in the NES’s life to sell very well. The game received much critical praise when it was released. As a matter of fact, Nintendo Power rated it the 2nd best game of the year. The best sale of recent history was this complete and pristine copy that went for nearly $130. Keep in mind, that isn’t sealed — a sealed copy would go for far more - especially since it is part of such a popular franchise.

 Snow Brothers: $49 - $80
Rarity =
Snow Brothers is an arcade port that is very similar to Bubble Bobble in terms of style. The game did not sell very well despite its solid gameplay. In fact, Ocean had licensed the game for the Amiga and Atari ST but canceled the games part way through development because of perceived bad sales.
Check for Snow Brothers on eBay
 Fire ‘N Ice: $45 - $153
Rarity =
Fire N Ice is the sequel to the NES favorite, Solomon’s Key (and is called Solomon’s Key 2 in Europe and Japan). Like many rare NES games, it was released in after the NES lost popularity and did not sell well. The name change in the US probably didn’t help any either. However, once again, releasing an NES game in 1993 was a recipe for creating a collector’s item.
Check for Fire N Ice on eBay
 Duck Tales 2: $37 - $130
Rarity =
Duck Tales 2 is the sequel to the original Duck Tales game on the NES and is, of course, based on the Disney TV series that many of us grew up with. The single biggest determinant in the game being hard to find now and a collector’s item, it was released in 1993. I wish I was still buying NES games back in 1993 instead of moving onto the SNES and Genesis.
Check for Duck Tales 2 on eBay
 The Flintstones: The Surprise at Dinosaur Peak: $75 - $250
Rarity =
As the NES era drew to a close, publishers like Taito released many of their games exclusively to game rental companies while bypassing the traditional retail market. The Flintstones II is the best example of this in the US, but is a bit easier to find in Europe. Of course, since it was primarily a rental game, finding a complete copy in good condition is especially challenging.
Check for Flintstones: The Surprise at Dinosaur Peak on eBay
 Stack Up (Complete): $160 - $248
Rarity =
Remember R.O.B. The Robot? Gyromite may be the most popular game to play with the NES’s early companion, but Stack Up was yet another option for our friend. I’m putting this on the bottom of the list because the game itself isn’t very rare (can be found for about $15), but it is very hard to find in complete condition due to all the pieces that were included.

They seem to be rare now. The original price was 2394 Yen, about 24$. If you need to have it, even in Japan you'd have to shell out over 100$ for sure, but in the end it's only a controller. IMO it's not worth spending 200$ on a simple controller.

Clu Clu Land, not at all. Obake no Qtarou, maybe. If the main character is gold in color, then I'd say it would be worth more than the regular version, which has a white main character, I think.

1 and 2 are usually a bit more expensive than 3-6.

I only can speak for prices in Japan, which differ wildly from time to time, but you should be prepared to pay any amount  between 15 and 40$ for 1 and 2 and around half of that for 3-6.

I know of a few that play NES games, but with a converter, will do just the same thing.  I have an FC Mobile, which I got off eBay for $30 shipped.  They're also a lot easier to find than Game Axes.  The reason GAs are so much is because of their quality.  They don't run on a NOAC IIRC.

That looks like a lot from my favorite eBay seller -- well, my favorite from back when I used to buy lots on eBay. If it's the same one, he's probably got a BIN...it's worth that price.

Assumingly anyways. CaH4e3 has it on his website and I tried asking for anything that looks like the picture he has there from some multi-cart. I'd hope it's the right game. You know pirates and their labels :P

Edit: Well, I payed for it anyways now. I just hope it turns out to be the right game rather than some hack like a Bugs Bunny Castle game  :-\ But I still would like to know how much it's worth. As with a lot of stuff I'll possibly play until I get bored with it and then sell it.

Judging by NT-876 title, there could be a Earthworm Jim 3 on it's own cart.  I don't have it, so I can't be 100% sure.  I have it on a 3 in 1 (KT8003), the same cart cart as JC in the pirate section of famicomworld.

What's the general worth of cart to FDS games? Some titles go for more than others or are they all about just as rare?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on September 25, 2009, 02:16:19 AM
I know those are definitely more obscure than FDS to cart games, but I guess I'm not sure if they're as rare or not.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: FamicomFreak on September 27, 2009, 02:30:39 AM
that's a good question. I think that some of them are harder to find and more obscure and well unique so their prices are higher. I wonder if there is any FDS game worth more than 100 dollars other than all night nippon....


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on September 27, 2009, 03:17:55 AM
The worth of FDS to cart games is based on the game, not rarity or anything else. For example, I can get tons of Doki Doki Panic carts, but they sell for $60 and up. I've never seen some disk games on cart but if I did and tried to sell them here, I'd be luck to get $20. So, in terms of range, $20-150 per cart. The high end is Doki and All Night Nippon.

Don Doko Don isn't rare but isn't the easiest to find. I'd put it at less than $8. I don't know anything about Conker's Bad Fur Day. Rockman 5 CIB less than $23. And Contra complete? Does that mean with or without the Konami card? With $50ish, without $40ish. But I don't buy complete ever so I could be wrong.

I can't find what was being referred to here, but it sounds like you had that same cart I've got.  Odd Mario 4 label with a hacked SMB2j game (you play SMB3 Mario, stars make you fly, etc.).  Hadn't heard of another one with that game, so I was interested to know if another one was found (I had been told chip'n'dale was found on another cart with the same label before).  One of the coolest carts I own IMO.

Very good.  After shipping, you're paying roughly $2 per game.  There are quite a few games I could pick out that are worth over that.  Such as Hoshi no Kirby, 4 Pulse Lines, Doraemon, Tetris, and a boxed Famicom game, which is pretty cool.

Dunno about Duck Tales (as far as a hack is concerned, but I had both games as a kid and they are both great), but there is a Rockman hack of Darkwing Duck (DD is very similar to Rockman to begin with, so I expect it works well). Rockman Special is what I saw on eBay some months back with this hack.

I think the one I saw was asking 9.99 or 14.99 + 15 shipping and didn't sell...  I used to keep that seller in my watch list, but will have to go looking for who that was again (Progressive123 or something similar to that name).   EDIT: tried searching the seller on eBay, and can find members close to that name (and the same exact name suggested), but not the right one, and they weren't in the US.

Also common finds are, various 64 in 1, 120 in 1 ect...Rockman series, bubble bobble, super contra, felix, dragon ball z (2, 3 and 4)

You might as well ask how much every game ever pirated is worth. :P That's too many to go through each one. I guess someone might try. I'd say the vast majority, because of the games or the condition are worth $15 or less. You'd have trouble selling some of those for more than $2.50. The only ones worth anything to people on here, from the sales I've done, are Somari, the Sonic multi and the higher number (60+ games) multis.


Title: Re: Price Check

let me put it another way...i dont need values for all of these...if you want any of them just tell me which one and the price you'd pay (eg. felix) and ill see if its cheap enough to pick it up

They're not my auctions, just the same site that my friend buys from.

PLEASE, everyone.  I need hard price offers for what you want (weather its on the list or not) because I need to know how much to "max bid".  Please PM me with how much you'd pay.  I don't know what stuff is worth.

Sorry, but I haven't reserved anything for anyone yet...

I'm still getting the auction numbers to my friend who should be able to pick them up.  The pictures were just examples of the kinds of things I found, not the only things available, nor do I know if everything in the pictures is still available...I will try my hardest to get wanted stuff, but I can't reserve anything just yet.  If you want something, let me know....if its the same as what another user wants, I'm sure I can find more than one...

Again, sorry I cant guarantee anything just yet, but I'll keep you informed as I go...

Is a pirate nowhere near that?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on October 24, 2009, 05:09:15 AM
Not even close.  Planet_Haxxor usually sells single-cart Recca pirates for around $30 in good condition.  I have a multicart that contains Pokemon Green, Spartan X 2, Chip & Dale 2, and Recca that I got for $25.


Title: Re: Price Check

Post by: nintendodork on October 24, 2009, 05:15:42 AM
It definitely is, even if a pirate isn't worth much.  It's a great game to own.  It's a great shmup.  Best you'll ever see on the Famicom.  It still surprises me even after how many times I've played it how there is virtually no slowdown during gameplay.


Title: Re: Price Check

@ nintendodork, castlevania 1 is expensive mabey up to 90. Castlevania legend is about 30. And dracula kun about 10 to 15. (all loose)
my question is an official Kyoryu sentai zyuranger (power ranger 2) the official cart? Is it rare, how much


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on October 24, 2009, 06:35:49 AM
I've seen Castlevania CIB (or at least boxed) for $50.  There's no way a loose version of the first game is supposed to cost $90.

I'd prefer the price of both, I guess.  I thought there was only a disk version of the first one.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: sumguy on October 24, 2009, 04:41:46 PM
Guys...I can't reserve anything until I actually have it in hand, plus I'd be more apt to sell it to the person who offers the most rather than who PM'd me first.  That last post was mainly to see what people are interested in rather than an actual 'I'm selling such-and-such" thread.  I'm still working on getting them and will bring them home with me in December.  Then I'll post a real selling thread.

Please, If your worried about not getting something you want, tell me and I'll look for multiples.

what's the name of that game that's like Whack-a-Mole and it comes with a little hammer and a mat?

Super Mogura Tataki!!
I have an extra cart of the game, but only one mat & mallet, so that's not for sale. If you want the cart, let me know.

Akumajo Dracula cart is expensive, somewhere around $100. Kid Dracula I'd say $20.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on October 26, 2009, 12:21:32 AM
I never understood why the AD cart is so expensive.  I think it was nensondubois who posted one that he got CIB from JapanGameStock for $50.

Edit* Oh, wait, that was Akumajo Denetsu, not Dracula. >_>  Sucks to hear that it's so much. 


Title: Re: Price Check

It was a late release, as the original release was on the FDS. In1993 Famicom sales weren't what they were five years earlier.

Hi, this is more of a rarity check, but how rare is Pika, the hack of Nuts and Milk? I have it, but ive never seen it anywhere else.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on October 31, 2009, 05:16:14 AM
If a hack isn't extremely popular, chances are you won't see it a lot -- if ever again.  I have seen this hack on multicarts from 3 different people selling them on FW at one time or another, though.  So if that's any indication, I guess.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: ericj on October 31, 2009, 05:33:33 AM
I have 4 different hacks, including the Pika one, of Nuts & Milk, so I doubt it's worth very much.

The Power Ranger games aren't worth much, a few dollars each, maybe up to $5. The JY Power Ranger original is worth the most, between $20 and $30. Funny how that happens.

PC on a consolized MVS?  I'm seriously thinking about buying one.  I don't have the space for another cabinet, so I figure this is the way to go.

Oh, and one of those yellow 100 in 1 multis.

It's for the MVS.  It's probably Chinese, and it's yellow.  Here's a picture:

Any info on the following would be greatly appreciated :)

Duck Tales 2
The Flintstones: The Surprise at Dinosaur Peak
--Both Famicom Pirates

general value of 100+game multi-carts without anything particularly uncommon...
Mario series hacks... (any more valuable than others...?)

4in1s with at least 1 of the following:
Summer Carnival, Tekken, Mortal Kombat 4, Mortal Kombat 5, Sonic 5, Pokemon, SnowBros...

Thanks!




Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: sumguy on December 08, 2009, 02:04:01 PM
Its just called Tekken.  I haven't bought the 4in1s yet since they're a bit expensive and I don't know if they're worth it.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on December 08, 2009, 02:16:58 PM
A multi with Recca (Summer Carnival) should get you upwards of $20, depending on the other games.  I know single pirates actually go for about $25 or $30.  The ones with Pokemon on them, I'm assuming you're talking about the ones that are graphics hacks under the names Pokemon Red and Blue.  Those are about the same, maybe a little more. Multicarts totally range depending on who made them, how many unique games they have, etc.  But for how you're describing it, probably no more than $15 at the most-- and that's pushing it.  Mario 8 is kind of sought after here on the forums, I remember a few people having that in their want lists.  I'd say the Mario series games are worth anywhere from $15-$25.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: sumguy on December 09, 2009, 06:31:22 AM
Thanks Nintendodork and MasterDisk.  There's probably a good chance I'll get them in the near future.

I just have to say, stumbling on some old pirates a couple of months ago has got me more excited about collecting.  At first I just signed up here to find out which ones were worth anything, but something about the weirdness of it all has got under my skin...and everyone on this forum is awesome.  I think I'm here to stay...

Awhile back I was in a bidding war for just a Famicom converter it was a spica and went for $56. And I recently found a guy who will sell me the following for $40 shipped. I was wondering if it was worth the price?

(http://i48.tinypic.com/2hrcs50.jpg)


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: NintendoKing on December 20, 2009, 04:27:17 PM
The converter is worth maybe 15$,but if it comes with those games the multicart maybe 15-20$ and the powerjoy cart maybe 10$.
So essentially its right on the value of it if you get the 2 carts also, its not worth more then that.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on December 20, 2009, 05:30:03 PM
I'd say so because each of those are worth over $10.  That multicart might have some cool games on it too.  Power Joy is also a popular multi.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Tim Sorenson on December 20, 2009, 06:10:26 PM
Does the converter have any problems on the "Toaster style" NES?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: NintendoKing on December 20, 2009, 07:13:59 PM
Nope, that specific kind with the ribbon should work perfectly on a toaster NES; some converters are made only for a toploader but that one isnt.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: NintendoKing on December 26, 2009, 03:20:39 PM
$35 ?? I payed $9 for it.

And price check for a SNES "UA Universal Adaptator Expert Version" by Datel

Yes because your from Switzerland, items not so common are worth more here.
Also I meant to say 25$. But still a good profit for you.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nintendodork on December 30, 2009, 04:01:22 AM
It's sought-after, not necessarily rare.  Which, even though it doesn't make sense, tends to result in lower prices than rare items no one is going to actually play and only keep for a collection.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: NintendoKing on January 02, 2010, 11:55:59 PM
Its like regular Contra on NES.
Its extremely common but it still goes for 9$ since its so sought after.

Chill out.  He's just trying to help. ::)

Remember that something is only worth what people will pay, and in the U.S, I doubt anyone would pay more than $70 for something such as that.  And besides, if you think that's stupid, JC got his for $5.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: JC on February 14, 2010, 06:04:48 PM
Mine was $5 because I got it direct from Taiwan. In the US, either full 45 in 1 could get $75 plus, I'd think.

Oooh, been wanting that one since it was sorta one of my first pirates if I remember correctly. Pirate nostalgia :P

I imagine if Vash were selling it it'd be around $8-$15 or something. There's really no definite price for anything though, depends on what the person selling it thinks its worth, especially since I don't think I've ever seen it for sale before.

I have it for the Famicom and the gameplay is pretty bad, as you can tell by the video.

EDIT: Just played it again, and the gameplay and controls aren't as bad as I remembered. It's a pretty fun original based on Felix the Cat.

Sorry about the crappy picture. The FDS is bought really cheap from GDHK and is a hack so that you swim through the entire game...

I will upload a video of the sonic game if people are interested. Haven't seen it before.

Oh, I got that quite a bit cheaper than that ^__^

I actually though that Sonic would be the highest value since I haven't seen it before.

Bute then again, some pirates are flooded in some countries and nonexistent in others.


Any more help on the remaining would be appreciated.

Thanks  Gremlin

I meant to say $35+ but yea pretty much right. $45 would probably be a reasonable price if it included shipping.
And the Sonic cart is uber common probably worth about $5-$8.

I'm sorry for spamming the place with me questions but I got some more carts today. One looked interesting with ToyStory II on it. It was just a bomberman clone though =/

Well anyhow here are some pics, anything of value? I got this lot for 60 euro shipped, the FDS game with the tower was really bubble bobble which was a nice surprise :D

(http://pici.se/pictures/InFUSKNVd.jpg)

The 66 in one is really nice though, balloon fight, excitebike, mario, xevious etc. probably 20-25 unique games.

I also took 2 pics to show the menu of the multicarts:
first the 166in1 which is like 4-5 games
(http://pici.se/pictures/dWkhgSHVX.jpg)

and then the 76in1 which is like 25 unique titles.
(http://pici.se/pictures/dWEACOVog.jpg)


ericj:
I took two pictures of the game, hopefully this will sort it out for you. The game has another interesting feautre, when you press the shoot button, you automatically become big and throw a fireball, you can't die by normal enemies...

Post by: ericj on April 29, 2010, 05:38:08 PM
It's a common HK hack of SMB2J--there are other common versions--the two that come to mind are a "cartoonish" version and another where Mario has fireballs all the time but doesn't swim (and gets bigger/smaller when hit instead of losing a life--your version probably does the same).  It's worth the $4 you probably paid for it.

Omg, thats an excellent price for a loose ROB but it also includes the Gyros for Gyromite... so its an extreme deal!
Probably the deal of the year.

I'd say Earthworm Jim 2 by Super Game is the rarest. I've never seen in actual cartridge form. I only played the rom. Earthworm Jim 3 is the most common. I have it on a 3 in 1 cartridge. Earthworm Jim 2 by Shin Shin has 2 different labels (NT849 and NT855).

:)  Thanks for the link, but I'm definitely looking to price out a "new" copy.  I don't have anything against the used ones, but if I can get a new one for a similar price to a used, that's preferable.  The 9 or so FDS games I own right now were all bought new, and it's a fun feeling opening them myself.  As far as I can tell, the used prices on many of these games are relatively close, but I just want to check before posting a WTB or pulling the trigger on the next copy that pops up on ebay.

Neither would be above $10.  I got SMB2j CIB for $11, and I got a loose copy of VS. Excitebike (without a label or title card) for $5.  I would say each is worth probably $8 with the label and title card, less if it's missing either one of those.

I'm not sure this is the right place to post this, but I DO want to know if this is worth anything, even tho I gave it to a friend as a gift. I got this interesting game case from the seller on Rakuten I bought from. It was just tossed in to keep a Bastard!! cart w/ it's manual. I didn't even notice it was Nintendo brand right away b/c it was turned so the pic on it faced the manual. Here's a pic of the case:

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v332/mobiusclimber/sfccase.jpg)

As you can see, it's from Super Mario Bros 4: Super Mario World and has Mario riding Yoshi. Anyone know where is came from, how rare it is, and what it's worth? Next order I make from these guys I'm going to ask if they have any more of them, but I think it was just a fluke that I happened to get one. I'm thinking it's similar to the rental cases we got here in the US that have the Nintendo logo on them, but this is obviously way cooler. Also note it only fits a Super Famicom cartridge; an SNES one is too big.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: ericj on April 12, 2011, 01:30:36 PM
I'd estimate that cart at around $20. Little Samson isn't that easy to find, nor is Bonk's Adventure or Adventure Island 4. You probably couldn't find any of those games on a single cart for less than $8.

It looks like a pirate of Wai Wai World, and Wai Wai World isn't that expensive, so I would assume it's worth less than that.

So it is not rare at all?
Hm so if I got it for 15$ i payed more than it is worth? I thought it is rare and the gameplay was great... Ohh well...

Hey guys.

Just found a guy selling four pirated famicom carts here in my country so I need a quick price check on these 4 pirates:
(http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc508/kristinn_olafur/23042011367.jpg)

The games are Karate Champ, Legendary Wings, Super Mario Bros and Rygar.

How much would you value each of those and what do you think would be a reasonable offer for all 4 of them?

I already have the Super Mario Bros cart and a pirated Rygar (although in a slightly different cartridge), but I was thinking about grabbing those for trading later on if I can get them reasonably cheap.

Thanks in advance  :)


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: ericj on April 24, 2011, 01:02:28 AM
They're probably worth about $4-5 each, although Rygar may get around $6-7.

So what is considered a fair price for a Super Famicom Hotel Box that has Mario Kart, Mahjong, Golf, and Super Mario Collection? There is one for sale right now for $180 and $150 S&H. I probably won't be getting this one but I will be buying one in the next year or so hopefully and I have no idea what these usually go for.


Title: Re: Price Check

That seems fair actually because it includes good games.

I'd imagine about $10, given the rarity of the game.

I'd also say at least 250$. There are many common titles, but all are boxed and look like they're in great condition.
If I had to buy all those titles separately here in Japan I think I'd have to pay over 300$ easily.

Hi all, what is the going rate for a boxed/good condition Doropie?

I'm looking to sell on all the FC stuff here --> http://www.flickr.com/photos/dcharlie/sets/72157625941773841/

some of the items are gone, and i'm sure getting a bulk sale is largely impossible, but will cross check prices. My disadvantage is i want to give a good $ price, though my local currency is Yen (which is obviously off the scale stupidly strong right now) - so , if i come across as such i'm not being glib with some future pricing requests, just trying to get a good handle on board going rates rather than doing the Yen-->$ thing and getting laughed off the board! ;)

You sure didn't get many answers...

well, it's hard to say what rare games are worth, but you should ask at least 5000 yen.

I don't quite understand, what is wrong with asking for prices in yen? I have to convert the currency anyways...

You might be able to do a bulk sale. Some people here (like me) are into buying and selling, and we could buy your games in bulk. But you get more if you sell them separately.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: DCharlie on July 25, 2011, 12:54:47 PM
many thanks :) no problem asking in Yen i guess, just that Yen prices once converted don't look great. Still that's not really for me to decide , i guess that's for buyers :)

Will get an up-to-date list together and if anyone wants Doropie i guess i can let it go... :D

Loose, genuine (i.e. non-pirate) Famicom (i.e. not NES) games: $10 to $20 or so, depending on the condition and the buyer. This is due to demand, not rarity, mind you.  :bomb:

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Cheetahmen on September 12, 2011, 03:45:55 PM
Well I've never actually seen the first one before, but I'm sure some of the price would be determined on what version of Super Mario Bros. 2 is included. (The Japanese version is usually referred to as Gold Mario or something like that, while the western version is typically rebadged as Super Bros. 5 and based off the PAL version for reasons unknown) I haven't got a clue which one is included so I can't comment on it. That said, I was never very good with price valuing in general. :P


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: MasterDisk on September 12, 2011, 04:04:08 PM
1st: about $15, label is not original. if it doesn't have SMB2j, then about $7.
2nd: I'd say $13, hacks are popular but the ones included are quite common
3rd: $5 (maybe even less), it's very very common.
4th: If it's the Kaiser version i'd say: $30-$35, if it's the one without title screen graphics and without this cheat: d-pad up + Start, then it would only worth about $20. Or if it's Super Bros. 4, I think it has some extra features so about $30 (but I'm not sure, should ask to famiac).

First post! Found this clone system and couldn't resist picking it up. It's missing the AC adapter, but everything else looks great (minus the box). No clue on the value of clone systems, wasn't sure if this was any more or less than a standard Famicom. From a little research on the web this was also referred to as the "Terminator" system. I seemed to  find more info on the Terminator 2, however (judgment clone?). Guessing it's PAL. Figured this was the best place to ask about this one.

终结者 (literary "Ending Man" or one who is in the "Ending" line of work) is simplified Chinese and apparently means "The Terminator". Judging by that it's a Chinese clone and thus should be PAL as you guessed. I can't help about the price though sorry. We have to ask one of the experts here.

$25, it used to go for more but as our community grows many items have lost value.



For example when I bought Super Mario Bros. IV; it had a lot higher price ($20) as it was seemingly scarce but before we knew it we had many international members joining which lowered it's worth substantially to around $5.

fredj; It's really only portings, certain mario hacks and disk system conversions; they have value as they are interesting and usually fun to play for one reason or another.

For example, Mario IV is a simple hack of Armadillo with Mario and Luigi added into the game, Pocket Green is a hack of Kero Kero Kerropi 2 with a few pokemon characters using sprites taken from gameboy pokemon games, Sonic the Hedgehog/Earthworm Jim 3 are both portings from Sega Megadrive, Super Mario World is ported from Super Nintendo, Super Donkey Kong is a porting of Donkey Kong Land from original Gameboy and Super Mario Bros. 2J was a disk system conversion.

This one?

I would probably pay up to a max of $120 still as you can always buy a broken white famicom and replace the top shell greatly increasing the value of the beat up square button Famicom.

I think Holy Diver is kinda sought after, maybe ten or fifteen dollars or so resale.  Takeshi's Challenge loose maybe a couple bucks, there was a little surge in interest for that game back when the GameCenter CX episode was getting some notoriety but now everyone has realized that yes, it is just a kusoge.  Sadly I don't know anything about pirates so can't help you on Bubble Bobble.

Assuming you don't mis-match the system nameplate variation. Most systems have a FF (Famicom Family) logo on the nameplate, whereas the SBFC does not. You can also RetroBrite it with fantastic results.

At $36, you stole that. The controllers are worth more than that alone. If they don't work, or the buttons are loose, let me know.  :bomb:

I sold a Family Basic keyboard + cart for 50$ a while ago (and to somebody you know!). And by the way, it was mint and looked like it was never used. Too bad it didn't come with the box, though.

I see you're in Japan, too... You should be able to find it cheaper if you look around a bit in a bigger city (Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka...). I live in the middle of nowhere, so the prices I pay are always a bit higher.  :D

Maybe you should ask senseiman. He finds EVERYTHING for 100 Yen.  :crazy: (Yes, I'm bitter!  :octorok:) (Not really.  :bub:)

A bit of background on me. I am about to finish a small but quite longing collection of Super Nintendo games, NTSC, all Brand New Sealed - 3 games to go of 45 - almost like $4k with the high priced ones. Unlike the SNES I had as a kid which was a U.S SNES; I had a Famicom for my NES years - to do justice and for my loved passion for the small carts I will collect the games of my childhood for the platform I played them in. I have been out of the Famicom scene for quite some time as I spent a lot of time(1 1/2 yrs) on my SNES collection. I have been recommended to come here and join this community from a couple of friends at NA and Sealed Game Heaven. Anyway, I'll appreciate the input regarding the titles above. Ohh, no pirate carts.

Do you intend to buy from Japan or eBay?
I will give you some guide what they might cost in Japan...
I don't think anyone here knows all the prices exactly.

I base my estimations on the prices of other famicom games I have seen NIB, and then consider how rare and how popular the cart is.
It is likely totally wrong for several games.

Battle City - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 2000 yen
Bomberman - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - ?
Contra - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 8000 yen
Megaman - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - Rockman 1? - 20000 yen if you can find it.  
Super Mario Bros - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen
Super Mario Bros 3 - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen
Super Mario Bros USA(2) -- CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - ?
Duck Tales 1 + 2 - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 4000 each maybe
Castlevania -  CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - First one famicom cart? 30000 yen if you can find it. CV3 - 8000 yen
Chip n Dale: Rescue Rangers - - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - Hmm 5000 yen
Adventure Island - - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen
Felix the Cat - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - No such famicom game
Rygar - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 5000 yen
Balloon Fight - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 10000 yen
Excitebike - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 6000 yen
Galaga  - CIB 100% (Like new) or New. - 3000 yen

I really have no preference over where to have transactions. I have been an ebayer for a long time as would any collector. The only and major problem in the whole ordeal is that I don't know a thing about Japanese - the language. So there goes buying from Yahoo auctions, there goes buying from ebay jp etc - I really have 0 knowledge of Japanese. I figure this would be a big time impediment for many potential deals but definitely not the ultimate barrier. Considering that I got half of my  SNES sealed games on deals with other fellow collectors I am pretty sure that collecting Famicom will be the same. Half through official channels like ebay and half community involvement. For example, this site is in english so I am pretty sure I would end up dealing with some users here who might want to sell some of their copies or duplicates.

-------------------------------------------------------
Thanks a lot for giving me a price guide on some of those titles. The ones that you Identified as there being "no famicom" release I probably played them on pirate carts. I am moving slowly but steady on research about the titles I need - some which I figured I'll have to buy the NES release. Titles like Little Mermaid, TaleSpin - The NES- Only releases. I spent the last 2 days just writing down which titles I had played back in the day - 20 something yrs ago watching youtube vids etc. I want to get mostly all of the games on the list for the famicom and the NES-Only releases for last as they are easier for me to get where I hang....just pricier hehehehe.

I figure these are pirate carts then:

I got my Famicom when I was 6. The only legit Famicom carts I would get were gifts for my birthday or for ending school that my dad would buy from a store. Everything else I traded and ended up with some pirate carts hehe. I moved to the U.S and got into the SNES craze and the rest is history.

I spotted this one on ebay from a seller who has a bunch of CIB's . I guess it's fairly priced - 2k yen is about $26 dollars. I am not sure about the condition though. I still need to do some research about how the games came NIB. Like, did they came sealed? How to tell if they are new etc.......just like with SNES - I think SNES being harder with all the re-sealers I have had to deal with in the past. You'll see me often here asking stupid questions hehehe. I'll probably get ripped off a couple of times or buy  some fake NIB etc - part of the experience of being a collector.

Famicom games are not sealed. You can often tell from the boxes if they have been in use. However, I don't think you can tell if a box has been opened once very carefully - unless it is one of the boxes with sticky lid-style to the sides. I recently ruined the lid of a NIB game that way. But people don't care about NIB games here anyways, I sell NIB or "like new" for less than 20$ (if I sell them at all).

I might be wrong on this, but I think a CIB Sky Destroyer is worth $5 at the most.

The seller says on the description that it's new. I really can't tell eheh. I offered $14 + the shipping of course makes it $20. Seller declined. I decided not to offer more till I am sure I can tell the difference or get a copy from a trusted seller in the community.

Famicom games are not sealed. You can often tell from the boxes if they have been in use.

But people don't care about NIB games here anyways, I sell NIB or "like new" for less than 20$ (if I sell them at all).

That is sad that few people care. It means a lot to me to get games new, unopened or like new with everything they came with in mint condition. It's like going back in time and getting them at the store. That is what it means to me, that feeling of hype etc that each release had at the time. I asked for "like new" copies because I had been told that most famicom games never came sealed but I though some might - and really had no idea about price - most seem cheap considering the U.S titles I collect - very expensive. So I am pretty good paying for new as long as I don't loose a leg while at it.

Either way as you said if one has been opened just once and hardly touched it would be hard to tell if that happened looking at the box alone. Nonetheless you can tell when the box was opened if you open the box and the game's baggie is wrinkled or the inserts are bent etc. It's really a shame that we don't have pictures or a written guide about NIB famicom games. I think a sticky thread with that info would be great to help newcomers + pictures are such a help!

I'll appreciate if anyone takes a few pics of 2 or 3 games NIB. That would give me an idea of what to look for.

Anyway, you guys think that the sky destroyer on ebay was opened?

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fredJ on January 20, 2012, 09:47:42 AM
When you open a NIB , you can tell if the lid is stiff. When you take it out, you will see if the cart is nicely tucked in the original plastic bag, the cart should obviously look unused, all the paper are under the cart (or where they should be, the manual can be above etc). You can also tell from the smell of it..

"never been opened" famicom is impossible to know.  Even VGA take out the content of famicom games before they grade it. But it has to be unused. I don't think it should matter if it has been opened once or not, what matters is that it is unused.

Akumajou Densetsu (Castlevania III) is around 20-30 $ on ebay. In Japan you can get it for less than 1000 yen, because it is relatively common.

Yeah that's what I was referring too. If they don't come sealed then the guarantee you have is knowing how the game came inside and looking at it. The problem with it is that you need to have the game in your possession, "after-sale" to know and not otherwise, "before-sale" as would be with U.S titles - sealed titles.

Actual SMW port (titled Mario World 64) $20-35

I don't know where you're getting that price from, every time I've seen it sold it was at least around $60 or more. I even remember a copy I had I sold to Dante Vale, who ended up selling his for $200 to someone else :x

It's definitely worth more than the Squirrel King hack. And since it's not dumped either, it's rarer.

These Handbills worth the $30 price tag in this condition? I know there a little dinged up, but should look great framed still, plus they were only $15 each, I dont think you can beat that on any handbills...

Well the Rockman 6-in-1 normally goes for 30-50$

So id assume It may be worth a couple bucks more, I dont think anyone would pay that much more for the kunio games. I think most would only want it for the Rockman games, as you can get a Kunio Multi cart pretty easily for 5-10 bucks..

Nope, kunio multis (for exemple, the most similar to this one, Kunio 8in1) can sell up to $40 easily. I'm not even talking about japan.

This is sort of a interest check post, but I didn't want to make a new thread just about one pirate cart.

I have a pirate cart with a hack of TMNT III: The Manhattan Project called Super Turtles 3. After trying it out  quickly I noticed these things:

- The license screen has been edited to only display "1992 Super Turtles 3"

- The title screen graphics have been edited. Pretty good job too, I'd say.

- Apparently the game is by "Zonawi"  8)

- Options screen has such gems as "Gawe type" and "Norwal". The letter "o" also looks pretty funny.

- Mike is called Wize, lol. So it seems that M = W and K = Z in this hack.

- ALL dialogue from the cutscenes has been removed.

So, has this been dumped? Is this cart rare? Thanks in advance.

EDIT:  The original game doesn't even have an options screen! In the options screen of this hack you can choose between game modes A and B, difficulty levels easy and norwal, and 3, 5 or 7 lives per continue.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: lobdale on February 12, 2012, 09:50:15 PM

This is what I would ask.

1. 40$ according to the price guide but that must be without shipping from Japan, and the price guide is four years old! I'd say 100$, with shipping.
2. loose, 10$, complete 20$
3. 4$

I was curious what bootleg FDS disks go for that are not simple copies to official yellow Nintendo disks, but the ones with different colored cases and no Nintendo logo? I understand that prices will vary from a common released title vs a rare original pirate title, and I know that this question can't be answered with 100% certainty. Guess I'm just looking for a general range ($X - $XXX).
I'm new to the FDS hobby and dig the pirate disks, but I don't want to make any ill-informed purchases.

Also, is there any monetary value at all to justify the prices of the wide assortment of copied disks on ebay?
Thanks.  :-[

Pirated disks are typically cheap, but the quality varies and they aren't the easiest to find, especially if you're in the US.

As for the rewritten disks on eBay, it probably depends on what you're buying and how much it is. If you don't have a setup to allow you to write disks, it costs a bit in $ and time to get it going.

I offer a disk rewriting service if you're interested and also have some pirated disks I can write to. PM me for details.

ABSOLUTELY!  Globtops are cheap ass half assed way of doing things. Only time globtops are of value is if its a really obscure and rare title, like an FDS port of a game not released in cart form in the US/Japan/Europe or something. Always go for heavy pirates with chips. Some sellers though dont really care, and will still try to charge an arm and a leg for globtop carts, usually the sellers on ebay.....I wont name names but 2 of them are members here as well, whom I fully avoid. (anyone PM me if you want to avoid being burned as well)

But unfortunately your rockman 3, even though its chips, still isnt worth more than about $8.  :P

yeah super wonderful mario is super wonderfully common and easy to find. That multi cart is not worth much either, only a few bucks, maybe someone would pay $10-12.  If your trying to find pirates that are worth a good amount,  I have 3 words for you, "Disk System Ports". But not just any port,  specifically FDS games that were never released on cart elsewhere, those are the real money bringers (Almana no kiseki, Ai senshi nicol, monty on the run, falsion, zanac, meikyuu jin dababa, doki doki panic). Even stuff that was originally on the FDS but did get ported to cart in the US (Metroid, Kid Icarus, Dr Chaos, etc.) if you find a cart of them they still may be worth a bit.  Some stuff is super common though and is not worth more than $5-15 (Gunsmoke, Jackal/Red fortress)......

Super Famicoms are quite cheap these days. But if you buy from Japan shipping is usually rather high, because the console is heavy.

I wasnt aware about the Luigi physics either, wait what does that even mean? Luigis on the title screen and the main playable character? I dont think if it has cheat codes or not should make a big difference in the value really. I mean, you dont have to use the cheat codes. Preferably if it came down to it, I would want the release without built in cheat or like 50+ lives.

Found this when going through an old box today.  :D
(http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac351/NEO-AEG/bbfds.png)
I picked this up many many moons ago in Japan at a Hard-Off Junk store for around 500Yen. I didn't have a Disk System at the time, just liked the cool Bubble Bobble "Pencil pouch" case
The Giant manual is pretty cool too!
(http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac351/NEO-AEG/bbfdsopen.png)

You don't see many complete retail copies of Bubble Bobble in the world, I believe my count from searching online is only 5.
Including mine, 2 sold on ebay, and there were 3 displayed or sold on private websites.

Rarity doesn't equal value, but I sure don't hear much about complete Bubble Bobble disks on the web.
Is this common and I don't know it? Either way, it's best best darn $5 Pencil pouch I ever bought! ;D

Good stuff, I meant only 5 I could individually trace online as of today from search engine results. $200 is way more than I thought it was worth.

Bubble Bobble was a huge hit internationally.
Is this rare because they sold few at retail, because they had it in the disk writer, or because people like me wanted it for a pencil pouch?

That's very neat, and no matter how you look at it, it's worth far more than you paid. Great find for 500 Yen I'd say!

The inside of the manual is cool, mostly is a guide to the value of items, random artwork, and Famicom Disk Warnings. I also should mention that it's a bit difficult to get the manual out of the pencil pouch (and even harder to get back in). I wish they made the manual a little bit smaller.

Lesson learned: After wowing people with the Cha-Cha dance I will only invade the sukar monsta on this Famicom Disk when I'm way super-drunk.

It's kind of a nostalgic pop-cultural item in Japan since it was based on a detective TV show/movie franchise, so it's probably in kind of high demand like that celebrity game of the comedian who was arrested for sexual harassment and the Hitler/Guevara games.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fredJ on May 09, 2012, 09:01:16 AM
I see, thanks. Combined with it being somewhat rare uncommon.

It's the other way around for all those Disney games, pop-cultural in the west but relatively cheap in Japan, even when they are uncommon.

I never quite understood why Duck Tales is such so popular NES game. Sure "The Moon" is a nice song, but it is only like 20 seconds long. The game also takes less time to complete than watching an episode of Duck Tales. One of the most overrated NES games, imho.

Thankfully, the Japanese have better taste. Motomo Abunai Deka is a crappy game but at least it takes some effort to complete.  :D And I'd take Doraemon over Chip'n Dales any day.  :P

Just curious as it would play better than U-four-ia (PAL) in my NTSC NES, what does Hebereke go for?  Its a great game but the 200$ price tag on a game that won't run at the correct speed is kind of a deterrent.  Plus I could get a lot of other great games for $200 instead of just one that will run at an incorrect speed.

Hebereke cart only generally goes for $60-80

as for Ufouria at $200, whoever is trying to sell it for that price is a scumbag. And Ufouria just doesnt run at the incorrect speed on a US/Canada NTSC system, it also suffers from quite a few graphical glitches.

It's most likely worth a little bit more if you're not a seller from Thailand, and today's price is probably better due to inflation.
Going by the above variables, I'd say $200+, give or take the "plus".

Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 1 is fairly uncommon and desirable, cheapest Ive seen it go for is around $10-15 cart only on ebay, Im sure its much cheaper on YJA. Part 2 is rare and part 3 is VERY rare, so keep your eyes out for the sequels.  ;)

You can't put an exact price on a home made cart. It's really a matter of putting a valve on what's involved.

For example, a gyromite converter cart can be had for $25 shipped. Your common 31-1 Fami Multi can be found for $10 shipped. That being said, you can make this Cart yourself for $35.

That being said, this cart shouldn't be sold for anymore than $35. I would say $25 would be a realistic price.

I wouldn't call this home-made at all, it's not a homebrew but a vintage pirate. I am not unhappy with your monetary estimation, but I would hope that people would be interested in this because of it's NES sized shell. Not because the buyer is instead interested in harvesting the Famicom converter within.

It was a flea market find, and the NES shell+original sleeve is what makes it cool IMO.  :)

Hooray! Just won that CIB Yanchamaru pt 1 in your link. I got a little nervous when you posted it on this board because it might attract extra attention. I lost the previous one. However this one ended waaay below my max bid which is good.

This is the last major famicom title on my want list, so everything else is just a nice to have/icing.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: stealthlurker on June 02, 2012, 04:13:35 PM
All pricing estimates below that I've seen myself and reflect boxed versions only, not loose cart.

Ninja-kun: Ashura no Shou / Ninja Kid II can be worth around 4,000-5,000 yen sometimes. All the other ones aren't very pricey from what I've seen myself.

I've seen Layla go from 3,000 to 8,000. But I would say hovers more around 3,500-4,000... at least when I was watching it last year.

Chou Wakusei Senki Meta Fight is all over the place. There are times I see a bunch for 1,000 and other times 2,500. Sometimes for much higher.

Argos no Senshi is similar to Meta Fight in prices, a bit more often lower.

Post by: GohanX on July 29, 2012, 12:31:28 AM
Is it real? I ask because a lot of Darxide repros have been showing up on the scene lately. I have no idea how much it's worth since it has no box, but it should be several hundred dollars. I've heard it go for $700 before, but that was complete and mint, no box will take a big bite out of that.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fami-ave on July 29, 2012, 03:40:27 AM
There have been some protos for sale. $200 in repro box... those sellers should go to hell, charging such a high price for a worthless repro and making a purchase dangerous for real collectors.  >:(
It's hard to determine the value of a real one but with no box though. As others, I've only seem them selling in rather mint condition and even a new one... prices ranged between $500 and $1500 (1000GBP for a sealed one iirc). But no box will have a big impact because it becomes uninteresting for many 32X collectors. I'd say you'd be good to go with anything between 300 and 500 if it's the real deal.


I have a request, too. It's about the famous Hudson Soft joystick for the Famicom. I don't really know its name, it says HC-62-3 on the back and was famous for being used by Takahashi Meijin in most of his demonstrations including the famous Game King competition.
(http://media.gdgt.com/img/product/33/poi/famicom-joystick-2mus-640.jpg)

Is it rare? Valuable? Mine is missing one rubber foot, but otherwise in very clean and beautiful state.

Post by: fredJ on July 29, 2012, 08:25:50 AM
Is that the original color...?  :gamer: I offer 5$.

If it is beatiful as you say, I think 25$ is reasonable for controllers, unless there is some special function in it. You have to explain if there is.

It used to be white  ;D

No, just kidding. It's always been yellow like a Hudson bee. I didn't think it's either rare or expensive, I was just wondering how much it really goes for because it has this special cult status (as I said, Takahashi Meijin always used this particular stick in his demos) and I couldn't find any for sale on ebay or Yahoo when I searched for it yesterday.

Super Arabian isn't very expensive, because it isn't desirable. Maybe you can get 10$-15$ for your CIB copy, if you can find a buyer.

Final Fantasy III is very common but people buy it for collectors value. Maybe you can get 7$ for it.

I think it's still a lot worse than the Western versions... don't know how Nintendo could screw up so badly. They could've just ported their Western Tetris game, but instead they created this turd known as Tetris Flash... ugh. Guess a regular Tetris wasn't good enough that late in the Famicom's life :P

You could still try to find Tetris 2+ Bombliss, that's probably the best Tetris game for the Japanese Famicom. Then again it's just a port of the Super Famicom Tetris 2+ Bombliss which is, of course, far superior...

Anyways I am looking to get a price quote for these games
TMNT The Arcade Version (Original)
Contra (Original)
Contra (Pirate)
4 in 1 : Contra, Lifeforce, Rush N Attack, Green Beret

Ive been able to buy these games cheap but they seemed to have come from a house thats been on fire. The carts all had soot stains although I was able to clean and restore them to working condition. I know Ive already scored it big since I only payed a dollar for a lot of 13 carts but I just wished to know the current market prices for these games in case I decide to sell some of the other doubles.

I got mine from Gamedoctor HK a few years ago. The console is beautiful white and AV modded, the box smelled of old basement and had some tape on it, third party AC adapter, a couple of games were thrown in and the Manual is in good shape. The HK shipped cost me, I paid 127 USD for it.

My square button, which I thought was much harder to find only cost me 129.00 plus shipping.  But, it doesn't have a box and while sold to me as an '83 Famicom it has an '86 board.

Can anyone explain to me why a CIB Rockman 1 is so expensive?  They seem to go for like $200, and I just don't understand that.  Is it because of popularity, scarcity, some combination of both?  There seem to be plenty of solo carts out there, and they're not overly expensive.  Did Rockman not have a very high print-run?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: L___E___T on October 17, 2012, 11:14:09 AM
It's a bit of both, plus it's an early game so it can be hard to find the manual.  When I first started famicom collecting, this was a $100 CIB game.
Even loose carts go for over $50 these days.  To Rockman fans, this is where it all started so it's the penultimate.

So here's a good question.
What is Recca worth CIB at this moment in time?
Ignore the crazy listings that sit there and sit there.  What's the going rate?


Title: Re: Price Check

I just had my offer accepted for CIB THE QUEST OF KAI (ebay) I offered him $10 less than they had it listed for (was $40). So did I get raped  :-* or just felt up a little  :-\

I did really want the game and have been wanting a Namcot CIB

Great game! I feel $30 is a fair price for a CIB copy but only if it were pristine with all stickers, etc.

Given recent auction sales and future speculation I think Recca CIB would be closer to 5 bills. I wish I could find a box and manual for my cart at a decent price. :)

how much loose Contra is worth?

true real DIP chips, not glob top epoxy shit

would 100$ be enough?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: L___E___T on November 16, 2012, 04:54:21 PM
You can definitely get loose Contra for less than that!

famicom Contra loose in ok condition = $25
(http://stopxwhispering.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/contra_.jpg)

famicom Super Contra loose in ok condition  = $20
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v704/usagi704/SC-tn.jpg)

Of course both sell in instances for more and less than this, but this is my benchmark based on a lot of completed listings on eBay.
You could also likely snag them for less on forums like here, if you ask the right seller in the right way.

Do official contra carts sometimes come with glob top chips?  I didn't realise that.  So I guess you'd have to just buy a bunch of loose carts, open them up until you find your DIP chip cart and sell the rest?  You could do that with $100, surely if you bought 5 carts one might have a DIP chip in at least.


Title: Re: Price Check

The official cartridge of Solomon's Key for the Famicom seems to go for cheap, around 10 dollars on eBay. So I'd assume that pirated copy would cost less than that, maybe 2-5 dollars or so.

The sequel appears to be a bit more rare, but since that's a pirated copy I still wouldn't guess it's worth that much.

It's not worth a lot - to be honest for popular games like this you can search 'battle city famicom' on eBay then filter to completed listings.  You''ll get your answer quickly and won't have to make new threads each time either.

Hard to say - you need to find the right collector but stick it on gamesniped.com and it'll get good attention.  I've seen similar desirability samples go for way less than NES ones, by you should be able to get $100 for it if it gets noticed.

Except for the fact that its an official Konami sample label and most people are not smart enough to figure out how to make it look exactly like what they officially used. Paper stock is exact. Even the Stamping is exact. So they would had to have a sheet of the same paper Konami used to produce these labels, carve out a stamp as well with various serial numbers and get them in the right position/shape and age the stamped ink which is impossible to do.

Its 100% authentic Konami sample cart.


 its very easy to tell a real from a dupe.

(http://gyazo.com/90085601c7a97f3257797952931f3e4b.png?1363495852)

A little bit of sticker residue on the cartridge for M.C. Mario, besides that they're fine. 


Title: Re: Price Check

$30 and $20


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: VinylDracula on March 17, 2013, 11:48:41 PM
$30 and $20

Actually Dian Shi Ma Li is quite rare for the original version, which that appears to be, also the label is right side up (most are upside down for some reason) so Id say its worth about $40-60, and MC Mario is a reprint version worth about $10-15 if its not a glob top.

Thanks everyone (anyone).

I looked into the game on eBay and found the following prices

Cart only ($6.95 BIN w Free ship) http://www.ebay.com/itm/251253704774
CIB ($13.50 shipped) http://www.ebay.com/itm/170988133785

So I would say roughly $7.00 for cart only and roughly $14.00 for CIB


Title: Re: Price Check

I'm looking for a price check on loose Gun Nac.  Good condition.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nerdynebraskan on June 01, 2013, 01:00:29 PM
Gun-Nac is undoubtedly being driven up by the high price of the US version. Scaryice's Famicom Price Guide put the 2012 price average for it at $21 shipped, down from $27 shipped in 2011. A quick eBay completed listings search expanded to worldwide shows that auctions are starting to end around $40 shipped in recent weeks. I guess that's still about half as much as the US version, but still... At least it's a really solid game.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: L___E___T on June 01, 2013, 05:57:09 PM

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nerdynebraskan on June 01, 2013, 06:17:44 PM
Gun-Nac flew under the radar for a really long time here. I'm glad I snapped one up while it was still a secret; I got an NES copy for $15 in trade credit with a fellow collector about two years ago. (And that was fair market value at the time.) It's one of the biggest price jumps among the NES games that have skyrocketed in the last two years. Unfortunately for you, NES collectors have figured out the FC version is a cheap shortcut to a copy of this awesome game. Really, it is probably the best overhead shooter that got released in the US by far. (And it will still stack up competitively against the FC exclusives like Recca and Crisis Force.) It's that good.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: L___E___T on June 01, 2013, 06:36:46 PM
Yeah I have played it on Everdrive, it's great - definitely up there with the best, though I think I prefer Crisis Force overall.

boxed or loose?

A non-yellow one in a pristine box with all the bits has got to be circa 500 bucks I'd say.  Loose, I wouldn't pay more than 200 bucks.


Title: Re: Price Check

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: L___E___T on August 22, 2013, 07:14:56 PM
That's just my personal value attribution mind, please don't take it as community-verified or anything :)

I bought a boxed Square button Famicom in very good shape for £125 about 4 years ago, however, it has had a motherboard switch which probably halves the value.
Loose consoles aren't super difficult to find as such, but nice examples are.  Especially when you look at the controllers, the main attraction.

To find a really nice condition boxed and complete console would be an awesome find and I imagine it would go for at least 500 bucks, given you'd likely not see another.

A loose one even in nice condition I think would go for less than half that, but at the end of the day do base your own value appraisal on it and decide what you'd personally buy or let it go for.  

That's always the most trustworthy price guide in my book.

Gosh, I don't know. I suspect you may be able to sell it for that, especially if that's the cheapest BIN on the 'Bay the next time an impatient person logs on looking for one. But it seems to me that game starts pretty reliably around $10 shipped.

Rockman 2
Rockman 6


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nerdynebraskan on August 29, 2013, 12:56:24 AM
Rockman $40ish shipped on several BINs; I did search for "Rockman 1; may go for cheaper without the 1, but I'm too lazy to weed through all the false hits that a simple "Rockman" search would bring up)
Rockman 2 $15-25 shipped (multiple sold)
Rockman 6 $20-27 shipped (3 sold)

2 & 6 were much cheaper at the moment than the averages arrived at in ScaryIce's 2012 price guide:
http://vgstats.blogspot.com/2011/08/famicom-price-guide.html

The first Rockman's BINs I saw were about the same price, but like I said, you can probably find them going for less if you look a little harder.

The eBay BINs are insane and I haven't stumbled across one for sale on any of the Japanese game sites I buy from, so I'm not sure what more natural prices are.

I bought mine from FCGamer here for about 40 dollars I think.  Same condition, if a little worse.  If you're selling it though, price at whatever you want and see who takes the punt, thins like this are worth whatever people want to pay, just find the right people.

ok np had a feeling it was around $50 - $60 but for now i might keep it for a trade in the future as i got it more out of impulse rather then need :) too bad its not cib i have a feeling i remember seeing them for around 1k.

That would have been a nice CIB.  A brand new one sold on Yahoo for a lot of money.  You could probably get 60 for it, I think FCGamer gave me a good deal.

I once sold one for a little less than their starting bid. True, they may be cheap in Japan if you find it there, but it isn't that easy to come by. And calculate with expensive shipping from abroad (Japan, US).
If I remember correctly the hyper shot can also be used as a normal lightgun (for duck hunt, hogan's alley and wild gunman). The normal light gun is also a hard accessory to find so you'll save on that.
The Hyper Shot has a built in microphone for sound effects. It is pretty cool actually.

I think you would use your normal 1-player controller, in case you need a controller. The lightgun is just a lightgun.

So I recently found out a game I had a bought is kinda rare. It's Janken Disk Shiro, which is an RPG that features Disk Kun as the protagonist. This was also the last game to come out for the FDS in 1992.

I have it with the labels on both sides and the game works. There is no cover art with it, and there might not be any released. This game was only released with Famimaga Magazine and the Disk Writer kiosks.

I'm thinking of selling it for $150+. Is this too much? Too little?


Title: Re: Price Check

I paid $5 for my loose copy a couple of years ago.  It's probably worth more than $5, but $150 has got to be too much for it.

around 25$ complete in box, I'd say...
15$ if it only has the front cover
maybe 7$ if only disk with labels...
The game is relatively easy to sell because it it playable FDS-exclusive in a well known series.

You need to find a buyer and it will only be someone who collects all FDS games because no one will pay 100$ for its playing value. Not many people collect a full FDS set. I think you should be happy if you get 50$.

Yes it has the original labels. That's what I was thinking, since it is a japanese RPG, which are a dime a dozen on the famicom...  :P

@L_E_T  How did ya know I'd seen it on dealfish? Google?

@nerdynebraskan Dealfish is a Thai website that sells all different types of stuff.

L_E_T is saying to be careful because in Thailand most people don't have paypal so when you pay for something it's usually a direct cash transfer to their bank and then they'll send the item.

So you have to trust the seller.

Thanks anyway ... . .  Think I'll pick up Don Doko Don 2.

I already have a couple of those actually from a fair few years back- they don't look as good as the pictures suggest though to be honest.  Not bad, just not official parts.  

They do a Famicom Edition one as pictured and they also did a Ltd. edition Famicom one like the Club Nintendo style.  I have both those GBAs now so I will keep the after market shells wrapped up and unused for future keeping, you can't find them any more.

I found this page a while back also and asked about stock but got no reply - so a word of warning to anyone here - don't just place an order, it's a dud page and the stock has long since run out.  I don't think it's been updated since 2004 either.  I've asked again just in case, would be a nice surprise to get a reply but they ran out everywhere a long time ago so I'll be really surprised if they genuinely still have some left.

If by miracle they do, I'll grab a few and can send it to you if you like, would only cost a few bucks, especially if I include it in another package.

3-4 years ago , they were 150$ CIB BIN on ebay. You should buy games when they are cheap, not when they are expensive. Maybe buy hebereke now that it is still at 150$, or whine about it in four years. Famicom Hebereke and Gimmick are equally rare, as is Gremlins 2 by the way but you can get the NES version of that...
By rarity I mean released copies, not how many are for sale on ebay...


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: nerdynebraskan on January 18, 2014, 01:48:45 AM
Unfortunately, I wasn't yet into Famicom stuff 3-4 years ago. I did however get my NES collection mostly finished in that time range. I managed to get a lot of rares for $20 apiece only a year before the latest price spike send them pushing toward $100 per. The Famicom side of things hasn't inflated that badly... at least, not yet.

And I'm not really seeking Hebereke, since I have the PAL NES version of U-Four-Ia.

Gimmick and Recca are the only games left on my FC watch list that I figure to spend more than $50 apiece on, and I have a pirate of the former and a repro of the latter to tie me over until I do break down and buy them.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fredJ on January 31, 2014, 09:00:32 AM
Bubble Bobble 2:
The strange shaped cart? I sold one for around 100$.
You could get it cheaper a couple of years ago, but this is a very rare game and 100$ is around the price in Japan (with the disclaimer that I may be thinking in "old yen" value and not the "new yen" lower value)
Also the NES version is rare which drives up prices.

Metroid:
I would say at least 50$ if there is such a think as a cardboard insert. Is there? I don't think I've ever seen it, it must be rare. Or do you mean manual?
CIB box + manual + game 40$ is appropriate. Maybe less -- the value of the yen has gone down and so have ebay prices.

I think you'd be lucky to find a complete set for that because Rockman 1, 2 and 6 go for a lot loose these days.  
I think you're looking at closer to 50 just for Rockman 1 to be honest, but maybe you can find a deal from sellers here.

Gamegears are a strange thing if it is from release without redone capacitors probably $20 - $30.

Can I ask what makes you say these are the rarest of the rare multicarts?  Even in NES terms this isn't the case.  I'm not saying they're not special, but these are basic low count NES multicarts, loose not boxed and not with a visible Supervision logo (unless it's on the back), so they are no rarer than any other NES multicart I'm afraid.  This isn't eBay, where you can slap the word rare on to anything and hope for extra views.  They might be hard to obtain in Canada, but in internet terms they are no rarer than another NES multicart I'm afraid.  I'm not the expert on NES multicarts granted, but I would hazard that the Caltron 6-in-1 is rarer, as is the Action 52.

Secondly only supervision would make such multicarts you can check the menu of it on youtube link
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4SxVAkx_do

secondly action 52 and that 6 in 1 you are talking about is
just a joke the games on them are just plain garbage and posted on ebay so easy to find.

another reminder here that the 8 in 1 cartridge as u can see mine is rare because
the rom file for this cart is not available anywhere u can google it and check the game list on the photo
You wont find this 8 in 1 cart anywhere neither the Rom File period its rare.
ironicaly action 52 and caltron rom files are available.

that should just tell you how rare this 8 in 1 is.

Correct me if I am wrong.

the unfortunate thing you learn from buying and selling games is that rare doesn't always equal valuable  :-\

Post by: MaxXimus on February 26, 2014, 03:44:30 AM
Just because the rom wasn't dumped, it doesn't mean that the game is the rarest of the rare. Any prototype cartridge would be lightyears rarer than those, and there are roms of many prototypes floating around. I get that you want to make some cash or that to you they are more valuable than others are willing to spend, but in that case, why not just keep the cartridges? They are neat and it would be cool to have some in my collection, but I know if I am just patient eventually I'll find a steal of a deal and not have to pay an outrageous amount.

Someone might give you more for them on NintendoAge forums, as they tend to overpay on most stuff, but you came here asking for a price check and that's what we gave you - if it doesn't align with your own expectations don't get mad, just take it on board as what people here would be willing to pay.  No-one is trying to get these from you cheap.

Others are right in that undumped doesn't equal value, plus there will be valuable rare carts up on eBay at silly prices -  eBay listings do not also equal rarity.  Nice multicarts but they're not going to help you pay off the mortgage if that's what you're hoping.

Nes multis seem harder to come by than famicom ones, but I remember seing at least 2 on ebay the other day. I prob wouldn't pay more than $10-$20 per cart.

NES multicarts really aren't that rare, in the grand scheme of things, and I could crank them out of my closet all day if I so desired.  But I am an honest collector/seller, and don't do that.

At one point I had some NES multicarts and NES bootlegs of games such as the unlicensed original Super Lion King, Aladdin 2, etc.  In most (if not all) of the cases, when the carts were opened, it all just turned out to be a Famicom pcb attached to a converter.  Now maybe these aren't, but that is something I would definitely like to confirm one way or the other, as I think that this point would definitely sway the scarcity of the item...

Another strike against these carts is that they don't have boxes, and they don't have many games on them.  Just some basic first gen NES titles on a multicart will not net you much money, I'm afraid.

As MaxXimus stated, I would only pay $10 - $20 each for these, though someone on Nintendo Age or eBay might be willing to pay a  bit more.  Definitely not overly rare, definitely not overly valuable, even if the rom is dumped or not.  I have a whole stack of multicarts I am going to sell (FC version though), maybe I have some undumped ones too and will hit the jackpot  :upsetroll:

A sequel to the Mico Machines franchise.  It eventually became Micro Maniacs on PS1, so it's like a SMD prototype of that game.  
It was canned quite early on, but quite fun to see - has a playable level and some other stuff, so it's not an unreleased game as such, more a collector piece.
SEGA 16 forums wanted me to dump it, but I haven't got the means nor the motivation to do it really, not sure how I feel about it just yet.

Had a Game Gear and SMD dev kit as well, original, genuine from back in the day flashcarts that were used with multiple memory banks on them and stuff, really nice to look at and a piece of history, but those are no longer with me.
The proto won't be for much longer either I expect.

I  think someone should identify some factors which effect the price, for example :

How rare is it?
How much is the game popular?
Does it have Glop Top IC or real IC?
Does it have box and manual?
How many games are in it?
Is it working or dead!
Is it original or reproduction?
How is the quantity of the same board class?
and so on ...

Each factor should have a value or percent value
Then it would be easy to find out the cartridge price

I also wonder why they put that guide in Chrono Trigger. (at least some copies, I have a bunch, at first I removed it but now I leave it in)
Because it is like a manual for Satellaview with no connection to Chrono Trigger.
I have seen it in some other game too, not sure which. Chrono Trigger is so plentiful unlike most.

Not sure about the flyer though, it looks familiar, but I don't usually open them to check.

My guess for value: 2$.

I imagine they put it in because of Miracle Dreamers especially, and the Chrono Trigger Specials.  If there was love with Nintendo they would have supported it and got that in there early to try and build some hype and awareness.

The cartridge plastic is different but it has the same label as the one people are talking about (The label the same the official cartridge but without Mario or the Title/Logo. All you see is the backround.). The plastic is bright blue and has the logo TAITD imprinted on the back. The cartridge is poorly put together and it's falling apart but it still plays. Some people say the title screen is hacked but I have a REAL copy and it looks exactly the same. Any idea on how much this is worth?  ~Adam

I was more just wondering what I would have to pay from a user on this forum for example.  Or if I found it in Akihabara at a shop.

Okay because the ones I checked on ebay I wouldn't them "near mint"..
Near mint isn't creases or tear, etc....  Like these ones have.

 Well thanks for your info.  I feel like around $100 shipping is the price I would be willing to pay for the condition I am after.  The ones on eBay are not actually selling for the price they are listed for so I don't consider it market price.

Has the price for a loose Magical Doropie ever been at $200?!?  I see several on ebay for around $70 or whatever, with CIB copies being $200 or more, give or take. 

The reason I ask is because a seller on another website is selling a loose Doropie at $200, and when I said that his prices seemed crazy, he told me that at the time that is what it cost in Japan for the game, so that is why it is priced at that cost.  I thought Doropie's price was lower a few years back, so to me it seems as though he made a bad purchase (i.e. paid too much, got screwed himself) and then just trying to recoup his money on the game, but that is why I am curious and asking here.  Was Doropie indeed a $200 game at one point, loose?!?

Well I hate that sort of logic as well, and I also hate when people price gouge for the popular games.  It is one thing if it is the going rate, but that price just seemed stupid high imo.  Here is the message the guy had posted to me (he is also a member on here, though he primarily tries selling his games on Nintendo Age, for some unknown reason)

"At the time.. I could not get a copy in Japan for less than 18000 yen.   The most important part and piece of information  in my thread is "prices are negotiable" and you can ask questions.. If i could find cheaper, i will supply it cheaper.  "

I guess there are things that annoy me about sellers like the one I had mentioned earlier with the Doropie, and they are linked together. 

#1 - I sometimes feel that guys like that are in it just for the money, whether it is true or not.  And it is quite apparent to me, as this sort of seller rarely posts messages on places like Famicom World, prices items (much) higher than the norm, and then tries to justify his / her actions to boot.  Why not try to sell your items on a Famicom website as well, where they might have a better chance of selling (i.e. there is more demand)?  Well, the most obvious reason is because we are too familiar with the prices of Famicom games, and are less likely to purchase a game like that for $200, when we can get it for $60, whereas a rookie might go into battle with guns blazing, and purchase first, ask questions later.

Agreed, I don't like those guys either.  I tell people the best way to get deals on their games and build a collection is through friendships and making fair offers.

I don't mind lower offers - it's when they are stupidly low I get a bit irritated.  

You can't hate someone for trying to get a bargain, I for one pretty much always try and get a bargain and if I can't I'll often leave it.  I don't think that's a sin I just can't ignore good deals.  

I can happily wait out til one turns up for auction somewhere otherwise and get it at market rate.  It's the prospect of  a good deal that makes me jump off my seat and act.

I think you need to find a hard core collector for those. Someone who needs to complete their collection.
Outside of Japan I don't know if there are many like that. Best option might be to sell it to someone in Japan.

What are these worth?

(http://i.imgur.com/UBKd3cQ.jpg)

Super Fighter III seems to be the very first version, as the up+start cheat is not in it and you can't pick an alternative colour for a character unless both players pick the same one.

Garou Densetsu 2 doesn't have Lawrence Blood, so it too is the first version of the game?

Getsu Fuumaden says (C) MIKOKO 1989 on the title screen. I didn't spot any other differences.

The Slotech adapter adds a red power LED and a headphonejack to a Famicom, which is pretty nice. Does anyone have any other information about this thing?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fcgamer on December 09, 2014, 09:04:46 AM
The two fighting games aren't worth that much, unfortunately.  The Cony Soft game typically sells somewhere in the $15 - $20 range, unboxed.

I don't know for sure, but I don't think the Super Fighter game is the original either.  IMO, the original version is the one that had come boxed.  Once again, I think the value for this one is gonna lie somewhere from $15 - $20.

This thing has nothing to do with Sega. It's a regular 8-bit famiclone in Sega's shell. To be shure you can count the metal connectors in cartridge. Sega has 64 pins, but Famicom/Famiclone has 60.

Now... for the "price check" of my own... what should I pay for a loose copy of mildly dented cartridge of "Akumajo Densetsu"? Is 50$ a reasonable price or a ripoff?

Are you sure the Master System wasn't released in North America?

In Sweden we used to call the NES a "Nintendo" and the SMS a "Sega" since they were about the only consoles released from those companies. Sometimes we even just said video game. But as soon as the Mega Drive and Super NES was released we used names like Nintendo 8-bit and Sega 8-bit, while the newer consoles were called "Super Nintendo" and "Sega Mega Drive".

So calling the Genesis for a Sega makes zero sense to me.

BTW the NES is still affectionately called the Nintendo 8-bit to this day in Sweden.

I think Jackson's point is that very few people in the States had a SMS.  My brother's best friend when growing up had one, but even with him, it was barely used and the kid complained how it sucked so bad.  Outside of his family, I don't know anyone that had a SMS here, though everyone had Atari 2600 or a clone, and everyone also had NES.  Only when the MD came out did Sega start taking off.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: P on January 01, 2015, 06:34:52 PM
I see, SMS was rare here too, I only had one friend who had it. Not having a NES was even more rare though. But we still called the SMD a "Sega Mega Drive" (leaving out "Sega" was unacceptable and it doesn't rhyme).

My best friend in high school had an SMS and I had an NES, we used to just call them `the Sega` and the Nintendo.  I`m Canadian, not sure if the SMS was more popular there than the US but I had the definite impression that, while nowhere near as popular as the NES, the SMS was pretty well known.

I hope you got your Gimmick pirate for a good price. I have the same one (and it works fine on my AV Famicom), but I paid way too much for it. I really want a legit one someday, but that price is spiraling out of control.

Sorry I haven't been on this thread in the last month. Last time I was here, I did create some confusion for a few of our non-U.S. members when I said "no one here [in the States] had a Master System." That was a minor exaggeration. It was sold here, but it sold very poorly. A statistic I saw once said that by 1990, Nintendo's NES owned 89% of the home videogame market in the States. And the SMS was still battling Atari's aging consoles for that other 11%, of course. I literally knew only one person with an SMS until well into my adulthood, and he was a guy who also had an Atari Jaguar, Sega Saturn, and all kinds of unsuccessful systems.

It's cheap - I got mine for around 10 bucks I think?  How's your Japanese though?  A translation does exist I should note, Gideon Zhi translated it years ago.

My nihongo isn't too bad, but not near enough to play RPGs like that. I was actually curious about getting it turned into an English language cart, since I know of a reputable guy who can do that.

I did the same, I'd say go for it - there seem to be enough copies out there that aren't being enjoyed, to justify it.  Heck, even the artwork justifies it if you ask me.

Agreed, it's drawn by Yuuji Takada, the Sazan Eyes author. One of my favo manga.

I got the game CIB in mint condition for around $10 I think.

Edit: Well as mint as a used Famicom cart usually gets. The pins were dirty and needed cleaning before they game was playable (this cart has screws and is easy to open).

I notice Rockman 1 is pretty pricey, did it not sell as well as its sequels?

On top of that, all the other Rockman games are kinda expensive, usually $20 - $30 a piece, very similar to their NES counterparts. Are Rockman/MegaMan fans all made of money?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fcgamer on March 03, 2015, 05:52:25 AM
Rockman 2 and 3, I got quite cheap, same with 5.  Maybe $10 each, loose.  This was maybe a year ago.  Boxed is more expensive though.  1 and 6 are the rare ones.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: XiTaU on March 03, 2015, 08:10:37 AM
Its just how the retro game boom works a few years back it was 1/2 the price it is now.
As stated 1 and 6 are the rarer carts and hence cost the most.
You can still find 3 4 5 for like $10 each if u want some megaman fun.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: L___E___T on March 03, 2015, 10:05:06 AM
I see a lot of Rockman 1 carts and they tend to all go for the $50 mark.  I would just look for a nice one - it'll only go up in value as the 'original' beginning of the franchise.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: scaryice on March 03, 2015, 02:02:23 PM
Most of the time they go high, but if you bid on enough of them on Ebay you should be able to get one in the $30s eventually.

yea I got one in for $33 off of ebay in October of 2013. I had to go back and look at my purchase history
remember if you are going for all famicom rockman games theres a odd ball one that's kinda hard to find.

Wily and Light's RockBoard: That's Paradise (ワイリー & ライト の ロックボード: ザッツ☆パラダイス)

it can some times fetch a high price, I took a risk and bought one as untested JUNK on ebay and it turned out to be fine.
there one on e-bay for ~$25 from a seller in florida with free shipping, that's a good deal for that game. Mine was $15 not including shipping but I was taking a risk of it not working though

Super Famicom games were never released as factory sealed when new, so they should go for the same price as complete copies of those games. Maybe about 10-15 Canadian dollars each.

That isn't the value - it's what people are asking.  It's an old problem, but one that will stick around.  Some people think chucking things in a box with a sticker ups the amount that fresh collectors will pay for it.  I don't buy into that theory, but they do sometimes sell - in short there's always people with more money than sense.  If you won the lottery, would you buy it?

I would agree, you'll spend more on the grading process and shipping.  Chrono Trigger and FFVI are already very popular and therefore common and cheap to pick up, even new.

There's always at least one or 2 sample copies of chrono trigger on ebay.

I can't think of what they are exactly called right now, but what is the going rate on those official SFC flash carts? I guess it probably depends what was written to it, but roughly what should I look to pay for one? Does $20 to $30 sound about right? Just a loose copy.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: L___E___T on March 30, 2015, 05:24:17 PM
 
 
 
I would say $20 is right for a loose one - they were widespread and offered to the public.  

A Minty Metal Slader Glory Director's Cut is probably the top end, I think around $150-$200 depending on condition, it varies.

So you can use that as a point of comparison.

It is cheaper to buy a famicom and a disk drive then to buy a sharp twin.
If u want a working Twin in box price can vary quite a bit and postage will be a huge amount of the price ~$50.
For a boxed unit you are looking at the $200 - $250 range i would think.
You can find them cheaper if ur willing to try to fix the disk drive yourself.

Hi XiTau,
Thanks for your good info. You're saying "try to fix the disc drive yourself"  .... What's usually wrong/broken on them disc drives then? What do I need to fix if so?

Is there any sort of "combo" I can use  between a disc drive ( the one for the Famicon) and a AV Famicon then?

Thanks

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: XiTaU on April 04, 2015, 05:53:05 AM
The disk drives usually stop working because the belt breaks u can fix it urself if u have the know how it is quite simple.
You can use an AV famicom and a disk drive instead of a sharp twin it is the more preferred method but a sharp twin works well too.

Sooo the thing that brought me into this forum was the research about a game I own.
I was looking for any information about it for a few days and yet haven't found any clue about it's rarity.

So here it is Metal Fighter by Sachen for Famicom/Famiclone console.

Any thoughts about it, you could share with me ?

Title: Re: Price Check

If it were loose, I would say $20 - $30. 

For me personally, that box / manual doesn't add any value, as they are reprints made by Sachen and not the originals they had done in the early 90s.  Others might feel differently though.

If you can get a CIB Metal Storm for less than $200... take it. Without any hesitation. I paid just a bit over $200 for mine, and have no regrets.

Cart only it's definitely a $100+ game, sells regularly for that much on Japanese sites.

Thanks for your post.  I don't do CIB except for that Gimmick! CIB copy I picked up a while back.  I feel like its $100-$125 game loose.  I just don't have enough urge to get the $140 shipped in US loose cart of it that one sell has on ebay.  Consider it is a second tier game that I want it doesn't have the highest priority (certainly doesn't have the same feel of awesome when I picked up Gimmick!).   

Reminds me I need to speak up other cheaper loose carts when I get around to it (Sword Master, etc.).

Magic Block and Caltron 6 in 1 are the two gems out of the bunch.  Although the NES version is more expensive, the Famicom Caltron is much, much harder to find.

For values, I personally would value them at $80 - $100 each, but you will be hard pressed to find someone willing to pay that much.  The games are rare, but the demand just isn't there...yet.

I paid my Soulbrain JPY10000... 2 years ago (it was a bit expensive but not anymore now)...

It appears that this game is more and more demanded (similarly to Kage or Captain Saver) seeing that some videogameshops having a ebay account added more copies (probably due to collector videogames wanted lists which mention more often this game.
I cannot blame them as this is one of my favorite game (especially the fact that you can combine three symbols combination to get various weapons).

Prices on Ebay appear (at first look) to be insane... but if I haven't had it, I guess I could put something around US$150 for a CIB version...

What's the going price on Lickle these days? I've seen it all over the place, some under 100$ which were probably repros, and others that are usually closer to 300$, or well over, but that was just on eBay usually. I wanted to buy a copy at first, but have they really gone up where they are going for that much now?


Just curious what the fair average price on that game seems to be now.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: L___E___T on August 19, 2015, 08:41:41 AM
The NES Samson rarity has really driven Lickle prices to madness.  CIB is very hefty now, but you should be able to get a loose cart under $100, I paid around $80 a year ago I think for a minty.

  Yeah I thought $200 was a bit much myself, and $250 to me was just crazy insane. The seller I'd emailed sells games from Japan, so I'm pretty sure it was the FC version they gave me a price for. Either way for just the cart that's crazy.  :o

  Speaking of crazy prices on Lickle, I saw these tonight on eBay and about fell out of my chair at the first one:

First one is just the cart, and I think that is way overboard, not sure about what the boxed versions go for now though. I know those cannot be normal prices, I checked a few other auctions and saw them i the 140-200$ range for the cart.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-Family-Computer-FC-NES-Japan-Video-Game-ROM-Seirei-Densetsu-Lickle-Rare-/131583589575?hash=item1ea2fe3cc7 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-Family-Computer-FC-NES-Japan-Video-Game-ROM-Seirei-Densetsu-Lickle-Rare-/131583589575?hash=item1ea2fe3cc7)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUPER-RARE-FAMICOM-NINTENDO-SEIREI-DENSETSU-LICKLE-w-box-manual-TAITO-JAPAN-/291260238809?hash=item43d0768bd9 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUPER-RARE-FAMICOM-NINTENDO-SEIREI-DENSETSU-LICKLE-w-box-manual-TAITO-JAPAN-/291260238809?hash=item43d0768bd9)

After seeing all the crazy prices, it may just be cheaper and economical now to try and find a decent repro of it to buy, just to have a cart to play.

Just thought I'd share those prices that I've seen tonight though.

Sonic and Toy Story you'll probably get a bit more for - but the others are all small fry a few bucks each.

Rockman 1 to 6 is more, if it's chips inside and not flimy mini glob-top board.  I've seen them go for $50 up.

That's a tricky one.  I think around $30 for less popular titles, ranging through to $60 up for full SMW.  But that's just my gut feel.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fcgamer on September 25, 2015, 03:42:35 AM
Conversions will always be chipped, unless it is a modern-made crap.  Keep in mind the conversions were made and came out in the late 1980s by Kaiser and Whirlwind manu.  Likewise, most WW Manu and Kaiser carts are also always chipped, though some WW Manu carts (reprints) got globs, but not the FDS ports. 

For good FDS port games, price range starts at around $50 for a more common / less popular title, ranging upwards to $100 (sometimes more).  Something crappy like the Japanese Double Dribble obviously would go for less, imo around $20 - $25 is fair.  Likewise, SMB2j is a much more common game, and also sells for less (maybe the same price as Exciting Basketball).

Magic Dragon, I had found a small cache of those a long time back, but that ship has sailed a long time ago.  From what others in other circles have said about trying to find this game, I honestly think it is a $50 title.  If it is chips, it is a repro, and not worth anything. 

Likewise, Super Mario World full version.  If it is a single cart, it is just a repro, and is not worth anything other than what some uneducated fool gets tricked into paying.  If it is chips, same thing applies...repro garbage, and not worth any more than the cost of parts.  For a legit version (i.e. on the multicart, with globs) the price point is between $300 - $500 I would say...



You never know  ::) So...

For older games the price is different - but I gathered that 80sFreak was suggesting making a batch, and so I took a stab at what I think those would fetch on today's market (in the spirit of the price check thread).
 
 
I get that not everyone likes repros, or wants to see them but they're not just worth the costs of parts in the general market.  Sure they wouldn't be worth as much as Kaiser or WM but I think they're worth around $30-$60 if you were to offer them to the wider collecting community.  Playing on an Everdrive's all well and good but many like to collect individual carts, original or otherwise.
 


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fcgamer on September 25, 2015, 01:06:35 PM
I personally feel that making repros of carts like this is against the spirit of the site.  Why would it be okay to make a repro batch of the FDS ports onto cart, but not okay to make an Archimedes Gradius, a Safety Rally, a Gimmick, etc?  Just because the original software conversions were done illegally is a moot point, imo; two wrongs don't make a right, and at least with the originals, they are original, despite being boots at the same time. 

Just as an example of what can happen with this sort of project, let's look at Super Maruo.  The game is quite rare, and I **would have** honestly ponied up and paid a large amount for this game, for my collection.  People that chat with me and have seen the pictures of my collection know that I am quite serious with my collecting, basically OCD on the matter, so when I say the aforementioned statement, I think some here would not dispute my claim as to **have been** willing to pay a nice sum for that game.  These days though, I will **never** pay any large amount for that game, simply because of the fact that it has been reproed so many times.  With the technology of this day and age, it is easy to create a real-looking repro of games like that, and it isn't worth it for me to get burned when throwing such money on the table. 

In the end, who really wins (or loses?)  The sellers lose, since suddenly key players / collectors are jumping out of the market, due to authenticity issues (and maybe some are just willing to settle for a nice-looking fake for half the price, who knows).  Some collectors also lose, those that want to pick up said games, but now have to be concerned about fakes.  Or those collectors that already picked up those games at market prices, who then see the market tank as their valuable games suddenly are turned into pennies. 

The only ones that win are general gamers (but why wouldn't they be content with everdrive or emulation...besides, why not just run it on a disk drive or in the case of something like Super Maruo, the game isn't worth more than just one play).  So that leads me to conclude that the only winners are collectors that aren't willing to pay the going rates / aren't willing to do the footwork to track down an authentic time piece. 

If an original Dababa FDS on cart conversion sells for around $50 - $60 and the people making the repros are selling them for $30 - $60, gamers are still paying the same price for the game, so aside from general availability (and seeing how long the FDS conversion carts I have sitting in my sale thread at best offer sit, there isn't a HUGE demand), what is the benefit?  The only benefit I can see is from the other people jumping into the market and making a quick buck, just like what happened in the NES scene. 

But with that selfishness and greed, it has turned that scene into a zoo, sadly.  Let's not turn the Famicom market the same way.

I understand your feelings on it, but 80sFreak asked for a general price check on what those items might go for - and so that is (judging from what NES repros tend to cost anyway) what they would go for.

I know you personally hate repros but you do have to appreciate that is indeed a subjective view and the price check thread i snot the place to debate the ethics of repros, that thread is here: http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=11714.0 (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=11714.0)

The Famicom World stance is basically on the fence and we try not to be necessarily for or against them.  We're here for the collective community, of which some like them, some don't.

Looking at many repro review videos on YouTube however, it's clear there are many 8-bit collectors out there that want an individual cart, legitimate or not to play with.  That's not me endorsing them, just stating.

Same with the price range, that's not me endorsing these - just stating what I would expect them to go for if they were offered generally.

I don't think discussion on here is going to change the market either way - it is a bigger scene than this site / forum alone and it's ineffective for us to persuade ourselves to be Luddites if it's already happened.  

Look on Yahoo Japan Auctions, Tao Bao and of course eBay and you'll see it's widespread.  Again not me endorsing, just stating the observation.

We'll never allow dodgy sales threads to survive or pop up here, so as far as the site is concerned, I think we are in safe hands.  But back on topic, the value of such carts would be $30-$60 generally.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fcgamer on September 25, 2015, 02:05:11 PM
 ::)   :upsetroll:

Wait?  So if the value of a real one is $60, and the value of a "repro" version is also $60?  How does that make any sense? 

By looking and comparing across Famicom and NES formats, it is like comparing apples to mangoes, to be frank about it.  On one format (NES), there was never a widespread piracy back in the day.  Sure, places like Indonesia received bootleg NES carts, and a small handful made its way into Canada and the like, but that's it.  Sure, somewhere, there might be a FDS conversion of Falsion or whatever on a NES cart, a period piece, but the amount out there (and those that have turned up) is few to none, due to the such limited scope of distribution of pirated NES 72 pin carts back in the day.

On the other hand, in basically every region of the world that didn't receive NES (excluding Japan), bootleg Famicom carts were the norm.  They turned up in Eastern Europe, in South America, in Africa, in all parts of Asia, even some were bundled and sold in Canada with adapters, from what I understand.  So FDS to Cart Falsion and Dababa carts, for example, exist in reasonable quanities, just as much as any others do, and thus needs for "reproing" this sort of cart is just as a way to line the reproer's pockets, especially given the price point (how does it even make sense for a repro to be worth equal to the "original"?)

As I mentioned earlier, and I'll say it again.  I don't think this sort of stuff should be encouraged or endorsed on here, what is the point of collecting modern fakes and polluting the market, taking a dump in every other collector's pond, and giving a middle finger to boot (just for self greed)?  As a whole, the community needs to look at the big picture, not short-sighted profits.

With that said, Price Check forum might not be the place for debating repro ethics, but I also feel it is not the place to be trying to gauge your price points for what to charge for your modern repro fakes either.

I am still confused though.  What good would come from releasing modern repros of these games, for a similar price point as the originals, especially when the originals are readily available?  Maybe we should just open up shop and start making repro Lickles and Herberekes, Gimmicks and Adventure Island IVs, etc.  Many people want to collect physical carts, but don't have access to getting the originals, why not? 

L___E___T, I respect your opinions and hold you in high regards on this forum.  With that said though, the idea of making repros and then even selling them for basically full price of the originals just doesn't suit well with me.  As an aside, you've surely seen the list I've created and have been maintaining (the latest revised version is only on my harddrive, but PM me if you want it) of Famicom game carts...excluding multicarts (what a mess to try to document), I've been trying to document all hacks, variants, etc. released  **during** the Famicom's "time", basically no Aliexpress stuff makes it on the list, but if a company like Nice Code decides to create a new unlicensed game, it makes it on. 

I have a few carts that just sit in limbo, because even after handling tons of old bootlegs, tons of modern (Aliexpress - style) bootlegs, etc, I just have no idea if they are period pieces or modern-made stuff not worthy of inclusion.  First world problems, I know, but some people actually do care about the history of the machine, etc and likewise, some people actually **do** care about collecting **authentic** bootlegs (I just had a chat with someone recently about how the original Steepler Dendy carts (i.e. boots) sell like hotcakes, yet the new incarnations are worthless).  Either way, projects like the one brought to light a few posts up just blur the line and muddy the waters, and are more damaging than they are useful.

The fact of the matter is that it is not against forum rules to buy/sell/make/what ever bootlegs or reproductions of games for old game systems such as Famicom/super Famicom/Genesis/MegaDrive/gameboy etc (rule 12). It is however against forum rules to troll flame or fight with other members (rule 6).

No one has broken a rule yet but the way things are progressing, that might change.

Fcgamer. I understand you view on modern bootlegs and repros and appreciate your passion for standing up for what you believe in,  having said that, maybe it might be better to just agree to disagree since this topic has come up many times in the last couple years, and it always ends the same.

80sfreak. Same applies to you. Let's just agree to disagree on the "issue" at hand here and get back to the topic that this thread was designed for.

You are both valued members and I respect both of you. Let's try to move past this and get back to playing retro games. :D


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fcgamer on September 25, 2015, 10:33:45 PM
SumixXam, what you state below is true; however, it would be extremely hard to ever set an adequate rule addressing such things in place, due to the nature / history of Famicom itself.  Let's say for instance that we decided to forbid the sale of fakes on the site, in the spirit of collecting; what about Dendy games and Pegasus games, Whirlwind Manu games, etc?  Of course they would also end up on the forbid list despite being "more authentic" than a modern repro.  Thus I think a rule specifically forbidding the sale of repros would never come to fruitation, due to the number of strings necessary to make it work.

I personally don't know about you or others, but as I mentioned earlier, the way things have gone in the NES collecting scene is a real shame, and so far the Famicom scene has kept such riff raff more limited.  So while it may not necessarily be against the rules (please see my explanation above as to why something like this would never end up being against the rules), I still do maintain that it is against the collector spirit, (if we look solely from a gamer perspective, it should be okay to make and sell 1:1 Lickle and Gimmick repros...), and from where I sit, I personally wouldn't want to be in a community that supports or condones such stuff, either openly or otherwise, since actions like that ultimately hurt more than the casual collector.

The fact of the matter is that it is not against forum rules to buy/sell/make/what ever bootlegs or reproductions of games for old game systems such as Famicom/super Famicom/Genesis/MegaDrive/gameboy etc (rule 12). It is however against forum rules to troll flame or fight with other members (rule 6).

I personally don't agree with making 1:1 copies of games and trying to pass them off as original. our members can usually spot such cases though and threads like that usually end up getting locked. Perhaps a rule can be made prohibiting the sale of 1:1 copies of games. Would that be a step in the right direction?

The conversation keeps coming up because nobody does anything about the problem is my 2c worth.

My understanding is that chipped FDS->FC conversions are only worth money for historical purposes.  They're older and/or less common than glob topped conversions or simple copies of NES versions. 

If you were to create your own chipped conversions/copies/whatever nowadays (which is what you seem to actually be asking), I can't imagine them being worth anything more than the materials used to make them.  You can replicate the cartridges but you can't replicate the history.

Hello!

I have several GameBoy game that i dont play anymore, and i wanted to know how much can i sell them as a loot on ebay.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: ScarletDreamz on September 27, 2015, 09:09:12 PM
They are official ones, the original labels were very damaged, so i just  created ones by myself.

The pokemon games, some of them the battery works, some of them they dont, ill prefer to sell all the games as a loot, or get a hint how much to sell them on ebay as a loot, i would sell them separatedly only if its worth it. How much do you offer?


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: MaxXimus on September 27, 2015, 11:02:38 PM
I was interested if they were bootleg. I'd potentially be interested in the gameshark and memory card but you'd probably want more thani was willing to spend.

I'd say about US$100. Is it grey or a bit yellowed? And are you including the cables and maybe a Super Mario Bros? If you include those, it should be about US$120-130.

Yes, cables included but not PSU.  It's grey, very nice condition.  I do have a spare SMB, so I'd probably throw that in too.  Thanks :)

Hello Famicom World!

I have a few brand new sealed Famicom games that I would like to know the approx value of.

FDS Metroid - original plastic wrap and sticker intact
FDS Zelda - original plastic wrap and sticker intact
FDS Zelda II - original plastic wrap and sticker intact
FDS Kid Icarus- original plastic wrap and sticker intact

Cart - Contra (Gryzor)
Cart - Akumajo Dracula
Cart - Metal Gear
Cart - Zelda

I have an idea of what these may go for but just curious as to other points of view.
And as always thank you for all your input!


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Nightstar699 on October 23, 2015, 04:16:04 AM
Well, Famicom carts were never sealed when they were new, firstly, so I wouldn't place their value as being any different than just a mint CIB copy.

As for their values, Contra is worth around $250-$350 in mint shape (and it was never called Gryzor in Japan, by the way, that name was only given to certain European ports of the game), Akumajo Dracula is worth around $250-$300, Zelda is worth around $50-$80. Unsure of the rest.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: retroplayer on October 23, 2015, 06:30:06 PM
I personally bought my Famicom Contra in Japan from a little game store in Shinjuku in 1991. It is indeed shrink wrapped and still has the 2400 yen sticker on it. I've seen CIB Contra go for 300+ so i can only assume this worth quite a bit more. The other carts have never been opened and do not have shrink wrap. They are new, but I see your point about CIB vs New. I will try to post pics later tonight.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Nightstar699 on October 23, 2015, 06:38:43 PM
Ah, gotcha... that's interesting, I guess the store itself sealed up the games, because I'm pretty sure they weren't released as "factory sealed" in the way the NES games were. If your Contra is super minty then maybe I could see it going up to $400... I'd love to see pictures of this stuff, by the way.

IMO Metroid is 40-60, Zelda is 80-100. Zelda 2 seems to command more 125 or so. And Kid Icarus is 50-70.

It's super Mario Bros 3. I believe that version has unlimited items. I have an identical copy with a yellow shell that has that hack.  The other 2 are multicarts. Mario 3 is probably worth about $10 and the value of the multicarts is subjective. Probably $10 ish each as well.

Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: fcgamer on January 20, 2016, 12:00:46 PM
It depends, I would say between $20 - $70, depending on the quality of the device.  With these clones, there are some which are mediocre at best and some that can do amazing things.

With that said, I'd be interesting in seeing the software you have, and possibly buying some of it if you are willing to part with that alone.


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Wanderer on January 20, 2016, 02:26:58 PM
I've got one loose cartridge from the keyboard clones (no case,) the menu is in Russian, and has the normal stuff (Counting games, word games, G BASIC, etc, and a few pirate games)

I wouldn't want to sell the other cartridges without the clones unfortunately, the best one's probably with the one with the printer port, but I wouldn't want to split the two seeing as it actually has the software to print  ;D

If you're interested in the loose cartridge send me a PM

I don't know about $150 but yes the game has risen very much so.  Combine that with retro games being much more desired than in 2012.  
 
I would search eBay sold listings for a decent litmus test.  Bootlegs are already selling for $40 though...


Title: Re: Price Check
Post by: Raverrevolution on July 08, 2016, 02:21:13 PM
There is virtually like no info on the value of this one.  This is what I gathered;

Ebay;
Current listings up - $200+
Sold listings - Non that have been sold
I never ever see this game pop up.

Yahoo Japan;
Current listings up - $118-130 bid, $128 buy it now
Sold listings - No clue how to get to that
+$20 on whatever price bought for proxy service since I live in the USA

Super Potato;
$138.  Yeah I know they're overpriced, but it gives me a better idea of the going price.

Googling price guide;
Shows out of date price guide that it used to be sold for $30ish which matches old talk on these forums.

I gather that $120ish is the most fair price for this at this moment, but I'd figure someone here could give me feedback if they think $140-150 is waaaay too much for this.

Depends on the rarity. More common bootlegs can go for around $15, but some rare ones, e.g. Rockman Super 6 in 1, can go for $50-$60. If you can't find any on eBay, it might be even more.

Hi there! Been quite a while since my last visit...
Anyway! I'm considering to sell my Top Rider. The bike's box has some has seen better days, and the top right corner was taped together (last pic). Everything else though, is in great condition. Couldn't detect any holes and the rubber still feels like it should. The pump is a little stiff, but also still works and there's also still the little bag with the repair glue. Cartridge and box also still look great
So what could I expect for this?

Thank you :) That's nice to hear! Already anyone interested?^^
BTW Another question.

I also still have Block I want to get rid off. Sadly the box and plastic inlay don't look so good anymore, and the hands are missing. Cart, manual, and the remaining accessories are fine.

Could somebody tell me if this is a fair price for Kyouryuu Sentai Zyuranger? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kyouryuu-Sentai-Zyuranger-Famicom-Japanese-Import-FC-NES-Japan-US-Seller-B-/132046867929?hash=item1ebe9b4dd9:g:BQUAAOSwZQRYY1Oa

I'm very new to Famicom games so I'm not sure how commonly these pop up and what a decent price for it would be. Just wondering if it's a bit high or around what it usually goes for. Any insight would be appreciated, thanks.

Personally, I would say no, I paid half that for a mint loose copy - so I either got a very good deal or it is overpriced.  Likely a mixture of both.

I think $25 is reasonable for it, but this is one of those games that will keep going up in price, imo.

Thanks a lot for the input guys. Very insightful. Just didn't want to jump into buying at the price of the only 3 listings on eBay without getting a bit more information. It's the first time I ever even looked it up so I wasn't real sure of the standard of what it goes for usually. I think I'll just bide my time and wait. Very much appreciated.  ;D

I have no idea what a fair price is, as I had bought my loose copy probably 15 years ago, and I was just a high school kid then, so I probably paid about $10 - $20 for it.  I actually did a search earlier today on this game, as I had found a loose copy (and already have one).  I saw prices ranging from about $75 - $115, excluding shipping.  If you are interested in the one I just found today, I'd let you have it for $85 shipped.

Hello, you could try these - but sadly they're not so accurate, and it all depends on condition and other things.

http://www.videogamepriceguides.com/blog/nintendo/nintendo-famicom/

http://vgstats.blogspot.co.uk/2011/08/famicom-price-guide.html

However, best course is honestly to look at freshly SOLD listings (not completed, not plain old Buy It Now listings) on eBay on a title by title basis and average it.  

As a rule take 15-20% off that price if you are selling them outside of eBay, factoring in cheaper forum prices where you don't have to eat the 15-20% eBay fees.  

If you can list all the carts that would greatly help, and I will make you some good offers on any I am currently looking for as well to help :)  

Here you go - if you change the title in the search field here, you can get a very quick view on most of them: (change "Kirby" to whatever game title)

http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=kirby%20famicom%20-super%20-magnet%20-poster%20-print&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&rt=nc&_trksid=p2045573.m1684

Key is to use SOLD games, because you'll never get an accurate price just looking at what other people are listings games for...

Some of those never even move for years from being listed too high - hence why we have a 'Ridiculous Auctions' thread here haha.

Are all the games genuine, or a mix of pirate / bootleg games as well?  That will also change things, as you'll see from ended listings.

This member sold one or two as well. (https://www.ebay.com/usr/toys_and_curiosotys)

Even though the sales originated from different seller, I can definitely remember a good number of different sales happening in late 2016 up to this lot that sold in last october. (not counting any from greece). All links expired tho.

Any idea how this is used or how I could test it? I have several famicoms and famiclones around, as well as a few disk systems... I’ve had it for about ten years (safely stored) but it came as part of a larger collection of famicom disks that were mixed between legit games and disks labeled things like Nintondo, etc... and I’ve never understood it’s purpose. I’d love to get it into the hands of someone who actually wants it.

Price check from the forum experts? I've sold another CIB Street Fighter II (GG version) for 180$ a few years ago. This one's brand new unopened though. The loose manual was probably for a hard-shell FC game, I might have a photo somewhere. I think it was inside the Three Kingdoms game so I took it out.

The Famicom stuff, $100 each, though the fighters maybe $120 - $150.

The Street Fighter GG, it's a hard sell IMO, just not as many collectors going for it.  I think $100 is fair, though if you can get more, go for it!

Some Dendy cartridges can sell for a lot in Russia. It really depends of the title and if there are people on the market for a given title.

The other estimate on Crazy Land is low. If you see it for $15 - $20, it's likely a BIN from an unknowing seller, and grab it while you can.

I'd say $40 or so is much more the reality on this one.
