I'll start with some eBay finds that I got in the mail today:

QuickShot Scope for NES new in package, but plastic piece is disattached from the cardboard backing :(  (seller says it was fully attached prior to shipping, but I'm pretty sure that's a lie....oh well).  Paid 10 euro for it shipped, which is a lot less than what it has sold for in the past.

Lion King mint in box, 13 euro shipped

and a Famicom find...Super Mario IV !!  7 euro shipped!

JC

Do you know if Super Mario IV is the Armadillo hack or something different?

Speedy_NES

Ahh, is that what the original game is called.  Yeah, I'm confident it's the hack.  I used to have the NES version of the game as well until I sold it recently.  Is the Famicom cart version rare?  This was the first time that I saw it anywhere, so I immediately picked it up :)

JC

I don't know how rare it is. You probably know that pirates don't sell for much anyway. I have the same SMB4 Armadillo hack but it came on a Famicom multi-cart called Super Mario Family '92: HERE.

It is a weird hack...

Anyone know of the Super Mario World Famicom hack? I used to have the rom...

That's an awesome hack! Thanks for the link. I've been trying to get my hands on that cart for a while now. Haven't found it yet. Actually, I haven't gotten my hands on any of the 16-bit down to 8-bit hacks.

I wouldn't pay more than about $30 for it. That's the highest I go with unique pirates. But because it's got an aura of cool around it, I bet it could get $50.

Nice finds, man. :) Is New Ghostbusters II any good?

JC

Fine then, NESHero. Be that way. :P

Went to a thrift store yesterday and picked up a CIB Challenge Set. It was my first significant find in DC's overly priced thrift stores. Cost me $14, not bad.

Finally picked up a Snake Rattle N Roll and manual. It's among my top five games and I had yet to find a nice looking copy for cheap. :)
