UPDATE

Trying my best to keep up with updating here too, since I still get quite a few views per day...someone is looking, so I'm not moving to just instagram. Besides, once the garage sale season comes to its tragic conclusion, I'll need to post here more often anyway...


An early Thursday morning sale proved pretty awesome ^


Got a counterfeit NECA Don. Ordering the set ASAP because they're fucking amazing.


Got the 3 controllers for $1 each...yes, they're DS3. Thank jeebus, I needed some new controllers. The PSP are both for sale, silver one is currently sold. Black comes with a 2gb memory card. No charger, and has a scratch on the screen, but if you're not picky it's an OK player.


Couple randoms I grabbed, $1 each. Beer was OK...I prefer a maltier brew.


Stone Protector and Madball sold, foot soldier for me, cat stole the hippo.


Rad old school lunchbox. One from 1980, not a remake...Saturday after I missed a huge game lot in my own neighborhood. I was devastated.


I'm a sucker for these niche game collectors editions, and it was $20 new.


Scoped out some thrift stores, didn't get much...too picked over.


And some really dope posters I got from my friend milligangames on Nintendo Age. I highly suggest checking him out...these 2 were only $15 shipped, you can get any print you like if its a high resolution. I plan on getting the other turtles games sooner than later.


Oh man! An early Thursday morning scoop! Funnily enough, I hit this sale as a time killer before the one I really wanted to go to. It was a grandma who had it in her house from the grandkids...goes to show, you can never ever skip a sale by spying it from the road. You never know who will have something awesome. Keeping all except the top row (which I already have) and Killer Instinct Gold (because it's a semi-hot game that I couldn't care less about). Also replacing my boring old N64 with this snazzy colorfied one. 2 copies of Mario Kart ($23 shipped each), one copy of Ocarina of Time ($18 shipped) are left for sale...the rest are sold or are in my collection (55 N64 games now!)


Package from my homie Dr. Gonzo at ETC Toys  ...check him out and buy some of his moai heads. They look awesome :]


Backpack was $10 at Walmart...I couldn't pass it up. Random baggies of toys I grabbed in a box after a day of not even finding a single video game x.x


Random squat Star Wars figures...going on ebay shortly, please hit me up if you'd like to make an offer first. I'm thinking $20 shipped.


Marvel group from the baggies...already sold.



Rando Star Wars lot...looking to sell, I'm gonna say $25 shipped for my buddies reading this. Hitting ebay next week so get on it.


Finally got Stick of Truth. Beat it really quickly...will probably run through again soon to get the platinum. Worth every dollar.


And finally a "mystery crate" from lootcrate. Aka "we couldn't get rid of this stuff so we're having a sale". I grabbed it, I think it was $14. I was kinda disappointed, but that Jazz figure is actually a chase variant and 1/48, so it made the whole box worth it. He's $25 shipped and hitting ebay next week as well...

Thanks for reading. Almost the weekend again, and I see ~20 sales listed. Lets hope for something good. One mentioned a "barely used PS3 slim", but I don't think they're in the affordable zone for me just yet. If I can cop it for like $50 I'll have a second one...but if not, I'm gonna pass.

Woah! Long overdue!

My bad! I haven't updated in so long. I have been posting a LOT over on instagram, but not everyone has that, so I'll still be doing periodic updates here...I have bought and sold a lot of stuff, here is what I've had. A lot of this is sold, what I didn't have/wanted I kept though. Couple new rad PS1 additions...and some signed turtles gear! Grabbed a bunch more of the TMNT comics and started reading the IDW series (which I absolutely love by the way)...just check out these photos for now...and follow me on instagram for sales and much quicker updates - @315retro


One of my favorite PS1 games finally off the list.


That's the rare "audiophile" PS1...for sale on my ebay account. Mario Kart was $1 haha.


Scooped this random box of comics for $10...no gems, but I've at least made my money back on it and kept 1 or 2.


Comic and Fugitoid figure box both signed by the legendary Mr. Peter Laird


These were on clearance for $2 each from Toys R Us.


Random Bart I couldn't just leave sitting...might get the rest of the family this weekend (its a flea market, they're always there in a big box)


Got the OG turtles to display with my Funko ones...will probably continue the trend and get the OG run for all Funko (turtles) figures I buy.


Few random TMNT Adventures comics...should have 1-20 by the end of this week. IDW volume 1 from a reddit gifts exchange. I have volume 2 and 3 as well...getting the others ASAP! I'm in love with this series, and I'll probably do a little review on it soon.


Random garage sale finds. COD sold, the rest I'm keeping.


$1 each finds, so rad. Megaman and Custom Robo sold, Lugis Mansion on ebay (case swap with my shitty copy) and keeping the rest.


Traded for these...mostly wanted Fugitoid, but got the others because...why not?


For anyone interested McDonalds has the Mario Kart toys on the right (there are 8 total). You don't have to eat the rancid food to get them, they're like $2 each. Or just buy all of them on ebay for $20.


Rando lot of Bakugan I grabbed for $5. On sale for $20 shipped.


Finally, this box. I packed it with random extras I had around and it's getting given away Friday on my instagram. Go like the picture.

Thanks y'all. Sorry its taken me so long...I've just been really favoring instagram haha. When the season slows down (:C) I'll be posting more game streams and what not...for now, I'm enjoying outdoors and garage sales.

Peace.

New stuff update...a light weekend.

I got a bunch of new stuff, but no real decent video game finds. I did however meet a guy at a garage sale who took my name and number down...apparently his son has "all the TMNT stuff in the basement still sealed". He said they need to get rid of it soon...maybe nothing will come of it, but it's an exciting possibility for sure.

TMNT board game (not very complete, it was $1  and I bought it to hang up since I love the box art), and the rest. NSMB Wii is $15 shipped if anyone is interested!

A figure from Funko Spastik Plastik line I think. I just really like the monkey assassin line. Unfortunately I can't find many more of these online.

At my best friends lawn sale...Gameboy is sold, PS2 comes with a bunch of games and stuff - $45 shipped. Nothing spectacular, but Spyro and Ape Escape are included (disc only). Fallout NV collectors guide. It's hard cover! :D













All caught up on comics again. Waiting for Boom! to ship my Adventure Time subscription...ugh, probably won't subscribe again. They're not very good at keeping up with it.

Won an ebay auction for this...never played this series!


Probably my favorite addition. A mini 10-Doh figure! I'll probably go crazy with these soon...I see it coming.







And my new Funko Pop figures. Yeah, I went kinda overboard.

I'm doing a lot of selling on instagram...@315retro if you're interested!

HUGE Garage Sale Find

I'm skipping over a few weeks worth of stuff here to post todays find. I would go out on a limb here and say this might be the very best find I've ever had...although my Saturn find last year gives this a run...I grabbed over 50 games for various systems today, along with a boxed Sega Saturn! I'm still in shock at this find, what a great start to my summer.


I should mention that all of these are currently untested...although I'm sure it won't be much of an issue. I haven't checked to make sure all the discs are in the boxes either actually...(although I made sure Mr. Bones was in there ;) )


23 NES games, 2 SNES -

Burger Time
Golf
Double Dragon
Jordan vs Bird
Super C
Super Mario 2

My mom grabbed this (haha she went to the sale with me). OG DS, case, 3 game cases, Nintendogs, Club Penguin and Mario 64 DS...she wants me to sell it for her, so this will be up for sale.

There are a few memory cards there, notably a Soul Reaver special edition PS1 memory card. NEAT. Can't find much on this but I haven't had time.

Tetris, Pokemon Card Game, and I'm 99.9% sure that's Pokemon Crystal without a label. I don't think any other games used that specific shell.


A boxed Dreamcast! I've never had a Dreamcast, and I was actually really hoping I'd find one. I didn't imagine I'd find one in the box though. WHAT A FIND!


An assortment of random Star Wars toys. These will be up for sale when I get around to it...got a lot to do this weekend.

And finally, I'll just put the other stuff I've gotten and neglected to upload here in this same post...since I'm here, ya know?




Got this Pikmin 3 poster from my Gamestop power up points!



A bunch of new Funko Pop! figures...I got the exclusives first. A whole bunch more coming in the mail.




WHEW. Keep an eye on my facebook page (www.facebook.com/315retro) as well as on instagram (@315retro) for when I decide to put this stuff up for sale. It'll be some time next week I'd imagine.

Thanks for looking!
