Another non-gaming item: for those who aren't familiar with ReBoot, it was a tv show that was either the very first all-CGI entertainment venture or it was the second one, as there was an all-CGI show in either France or Spain that came out the same year (no one seems to know which was first, last I heard). It came out three years before the first Toy Story movie, being about the little people who live inside our computers
Anyway, I bought a lot of the ReBoot cards that were made, not knowing beforehand you could buy an entire set of every single card and be done with it, so I have a ton of duplicates. They are all in very nice shape, barely anything wrong with any of them, and have a glossy finish. I also have several of the special cards, being ones with a 3D effect on them, ones that are see through, and Chromium cards with a silver or gold finish to them.
If anyone is familiar with the show and is interested, we can start some talks going in regards to price and how many you might want and all.
My Super Ex-Girlfriend dvd (starring Uma Thurman, Luke Wilson and Rainn Wilson of The Office) is up for grabs for a trade. Due to dvds being cheap, I figure its worth a common Sega Genesis, Atari 2600, or 7800 game in exchange. I'll even take a more hard to get Sega CD, 32X, 2600, 7800 or Vectrex game for it, which I'll throw in something a bit extra to even it up a bit. I still need a lot of commons from any of those listed systems so let me know what you have. And also let me know if you have a scanner or not, since if not, I'd like to keep the menu inlay card, as this movie has a pretty nice cover If you do have a scanner, then just scan the card cover and e-mail it back to me and that'd work.
Does anyone need an RF box for the models 2 or 3 of the Sega Genesis? I've got a spare one, but can't confirm if it works well, is snowy or whatever (I have two Genesis', but they're both the original model). So, I wouldn't be selling it for much, just mostly for shipping and all (about all I can do is put up a pic of it if you want).
Anyone interested in any books? I've got three, and they're all totally different!
Photos can be provided if anyone's interested.
Getting the first out of the way for obvious reasons, there's the Secret Codes for Handhelds 2006 edition, including thousands of codes for the Nintendo DS, GBA and PSP. It's 142 pages with a lot of pictures and is softcover. As far as a grading scale goes, I'd say it's in B- condition overall, with unfortunately some creases and a small tear, mostly on the front cover, but the rest of it's in way better shape. The book is basically $3, plus whatever it costs for a mailer and to ship it (I can get a quote first if anyone's interested).
Is anyone into U. S. history, namely 1880s New York? Time and Again is in regards to a person who was recruited for a top secret government project that conducts time travel experiments, usually by their rules, although they make an exception for his request of wanting to go back to 1882 New York, as he has knowledge of a person receiving a blue envelope at one point, which would later lead to his suicide and a bizarre note left behind that stated of a world ending in fire and that he would take his own life. However, this is more of a day to day in 1882 narrative, rather than the sci-fi angle of not messing with the past, or else serious repurcussions could result in the future (which was barely touched on for the first 200 pages). Not a bad book in the least but not really my cup of tea.
This was written by Jack Finney, who also did (Invasion of) The Body Snatchers. It's a softcover book, being 399 pages, which I'd also say is in B or B- condition, although with no tears or missing pages or anything, just the usual dog-eared pages and all. $4 plus whatever shipping will be.
Quest for the Unknown, Life Beyond Death--this is one of a series of books (at least three, possibly more; I don't have any of the others though) that was published by Reader's Digest in 1992. It covers possible celebrity/inventor ties with death (and possibly beyond), religious beliefs, real (or not) photos of the afterlife, talks of out of body experiences and more.
It's a big, hardcover book, 144 pages long. $7 + whatever it'll cost to ship.
In order to (possibly) promote the upcoming Justice League movie (for the year...oh, 2025 or so!), various Cheerios boxes here have promotional comic books included. I have two copies of the To Catch a Thief issue, in a nice quality gloss and decent artwork (in my opinion). Attached photos of these don't really do them justice (har), but I don't have a scanner.
Unlike how everything else up 'til now was only for people here in the States, these I can actually ship overseas if anyone wants them, since a few bucks isn't going to kill me, just send a few bucks to my PayPal account (since I can't use it right now anyway) for coverage will do fine, or maybe some common 2600 carts for those here in my country will do as a trade (or you can save something for later if you don't have anything I want and need; I'm in no hurry).
One is opened, the other one I just got out of a Cheerios box yesterday, which that one will remain sealed (no point in opening it).
This is probably a long shot, but it'd be a shame to toss these, as they were never used, but then, I don't know how long they'll be good for anyway...
As I stated elsewhere the other week on here, I have several CD-Rs up for grabs, although unfortunately they're not the clear ones in case someone wants to use one (or more) for a modern day color wheel alternative.
Pretty nuts: once my dad got a modern day pc at the end of the 90s, his came with a CD-R, so I bought a package of those at Best Buy. That thing was a total, complete and utter piece of garbage that ended up costing a fortune to fix over the years (the computer, I mean). The first time it bit the dust was within six months, and he replaced the cd drive with a RW. Once mom was looking for her own computer, I told her to get CD-R, which she didn't. I was just doing temp work and couldn't afford a new computer and transferring files was something to do when I came over on the weekends as I was doing my laundry. Over the years I just went to flash drives, and with my Chromebook I got for Christmas and I'm using it for file storage, I've done the last CD-R stuff that I'm saving, and the last thing to do is go through a CD-R my Australian buddy sent me throughout those years (yuck, it'd be nice if I could delete files as I went along, since I'll have to take notes on what I want to save and all, as some of that stuff I haven't looked at in years).
Anyway, I figure these are just worth an Atari 2600 common or reimbursement via Paypal for shipping, and unlike my previous ads, I'll actually ship to non-U. S. countries, but then again, it's doubtful someone will need these.
Actually I just need to know (for now) if anyone is in contact with Recycled Gamer and/or if he is still making Vectrex replacement controllers. His web site has been long gone and I PMed him on YouTube two weeks ago (his channel's still up) to no answer, but then due to Google constantly changing things over the years a lot of people either don't get their PM notifications or it takes months before they realize it, if ever.
As someone had posted the other month about the Vectrex Fans Unite! Facebook group being a mess with topics scattered all over and people asking for things like where you get controllers from...well, where DO you get them? (Or was that just meant as an annoyance that you have to wait until someone makes a batch and announces it?) Granted, I need to see about doing the fun task of taking my controller apart and applying those spring fixes (thanks gauze) but I'd also like a modern day controller as well.
For those into The Lord of the Rings, I've got some unusual odds and ends here!
So, first I had found The Fellowship of the Rings extended version dvds over a year ago or something at a resale shop, but it was missing the first disc. I later figured I should've gotten it, since the extras are several hours' worth of viewing, which I haven't seen.
Then just over the weekend I found it again. I thought this was the entire package, but nope, the first disc was still gone. Where'd it been this entire time? It had to have been the same set I saw a year ago or whatever, with that (same) missing disc! I got it this time around.
Well, just freakin' today, I went to a different resale shop, and there's the damn extended version, all four discs!
So, if anyone needs or wants discs 2-4 of the extended version here in the States, I figure it's worth $6 for the holding case (no inlay stuff though) and the discs plus whatever shipping is (I'll get a price first, plus I need to skim through the discs to make sure they work anyway).
Now, with the package I got today, there's some extras with it!
I guess whoever was getting rid of it didn't really know what they had, as they threw in the inlay card to the cd of the Fellowship of the Ring (since I've got that and recognized it instantly!), along with the inlay card to the original dvd/theatrical release (i. e. it's not the extended version). Even some fan club introduction/set of LOTR cards was included too (not up for sale or anything) and not even opened (yet!)!
If anyone anywhere needs the cd inlay and/or dvd inlay I can just send those for free.
