I messaged him and said hey never got my game and they thought I got lost so they sent out a replacement they sent another another copy out and this finally showed up at my doorstep yesterday so I had now have two cops in this game I also got a copy of steamed bok chronicles a demo disc off of ebay and finally this came in the mail lat yesterday this is the european version of The Legend of Zelda Majora’s Mask 3d this differs from the US release because it has the steelbook as well as I think it’s a poster and a pin so very happy to finally get this I got a notification that it shipped like two weeks ago so I’ve been basically waiting for this to show up at my doorstep but I’m gonna do a unboxing of this later on so definitely cool to have an ad in my collection because I’m a huge zelda fan all right so this next video covers a couple of cool Riku person I found at an arc and the goodwill one of those games i only paid like three dollars for and it’s actually worth about a hundred and eighty dollars so check it out alright so when I got here a couple recoup urge that I picked up from a goodwill and an arc first off it got battle lord of the rings battle for middle-earth one and I pay to 99 for that got another copy of the battle for middle-earth 1 for 2 99 at an arc that’s complete the big box and finally this is probably the creme de la creme of all the Lord of the Rings video games this is the battle for middle-earth anthology this title goes for about 180 190 right now and it’s all three games built in one and not only Paige at two dollars a million nine cents for it so these are all going to be flippers sell all these because i’m not in the pc games and that’s pretty much it for those pickups alright so let’s go over that item that i mentioned in the last pickup video this week i picked up a punch-out arcade cabinet this was on craigslist and the guy wanted 700 or best offer for it by the time two days of negotiation went by i got it for five hundred fifty bucks plus fifty dollars in trade so check it out alright so this is the latest addition to the nintendo game room this is a punch-out arcade cabinet this is the item that I was talking about in the last video that I was trying to save some recoup money for this took a total of two days of negotiation and I think we finalized everything by friday i couldn’t pick it up over the weekend because the impending snow storm that hit us pretty bad so i put a deposit down and cross my fingers and hope that i could pick it up at least by monday that didn’t happen by the way on monday another snowstorm hit us so it wasn’t safe to actually move this i transported this in a open bed truck thanks to my friend Lauren so we were worried about you know snowflakes and everything damaging it if we couldn’t find anything to cover it so luckily on Tuesday the weather cleared up enough for us to get this we laid it flat on its back and it got downstairs in less than 10 minutes so very happy to add this through the collection so what did I pay for this I pay a total of five fifty plus fifty dollars in trade he originally wanted 700 but after being a little persistent and you know having great communication with him back and forth about this he decided to drop it to 600 and then when he found out that I had a lot of 80s and 70s memorabilia he said hey let’s trade some of that towards this as well so without further ado let’s take a look so we’ll start with the left panel as you can see it’s an excellent shape the side artwork is pristine no tears or anything in it there is a little bit of a scuff mark there on the right side from it being moved this has been moved a total of three different times not including the move from his house to my house the control panel overlay is an excellent shape everything is in mint condition including the Plexiglas and both top and bottom screens don’t have any burn in the quarter slot works just fine in fact it’s set to take quarters right now I’m not sure how to program it’s a free play mode but let’s take a look inside so as you can see it’s a little game counter and I guess these batteries are for saving the high scores and everything but the inside of this cabinet is in

immaculate shape no dust bunnies no rust nothing alright so let’s move along the bottom a coin box houses the instruction manuals so that was pretty cool to have that included in this some slight scuffing over there on the on the front panel as you can see speakers work going to the right side besides an excellent shape as well with exception to a little scuff mark up there so very glad to add this to my collection my history with this arcade cabinet is back in the mid to late 80s I still go to a arcade in Daly City California called the launchpad and funny enough it’s what I’d named is this game room plus a facebook channel that I run so anyways back to the launch pad I used to go there every day after school to meet up with some friends and hang out and whatnot and they had a arcade there that had tons and tons of classic games and I played this one a lot this is an exciting cause excitebike was next to it to the right of it at this arcade I played there this excitebike there was Tron their discs at Ron that is not the actual Tron arcade as well as like Return of the Jedi and the star wars arcade you know the little cockpit arcade cabinet as well as like gapless gyrus I’m just tons of classics there so lots of history and memories behind this machine I dumped a lot of quarters in this one as well and it’s a lot harder than the home versions home versions of this game so anyways I just thought you guys should meet alright so after we moved that arcade cabinet downstairs Lauren Vernon and myself we did a bunch of trading that night so i traded like a madden PSP which is the blue one plus starfox 64 for the 3ds i traded that with Lauren and got the following I got this little Pokemon Pikachu kind of Tamagotchi looking a little mini game thing a sealed copy of b2 raider for the PSP a game that I’ve been looking for for a while for the ps1 in the hunt I don’t know why this game is a rare I haven’t played it yet but it looks interesting but I’ve been looking for this one for a while so thanks Lord for the trace for this and finally a copy of a tell yer to Tori the adventurer of arland this is a collector’s edition complete for the ps3 so once again thank you Lauren for the trades all right so this next item I got from Tom the guy that sold me the punch-out cabinet in addition to the stuff that I traded for fifty dollars you know towards the cabinet I also kicked him in some free stuff so in return he gave me for free this Coleco Telstar he says it’s not working he can’t find the power cord for it or anything so I actually think it might work because without the power cords you can’t really tell whether it works or not so I’m hoping that’s the case I’m gonna try and locate and track down a power cord for this so as soon as I do I will let you guys know whether this worked or not so thanks again tom for the freebies and hope you enjoy all that other stuff that I gave you alright so this is that $60 craigslist lot the nes portion of this was forty dollars and the wii portion of this bundle was twenty bucks let’s go over the games Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles kings of the beach TMNT turtles to arcade game contra Batman wheel of fortune wheel of fortune featuring Vanna White cyber stadium series base wars ramble jaws Gunsmoke Top Gun second mission Top Gun Tecmo Super Bowl and that’s jumped up in price T 2 star trek 25th anniversary rest in peace mr.
