One appeared on eBay some months ago & it ended up going for quite a lot of money. I think I chickened out when bids went past £90! And more recently, the Skyrim CE Guide, which I stupidly didn't preorder & now they appear on ebay for £60+.
hey Morkin, I have 3 of thos, 1 still mint and in its delivery box, let me knwo if you want one. you can havce a used one for £20 posted

Alisia Dragoon
Moonwalker (I've seen it, but I am still waiting for a good price)
Devil Hunter Yohko
Alien Soldier
Bare Knuckle 3 (jp)
Pulseman
Yu Yu Hakusho

SNES:

Metal Warriors
Ranma 1/2 Hard Battle
Wild Guns

PS1:

Suikoden 2

DC:

Capcom vs SNK 2
Last Blade 2 (jp)
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (jp)

PS2:

Outrun 2006
Wizardry Tale of the Forsaken land
Chaos Wars

GBA: Ninja 5-0/Cop

These are the ones that come to mind right now.

If you don't mind missing manuals, I have a boxed Alisia Dragoon you can have. I have two you see. This one cost me nothing so I want nothing for it.

I'm still trying to track down the Chinese Limited Edition Megaman X8. I forever check the usual places (Amazon China, Taobao) but its never in stock. Sadly the closest to finding it was last week where I had a dream where I found it on a Japanese auction site, and even then I still didn't manage to get it :?

Other than that I'm slowly tracking down more Amiga Capcom ports for my Capcom Collection. I finally managed to get Black Tiger last month and am now trying to find Ghosts n Goblins and 1943. I'm also slowly dipping in and out of getting more Game and Watch handhelds - Greenhouse and Fire (New Widescreen) are the next two I'd like to get once I save a bit more money up.

As they are so rare, boxed Mattel Aquarius cartridges are my collecting holy grail. In the last 4 years I've manage to aquire just three!


I also collect non-commodore Vic 20 cartridge games - Thorn Emi/ AtariSoft etc. Again hard to find, but not quite as hard as the Aquarius games.

Largo Winch is something I've seen a lot of times in Gamestation and Game - usually only for quid or so. Well worth checking there or Cex

@ Timothy Lumsden

if their is 1 shop i cannot stand it is CEX its like being in a rock club on a thursday night.

basically the shop plays constant s h i t music. its over priced. it stinks. and it is full of butt ugly teenagers that are dressed like marilyn manson.

I'm sure i saw a Largo Winch in Crack Convertors tonight. want me to pick it up if it's still there on Saturday? All PS2 games are £1.50.

Personally, i'm just looking for Gamecube games i don't yet own. Getting harder to find stuff now.... :(

I should also add that I've been looking everywhere for a complete steelbook CE of Soul Calibur IV for ages now but it's much rarer than I thought and usually stupidly expensive or missing either the DVD or character booklet. Wish I'd owned a PS3 when it originally came out!
