      If you're a toy collector, you can usually find good deals at flea markets. I recently found an original, early 80's Zoid, sealed in box for $1.

        ahh zoids what great toys i still have a game of that.

        my gf hates me collecting stuff she says its childish to collect old toys and videos of cartoons and other old shows.................but the thing is she collects porcelain dolls. lol so i just keep my stuff in the loft untill we get a bigger place.

          hmm I've found a few retro pieces at thrift shops. But I'm always on the look out for a bargain so I can't remember the best one

              $20 for the actual first King's Field game. Yes, it's Playstation, but it's 1995. It was reportedly one of the release titles, and it was the only copy I had ever seen. It has the most splendiferous dead bodies!



              Corny-looking!

              I have a Robie the Robot Banker. Again, not as old as some things, but something I wanted so badly as a child.

              ... And the TMNT Splinter figure just like the one I had as a pup. Missing his robe and all o_O; I honestly don't know what is with the proliferation of shirtless rat figures. Ah well.

              Someday I want the four original Ghostbusters figures, the firehouse and the Ecto with -both- guns on the stupid chair. Love!

                      Damn that's like a month's worth, less than a penny each.

                      They weren't used were they?
                      I don't know about you, Miss Kitty, but I feel so much... yummier

                        I think I paid like six bucks for my giant sized Pound Puppy.Considering how rare they seem to be and how much I like him I'd consider that a pretty good deal too.

                                  Picked up a boxed NES Action Set (console, two controllers, a gun, and Mario Bros/Duck Hunt) for $5 at a thrift store last week.

                                  I know, I couldn't believe it either!

                                    Back before it was re-released on the PSX, I snagged a complete copy of Ogre Battle for SNES in mint condition for $40. At the time, in this condition the game was selling anywhere from $120 to $150.

                                    I also snagged an N64 with hookups, two controllers, Rumble Pack, Turok 2, a couple Madden games, Wayne Gretzy Hockey, Doom, and Zelda for fixing somebody's computer.

                                    When I was a real young kid I bought an entire box of those Mad Magazine books for $2.50. There were probably about 40 books with no dupes. I was psyched.

                                    I also bought a brand new, un-opened Action Max with Sonic Fury for $10. It's too bad they didn't release more games for this, as it was a pretty fun system.

                                      Well, I got a Nes with 5 games and an Snes with 13 games both with box's and original foam packaging for free from my cousin and i even got Final Fantasy 1&3. This was an awsome deal i use these systems more than i use my gamecube and comp combined.Another thing i won a nintendo power glove not even opened of .50 cents worth of tickets at my church garden party i opened it and the thing is a peice of crap but it was still worth it!

                                        In Michigan City, IN one summer there was a K-Mart going out of business. I think it was 1997.

                                        My sister and I snagged up brand new NES games for 1 dollar a piece in some cases. We're talking Kirby's Dreamland, Guerilla War, and any other NES games you would want for $1-$5. It was pretty out of control.

                                          I paid £10 for a snes with 2 pads, and 40 games what a bargain eh?
