Visionaries & the $1 Nintendo 64
This past week I won a few auctions on Ebay, and they are starting to make their way to my mailbox(this will give me material to write about). I’m pretty sure that I gave away what we’re going to see in the title. But in case you didn’t catch it, I scored some Visionaries!
The blue guy is Leoric, and the red one is Witterquick. I remember really wanting these figures when they were first released, but this is the one that got away, the one toy line I didn’t have anything from.
These 2 represent the good guys, and the only other one I have in my collection is a bad guy who is missing his chest hologram(along with everything else). Each figure came with a weapon, a helmet and a holographic staff. While none of their accessories weren’t included, the auction did include 3 of the holographic staffs! I don’t believe that any of them correspond with the figures, but still pretty cool nonetheless. A steal at 99 cents(+$4 shipping)!
And now to the $1 Nintendo 64.
But before we get to any pictures, let me set up the story of how I acquired such a thing.
On Saturday, myself, my wife, one of our friends and her son, went to go see if we could find any garage/yard sales. It was a warm sunny day, so we thought that it would be perfect for sales. We were wrong, but found a few.
There was a Boy Scout troop having a rummage sale. When we got out of the car, we were told that for $3 we could fill a plastic bag with as much stuff as we wanted. Not more than 30 seconds after this, they reduced the cost to $1 per stuffed bag! I looked at the toys and other stuff that had for sale, but nothing caught my eye. Then I happened upon a box with an N64 control deck and 4 games! I picked up the games, and then went and purchased my $1 bag. These games didn’t fill up the bag, so I grabbed a few other thing out of the box to go with them.
So I grabbed the control deck, a PS1 memory card, the MAX controller and the 4 N64 for games for $1. I definitely got more than I paid for! I didn’t have any of the games, so that’s a plus. It’s not the ultimate score, but very nice, all things considered. I’m going to end up selling the deck and the MAX on the Bay because I already have these items. I’ll keep the memory card though, as you can never have enough of them.
