A little while back a fellow collector, Roger, gave me a heads-up on a few Sega Mega Drive games by Sunsoft. When he told me there were a total of seven Sunsoft games that came in mini cases I got inspired to collect them all.
Some times it’s fun to have small side goal for a collection and this felt like a good candidate. I immediately went looking for the three I was missing. One was inexpensive and the two… not so much.
Below is my latest addition and my fifth Sunsoft mini case game; Tel Tel Stadium. The game is complete and in excellent condition. The video clip is pretty much just the introduction and shows off very little of the game. Looks like it might have been good baseball game for its era.
Tel Tel Stadium cost $12.60 with shipping (it arrived with a few other games). Actually it cost more. It arrived damaged and Hit-Japan was more than willing to replace it but the additional cost of returning and sending another copy put this Tel Tel Stadium at about $24 all in. I should have just bought another copy. I wasn’t thinking.
While I’m talking about Hit-Japan I have to say they are great. Hit-Japan is my favorite ebay seller for Japanese Mega Drive games.
At the same time Roger set out to complete his set of Sunsoft mini case Mega Drive games. He was only missing Flashback and he picked it up for $60. That’s $20 cheaper than the best price I’ve ever seen and passed on. Below you can see his complete set of seven. I think they look great.
Is anyone noticing all those boxed NEO GEO games in the background? They’re stealing a lot of Sunsoft’s thunder!
And here’s Rogers console setup. That’s a good number of systems! On the bottom shelf I can only identify the Super Famicom. I’m not sure what the other three are. And I don’t know what that is under the Genesis and Sega CD. The mystery makes his setup all the more impressive 🙂
But in truth we haven’t yet even touched on Roger dedication to Retro Video Gaming.
Check this out. Is that Roger hang’in out in the arcade? Hells no! That’s his garage. Most people waste their garages on cars. Roger knew better. And I’m impressed.
Someday when I have the space (and money) I’d like to get a few arcade boxes if I can find the right ones.
You might have noticed that I published this post before it was complete. It’s not the first time I’ve screwed up like this. I pulled it and then finished editing and now here it is!.. again 🙂
