Another excellent find for the collection over the weekend! I pIcked up a copy of Mega Man V for the original Game Boy. The cart is in absolutely perfect condition as is the label, and as a double bonus the manual was also included, also in in perfect condition. If you have been following Game Boy stuff at all in the past year, you’ll know that it is becoming highly collectable and the prices are rising. Mega Man V, for instance, commonly goes for between $60 and $80 loose. The price I paid? $9.95 plus taxes at a local thrift store. A pretty good deal, I would say.
An interesting factoid about Mega Man V of the Game Boy; it was the last Mega Man game (until Mega Man 9, that is) to use the classic Mega Man sprite that debuted in the original Mega Man for the NES. It is also supposed to be one of the best Mega Man games of all time, but I haven’t really had a chance to get into it that much yet.
I have a bunch of updates coming this week after I kind of took last week easy, so check back.
