Damn, someone is selling a CIB green button Steel Battalion for $120, but I just don't have room for it now :(

This is from a pawn shop close to my house. They've been getting painfully good at pricing their games fairly (looking up values online, etc). If you look at the price tag it says "Hero Fighters" -- my theory is they couldn't read the title accurately, did a search for "Hero Fighters" and came up empty-handed so they just decided to throw on a random middle-of-the-road price. Bad typography FTW. :)

The store was busy when I found this; they keep their games inside a locked glass case and you need to grab an employee to open it. I guarded this thing like a hawk until an employee walked by. Haha.

Hoping some rubbing alcohol will take care of that marker; labels and cart are fantastic otherwise.

Few years ago a local pawn store called Record Head had that game for ~$75. I put it on hold, when I went to pick it up / buy it, they said they listed it on Ebay and sold it for over $350. My fault, but still a douche move.

I think they looked up Aero Fighters and didn't notice that the repros for sale weren't the real games, there's some for sale for $25

Record Head is a craphole anyway. 4 out of the 5 times I've been there it's smelled like someone took a dump.

Prices, on games anyway, are usually right on with Ebay prices, not a $1 less. I did buy Chew Man Fu (TG16) CIC, there for $35, which is what it was going for...back in 2012/2013, and now it's maybe double? But still...worth checking out every now and then just to see the items up close.

Thanks! You know what the craziest thing is? The price tag has the date the game came in (01/14, the previous day). Meaning it sat out there for at least a day. You have to wonder how many people passed through and saw it but didn't know the value.

I popped it in the SNES last night and got to the fifth level -- I was on the easiest difficulty but damn it gets hard. Super fun though.

Used some rubbing alcohol on the marker this morning and it's working quite well -- got about 90% of it off, just some very small remnants left. I'll keep scrubbing.

I guess someone donated their entire collection of Pokemon games:

Gears has no game disc, but the case and sleeve are in great shape and I am pretty certain all the bonus stuff is in there.
All for about $68.
