And now here are Incredible Machine and Stellar 7. Note that the shrink on Stellar 7 was torn in the back; obviously I can't rule out a reseal job, but given that it came to me with a bunch of other sealed games that look legit, I doubt it.

I'll certainly open up the other four games at some point (counting Pebble Beach/Twisted as two), but two's enough for today. :D

EDIT: Oh, it occurs to me that I also have three sealed Japanese sports games that I can open up as well. Too lazy to look up the exact titles right now but it's the baseball one, the soccer one, and the golf one. 8)

So, after receiving my new Starblade, I noticed that someone actually posted pics of a sealed one. I opened my copy though! :twisted: It comes with a Panasonic Warranty card and also another card that is folded in half and roughly the size of a full piece of paper that has the Panasonic Limited Warranty information on it. Then the Starblade game in a jewel case with back artwork and the instruction booklet. I'll take pics later, but no pamphlets, booklets or other fun stuff like that with this game, sadly.

Thanks for opening!

I just remembered I have a Sealed Japanese copy of Dragon's Lair, but it's just a jewel case with OBI. I think we are just trying to do a list of the US stuff right? Maybe if it were a special edition like D's Diner...

And here's your checklist of all seven items that should come in a complete copy of Iron Angel of the Apocalypse: The Return.

Sorry for the oversized images, but I can't figure out how to set image dimensions with BBCode, and the whole process of copy-and-pasting these into an editing application, resizing them, and saving them in the new format, one-by-one, is just too time-consuming. I guess I could have stuffed more items into each photo as I took them, but I keep forgetting that BBCode has this problem.

1) Cellophane seal with Next Generation promo sticker
Image

2) The game long box
Image

3) The game manual, black-and-white but thick with all the info you could want
Image

4) Synergy survey postcard
Image

5) Limited warranty from Synergy
Image

6) The Next Generation promotional offer promised on the cover sticker
Image

7) Jewel case with the game itself, sealed in cellophane. The jewel case cover is a single sheet with artwork on both sides.

Very nice!

Does the game have rear insert artwork as well?

If so, might try and pick up a case-only US copy for my collection at some point...

Whoops, thanks for reminding me. Yes, it does have rear insert artwork, which is the same as the artwork on the back side of the front insert but inverted, oddly enough.

I also bought Mad Dog 2 and Last Bounty Hunter brand new back in 96, i no longer have those, but i can confirm that they had exactly the same paper items included as the above two ALG games, although the brochure on other games available was slightly different in each one, the game it game with was not included in the brochure, for obvious reasons that you have the whole game and dont need a brochure on it ;)

Here's my sealed collection guys. Snapped up almost ALL the 3DO games the store owner had at the time (1995ish) including many opened doubles. Since the guy was selling up and i knew him i got them for bugger all, plus at the time everyone else was doing PS1 or Saturn and no one wanted to know about 3DO. 8)

EDIT:
jeez...i just rotated these darn stupid pics and saved them and they STILL turned out upside down and sideways. :|

A delayed adjustment from a photobucket edit me thinks *shrugs*. After taking the photos i rotated and resized them in thumbs plus 8, when i uploaded them to photobucket one was upside down, the other was sideways?? ...so i rotated them via the edited function in photobucket so they looked nice. When i posted them here it was like i had done nothing to them in the first place. Now they are back to normal?...strange :|

Congrats on the FZ-10 purchase. I bought one of those back in the days and it was great. Stylish and has a pretty decent controller. Great games too.

Look what I got in the mail yesterday!

Image

It's a sealed copy of Guardian War!

Image

Look at that gorgeous H-Seam just waiting to be ripped!

Image

Speaking of which...

Image

Inside is one of those survey cards they want you to fill out even though you never do. Here's the front...

Image

...And the back.

Image

Hmm...I wonder if the warranty is still good?

Image

The front of the jewelcase...

Image

...the back...

Image

...and the inside.

I apologize that a lot of these pictures look like garbage. If you want, I can retake pictures of the contents.

Don't think there's any need for you to retake pictures, Arjak. After all, the purpose of this thread is to simply make an inventory of what's in each game. Which you've done nicely.
