So after several requests/death threats/offers, I've finally managed to take a few pictures of most of my Castlevania shit. It wasn't easy; I had to move various furniture around & the lighting actually interferes with the quality of the images but there was nothing I can do about that. I had to take everything 1 by 1 & meticulously place it besides other things. I also had to walk several flights of stairs numerous times without dropping anything. But alas, I've accomplished what I had set out to do. Mixed in are some unofficial/unique items that I thought complimented the collection nicely. Once again sorry for the bad quality of the images, if you'd like to see something more clearer just ask & i'll take a better picture of it. Any questions just ask.

So... without further adieu...

Here is the typical stock.



^with the DS games, I decided the regular cover art was boring so I gave them custom artwork, complete with inserts & altered cartridges (along with a few other stuff.)




-- a bunch of artbooks/memorabilia --








^a bunch of promotional phone cards/stickers




(yeah, they all work)


some posters





self-explanatory




here are some doujinshi/manga I've come across over the years, along with some stuff signed by the almighty IGA himself



^that blurry brown-colored comic features Dracula eating peanuts, over & over & over


.. and that's it! Mind you I'm still waiting on several more stuff to come in from Japan, so I'll update once it all comes in.

To those that are just starting to collect: be optimistic! Back in 2000 I said to myself "I will NEVER own a Tiger Handheld Symphony, or a sealed copy of Rondo, or any other rare item." As you can see, now I own almost everything, so don't give up hope!

But if anyone decides they don't have the patience to wait for stuff to pop up on ebay, I've decided to list this collection at an exclusive Buy-It-Now price at $4,999.99!! (note: cash only, no checks)


edit: just realized there's a sticky "castlevania collection" topic in fan stuff that I have overlooked :o  I hope Jorge finds it in his heart to forgive memy collection deserves its own thread anyway xD

That's insane. That puts mine, and really any other to shame! Amazing though. How do you find all that stuff?

also, is there anything you don't have? The only thing I didn't see and maybe I missed it since there's so much, but do you have a boxed US copy of Legends? I don't think i saw one

Hey, I recognize that Kid Dracula plush.

It's always great to see your collection because it's one of the few that's bigger than my own.  Although, seeing the items you outbid me on still stings.  :'(

Thanks for taking the pics btw, I know what a pain that can be.

 ;D

Holy crap, that's a huge collection. That's awesome.

I'm pretty much funding my collection entirely with online survey money right now, so it's a slow but sure process. 
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

I don't have the US Legends, not because it's rare but because it's ridiculously overpriced all the time. I have the Japanese version & American cart itself tho, so I'm not terribly worried about buying the US box unless I see it for cheap. US Legacy of Darkness has also eluded me, and US Kid Dracula, and the Lament of Innocence special edition (not the black box version, the PAL i think). and the LoS Japanese limited edition.

It's not all sealed, I take it out & play frisbee with this stuff all the time, then put it back in the plastic/bubble wrap.


I could've had another AoS artbook (SIGNED, no less!), but I let that one slip through the cracks.. it still bothers me to this day >_<

and US Kid Dracula

Unfortunately you'll never find a US kid Dracula for the NES due to it never being ported overseas. The Gameboy one on the other hand is more likely.
