some of these collections are quite breathtaking. and its too bad that i wasnt on here more when the varda house ran into some hard times i sold a copy of drac X in pretty decent shape to a game store for like 30 bucks lol. sadly i do not have the sorts of things in this thread, and i am still damn jealous of those statues!

Got my LoI promo version! It was a lot rarer than the ten thousand CoD promos you could find on ebay.

I e-mailed the seller about that card I posted about earlier, and I still haven't received a response. It's been a week, so I don't think I'll hear back.  :-\

I'm positive that card didn't come with Vampire Killer (because I'm assuming there would be some kind of info on it SOMEWHERE), but now I'm just curious where it came from to begin with.

My humble collection

I guess that all IGA haters are rejoicing now. Have fun with your fancy Belmont Dracula and rat stealth.

Nice ^

Question, why do people buy doubles of games? In case one stops working? I would only ever do that with a system, say my 10 plus year old PS2, hopefully I'll get a spare slim one in the future, just in case.
Reluctant fighting game, Mega Man/X, Dragon Quest, and Castlevania lifelong fan.

What do I do with all these Belmonts?

I think those double games are versions from different regions (PAL and US).

This, or limited editions.

Haven't posted anything new in a while. I just got settled into the house my girlfriend and I just bought, so I figured I'd take some more pics. Here's what I've picked up since last time:



Whew...finally collected all 6 of the Dracula II cards! I absolutely love these.



This is something I was surprised to see. Kinda wish I had a floppy drive just to see how bad this port really was.



I'd never seen a Haunted Castle manual like this one before...maybe the EU manual? It came with a branded card in German.

I also have the Megadrive Fan issue with Bloodlines featured on the cover. Was kind of excited to see this, until I realized the magazine only did a 2-page preview of the game. Bleh.



I just picked this one up from being custom framed, along with another poster and 2 arcade marquees. Aaaaand I'm never doing that again...they look really nice, but it costs WAY too much. Next time I buy some posters, I think I'll just buy some pre-packaged frames and use some matting with it, or something.



The other poster. I kind of doubt its authenticity, though, because the seller re-listed another one immediately after I bought this one, and it was in perfect condition, too. Oh well. It at least looks cool hanging in the basement if nothing else.



Here are the two marquees that were also framed, along with some flyers I had. The previous owner of the Haunted Castle marquee cut the top of it pretty badly...probably to fit it in another machine. Can't really tell with the framing, though.

(BTW, how's that for ugly wall paneling? It's a big square near the closet in the basement. It was so trippy-looking and weird that I had to keep it. The vomit-red shag carpet had to go, though.)

More to come...

The Haunted Castle operator's manual looks like the one on this page: http://www.arcade-museum.com/manuals/manuals_videogame.php. Game had both an instruction manual and an operator's manual. The latter being in Japanese and English so it was probably shipped all over the world. What does the small sticker at the bottom say (is it the German card you mention)?

The card says, "Auf der Suche nach Dracula in einem verhexten schloss"

I had to laugh when I used google translate for this, just because of its simplicity. Translates to, "In Search of Dracula in a haunted castle." Kinda surprised I didn't check that out previously.

Not my entire collection of course, but my most recent acquisition! Harmony of Dissonance mint and sealed. The pictures are kinda' blurry, unfortunately.







I've been playing through the game again on my loose cartridge to celebrate!
Next up, Belmont's Revenge mint and sealed : D

That is great stuff. I've never seen the actual packaging for HoD. The white and blue overall color scheme is done tastefully along with the trio of characters.
