So these have been sitting on my shelves for quite a while: several Japanese Konami games (large boxes) of which the game cartridges are missing in action. Time to find new owners for them and perhaps they can be matched to make complete sets again.

Contra
King's Valley 2 (MSX2 version)
Metal Gear
Penguin Adventure
Space Manbow

Background story: the cartridges were sent with a preview version of D4 Enterprise's One Chip MSX as a press kit, but got lost at the postal service. Ouch. I know.

With roughly 24 hours to go, two items are still without bids, so if you have a loose cartridge lying around in need of a nice box & manual... just saying Smile Oh, and combined shipping is of course possible.

I'm afraid I can't do much about that - registered mail to UK from NL doesn't come for free. Still, don't look at what you pay for shipping, look at what you pay in total. 25 eur for item + 20 shipping or 45 eur for item and free shipping is effectively the same. It just doesn't feel like it Smile

wow, it's impressive what you're getting for a Metal Gear box...

That pleasantly surprised me too, but given the value of a complete package I'd say it's worth the investment if you've only got a loose cartridge at the moment.

This surprised me too as I expect that more people (outside Japan) will have a loose European Metal Gear cartridge than a Japanese one....
