Value My NGPC Collection

They are all Mint UK Clamshell versions.

Shanghai Mini (very rare I think)

Metal Slug 1 and 2

Match of the Millenium

Fatal Fury

Puyo Pop

Mystery Bonus (casino game)

The Last Blade

Crush Roller

Puzzle Link

Card Fighters (Capcom Version)

Card Fighters (SNK Version)

Biomotor Unitron

Pac-Man

Neo Turf Masters

Dark Arms

Dive Alert (Becky's Version)

Cheers!

Sadly, none of those games are particularly rare, but boxed, just about any UK NGPC title can fetch a decent price. You're right in that Shanghai mini is uncommon, but it got a GBA release so is probably devalued due to that. The Last Blade is a late release and also quite uncommon, along with Cool Boarders. Another uncommon title might have included Gals Fighters, but you don't seem to have that.

The only UK releases I know that are "rare" are Faselei and Evolution. Also Cotton is quite rare I think, as I've only seen a couple.

If those games are boxed, you should get at least a fiver for each, apart from Fatal Fury, as that's the worst of all the NGPC fighters (it isn't bad, but it offers nothing that isnt in one of the other games, of which there are many as we all know - unless you're an FF completist). Some that you should sell for more are Metal Slug 2, Dark Arms, Cool Boarders, Dive Alert, Shanghai Mini and The Last Blade.

Your best bet is to stick them all on eBay on a full length auction with a starting bid of £1, but this is the important bit - if they're boxed and in good nick, take very good, detailed pictures of the packaging. People may give you decent money for them provided you have the pictures.

That's pretty amazing as I picked up Evolution and Dive Alert (Matt version) on BOGOF for £10 from Gamestation a couple of years back. Also got a Japanese Cotton from there too but that was more expensive

That's the thing, "rare" is such a relative term. Faselei used to fetch £100 once upon a time, just like Evolution, but these days they'd never fetch that price. I think the problem is that the "rare" NGPC titles aren't the fighting games, they're the other titles - but these have been bettered by later machines such as the GBA, DS and PSP.

So whereas there is still no fighting game on a handheld to challenge Match of the Millennium (in my eyes) there's Metal Slug Advance and no shortage of RPGs - but Match of the Millennium is a relatively easy to get hold of title.

Your games of notable value (pretty much already been summed up):

Cool Borders

Shanghai Mini

Metal Slug 2

Match of the Millenium

The Last Blade

Card Fighters (Capcom Version)

Card Fighters (SNK Version)

Dive Alert (Becky's Version)

The rest probably aren't worth listing in auction format if you're heading to eBay. I would do Buy It Now with Best Offer if 'twere me. I've stuck the ones that I would expect to fetch most in bold. You might get over 30 quid for them, as they don't come up too often. Card Fighters Clash has dropped somewhat in value recently. I'm struggling to shift a Capcom copy.

Dive Alert Becky's version is more rare that the other one, but sadly not more desirable. I used to manage the SNK Account for the Euro Dreamcast games and James at SNK UK told me they had ordered far less of this version. He used to also give me lots of free SNK goodies. B)

I sold a Mint UK SNK Cardfighters about a year ago on the Neo Geo Forums for £50. Metal Slug 2nd, MotM, and The Last Blade should also fetch you around the £20 - £30 mark. Make sure you sell to the americans as they are crazy for the clamshell packaging.

I'd be interested in these if you give them a fair price and they are complete/uk/clams. I have all the others you have there, except one of the cardfighters but I can't remember which one I have :wub:

Would like to try cool borders/puzzle link on my newly frontlit ngpc

Exactly, they never managed to get anything released but went through all the motions, there was a Euro version of KOF 98 ready for release too :wub: .

Yep, frontlit using a GBA SP.

It wasn't too hard if you take your time, and have any soldering ability (i'm a bit rubbish at soldering!)

All you need is a resistor and some small pieces of wire and obviously the 2 consoles (not a late rear lit gba sp!)

Tool wise, you need a small phillips screw driver and a really sharp hobby knife / scalpel and a soldering iron.

The trickiest bits are probably soldering the resistor to the board of the NGPC and removing the front lit screen from the GBA (it feel delicate and the adhesive is strong, plus the tutorial says that touching it leaves finger prints...)

Followed a tutorial pdf that I can't find online now (but some googling should bring it up).

I didn't bother with a switch or anything so the light is on when the console is on.

Quality wise, the colours on the screen look a little washed out (light a GBA SP!) and the SP screen is slightly shorter so there is a 2 or 3mm silver bar at the bottom of the screen - though you can't really see this when it's on.

Also, if you want a proper decent job, buy a can of air duster as I have a really irritating piece of dust behind my screen!

Not used it enough to tell about the battery life tbh as I did the conversion just a bit before Christmas and have bought a couple of games that have stopped me playing the ngpc...

I have 3 ngpcs and the one I modified was bought specifically to be modified.

I think there was a youtube video tutorial that I used to double check something too.

I'lll take some pics when i'm back at home / when I find it. I've been replacing my bathroom so my house resembles a battleground... :)

Was this the pdf?

Well done that man, that's exactly the PDF I used.

also, if you do it carefully, you can close the GBA SP up and have an SP with no light that still works afterwards (I did this, though it's a bit useless not having a light and might be heading to eBay and sold as spares...)

In Weatherspoons after work back in '99. Back when a beer and burger was less than £5.

Slightly off topic but it's good to see how Wetherspoons is fighting inflation, a beer and burger still costing less than a fiver some ten years later. :ph34r:
