Well, I posted that I had won 12 UK Official Sega Saturn magazines last week.

There seems to be a problem.

The shipping for 1 magazine is ?6.5, but the seller mentioned that he would combine shipping when you bought more than 1 item.

So when I check out, I get over ?80 on shipping charges.

You'd think, no problem. Just send him a message....

Well, I have sent him 5 or 6 messages and emails about this, and he simply doesn't answer me. :angry:

Not sure what the problem is but I noticed a couple of other people mentioned this in his feedback, although not that many.

The thing is that I'm absolutely not going to pay ?80 for shipping a couple of magazines when I've got a parcel on the way with 2 Japanese Saturns, 1 Japanese Dreamcast, a PC-Engine arcade stick, a Neo-Geo AES original stick, a Saturn Virtua Stick, 4 GBA's and a whole bunch of Japanese retro games, all for ?55!

So it looks like I won't be getting these mags... I'm even a bit scared about him complaining about me to e-bay, claiming I'm a non-payer. :(

I do have a mention on the items, that I sent him an email asking for the price on the 19th and the 22nd, so I hope they will understand it's not my fault. <_<

Allright, a small update on the situation.

I just got a reply with the new shipping price. Huray :lol:

Now the only problem is that my paypal account is acting up and refusing to send him the money, even though I know for sure that my Visa is perfectly fine.

Hopefully I'll be able to pay with an international bank to bank transfer or otherwise I will have another major probem... :cry:

Up for auction is the Starfox 64 Promotional VHS Videocassette. This video was mailed to Nintendo Power magazine subscribers in 1997 to promote the release of Nintendo's new game Starfox 64 and the Rumble Pak accessory for the Nintendo 64 videogame system. The video divulges information about game and the Rumble Pak through a clever sequence where spies from Sega and Sony kidnap Nintendo representatives and pump them for information. This video would make a nice addition to any Nintendo collection. All components included in this auction are listed below with a rating of their condition out of 10 with 10 being the highest:

* Box (8/10 no rips or bent sides, some wear around edges from handling/opening the box)

* Videocassette (9/10 plays perfectly with high-quality video and sound)

Well, seems like I won't be getting those magazines after all.

He doesn't reply to any of my messages, even though I paid for everything.

I even sent a complaint to paypal, but he doesn't seem to be replying to that either. :lol:

Thanks to Pulstar over at UG forwarding me the auction.

Now lets hope this transaction goes as it's supposed to go. :P

Looks like the paypal claim worked after all.

Received my first batch of 12 Official Sega Saturn Magazines this morning.

Couple that with the 15 that should be underway right now and the 3 that a friend of mine is going to ship me next month or so we're coming close to a complete collection. :)

The only ones I'm missing are 8,9,24 and 35 so if any of you have these and would like to donate them. You're very welcome.

I've been scanning the covers this afternoon, but some are in pretty bad shape, so they require major touchup work, especially the covers.

But don't worry, the releases will start rolling out, hopefully starting again next week.

Just won 2 separate auctions for 5 issues each of the Official DreamCast Magazine from the UK.

Not sure how many mags were released at the time, but what I do know is that Ed lomas from the glorydays of CVG and Official Sega Saturn Magazine and Alex Huhtala and Tom Guise from the best years of CVG worked on this magazine, among others. :w00t:

I only had a couple of issues in pretty bad condition, but if things keep going like they are, that will surely change in the next couple of months.

The issues are: 7, 8, 9, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20 & 21

Issue 24 has just arrived!

It was a tricky one, as I had only seen this issue once before on sale.

But as you can see it's on the bottom of this pile of 3 magazines, so unless you know exactly what you're looking for you could think that the bottom one was issue 4 with Panzer DragoonZwei on it instead of Issue 24 with Panzer Dragoon Saga as they look much alike frow what you can only see in this picture. :cat:
