  • Oh my goodness 40 episodes of LGR Thrifts!

  • Yeah, here we are.

  • And I know the perfect way to celebrate.

  • Let's go thrifting.

  • [thrifty music plays]

  • It's a Goodwill!

  • Good, we'll go inside and get things started.

  • And it's kind of an open floor plan going on today.

  • And one of the first things I noticed [laughs] Oh Goodwill.

  • It's an outboard boat motor just sitting in a shopping cart as-is for $75.

  • All right.

  • Also in this other buggy there was a couple of Pioneer speakers that looked kinda cool.

  • CS-C9000s.

  • Though for a hundred bucks and looking pretty beat up I doubt those are moving anytime soon.

  • Over in the CDs and hey what do you know: a DOS game!

  • It's Batman Forever: The Arcade Game.

  • Did not know that came out for DOS.

  • It's not one I'm looking to add to my collection loose but hey you know: yay, DOS games!

  • Ooh what is this homedicks thing?

  • Homedics, home-whatever.

  • Aquascape CD Tower, yeah "a kaleidoscope of bubbling light."

  • That is wonderfully tacky and what is this, "missing the power chord."

  • Chord?

  • Oh Metallica is not gonna be amused.

  • Over in the glass case next to the tiki mugs and weird little fat guy with an open head

  • and bowler hats there were some Nintendo GameBoy cartridges for various systems.

  • Nothing I'm looking for but you know.

  • There it is.

  • Also in the case were more games, a plastic bird, a copy of Windows Live OneCare.

  • Mmkay.

  • And this guy right here who appears to have seen better days, with the knives stuck through his body.

  • But you know he looks comfortable enough so whatever.

  • Over in the electronics and ahh you know I'm not usually one for dial-up modems, I don't

  • have much use for them.

  • But if this was more complete I would've definitely wanted to get it.

  • This is a US Robotics Courier 2400 baud dial-up modem.

  • Oh it's neat.

  • I mean it looks neat anyway, again wouldn't really be able to do much with it.

  • Yeah I'd kinda like to get something of this style if I were to get an external modem to

  • show off or something sometime.

  • Up above here was a kind of a neat little bookshelf stereo system by Realistic.

  • Speaking of woodgrain, check out these Bose speakers!

  • I didn't catch the model but they seem to be some kind of corner speaker setup.

  • They had drivers all around, it's just a neat looking thing I thought.

  • This caught my eye as well for its circular design, look at this Harmon Kardon CD changer.

  • They way it opens up with this round lid reminds me of like a giant PlayStation 1 or something.

  • I don't know, just haven't come across a CD changer of this style on Thrifts before.

  • What is this yellowed thing with brown buttons?

  • A Take-a-Long tape player?

  • I guess a kids battery powered tape thing.

  • Yeah it felt like it weighed like nothing, hehe like I've held packs of gum that were

  • heavier than this.

  • Let's see what is this, got a Genesis Phil Collins camera here?

  • Eh no it's just some camera.

  • Ah I dunno, maybe there's something interesting about it but it's not for me, unlike this

  • Sony FD-7 FD Mavica over here.

  • So this is a nice little digital camera, I've covered these before.

  • But I don't think I've run across the FD-7 while thrifting before.

  • And no floppy disk inside, I always like to check just in case anybody's filled it up

  • with retro photos.

  • Speaking of retro, hehe got some brand new PDA screen protectors.

  • Mm, can't say I'm needing any of those but yeah.

  • Got a step-down voltage converter for electronics travel conversion so you don't blow stuff up!

  • And what in the world, look at all these still-sealed ethernet adapters, for, looks like they're all PCI.

  • That's too bad, might've grabbed one if they were ISA but nope.

  • Onto another Goodwill!

  • And you know I didn't notice until I was recording this voiceover: is that a ripoff Star Wars Lego set?

  • Wish I'd noticed when I was there, that's a little weird.

  • But anyway up above I did notice this, a Captain James T. Kirk 12-inch vinyl model kit.

  • I guess it's just a vinyl figure, it's from a company that does model kits.

  • And then checking out the toy section, certainly seems like someone was into Star Trek and

  • then, well, not anymore.

  • There were a number of random Star Trek new old stock items just hanging around.

  • Next Generation figures and a SkyBox, whatever that is.

  • Got a Stardate calendar here for 1997, aw.

  • And why do I feel that this is related, I don't know.

  • We have a Non-Sport Update, "the magazine for the discriminating collector of non-sport cards."

  • I like how they put "babe" in quotes.

  • What the heck, Bob Ross with painting hair?

  • All right so I guess there was a Bob Ross game, The Art of Chill.

  • I did not know that, what a happy little accident!

  • Speaking of little what are these tiny little books?

  • Oh they're drink coasters!

  • Yeah they're made to look like little encyclopedia volumes. Heh.

  • Speaking of strange encyclopedia-themed things, check out this lamp.

  • It's got a couple of encyclopedias and various other books, they just glued them together,

  • drilled a hole through the middle and made it a lamp.

  • I mean you know.

  • It's pretty enLIGHTening but... nyeheheeh.

  • Aw here we go, we got some electronics that for whatever reason they really catch my eye.

  • Look at that Sharp SA-X50AV receiver and that blue and red and gold on black color scheme,

  • I really like that.

  • Even that Fisher CD changer down below, I dunno.

  • It's kind of an appealing design, man: A/V stuff. It's good stuff.

  • Ooh what is this, I see retro keyboard.

  • We got a Yamaha PSR-12.

  • Actually in pretty decent shape. It was twenty dollars.

  • No power cord and ah it's just a really simple kind of piano anyway but more fascinating

  • than most I see at Goodwill.

  • Mm, so is this, augh.

  • This Pioneer stereo receiver model SX-990, I was highly tempted to grab this.

  • It was $125 though.

  • Anyway great looking machine.

  • Ooh this is interesting, it looks like this goes to maybe like a portable VCR kind of deal here.

  • Yeah, there's a cable on the back here that looks like it goes to the VCR but -- oh look there it is.

  • Yeah that has seen better days but you can see the little metal things coming out the

  • side there, it's where you put a strap, connect that, carry it around,

  • record with your camcorder, whatever.

  • Oh look at this lonely little CRT on a table over here, what is this.

  • LXI? Never heard of that.

  • And on the way out there was quite a substantial selection of someone's snow globes they dropped off.

  • Is that a Santa Yoda? Huh.

  • All sorts of fascinating things in here, look at there, there's a Blues Brothers car snow globe.

  • Never know what you'll find here.

  • All right onto another Goodwill!

  • And inside the glass case here a Star Trek 25th Anniversary collection of cards.

  • Wonder if that was donated at the last store and got sent here.

  • Anyway, didn't spend too much time with it because right behind that was this gigantic

  • Sony projection TV.

  • A somewhat newer model of this type of thing, looks like it was $150 they dropped it to $75.

  • Yeah made in 2003.

  • CRTs! Definitely.

  • And for whatever reason there were a ton just hanging around the Goodwill today.

  • I counted at least a dozen units from all sorts of companies: JVC, Sharp, RCA, Magnavox,

  • Zenith, Panasonic, Philips.

  • A couple of them were kinda decent.

  • Nothing I needed or would personally pick up but then this one caught my eye.

  • Look at this little guy, this is a GoldStar TV.

  • Lucky GoldStar, the company that later became LG.

  • And as cool as this looked it was missing the front panel and like pretty much all the

  • other ones was RF-only.

  • So yeah I don't need another color TV from this era really.

  • Although it was a dollar, still tempting.

  • As far as the newer ones though, this was the most tempting unit.

  • It was also a dollar and I think it was a 32-inch.

  • It's a Panasonic and it had RF, composite, s-video, and component.

  • I have a few Trinitrons that do this but you know, this is a pretty good TV for someone.

  • ["Jesus Christ it's Jason Bourne"]

  • Ahh look at these chairs!

  • [chuckles in chair]

  • Ah I don't know, these designs they make me happy.

  • Oh this pattern, it beckons me to live inside of it.

  • Over in the puzzles and board games, ran across something that I recognized.

  • And ah check it out: Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus: The CD-ROM Game.

  • Whatever.

  • I don't really care about the game I just wanted this package actually.

  • It's a heart-shaped box for a computer game.

  • And this one's still sealed, it comes with the cardboard cutout to make it so it can stand up.

  • The one I had was just loose, it didn't have the standing parts so I'll take it.

  • Checking out the keyboards and heheheh, well.

  • This one stood out for obvious reasons.

  • It's a pretty generic keyboard but somebody bedazzled the crap out of it.

  • Kind of impressive really.

  • Ooh what is this?

  • Check out this calculator: Sears C1, it's so blue!

  • Ah yes, I'm absolutely getting this if it's any kind of working condition.

  • Aw man. Seems the display is thoroughly screwed up.

  • An absolute shame really.

  • All right what do we got here.

  • Some floppy disks and, huh. 800K Macintosh floppy disks, looks like somebody's backup here.

  • Usually these kind of personal files don't make it out onto the sales floor so that's

  • a bit unusual.

  • All right, random electronics and what is this face?

  • It's a General Electric solid state FM/AM radio.

  • Solid state, not in great shape, but I like the look of it and check this out.

  • "Times Square Stores."

  • I always like finding old retail stickers on any kind of thing in thrift stores.

  • And you know, go figure: with all those CRT TVs this is the thing that grabs
