    Twinkle Star Sprites Boot or no boot

    The label is fake for sure, but how about the case, is it original?
    Is the game solid, or is it a boot?

    case + label = replacements

    pcbs and roms actually look legit though.

    PCB and chips are certainly legit.

    The boards themselves are good! It's just been re-cased.

    Here's another one

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/TWINKLE-STAR...-/322347608353

    Seller isn't showing the boards, is this a boot?

    I know this one is almost certain legit (that's why bid goes up quickly)

    First is probably a boot, second is probably legit. I wouldn't buy either without board pics. Second seller says "untested, all sales final, as is, no returns". Doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Bid is already at $330. Pretty sure you can get a known working legit cart for $400 on here if you posted a WTB. At this point, you're better off ordering a NeoSD anyway

    The first one is a straight-up gamble, but my gut says legit. Appears to include an original JP mini-marquee and flyer, so there's a decent chance it's a replacement label.

    I'd ask for board pics before bidding, though.

    Never seen a label like that on a legit cart. Just saying.

    Looks like the first one is indeed boot and some sucker paid $300 for it

    I believe it was relisted with the boards' images and you could see the window on 1 rom chip.

    I bid the second 1 slightly under $400 and still got outbid.

    The MVS markets have gone the way of AES as well, both Pulstar and TSS are fetching north of $300 and there's o point of return. I recently got Blazing Star for slightly above $100 and consider myself getting one of last few at this price point, it's only going up, not down.

    Everything is fucked but the mass produced games/low demand titles. Best to just pick up a NeoSD at this point.
