My fine arts professor said it best "Art is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it"

That being said, I lost the boxes, but I still have the "bullitin board" poster, manual, and codesheet for Maniac Mansion and the codesheet, instruction/hintbook, and newspaper from Zak McKracken. As collectors, how much would these rare items be to you? Hehehehe

Your art professor does not know what he is talking about. Art is in the eye of the beholder. But if you teacher is just talking about $$$ vaule then he is right.

Yeah - he was talking just $$$ value. Not sentimental/cultural value. Just money.

Ohh, OK. Then I say DITO.

To any seasoned collector of LucasArts, or even the whole adventure game genre, my collection is worth mucho peseta. I have all games, in original boxes, complete with all the contents: including the Zak newspaper, the Loom audio drama and the Maniac Mansion poster. Beat that - hint, you can if you own the 3-sided DOTT box. Oh how I want it...

Wow LucasT, I envy you :) Somehow I hope to get there someday too :) Of original adventures I now have them all in original box and perfect state with the exception of Monkey Island 2 (ouch), Loom, Zak and Maniac

My most recent game aquired in original box is Grim Fandango which I bought sealed from a Swede and FoA and Indy Desktop which I got from LucasArts' Company store :)

Anyway I keep the collecting up, definitly now I order a creditcard ;D

I'm also into collecting the collection archives, as well as american (lucasarts volumes), the united kingdom ones (MI Bounty Pack) and German's (MI Collection, Indy Adventure Kit and Lucas Zehn Adventures)

Aye and I also wanna get the dvd package version of Sam&DoTT, Grim and MI3 sometime :) But they're last on the list of priority cause they're prolly easiest to get nowadays =]

Ben, too bad if you had the boxes, I wouldve bought them from ya =]

I have the 256 colour talkie version of Loom. I'm willing to sell it for ninety dollars US.

Carl, boxed? :) Condition? :) All manuals and ingrediants as new? :)

Ooh! I've played that version.
I barely remember it, but I recall that I rented it from the video store. Weird, huh?

I want the lucasarts The Adventurer magazines and will pay big $$$ for em.

I want that talkie Loom, but seeing as I already have one, only with a non-recoverable scratched CD, I'll just wait until they re-release it, or those warez sites finally get it together and start uploading wuality games instead of a cracked version of Half-Life stripped of all sound, with all the weapons modes relaced by the crowbar.

I want the talkie CD of Loom too, but on Ebay the only people who sell it are those who sell it in original box, so some idiots put it up to $45. AndrewL, I have the VERY FIRST ADVENTURER! Yeah Baby! Yours for 20.

Sorry Trap, but this sort of thing shouldn't be encouraged when the products are still on the market.
