Hi everyone, I just wanted to introduce myself here and possibly gain some collecting insight. My tag is Enneielle,I play smash 64 competitively and recently decided to start collecting nintendo 64 products. I'm mostly into controllers but eventually I would also like to collect the 20-30 CIB games that I actually like for the n64. I'll post my small collection once my ebay pick ups arrive :)

I was wondering what people who live in Canada think about buying off ebay because of how low the Canadian dollar has become. Are you waiting to make purchases in the hopes that it will rise? I know for myself calculating the extra 10-15 dollars on boxed controllers just for conversion fees really pushes me to wait for a great deal before I buy.

Also what is considered to be a 'good price' on boxed 64 controllers these days? Mostly looking to complete an original 8 NA collection, while picking up any Japanese boxed controller that I think is a decent price (so far I've got one green for 30 CAD and a red for 40 CAD).

hey, im in Canada too and I do calculate the exchange rate, you have too. otherwise you'll pay way over the top for everything. Try sourcing locally, it might end up cheaper or sometimes people are just plain dumb and ask ebay price + 50%. that's when ebay comes to mind or this very forum.

Prices for boxed is all over the place because of what it might include or not. it's also different for each color.

have fun and don't loose your mind (read wallet) over useless stuff, start with what you really really what/matters to you instead of being all over the place.

Hello everyone! I want to add one controller that has a proper working thumbstick to my collection to use... Which one would you guys recommend me to go for? Brand/colour/gc or N64 mechanism? I am considering to get an orange or red one...

I already have the Grey and black solid ones but the former owner gave a little top much love to Both thumbsticks lol!

There's a few options out there. Replacement thumbsticks are pretty meh. I would rather use a worn out thumbstick personally. The ebay ones are just frustrating if you have to do any fine movement in a game.

I had better results with the Kitch Bent Gears replacement gears, but they take some work and don't make a stick "like new" but I would say they rewind the clock a bit.

And of course there's Steelsticks64 (drool), but I don't think Linus is taking new orders yet. http://steelsticks64.com

There's a TON of stick chat here: http://s9.zetaboards.com/Nintendo_64_Fo ... ic/7360571

I agree the replacement sticks are pretty bad or at least the one I tried was but I wasn't expecting much for $8. I have a SteelStick from Linus and it is pretty amazing. I would try to look for maybe a new N64 controller but they are pricey.
