Odd, I was sure I'd left a comment here.Anyway, I reemmber seeing these when I was a kid, but never bothered to get them-- any money I had which might have gone towards them seemed better spent on more NES games, or Ninja Turtles figures, or other stuff in general.Still, I'm glad to see what I missed out on at the time. Truth be told, I'd like a copy of the Super Mario Bros. one, if only because it has "official" art of Peach in the same colors as the original game, before she went "all pink, all the time."
