Sealed Triangle Day of The Tentacle from Tim Schafer himself. One of is last 4 remaining. He signed it and also added the DoTT promo fridge magnet and a note for me. After receiving it I sent it to Dave Grossman who also signed it and he added a neat "LucasArts insider" of DoTT game testing in pizza orgies :)

Wait, do you have direct contact with Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer???

Hi guys, I'm a young (22) french Lucasarts collector. I've always been regularly on the forum for the past 10 years but haven't really interacted with you.

Do you have imgur (or equivalent) with all the photos of your collections ? I remember one of you had one available at a time. Also I remember the Maruska photo collection some years ago, it was nice to be able to see the different versions and their content.

I'd also like to share with you my french collection with you : https://headgiantmonkey.wixsite.com/collection. Feel free to send me your French versions photos if you'd like it to be added to the website !
Solid collection!
I haven`t photographed my collections methodically yet. It`s something I want to do but it might take some time :)

I recently started collecting some of the Lucasfilm\Lucasarts classics I remember playing way back when. Alot of the inspiration came from this site as well as a few Facebook groups.
I'd say the ones I'm most proud of are Loom (with the audio cassette) and Maniac Mansion, both of which are CIB.

I'm currently on the lookout for the rare Lochness, which is Zak McKracken (CIB IBM version). Does anyone know of anyone that is willing to sell theirs or an extra they might own? If the price is right (and I know it can be up there), I'd be willing to purchase it right away. I'm tagging @jacuzi as he seems to have some pretty amazing contacts!

Welcome LargoLe !
Do you have some photos of your collection to share with us ?

Some new interestering finds in my collection (Zak McKracken Amiga, some english hint books, Loom Amiga, The Secret of Monkey Island on Amiga, ...) All my new finds are visible on my website : https://headgiantmonkey.wixsite.com/collection .

I have no red decoder for my hint books (some need one). Do you guys have extra red gel ? I'm looking for the classic "hint book" rectangle ones, and not the red glasses.

I'm actually working on getting some sort of display together for my growing albeit still small collection. I should have some pics together soon. I'm currently in the, 'protecting phase.' I'm slowly encasing my rare/valuable big boxes into clear archival bags as well as UV protector cases.

Very cool site and that is an impressive collection! I like how you've documented all your findings and have a section for trades and sales.

These are hard to find, but I have seen them pop-up now and then on eBay.

French Monkey Island 2 are not that rare but they haven't poped out on Ebay for a while... I bought the Amiga one last year, 4 or 5 copies were sold on Ebay in only one month !

Got the Macintosh version of Last Crusade on a great deal over in Norway, and have the codes viewer on it's way! So happy!

The game in box was about EUR 45,50, codes viewer EUR 32,50. Together EUR 78, which I think turns it into a fair deal with everything in nice condition.

Got these reproductions of the Horned Deity and the Atlantis Necklace from Fate of Atlantis, at a great second-hand deal, along with the enhanced CD-rom talkie version box. They were made by ArtifactDig from Spain, and are high quality resin casts, great attention to detail, very convincing and quite heavy. I have no idea if they are still making stuff, these were originally purchased in 2011. There are some info to find online, but not a lot, seems they made a Worldstone keyring, and are either going to, or were going to make an Amber Fish/Orichalcum Detector.
