    I have a specific question for you regarding that UPC sticker on the side of the box. I saw it in one other game (other than the obvious US NTSC versions of some SMS games like Golden Axe Warrior and Strider on the back of the box). I'm talking about Desert Demolition OG cardboard box. Is this normal? Or is it retail store based?
    I can't answer definitively (ie other titles), but in respect to Wacky Worlds, I've seen the UPC sticker (under the shrinkwrap) for all of the copies I've seen. I don't think it was retail store based.

    Kind of different, but there is some interesting stickering for sealed Canadian games. For example, sealed copies of the Canadian release of NHL All-Star Hockey have an added UPC sticker:


    But here is already a UPC on one of the sides of the box, so adding one is unnecessary


    Here is a different Canadian release sealed:


    Notice how it has that "Sega of Canada" sticker. That's really odd to me. Right below it is the original UPC printed on the artwork. BUT, what I find most interesting is the first 5 digits of the UPC. 10086 was used for US releases, whereas 69044 was used for Canadian releases. But once I opened that game, underneath was a proper Canadian barcode (69044 01216). So the sticker on top was correct because it ends in the same 01216, but its just odd and unnecessary.

    Those are the only two sealed Canadian games I've found though, and the first (the cardboard NHL one) is kind of different. Definitely Canadian but released not quite in the same time period as all of the conventional Canadian releases.

    Not quite what you asked, but figured I'd throw it out there anyway

    I guess the manual was always black and white in these kids club games? I can't think of one that I have that has a color manual. It's a real shame they started cheapening out so much on boxes and manuals....

    Math Blaster had a color manual.

    Here is a post I made on the Sega Club games:

    My copy of Math Blaster was sealed though so it doesn't show the color cover for the manual, but pictures are readily available.

    Oh very cool! I read that post a while back and forgot about it. You did great work in that thread and all your threads to be honest. I didn't realize you were the same poster.

    ^Thanks, man! I changed names awhile back as supergamboy is a reference to the Korean Mega Drive, which I've also collected extensively

    Yeah, whenever there is a topic on Genesis collecting, I try to share the knowledge I've picked up, and if someone asks a question I try to do the research and get an answer

    Awesome! Yeah, you're a great person for spending all this time helping out. I've all your stuff bookmarked and reference it fairly often. Still looking for some of the stuff in your CIB game spreadsheet. Mainly lots of missing posters and inserts. You probably don't get enough recognition for all that stuff tbh.

    Are you going to ever make a list of all the unique titles for Megadrive/Genesis from different regions? I wouldn't mind trying to collect those at some point in the future. I have quite a few Japan exclusives and I think one Australian one Daffy Duck in Hollywood I got in an eBay lot like 10 years ago.

    OK so now I'm curious about the Sega Mouse / Mega Mouse.

    Did the mouse also come in other games besides Wacky Worlds? I see that the mouse was sold by itself, which presumably never sold much that way. If it only came packed-in with Wacky Worlds, then that would probably mean that MOST of these mice that we see today, came from Wacky Worlds games???

    The Mega mouse worked in a lot of games on the Genesis and the Sega CD. I used to use it for Eye of the Beholder on Sega CD and for Nobunagas Ambition on Genesis.

    Actually here's an article that has a list of games that it worked with.

    http://segaretro.org/Sega_Mouse

    I didn't know you could use it on Shining Force CD, lmao - I need to try that.

    On the back of Eye of the Beholder it has a 'MEGA MOUSE ENHANCED' logo...

    That's how I knew to use it - Shining Force CD does not say that

    The Mega Mouse was sold as a stand alone peripheral in the US as well. Here's a pic from the article Raja linked: http://segaretro.org/File:Mega_Mouse_US_Box.jpg

    I can't think of another game that sold it as a packin though, just Wacky Worlds.

    Also, thanks molotovwars for showing all the contents! I don't think my copy has that coloring sheet/promo flyer but I've got the other bits. The depth was a hard thing for me to gauge as well, like I said my copy definitely has a bit of age to it so the box is probably a bit bigger then when it was originally released.

    So if a retro shop has a box of Sega mice... Does that mean that most of them probably came from Wacky Worlds boxes? It would seem so, unless the thing sold very much by itself, which I'd doubt...

    One random note (partially related to Ecco's question) is that the mouse pad included with Wacky Worlds is different from the mouse pad included with the stand alone peripheral. With Wacky Worlds it is solid red where as if you just bought the standalone mouse, the included mouse pad was red and black with a "Mega Mouse" logo in the middle.

    If you were to find random Sega mice in a retro shop that also had the mouse pads, you'd know where they came from based on the mouse pad.

    Cool, a store actually gave me a mouse at one point, and I never thought much about where it came from, till this thread...

    A last note, the result of a little experiment. I sold a sealed copy of this game a few weeks ago, and I was surprised that it only went for $33.00:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wacky-Worlds...084746325?rd=1

    So with the second sealed copy I had, I decided to just open it to share it with the community. But I suspected that there was a decent chance that a 100% CIB opened copy would sell for more than the sealed copy, which in fact it did for a price of $36.50:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wacky-Worlds...101011154?rd=1

    Kind of neat result. I think its just a case where buyers don't know what all is supposed to come with a CIB, but when they see it all laid out its apparent and they'll bid about the same. But that said, in the past I have sold 100% CIB copies of the game for $44.99, so in these two most recent sales, both underwhelmed against that number. But regardless we now have documented the contents from a sealed copy
