It doesn't HAVE to be complete with all it came with, but it would be nice. And I don't wanna pay more than $20 plus S+H for it, because the few times I've seen it for sale were prices like $79.99 and others, and that's ridiculous!!!!!

I picked up a copy with a slightly ripped sticker for very little. Only around £7, if my memory serves me right (around $15). I'm not really interested in selling it though, I'm afraid.

Just to make sure, you do mean the Japanese version, right?

If anyone's confused about this, here's a shot I took of both the Famicom and NES versions.

No idea. I don't own a Famicom or a NES import enabler cart, so I can't play the Famicom version. I just bought it for collector's interest, and I didn't expect to find another copy at that price. I don't even own a B-region NES, so I can't play my NES MetalGear.

I can't only imagine that the only difference is localisation. I've seen photos of a boxed copy, and it seems to have some kind of Japanese-exclusive art card. I don't know much about that, though.
