The single packs of these are gonna be re-released in May & only go for $25 a piece, plus they come with hoverboards. I'd hold out for those, unless you really want the window box presentation.
English seems a bit broken, or maybe done by the computer, too.

Well I did message him, before coming here. He told me in broken english that they are authentic Neca items. I questioned him about the missing SDCC sticker and he stopped replying.

Considered reporting the item, as it seems unfair to pretend these are authentic and sell them to customers as so.
At the same time, if these are the only way to get the figures for some folk, maybe it's a necessary evil.

Can you explain this? What's going on out there?

Here's what I assume to be a bootleg copy of The Manhattan Project for GBA. I must admit it's a decent replica cover.

Interesting.
I wonder what it really is?

I don't think it is possible to emulate NES on GBA and unlikely anyone will be so crazy to port a game on another system.

Was Mutant Nightmare released on GBA? I can't find any images online of it, but it would be a bit extreme to make a fake cover of another game to house Mutant Nightmare.

Heh, so weird the listing never showed the actual game cart or any of the items inside the box. Seller listing seems oblivious to the fact it's an obvious repro.

According to Wikipedia, no. It received version for the DS, instead.

Yeah, the handheld version of Mutant Nightmare was exclusive to the DS, so far as I know. It actually had some mandatory touch-screen puzzles (stuff like turning a pipe valve with a time limit). Those puzzles were not necessarily "fun" but it was trying to take advantage of the hardware as a distinguishing feature.
