I found a scan of this online but hated how you had to click each image to see the pages so I made a pdf. These older issues are expensive to buy so I thought I would share the pdf I converted. 

 

EDIT: High resolution version can be downloaded here:

I used the videogameMM one for a long time back when completing my first Mario Keshi sets.

Good on you saving it in a PDF like this!

Badass dude, glad my suggestion worked! You're doing a good thing cataloging one of these. So many issues that would be nice to own or have a file as reference. It's a start at least.

I would totally pay for em in pdf form if they were made available by mandarake.

For now I am trying to snag the cheaper old issues and hopefully dig around yahoo.jp for some scans of the other ones. I am sure some Japanese collectors have em scanned somewhere.

I got motivated when you mentioned the site was down for a bit at one point.

 

I am getting it printed and binded along with a regular kinkeshi checklist pdf I made using the lists from http://www.din.or.jp...emia/index.html . I prefer my reference materials to be physical.

I am almost sure this is already here somewhere (or someone already owns it) but even though I dont have a scanner, I can get my hands on one and scan my copy of Comp-REX Magazine Vol 1 (I had it signed by Miyakoshi-san, Director of Mandarake Microkan during my last trip to Japan).

i have like 2 older ones coming in the mail this month. I forget which numbers though. 

They are amazing resources and it's a shame there are no official digital versions. It's stupid to pay like $80 for an old zine.

Yeah Mandarakes print numbers on the first few were a lot lower than what they are now, they didn't think they would sell as many or would be as popular as they actually we're. They are prized by collectors, and don't pop up often for sale.

I have #2,5-9.
