Famicom Bootleg Carts Collection 1: Singlecarts (Whirlwind Manu, NTDEC, Kaiser, etc.) [25.12.2015]

Hello everyone!
There was a really huge delay between making new posts on my blog, my apologies there! Real life stuff kept me busy from doing this.
And since it's already the end of the year, and the Christmas holidays for most people abroad, as well as there'll be New Year holidays soon, I decided to bring you the photos of my entire collection of Famicom pirate carts. ;)

Please, if you use my photos, don't forget to link to the original source. :P

I'll start with Whirlwind Manu bootleg carts (LA??-LH??? series), as well as NTDEC singlecarts, Kaiser singlecarts, and other early bootleg carts, that were released possibly by the aforementioned companies, and they are from end 80s-early 90s.
So, let's start this up. :)

UPDATE: (26.12.2015) I forgot to add Datsugoku (P.O.W) cartridge earlier, even though I actually have it.
