What was the Mega Drive like in Brazil before TecToy? Mass piracy/imports? Megavision and Bomboy? Other unlicensed games?

The only unlicensed games from this region that I can think on are Truco '96 and TC 2000, both made by Miky S.R.L. (which is really just a guy with some occasional external help for some things). I've also heard that unlicensed Megaman X3 was made by some Brazillian guy but I'm not sure about this. Otherwise, yeah, it's pretty much non-existent, unless you consider the occasional hack of some sports game or the shitload of pirates of Russian and Chinese unlicensed games =P
EDIT: as I post this the TC 2000 page isn't made... Somebody should make it but I feel lazy
EDIT 2: bawwww, wiki tags don't take into account Sega Retro =(

Does someone in Brazil (or outside, but who knows =P ) have an original copy of Bomboy/Explosion Kid they would be willing to donate for dumps?
Also not on the subject of pirates: In continuum I know the following TecToy games are undumped; if anyone has them and would like to donate them for dumping, please do:
- Andre Agassi Tennis
- International Superstar Soccer
- Mortal Kombat 3
- Sega Top 10 — we have the version labelled 10 Super Jogos but not the version labelled Sega Top 10
- Sport Games — this one is marked as a bad dump but IDK why — scour the no-intro forums and you'll find an explanation from ElBarto
- Virtua Fighter 2

Piracy? Only consoles I believe, all the cartridges (except for a few ones) were pretty much original copies. I still have some pirates of EarthWorm Jim 2, Sonic & Knuckles, Sonic 6 (Yeah, that Mario hack :P), and Mortal Kombat 2.
After the TecToy thing it was easier to get original games, I remember a TV program called "Charoná" that was aimed at kids from schools in the capital that aired tons and tons of AoStH episodes. I also remember a guy with a giant Sonic Costume in that program :P
Also, near my house in a neighborhood called "Malvin" there was a videoclub store called "Gufo" that had TONS and TONS of Mega Drive games, I saw the Mega CD for the first time in that place. We all know that the Mega CD was kinda expensive for a kid after all :P... I even remember walls covered by Mega Drive games without their box, so many cartridges.
So yeah, that's was my childhood :P, playing some Mortal Kombat II, Sonic 3 and some other games on my Mega Drive 2 (Strangely looking exactly the same as a Japanese one) and the Mega Drive III (the one with the led in the middle, and black cart cover thing, along with a NTSC-Pal switch bellow the console) on a friend's house.

Most if not all are the same as the US version but you never know if there might be some newer rev in some of them.
