Nothing better than waking up on a Saturday morning and seeing the latest VGA post lol. I had to replace the missing Saturday morning cartoons that we don’t have anymore! So today it just a bunch of auctions ending later today so if there’s something that catches your eye make sure to save it and come back later.
I’ve noticed some pretty cool Grand Theft Auto standees, one from Vice City and the other one from “Double Pack”. Pretty decent prices to start off but I can imagine shipping to be in the $40 mark which is quite high. I’ve always been fond of store displays because these were one of the first things you saw stepping in your local video game store. There use to be a regular follower on VGA who had a massive standee collection. Not sure what ever happened to him but he had them all displayed in his garage. Looked badass lol! Anyways, check out the two links below for the standees:
Man oh man, I got so many goodies to show you today that I’m tempted to even buy some on the spot lol. But I figure I’ll throw it up here and if they are still available at the end of the day then it was meant for me lol.
First auction I want to talk about is the ultra rare “Super Bomber Man 4” Hudson Soft Bag. I wish I could find out more about this piece, but it looks like it’s official as I don’t know why someone would single out Super Bomber Man 4. The sad thing, however, is that the seller does really give a solid back story to this item. I mean you could message him asking for more details but all he really says is this:
“This Bag come from a Hudson contest in 1996. Very RARE“
I’ve noticed many sellers in Japan don’t give much details for their items. But what I do know is that they sell VERY RARE stuff so I’m ok with that haha.
Got a quick post for this Wednesday night. Seller wickedkitty333 has a bunch of cool video game merchandise for sale. She also has two rare items in the bunch that I haven’t seen before (Mega Man Serbot Backpack and the Pokemon Mew huge plush). Both are buy-it-nows so if you’ve been waiting around for them now’s a good chance to grab em before someone else does!
Boy oh boy, did I stumble upon a bunch of cool Nintendo auctions or what? There’s a lot of cool vintage Mario stickers; the type you would get from vending machines as well as some cool Mario and Zelda toys.
There’s some unofficial items in this list today as well, but not many (ex: the Legend of Zelda beanie).
This has to be hands down one of the coolest custom creations for Super Mario.
IT’s a FREAKING model world map from Super Mario RPG?
How amazingly cool is that??
I can’t imagine how many hours was put into this model. The drive, the motivation, the love and details in this model.
I have to admit I’m incredibly impressed. Like jaw-dropping impressed. The asking price is WAY worth the time and effort into creating this piece.
Straight from the lion’s mouth:
“I am regretfully putting up for sale a one of a kind, only one in the world piece of collecting fan art/memorabilia. This is a custom made Mario rpg world map figure. As you can see the detail work on it is impeccable. I am going through the process of a move and need to clear up some space so I am going to garner interest on this piece. It would make a great center piece to any Mario rpg fans collection! Great for display, definite conversation piece, and you’ll never find another like it.I also have a full set of rpg keychains I am debating selling as they are the centerpiece of my collection.Be sure to take a look at all my other video game collectibles for sale!Measured it. 6″ X 8″ so less than a foot each way. And the tallest aspect is 4″ which is the nimbus land portion.which I think adds to how amazing this was sculpted. To have THAT detail in such a small scale is incredible to me hence the high price tag. Took many, many, many hours of scrupulous detailed sculpting to make.
*Disclaimer*: this item is merely fanart. It is not a licensed Nintendo product and I don’t claim it to be. All credit goes to Nintendo and square Enix for their wonderful creation :)))“
Alright, it’s a Friday and and I’m making a post. Yes… it’s out of the norm BUT I’m super busy tomorrow so I figured I’d do a nice TGIF post for you all :).
To my surprise there are a bunch of great auctions listed now.
Many cool vintage Nintendo auctions, some rare merchandise and store displays!
But one really cool item is this Ace Attorney Investigations DS Signed by Motohide Eshiro. If you never played Ace Attorney, well,
YOU’RE MISSING OUT!
Straight from the lion’s mouth:
“Included are are five items all signed by Ace Attorney Investigations/Gyakuten Kenji producer Motohide Eshiro at New York Comic Con 2010.
First is a special edition Gyakuten Kenji Nintendo DSi manufactured in limited quantities featuring the Blue Badger (Taiho-kun) from the Ace Attorney game series on its front. The console’s serial number has been concealed in this auction’s second photograph out of respect to the auction’s winner. The DSi was never registered through any services available by Nintendo.
Second is a Miles Edgeworth CSI Case sold in February of 2010 on Capcom USA’s online store to celebrate the North American release of Ace Attorney Investigations with the game’s logo displayed on the front of the case.
Third is the box that the Gyakuten Kenji DSi was packaged in with the game’s logo and cover art on the box’s front side, character art of Miles Edgeworth, game screenshots, and an image of the included DSi itself on the box’s back side, and character sprites of five of the game’s primary characters on one of the box’s edges.
Fourth is the game card case included with the Gyakuten Kenji DSi with the manual, game card, and all inserts included inside. Due to the fact that the game card case was not sealed upon being autographed, the case cover insert is signed.
Fifth is the game’s Japanese guide book with artwork that includes much of the game’s main cast on the book’s cover.
All items are in excellent condition and have either been displayed in protective cases or have been kept in in storage with extremely minimal use since being signed. Further details regarding the conditions of the items are included in this auction’s condition description.”
I know it’s a little odd for me to post on a Wednesday night (since those who are loyal to the VGA know we post Saturdays only!).
I admit… I screwed up. I totally forgot to make a post last Saturday!
So…… to make up for it I’m making a post tonight :).
Lo and behold, we have a SICK line-up of video game auctions. First auction is for a Street Fighter II Vinyl LP Box Set Signed by the original composers! Seller says:
“Selling here is the incredibly rare Street Fighter II Soundtrack released by Brave Wave. This is the Composer Signed Edition which is limited to 190 in the world. The edition you will receive is a low number. The vinyl limited edition box set includes a composer-signed card, four 180-gram discs pressed on orange and blue vinyl, big booklet with essays and a composer interview & sleeves with archival prints. This vinyl box set (signed edition) was sold out within minutes over a 3 day period. The Street Fighter II “The Definitive” Soundtrack vinyl is brand new and will be packaged securely.”
Pretty bad a** for a Street Fighter II collectible item. I don’t own an LP player and don’t think my older sister ever owned one! Actually wait, she did! But this would be so cool to slap onto an old music box like an LP record player and let the beast roar!
Well here’s something I don’t see every day. A cool Donkey Kong Country plush display. Not entirely certain about it’s origins, but my guess would be that these were displayed in stores? I know Kenji found one a few months ago. I think the asking price was $1000. This one’s still pricey but if you’ve been waiting for one of these now would be your best chance at the price tag of $389.99 starting bid. The display looks to be in excellent shape given it’s age so nothing to worry about there. This is what the seller had to say in the auctions description:
“You are bidding on a life size Donkey Kong Nintendo wall display poster. This wall poster is a one of a kind in this day and age, as I was unable to find any replicas or anything similar to it. It was made somewhere in the vicinity of the late 80’s or early 90’s by a company called “Colorès International” which today does not exist. It’s original purpose was a window display in my family’s old video store, to promote one of the new Donkey Kong’s. The item itself has no flaws or blemishes and hangs by his DK tie. All toes and fingers of DK are intact with no pealing or discoloring. The material used to create this DK is a very nice nylon that to this point has not shown any flaws on it. (I have attached photos of the only other thing I could find made by “Colorès International”) Feel free to ask me any questions!”
