This has to be one of the most impressive auction runs for the Red Cross. User SegaAmerica has listed more than 50 incredible Sega Merchandise, Games, Promotional items and everything else related to Sega.
SEGA is running the auctions, which goes to show you the quality and rarity of these auctions. There are collectibles here that you won’t ever seen again so bid! I’m definitely keeping an eye on that Sonic clock. SEGA….we had a rough past but in the end I tip my hat to you ;).
These auctions are part of the Play For Japan campaign which is a video game industry initiative to raise money for earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan. To find more info on this initiative, and to learn how to participate, you can visit them at http://www.playforjapan.org.
There were so many auctions I honestly did not know what to showcase here. I will try to separate the items in categories to make your viewing easier. Thank you segaamerica. It’s truly an amazing thing that you are doing.
Sega of America Video Game Auctions:
The Epic Soniclock – One of a kind – Check out the story behind this one: “This clock was originally given out for free to a SEGA event attendee last year. Apparently that person wasn’t a huge fan of Sonic, and in a gesture that was probably meant to insult us, he destroyed part of the clock and then put it up on Ebay. The rest of the Sonic community was appalled, until…One of the other attendees from that same event bid on the clock – and won it. And then the story got 10x better: The winner wrote around the edges of the clock, in a personalized message to SEGA and our Sonic 4 Brand Manager Ken: “The Sonic(lock) Cycle as you truly imagined it!”For Christmas that year, we here at SEGA received a package – and within it, we got our clock back. You can check out the full blog detailing the awesome return here: http://bit.ly/h9rXDN Now, we have decided to end (or continue?) this story where it began: Ebay. We’ve upgraded the clock, adding a new “Biker-Balough” picture to the 12:00 spot, and have repaired the rest of it through large amounts of super glue and excessive strips of tape. The Soniclock has been upgraded to a new level, and by bidding on this piece of SEGA Community history, you can also help those in need in Japan!”

OFFICIAL Bayonetta Costume – $355 – “We are incredibly excited to offer this for auction. If you were at E3, Comic Con, or saw coverage of events where we had our live Bayonetta model, then you’ve seen this item in action. This is the completely original, totally custom-made, incredibly accurate and detailed Bayonetta costume. It’s truly the only one like it in the world.The costume does include the wig (and foam head) with ribbons and chains, the bodysuit, the gloves and the boots. This costume does NOT include the glasses or the guns. The bodysuit has all of the details you’d expect from an accurate representation of the character, including the round chest piece, chains on the front and back of the costume, and more.Because it was custom-made to fit our Bayonetta model, we don’t have a numbered size for it. However, you can examine the photos above and below to see the size of the bodysuit. The boots are a size 10. The wig should fit most heads. The gloves should fit most hands/arms.”
