A few rare Nintedo items

/ 8 years ago

Super Nintendo Control Deck Tester. This was posted up by someone who supposedly used to work for Nintendo and he states that this is used for warranty repair checks. Sounds legit to me though just by looking at this it screams SNES. Not sure anyone would have a use for this other that collection but still a cool item and I know I am a fan of seeing gaming stuff that I have never seen before.

This is not as rare but good luck finding one in the US. This iss the Nintendo 64DD, a disc drive that attached to the N64 for proprietary 64 MB magnetic disks for expanded data storage. This was never released in the US and even in Japan few games were released for it. One game to make note of is Mario Artist.

Mario Artist was pretty much an updated version of Mario Paint for the SNES. They also released some “Pocket Monster” titles for the N64 64DD which you may better know as Pokemon.

And here we have a Game Boy Prototype cart for Final Fantasy 2. I have seen a few prototype carts up for auction but what I like about this one is that their are actually some differences between the prototype and the retail version and he shows this in the auction.

Hope you are diggin the rare Nintendo posts. I am going to try and switch things up all the time and make sure to touch on a little bit of all things, old school and new.

The MAN in blue…

/ 8 years ago

My favorite video game character (other than Mario) has to be Mega Man! The tiny little blue powerhouse that steals the powers from his defeated enemies. Such an awesome character trait that I am sure it inspired Mortal Kombat’s Shang Tsung’s “Soul Stealing” power. I had always rocked some Rock Man all the way from NES to the XBLA Arcade titles and I am excited about Mega Man Universe (see further into the post for details).

PC Mega Man??? Yeah, I did not know that Mega Man 1 came out for the PC. In fact, it didn’t. This is a real Mega Man game, but is not a port of the NES classic. I have never played it but read it is pretty bad. They also released a similar type of title for Mega Man 3 for the PC but skipped making a horrible Mega Man 2 for some reason.

What post could be complete without a lot of some sort! This one is of the OG 6 with boxes. The price isn’t that bad (for now) seeing as they are all in the boxes.

I posted this one up because I had never seen this piece of artwork for Mega Man 3. That is because it is the Australian release. Looks QUITE a bit different than the US version. I don’t know which one I dig more.

MEGA MAN! MEGA MAN! Chant it from the “bleachers” with this Foam Mega Buster! Given out at San Diego Comic Con 2010 to promote Mega Man Universe which is coming out for XBLA and PSN.

Here is a video for Mega Man universe showing game play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pptzMQvpQPQ

The full game also has a HUGE level builder which I am sure will be the big selling point of the game.

Oddball:

What can I say? I like oddball eBay items! Here are a couple Mega Man ones I found and “like” so I thought I would post em’.

How perfect is this? “E” Energy Tank Energy Drink! PERFECT! The price? Not so much… Damn you Japan and all your awesome exclusives!

Ok, the Halo Cosplay outfit was actually cool looking but this? Really? Not that this would make it any less horrible but it doesn’t even have a helmet! It looks like a big blue Nutcracker costume.
