Time to post up some items from what is arguably one of the biggest RPGs in the video game world. Final Fantasy! Now, I can say I have never beat a whole FF game but I can’t even begin to think of how many hours I put into FF7 for the Playstation. I would get home from school and turn it right on. Here are some cool items I found for FF! A lot of cosplay stuff is available for the series which doesn’t surprise me…
A full size replica of the Gunblade from Final Fantasy XIII. This may be a full size replica but… It doesn’t turn into the sword. But, you are in luck because…
A full size replica of the Gunblade SWORD from Final Fantasy XIII! Yeah, I guess they couldn’t figure out a way to make one that would transform. Either that, or they just wanted to sell the same item twice!
This is a rare item indeed! Only 50 were made for a Nintendo Power contest back in the day and it was for the OG Final Fantasy which makes it even more rare since it was back in the “old school” days.
Here is some wording from the listing: “This awesome collectable is a must-have for the serious collector and Final Fantasy enthusiast. Only 50 Final Fantasy crystal orbs were made and distributed worldwide (Nintendo Power said the mold was broken after making the orbs). It is made of solid lead crystal. The crystal orb is etched with the legend ‘Final Fantasy’; a shield with a crossed axe and sword are etched above. This can be viewed when looking through the crystal orb. The orb has been signed by the artist, Kusak.”
Check out the rest of the pictures of the orb HERE.
Final Fantasy XII Judge Master Gabranth statue. Thing looks impressive! They had up full scale Gabranth mask, but I like the figure more. Reminds me of some Boris Vallejo artwork.
A full set of Final Fantasy figures released by Square Soft back in 1997. The person that posted this up stated it took them 5 years to piece this whole set together and I wouldn’t doubt it! There were also only 3000 of each made so take that into consideration and all the people that only bought a few hear and there, the amount of full sets in anyone’s collection must be pretty low.

Resident Evil (known as Biohazard in Japan) has some of the best merchandise / collectible stuff out there for any video game in my opinion. It is also one of my all time favorite video game series so I decided to make a post on some rare / interesting items I have found.
A Resident Evil first aid kit may come in handy if the zombies actually ever do come for us. I like everything in this auction! It is just full of AWESOME and I know I will be saying this a lot but Japanese gamers get the coolest stuff. This kit was actually a prize that people could win playing a Biohazard Pachinko Slot Machine!
How awesome is that! Unfortunatly, I could not find one for sale. 😉
These keys right here should be familiar to any old school RE fan. These are full scale reproductions (can you say “reproduction” if the item’s were never real in the first place?) of the mansion keys used in the original Resident Evil. They actually made 4 different keys and only gave away 1 key to each person that attended the 1996 Tokyo Game Show so to get all 4 was nearly imposible. Said to be the rarest RE collectible, even seeing 2 of them posted up is a hard thing to find.
Movie props! Premiere Collectibles, one of the biggest prop sellers on ebay always get their hands on the Resident Evil movie props. They have a ton of them posted up right here at Premiere Props. This one is my favorite of what is posted up now thought I am usually more of a sucker for any of the props with the Umbrella logo on them.
If a gun is used in a Resident Evil (or to be more specific, BIOHAZARD) game then they have made an Airsoft gun replica and alot of them are licensed by Capcom. Not too many games that I know of have a line of guns! Of course, as always, all the cool stuff has to be kept from us via the great blue sea. Damn you again Japan, you luck bastards!
I will close with a rant:
Another RED SYSTEM!!! WTF!!! Ok, Dreamcast puts out their rare RE version of the Dreamcast system which was the regular Dreamcast, but RED. Then I hear that a limited editions Resident Evil Xbox 360 is in the works and I got excited and guess what? They did it AGAIN! Yeah, let’s paint the system red! Wanna add a zombie on it or at least a cool RE logo? NAAAAHH! Let’s just make it RED!!! Making a red system does not make it a RE system. I guess Virtual Boy was the Resident Evil edition.

A full size replica of the Gear of War Lancer! This was an Amazon.com exclusive back when they were taking pre orders for Gears of War 2. A friend of a friend had one so I got to check one out in person and I must say, it is a pretty hefty toy!
A golden full size Lancer replica? Had no idea they made these, but I like the regular one MUCH more. What can I say, I like blood!
I am a fan of Gears of War and a fan of skate style shoes so I want these! My favorite colors are also red and black so someone buy me a pair (size 12). 🙂
Ok, this is a custom scupture and it looks great and all but… $1,300.00? Are you high? Not to bring the artist down since I make some art as well but… good luck with that.

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.

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.

Yeah, if you are into current video game at all then you obviously know what game got released today. I used to not be a fan of the Halo series but it definitely grew on me. I started with Halo 3, then played 2, and also played ODST so I am going to check out Reach for sure.
I thought I would post up some Halo items but surprisingly there is not much out there! The best things I found were some badass Custom Case Mods.
Here are my favorite current case mods I had found:
I am diggin this one since it is a nice flat looking black, but I can’t tell what the carved out logo on the top is. The guy took some good pictures but just failed to get a good shot of the top.
This one looks VERY detailed so I wish he would have taken better pictures. I like the design of this one, but I lay my system horizontal so this wouldn’t work for me. Also, what is with the attached Xbox Live camera?
This one is a sweet Halo 3 mod. I am a fan of the black with blue LED glow and this one looks well done!
As far as collecting goes the “limited” editions systems were the best items I found:
I found this sweet Halo 1 limited editions original Xbox system in mint condition which I thought was pretty badass! I know some people still play the OG Xbox, but personally I just plan on downloading Halo 1 for my 360 like I did with Halo 2.
Of course, the Halo Reach limited edition system. Pretty slick looking. I am diggin the Xbox re-design as it is but if I decided to get a new Xbox 360, I think I will go with a nice regular black one. Pretty sweet that it comes with 2 wireless controllers though!
And the “Oddball” auction…
