    October & November pickups! 

    As usual I have had a busy past couple of months, some recent pickups outlined here with another post most likely next weekend!

    My lovely wife always thinks of me when she is out, she saw these and knew I did not have them so picked them up.

    25th anniversary Sonic pack, I love the fat Sonic items released in celebration of the franchise!

    I was one of the lucky few to have picked up a NES Classic Edition, luck really. I woke up the morning of release really early and checked all of the local retailers websites to see if any online orders were available and surprisingly was able to purchase with in-store pickup at my local Toys R Us. Somehow my purchase was still available at 6:00 PM that night, amazing.

    The latest set of Nintendo Hotwheels, this set was much easier to find than previous releases.

    This was on sale for less than $12.00 so why not, even given the latest New Leaf update this was worth it for the price.

    Mega post for the past month. #Amiibo #ArcadeBlock #NES #Genesis #PhantasyStar #worldofnintendo 

    I haven’t posted in a little over a month so I have quite a few items to report including multiple Arcade Block shipments, game pickups and more so please read on!

    • On the non collector front I am happy to report that my first game review was recently made available on Sega-16.com, Wonder Boy on the Sega Master System which is known to many as Adventure Island on the NES is a fantastic game and I am proud to have the review available on what has been the premier Sega fan site for over a decade! http://www.sega-16.com/2015/04/wonder-boy/
    • The audio stream has been consitently popular since I redesigned the backend to be much more reliable, we hit a new listener peak a few weeks back with a simultaneous listener count of 378 unique listeners!

     

    Last months Arcade Block included two shirts instead of the usual one, that said this was my least favorite block so far mostly due to my lack of interest in the FarCry shirt and the misc. items excluding the SF2 keychain were a bit lackluster in my opinion.

    IMG_0099Not a bad shirt in its own right but at this point I have quite a few Majora’s Mask themed shirts already.  🙂

    IMG_0131 A GameBoy themed notepad, an Atari joystick stress “ball” and a Ryu Street Fighter 2 keychain that lights up and says hadouken when pressed.

    IMG_0133A Batman Arkham Knight comic book.

     

    On the flip side this months Arcade Block stands out as being one of my favorite ones yet,

    IMG_0156This months shirt was based off of Kingdom Hearts, the Disney themed action RPG series!

    IMG_0161 A set of Pac-Man salt & pepper shakers and an Ignitor Skylander figure.

    IMG_0164 A Video Games Live audio CD from the concert series with songs from Zelda, Final Fantasy, World of Warcraft, MGS etc. and a simple 8-bit themed chest bag clip on.

    IMG_0167A full issue of Retro Videogame Magazine, I am definitely going to check this one out in digital format.

     

    While at Barnes & Noble I spotted this in the bargain bin, The Art of Blizzard Entertainment typically retails for around $50.00-$75.00 but was on sale for less than the $19.99 listed. I have been keeping an eye on this for almost two years waiting for a price drop so it didn’t take much persuading for me to pick this one up.

    IMG_0160Phantasy Star II the fantastic Sci-Fi themed RPG boxed and complete with manual and the map! I hope to get the box and manual for my copy of Phantasy Star III soon for a complete set.

    IMG_0124“Duck Tales Remastered” the remastering of the NES classic was on sale at Toys R Us and once combined with a gift card was only about $4.99!

    The final items I selected from the now closed Club Nintendo. 🙁

    IMG_0157 A Majora’s Mask puzzle that I will assemble and frame with my wife as soon as we locate an acceptable frame to place it in.

    IMG_0170And of course the Mario bros. greeting cards…. I had some final points to spend and it was either this or Nintendogs cards.
