This is pretty much a mail call only week. No Game Hunting this week.
We’ll start with the games. The other Club Nintendo ‘Game & Watch Collection’ game arrived. Followed shortly by my import of Japan’s Club Nintendo Platinum Reward ‘Tingles Balloon Fight’.
Next up is the Club Nintendo Platinum Reward Mario Statue I ordered to help complete my Platinum Reward Collection.
Palutena arrived safe and sound in the mail after worries of bad packing. And finally, I spent the morning from 4 A.M. until 10 A.M. waiting in line for non other than the Dark Pit Amiibo. My first time waiting in line for an Amiibo due to it being in-store only, and it was actually quite an enjoyable experience overall. You can keep track of my Amiibo collection on it’s page.
Okay, lately I have been using Ebay to work on getting some specific stuff, but lets get this started with what I have picked up this week and was has arrived in the mail so far.
First, the pickups: First of all, a local game shop had this awesome Japanese copy of Marvel Super Heroes.
Followed bu just a few Atari 2600 games and manuals. Something called Private Eye (can’t wait to review this and see what it is), Lock ‘N’ Chase (this one’s manual is a little torn in the upper right corner) and Frogs and Flies.
Now, moving on to the Ebay arrivals. First up is a very complete in box Super Famicom Chrono Trigger, it even has all the plastic wrapping.
Game & Watch Collection 2, ordered 1 as well since I missed out on these.
And lastly, I’ve started collecting the couple of Club Nintendo Platinum Rewards I missed, here is the Pin Set.
We met with a friend we made who works at one of weekly stops. We took him to our normal places, and he showed us his (none of which I will reveal because who wants competition). At our regular places I picked up a few things. what every one else found has always and will always be up to them to post. I link to all their blogs, but they don’t do finds like me. At our first stop I picked up the neat little DS key chain that actually holds four DS games, I saw it last weekend and wished I had picked it up then. At our other normal stop I picked up the NES satellite and the game covers, this is the first time they had the NES side of the receiver.
At our game store friends stops I almost picked up Bee 52 for NES, but Futzed around not knowing what we’d find at his other stops. I found nothing else and kind of regret not grabbing it then. I may go back someday, that was a good stop even for just commons to fill out my meager collection.
