Mario Makes Bank!

Mario Makes Bank!

This Dr. Mario coin bank is one of the nicest Dr. Mario accessories I've seen.  And it is musical!  There isn't a large amount of merchandise floating around out there for the game, so this could definitely be the focal point for a tried and true Dr Mario fan's collection.  I really wish they had made a replica of Mario's degree from becoming a doctor as a promo item, that would have been great!  He does have a PHD.....right?  Anyhow, there were a few other banks currently on the bay that caught my attention.

-Donkey Kong Arcade Bank

-Super Mario Bank

-Mario Kart in the 1940's?: Let your imaginations soar...

-Sonic on a Toilet

-Halo Spartan Bank

-Nina from Tekken:  Nothing like a bust of a chick with a vacant stare and no arms.

 

 

Nintendo World Championship 1990 Winner’s Trophy

Nintendo World Championship 1990 Winner’s Trophy

None too often does an item come along that signifies such an illustrious part of video gaming history as this 1990 Nintendo World Championship trophy.  Sure, it isn't in the greatest shape, but can you imagine how many friends/potential girlfriends/boyfriends you could get just walking down the street holding this baby?  My wife just replied to this with the answer 'none,' but I would love nothing more than for someone to snap up this beauty and prove her wrong!  From the seller:  "This is the Nintendo World Championships Trophy from 1990 given to the Atlanta Champion in the age category 11&under.  Bought this trophy directly from Jeremy Tomashek who is the original owner and winner."  Best offer option is available.

Acclaim ‘Prototype’ Boxes

Acclaim (+ LJN) is a 3rd party publisher for the original Nintendo who seemed to have an affinity for showcasing new and upcoming games at CES in the form of mock up box art.  I would attribute this to the fact that Acclaim opted to manufacture their own boxes, manuals and carts rather than pay Nintendo the privilege of doing it for them.  It was likely easy and relatively low cost for them to run a small print of boxes for their booths at CES and other electronic expos.  A small amount of these 'prototype' boxes have survived through the years and have made their way into collector's hands.  While some of their covers appear identical (or have one or two small revisions) to the retail release, the main tell of these boxes are the blank backs.  The most interesting ones, however, are radically different than the final release and can offer insight into how the original box art concept changes over time and becomes the final product that winds up on store shelves.  Right now, there are a few of those boxes up on ebay, for a rather high BIN (though there is a best offer option)

TESTED Blockbuster World Video Game Championships II Sega Genesis Cartridge EBK

Blockbuster World Video Game Championships II Sega Genesis Sells

I love seeing this cart show up.

If you've never heard of the game, its kinda rare. As of three years ago, less than five copies have been confirmed to exist, with three of them passing through the hands of our own Nicola. Not sure what the count on them is now. If you have any luck finding one of these in the wild, let me know next time you go to a Casino, as I'd like to tag along on your luck. If you like casino games, we recommend that you visit this website, although it’s in Norwegian

Apparently, in 1995 Blockbuster organized their second Video Game Championship. There were two categories, up to 13 and over 14 years old. You also had to choose to compete on the SNES or Genesis. From June 14th to July 9th there was a Store Championship Competition, then the WVGC-Finals. Each store had to award a Store Champions with a prize of free rentals for the next two years (two games a month).

The best eleven players then won a trip to San Francisco for the final fight in August, inside the GamePro (gaming magazine) HQ.

For SNES, Rare built the well known Donkey Kong Competition Edition cart. For Genesis, Acclaim made this cart. Unlike the DK cart however, this cart could not be won, nor bought. Store owners were ordered to destroy the cart after the competition. Not surprisingly however, that didn't always happen.

The last copy (that I remember), went for a final price of $2,068.05. Since then there has been others listed, including one for $50,000. Recently ShopGoodwill had one sell in a lot for an absurd amount. However, it appears it ended up unpaid and was relisted on eBay.

Final price ended up at $2,050.00.

Cookie n’ Cake

Cookie n’ Cake

Judging by the starting picture of this listing for a Crash Bandicoot Cookie Jar, it appears that this is actually more of a torture device from Saw than a friendly Crash-stuck-to-the-front-of-a-rocket....would you like to play a game?  It inspired me to want to feature some of the cool video game related cookie jars that are out there, but alas...the only other one I see up for auction currently is a Portal Companion Cube.

One of the Rarest NES Games ever made! Only 150 made!

Own a piece of Nintendo history!  I was lucky enough to win one of the coveted Capcom Promo Kits for Ducktales Remastered by entering their singing contest!  I'm a huge DuckTales and Nintendo fan, but I'm by no means a collector and I feel like this bit of Nintendo history should go to someone who has a better collection!

Only 150 of these kits were made, making them one of the rarest official Nintendo games ever made! Capcom created these gold carts with the original DuckTales game and new cart art.  It comes in an awesome metal lunchbox filled with real shredded money and various inserts Capcom created. This is number 81/150!

Cigars, Zelda Bling & More

Cigars, Zelda Bling & More

It surprises me sometimes, even in the 90's, that Nintendo would put their logo on something as odd as a Cigar cutter.  Obviously, they were promoting Conker's Bad Fur Day, a game that was definitely not made with kids in mind, but with all the anti-tobacco initiatives and accusations that the companies were targeting children, you would think they would have taken on a bit of a different approach.  There aren't any currently listed, but they even had Nintendo brand cigars that were handed out as a promotion (yes, they were actual cigars--I bought two and shipped them to a friend who proceeded to be silly and used them....'very stale and cheap' I think were his words.)  I'm super confused by these Pokemon Cigar Bands as well...I kind of doubt they are licensed anyhow.  Not to be outdone, Sony has their own Cigar cutter and Match Set....

 

Zelda Link to the Past Pendant:  Some serious bling, it looks like this used to be sold at Hot Topic?  What a nifty necklace!  With all the Zelda merchandise going crazy lately, I figured I might as well feature something a little oddball.

Nintendo M3 ROB Store Display:  This is the cream of the crop as far as the M Series goes...very hard to find, this looks to be the third of these that has been auctioned in recent memory.

Gameboy Retail Flip Rack:  These are one of the few store displays I remember from Ames...oh how I miss Ames.

Deluxe GameBoy Kiosk:  One of the nicest GB Kiosks I have seen...they sure did make a lot of different ones!

Some U-G-L-Y Merch

Some U-G-L-Y Merch

Sometimes an item comes up for sale that just....there are no proper words to describe this thing.  The seller actually has some interesting Sonic, Mario and Pokemon merch up for sale, most notably for me is this 10th Anniversary Sonic Coin & CD Pack.

 

 

-6 1990 Mario Birthday Party Hats

-Donkey Kong Country Exposed VHS:  I've never seen one with the Sears/Funtronics logo...I'm assuming it's the same VHS that was sent to everyone with a Nintendo Power subscription, but a neat looking variant.

-Lenticular Pokemon Christmas Cards:  Tis the Season!

-Super Punch-Out!! Promo Button

-Lenticular Mario 64 Watch:  This was for sale via the Nintendo Power Catalog

-Zelda a Link Between Worlds 3DS Standee:  It's crazy to see one of these at a low starting bid...everyone always wants too much!
