Here are some things I got in April of 2012! :D

I treated myself to a vacation. My first real vacation since I've started working for Mad Catz. I was excited because my daughter came along with me to Tokyo!


Seeing this at Yodobashi Akiba in Akihabara made me so happy! :D


Street Fighter X Tekken ver. Kuro capsule toy!


Square Enix Dragon Quest 25th Anniversary Action Figure


25th Anniversary Metal Gear shirt by UNIQLO for my brother!


Team Mad Catz's Daigo "THE BEAST" Umehara, now a Amazon best selling author!


These are getting harder to find, so I couldn't pass this one up.


Street Fighter X Tekken Toro & Kuro plushies along with the new SFXTK artbook!


Some reading material! TEKKEN TAG 2 & TEKKEN Blood Vengeance artbook, new ARCADIA Magazine issue and SSFIV:AE Ver. 2012 mook.


NINTEN from MOTHER!

and lastly...


Celebrated my 30th birthday. Did they really have to put 30 candles?!


Let's have a good MAY!

Happy Birthday Markman!

Will I get to meet you again at Dreamhack Summer, sir :)?

Cross posting from the shmups forum.

Pretty good condition, and only about $60 USD shipped.

Crappy iPhone pic:



The comic is Jericho, one of my absolute favorite shows. It's the collection of the six comics that continue the story after the show was canceled. Can't wait to start reading this baby.

I added Valkyrie Profile to get to $25 for free shipping. Been wanting it since it came out, and figured this was the perfect time to get it.

MarkMan you are very young. Nothing to feel old, go on, enjoy your birthday! ;)

Here the last pick up I got:

FINALLY.

The Witcher 2 Assasins ok Kings Enhanced Edition




Now I just would like to add this:

Since my Laptop is only good to support indie devs and smaller games, I want to thank all PC Gamers that bought and supported this game to make it possible on 360. I did my part with Dark Souls and I'm glad to know that soon, PC Gamers will also be able to enjoy that fantastic game.

Thank you all.

I am definitely interested in that Jericho comic!

If by real you mean hand drawn then no, only his signature

The art itself is silk screen.

Real hand drawn art goes for much much higher than I can afford :*(
Still pretty awesome. Sometimes I prefer looking at the concept art Amano makes over the actual games!

What other pieces do you have? A FFVII collection or just a Tifa focused collection?

Picked up a dedicated single monitor Nintendo Playchoice 10 this weekend. Had some pretty rare carts in it that I was able to sell on eBay and make all my money back. Plus I have Contra, Mike Tyson's punch out, excite bike, and Super Mario Bros 1 and 3 coming this week to put in it.

My second favorite cab in my arcade after my Donkey Kong.

I have this, this, and this. I know there's also a Sephiroth one I haven't been able to get.

There's a few more I can't think of at this moment that I haven't able to get since they rarely pops up.

Woke up to find most of this lot hanging out on my front porch. My first Nendoroid as I've been buying less figures in recent years and selling off, giving away or binning a lot of my existing collection. Found the MegaDrive VMU at half the price they usually command so caved. It was listed as second hand but inside the box everything is brand new and untouched, still had the tab in the battery slot. Very nice.

Pandora's Tower arrived this evening by way of big bearded bloke on a Harley Davidson. Good old Australia Post had left it at his place a few blocks away - second time they've done that in a fortnight so they'll be on the end of a filthy phonecall tomorrow. Answering the door when it's dark to a huge bikie holding a package was kind of surprising and after I had unpuckered my asshole I thanked the guy who turned out to be a super nice dude and was very apologetic about the matter even though it wasn't his fault and he had gone out of his way to bring it over. Contrary to what the local media would have you believe, I've now seen that not all bikers are selling drugs to kids at playgrounds and shooting at innocent people in the street to get at rival gangs. Who would of thought?

I picked up one of these on the cheap for less than the used price of the standard version. I love the book. Its thick and detailed. The game is pretty good too. :D I even made an unboxing of it here if anyone still cares about this game. :3

I saw your post in the other thread, and ordered one for myself. Stupid jerks were supposed to email me when they came back in stock. I signed up for email notifications in February.
Yeah, I managed to hear about the restocks through youtube of all places. Some user replied to an old-ass post I made on one of ExitPlanetDust's videos saying they were back in stock. I would have no idea they were otherwise.

Just picked up a Sony Xperia Play for $1! AT&T was running a deal where if you upgrade your line you get the phone for $1. I didn't upgrade my line, I had my friend who runs our mobile division upgrade 1 line from a pool of several thousand and ship the phone to me.


Most all/good Android games have been upgraded to support the Xperia Play controls so I play my Android games 100% on this device now. Also great for classics as well.

$1!

Thanks for posting about the restock, everytime I'd check they would always have just sold out of them.
