Christmas Themed Video Game Collectibles
The holiday season is a time where we can spend time with family, enjoy some time off to play some video games, and for others, a great time to sell.
These sellers who choose to sell something duruing the holiday season have a strategy in mind. It consists of two things:
1). Have a Christmas related video game collectible; could be a plush or a simple Christmas book
2). Put “Christmas” and/or “Gift” in the title of their listing.
As you can see with the items below, they have one of each, or both in play. Sometimes the price is inflated just because everyone is in the Christmas spirit.
And obviously we all spend more money during the weeks leading up to Christmas. So below are some pretty neat Christmas related collectibles I found.
Crash Bandicoot Japanese Japan OFFICIAL Santa Christmas Plush NIP Naughty Dog
This is a pretty cool item. I mean anything that’s related to Crash Bandicoot is pretty cool, and the fact that PlayStation released Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (info) brought Crash back to life amongst gamers. This particular plush is actually quite rare. It’s a
UFO Plush from Japan. What does that mean?
Well in Japan, they have a bunch of crane games called UFO’s, and these games almost always hold plushes from certain game franchises. Most popular are Super Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog and Street Fighter II. Now I honestly never seen a Crash UFO Plush, let alone a Christmas one, so this is quite rare.
Is it $499 rare?
Well that’s subjective, because all it takes it the right affluent Crash Bandicoot collector to come along and snatch this rarity. However, to the rest of us that could live without a Crash collectible will definitely just window shop here.
Between you and me, I believe the seller is banking on someone buying this plush in the upcoming weeks leading to Christmas.
If you liked the idea of “video game + plush + Christmas” then you might like this plush. It’s a Luigi Raindeer plush! Also a UFO plush; meaning you were only able to win this plush by playing a crane game in Japan. Plush looks to be in great shape. It’s from 1993 and made by BanPresto.
