Microwaved 3DS XL, Sonic Generations Press Kit, Street Fighter Pins


Good Morning VGA readers, I’ve got some interesting auctions for your viewing. I don’t think I can top the NWC Gold Mario Statue which is by far impressive to the eye compared to any of these auctions but I do have some cool stuff. The Street Fighter pin lot is really interesting because first these pins were not sold in North America, they come from Japan and were sold there, secondly the seller has, what appears to be a complete set of all the different sets. The price in my opinion is a steal at the buy it now price, I don’t know if you’ll see these pins complete again.

The other interesting auction is the Microwaved 3ds. I don’t know what the purpose is, if I read correctly(after skimming quickly), the seller has a youtube channel where he microwaves stuff. Could be wrong but it seems like it. Who would buy this? I don’t know bu the price is high so if someone has a good explanation please post in the comment section!

  1. As to the microwaved 3DS, read the Q&A below the listing details…It’s all kindof a joke and I believe he makes a small amount of money from Youtube doing this kindof thing (like the guy who will eat anything–people like it, I guess).
    I also wouldn’t be surprised if some moron paid him cost of the item at the auction’s end…

  2. Nice find Robin! Here are my thoughts on this:

    Ebay has dominated the market for collector’s in all categories, but more specifically game collectibles. Almost every game store is selling retro games, few are selling gaming collectibles and if they are they are selling it pretty high. What will GameStop do, pay $500 for a Sonic statue and sell it for $600? They may be making some sort of profit on it but it won’t make them stand out unless they can get the high end collectibles which is the main problem. They are rare for a reason, and that is because you can’t find them. So inventory will be an issue and replenishing that inventory will be costly.

    I don’t know what they have in mind but eBay really is the place to go and everyone knows that. I don’t think they can compete with eBay but they can sure offer retro games and collectibles in their stores which will definitely add a nice flavor.

    What are your thoughts?

  3. I think I tend to agree with you…
    The reason I brought it up is because they’re such a large powerful company (for better or worse) that this move will likey cause a stir–even if they’re “joining the market” doesn’t have much of an impact.

    In regards to collectables, you’re definately right. It’s highly unlikely that they will offer collectables (i.e. like a Sonic statute), simply because they won’t be able to account for the value of such items like they do for games. For example, say there are 900 of the sonic tv anniversary statue and someone brings it into a store. Firstly, that’s very unlikely. Secondly, it’s even more unlikely that Gamestop will have considered the value of this item (or any rare collectable for that matter) so as to allow them to pay for it and resell it on such a small market level. As we know, values of these things fluctuate, can’t be accounted for among every store, etc., etc. Thirdly, because of the second issue, it’s also unlikely that they would authorize individual employees to hand out large amounts of cash (or even credit) based on current market value (even if they could account for it). There is too much risk for a company that doesn’t take any risk. Simply put, the way their stores function isn’t conducive to selling collectables.

    As for everything else, I really can’t see how they would account for rare games either…Again, market prices fluctuate so greatly, condition of the games becomes invaluable information (are they goind to train employees in grading? haha), etc.

    Ultimately, maybe they will pay pennies on the dollar for old N64 games, SNES games, etc., but even then I doubt they will see much profit. Regardless of whether this move works in their favor, you’re almost certainly right, it won’t affect Ebay sellers. That type of market if far more conducive and has, as you stated, cornered the market in, almost, its entirety…

    Anyways, it was good to hear your thoughts on the matter. Have a great Labor Day weekend!

  4. Yeah exactly, and I don’t think it’s that big of a deal they are going to sell retro games. Which store isn’t selling retro games? EBgames has been doing it since the start. It’s like Gamestop declaring they’re selling bikes, there’s no excitement to it. Maybe for the overall strategy it’s cool to have something new to offer, but it won’t drive sells. It’s like adding a kleenex box to your convenient store inventory.

    You enjoy the long weekend too Robin.
