Here’s some nice auctions that you should check out. Last week we featured an old Nintendo board game called “The Destiny Game”. Well this time there’s another pre-NES product from them called the Nintendo Block Lounge Set. Basically it is “Lego” but from Nintendo. For those who aren’t familiar with Nintendo’s pre-NES products, N&B was a branch in Nintendo that created toys to compete against LEGO back in the 1960’s. N&B released several different block sets and the difference between the two companies was that N&B produced “circular pieces” while LEGO had “brick pieces”. Nintendo even made commercials comparing the differences and how much more attractive the N&B blocks were, but consumers who purchased the sets started to complain that the pieces were weren’t connecting properly and in the end Nintendo closed down N&B operations.
Whats cool to note down is that in SML2: 6 Golden Coins, a level is featured in the game that’s made out of N&B Blocks! Pretty slick Nintendo!
Other Video Game Auctions:
Limited Edition Resident Evil 4 Gamecube Console – The auction is currently at $1,037.92 US. The reason is because this is a factory sealed console and is in mint condition.
Nintendo Power Super Metroid Samus Aran Joyride Figure – Seller says that this is the Joyride Samus Aran figure from Nintendo and was released in the early 2000’s. Nintendo Power figures are always hard to find especially with the card board.
Brand New Metroid for the NES – for all you UK readers this is a pretty rare auction. You hardly ever see this PAL version sealed. The price is currently at 320 GBP.
Gigantic SEGA and Jaguar Console Lot – Another great auction in the UK. Everything he offers is boxed and in amazing shape! Check it out
NES Metroid Asian Version – I thought I’d show this since you don’t really see the Asian version of this game complete, and there’s plenty of collectors who are into the regional games. Just the box art and the fact it says “Asian Version” is really neat. Check it out!
