Over Priced E3 1997 Link Statue, Expensive Soundtracks and Finally Some Stuff That's Affordable :)

Ladies and Gents, we have a nice line up of over priced, expensive video game items. You’re probably thinking “Why do this to us!”. Don’t worry, I snagged some affordable auctions as well. It’s always nice to see the things we cannot afford aka window shopping. Also nice to see some rarities. You’re probably also asking what’s the difference between over priced and expensive. Well, over priced items are collectibles that I believe we can all agree are exaggeratedly priced and does not reflect the true value. But the same item can still be expensive but the price reflects the true market value. For example this E3 1997 Link Statue. Don’t get me wrong, it’s rare as f***, but $5000? So we need to take it from two views here. Either the seller already knows that the statue is not worth that much and is pricing it for bargaining power OR they’ve listed it to show off/feel better about themselves. There’s a lot of Zelda fans out there, and many who would love to own this statue. But I’ll be the first one to say’s it’s no where near $5000. Not even $2000. Now last time I saw this statue it went for $750. Perhaps there were others after it that went for more so I would say max would be around the $1000 range for the crazy collector who absolutely needs this statue. But I could see this selling around $500 – $800 on regular auction. I just feel weird looking at that price and thinking, “Doesn’t the seller feel weird at that price“? But in the eBay world, all is game. Hell, if someone can list a Jesus Toast for $1,000,000 then I guess anything is game really.

Over Priced E3 Link Statue 1997

Other Video Game Auctions:
October Loot Crate Sledgesaw Hammer Pen – I think everyone should get this pen. Yes, it will turn heads at school or in the office but who cares! Gamers 4 life man!
Nintendo Mario Japanese Playing Cards – I want these cards!! Vintage Nintendo playing cards are unmatched! although these are done in the Mario era, still has a cool transparent effect in all the cards.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Poster Set Club Nintendo – If you haven’t picked up this set from Club Nintendo, there’s plenty of them on eBay but don’t wait too long. Club Nintendo posters tend to disappear over the months/year so jump on this beaut!
Sharp X68000 Game ARGOS NO SENSHI Japan – Love the artwork for this game! A beheaded monster on the front cover? No way this would have passed in N.America back in the 90’s.
Super Mario Kart Famicom GAME TRAVEL CARRY CASE – I don’t know anyone that owns on of these famicom cases. Do you?
New Gran Turismo Nike Shoe Size 10.5 US + Case & T-Shirt LIMITED EDITION 1000 – Pretty cool item, but I can’t imagine wearing these as in the collectors mind you want to keep them mint!
Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds Nintendo Limited Edition Gamestop Poster – Beautiful poster, and will look very nice framed.
BALLOON FIGHT RARE Game&Watch – Very rare game&watch, but I can’t imagine this being sold for the price. The pool of game&watch collectors have shrunk big time over the year, and those who bought this game already paid premium prices for theirs.
Replica Gears of War Wall Art – Not official but I love it when people create art that can be displayed nicely in your gamer room. Gears of War is one of the most badass games I’ve ever played. Wouldn’t mind having a 3D logo hung up on my wall :).
Capcom 30th Anniversary Ichiban Kuji Rivals Pin Set – Very cool pin set from Capcom for it’s 30th Anniversary. It’s nice just-as-is in the box!
Falcom Special Box 93 Lord Monarch Popful Mail Xanadu Brandish 2 Soundtrack,4 CD – One of the many expensive soundtracks I’ll be listing. But this game has sweet music.
Dragon Quest IV Symphonic Suite Soundtrack,Cd – title says all, but this one’s less than $5 on auction. Jump on it! VG symphonic music is amazing!
Fighter’s History Dynamite NEO-GEO CD Data East Original Soundtrack,CD – Same as above
Genso Suikoden / Konami Original Soundtrack,CD – Not sure how many Suikoden fans we have here, but the music from the series always rivaled the Final Fantasy soundtracks (but still nothing beats FF).
Eternal Arcadia Original Soundtrack,CD – Another very pricy soundtrack, but one game I have never played. Will check up on youtube what this Eternal Arcadia is all about.
1989 Nintendo of America Inc Mario and Bowser OG fanny pack – Damn, talk about bringing me back in time. Doc, let’s go back to the year 1989 – I need to buy this fanny pack for retail price of $1.34!
Nintendo Virtual Boy and 8 games tested working – Wow, amazing price considering you get 8 games! Once the virtual reality machines come out for Playstation and Oculus, trust me when I say these Nintendo Virtual Boy’s will be golden!
Crysis Backpack From Nano Edition Game – BRAND NEW & UNUSED – Really cool looking bag. But I couldn’t imagine myself walking into a class room with it.
Sonic the Hedgehog Dinnerware Set 1993 Plate Mug & Bowl RARE Sega Zak Designs – About freaking time someone place a bid on this dinnerware set. At $30 what the hell is taking so long for this to sell? We had listed this set last week with no bidders. Shocked it’s not at the $50 mark. Totally worth it at that price, complete and in semi new condition.
Game Boy Console JP GAME – for you vg Japan nuts out there.
Nintendo Wii Dog Tags and Lapel Pins – Not sure what to think about this. Not sure what to say to someone who would be wearing this in front of me while I secretly give them props for pulling it off in public…
Halo 3 Autographed Video Game by Frank O’ Connor + 5 Other Developers – Long live the days where Halo’s engine was still new even in game #3. Now it’s dying out (well for me), and I can’t seem to enjoy that style of game. Need’s to be fast, like Call of Duty fast!
SUPER MARIO 3D LAND Super Leaf Tomy Gatcha Danglers Keychain Charm – awwwww… look at the cute Super Mario 3D Land leaf…. it’s cute looking back at you with half it’s head bitten off…

Good luck!
