Good morning VGA readers. I’ve got a nice assortment of auctions for your viewing. The life size Mario is really cool, just take a look at the size of it. Where would you put it in your game room? Would it fit? The odd thing is that the seller says he’ll ship it within the US. Anyhow enjoy the listings today.
First auction is for a Mega Man Universe Poster SIGNED BY KEIJI INAFUNE. The lithographs were given out at Comic Con to promote Mega Man Universe. Now the seller doesn’t know if “Akito Ito” signed it and that’s probably because he/she bought it off eBay and didn’t attend the event which is perfectly fine, but that’s the reason of the doubt. But I am here today my friends to confirm that YES this IS Akito Ito. So this auction isn’t just for Keiji’s autograph which is monumental on it’s own which I will get to in a second but also signed by Akito Ito who worked on this game. The reason this is going to be VERY rare is because Keiji left Capcom several months ago to pursue his own projects. Keiji created Mega Man. He is the soul and spirit of that game. Now that he left we don’t know if Mega Man will continue to be the same. Capcom will continue making Mega Man games of course because they own the character rights, but without the guidance of Inafune. On top of all this chaos Mega Man Universe was discontinued, never to be released! Maybe they will in the future who knows but this is what makes this piece extremely valuable. The fact you have Keiji Inafune, who left Capcom now, sign a Mega Man Universe lithograph, a game that will never come out is just nuts. The auction is for $50 to start and this price is peanuts to what it will be worth some day to those extreme collectors.
Other Video Game Auctions:
– Yoshitaka Amano Book With Original Drawing – Yoshitaka Amano is the artist for the Final Fantasy series since day one. Is work is beautiful, anyone can vouch this. Finding original work is not easy an this seller has a nice sketch with autograph from one o his art books. Nice!
– Metal Gear Solid 4 Store Display Sealed – A nice sealed display for MGS4 from the Netherlands. The seller ships world wide. (Thanks Hendrik!)
– METAL GEAR SOLID Big Boss Recruit Post Card – A post card for the psp it was just for promotion, has a “Not for Sale” on the back.
– Nintendo Super Mario 7 ft Life Size Display – I have seen one in the past year on eBay and it wasn’t in as good of a shape as this one. Could even be the same one but it didn’t look as nice as this. Take a look at the picture, the checkboard floors, yellow/orange wall color, super mario with a kid who’s wearing clothes from 1993, this auction has to suck you in and give you a 2 second Super Mario 3 feeling.
– Discworld PAL Playstation Signed – It’s cool to have this signed by the Lead Programmer. The seller is apparently married to the lead programmer so if you win this auction she will get him to sign it for you. How much credibility does she have? I don’t know, who would take an obscure title and bs this? Either a sicko or a competent business mind.
– Discworld II Pal Playstation Signed – Same as above.
– Official Assassin’s Creed Hoodie signed by Nolan North Charity Auction – It’s always nice to see charity auctions going to a good cause. This is a unique opportunity to own a bit of gaming history and support the incredible games charity SpecialEffect. This is one of only two Insert Coin prototypes – and the only one in ‘Sanguine Red’. It is a preproduction version of the unique and much sought after hoodie, signed on the chest by Nolan North, ‘the voice of gaming’ and the man behind Desmond Miles.
– Dreamcast Shenmue game manual signed by Yu Suzuki – Shenmue was the biggest title for the Dreamcat in my opinion. The game play was ground breaking, he details, the music, the graphics, this game had it all and was a highly anticipated release. It’s signed by the creator.
– Heroes Never Die autographed poster – over 80 signatures – This is another charity aution going to the children’s miracle network hospital. This poster was purchased at Halo Fest PAX 2011. It was signed by everyone at 343 industries, Pete Stacker, Frank O’Connor etc…
– Hand Made Maniac Mansion Purple Tentacle Plush – A custom Maniac Mansion plush of Purple Tentacle. I love this plush, even if it’s custom, but I’m not loving the price. At $5o it would be reasonable but not $3000!
– Sharp Nintendo Television – An official Nintendo Sharp television. It was purchased from a K-Mart in 1993. Comes with the remote control.
– Bungie 25th Anniversary Halo On The Edge Signed Lithograph – This is an official Halo lithograph signed by the artist. It is limited to 100 copies.
– Bungie 25th Anniversary Halo Spartan Armory Signed Lithograph reach 3 promo – Same as above, limited to 100. These are really nice.
– Shigeru Miyamoto Autographed DS Skin – This Miyamoto autograph is on a DS Skin, not the desired choice for the biggest name in Video Game History, but it’ll do.
– NYCC 2011 Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Ryota Niitsuma Autographed – Signed by the producer this is an XL shirt, but who would ever wear it? Unless of course you want to dress to impress at a video game convention.
– NYCC 2011 Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Jason Leigh Autographed Poster – Signed by the producer of Dead Rising 3: OTR. It was signed at the New York Comic con.
