As per thread title, do you consider this to be too far? :mrgreen:

Would you drive around in these mockups?

Blimey. The furthest I have gone is a Sensible Soccer T-Shirt and this pac-man mug . . . which hasn't arrived yet.

Come to an event, there's a mixture of the conservative and the less so!

NES car theme might work on an old Lada, but I'd rather have a slinky Mega Drive paint job.

Would I have something like that? Absolutely. It;d make me smile every time I saw it and that's what counts. I don't care if anyone else thinks it looks bad, its for my amusement.

Want!

Where'd you find those? They'd be good for any game room.

Nice cushions, but I'd get cramp just looking at those Sidewinder pads. Like the Pac-Car too!

I'd gladly post a link matey but the website (for purchase at least) seems a bit dodgy, wouldn't want any members clicking on a dodgy link.

Also they sell for $40 each :roll:

Sadly I'm often reminded in situations like this of all the people I've seen walking around in Atari 2600 T-Shirts who don't have a single clue what Atari actually even is, let alone what it all means. They just wear it because it's deemed "Cool."

How far do I go? Well, I read my copy of Retro Gamer on the bus and train. Everyone else is either reading Heat, Empire or the free Metro newspaper! :lol:

Video game controller soaps :roll:

A dreamcast pad

Soap on a rope! with a nice black wiimote.

They do others too, good for a laugh but ridiculously expensive imo and a bit lumpy if you ever get around to using them :lol:
