Obscure gaming related items....

Post by Wildnites » Sat Feb 25, 2006 9:02 am

I know some of you collect gaming related items as I do, so I was wondering what the weirdest piece you have in your collection is?

I will start with my totally useless, but very obscure SETTLERS IV pasta shapes...
Needless to say I wont be eating them :)

I've got a metal Space Invader on a pin:

I don't know if it's rare, or where I got it from.

No Idea. I suppose it could have been. Have you got one too?

I think I got it in the 80's.

Yes, I've seen the Pin somewhere before - I think it was from the cober of a magazine.


My retro related items include:

Dreamcast bedside clock
Die Hard first aid kit
Kage stuffed toy
A Japapnese RPG pocket watch (can't remember what game)

I've got some bits n bobs too somewhere

The Space Invaders pin came with a comic, not a magazine -- I can't remember the comic, even tho I bought two copies to get two pins! I now have neither... :(

I have a set of Britains 'Space Rangers' that Hewson gave away at trade shows to promote 'Astroclone'. I think they are probably the strangest thing I ever got as other than that it's mainly mugs and T-shirts that I seem to have acquired. SCi did give away a nice window sticker to promote Carmageddon though 'So many pedestrians, so little time' but I never had the nerve to put it in the car :D
Cue the music, fade to black...

Got a rare Ocean "Number 1" keyring, given out to independent shopkeepers and distributors to mark Ocean being named top software house (in terms of sales) back in the late 1980's...

I used to get the 1980s Eagle, so it could've been.
