Gaming Collection Discussion

Gaming Collection

Figured I'd make a thread for discussion about any collections regarding Gaming. From actual games, to Collector's Editions, Figurines, Statues, Cards, Consoles, Controllers, and so on. Anything as long as it related to gaming.

Feel free to post Pictures of your Collection, or just talk and discuss about others' collections or what you WANT to collect, or just WHY you collect, so on and so on.

Go Nuts

This is my (slightly outdated) collection of games, figurines, statues, etc etc, of which I am quite proud of. I have remodeled the shelves and such a lot after these were taken, but these at least shows most of it.

I always have trouble with collecting, since I want so much. It is hard to balance the game/controllers/console side and the merchendice/statues/etc side. Especially with things like the First4Figures statues being so costly, yet I really want them (have 7 so far, yay).

Also, I only have ONE Waluigi thing in my entire Nintendo room. :c I am ashamed.

Waluigi is the Dick Dastardly of the Mario series, he just needs his own Mutley.

Nice new thread, by the way. I'll share my (very small compared to yours) collection later, everything's in different places in my room, which is also a mess.

Wario is Mutley enough, isn't he? XD But yeah, I just wish he had some more stuff in the form of merchendice. I have his Amiibo, but that's about it.

And thank you kindly. Smile Also, please do share whenever you want to. ^^ Even a smaller collection is always nice to see.

Thank you for all of the pics, Hammer! You have quite a nice collection. Smile Imagine having all of it more in the same space, it will look even bigger and nicer. XD

You have quite a lot of stuff I want, as well. Plenty of bundles/editions for games. I have sorta a goal to get ALL Special Editions/Bundles/etc that are Nintendo-made/exclusive, so, I have quite a ways to go. Also, is that a Mario & Sonic bundle thingy? I forget that existed. D: Darn.

Also want that Luigi and Yoshi figures. I have the big Mario one, but those two seems to not release in Sweden. ^^"

Haha, I need to get more shelves and move all my non-gaming stuff to another room XD

Yep, that's a Mario & Sonic Sochi 2014 + Blue Wiimote Plus bundle, as far as I know, it was released only in the Americas.
Fun fact, the bundle was slightly cheaper than the standalone game, but it's gonna have a permanent price attached to it, I'll NEVER gonna get a color-matching Nunchuck unless it's one of those 3rd-party ones, which I refuse to buy.

I also have the same goal, and then I realised I was an idiot for selling my Metroid Prime + Metroid Prime 2 Bonus Disc, I'm trying to get it once again, that's what happens when you get so used to the controls on the Wii version and go back to the GCN one. Another boxed bundle I have is Dance Dance Revolution: Mario Mix, but there's no way that's gonna fit with the rest.

I know there are other options, but when it comes to series like Zelda, Metroid, MOTHER, Mega Man, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy and Bayonetta, I've accepted that amiibo figures are my only source of merchandise. I mean, prices here in Mexico for official merchandise are a joke, and I know there's the World of Nintendo series, but stores only seem to get Mario stuff, do I need more of that? Maybe for Daisy, Waluigi, Wario, Rosalina, Bowser and Dr. Mario (if there's anything), the only exceptions so far are that Yellow Pikmin plush I saw in a supermarket and a Power Suit Samus in a 2nd hand store.

Interesting, so Sweden got the big Mario but not the Luigi and Yoshi ones? That's strange.

EDIT: I wish there was a way to upvote fourm threads.

No worries, though, I know it is a real pain sometimes to make a collection look good (I still do not deem mine to 'look' good, haha).

And I see.. only released in America? That is a shame, but I guess it makes it easier for me for now, hah. I sadly only have some normal White Wiimotes and the Luigi one. I forgot to get all the other Mario ones before they vanished in most places, so I will have to try to snatch them up soon. ^^" I won't be satesfied until I have all the Wiimote variants. Oh, and I also really want that Dance Dance Mario Mix box (with all the stuff). XD Luckily, it is available in some ways here. Smile

Also, ooh, I guess Mexico is rather pricey when it comes to gaming stuff, then? Sorry to hear that, that outta make it harder. :s Hope you'll get lucky to score some nice stuff, though. We ALL need more Waluigi in our lives.
Oh, and yes, we got the Mario, but not the full set, which sucks. -w- Also, I do have the Yellow and Red Pikmin plushies, but... the Blue one never released here. Those monsters. :c

To get all special Editions in the future, or past ones too?

Both. ^^ I aim to make sure I get all special/limited/collector's/big-box editions of Nintendo titles, or titles releasing on Nintendo consoles. And I try to go back and pick up older ones whenever I can.

Example, I bought the Hey You, Pikachu! Microphone Bundle (decent condition) for about the price of a Amiibo. ^^ Granted, it is the Japanese version, which was cheaper here, but still.

Speaking of Hey You, Pikachu! Wasn't that game unreleased in Europe?

I actually have no idea. Let me look it up.

*looks it up*

Huh, it really never WAS released here. Well then, I am super glad I could find the Japanese big box version for so cheap, then. ^^ I'd love to have the US box as well someday, but it costs like 10 times more, haha.

Thank you. ^^

Also, to update on my collection, I just bought Horizon Zero Dawn Collector's Edition.

You make me really regret not having the boxes for older systems I inherited from older siblings like the gameboy and snes.
