So, the long awaited and possibly anticipated JoeCamNet Edition of A Compulsive Collectorís Haul has finally arrived. Some back story is most definitely in order. Both being collectors and all, a friendship between myself and JoeCamNet
developed fairly quickly. Due to some unfortunate circumstances and all, our good friend was in need of some funds for various reasons and whatnot. He decided he to sell some of the items from his collection, and this blog shows off all the things that have been bought by one collector from another collector. Not all is shown, since my homeboy possumwrangler
was also involved as well. This is also over a period of several months, and despite how heíll get ďangryĒ at me, I still feel guilty and bad in the back of my mind for buying most of these items and all. He even threw in a fair number of swag items as well. Reasons will not be disclosed, but I do wish the best for JoeCamNet
and trust me mate, things will improve dude and stay positive!
First up we have a couple of DS games in Feel the Magic: XY/XX and Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled. We also have the Best Buy Limited Edition Metallic Foil Cover version of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, which I now have 2 copies of . . . >_< Right after that we have Robot Alchemic Drive and then finally the European import of Tales of Eternia.
Here we have 3 different special editions of Resident Evil 4, which upon second thought I realize I now have 4 copies of the game essentially . . . -_-Ď The one in the red tin is the GameStop Special Edition for Gamecube which came with like an art cel, a prologue book, making of DVD, and all that good stuff. The Premium Edition one for PS2 is pretty much the exact same, but with a different art cel and is just simply in a steelbook. Finally, the coolest looking one is the PAL Limited Edition which just has like a mini strategy guide in it.
Here we have some more PAL love for the Gamecube, with Doshin the Giant and Gadget Racers. Back to North American games and all, we have Shining Force, Star Ocean: Til the End of Time (with shiny outer box), and Shining Tears for the PS2.
Here we have the No More Heroes Original Sound Tracks 3 disc soundtrack (with spine card) and the Tales 10th Anniversary Soundtrack Volume 3, which neither me nor JoeCamNet
got because Namco gimped up, so we just eBayíd them.
So, this is probably the item I feel most guilty about buying from him and all, but here is a signed copy of the Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots Original Soundtrack (with spine card) that is signed by GEM Impact team famous for working on the Metal Gear series. The members who signed it are Norihiko Hibino, Takahide Ayuzawa, Yoshitaka Suzuki, and Takahiro Izutani.
Once again, Iím a huge swag whore and I hit quite a big motherload with my good friend and all. We begin with a Prelude to an Overkill comic for The House of the Dead: Overkill, followed by a Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box Display, then a The Outfit Faceplate, as well as a Grand Theft Auto IV GTA1V License Plate (which will go nicely with my N1K0 one), then a Conan Exclusive Excerpted Edition art book, and end off with a GameBoy Advance Clipboard and Pen.
Continuing on with the swag and all are some figures. We have a Bob-omb one, followed by a Bunny Girl from the Dragon Quest series, then a Priest from the Disgaea series. Afterwards, we have a Timeline 1931 Ė 53 Ė Events Leading Towards The Turning Point: Fall of Liberty foldout poster and timeline, then we have a Need for Speed Undercover 2009 Calendar and under that are some Dragon Quest keychains of various slimes. Along the bottom row are Mario & Yoshi Clip-Ons, a Nintendo Gamecube Disc Case, a Wii Remote Keychain, Puppet Princess of Marlís Kingdom the Musical Booklet Soundtrack (which in reality is Rhapsody for the DS and was a RosenQueen exclusive that I somehow managed to miss), and then a King Slime Cell Phone Charm.
The crazy thing with the crank is an actual working Handheld DS Charger. Why you would ever use a thing and how bloody long it would take to actually charge a DS are things beyond my knowledge. Next up is yet another variation of the typical PlayStation 3 Lanyards and a Halo 3: ODST Lanyard with Pre-Order Card on it still. That controller is an actual functioning PlayStation 2 Keychain Controller. As long as the game doesnít require the analog sticks to play, itíll play any game. Next to it is a Blue Dragon Plus 2009 Calendar. We also have the PANGYA: Fantasy Golf Ė Golf Ball and Tees, a PlayStation 3 Letter Opener, New Super Mario Bros. Pen, a Donkey Kong Klik, Forza Motorsport 3 Car Air Freshener, and Disgaea: Flonne Rock Strap.
Here we have a couple of Dark Void Postcards, Mario and Mushroom Cell Phone Charms, a Magic Slide (it apparently lets you play PAL and Japanese games without a mod chip and all, but you have to fiddle around with the disc tray, so thereís no way Iím going to use it), Darksiders: The Graphic Adventure, Aion Comic, and Halo Wars Wall Graffix.
Poster time! We have a The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Reversible Poster with the side showing and a map of Hyrule on the other side, and a Fallout 3 Pipboy Poster with Pipboy in like a bajillion different forms.
Yet another reversible poster, only this time itís of Mushroom Men with the other side being all like bubbly 1960ís cartoon-like. Thereís also a couple of Wii Remote and Nunchuk Iron-Ons, as well as Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 Gift Card Holders.
Itís demo disc time! We have WWF SmackDown! Just Bring It, Freaky Flyers, Dual Hearts, Burnout 3 (before Takedown was added), SSX On Tour, a miscellaneous PlayStation one, Alter Echo, yet another miscellaneous PlayStation one, NBA Street V3, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, a DiRT 2 Ė Pushing It DVD, and The Making of Resident Evil 4 DVD.
Here is more swag, but of stuff that I already have! So, expect this stuff to go out in packages if you trade with me. We have ourselves a Facebreaker Demo Disc, Dissidia: Final Fantasy Game Sleeves, Spectrobes Stylus, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Postcards, The Art of Devil May Cry 4, Puchi Puchi Virus Prinny Stress Reliever, Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Art Cel, and Deca Sports 2 Gloves.
Damn! Iíve never seen one of these in Canada, but now I own me some Nintendo Monopoly! Itís pretty sweet with the Nintendo characters as all of the properties and all, as well as the tokens being from various Nintendo series. Although, Linkís Iron Boots was a strange choice in my books for a token, hahaha!
Man, I miss Working Designs. I mean their games were a collectorís dream, with all the shininess (holy hell does that look weird spelt like that, hahaha), limited prints, and just general kickass stuff. Well, here is the Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete Ghaleon Punching Puppet that was a pre-order bonus for Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete . . . donít ask why, hahaha! Right beside that though, would be a Weighted Companion Cube Plush from good old Portal! ^_^
I really need to get over this swag obsession or something. This is a GIANT inflatable LocoRoco advertising the title on the back of it, of which Iím trying to think if I even have room to inflate it up and put it somewhere.
Once again, another company that is incredible when it comes to making accessories for gamers and all would be HORI. This is something Iíve been looking into for a while, despite how I donít include Final Fantasy XI in the Final Fantasy series and all, but this here is a Final Fantasy XI Vanaídiel Clock. It tells regular time, Vanaídiel time, moon phases, has four alarms (one for each nation), and lights up and all. HORI has really outdone themselves again.
Now itís time for some reading! We start off with a Nintendo Comics System #2, which has comics of The Legend of Zelda, Captain N: The Game Master, Metroid, Super Mario Bros., and Punch-Out!! I skimmed through them and theyíre actually kind of funny because of how lame they are! =D We also have the rare Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete guide, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, some Nintendo Wrapping Paper, good old DoubleJumpís Mana Khemia: Alchemist of Al-Revis guide, and the Japanese guide for NiGHTS Into DreamsÖ
We have more guides here, with Star Ocean: The Last Hope, the Collectorís Edition of Fallout 3, which has a foldout poster of the overworld and all, and Soulcalibur IVís Limited Edition guide that has an exclusive cover and soundtrack.
So, we have Jim Sterlingís favorite video game heroine in Bayonetta! This is the poster collection, which has 8 different posters (canít really see in this picture) that are behind one another, all of which have Bayonetta in some suggestive poses and all. Canít really go wrong with that, can you?
We have more Bayonetta, only this time itís a wall scroll, which is a little easier to put up than 8 posters.
Well, that does it for another edition of A Compulsive Collectorís Haul. Once again, much love to JoeCamNet
and all. Stay positive mate, everything will be okay. d(Ď-Ďd) With the last couple hauls out of the way though, I can finally catch up with everything Iíve gotten from like March and April, so stay tuned for those folks, as I think Iíll have a blog just about all the consoles/handhelds Iíve gotten too! Until next time, latez mates!
