Weekly pick-ups: Week 114!

I got a bunch of stuff this week; some games (it was bargain bin time again), blu rays and two TMNT figurines!

Donatello and Michelangelo TMNT figures

The 90’s TMNT cartoon is one of my favorite cartoons of all time so when I saw these figurines in that style I just had to have them. I already owned a Rocksteady figurine from the same range which is great; they now share a spot on my figurine shelf!

Spider-Man Homecoming and IT (blu ray)

Spider-Man Homecoming is the best live action Spider-Man movie because it just perfectly captures who Spider-Man is (Tom Holland is perfect for the role). IT was a great horror film that I, as a horror movie collector, just needed to have. I got both blu-rays for €20 which isn’t a bad deal!

Might No.9 (Xbox One)

The reviews for this games aren’t great but I really wanted to give it a go because I like the old Mega Man games. And it was only €3.99 so even if I don’t like it, I didn’t waste too much money.

Socom US Navy Seals (PS2)

I remember getting this game (and the headset) together with my OPM2 (official playstation magazine) subscription and I immediately fell in love with it. I know that there are a lot of tactical shooters that are better than Socom but it’s just a bit of nostalgia for me!

Command and Conquer Collection (PC)

17 Command and Conquer games for €1? Count me in!

Lego Marvel Avengers and Superbeat Xonic (PS Vita)

Lego games are always a ton of fun and getting this also helps my PS Vita collection. I didn’t know anything about Superbeat Xonic but I saw that it was a rhythm game so I just bought it. Lego Marvel Avengers was €5 and Superbeat only €3 so yeah; can’t really say no to that.

Weekly pick-ups: Week 111!

It’s been a while since I’ve done my last weekly pick ups and that’s mostly because I waited for some stuff to arrive. Now most of the things that I’ve ordered have arrived so I can update you guys on what I got! Are you ready? I sure hope so because I’m going to get right to it!

Kratos and Atreus Totaku Figures

The new God of War is easily one of the best games on the PS4 yet so it’s no wonder that it got a ton of merchandise. I got these two Totaku figures for €15 each, which is a good price for figurines which look as good as these ones.

X-Com 2 (Xbox One)

I wasn’t really looking for any Xbox One games but I found this one in the bargain bin for €4 so why not? I’ve played the first game on PC and I enjoyed that so I hope that this one is more of the same.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap (PS4)

Nostalgia fever hit me with this one. It’s a remake of a classic Sega Mastersystem game and it’s really fun. It also came with some fun collectibles (a keychain, a cd and a little instruction booklet) that gave it that extra retro feel!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 82!

This week we take a trip to the past. I bought some new/old toys that were a big part of my childhood. Let’s see what I got!

Virgil Tracy Thunderbirds Action Figure Doll (Matchbox)

I loved Thunderbirds growing up; I had all the VHS tapes and I would watch them whenever I could. I also owned most of the toys that were available at the time (including the Tracy Island set) and I loved them! I however stupidly sold them in my teenage years and I regret that decision till this day. A couple of weeks ago I found one of these dolls on eBay; complete and in the box for about €30 with shipping; not a bad price for a piece of my childhood. This doll will get a prominent place in my collection; probably right next to the dvd boxset.

Rocksteady; TMNT classics

Last week I got a bunch of TMNT stuff and this week I added this Rocksteady figure. I bought it on Amazon for €20 and I want to re-watch the classic cartoon every time I look at the packaging. This will go perfect with the Bebop action figure that I got last week!

What did you guys sell in the past that you now regret? Let me know in the comments!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 62!

This week it’s a big nostalgia trip for me; I bought something that was a HUGE part of my childhood.

The Adventures of Tintin (of de avonturen van Kuifje, like it’s called in Dutch)

This special set contains all the official TinTin comics (all 22 of them) + 2 extra’s (Tintin in the Soviet Union and Tintin and Alph-Art). They are all hardcover’s which is a great thing to keep them in good condition. The stories themselves are still enjoyable (even if you’re an adult) so I’m going to dedicate some of my free time to read all of them once again!

Nintendo announces the NES Mini !

Nintendo just loves to play with our nostalgic feelings. After Pokémon Go (which is a HUGE success) they announced a mini version of their first popular home console: the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The system will be released with 30 pre installed games such as Super Mario Bros 3 and Metroid. The list looks pretty good and features something for everyone to enjoy (I’ll include the full list below). An advantage that this NES mini has over the original NES is that this has a HDMI output; older consoles sometimes look pretty bad on newer televisions but because this has a HDMI output that won’t be the case.

The NES Mini will be powered via USB but it will only give you the USB cable, not the charging plug (but mostly everyone has one for their phone so that isn’t a big deal). Lastly the console comes with a classic NES controller and the cool thing is that it can also be used on the Wii and WiiU (to play NES games). All those things sound pretty good but a system like this only succeeds if the price is right and that seems to be the case. The NES mini will be sold for 60 Dollars and an additional controller will set you back 10 dollars. A lot of people will be interested in this system for that price and I’ll bet you that they will sell out on the release (the 10th of november). I will definitely buy one but how about you? Are you interested in such a system? Let me know on the comments!
