    Default Strangest thing you've seen a gaming logo on?

    I was just checking through Oobgarm's sale thread and saw he has an N64 tape measure for sale. Huh? what's up with that? I'm sure it was a piece of swag from a show, but still, kinda weird.

    The N64 logo has shown up other odd places, too. On a PC joystick is one I've seen a couple times that is pretty strange. And I recently found an AM/FM 'Sport Radio'.



    So what's the most oddball 'what-the-hell-is-this-doing-here' gaming logo you've come across?

    Well, not anything out of the ordinary. There's those wallets with NES controllers, wristbands with Sonic or the Triforce, etc. that you see at special interest shops at the mall. The only noteworthy thing I've seen is that Donkey Kong Country pogs game.

    Not too surprising though, especially considering Nintendo started out making playing cards.

    If that kind of stuff counts, I've got my own set of Nintendo Monopoly.

    Hey, I have that deck! lol Its actually a great version of UNO. Same exact rules and everything but a "Power" card is added (and, as would make sense here, the Power card is the invincibility star). Thumbs up!

    There was a ton of stuff with the N64 logo on it, I had another AM/FM radio that's different from what's pictured above but I sold it. I also saw a camera with the logo on it, but I passed on it too.

    Here's a Dreamcast bicycle;

    Hey I have that camera! I don't want it though, anyone interested?

    I wonder why the N64 logo has popped up in such odd places?

    I think I've seen pictures of one of those cameras before; definitely a weird one. Reminds me that somewhere around here I have a Pokemon film camera, still new in box I think.

    I'm pretty sure some people have seen it, but I have a Starfox Adventures car air freshener. I thought it was kinda weird, but cool...

    I'm rather fond of my Metal Gear Solid Zippo i got off of Vectorman.

    And i always thought this was a bit strange... It's supposed to be the remote control for the 360, only it's not. And it's like the size of a half dollar. And it's a flashlight. I kind of want to open it to see what's powering it... Good thing i watermarked it so nobody steals the image.

    Not a logo, but I've seen sonic on those toy fishing poles that kids have. It's a china made toy, but running into it in Finland is pretty weird. I'll post a pic once I can find it.

    "Made in China" is a well known phrase in the United States.

    I have a NASCAR car that has Zelda on it, I think there was a Yoshi one as well.

    I part-timed in a local tattoo shop a few years ago. For some reason we couldn't figure out, an entire order of ink had GCN logo stickers on the underside of each bottle. We called the company, but they didn't have any idea what we were talking about.

    Outside of that, at that same shop, I saw a chick who had the N64 logo as a tramp stamp and a guy who wanted the PSX logo tattooed on his joystick.

    I remember seeing Pac-Man shaped ramen called Pac-Men.

    I saw Pac-Man on a can of Lysol once... I wish I took a pic of it... it wasn't the cartoon version with eyes and all, it was just the familiar pieface... way down in the fine print at the bottom of the back of the can... looking like it was supposed to mean something... find Pac-Man on a Lysol can and WIN! but there was no such contest that I knew of, so I have no idea why he was there... definitely weird... and I never saw him on any other Lysol cans since

    I have a Super Mario Bros. Dixie cup dispenser and an old wooden crate with SMB on it.

    Could it be yellow with pikachu as part of one side and a diglet as the take a picture button? I had this camera as a kid, we still have it somewhere but it's broken. It would automatically put a kind of pokemon border on the pictures you took. After about 4 or 5 films though it crapped out on me. Kept it though because it looked so cool and now my little sister plays with it.
