    Default What's the most obscure gaming related item you own?

    I'd have to say that the most obscure thing (gaming related) I own is a large plastic shopping bag with the Atari logo printed on it, and their slogan below.

    What's your's?

    I don't have a lot of non-gaming memorabilia...

    I have DP to thank for these...

    A plastic Playstation bag
    A Zapper (? I think that was the name) the Cricket "clicker"
    A Shinobi Ninja Star...I still like to throw it at my sister when she's sleeping...

    and the Funco in Port Huron Michigan gave me a Stuntman standee...

    Hmmmmmmmm....

    the oddest one I have is probably a giant Super Mario Bros. 2 beer mug...holds almost 2 liters, and it's heavy glass.

    Other honorable mentions include wall sticker skinless dogs from Resident Evil 2, some really bad Captain N comics, a 5' Samus from Metroid Prime, promotional FFVII poster and cardboard standee, a cloth Shadow Madness map, and my treasured Ghaleon punching puppet from Lunar!

    I have at least 100 different Pac-Man items but the most obscure thing I have had is a pair of Nintendo prescription eyeglasses. I don't have them anymore though.

    I used to have a large store display board (about 3' by 4') that had a number of Pac Man air refresher. I should have a picture of them somewhere. I traded it away to someone in Bowling Green (OH) for a load of rare Atari games.

    Probably the most obscure gaming item I have is a plastic shell for a small TV that says "SEGA" on the bottom front. It was thrown out by a department store that was getting rid of thier Genesis demo kiosk. Sadly, this was the only part I could find in their dumpster.

    Maybe not obscure but definitely one-offish... the Spectrum 48k that Jeff Minter used to code Llamasoft games for that format
