We’re already halfway through January and have plenty of fun new stuff to share with you. *Mr. Bucket not included!
Fairy Tail Weiss Schwarz Trial Decks and Booster Packs made their way to the store yesterday. Only a small amount of booster packs remain after the great onslaught of January 14th, but there’s still plenty of Trial Decks to go around!
We’ve been consistently getting in old school Pokemon games lately. And as fast as they come in, they vanish.
Something new from Ultra Pro – a Cube Draft storage box. It’s large and pretty.
Our Real Action Heroes selection expands with the arrival of Levi. Complete with cleaning gear!
Something new from Phat! and Good Smile Company – Kantai Collection Medicchu(s)! Just about the size of a Nendoroid, these figures are great for those looking for Nendoroid quality on a tighter budget.
Dragon Ball key chains ~ only $2.99 a pop.
More Monster Hunter blind boxes ~ no cats this time around, just lots of things with nasty big pointy teeth.
The RAH Levi figure a bit closer up. That look of destain! Good gravy.
And speaking of Levi, Max Factory did another wave of the Levi Figmas!
Our NES selection has been rebuilding slowly but surely. I can’t remember the last time we had 2 Bubble Bobbles in stock at the same time.
Over the last month or so we’ve received about a dozen new different Nendoroids. Here’s a small helping of them!
We don’t typically carry a lot of Naruto products, as they’re a bit easier to come by, but these guys were just too cute.
Magic the Gathering Fate Reforged supplies are in stock now. This Saturday at 5:00 is the pre-release! Hope to see you here.
That’s it for this edition of “This Just In!” ~ until next time, adios!
Hey there peoples! Happy 2015! This past year, in an effort to see how much gaming I’m actually getting in, I decided to make a log of all of the games I had the opportunity to play. They’re split up into 2 basic catagories: “Games I played a TON of/Completed” and “Games I started/re-started!”
All in all I got my hands on 61 games over the course of the year, which I believe is a personal best! Here’s the breakdown of both catagories ~
Games I played a TON of/Completed:
Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)
Castlevania: Harmony of Disonance (VC)
Shovel Knight (Wii U)
King of Pro Wrestling Online (PC)
Dark Souls (PS3)
Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle (PS3)
Hyrule Warriors (Wii U)
How many more days until Christmas? Six? Gah! I don’t know about you, but I’m not quite done shopping for my friends and family yet. Time to get a move on huh? Well if you are in the same boat I am, hopefully these ideas will help you finish your list.
1) Sunset Riders – Sega Genesis – We just got this game in, which is exciting as it doesn’t come in often. The cherry on top of this is that it’s boxed! This side-scrolling shoot ‘em up game is a classic, complete with hordes of bandits, gunslingers, and horse thieves. It’s an exciting addition to anyone’s collection. $44.99+tax

4) Pokemon Red Version – Is there ever a time when Pokemon games aren’t popular? With the recent release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the old GameBoy games seem to more popular than ever.

Today’s Holiday Gift Guide is for the ladies. These items are items that I own and love, and think that a special lady in your life will love also.
1) Princess Debut, Nintendo DS – This DS game, MoosiferX found for me and it’s just as perfect as he thought it would be. In this game, you play as a normal girl living a normal life who meets her doppleganger from a different universe. This version is a princess and wants to dodge out of “debut” into society. In a “Prince and the Pauper” like story, you trade places with the princess and spend the next month learning dances and choosing which prince you want to dance with at the upcoming ball. It’s a mix between a dating simulator and a rhythm game. Charming and cute, this game is perfect for gals teens and up. $24.99+tax
2) Mikasa Akerman – Real Action Hero Figure – This is more than just a figure or a work of art. This 12 inch faithful representation of the main heroine of Attack on Titan is nothing short of perfection. She comes with three different faces, two different hair styles, a fully pose-able body, and soft fabric clothes (including the Survey Corps cape). This beauty is worth every penny and would be a feather in the cap of any serious figure collector. $249.99+tax.
3) Chobits – manga – Can a robot love? That’s what this series is all about. Chobits has become an essential series to any manga lover or lover of sweet romance stories. Over the course of seven volumes the main heroine, Chii, (who is a personal computer robot) learns how to live and how to love. Prices vary.
