This Just In! ~ A December to Remember: SO MANY GOODIES!

First and foremost, thanks to everyone who made our Thanksgiving week sale such a huge success! It was crazy busy. :D December is finally here, and with it comes a few new additions to the store. For this edition of “This Just In”, there are figures abound, along with a handful of other random surprises!

Sound Banks!

We recently acquired some nifty Mario Sound Banks. There’s several different blocks and they make different Mario sounds every time you insert a coin. Excellent stocking stuffers!

A freshly stocked figure case.

Our collectible figure case is absolutely filled to the MAX. Check some of the figures we recently picked up, below!

Robotics;Notes / Katana Gatari / Accel World

Robotics;Notes is one of the most recent animes to enter the world of Weiss Schwarz. We also snagged a few more boxes of Accel World, and the excellent Katana Gatari.

Come learn how to play!

Sarah and I recently set up a new “demo” table up front, so we can teach people how to play Magic, Weiss Schwarz, or whatever really! If you ever want to play a game with us, and we’re not too busy, we have a cozy little spot now!

Anime, filled to the brim.

Last week we had a huge variety of new animes show up at the store. If you’re looking for a new series to watch, be sure to check them out.

New sleeveseseseses!

Our ever growing selection of imported card sleeves saw a few new additions this week. Robotics;Notes (perfect for your R;N Weiss Schwarz decks!) and Atelier Totori/Meruru sleeves are available now!

Karen Ararararararagi Figma

Instead of taking pictures of figures in the boxes this week, I thought I’d just post some professional ones ~ here’s the Karen Araragi Figma from Bake/Nisemonogatari.

KOS-MOS, of Xenosaga fame.

I never made it all the way to Xenosaga Episode III, so this KOS-MOS related Figma kind of fascinates me. Makes me want to pick those games up again.

Persona 2's Lisa

For the Persona fan in your life, we have this lovely Lisa figure from Persona 2!

The cutest Rorona, EVER.

The Atelier series has produced many an adorable figure, but maybe none as cute as this particular Rorona one. A favorite of Sarah’s!

IIIIMAAAAAAAAGIIIIIIIIIIIIINE!

Last but not least is this wonderful Nendoroid of Himari from Mawaru Penguindrum. Such an amazing series!

Well that just about covers everything from the last week or so. Hope everyone is having a safe and fun holiday shopping season so far, and we’ll see you around!

STG’s Turkey Week Bonanza + Gift Cards!

Here’s our “ad” for our Thanksgiving sale. Feel free to print out a copy and put in inside your newspaper to get the FULL EFFECT!!! (Click to enlarge, eh!)

TURKEY WEEK BONANZA!!!

Sunken Treasures Games ~ Now with Miku!

Today, Sunken Treasures Games had a very special guest, courtesy of “Project Diva f” for the Playstation Vita – Hatsune Miku!

初音ミクだよ!

Through the magic of Project Diva f for the Playstation Vita, famed idol Miku was able to take a stroll through our store today. ^^;

初音ミクだよ!

That’s the same face we make when we see our Marvel vs. Capcom 2 machine, as well.

初音ミクだよ!

Surveying our wares.

初音ミクだよ!

SARAHBOT-9000 (admittedly, a big fan of Miku) snags a *nyan* photo with the famous idol!

Incidentally the game itself is amazing, and if you’re a vocaloid fan with a Vita it’s definitely worth the price to import. Now just another 5 months until the Project Diva Weiss Schwarz set… *drool*

Some many different decks!

Some of the decks featured were Madoka, Railgun, Evangelion, Angel Beats, Idolm@ster, Milky Holmes, Little Busters, Robotic;Notes, Guilty Crown and more!

Halo 4 a Good Cause ~ Food Drive + Tournament

As Halo 4 approaches so too does Thanksgiving! Well in the spirit of giving, we here at Sunken Treasures are proud to announce our next food drive / video game tournament – Halo 4 a Good Cause!

Halo 4 a Good Cause!

Join us on Friday, November 9th at 5 p.m. to partake in a veritable tournament of champions! Last year’s HALO-ween Massacre was a huge success, as we were able to donate a hefty amount of food to the Richland Food Bank. This year we’re hoping (with your help) to double our previous efforts.

Entry fee for the tournament will be $5.00 plus at least 1 of your favorite non-parishable food items.

The tournament will be run very similarly to last year’s HALO-ween Massacre, and based on a points system. And just as with last year’s tourney, expect dozens of different (and very wacky) gameplay variants!

We really look forward to hosting this event, and will be starting signups for the tournament later this week. If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them below or contact us at the store ~ 509-943-4564 / mail.sunkentreasures@gmail.com

Zombie Walk For Brain Cancer!

Saturday, October 20th is the 2nd annual Zombie Walk For Brain Cancer. The event starts at the John Dam Plaza in Richland and will run from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.! There will be costume contests, make-up artists, movies and much more. Help take a bite out of brain cancer!

Gah!  Zombies!

The event is being sponsored by Moon Garden Grove, End Brain Cancer, and Adventures Underground – where you can actually become zombified (i.e. get your make-up done) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. ~ It’s set to be a great event and it’s for a good cause, so why not join the zombie mob and show your support!

For more information check out the official Facebook event page.

This Just In! ~ Early Octoberfest Ravnica+ Edition!

Today is Return to Ravnica day, but in addition to this highly anticipated Magic the Gathering set, we stocked a few other goodies!

The Return of the Return of Ravnica - THE RETURN.

Jaces, Abrupt Decays, and Niv-Mizzets OH MY!

Jaces, Abrupt Decays, and Niv-Mizzets – OH MY! We snagged quite a few amazing rares so be sure to check them out when you come pick up your Return to Ravnica stuffs!

Cake, and grief counseling, will be available at the conclusion of the test.

As I mentioned above, Ravnica isn’t all that we got in today – some amazing Portal 2 merchandise arrived in the form of heavy duty ceramic drink coasters! Another way for you to show your love of Aperture Science and their fine testing facilities.

Black Rock Shooter!

The latest Black Rock Shooter Nendoroid! This is actually the anime version of the character, and is a really outstanding new figure. Great faces/poses!

DIGDIGDIGDIGDIG

The perfect gift for any Minecraft lover – we also scored some life size MC Pickaxes!

So yeah, a great start to the month of October and we have much more excitement ahead as we near Halloween!
