It's not so much a haul as it is just one item, but, I wonder if you can guess what it is?

I can promise it's not a DW Kiosk...  Embarrassed

I'll give you a clue - it's something Nintendo-related that I've been looking for NIB, for the best part of this year.

Is it a game accessory used by some game or gaming related merchandise?

Doremikko keyboard!

I was hoping it would arrive today, alas it's probably a few more days away.  No it is not an accessory or merch - I do need a brand new Doremiko though, not seen a 100% brand new one available as yet, it's on the 'to get' list..

Welp, it arrived!  Super duper mega happy Cheesy



Spoiler  :






I tried so hard to get one of these so am very happy to be able to finally hold it.  Showed a few folks in the office who agreed it's nice, but to me these are more than nice, they're works of art.

Can't bring myself to actually open the bag or test it out, which leaves me wanting to get another one, and so the hunt continues...

 Starman Starman Starman CONGRATULATIONS L_E_T!!!!  Starman Starman Starman

I know how nearly impossible these are to get. I'm glad you were able to secure one of these one of a kind beauties. You have an interesting story of how you were able to track it down?

Thanks Stealthlurker - though no interesting story really - just good old-fashioned persistence.  For me the hard part was not getting one as such, but actually deciding whether or not to try and get one.

I missed out first few times and became really disheartened to the point where I didn't think I cold take missing out again, but the supply of parts has dried up so it's now or never, I'm just glad I decided to press on and finally get one.  

I don't think I can bring myself to open it and use it, but that won't stop me enjoying it a massive amount.  I'll try and find a couple AGS 101 screens to mod my Famicom SP and I'd like to also make a Famicom style GBA.

I myself don't have a problem with the GBA SP shoulder buttons, but I also like to play GBA games on my TV via the Super Famicom adaptor and I'm looking for a GCN Gameboy Player as well.

That handheld is quite the beaut - congrats, L___E___T, it seems you've wanted one of those for a while now.

Oh don't do that Nightstar!  When I see pics like yours, with a few nice-looking, boxed Famicom games, it just makes me want to collect those games boxed.  Very nice stuff!!!

Heh, good to know I've inspired others with my hobby! FC/SFC CIBs are so much fun... perhaps consider getting into them once you finish up your unlicensed collection?

So ends another chapter in the glorious legend of the Ninja... Until next time...
