As a collector, I tend to come across a variety of game related oddities and some one-off consoles. This is a listing of some of the random video game items I've found that son't quite fit into the larger categories on the site.
Video Game Consoles & Handhelds
Retrode Retro Gaming Adapter
Copy ROMs from your SNES & Genesis Carts with this Retrode adapter that also connects your original game controllers to your computer via USB.
The Atari Flashback 3 is an all-in-one replica of the Atari 2600 (on a smaller scale) with 60 built-in games. It has 2 detachable joysticks and connects easily to any TV via standard RCA plugs.
Merlin Electronic Wizard
Flashing lights were once considered gaming and Merlin was on top of the latest wave of sophisticated (for their time) interactive electronic games. We have scans of the entire Merlin Instruction Manual.
This all-in-one joystick features ten classic (and a few peculiar oddities) video games with easy-to-connect RCA cables. You'll have it lodged onto your TV in no time so you can delve into some classic arcade gaming.
Classic Arcade Game Joystick - Pac-Man
This joystick is battery powered and connects to RCA video-in ports on TVs. It contains 12 classic arcade games.
This candy box, replicating the look of the classic Nintendo NES controller, is full of mints. If you like mints or need to get rid of stank-breath, these might do the trick. I couldn't resist this novelty item even though I don't like mints... especially the ones spritzed with urine near restaurant exits.
Who doesn't love a Nintendo power-up mushroom especially when it's jammed full of minty-looking mushroom-shaped candy? OK, they aren't mints. These are Apple-sour flavored.
Nintendo Question Candy Container
This square question candy tin is loaded with tasty candies that taste much better than I expected.
Au'Some Mario Candy Container
Impulse items never interest me until they're at the register in the Game Section. Suddenly I'm overwhelmed with a mysterious craving for game-themed crap. OK, these Mario candies tasted better than crap, but I need to work harder at staving off the need to buy this sort of useless stuff.
And don't get me started about their unique spelling of "awesome".
Mario Face Candy Container
A candy tin full of red jawbreakers, shaped like Mario's face.
