Nintendo Gameboy Advance SP Large Counter Display
STARWING FX COMPETITION CART

Ok, now let me talk a little bit about the stores I’ve visited in my trip.
First one is the Video Games New York. It’s easy to find and it has a big Mario statue in the front. Once you get in, you feel a bit like if you’re in Akihabara: the store is absolutely filled with games and systems from all eras. From the Marty to the Vic-20. There’s no more free space! You’ll even find junk-boxes. Even better, nothing is written in Japanese. Well, almost nothing: they have a small selection of Japanese items.
All the walls are filled with games. The rarities are closed in big showcases, locked. There was a cool Virtual Boy kiosk I was temped to ask about…
So, great selection, a lot of commons, funny items and promos, like the Q-Bert puzzles or the various handhelds. Prices are good for common stuff. Rare items are very expensive. Like a Genesis released review proto priced at 199 usd. But this is a shop, not eBay. And is situated in New York. So you’ve a great selection, you can touch by hand and the peole who work there is very very nice.
Absolutely worth a visit!!!
And prepare yourself to digg in the various boxes randomly filled with stuff. You may find the unexpected!

I went out of the shop and suddenly saw a weird sign.
If Video Games New York will bring you a bit in Akihabara, prepare yourself for a taste of Mandarake. Here comes Toy Zipangu!

A good selection of action figures and one of the nicest shop owners in New York, Tamaki!
All the Japanese stuff an otaku needs.

So, check both stores while in NY!

And no, I didn’t get paid for this. But when I find nice people, I’m happy to show their works!

Next time I’ll talk you about my trip to Clifton and to the Digital Press shop-shrine.

Stay tuned!

  1. VGNY is a pretty great store – the only problem is they almost have too much. It’s really hard to find some thing specific in there, and it make the store feel really small (although it is bigger than their previous location). Don’t get me wrong I love the store, and have been able to find some really great stuff in there – but it’s just too tiny. On a related note – my girlfriend hates when I go in there for a variety of different reasons – so you may want to leave you significant others at home.
