Famitsu Exclusive Model Game Boy Light Skeleton

Link

It’s been like three years since I’ve seen one of these. I can’t remember what it sold for to be honest, but it was far from cheap. I’m thinking $400 or so.

Anyways these were released for the celebration of the 500th issue of Famisu (Japanese video game magazine) and were limited to 5,000 units. Each one is individually numbered. There is also an mail order only version, which while not being numbered, comes in a sweet black case. You have to love the art on this blister case though.

Nintendo Game and Watch Super Mario Bros Special Edition

These were given out to the winners of the Famicom F-1 Grand Prix tournament in Japan. Only 10,000 units of this version were produced and it was never available for retail sale, making it one of the rarest of all Game & Watch games. The nifty looking plastic box is actually modeled after the Disk-kun character Nintendo used to advertise their Famicom Disk System.

Sealed XBOX 360 Blood Bowl Promotional Copy – Seller has more new 360 promotional games too, including Blacksite (under $10.00), Divinity 2, Metro 2033 and MX VS AT. They also have some Sony PS3 / PSP promo copies, with Wheelman , Ironman 2 and Hot Brain (PSP).

  1. With regards to those 360 promotional games, judging by the cover, they aren’t “promotional” in any sort of collectable sense, that simply means that the game came bundled with the console.

    At least, that seems to be the case in the UK. They aren’t like the white label DC promos or black label PSX promos.

  2. Ah, ok, I’m not familiar with UK stuff. I assumed they were some sort of retailer promo. Full regular version, just sent out for some purpose.

  3. I could be a bit out of touch, but I would argue that this famitsu GBL isn’t that rare. I feel like i’ve seen them fairly regularly over the last four years on ebay. some loose, some complete.

    While the package for this one is pretty cute, I’d also say that both versions of the astroboy GBL (which are just as rare, 1-5000 ea) are a bit more attractive. Especially the red one. 🙂

    maybe other collectors, would weigh in on this.
