    I've heard of that Cardcaptor Sakura GameBoy Color even before you posted it. Speaking of anime-themed video game consoles, they also made a 3DS LL case with HeartThrob!/DokiDoki! Pretty Cure on it for the launch of "HeartThrob! Pretty Cure: Life of Pretending (DokiDoki! Purikyua: Narikiri Life). It's not an anime-themed console, but still...
    I've read that article before, since I'm a big Garfield and Friends fan. This had to be my favorite part of the article.
    I agree with him. Who couldn't love love a duck wearing a kiddie pool float that copies his motions, has a British accent, overreacts when he rips the tag off couches because it's "against the law" and then sings about following the rules soon afterward, vomits during imaginary sea voyages, closes up to your screen to warn you about bunnies, and is afraid of everything?
    Back on topic:
    -The set of bootleg GameBoys looked like Tiger Electronics handheld games from the 90's than what they were supposed to be. Imagine how dissapointed a 90s' kid who received that instead of a GameBoy for Christmas could have been!
    -That real-life Mario Kart looks awesome! I would like to see someone make more real-life Mario Karts someday. Maybe Nintendo could make coin-operated ride-on Mario Karts that would appear in shopping malls or other such places, or even a real-life Mario Kart speedway attraction at an amusement park that could use carts like the one in that eBay auction you showed us.

    This time, my favorite part was that Game Kid/Game Child thing. Stuart Ashens has made a movie about a quest for one of those things and recently reviewed them.

    While I was working at Goodwill last summer, someone donated one of those Little Mac gloves. It was easily one of the best items we got in.

    I still wish I had bought it, though the $100 we were charging was a bit too rich for my minimum wage wallet.

    You should get that EBTV DVD. Maybe there'll be lots of stupid stuff on there.

    Did you know there was actually an Windows 98 (unlicensed) game for the NES (most likely Famicom, because there's Chinese text)

    This one has the SEGA TeraDrive, I already know about the IBM-Mega Drive 2-in-1 thing.

    Did you hear about the guy who hated Rosalina so much that he bought a huge amount of them specifically so her fans couldn't have any? (And he plans on doing the same thing for the amiibos of folks like Zero Suit Samus, Lucina, (female) Robin, and Palutena for the same reasons.) He makes babyguess143 seem tame in comparison.

    (In case you think I'm kidding, several video game websites have actually reported on this:
    Man hate-buys Rosalina & Luma amiibo in bulk so fans can't have them - Destructoid.)

    You got a job? Huh, nice dude. Anyway, how did that first guy manage to get so many copies of the Jurassic Park SNES game he managed to fill up an old fridge? And concerning that PS3, there's something to be said for simplicity. The PS2 makes me want a pack of Juicy Fruit. Also, they're making Starburst Juicy Fruit now (Mars and Wrigley merged a couple of years back).

    My sisters and I used to have Mario chairs like those, but with blue cushions instead of red.

    Those SNES/Nintendo pens were also given to the people who sold Nintendo products (as in the actual sales person) I think this practice may have started in 1990/1991.

    Whatever happened to this? I'd like to see more odd eBay listings.
