Telltale Autumn Sale

Video Game Feelies

edited February 2013 in General Chat
I'm sure I'm not the only one who's been thinking about various video game feelies, with so many of us awaiting the Tales deluxe edition and voodoo cards, so I thought it'd be cool to have a thread to show off everyone's collections of video game feelies. I'm including homemade items and things that aren't technically feelies but are close enough.

So here's my collection. Conveniently enough, the Monkey Island feelies are both homemade, the TF2 feelies are both close enough, and the others are actual feelies.

Clockwise from top:

Feast for the Senses Menu/Map: Read all about it here.

Dead Ringer: It may not be exact, but not only was this pocket watch nearly perfect for my BLU Spy costume, it was also very cheap. A win-win!

Eon Ticket (Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire): This is one of the coolest concepts for a feelie. Essentially, Nintendo distributed an e-Reader card with the Eon Ticket printed on it which would unlock the corresponding item inside the game. The e-Reader may suck, and the ticket may just be a card, but being given an item for your game in the real world is awesome.

Paper Voodoo Doll: The pins have been replaced with magnetic push pins sticking it on my dry erase board.

EVE Hypo: A replica from Bioshock. Looks awesome when turned on in the dark.

Ocarina of Time: From Songbird Ocarinas. It's tiny, the holes don't match the game, and it can't even hit the corresponding note for top-C in the games (preventing me from playing Zelda's Lullaby, Epona's Song, the Minuet of Forest, the Sonata of Awakening, the New Wave Bossa Nova, the Elegy of Emptiness, the Oath to Order, and most infuratingly, the Song of Storms), but at least it's an Ocarina. Still, I'd like to get one from STL Ocarinas.

Butterfly Knife Trainer: Also for my BLU Spy costume, it's an almost perfect replica of the one in the game, but with the added bonus of being convention safe and unable to cut me (though I did do a very good job of not getting cut when using my friend's real knife).

And here's a picture of the EVE hypo lit up in the dark.

    Do figurines or little branded items inspired by the game but not necessarily "from" it count for this thread or not? I might round up my junk some time tomorrow night and take some pictures of it all.

    Haha. Wow. I have that same EON Ticket.

    Sure.

    Lemme guess, Nintendo Power?

    Sure.

    Hmm, I guess I can include pictures of all of my huge MMO collector's edition packages then, also.
  • edited June 2010
    Damn. Well if I want to take a picture of it all that means I need to find it and finding it will be the hard part. It's scattered everywhere in my room and I might end up just posting a list of the stuff I have. Things like the Resident Evil 5 feelies I have are easy to find and my Fatal Fury hat is easy too but I don't know where some of my stuff is. I guess I need to go searching.

    Yeah, I love stuff like this. I have that same ocarina, and yeah it was a bit of a disappointment, especially given that it felt like a lot of money at the time.

    If we're counting home-made items, then I suppose this is the prize of my current collection, although I still want to redo it.
  • edited June 2010
    That is AWESOME. Also, I can't believe I forgot my other homemade feelie. And it's a big one.

    I'm still pretty certain that hitting someone with a big key wouldn't be a very effective combat strategy.
  • edited June 2010
    It works because it's a magic key, duh.

    Seriously, you're right, but isn't the Final Fantasy weapon rule that the cooler it looks, the more powerful it is? I know some may disagree, but the Keyblade is pretty awesome, especially some of the more powerful ones.

    Now credit where credits due. You had help on the right one. Actually of the two painted ones that we made as a group I still can't believe I accidentally broke the King Mickey one. I still feel bad about that.

    If it actually had a blade, maybe. But it's literally just a big key. :p

    Well, maybe it's got a really small razor-sharp edge on the side of the rounded part. You don't know!

    I never claimed I built them all by myself. The one on the left was done by me and Jess before we started hanging out with you guys, the one on the right was done by you, me, her, and that one guy. And we plan to start doing more of them. But I should probably try and finish this one first. I still need to find another way to make keychains.

    I thought the rule was the more impractical the weapon the more powerful it is? Seriously, what does a gunblade shoot? Does a sword hurt more when loaded with bullets? And swords the size of a Mini Cooper are not only impractical but for some reason common place. Oh well. I should've made one of the Celebrity Jeopardy categories Impractical Weapons.
  • edited June 2010
    I still think I'm right. It seems that the rule they follow is the cooler it looks, the more powerful it is, and the theory they base it on is that the more impractical it is, the cooler it looks.

    Also, the Keyblade was originally supposed to be a chainsaw, but Disney didn't like it, so Nomura had to change it.

    I know I was just throwing in it was a group effort. As for the left one, yes that was just you and her but I did do the retrieval for it when it was hostage. And I know that we had plans to make most of the keyblades but I didn't know we had rebooted anything there. Was it decided this weekend or a conversation between you and that guy? Just curious mainly because that would make for good group activities. At least I think it would.
  • edited June 2010
    Getting back on topic, do game shirts count? I mean the stuff that you got for pre-ordering and not just something that you could have bought in a store. I have way too much pre-order reservation stuff.

    Jess and I discussed it two weeks ago and talked with Cory about it yesterday at dinner. Cory agrees that he'd like to start doing that sort of stuff again, and we all had ideas for other things we'd also like to try building.

    Well, when I started the thread, I was defining "feelies" as real world replicas of in-game items, but I'm okay with it turning into a video game collectibles thread.
  • edited June 2010
    Those keyblades are cool. I made a couple attempts at making Zelda swords myself, but they never ended up looking very polished.
    Getting back on topic, do game shirts count?

    I think, based on the theme of the thread, shirts fit into the world of the game might count, but shirts with just characters or logos on them might not count. Feel free to share though, because cool is cool.

    Like I have this shirt somewhere. I'd take a picture of my own but I believe it's lost at my mom's house somewhere.

    Well if we're going for things that are more a real world translation of video game items or theme I'm okay keeping it as such. I don't see the need for me to hunt down every shirt I have if it wasn't the intended idea.

    As for the other point there. That's awesome. Sorry for taking off but my family decided to do a Father's Day thing that day and told me that day. Hope you guys had fun though. Asked Cory how his weekend went and didn't get a response.

    I'll link a couple but I have a lot and I don't know where they all are. In honesty several of the games I haven't played but I have stuff from them because I knew people that worked at GameStop.

    After a short search I might need to find these shirts tomorrow because finding a link to them might actually be more work.

    Clutching your set of keys in your fist and punching an assailant is very effective, on the other hand.

    I don't have any video game freebie, but I have a children's book that's actually part of a manga and was sold with the first edition of the last volume. So you get the book featured inside the book. In French. And I have it.
    That's really the only thing I have and even that is translated and with logos and stuff so not as cool as it could be.

    Now that I think about it, I guess my Tales of Beedle the Bard is a book-within-a-book Harry Potter feelie.

    I was thinking about it too! I have it as well, the collector edition with a ridiculously huge fake book containing a tiny real book.
  • edited June 2010
    Heh, that's awesome. I just have the regular tiny book, but it's still pretty cool.

    I want to get that one too. I haven't even read it yet, I'm afraid of damaging it >.>
    I wanted to get the Canadian pocket versions of the HP books (paperback sized with the adult covers) but out of the blue they decided they wouldn't publish the last book. Ugh! Glad I waited until they were all out...
    And the British edition is just too big, almost as big as the hardcovers. I wanted tiny versions for re-reading easily...
    Oh well. I haven't been re-reading them much anyways.

    Not really a feelie, but it is based on an in-game item.

    Also, almost unbearably adorable. Luckily I have a high tolerance for adorableness.

    what is it?

    i suppose the only things i have that count as feelies are the feast of the senses map, the season 2 case file, and a home made rubiks cube companion cube... That's all I can recall right now...

    the feast of the senses map

    I was really hoping someone else had made one, and this is the first time anyone's ever mentioned having done so. Awesome!

    It's the eponymous Chocobo and "dark book" from Chocobo Tales. It's basically a mini-game collection with a storybook aesthetic and baby Chocobo player character.
