Most of my collection can be seen on my flickr account.


Original Post:
Hello friends!
I have an exciting new collector's item to share with you (figuratively speaking of course). Just a few weeks ago, along came an affable Italian collector to answer the call of the WTB post I made nearly a year ago on these forums. The result:





Finally...!

Essentially brand new. Not "sealed," but never used and rarely unpacked/handled. As close to flawless as I ever could have hoped for (the DS Lite itself is immaculate)...I would have been more than happy with a complete set in just rough condition, but I got lucky this time.

You have a lovely Nintendo collection. That silver Phantom Hourglass DS is a real beauty.

The Legend of Zelda themed Wii U is really nice. I like the accents on the game pad.

Is the 18K plated stylus official? I would hate to put that to actual use.

I really admire your Earthbound collection. Are there any other Nintendo franchises that you would like to collect for?

Why thank you! Very much appreciated.

It isn't. It was made by i-CON for no particular reason, or at least not a Zelda-related reason that I'm aware of, and you can see its retail box here which has no Zelda art or any mention of Zelda anywhere on it. I bought it because I had the gold Zelda DS Lite and was playing Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks on it, and the 18K plated stylus was of a much better quality than the plastic stylus that came with the gold DS Lite. So yeah I used the 18K stylus quite a bit, but I've sort of retired it now for fear of the gold plating rubbing off!

Again, thank you very much! No, no, two is more than enough for my wallet. In fact I haven't collected any EarthBound stuff in years so that I can fully devote my collection dollars to Zelda. Looking back on my EB collection though, it tempts me to get back into it. There's still some guides and soundtracks I could want, not to mention the Mother 3 bundle that came with a limited edition Game Boy Micro. That one sells for like $700 though.

By the way, if you haven't played EarthBound, and I know most people probably haven't, it just came out a couple months ago on Wii U Virtual Console. So now's your chance!

Thanks for the comments!
