Video Game Feelies

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 1.6K users

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.

    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.

  • @GuruGuru214 said: 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.



    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Those keyblades are cool. I made a couple attempts at making Zelda swords myself, but they never ended up looking very polished.

    @banishingseraph said: 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.
