Video Game Feelies

posted by GuruGuru214 on - last edited - Viewed by 3K 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.

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

    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.

    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.

  • @Pale Man said: I'm still pretty certain that hitting someone with a big key wouldn't be a very effective combat strategy.

    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.

  • Heh, that's awesome. I just have the regular tiny book, but it's still pretty cool.

  • @GuruGuru214 said: 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.

  • Oh my, that's so adorable. *melts into a puddle on the ground*

    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 Highway said: 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!
