DAILY GRAFFITI: SHY GUY EDITION
Just some Shy Guys carrying some well-known gaming trinkets including a Mega Man 1-up. This is actually pretty amazing. And look how tired the one in the front is. Bitch, you ain’t even carrying anything!

Starting Saturday, March 1st, you’ll be able to stream episodes of the Pokémon animated series on Netflix: Pokémon: Indigo League, Pokémon Black & White, and the movies Pokémon the Movie: Black—Victini and Reshiram and Pokémon the Movie: White—Victini and Zekrom.
Tempted to fire up some old epsidoes as soon as they go live, but I swear to god if I watch Ash set his Butterfree free one more time I just don’t think I can take it.
Real talk: Best oldschool Pokémon episode. GO!

Mega Man x Kidrobot Mini Figure Series
Kidrobot will be following up their successful Street Fighter line with a Mega Man series. No photos have been revealed yet, but my wild guess is that most of the toys will be a standard Mega Man sculpt with different colorways representing the different power-ups, like the palette swaps in the games.
This is pretty cool since the Munny platform already lends itself well to Mega Man’s design. I think for a lot of kids who grew up in the ’80s and then found out about customizing Munnys, their first idea was to do a Mega Man piece.
Albotas PSA: Bravely Default Collector’s Edition Still Available
Amazon may have sold out of pre-orders for the limited edition of the North American version of Bravely Default, but I did some scrounging and Best Buy still has it up for sale. Get in on that, quick. And before it gets to your doorstep on February 7, check out the free demo.
With officially licensed Uncharted figures under his belt and homages to PlayStation, Atari 2600, and Super Mario, it’s no secret that Erick Scarecrow is a big fan of gaming. His latest figure is based on the most misunderstood controller of all time, the N64. Erick flips the controller upside down to create a clever, skeletal face. We’ll be sure to post official photos once they surface.

Get Pokemon Y For $20
Toys “R” Us, you done FUCKED up.
I’m about 80% sure Toys “R” Us messed up the price on Pokemon Y with this ad, but they’re selling Pokemon Y for $20. You can view the ad online, and if they don’t honor the price mismatch, you can always go to Walmart or Target, walk up to the customer service desk, and ask them to honor the price match on TRU's mistake. The ad can be found here on page 4 and can be pulled up in any store to match prices.
Corrupted Super Mario 64 Is Super Trippy
Here’s some footage from a really tripped out/corrupted Super Mario 64 cartridge. It’s fun to watch and overall insane, and I’d love to actually play a version that runs this damaged. Peep the video below:
80’s Throwback Crew Neck from King of Games
The King of Games have released their latest sweatshirt based on classic Nintendo games. Surprisingly, this one’s a crew neck. I usually don’t like crew necks but since the graphic is so 80’s it totally works. It’s just over $100 and comes in three colorways.
Hit the link for the gallery of all the colors this fine garment is available in.
The Other Mario Movie
Not to toot my own magic flute, but I know a lot about videogames. But I had no idea a Mario Bros. anime existed.
Super Mario Bros.: Peach-Hime Kyushutsu Dai Sakusen! was released in 1986 and never made it out of its Japanese homeland. Directed by ex-Sanrio employee, Masami Hata, this was the very first film based on a videogame. It was first released in theaters (which is strange considering its 60 minute runtime) and then on VHS, never to receive a DVD version.
Need this in your collection? Unfortunately, all the coins in the Mushroom Kingdom couldn’t get you copy. Apparently the tape is even hard to find in Japan, let alone the West. Its Wikipedia page even claims it to be one of the rarest films of all time.
Someone must have gotten a hold of one though, since you can view its fansub on YouTube.
Fire Emblem: Awakening, $15 At Best Buy
Wow, this is a killer deal. Fire Emblem: Awakening is only $15 at Best Buy right now if you purchase it online. I don’t think I’ve seen this title at a lower price. The only thing is, you can’t ship the item to your house so it’s only available for in-store pick-up, which totally is 100% worth it at that price.
