OK, here is a collection of Mine that is very dear to Me and long over due. It is My prestigious Video Game merchandise collection! Now, what is in store here is first I will show off My glorious strategy guides & kompanions then after that I will showcase My video game inspired action figure collection!

Mario Mania & Street Fighter II: Turbo! These were My 2 first ones ever in 1992/93! My Grandma got Me both of them a Blockbuster Video during the heyday of "true" video rentals and when I was an avid game competitor at My local store. I just love these books because of the pictures and all of the history within them. I followed & read these countless times to help Me out when I wanted to get better at SF on the SNES & Sega Genesis or when I wanted to find that secret level in Super Mario World on the SNES! You had to do this because during these times there was no web and look it up or go to YouTube. This is when classic gaming was arguably at it's best!

Mortal Kombat 1 (1993) Kompanion: My Grandma got Me this at Blockbuster sometime later after the Street Fighter one. This a rather smaller sized book compared to all the rest that I have and it is really different as well. I love pics within it and it has all of the versions of the game as well that was on all of the major consoles including the handheld ones at the time. One thing that I really love and think about all the time is how the book describes the gore aspect and the restrictions on the SNES compared to the Sega versions. This is when Nintendo was all parental protection for kids thus "truly" starting the ESRB rating system we all know today Surprised

Mortal Kombat 1, 2 & 3 Kompanions (93/94/95)! Now, these are much different than the previous one and are My preferred type of guide. They are more deluxe arguably even more so compared to My Mario Mania & Street Fighter ones! The art is uncanny, it has all the button combos and secrets you'd expect to be in there. My absolute fave of the three is MKIII with out question as it is My fave MK game of all-time! Notice the pics I took, these are some of My favorite moments they provide! My Grandma got Me MK1 & MK2 at Blockbusters but My Grandpa got Me MK3 at Sears where he worked...more on that later! One more thing, IMO these were from the greatest times of video games when they were "still" games, had button combos & secrets and they were simple with no DLC and all of this complicated stuff over the past decade and a half or so now. Having these books always reminds Me of this "almost forgotten great" video game era Exclamation

Mortal Kombat 4 guide! This is a good book but it was really a special magazine type of program at your local newsstands. My Grandma got it for Me at our local Schnucks. It's really cool but the quality kinda sucks but it has all the fighters in it plus the secrets bounce

Mario 64 Guide: Got this one but I must say I never really used it because I never really played Mario 64. I just never got into it as much as I did Mario Kart 64 for the N64 but it's a great book none the less.

WCW/nWo Revenge, Castelvainia 64 and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil! Oh man, these are My faves. As you can tell I was a Nintendo 64 guy. Yeah, I chose that over Saturn & Playstation (I loved Sega Genesis however and of course NES & SNES) before My long game console hiatus till the 2010s. So let Me tell ya, 1998/99 was some time for Me game-wise. I remember the hype of these three games especially Turok 2. My Grandparents & Mom got Me these games for Christmas & My Birthday. I was so stoked about all of them. I played Revenge countless times, I thought it was way better the previous game entry and it had such a large roster and wow that intro. Castlevania 64 was so different compared to the prior entries and I loved the music and overall story but gosh, Turok 2 was so much more than what I thought it would be. I liked the first one but it was nothing IMO compared to the sequel. Since then I have considered Turok 2: Seeds of Evil one of the greatest video games ever made and has one of the all-time best musical scores as well! So, with that being said, shortly after I got them, My Grandpa got Me the three strategy guides at his work at Sears (He would get Me many other video games there as well as they were on the next floor above his department...gosh I loved it when he surprised Me with Star War: Rogue Squadron for the N64) and this has always been one of My most cherished moments of him when it came to him getting Me gifts that I wanted/needed. I just love these books, the way they feel, the screenshots, characters & enemies and everything about them. These are some of My most favorite books in My arsenal of any genre Shocked Cool

So here we go with the actual action figures in My collection. Unfortunately, some I'll showcase I only have a bit of while other series' I have a lot of. So here we go with the first entry!

The Primagen from Turok 2: Seeds of Evil by Playmates! Playmates has always been one of My favorite figure companies since the original TMNT line. Sadly I never got thier Tomb Raider series but I only got 1 figure from their great Turok line however and he's the big bad Insectoid boss from the second game. He looks really authentic to the game material. I love his weapon and sculpting and paint wash. He has several POA and includes a really nice clear blue stand.

The Card: I think it's really great work and detail. Like I said, I only got one figure from the series. It wasn't a massive one however but to this day I really regret that didn't collect them faithful much like the Tomb Raider series Rolling Eyes Check out that K-B Toys price sticker, ah the days when action figures where action figures, you could have a "real" toy hunt and not to mention they were really affordable compared to today's beyond insane market Shocked
