Nintendo Fan Club News

June 28, 2012

Did you catch that part in the NIntendo Power post a couple of weeks ago about Nintendo Fan Club News?  I had never heard of NFCN before then, or if I had, I had forgotten it.  I only remember Nintendo Power today.  But I guess NFCN was out there.  Here’s a video from somebody who knows more about it than I do.

NES Control Deck Boxes

June 3, 2012

I talk in ANESthetized about the box my Nintendo Control Deck set came in.  You can partially see that box in this picture.

If I blow it up and rotated it some, it comes out like this:

That box made a huge impression on me.  But it was not the only box the Control Deck set came in.  There were several others.

This one is close to mine but not quite. The Nintendo logo is in the wrong place and there isn’t some of the text there is on mine.

I believe this was a later version.

A slight variation on the previous one.

Dr. Mario? Really?

This one came with The Official Players Guide.

These weren’t even close to all the variations there were on this box.  And this set wasn’t the only NES set out there.  So there were lots of different NES boxes.  My favorite?  The one I got that Christmas Day, of course!
