I had a gift card to Best Buy (leftover from Christmas) and there was only $8 left on it. About a month ago, all of the Animal Crossing Amiibo went on sale there, and suddenly I knew what I was going to spend my $8 on! 😉
Now, as you all probably know, I am a huge fan of Animal Crossing. However, when the Animal Crossing Amiibo all came out, I abstained from buying most of them. I got Isabelle and Digby, but only because they came with Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival. I LIKED the Amiibo well enough, but I try to only buy figures that I REALLY love, and none of those particular characters were my absolute favorites. But I can’t resist a good deal, and when I see Amiibos dirt cheap, I have to get them! 😉
I ended up getting Mabel and Tom Nook, both for $1.99 each…
And the set of Cyrus, K.K. Slider (okay, I do really love him), and Reese for only $3.99!
I’m pretty happy with my purchases! While I was there, I found this ADORABLE Mimikyu box set that I couldn’t resist:
Mimikyu’s story just breaks my little heart! Apparently its true form is so ugly and terrifying, it can’t show itself or people will die or something like that. So it puts on a rag to make itself look like Pikachu so it can make friends. 😦 Anyway, this set came with a pin and a special Mimikyu trading card.
Here’s a close-up of the pin, just because it’s so damn cute!
It also came with 3 booster packs! Now, I haven’t purchased Pokémon cards in a long time, but it was still fun to get these and open them up! Each pack came with 10 cards- 8 Pokémon cards and 2 trainer cards.
Here’s what I got from the first pack (Fates Collide)…
the second pack (Sun & Moon)…
and the third pack (also Sun & Moon).
I normally don’t keep “trainer” cards because I don’t actually play the card game, I just like to collect all the Pokémon! 😉 I did keep the Ultra Ball trainer shown in the third pack though, just because it looked fun and shiny!
On a subsequent trip to Best Buy, I bought this:
I love Mario Party games even though they can be extremely aggravating, and I own all of them. It’s my dirty little secret! Actually, I was thinking about planning some Mario Party posts, so stay tuned for that! 🙂
And just because it’s nice to treat yourself sometimes, and I’ve had a really shitty year, I bought myself a couple cheap things on Amazon. 😉 The first is Persona 4: Golden for the PS Vita!
Since I started playing Persona 4: Dancing All Night and realized that iT was semi-sequel to P4G, I figured I needed to start at the beginning and play P4G first! I’m so looking forward to diving into this game.
I also got the Super Mario Adventures comic book!
In case you aren’t familiar, Super Mario Adventures comics were actually first published in Nintendo Power magazines. This book is the entire collection of comics, and I can’t wait to read it! It’ll be a fun, easy read.
Also, this panel depicting a Boo biting Mario’s ass made me laugh way more than it should have:
Anyway, those are some more goodies I’ve acquired recently. 🙂
