expiredRetro Toys 40% off: Pictionary $13, Lincoln Logs set $18, Rock ’em Sock ’em Robots $12, more

As part of the Gold Box Deals of the Day at Amazon, you can  save up to 40% on select “Retro” Toys. I personally recognize most of these toys from my childhood, so instead of calling them Retro, I would prefer to call it a “classic” toy collection. All of the items ship free with Prime or on an order over $35.

Here are my picks from this classic collection:

We also found at Walmart the Backyard Discovery Cozy Wooden Playhouse for $67.83 shipped. That’s $63 off list price, $44 less than Amazon and the lowest we can find. It has wide windows, a swinging front door, tarp roof, and toy versions of a sink and stove.

Also on sale at Walmart:

The original NES Battletoads soundtrack has been immortalized in this epic new vinyl LP

Battletoads and vinyl records, two seemingly disparate items that have both seen a resurgence in popularity over the past few years. Now the two are coming together for one epic LP release courtesy of vintage collectibles company iam8bit.

Being shown off on the show floor at Comic Con 2015, the vinyl record contains David Wise’s soundtrack from the original release. The (amazing) art work you’re seeing on the exclusive Sound Chip jacket and Dark Queen gatefold is a limited run of 300 specially made for SDCC. You’ll also find a sweet looking green and yellow print centered with the Battletoads logo on the record itself.

For those who unfortunately won’t be making it out to San Diego this week, the $25 LP will be made available sometime after the show as well, but it will feature different artwork, according to reports.

Battletoads first debuted on the NES back in 1991, and recently found its way back into popular culture after rumors of a remake, an appearance in Shovel Knight and the upcoming Xbox One release of Rare Replay from E3 2015. The excruciatingly difficult beat’em up is also being immortalized alongside the rest of the Rare Replay titles in a limited edition art print by DKNG.  The 18 by 24-inch hand-pulled screen print goes for $50 and there is only 400 of them. Unfortunately it is unclear whether or not it will be made available elsewhere, but you can bet it likely won’t be hand-signed and numbered like these are.

PIXELKABINETT-1 In my house video games are required, per my fiancé’s request (obviously), to be in the basement and out of sight. I’m sure my love for Mortal Kombat’s skull shattering gore doesn’t help my cause, but it’s more than that. She also hates the ugly boxes and nests of wires that come along with gaming consoles.

Now, if I had the Love Hultén PIXELKABINETT 42 I have a feeling things would be pretty different. This full-size coin-operated arcade cabinet looks like a priceless piece of fine art and supports hundreds of classic games… expand full story
