The Sega 16oz. mug is covered in traditional Sega blue and features stylized versions of famous characters including Scorpion and Mortal Kombat, the SegaCD system itself and of course, Sonic the Hedgehog. The PlayStation 16oz. mug features controllers, Sackboy, Ratchet & Clank and an assortment of other PlaySation items. These mugs have a premium feel, and because they’re made of high-quality ceramic, they’re durable and microwave/dishwasher-safe so you’ll be able to enjoy them for a long time to come.
These are SO cool. The signature item from FanFit Gaming, the Neon Lights are perfect for a table desk lamp or as a wall mounted light. They’re designed to last a decade and don’t get hot, so they’re perfect for practically anywhere in your house. They come in Batman, the Triforce from The Legend of Zelda and many other options and can even be used as night lights, though they’re pretty bright!
The enamel pins are perfect for adorning bags, jackets or anywhere else you want to show off your love of cool things. They’re a good size, about an inch squared, and feature fun and sometimes even vulgar games sayings, graphics and more – including the dog from Duck Hunt with simply “F*** Off” and a Nintendo game cartridge with the words “Blow Me” on it, referencing the constant struggle to get games to work back in the day.
