Still on the subject of Punch-Out!!, I don’t care if it’s pink but I want one of these:

Hoodie

A replica of the hoodie Little Mac wears during the famous ending scene in Punch-Out on the NES:

Has a game series ever seen such a dedicated fan-base? As if a Mother 3 fan translation wasn’t enough, there is also a fan-made guide. Initial preorders came with a free keyring gift but unfortunately I wasn’t quick enough for that. Handbook I can’t remember how much it cost exactly, but it was around £20 including international delivery and took just over a week to get here from America.  The print quality is excellent and the book is presented as a travel guide. It’s filled with full colour illustrations and fan art, as well as photo’s of models of the game’s characters and enemies specifically made just for this book. The cover sleeve actually doubles as a poster showing off most of these models. Another nice touch is the personalised receipt which is a hand-drawn scene from the game. All in all it’s an extremely well put-together guide that puts most official efforts to shame. The actual game ain’t half bad either. I’ve gone all trendy and created a Flickr account and you can see a few more pictures of this lovely book here.

I got this for free from SCEE. All you had to do was subscribe to the LittleBigPlanet UK YouTube channel and send them an email with your address. I was really surprised at the size and quality, it’s properly knitted and has an actual metal zip down the front – although unfortunately it’s sewn into place and doesn’t work. I won’t be chucking this on eBay like many others seem to have done, although I was tempted given the silly prices they are going for and some random on Twitter even offered to buy it for me.
