Some GTA Stuff for my Collection and a Little Teaser!

Hey! Hey! Found some good deals on a couple of GTA merchandise so managed to grab those to expand on my collection.

First some stuff from GTA Chinatown..
Chopsticks!
Actually they are Stylus Pens for the Nintendo DS shaped to look like chopsticks. I was under the impression that they were bigger, close to the size of real chopsticks but the seller showed some pics which made me realise they are much smaller. Got a very good deal on these, so nothing to complain about.

The Stylus Pens came in a set together with these Ziploc Bags.
Personally, I have never seen these prior to purchasing these. I have never played GTA Chinatown Wars before (the only GTA game I have never played, apart from the older top-down games), so I have no idea what these are replicas of. Were they supposed to contain something in the game? Something illegal perhaps? Fortune cookies? No idea, so do comment below if you know what these are for..

Great deals come in twos! Or so they say...

The same seller had some GTA San Andreas stuff  as well! 

A GTA San Andreas lighter and 3 Match-boxes or rather Match-packs...
Side-view of the Match-pack.. You can see the matches in there. Pretty cool additions to the collection and didn't have to pay a bomb for these so I'm happy with these.

Couple of stickers in the pack as well.
Of course, the wonderful stickers that Rockstar have made so popular. 

Hope you liked the pics.. but wait there's more! 

A friend of mine in US just sent a huge parcel over to me. He has been helping me collect shipments as some sellers did not want to post internationally. Got quite a number of stuff in there but I haven't had time to check them all out yet. Will be getting pics over the next few days and I will update my blog asap. Meanwhile, here's a little teaser..

Check back soon for the updates!

  2. I have been looking for that lighter for years! Can't believe I missed that...
    On another note I also paid quite a bit for one of those tiny ziplock bags recently, where did you get so many, they are rare..

    1. Wow! The seller had quite a few sets and were at a very good price.

      I got several of those ziplock bags. Seller had quite a few that I was a little worried about the authenticity of those. I personally have never heard or seen them before.

      I knew about the Stylus Pens. For the GTA San Andreas stuff, I have heard of them but never saw actual pics before this purchase :P

    2. You got a good deal mate,
      Your CW baggies look slightly different to mine (some look off-cut with a bit different locking seal)
      My friend in the US has tracked me down one of those matchbooks (possibly the same sellers items broken up) but having trouble finding that lighter. We both search online auctions for GTA merch daily.

      It's always good to meet other collectors, especially of GTA.
      Could we swap email addresses or something Juan?

      Regards,
      Sam

    3. Yea.. I see what you mean.

      Probably the same seller, he sold it in a set of 1 lighter, 3 matchbooks.

      I'm definitely open to keeping in touch with other collectors, one of the main reasons why I wanted to start a blog :) My email add is JVeron004@gmail.com. Feel free to drop me a mail, you can also add me on Facebook if you prefer. Link is on the "About Me" page. Cheers!

    4. Searching through some recent ebay US listings, and almost crying inside at some of the stuff I've missed because it hasn't shown up on my regional ebay (UK) even if you choose 'worldwide'

      San Andreas Cap went for $10 Buy It Now
      San Andreas Dice & promo CD - $40
      San Andreas x4 sets of 3 matchbooks & 1 lighter - $10-$20

      I offered the seller close over $100 for a lighter/match set and he still said he wouldn't post to Europe. :/
      He could've made $80+ more, I don't understand some peoples logic.
      It'd be great to find a US friend also who can ship me these 'US Only' auction items as it seems the last few bits I want to get are ending up in this category.

      I'll add up or email and Facebook Juan,
      Nice to meet you and your collection.
      (I have been reading this blog for a few months now)

    5. I bid on the San Andreas Dice & Promo CD, got outbid at the last few mins :( Really wanted that dice.

      They guy didn't want to post to Europe? He gladly posted to Singapore!

      Come join the forums at CollectorsEdition.org. I get some help from folks around the world who help me ship stuff. Very awesome place to hang out. Couple of other GTA collectors there as well.

      Nice to see you post here :)
