Auction: Rockman 5 Password Kit
Here’s a neat piece of merchandise I’ve not come across before. This is a Rockman 5 password kit, released back in 1992. It's a batch of memo pads designed specifically to remember your Rockman 5 passwords. Each pad is accompanied with cute Rockman and Blues markers, used to copy down the color dots from your game. Pretty cool, if I do say so myself.
I never particularly enjoyed recording Mega Man 5 (or Mega Man 3) passwords. Jot a password on paper incorrectly — failing to note which color went where — resulted in quite a few headaches. I can see why something like this would be useful.
Right now the set is being auctioned off on Yahoo Auctions for a measly 1,000 Yen (roughly $9.93 US). A great value if you're looking to add a quirky, but unique piece of merchandise to your collection.
