Are You 'Effin Kidding Me?

No doubt about it, fans are hungry for the MegaMan 9 Press Kit. So hungry that they are willing to pay over a $1,000 dollars for it.

Ending at 23 bids, this $1,500 auction for the press kit is now on it's way to the lucky winner. Congrats. But seriously, in desperate economic times, who in the right mind would pay that much for a press kit? A kit containing an empty NES cartridge and an asset CD?

Yeah, the kit is made of pure win but come on, it's definitely not worth that much.

Sure, Capcom had it stocked at $2,000, but that was intended as a joke to scare off those who got a hold of the super secret URL.

Sorry guys, but this is just getting ridiculous. It's only a press kit. It's not like its a hard copy of the game.


  1. Also, the boxart is so ugly

    the famicom art is better

  2. Someone on Capcom Unity was saying that they were going to win each auction with the intent of screwing over the scalpers. i'm sure that's what you're seeing here.

  3. So people purchased it for this? Screwing actual fans in the process who really want it for their collection?

    I really hope that's true, asiansteev. I would really want to get my hands on one of them.

  4. Yeah, 0 feedback, probably not a genuine bidder. Good for the unity members, this pisses me off. If you don't want to keep it, don't buy it in the first place.

  5. That seller is one lucky bastard

  6. Imagine my surprise when I come here and see that post, the "lucky winner" you mentioned happens to be me. You're right,times are tough now and I was going to spend money for something superficial one last time before I cracked down and started saving all my money. I am a huge Mega Man fan, so I said what the hell and went for it. You're right though, it is ridiculous to pay that much, and a stupid move on my part. You were bidding against me? I hope you eventually got one.

    P.S It has 0 feedback because it is an entirely new account.

  7. ^
    Good to hear. Do you plan on opening it up? I'm debating what to do with mine?

  8. I'm having that same debate with myself, actually.
