Oh thank God...I tried to put a list together in 2005 and couldn't find any list online. Then I started looking at photos and piecing it together from that. I lost what I had done, and recently considered going to complete the set. Now I don't have to start that process over again. Thank you for posting this.....

That looks amazing!  Great work on this.  Just verifying but 285 was the last issue?

You bet!  The original thread at the 'other' site had some great development over the span of its existence, so this one will cut through a lot of that discussion and hopefully just lay everything out in a good orderly fashion. Now just to see what others can contribute that isn't already addressed.  .   .   .   .

So, IIRC, you could pick this up from magazine stands in some places and some times the magazine you got from the book store didn't have the same content as the subscriber copies.  I'm not 100% sure NP did this, but I seem to recall they did around the 100th issue, at least, because my first subscriber copy was the 100th issue and I wanted to be sure to get it because,  I think it did have something extra in it.

Anyway, this is probably making your work harder, but if my assumption is correct, you think you could add a "Subscriber Bonus" column, outlining what was the extra insert/item for the subs?

If we could identify any specific items like this, then sure, I can address them in the list no problem.  As it stands right now, the most obvious differences between the two on some issues were that they had different cover art between the two types of issues. 


Here's #280 as an example....

Also ETA:  I will try and get another column with release dates too so that you can see what issues were associated to what years...

Very nice. The amount of detail here is something I would have made had I gone down the NP rabbit hole.

I just updated the list with dates and as I did, I already found out a few things to change!  I'm way down the hole man.... don't do it!

I have a complete set, and I'd like to assist in contributing to this resource. I'm also a moderator over on the Nintendo Power Collectors FB page. I'd really like to see this list grow to something that anyone could use as a "1 stop shop" for the entire collection.

I know there were lots of variations on covers, especially when you get to the topic of "subscription reminders." I'm fairly certain that Nintendo ran renewal customers down a different line when gluing the covers to these magazines. We could almost use a separate pic column to display an example of a "renewal reminder" cover, as there many types of examples here, all the way from an insert inside the magazine, to a sticker on the front, to a paper reminder glued to the magazine binding itself.

How can I be made able to make edits to this topic? Or do I need to submit things directly to acidjaguar?

I recently rediscovered my NP magazines, and I found two posters loose. One of them I identified as the mario poster from issue 260 with the help of this list, but I can't figure out the other one for sure. It's a metroid poster with a 2010 copyright, so I'm guessing it came from issue 255 with the other m cover, but there's no posters listed for that issue. Does anyone know?

It's just a normal post, so you would need @acidjaguar to edit it.

I had this poster at one point.  I thought it may have come from the strategy guide possibly....?  But it would have to be loose because it doesn't have any attachment marks like a pull out poster would. 

I don't have any strategy guides from 2010 though. Also the mario poster I mentioned from 260 doesn't have any attachment marks either.
