So a few weeks ago I found out about the Goonies had a LEGO "game" created for their LEGO Dimensions platform. I've played LEGO games before so I was familiar with them and had to look at some game play to see if they did a good job of creating the game. After just watching an intro of the game where they did the movie intro in LEGO form I was sold. I bought the "level pack" of Goonies and looked into the other expansions they have.
So now I'm getting deep into collecting for the whole platform because LEGOs were to me what NES gaming was to a lot of you guys. Sure I had an NES growing up but honestly I probably spent more time playing with LEGOs as a kid than gaming. As an adult I don't get the same enjoyment as I did when I was a kid. But I still have a soft spot for LEGOs which marries well with the LEGO Dimensions franchise. I was just course to see if any one else collects for this now dead platform or has some experiences to share of it. I think I missed the big discount pricing of LEGO Dimension but I'm still finding some decent buys. Nothing too expense that I can't see eventually buying. But like regular LEGOs once something gets discontinued the prices start to pick up. It's cool how LEGO shows what specific LEGO blocks have been discontinued as either they were made specific for LEGO Dimension or other LEGO sets that may of used them are also discontinued.
Anyway I just remember see this on the selves in the stores and writing it off as a cash grab and not actually worthwhile. The whole thing seems to be 80% based on 90's kids so I'm looking forward to some tailor fan service for cash. As I play the games and stuff maybe I'll do a blog review.
Hell, let's expand it to cover anything Wii U kiosk related... a one stop shop if you will. Below the table is where you can find additional information, such as what TVs can be used to replace the OEM Lynx monitor, a list of demo discs, etc.. If you have information not listed in here, please let me know so I can incorporate it into this post.
The purpose is to collect a list of users that have one of the popular Wii U Demo Kiosk units.
If you own one and want to be on the list... post your info below...
If you want to receive the "Kiosk" Award, we are going to have to see pics (with your NA name in the pic).

What do you think?
I'm a Sega Genesis collector and only a hair's breadth away from a full CIB North American set. All I'm looking for now is a copy of Normy's Beach Babe-O-Rama, specifically one with a good condition manual (a better condition box would be nice too, but the manual is the key part). If you have one and are willing to part with a copy, or have any leads on one, please let me know!
I'm willing to pay fair market price (negotiable) or to work out a trade from my growing collection of Genesis extras (I have a lot of stuff I'm in the process of selling off, most are complete & in good condition, inquire for better pics):
(N.A. residents are preferable for trades, international is always a hassle 😉)
Thank you for helping a fellow collector!
EDIT: Nevermind, found one!
The Nintendo Experience Wii U Kiosk Topper: I may have the only one that has not been destroyed. That is only because I had a friend that worked at Best Buy tell them they were taking it out to the dumpster but instead gave it to me.
This is from the 2013 E3 Event that was held at 89 Best Buy stores in the USA and 21 Best Buy stores in Canada. The Event is known as The Nintendo Experience - Only at Best Buy! The idea behind it was to bring E3 to the masses. Long lines formed at the stores that held this event. This sign stood on top of the Kiosk they used at the event!
There are many news articles out there as well as YouTube videos from this event. The display I am selling can be seen in the videos and News Articles. I can't even begin to imagine what this might be worth. Any help figuring out a price would be great! I am taking offers on this.
If anyone can prove me wrong and there is another one of these that survived please let me know.
Website with information about the event along with lots of photos of this display being used at an event along with some of the famous people that attended the event.
