    What happened to all that stuff when WD did close? 0-0

    This kind of stuff was sent back to Sony or packed up and stored at the WD warehouse. Lots of other stuff was thrown out. For example, we had thousands of posters and nowhere to store them, so to the recycling place they went. Just a single mint Dragon Force or LUNAR poster can go for $25 or more now. Best not to think about it.

    Oh man, that brings tears to my eyes. I'd always hoped you had just stuck them away somewhere because I remember you giving out some freebies occasionally when people bought stuff. But I'd had filled my house with them if I just knew they were getting tossed in the bin. I picked up a Lunar hint guide poster and an Arc one from Kelly a couple years ago, but there are lots of others that are just so hard to find now. I'd assume you at least have the original assets so reproductions could be made in the future if the licensing was worked out.

    I hope you didn't toss the pins too, those are one of my favorite collectibles WD did.

    I kept *some* stuff, but there was an overwhelming amount of stuff, so lots of it was just recycled. Some of it I wish I had kept more of, but at the time there was simply no room.

    Oh, no, small stuff like pins I kept because I could store them easily. I have a personal collection of all the pins, and bulk quantities still for most of them.

    Hahaha, that's totally me too. Looking back that was crazy on my part, but yet I've still got my original guide with the coupon still attached. Eventually I found a copy of the poster for sale from Kelly and picked one up, they're just beautiful and I never realized what I was missing until I'd picked one up.

    Glad to hear it! Do you happen to still have the Vanguard Bandits pins in stock for the PSN special offer as well? I'd like to grab some for my collection since I think I've got all of them but that.
