I'm not sure that I would really call this a blog, more of a showcase. Since I am the Grand Poobah of Video Game Shriners, along with the Grand Poobah of Chozo Shriners, it dawned on me that I should make a centralized repository of all the
crap treasures that I amass as time goes on.
I'll probably add some picture of the current shrine to this post later, but this is where I'll put pictures of new stuff that I accumulate, rather than flinging it around the forum in other threads. Yes, fellow Sanctuary members, your prayers have been answered! For now I'll start this off with another post about a treasure that just arrived at my doorstep today.
For history's sake, I pulled the original images from the Temple that showed the original Shrine at our old house. Anyone remember?
Finally, for everyone's enjoyment, here are some pictures of the Shrine in its current state (be sure to click on each one to see it bigger):
Our main display wall (along with a multitude of children's movies). Note the 2013 Platinum reward framed above the fireplace.
A close-up of the console museum. The original GameCube is missing because it's hooked up to the TV (but a black one I picked up for $10 at a garage sale makes a good stand-in). Our Wii is missing because it functions as an Amazon Video box in the exercise room.
Plush-ville is located above the Metroid display area. Unfortunately I didn't realize that Toad was mooning me when I took the picture. He'll have a talking to.
The Donkey Kong Sanctuary, non-electric games section, and library. Waluigi is usually an adequate librarian, but he appears a bit worn out today.
The current home for all of our physical games, along with the Skylanders and various knickknacks. Race cars are parked above for security reasons.
Our outside wall is home to a couple of displays, most of which are full of stuff that we've had for a while and might even be present in the old pictures.
Sure to be Plant's favorite picture, more goodies along with the official Club Nintendo Poundcake Carrier.
The next wall, by the stairs, houses even more figures and some lenticular puzzles that we put together years ago and threw in some little frames.
Last but not least, here's where the action takes place.
