OK .. (cracking my knuckles... ;) )

This one is indeed a rare one, even to say a very, very rare one. This WWG is really called: Tomy Watchman Monster Hero and was released in 1982 only in Japan. There is also a handheld edition of this WWG (even has the same name!). The gameplay is exactly like the Nelsonic Pac-Man Joystick edition but with a slight difference: the sprites. Other than that, it's a almost perfect clone of the Nelsonic Pac-Man joystick version.

Check here:

394041

And the joystick has made by Nunzio A. Luce from Trenton, NJ. The joystick is patented under #4,395,134.

Enough ? (because my knuckles hurts) ;) :)

...And your bottom left Pac Man watch shows a PacMan character I've never seen before also!

Ah. The actual patent number. You really are hardcore...lol

DOH! Forgot to mention that the joystick version has two different frontplate (the Pac-Man character in fact).
Nice to you to notice that small variation, if not i wouldn't even have mention it. ;)

At least i'm hardcore to something (but not sex...darn! LOL!!!! ;) )

Hi.
Yea. I knew it had the 2 variations. I like the other one better, I think. It's just a little easier to see.

I made a mistake. I was looking at the ghost on the one in the bottom right and thought it was a different (3rd) pacman style.

Yea. I wish. Go back and scoop up all kinds of goodies!

Well the last PacMan like that when for $600 in auction format. It was from a friend of mine in NC. He was surprised it went to $600 and was worried if they would pay. They did pay and the sale went through fine.

I can't say what mine cost but I will say it was less than the $600 and the condition is much better!.

AARRGHH!!

Somebody actually bid $600 for a Pac-Man WWG ?!! This is ridiculous but your friend must have a smile on his face that would put a shame the Joker. ;)
That one of the reason that i'm not much collecting WWG, people bid way high. $600 smackers...that's at least 2 weeks of salary...OUCH!!! :eek:

Looks like Nelsonic WWG are catching up to Casio WWG in collecting status.

Hi.
I finally took this one out of the package. Yes a beaut! Best I've ever seen. All joysticks work, watch works perfect and no scratches.

I'm packing away all boxes and watch cases. What fun is a watch in a box? I packed them away and wrapped in clear plastic or large ziplocks. I'm gonna sell my large display cases.

I guess what I want is to have all watches in the new type display cases I bought from ebay here (I only have 2 so far)

Where are the pics ? :P

Hummm...those display cases are great looking but at $95, i would rather buy a library bookcase like this one: http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/40071788/#/83688210

And put x2 glass door or x1 glass door with a very small wooden border. This should cost around $150 but can put at least put 72 watches or 60 watches if i keep the last shelf for all the boxes/casings/manuals. But before doing that, i need to get rid of some stuffs like electronics games and video games since those are taking a heck of space in my computer/collecting room.

Hi.
Well that is sorta what I have already. Here's an older pic. It's more packed now.

http://gamewatchguys.com/watch_collection.php

I picked up2 at some auctions we used to go to. I made step up shelves so the watches in the back will be elevated.

I liked the mini cases because they hold a lot and might use less room. Hell maybe make a revolving platform or something.

I might bring them upstairs for the winter so this was the plan unless I can think of a way to keep them at least a little warm. We use the wood burning stove that is the next floor up so our heat is pretty much off. Down here it get's freezing and I think that's what may have damaged my no name watches. Any ideas on adding a tiny bit of heat to the display cases?

Might sound stupid but it's all i got. For the shelves you have now, a clamp on lamp or standing flexible lamp with those red heat bulbs for reptiles. And/or a heating pad under the watch cases. But if its too cold outside the watch case, the heat pad might cause moisture on the inside of case. Just thoughts. Hopefully it'll spark a better idea. It's too early in the morning.lol.

Thanks!.
I didn't think of a heating pad. Ideas...hmmm.
