Have you got any of these?

The Disney Magic Castle 3DS XL that's coming to Japan in July 2013 is just the latest in a long line of limited edition Nintendo handhelds. Indeed, Nintendo has been released limited edition handhelds since the Game Boy days, many of which have become rare collectors items.

50 pages? Is there something wrong with having 5 / 10 consoles for each page?

I've got the Famicon Micro. It's genuinely one of the most beautiful bits of kit I've ever owned. Unfortunately, I'm sticking it on eBay soon, along with most of my Nintendo stuff to pay for Uni costs :(

I would really like the Kingdom Hearts 3DS, and TWEWY Ds Lite. Two of my favourite franchises, my favourite developer.

What about the 3 limited 3DS that people won earlier this year?

I was planning on getting the white 3DS XL, completely forgot about the Monster Hunter 3DS. Might wait and see if they do a MH 3DS XL.

Have the Mario 3DS (the club nintendo one). I think I have a couple of those Pokémon ones, or my cousin's do. Love the Ace Attorney, TWENTY, and Astro Boy ones. There sure is a lot of branded ones.

I used to have the Guitar Hero DS, but I sold it to get money for the 3DS at launch. Wish I still had that one instead of my sister's old DS (still works though, and I can do Pokemon transfers).

Only 1... I've got the mario anniversary edition dsi xl! Even though i had mario bros i still managed to get it for christmas 2010! I'm glad i got it. It looks real cool and i would play NSMBW butonly use the power-ups on the front of the console. And i also watched an unboxing by a french guy that didn't commentate and i watched that about ten times leading up to xmas.

Some cool looking consoles. But other's are really unexpected. Who would of thought of a Toyota and Tommy Hilfiger Game Boy?! :lol:

There's a few Game Boy Color consoles and the Astro Boy Game Boy Light which show an exposed front so you can see the circuits, chips and batteries etc. Around 15 years ago, a Game Boy Pocket with the same design was considered a limited edition console and somewhat rare because to my knowledge it was only available as part of a bundle. (I got it as a birthday present and it came with F1 Race and Alleyway)

Thats weird, I was checking this article much earlier, and it had 50 pages with a picture and description on each, but now, they're all gone, the pages I mean, not the screenshots.
As you can tell, I like the 3DS. A lot.

I don't have any special edition consoles, all of mine are the ones I bought on launch and I've never had to replace a console. Well, except my red original GameBoy (not sure if it was launch colour) which came bundled with Dr. Mario and a black and red Nintendo wallet.

I do have the GB Micro, which is quite rare to see considering the format was basically dead when it launch due to the DS being out earlier that year...and the fact that it wasn't an upgrade purchase because it offered nothing new, and actually made the screen smaller. I was always disappointed that the promised interchangable faceplates never took off in this country. Although I always thought mine was gonna snap whenever I tried to take it off...

I have seen a kid at a mall with the first DS, y'know, the Mario one. I own the Palkia + Dialga DS, my mom owns the Triforce-only DS, my brother got the Mario DSi XL, and I know a guy with the black Zekrom + Reshiram DSi.
Obviously got NSMB2 midnight of August 19th (hence the name)

Some of these are really, really cool, such as the Triforce DS and Snake Eater 3DS. If only I had money to spend on multiple versions of the same console...
