Muchi Muchi Pork!

- PCB (wrapped in a blue baggie w/ pink bubblewrap)
- PCB Feet
- Manual A4 (monochrome copy)
- Instruction Sheet A4
- Instruction Strip (sticker)
- POP
- Piggy Mascott
- CD
- *A4 Promo Flyer
- *Poster
- Box (new style)

Shouldn't the Piggy Mascott and CD be marked as optional?  These were given out at AOU and to resellers for free, who then included them in some, but not all of their new kits, since they ran out of quickly.

They were included in all new kits from AMI, as far as I can tell. Even the very last batch that Fujita sold in spring 2009. I bought multiple new kits from different vendors (Tops, Fujita, Excellent) from 2007-2009, and every single kit had both the CD and piggy mascot inside the box. Not all of the brand new kits came with the poster or promo flier, however, which is why I consider those optional.

With that said, you can consider them optional if you like. They're nothing special really.

I received my piggy keychain and MMP promo flyer in a new Ibara Black Label kit.  I consider it optional.   >:D

Perhaps the piggie keychain was optional, but the CD was a part of the kit?

I thought the kit you bought last December did not have the piggy inside, but nice of them to rectify the situation afterwards for one of their top customers!  =D

Nah, they just forgot to send it. Which they later did (for free). The other two people I know who bought a kit from them at that time got the piggie keychain too.

Case in point: Fujita once "forgot" to send me the BOX for a brand new kit (Espgaluda II).  :laugh: Which, of course they also sent (for free) right after I notified them. Apparently some of the dudes in their shipping department aren't too swift.

For the sake of simplicity, I will mark the piggie keychain as "optional" with a question mark, as no one really knows. The fact they have been included with other kits (IKBL), as brentsg pointed out, further adds to the fishiness of the situation.

Pretty neat that the PCB has an HDMI output!

I wonder if all the outputs are enabled, or it's just a byproduct of the motherboard they used.

If a joystick mech could be rigged up and HDMI used, it would be fun to waste money on.  I wonder if it could be easily updated to the latest code?

I bought this Guwange marquee, and it came with a free instruction strip.  The marquee is original, but the strip looks printed.  I've never seen a strip for Guwange as part of any kit, so am curious if anyone knows if there was such a thing?  Despite the laser printer quality of the copy, it does look like a legit instruction strip.

Yeah, no strip, but that looks cool Dave. Any chance of a nice scan for us exclusive CSTG members?  :righton:

I could try to scan it, but I'm afraid its pretty poor quality print.  I'm more curious where it came from as it doesn't look like a homemade job.  Perhaps its something from a magazine article, or some kind of loc test art?

Its not Jamma, but JVS.  You need a JVS IO or Converter to play it, similar to Naomi or Type X mobo.

There is any official number about how many flyers Ketsui had from factory? I'm just missing those to complete my kit and that information seems to simply don't exist.

I uploaded a 300dpi scan here, but be warned, its pretty poor quality, being a scan of a print that was laminated and then folded in the middle. :P  If anyone has a clue as to where this might have come from, I'm all ears.

In the Akai Katana Onlineshop Limited ver. there is a strange textile bag with pockets on 2 sides. It's got exactly PCB-size but the PCB doesn't fit because the pockets are too narrow. Anyone got an idea what this is supposed to do?

It just houses the volume pot sword. Seems a bit big but I'm guessing it was the closest size available.

Ah that makes sense. So i can carry around the sword at conventions without having fear of accidentially stabbing someone.

I just obtained a NOS Espgaluda kit. 

The flyer pack has 50 flyers in it.. counted them.   :facepalm:

Also, on the bottom of the flyer pack was this letter.  I have no idea what it says.

Soo... are you going to sell them at 10$ each? Or how much did the kit cost you?  =D
