This is not a drill. This could be our last chance to get our hands on that adorable little NES Classic console.

Are you one of the millions of people who were disappointed by Nintendo's poor supply chain management of the NES Classic console. ThinkGeek has NES Classic Edition in stock right now, but only if you buy a bundle. There are 6 total bundles with prices ranging from $139.99 to $219.99. U.S. sales only and bundles are limited to 1 per customer. ThinkGeek released the following statement:

"DRINK AGAIN FROM THE NOSTALGIA FIREHOSE!

We were bummed when we heard that Nintendo halted production of the NES Classic Edition and had no plans to produce it again. After Nintendo shipped the last of them back in April, we shed a tiny pixelated tear and waved a fond goodbye. But then one of the buying ninjas at GameStop revealed they'd gotten their hands on a supply (sometimes it's good to have Corporate Overlords). Timmy thinks it involved some big Colombian banana cartel, but we don't ask questions of the ninjas in Grapevine. Mostly because we can't ever find them.

But wait. There's more. Literally. With your super-awesome, hard-to-find, not-marked-up-on-eBay NES Classic Edition you're going to score some bonus Nintendo goodies."

      Their parent company apparently hoarded some specifically for bundling. I'm not going to support that.

          Yeah, sorry. Wasn't trying to be mysterious about it, just thought it was well known.

          Yeah, they're trying to reorient away from used game sales and into retro/merch sales. Judging by the volume of stupid shit I see my 'retro' friends buy, they're gonna do fine.

        I thought the $220 bundle would have held on a bit longer, but nope

          I'm kind of surprised they didn't just sit there. Wouldn't have guessed people would want to pay around the same price as some of the ebay listings I've seen and get a bunch of extra junk they don't want.

      I'm not buying one cause It's Not My God Damn Nostalgia, Understand Monkey Boy? But that Tetris lamp is still pretty cute, and totally available separately. It would be a nice lamp if there was no such thing as Tetris.

            They should make it so complete horizontal lines turn off. That way, if you want to use it as a lamp you need to be shitty at Tetris.
