    Is barely interesting as 90's memories for the items themselves,I only had the Robin Hood one but when I bought my first console,SEGA Genesis, I istantly forgot these things. So,pass for me.

    Hah, I still have my Karate one and my Batman Game watch as well. I had no idea there was a Transformers one, I’ll be picking this up regardless how awful it will be.

    Still need an R-Zone and Panzer Dragoon as well. Maybe they’ll reissue those too.

    I am deeply unashamed of how bad I want these. My sister and I had a literal drawer full of them as a kid, including the G2 one (which was my dream since it was the only Transformers game available for a while) and that Sonic 3 game, and I have no problem buying them again as a man in my 30s.

    As a fan of garbage video games, I gotta get that Transformers G2 LCD Game. Not only does it look super cool, but I really have to play it.

    I remember having an LCD handheld themed around the board game Operation that I played all the time that I found quite fun. Unfortunately, pretty much all the other LCD games I have ever owned were quite bad. If I hear good things about the games themselves, I might pick these up.

    It's good as a piece of early 90s nostalgia, but I did not have very fond memories of these things and the shrill beeping kept hurting my ears. That being said, I wouldn't mind picking up the new version. Not so much for the game play, but I'm loving the presentation and the art around the screen.

    This was my thoughts exactly when I saw this. AVGN should do a review on these new releases.

    I remember these tiger games, I had a few myself, weren't these like 20 bucks a pop back then? Nice to see the price goes down on these things :p

    Had several of these as a kid and they were a lot of fun. None of my old ones for sale yet, but preordered the sonic game out of sheer curiosity. Wonder what they mean by “inspired” by the originals and curious to see how they will differ

    I had the Pinball and a racecar one in the late 80's...

    I vaguely remember them being like $5-6 bucks at K-Mart?, lol. :p 

    And I do remember trading them to borrow with other kids at recess, lol.

    First NERF getting the Halo license, now this?

    ... Wow... I can make so many jokes right now but I keep coming back to "Did Goldner lose a bet?"

    Oh man! I had the Sonic 3 one, Double Dragon, Ninja Gaiden, Pinball... And probably a few others I've forgotten! I may have to get the TF one... They were terrible, even then. My firglst Game Boy made me forget all about them, but nostalgia is a powerful blinding force.

    Yes! I'm shocked I never saw the original. I had a Shaq game I played a ton and WWF one that was a little bigger that was pretty fun.
