We've all been to a game-con or an analog at some point. What's some random swag that you still actually use? It could be a shirt - almost all of my swag game shirts are now my work/gym shirts, which is convenient.

I also just found a keychain I haven't seen in a while, and while there's plenty of goodies on it (nameplate from friends in Hawaii, small light) there's also a... Brutal Legend flat figurine. That sure was something.

Also, pics = props.

Have we? Have we really?

I got this shitty box thing from Nintendo, I will post up a pic tomorrow for props. I also have a whole bunch of game shirts and I use them for when I need a shirt I know I don't care if it gets grungy.

We've all wandered past a KB Toys at some point and drunkenly thought that fully-articulated Sephiroth was a good idea.

I buy a decent amount of collectors editions and stuff, so I do have me some junk.

Only thing that's actually useful though is the lockbox that came with the special edition of Grand Theft Auto 4.

Found that quite handy.

Forza 3 keychain that came with the collector's edition is still connected to my keys. I even got a new car and moved it over. I also still have the flash drive that was included with it and it is probably the most reliable flash drive I have. 
 
That's it.

My brother still uses his too. That lockbox is actually pretty good. Or I guess pretty not-terrible if we go by the standards of collector's edition pack-ins.

You are a good person for not calling it SHWAG or SCHWAG.

I still pronounced it that way in my head, though.

I honestly don't think I have anything.
 
 
Oh, I have this TF2 poster that my roommate bought me a couple years ago for my birthday, I guess? I still haven't gotten around to getting it framed, though, so it's still in the packaging tube.

I have a gamestop rewards card and I spent some points on a poster of a game informer cover (borderlands 2, thought it would be the art for the game without any game informer nonsense I was wrong) and a Claptrap cinch sack that I use to ferry dirty laundry to and from wherever dirty laundry exists what needs carrying.
