Kickstarter Spotlight: NECA and 4K Media Inc. Exclusive Yu-Gi-Oh! Licensed Game Wallet

Chalk this up to something I wasn’t expecting to see and cool enough to deserve it’s own Kickstarter Spotlight. Entertainment conglomerate National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA), and 4K Media Inc., the newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today launched a Kickstarter campaign for a Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Art branded Game Wallet designed by a fan vote exclusively for Kickstarter.

This is a product designed by fans and funded by fans, an interesting strategy for NECA, a company known for products catering to niche, but rabid, fanbases. By gathering ijsight and opinions from Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, the two companies have ensured this is a product they want and looking forward to. This is crowdsourcing at it’s best, both in design and funding.

For instance, fans said the wallet should include:

  • Fits smartphones & calculators
  • Water-resistant ballistic nylon
  • Black exterior with ID-pocket
  • Nine interior card sleeves
  • High quality zipper closure
  • Mesh dice holder
  • Two pen holders

The Kickstarter tier rewards include two Standard Game Wallets and one Elite Edition Game Wallet, which will be limited to 520 units. Both versions of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Art branded Game Wallet are available exclusively on Kickstarter. Additional tier rewards include Yu-Gi-Oh! branded apparel, bags, key chains, lanyards, dog tags, pins, and more, all featuring some of the most well-known and beloved monsters.

There’s cool items here for Yu-Gi_Oh! and non-Yu-Gi-Oh! fans alike.

Best Pledge: $44 – Gets you the game wallet

Risk: LOW – Unless this thing blows up and some time frames get messed up due to scale, I think the issues with this will be minimal. I consider this about as safe as ordering the same products through their website if you could.
