    can you cut out the sweaty crotch and ass section of the suit for potential raffling?

    Nice! i donated $10 with my family a while back we were thinking of donating 30$ for the auograph but we are not sure we can afford it because of desperate times over here in england, i am saving with my own money and hope i can get my hands on one before the fundraiser is over 🙂

    If we paid for this entire movie, it had better blow our balls off! Not that I have any worry over that.

    This song must be in the movie, because Kitsune is totally awesome.

      @OfficialJab Sorry, but that version was just bland. :/

  • IgorGeek

    Just an advice, hire a band called ‘Anamanaguchi’ to make the soundtrack for the movie, that would be awesome! =)

  • JeramieKruger

    James, do you ever get a little attached to any of these pieces and hate to see them go? Do you keep any AVGN memorabilia for yourself… Something you just couldn’t part with?!

  • Staarscommando

    January 12, 2012 at 2:39 am

    James if you are still wondering about the Museum it is the Experience Music Project or EMP.

    I live in Seattle and next time you are here at PAX I’ll check out your panels.

    If im a new donor, donator? will i still get a special video? or is that over.

    • OldInsight

      January 12, 2012 at 5:49 am

      @lecon223 You’ll get the Special Video.

  • Brunken

    January 12, 2012 at 9:12 am

    I donated but still no sign of the video …

  • Kanped

    January 12, 2012 at 9:14 am

    Lol. ‘The handle’? Not a guitar player, are ya James?

    • MarkusRussak

      January 12, 2012 at 1:29 pm

      @Kanped it was a handle when he used it 😀

    If only I had the money.

  • Snejku

    January 12, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    You know what’s bullshit? That donations are being taxated, I believe James said a little while ago that a fairly large amount of the donations will go to taxes. That’s a damn shame.

    • NightPhoenix

      January 12, 2012 at 1:55 pm

      @Snejku Yeah he really should have waited until this year to start the donations!

  • NightPhoenix

    January 12, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Ok I am definitely going to donate snother $25 here when I get the chance. I wonder if that Nerd signature on the Top Gun game makes landing any easier? I like that we can check the IndieGo page to see how much you have raised, but will you be telling us how much you made off of the Paypal Donation phase that you did first? I gave to that but haven’t to IndieGo yet.

  • NightPhoenix

    January 12, 2012 at 1:57 pm

    I was just thinking… autographed NES controllers would be pretty cool prizes to give away!

    • gamez

      January 12, 2012 at 10:00 pm

      Who is this person impersonating April Rolfe. Its her pic that is showing when the “like” button is clicked on. @NightPhoenix

      • NightPhoenix

        January 12, 2012 at 10:21 pm

        @gamez I have no idea, it isn’t me…

  • johndoe777

    January 12, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    so what is the distribution plan for this movie?

    theatres? festivals, posted online?

    how do we watch it?

    • metalcommand

      January 12, 2012 at 3:36 pm

      @johndoe777 Watch the AVGN panel on the front page.

      • metalcommand

        January 13, 2012 at 1:17 am

        @[email protected] It’s interesting and it answers a lot of questions. It’s just a hint.

      • mrsleep

        January 14, 2012 at 12:33 pm

        @[email protected]@johndoe777 WTF? You want James to send you a personal message? He put the info out there, if you’re too fucking lazy to watch then, then you deserve not to know, you piece of shit.

    • NightPhoenix

      January 12, 2012 at 11:48 pm

      @johndoe777 The usual indie route… small theaters/festival tour and pray for wider distribution then Coming Soon to Videocassette and Laserdisc!

  • January 12, 2012 at 8:49 pm

    I planned to donate to this movie anyways, but now if I have a chance to win some awesome Nerd memorabilia, you’ll certainly be seeing my name on your contributors list.

  • Thrashing Deth

    January 12, 2012 at 8:56 pm

    The ninja GAAYYYYden outfit is pretty cool, I tell you what else is cool. That sword you used to slice the TMNT 3 movie, that be pretty cool to collect, then again I always did find swords to be fascinating art of weaponry.

    • MECHAGARY

      January 14, 2012 at 7:24 pm

      @Thrashing Deth I prefer the good old fashion sling shot. You can hit a guy, who’s holding a sword right in the balls at 30 paces. Swords are cooler looking though…

  • Olivania

    January 13, 2012 at 11:40 am

    James, it’s nice you are giving something back to the fans that donated. It shows us even more that you really care about fans. But if you take some items to sign and send them to the fans, you shouldn’t describe them as “bunch of crap”. XD

  • Lajike

    January 13, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    I just hope you’re gonna make the movie available in canada.

  • January 13, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    I Donated 30$ and i dont know if the signed featured item will be shipping internationally, outside USA.

    • Mistertoast

      January 15, 2012 at 5:06 pm

      @mawaad

      Send him cash, and write “because PayPal is BULLSHIT”

      You’ll be the total boss.

  • DoodleMongo

    January 14, 2012 at 4:35 am

    I would donate but i wouldn´t help much because the movie wouldn´t be shown in my country (GERMANY)

    • mrsleep

      January 14, 2012 at 12:28 pm

      @DoodleMongo Do you think that the movie will not be for sale on DVD? And that you could see it that way?

    • Mistertoast

      January 15, 2012 at 5:05 pm

      @DoodleMongo

      I’m german too, and I’m pretty sure, we’ll be able to import the DVD.

  • GregoryDGeorge

    January 14, 2012 at 9:22 am

    James, I saw a Facebook post by Nolan Bushnell the other day praising a site called http://www.kickstarter.com which helps people fund projects like this. As the AVGN, Nolan giving advice might be a good thing, yes?

  • WestBuiltAMountain

    January 14, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    ATTENTION JAMES/MIKE:

    Thought I’d point this out to you – Nintendo World Championships (Grey) is on ebay – incase you’re interested:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-World-Championships-1990-Nintendo-1990-/270893485735?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item3f12828ea7#ht_500wt_1156

    • WestBuiltAMountain

      January 14, 2012 at 7:19 pm

      Dang – got removed due to not being listed in accordance to ebay guidelines or something.

      Looks legit, though.

      • Mistertoast

        January 15, 2012 at 5:05 pm

        @WestBuiltAMountain

        Wow, you posted this instead of grabbing it yourself?

        ARE YOU JESUS?

  • Camo Yoshi

    January 14, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    I want that SNES.

    Oh and the museum that the Nerd is thinking of is probably the Experience Music Project (EMP).

  • tehspaz

    January 15, 2012 at 12:38 am

    So which camera will you guys be using? Still deciding? How about the ubiquitous 5D MkII? Please tell me it will be cinematic quality! I expect great things, best of luck!

  • fightgenie

    January 15, 2012 at 1:09 am

    I like how modest you are about this stuff, James. You could be like, “Get your hands on this one of a kind amazing piece of Nerd history!” but you’re not and that’s people love James the human being as well as James the Nerd.

  • mca24

    January 15, 2012 at 7:54 am

    Wait, what? You’re giving away “Top Gun”? Oh, well.. I guess after you finally managed to land the plane the game is no fun anymore :))

  • TommyO'Neil

    January 15, 2012 at 2:12 pm

      I see where you’re coming from. But I gotta admit, having him sign my Genesis that I had since I was 6 was pretty significant for me.

    Ah well, he’s a nerd so he should have a well-trained right arm 😉

    • StefanoPavone

      January 17, 2012 at 7:15 am

      @Tenchuu And a reasonably-trained left arm in case his right one gets tired. 🙂

    January 15, 2012 at 8:13 pm

    Will you be able to ship the shit outside of the US?

  • Blaudon

    January 16, 2012 at 9:58 pm

    question, if i donate $30 do i get the chance to win the sega saturn and the top gun cart or do i only get the video and the photo?

    • KaydenWaveharp

      January 17, 2012 at 1:24 am

      @Blaudon I believe it’s both! 😀

  • KaydenWaveharp

    January 17, 2012 at 1:33 am

    Someone should start ANOTHER fundraiser on another site to raise money for the AVGN movie, and then send the collected funds to AVGN! 😀 That’d be an epic thing to get in the mail, an envelope full of lots of money right in the middle of filming, no?

    • CGBongsmoke

      February 12, 2012 at 6:03 am

      @KaydenWaveharp No.

        January 19, 2012 at 6:49 am

        @[email protected] Why does everyone always think that people are jealous as soon as someone writes one little sentence that might crticize James Rolfe? I don’t really agree with what Negri wrote, since James doesn’t take anyone’s money, but critizing James seems to be impossible.
