Floater Lemming Pin
This pin features a traditional Floater Lemming, drawn in the fasion of the original lemmings. I can't say I know for a fact where this originally came from, but I read it came packaged with the old PC and Mac versions of the game.
There was a set of twelve of these, one for each Tribe. Although I only have pictures of the Classic and Medieval lemmings, I've managed to get all of them but the Highland and Shadow lemmings, but just haven't gotten around to getting a picture. The Classic one is almost like the original Floater lemming pin above, except it's drawn in a more cartoony style. I believe they were randomly bundled with the computer version of the game in Europe. That meant two things - first, in order to get them all, you either had to buy multiple copies of the games (and pray that you get a different pin in each one), or buy them. Both are difficult, as twelve copies of the game could drain a pocket fast (plus the fact it's obviously discontinued), and these things never come up on eBay.
I got this off eBay from Great Britain. The shirt features the group of lemmings standing in front of the Talisman, as shown on the cover of every version of the game I've seen, although for some reason, it's missing the Beach and Shadow tribes.
And here is a good look at her. Her name is Arlene. She did not like the flash on my camera.
There's two of these, "The Genesis Quest", and "The Hypnosis Enigma". I imagine they're something like those old Nintendo game books, and I haven't played through Hypnosis Enigma yet, but shittin' shinola the Genesis Quest was such a waste of time I'm not exactly looking forward to it.
If you don't have a record player, you're not missing much with this thing. I only paid $5 for this (including the shipping), and the only things I got out of this were a few laughs. There's only two songs on it, one on each side. One side has the Lemmings SFX Mix, and the other has a song called "I Think You'd Better Do What He Says". And they both suck.
