As the title suggests, have you imported any video games, consoles, game accessories or other gaming-related goods before, come across an out of region game in the wild, or do you choose to stay domestic with buying games/consoles/accessories in your home region?

I have imported several games as of recent years, these include:

Hoshi no Kirby 3 - Japanese version of Kirby's Dream Land 3 since the North American version is pricey due to its late release. If I ever get around to "modding" my SNES to play Super Famicom games or import a Super Famicom from Japan (couldn't get it to run on my RetroDuo despite being able to play Kirby Super Star (which also uses the SA-1 chip) on there), I'll give this one a playthrough. Until then, I've got Kirby's Dream Collection for KDL3 so it's not a big loss.

Go! Go! Cosmo Cops! - A fun, quirky grappling climbing action platformer game for the Nintendo DS from the Custom Robo devs that only ended up releasing in European countries. It was going to see a release in Japan, but that version sadly got cancelled.

Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo Switch - The latest installment in the Brain Age/Brain Training series. Due to the FTC having a vendetta on brain/IQ games for claims on these types of games actually boosting peoples' intelligence since early 2016, a North American release seems unlikely. Also got a copy mainly to have a compatible stylus for my Switch consoles.

Aleste Collection - A compilation consisting of the Master System and Game Gear entries of Compile's Aleste franchise plus GG Aleste 3, a new Aleste game developed by M2 which is exclusive to both this compilation and the White Game Gear Micro.

Asides those, I also have European copies of Bangai-O Spirits and Nanonstray 2 I found at a flea market a decade ago as well as a European copy of Solomon's Club I bought at a local games and movie store a year or so after that I thought was an American copy until I examined it closely and found French text on the sides of the label.

I have also imported several Amiibo from Japan back when I was actively collecting Amiibo in the Wii U era. Namely these ones:

Wii Fit Trainer
Toon Link
Robin/Reflet
Lucina
Gold Mario
Orange Inkling Squid

If you have imported any games, consoles, accessories et al or found any out of region gaming-related stuff locally in the wild, which ones have you imported/found in the wild?
