    So i finally got around to putting my old consoles to good use and setting them up in little display cases

    I have 4 detolf units (so room for 16 consoles and games) although only 3 are pictured here

    My wish list is an Atari Jaguar, a Nintendo NES and possible the 3DO

    Considering i only started in January this year. i think i am doing pretty well!

    Doing very well, thanks for sharing good luck with your future consoles. How many games have you grabbed any plans to display them?

    Looks good, but how can you play them in a glass case?

    They all work. Well except the PC Engine as i don't have the power supply or AV cables to test but the plan wasn't to play them but use them as display pieces. Hence the cabinets and not an AV hookup

    Update.

    Got LED lights installed in the cabinets. Looking good!

    Going to get a cabinet maker to build me a base unit for the Detolfs so i can see the bottom displays better as well as giving me some extra storage for magazines, cables etc
