    Here's my used 1989 Gameboy bought for $10 last week. Is in very ragged condition, but with some cleaning fluid it'll look brand new:

    Awesome forum!

    Got gameboy pocket, colour, adv, adv sp!
    All for great pokemon goodness.

    Also the n64 gets more use here than the ps3 and wii combined :)

    Too young to have had anything older unfortunately :thumbdn:

    Nice collection elvis. Seem to be missing a 3DO, 32X mega CD but you probably have them stashed. Waits for moonshadow to post his collection. Good to see your back elvis. My piss poor collection is a GameGear with SMS converter and a Dreamcast. Yes I used to be a fanboi once upon a time.

    Sadly not stashed, and definitely missing.

    High on the want list:

    * 32X
    * Mega CD
    * PC Engine
    * Famicom + Disk system (missed a mint one on eBay about a year back, and kicking myself)
    * 3D0
    * Atari 2600/5200/7800/Jaguar

    Also my only retro computer is a Sega SC-3000H. I had plenty of mates with Amigas and C64s, but never one myself. I really want to grab one of each.

    Unless it has been thrown out - I have a megacd 2 (the one that slotted onto the side of the megadrive, not the one that lived underneath it) at my parents house somewhere - next time I'm down there I'll see if I can find it and your welcome to it if it still works.

    Got a 32x floating about too I believe.

    The first console I had came out when the Atari came out the Dick Smith Wizard lots of the same kind of games. It's two controllers made a keyboard and if you got the computer cartridge it turned it to a computer with the basic language which then you could program your own games like master mind. Wow 27 years ago.

    I've got an original and top loading NES back home, plus the classic controllers, Advantage, etc. Sadly, the hamster we had chewed through most of the controller wires. :mad:
