Re: Coronavirus

It certainly is one long drag, can't say it feels like the end of the year, another day in limbo, all I can do is count my blessings really. Apparently now where I live is in the top 10 parts of the UK for rapid rise. I hope all of you out there are keeping safe and well.

Re: Free stuff in cereals and crisps...

I bought a big bag of Trash Pack figures this week, when we going through them this morning, there were oddly 5 Mini Boglin figures in there from 1994, the ones that came with Kelloggs Frosties.

Re: Supplements / Freebies / Extras list

There was the un-official Issue 19 Disc, I remember buying in the gap when it ended after issue 18. All my issues are still in the bags they came in, aside those very early issues, those blue bags dis-intergrated. Annoyingly the new paper envelopes don't really protect the mags in transit now.

Re: Looking for a Magazine

I know C&VG used to bring out the odd special bookazine, I suspect this was one of them. I think I used to have once, not anymore though.

Re: 'random niceness' thread

Nokgod, me being retro and all that have only recently picked up a DS, if you still have the game and no-one has taken it I'd gladly give it a home, love Mr Driller.

Re: Where are they now?

I've not logged on here for aaaaaaaaaaaaages, there used to be a good trading scene on here. I think as the forum got smaller, there was less going on, so I stuck with my other hangs outs like UKvac forum. I check in now and then to see whats going down.

Re: large collections

Collectors do buy collections as well, why not put up here what you have and likely price you are looking for. I collect Gameboy and Snes, if you have any collections of those I'd be interested.

Re: ATARI Star Wars Return Of The Jedi Arcade Cabinet

Certainly pop it on UKVac, cab prices have gone crazy high of recent, I am sure you will have plenty of people wanting to tear your arm of for it. Are you in the UK? most of us use a specific delivery man to pickup and transport cabs, its not as expensive as you might think.

Re: Supercade Volume 2 Kickstarter

Looking forward to this, they have almost reached the $100K goal, which means a collectors edition of the book to include the original Vol 1.

Re: Dave Perry

He has a youtube show now, Games Animal TV, episode 3 came out last weekend, I rather enjoyed watching them, he has mellowed with age and told some great, entertaining stories, well worth checking them out.

Re: Ebay is flooded with repros. Can anything be done?

I've reported loads of fake repro Snes games on ebay in the past, seller was churning out fake copies of the rarer games for £30 each, it said in the listing they were reproductions, ebay did nothing, I think they just are happy to rake in the money. I doubt there is really much that can be done abo...

Re: Recommend me some older Transformer comic

A few years back, I started buying some of the collected books of the Simon Furman comics, a lady at my work used to talk about her husband having 1000s of comics and how he collected them and was really into all that. Anyhow the day after she left the company, some of my books arrived and I was sho...

Re: Collecting ideas

I am still very slowly going for a full set of Snes games, I am in no rush, but I lost my passion for buying anything else, I used to keep all my Nintendo stuff, but the bulk of N64 collection go the chop at Christmas, the rest of it will go next Christmas. I just don't have space to keep storing al...
