Mayhem or MikeHaggar's collections would be great but having seen the pics of them they would probably need there own pull out section in the mag. :D

I've just gone over the 200 game mark on my GameGear collection. About 70 are boxed including a few "less common" titles like Power Strike 2 and Sonic Labyrinth. Also have a blue GameGear that has been modded with an LED backlight. I'm waiting for a Majesco 2001 re-release to arrive in the post which is a little different from Sega's model.

Some of the Street Fighter collections i've seen on here are a tad more exciting though!

Just 3 questions for you...

1. What's your address?
2. What times do you go out/what kind of a time window would I have to enter your house and 'borrow' some things without being seen? :wink:
3. What kind of security does your house have on it?

:lol:

Seriously, that's a superb collection, love the 'Tower Of Power'. Me is jealous.

He did say he's changed the control panel. I assume he was fed up of aircraft diverting to land on it.

Cruel, but :lol:

There are worse cabs out there.

Much worse.

Incidentally, I'm going to say the same thing other people have- my collection isn't big/specific enough. The only noteworthy thing is the kind-of-maybe-almost complete PAL Earthworm Jim set I've got.

I know Mayhem's been featured in Collector's Corner before, has MikeHaggar then?

Nope. Would need to do a lot of cleaning and sorting to make it presentable though :P

I've been foiled again! I fixed the image to reduce the amount of The Hoff.

How about the Guy with loads of Big Box PC Games? - Think it was either Chinoco or hydr0x.

Really interesting collection because most people don't have the space for such large boxes.

We always have family dinner at the cab... :lol: Honestly, with my new X-Arcade TankStick in place of the custom controls it looks much more professional now. I'm glad speedlolita has my back haha That old control set up was made by a friend and I felt bad replacing it but I would only stand being O'hare Airport so long... lol

As for security, I'm protected by a couple of vicious attack chihuahuas :twisted: :lol: :lol:

I have so many more games besides for the "Tower of Power". My collection that moved into my room is boxed disc based games, which my PC Engine CD Collection is pretty awesome.


*EDIT* I just saw Pac-Matt!! :lol: :lol: :lol: Who the hell would want a trackball where you can't see the screen? :?:

Haha, well, I don't have the space either :lol: Which is why most of them are stored away in nice IKEA packing boxes :? Makes it a bit hard to take great photos really, not to mention I don't own a decent cam at the moment.

hydr0x - was it you who posted a photograph of a massive collection of boxed gameboy games once? I thought that was pretty impressive.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
