Another Japanese GBA game, Star Soldier Famicom Mini.

Wow, what a quality set - the cartridge is Famicom coloured and there's even a tiny reproduction box of the original game.

Wonderful set there - nice to see a UK 8-bit collection like that.

Another Japanese GBA pickup, one I've been after for a while because I'm a fan of the series and the artwork is particularly nice:

Started cleaning out my loft ready for it to be converted which means my games collection needs sorting and moving. First time ive looked at it all in ages! Im a bargain hunter and my gaming stuff doesnt follow any system, just whaever is cheap! Im most proud of my Nintendo collection, as it was the brand as used most as a youth, so id thought id share a few snaps before its boxed up to gather dust somewhere else! This whole lot has been gathered in 6months and cost around 200quid(ish/nearly/maybe), it was bought in different bundles so its hard to work out unit cost. A few quid a game at most and a fiver a console seems realistic, bassically if its not boarderline free i wont buy it :lol:

Nothing amazing and certainly not the biggest collection but for thrift value it holds it head up high. Hagane(SNES), the Star wars edition Gameboy and Megaman 2(NES) cost about 7quid for example :)

Ta matey.
It was never meant to be any collection at-all. This time last year i would describe myself as a "greedy dealer"......then i just started getting attatched to stuff(it gave me memories of my youth!). Now our house is bloody full of gaming tat and my other half hates it :lol:

Yeah thanks, i got really lucky with alot of that stuff price wise. :)

Wish id taken some snaps off all the Sega stuff i had when it was at its peak but due to not having the systems when i was a kid i felt no emotion by being offered wads of cash for it. Sold 100+ Mega drive and Saturn games over the last few months. Kept a few though and a load of 32x and Mega cd gubbins, may drag them out later to see what i do have! :oops:

As mentioned over at RetroCollect, I finally completed the European black cart Game Boy Color set! So here's a lovely photo of it all :D

Image

Click to enlarge ;)

The Smurfs and V-Rally games are separate because they are not Game Boy compatible at all, despite having a black cartridge!
