I mean there one guy on ebay at the minute with a NES and 11 games
for (currently) 99p+£20 p+p

As with C64,Speccy etc it's not the machine that's hard to get,it's the software.I mean,my local carboot usually has a couple of Amigas,with a handful of games - but just try finding a decent fairly common game like SWOS-no chance!
I have said many times that I am not able to use ebay, I may be able to get a mate to get a game off there but not a NES

Why is you complaining, I bet it looks proper bling, innit? :lol:
It was painted very badly and I prefer it looking like it was when it left the shop 15 odd years ago.
Also has any one brought anything from a store called retro-games.net? as these people are really starting to irritate me with the time they are taking to deal with one order

Patience, young padawan. You must not be so quick to anger.

Would it not be easier to paint the nes gold when you get it, then you'd have a matching set.

Imagine how much a gold nes would go for on E-Bay, I bet most of the people on here would kill for one of those.
