Got an immaculate Atari 20 in 1 DTV for £1 at a car boot. Missile Command is too adictive.

Mrs Ant bought me a Vectrex for my birthday last year :D

Picked up a few random bits from charity shops, including an Atari 10 in 1 for £1. Weirdest thing is probably the Sonic the Hedgehog Turbo Challenge Race Set. I keep meaning to bung it on ebay as I know someone out there will give it some love but left it too late so held off til Christmas passed.

Lots of random Mage Drive and SNES games from chairty shops and Gamestation - they're doing not bad with their bogof deals for the last few months.

Not quite retro (imho), but I finally picked up an official Dreamcast lightgun a couple of months back, as well as buying a TFT screen and rechargable battery for my PSOne so its portable. That in turn led to a new rash of PS1 purchases.

Oh, and Retro Gamer, natch ;)
