That's a pretty good price I must say, especially with the games and overlays, not played the pinball, but got the other 3 as well as Bezerk and Scramble, both class  ;D

Obviously depends what sort of price you paid for them, but I've got a couple of sealed games (Star Raiders for the Atrai 2600 with keypads, Hampstead for the Spectrum), and my only thought is do you really want to open them, and if not are they worth owning ?

NICE! ;D I have the ST version and I'm impressed with it (I actually have the 'Dizzy Collection' for ST, in mint condition)

R Type 2 - sealed
Bubble bobble
Operation wolf
I've not played the ST versions of the above ..... any good?

Still waiting for them to arrive. I've played bubble bobble and operation wolf the ST, both play very well. I'm mostly looking forward to trying out R-Type 2.

Treasure island dizzy is good on the ST but I prefer them on the C64.

The wild bunch remake for the C64 arrived yesturday, so I'm lookng forward to playing that aswell.

From what I've seen, R-Type 2 is impressive ..... but my copy don't work, it freezes at the title screen ???

Am falling in love with my Vectrex.

Can't believe the price of additional game controllers are fetching on eBay and £XX for a plastic Mine Sweeper overlay..whoa!

Makes me happy I only paid £47 for this lot.

Regards

I wonder, can you count a few old PC motherboards (we're talking Pentium 2/Pentium 3) as retro?
Didn't buy as such, more 'given' them.

Bargain! :)

You can get a new belt for £1. Dead easy to replace.
