Chap I know just arrived at work and dropped some stuff on my desk for me. Has a really nice looking Megadrive for me and a huge wad of boxed carts. Plenty of the usual suspects like SToR, Shinobi but also some really nice carts like Thunderforce and an Action Replay MkII.

RCM has had an Intellivision (with Speech Module) and a load of boxed games.

Acknowledgements for the weekend purchases:

SMS1 + Games inc. Composite+Audio lead from AndyT
Sega Saturn + two games (Sega Rally and Command and Conquer) from filecore
Lego Star Wars for the XBox from filecore (I'm assured I'll enjoy it...)
Toshiba Libretto 100CT from filecore (I spent far too much with him....)

Not technically retro, both worth a mention:
ATI Radeon Sapphire Pro X1950 graphics card form AndyT - thats gone in my Linux box and works very nicely :)

I picked up a couple of bits on Sunday.

BBC Master 512. Like a normal BBC with a 6502, but this one also has a 80186 PC CPU. Can run PC software http://flic.kr/p/9GE8mz
Acorn Electron 'Turbo' + Slogger ROM box and cartridge.

Yeah I want one of those, a 186 co-pro that is, wonder if Dave has another that he'd part with :) :)

Answer to that was apparently yes, after first repairing the Master that it was in (which had a keyboard fault).

Cheers.

Couple of bits. Quite tatty.

486 DX2-80 PC
BBC Model B
2 * MTX512 - no power supplies which is a pain as the power requirements are weird.
A3000 - Really tatty. Probably dead.

Found a boxed Colecovision and VCS adaptor at the boot! First one I've ever found at a boot. Only ever found loose carts before.
Going straight into the collection!

nice one Soph, my first ST set up :)

I just bought a new FDD for my Atari 800. Pretty rare over here
