I can bring any of the following - just let me know what you want me to bring. I may be able to find an old portable tv or 2.....I'll see what I can do

Family Video Game 168 (NES clone based on Famlicom design) with 169 built in games
Game & Watch - Donkey Kong 2 screen boxed - but I've not got any batteries at the moment!
Atari 2600 (woody and smaller plastic + games - I'll sort out a list of games)
PS2 retro compilations (as discussed elsewhere)
SNES + Games
PS1 + Games
Atari Jaguar with Tempest 2000, Aliens Vs Predator, Doom & Cybermorph

If I can get back to my dad's I'll pick up my Oric1 & printer

first 20 or so Official Dreamcast magazines for Andy to keep....I'm still looking for my Edge magazines - thinking there are in Birmingham!

If there is anyway of showing Video's (I'll try to get them onto DVD) I have a few promo videos from the launch of Playstation & Dreamcast.

Let me know.....

Karl,
Yes to most of your stuff - its up to you what you want to bring . . . don't want to take the piss!!
It would be good to see the atari jaguar, ps2 retro compilations etc. we do have a ps1, snes and an atari but your games might be handy . . .
It would be fantastic to see the oric 1 and printer (I am jealous of your printer, i do have an oric 1 now but . . .)
thank you for the dreamcast mags - that is great!
We will have a dvd player there of some description (xbox 1 - maybe) - video's may be a problem?
and . . . portable tvs are always a necessity!!! so if you can find any - that would be great!

Cheers mate

I'll bring as much as I can...

I've got a Vectra Estate to fill!!! If you need any help moving stuff let me know (I'm in South Wigston, Leicestershire)

I'm back in Birmingham in a few weeks for work, so I'm stopping at my Dad's and see what I've left there (as well as picking up the Oric)

Just tried out my Atari Jaguar - it works! It was just a dodgy psu!!! Cool - I 'think' I have 10 or so games for it - I don't have tempest 2000 yet though! It is on my list of wants . . .

@Karl,
If you could still bring your Jaguar - just in case - definately bring your games!!! mmm tempest . . . . :)

Wolfenstein on the Jaguar is the best version.

No Problems bringing the Jaguar.

I regret so much not buying the Jaguar CD when I saw HMV selling them cheap to get rid of them years ago!!!! I can still remember looking at them and thinking about it!!!

I was younger and had different idea's then though

Does anybody think having Rock Band for the 360 is a good/bad idea?
can you let me know through here or via PM?

I can't stand those sort of things, but putting my own prejudices to oneside, it's probably a very good idea, it seemed very popular with all sorts of people at Retro Fusion, and the at least everyone can hear the music, which is a good thing as it adds atmosphere to the venue too.

@Quagmire, Yeah I think so, there should be several TVs - what sort of monitors will you need?

I'll need a 60Hz Scart TV/Monitor for the PCEngine and a Normal TV with Composite input for the Famicom as I have a PAL converter box for that.

That will be okay I think! My monitor/TV I use at home works at 50/60Hz :)
Looking forward to seeing you there! Showing off your toys! LOL!
