Wanted . . . Dead or Alive
« on: July 11, 2008, 09:12:54 AM »
These are some of the bits we would love if anybody has them lying about . . . donations are very welcome . . .

Any of the Atari 8 bit machines (400, 800 etc.), Amstrad CPC664, 6128 and GX4000!, Commodore CDTV, Commodore 64GS, Commodore 128D, Commodore Amiga 1500, 3000, 4000 and 4000T!, Sega MegaCD, Nintendo Virtua(l) Boy, MGT Sam Coupe, Acorn Atom, Oric Atmos and Oric 1, Dragon 32 and 64, Philips Videopac, any old pong type games, etc etc etc etc . crikey didnt realise I needed so many - Im sure there are hundreds more! lol! and of course If you do have something lying about that you don't want that is retro . . . and we already have - we do need spares!!!

basically anything computer/console that is retro and isnt on the front page list . . . Im even added in a couple of PCs, and a around 5 or so Apple Macs.

Dragon 32 and 64 used to be made in Port Talbot, that was where I grew up :) Good luck in your search!

Im in contact with a guy who co-developed the Dragon 32. He might have a couple for me (pre-production too! + some joystick prototypes) so if they both work, I should be able to donate my Dragon 32.

Will keep you posted.
