I am slowly starting to up my collection again now.
A few things that ive managed to snag recently are a Super Gameboy 2, nice looking Sega Nomad and a few knackered arcade boards that are now fixed.
Had a Nomad some time ago and stupidly let it go, never again shall I make that mistake.

Picked up a Apple Performa 475 and a Performa 6200 via freecycle today. Getting a PS1 and some more games later and maybe a megadrive with games.

Nice little apple bundle, I'm still on the look for a Quadra 900/950, freecycle's not been giving much up recently.

Got a call from my parents saying that they were having a loft clear out and wanted to know if i could sort through some boxes containing stuff they said was mine.

Found my old C64 with about six large boxes of tapes, my Star Wars At-AT (put some batteries in and the 'guns' still lit up!) and a NES with a few carts. I said the NES wasn't mine but they had know idea where it came from so it's all mine now ;D

Mario/Duckhunt + Zapper
Double Dragon 2
Blades of Steel
Mario 3
Kirby's adventure
ExciteBike
Zelda
TMNT

Not tried the zapper gun yet, but i'm guessing it won't work with LCD TV's

Still got more boxes to go through next week.

Nice... I had one of these myself. They were great fun to play with, but the guns on mine locked up in the end :(

Thanks to a guy at my local Linux user group, I have been donated a Apple Power Macintosh 7100/66, Acorn A3020 and a Research Machines RM 480Z. He also has some other stuff for me including a Pet and a TRS-80. Got to pick the rest up at the weekend.
