      Is anyone from the old Retro MMGN kicking around these parts? Would be awesome to see how everyone’s collection has changed since the good old days.

      Use this thread to post pics of your collection, or new items that you acquire gradually. I’ll probably put some pics up of my recent buys tonight when I get home to get us started – because the retro forum here deserves to live [cool]

        Little later than intended, but here’s a quick snap of my recent retro purchases.

        Probably spans the last 3-4 weeks I’d say.

          All I have left is a 64 with about 5 controllers and about 20 plus games.
          And a Gamecube that I have set up for the kids and they love it.
          I sold everything else I had. No time to play it.

          But would be cool to get one of those mini nes’ coming out. Just for some quick retro fun with the kids.

          PS like the box of Nintendo collector cards/stickers. !!!

          I scored a copy of Mario Sunshine a few seeks ago pretty cheap. But sold it not long after. Wish I kept it know, my son would have loved it :(

            I have a second copy of sunshine – the disc is scratched up. It loads up, and you can play until you get Fludd, at which point it seems to go downhill.

            If you wanted to have a crack at repairing the disc or whatever, I’m more than happy to ship you over my second copy free of charge :)

                Not really. Guyver was around for a bit at the start but he’s disappeared off the map. I think after MMGN he is a bit worn out with forums haha [cool]

                  @micdaman – no worries bud. I don’t make any guarantee on its functionality, I have never attempted to fix scratched discs before but hopefully you can work some magic and bring it back to its full glory :P Just PM me postage details and I’ll try my best to ship it over to you tomorrow!

                  Yeah, I can understand that, he put a lot of time and love into all of those forums. Well hopefully some new blood pops by soon to the new collest site in Oz ;)

                    I guess not really “retro” but didn’t really know where else to put this…unless someone wants to create a figurine thread?

                            Thanks guys, yea a few small things which need to be done still. Might give it a rough sand and just some clear varnish.

                            Got an old arcade cabinet which I just want to start next as a generic arcade cabinet which will be the next project.

                            I really only started the DK one because it was hard rubbish and ive had that barrel for two years now. The misses was like are you going to use it or throw it on. Slammed it together over a weekend :P

                            Better get cracking on the other one now :P
