As most of you know (especially folks on twitter) I’m a mad collector of retro games and arcades boards, and I mentioned on Twitter recently about some dedicated display cabinets that I was having built to house the entire collection. Well, these cabinets were finished recently and look beeeeeeautiful. They span the width of the room their housed in and stand from floor to ceiling…yes, floor to ceiling ;) I’ll be cataloguing the whole collection soon, but as a rough guide there’s over 300 games and over 30 consoles :) This is the outcome of a lifetimes collecting, so whenever I see something worth adding…I add it :)
Everything you see is boxed, with instructions and in either good, great or as new condition. I’m rather fussy about that part ;) There’s some real gems in here too, a boxed and as new Virtual Boy, a rare Japan only Sega MegaJet, a mint Multi Mega, plus loads of other crazy stuff. The core of the collection is focused on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, so a very large amount of the games are for this system. Man I love the Mega Drive!!
So to any of my wonderful games customers that happen to be reading this, if ever you needed any further proof of my obsessive love for this industry, look no further ;)
Anyway, without further ado, say hello to the collection! Its split over two sides, one side for games, one side for hardware.
I hope you enjoyed the show!!
P.S. Yes, that’s an official replica of Conan’s Father Sword hanging on the wall…call it my security system ;)
