The last four days there have been Flea markets all over the place due to the longer weekend. Too bad it was raining most of the time so a lot of flea markets weren’t as big as they normally are. On the plus side, because there weren’t a lot of visitors as well, I managed to find some good games which otherwise might have slipped through my fingers. In the end, I’m really happy with my finds because usually I don’t find as much in good weather on the flea market! Everything was cheap to begin with and I succeeded to bargained down even further because of the really bad weather. It was a Successful weekend.
Today I also picked up a retro handheld lot from a collector who sold of his collection. On the way home I went to another flea market but it was raining and everything was covered in plastic. I still managed to find yet another Gremlin’s Gizmo pluche for 2 euros 😀 That’s the 4th one this year between 50 cents and 2 euros. Welcome to the Gizmo family, he looks great in my game room 🙂
untill next time,

After I got my LaserDisc player I was searching for some movies to watch on it. I had found about 10 Disney LaserDiscs but I needed some classic horror and action movies as well. I was happy to have found a lot of classic movies in good condition for cheap. Now I have to find the time to watch them all 😀
In the future I will probably do reviews on unique discs which are different from the DVD / VHS / … version.
until next time
Nothing too special today, I only went to 1 flea market (a big one) but I lucked out on a very cheap Sega 32X which I didn’t have yet and a boxed Gameboy box variation. Everything was found in the early hours. I’m tired and now, Sunday can really begin 🙂
until next time
This weekend I went to 3 flea markets and a garage sale. I found a lot of good stuff for cheap at the first flea market I went to. I even passed up on some games because I didn’t know where to look first, sadly when I came back these were already sold. I was on my way to someone who had a lot of NES, SNES and sega games for sale at a fixed price of 5 euros (my dad looks out for games and calls me when he has seen something) as I walked by a boxed philips MSX computer which I couldn’t pass up (it was only 10 !), I love the old konami games on the MSX 🙂
At the final flea market I went to I bought a gameboy with al the cables and accessories in a cool box for 1 euro. I also noticed he had a few atari games which at first I couldn’t pick up since he was selling the lot with a Atari 2600jr I don’t need. As it turns out I now have a very rare Atari game so I am most happy with that. SInce I am a big sega fan some of this stuff is going to be traded with fellow collectors. The best find for me is the ps1 game overboard ! and the master system games because they are the most nostalgic to me 🙂
untill next time,
It has been a busy week for me so I didn’t have much time to post here.
Last weekend my dad went to a flea market I couldn’t go to and he has already found a nice Laserdisc Player (10 euros)! I had only told him to look out for one a few days before because I had found a stack of Laserdiscs at another flea market.
I always wanted to collect old video’s on VHS because they are dirt cheap, even thrown away where I live and I like to watch movies on original format but you have to draw the line somewhere. Collecting for laserdisc seems to be a good alternative for me, I really like the audio and video quality, look and feel so in the future I am looking to ad some classic 80’s and 90’s movies to my collection. I hooked my player up to my Bang&Olufsen TV I use for retro gaming. It’s a CRT beast ,the best there is, amazing quality !
Today I also picked up a few master system games I had won from Ebay auctions. I got them from someone I know , I had already bought some games from him since he told me he was selling his whole Sega Master System collection with a lot of rare titles. After I bought a lot of games from him (also 3D glasses, boxed), he decided to put the rest on Ebay so these are the games I ended up winning. He really had a lot of action going on his games so unfortunately I didn’t manage to buy some games like buggy run, masters of combat, Tec toy releases still sealed, sega sports pad, … but I am still glad with the games I managed to Win.
Untill next time,
This is looking really cool ! openJAMMA is an all new open source JAMMA compliant arcade board. It runs from an on-board SD card, so you have quick access to a wide selection of MAME arcade games. The openJAMMA board will be able to output a VGA signal for the original CRT monitor based arcade machines, while the more modern alternatives can make use of the accompanying HDMI slot.
I think this is really cool, I like the idea of flash cartridges on consoles but this is even better.
The device is set to feature enough power to run a wide majority of games. Some specs: ARM Cortex A8 CPU, 1Ghz CPU with Graphics accelerator, 4G NAND flash for OS and 1G RAM.
