Had An Awesome Time Hangin’ With My Retro Collector Friends From Colexions.com

7 04 2014

My buddy and fellow Retro Gaming fanatic Corey Buckner has put together a great community of fellow minded collectors over at colexions.com. Well, not only has he put together a great site to show off your own collection and geek out over fellow collectors treasures, he also hosts a monthly “Show And Tell” on Google Hangouts. What it is is a group of us collectors having a great time, showing off our stuff and talking about retro gaming and what ever else might come to mind. This was the third monthly get together and boy did we get to see some amazing stuff. We represented five different countries and three different continents but the distances just made the conversation better. It’s really cool to be able to meet like this. We had Corey Buckner (of course) from just outside Chicago and indie game developer Gary Brafford in West Virginia and lifespiller79 from…um sorry man, Texas (I think), all three in the U.S. of A,  We had Gabo representing Argentina, Mark in the U.K, Paul in Australia and little ol’ me up here in Canada. Everyone pulled out all the stops and showed some real stunners from our collections. Checkout last Saturday’s get together below:





A Fantastic Intellivision Haul…And More!

5 01 2014

I decided to peruse a local online buy and sell site to see if there was any retro treasure to be found… There was! I bagged a boxed, great condition Intellivision, a crap load of great games, the Intellivoice add-on. But that, my fine feathered Internet friends was not all. No indeed, it is not. Included with the Intellivision was the extremely rare Educational Computer System (ECS) add-on, with the also ridiculously rare Music Synthesizer keyboard add-on. Pretty crazy, eh? Well, wait – there’s even more: the guy also threw in an Atari XE computer/console, matching joystick AND light gun,some Atari paddle controllers, a Kraft joystick, and the really cool button controller for Track and Field.

I got this entire haul for a total of $85 Canadian. The ECS and the XE didn’t come with power supplies, but I tested the XE with an existing power supply from the XE I already have and it works great, as does the ECS as I was able to test it using a Nintendo Entertainment System power supply.

Freakin’ awesome!

22 10 2013

So I finally managed to score a classic Mego 2-XL educational robot shaped 8-track playing toy. The device asks you questions, and you choose multiple choice answers, pushing the corresponding answer button. Simple but cool, I really wanted one of these when I was a kid…And now I have one!

Check out the crappy demo’s I made below:
