Garage Sale Find: Super Mario 64 110 Film Camera

9 06 2014

Hit a couple of garage sales in the neighbourhood today and managed to pick up this neat little Super Mario 64 110 film camera. While film in general is disappearing, the 110 format went out of vogue somewhere in the mid 90’s. I have no idea as the whether or not it is rare, but I do find it neat. It also came with an unused, expired film cartridge. Check out the poor quality pictures below:

Recent Pick Up: Game Boy Advance And Mortal Kombat 4 For The Game Boy Color

8 04 2014

Went to one of a couple local flea markets here in Calgary last Sunday (April 6, 2014) and grabbed this Game Boy Advance and a copy of Mortal Kombat 4 for the Game Boy Color. Nothing fancy, but I did need an original Game Boy Advance since mine went missing several years ago, and as for the Mortal Kombat 4 cartridge… well, it was included. Got both of them for $20 Canadian.

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:

Colexions.com–A Special Place on the Net for Us: The Crazy Classic Video Game Collectors

29 01 2013

Last year sometime I was looking for software that would allow me to catalogue my game and system collection. Using various search word combos in Google I came to the conclusion that there wasn’t such a thing (or at least not one that had all the functions I wanted). That was a bummer. There was an upshot to my search, though: I found the awesome site, colexions.com.

What the heck is colexions.com? It’s a site where fellow classic video gamingcolexions collectors can congregate and post our collections and look at other like minded folks collections. If you want to blog about your hobby you can, and if you want to read someone else blogging about it you can do that also. Do you have a game or a system you want to buy? Or maybe something you want to sell? You can do either here. It’s got pretty much everything you need in a classic video game collecting except one single thing. What’s that thing? Before I tell you what it is, I will tell you that you can actually bring that missing piece to the site yourself. That missing piece is just this: The site needs more members for it truly to be as effective as I know it will be.

So I am asking you to do me a favour and go to colexions.com and sign up and post your collection. I get no financial benefit as the site is not mine in any way, shape or form. The benefit I get is that I get to gawk at even more systems and games and toys on a site that is made just for that. If you’re a collector, or even thinking of collecting then I don’t see what you have to lose.





Testing My One of My Super Nintendos

And While I Am At It…

21 10 2008

Well, I thought that since I was talking up my mini cab collection, I thought I would put ’em all out together, along with some of my Nintendo Game and Watches (well, the ones that I could find at the time) and take a picture of them. I have a number of other games that fit into the mini cab format, but I wanted a picture of the classics. The only reason I threw the Game And Watches in is because I had to move each one to get at the mini cabs themselves.

Here is that picture:
