I haven't bought much recently, but am very happy with this sealed Game Boy Color I got from eBay. It was a second chance offer as the highest bidder pulled out :)

Nice game boy colour, I remember talking about these and friends saying Nintendo couldn’t make them work because the battery’s didn’t last! lol

Well this is a result, I bought this for the cool box that I hadn’t seen before, the seller listed it as used but it turns up and the controller is brand new :)

Nice one- I had a similar experience when I bought my arcade stick for the DC, although I’ve used it now. Funny how in SW collecting mode I wouldn’t use an unused ship for example but that doesn’t bother me for a retro game/controller.....anyway, here’s my latest pick up- a joshprod port of Flashback for DC :p

Thanks, I've got aout 20 in total, the earliest is the NES and latest a Wii, with most of the major consoles in between. I need to do a group shot some time.

That Megadrives’ stunning Edd. It’s a cool controller the Megadrive, feels sturdy and chunky, more so than the Snes ones. I bought this classic just for nostalgia, got one for a present in the early 80’s :D

A good days hunting today, I found all these in a random mobile phone repair shop! The condition of all of them is excellent

Love seeing all this retro gaming stuff makes me want to get an old game boy and revisit some classics.

An impulse buy from CeX last week, I usually play handheld games on one of these but this was in really nice condition, so couldn't pass it up for £45. And it's actually really nice to play on the non-backlist original screen, it's easy on the eyes and feels more authentic!

This has been a labour of love, I bought it as non-working back in January and had to replace practically everything to get it working. But this new LCD screen looks a million times better than the original one so it was worth the wait!
