If theres any collectors for atari or any other gaming systems from australia, maybe this would be a good place to exchange ideas.
:)

Maybe we could start the topic off by sharing our console collections. :)


SO far i have accumulated:
1xatari darth vader, 1xatari Jr, 2x atari 7800, 1xatari LYNX
3xsega megadrive, 1XSMS, 2Xsega saturns, 1X SEGA dreamcast, and 1Xgamegear
also
1 NES, 2SNES, 1N64, Gmaeboy Pocket

1 Intellivision and 1 colecovision........

So far the atari's are my personal favourites.
I'm staying out of the retro computer side of things, as to the unreliable nature of tapes and disks.( can anyone enlightem me on this? )

Just wanted to post here too, re: the Globetrotter thread. The cart is now in the Perth, WA, Australia area.

Anybody from Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, or the other Pacific islands in the vicinity, Trotter needs your help. :)

Thanks.

Another Aussie Exposed! :D

Listed below are the systems that i have & collect for:

:arrow: Atari Jaguar - My favourite system & the one i invest most in

:arrow: Atari Lynx - Just got back into it (due to 'work' purposes - play for pay :wink: :D )

:arrow: Atari ST - Selectively collecting the games that i want most (CIB)

:arrow: Atari 65 XEGS - (desperately) looking for a MultiJoy8 adaptor and games to go along with it (for multiplayer competitions) as well as some link-up games like Midi Maze, etc.

:arrow: Amiga 500 (1mb) - pretty much for collecting & playing AD&D / SSI RPG's only (CIB only!) as well as the legendary platformer - GODS

:arrow: XBOX - not really collecting for, mainly using it for Halo link-up deathmatches, and a few other titles. Eagerly anticipating the release of more multiplayer games (& looking forward to getting into on-line gaming soon)

:arrow: Playstation 1 - got it mainly for Iron Soldier 3 (to complete my Iron Soldier 'Trilogy' - with #1 on Jag cart & #2 on Jag CD :wink: ) as well as the Raiden type shoot'em'ups & good RPG's

I'm also looking to 're-claim' a Dreamcast! I want to get one again primarily for the exellent 4-P games:
- Fur Fighters (looks much better than the PS2 version - IMO)
- Power Stone 2 (one of my all time favourites - in multi-player mode!)
- Toy Commander (great fun with 4 players)

I would love to (& already plan to) set up multiplayer competitions (particularly on the XE, Lynx, Jaguar & ST's) in the near future!

Hope to hear from all interested gamers soon :)

Ok, trying to keep this thread alive :)

If anyone in Australia wants to trade, please email me your lists to flugle@gmail.com


I have a largish box full of Atari doubles and would like to offload some of them. Some are loose, quite a few are boxed. There's also some boxed Intellivision stuff and a few Atari 7800 carts

How convenient

Just came back to the scene and I see Aussies are harping on as usual! :-)

I'm on the Eastern side of our land down under and have the following

My holy grail is...

1 x System X - the Atari 5200 prototype CONSOLE (purchased from Curt Vendel a while back)

Other Ataris I got

2 x 7800 with about 20 or so games
1 x 5200 (4 port) - boxed with a tonne of games, a handful of loaner carts and a multicart (that doesnt work very well hmmm)
3 x 2600 (those cheap darth vaders - only one is boxed) and about a zillion carts - many boxed and some still unopened (but dont get too excited I know they're just the common ones)

Others

Computers
2 x BBC Model B & disc drive (yes both have DFS)
1 x BBC Master with 3.5" drive
1 x Sinclair ZX-81 Boxed (with ram expansion)
1 x Sinclair ZX (with one of those funny drives, printer, joytick splitter etc)
2 x Commodore 64 with DD etc etc with 5 drawers of games on tape & disc
1 x Vic 20 with about 20 carts
1 x VZ-200 with a few games etc

Consoles
Colecovision with the add-on devices (like the converter & steering wheel)
Phillips TVG Pong like console

Oh and a PS2 ;-)

I have a few arcade machines too - an 80s drag racer thing and a few mame cabinets.

I also collect old computer mags - my fav being CU (Commodore User) - I've even got the first 8 of them :-) - C+VG is also another classic. I have a library of computer mags - numbering about 300 (at a guess) with the oldest being late 70s...

I am sure I've missed a few as I'm at work sitting in my lunch break at this and trying to recall what's in my games room.

And yes... I AM *considering* hiving off some of this stuff cuz I am thinking I need the dough... Will have to take a few picks of my games room first though! (It's great in winter - really warm!)

And please dont ask to buy the System X for 50 bucks! :P

Ohh... no Atari Jaguar :sad: Why does everyone here collect primarily for the 2600 :ponder: Maybe i should be checking some of them 2600 games out - i do remember playing SW: Empire Strikes Back and Enduro and having much fun with 'em :) But i must say, now that i also have a Nintendo GameCube with SW: Rebel Assault III i much prefer playing this over the 2600 Star Wars games :D

FYI - dont buy the SNES power adaptor for the Jag. it doesnt work. you can get a power supply from dicksmiths.
my jag collections is up to 35 games now.
2600 games is 60 different carts
7800 games is 4 - this is slow as i dont see many on ebay and when i do they go for too much.
