About this blog

Started March 2019 with an Atari Junior and one game Mrs. Pacman bought on a fleamarket... More than two years later i own:

 

305 cartridges, a whole lotta manuals, 52 boxes, some hombrewed, 5 consoles, different accessoires and controllers...

 

My hunger for more still ain't satisfied :)

 

cheers, 

StormyWeathers from the Netherlands

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Entries in this blog

 

My collection so far... 343...

River Raid II and Cosmic Commuter are on their ways... Shortlist: Still hoping for Tooth Protectors (almost had that one last sunday), Waterworld (someone beat me to it), Strawberry Shortcake (could have it but to ugly label), Missile Control (bought broken cart, still searching...) and Quadrun (maybe someone is willing to sell it to me).   Long list: too much to tell but still missing about 150...   VID_20211019_185204.mp4

A sneak preview

A sneak preview

Just a little sneak preview, Will show Pics of Every single cart, box whatever i own in the near future but for now try to spot the rare from the standaard games with below Photos. Offcourse every different game in my opinion has the same high emotional value...

9 Activision & Absolute Entertainment

9 Activision & Absolute Entertainment

4 whitelabels i very much dislike but at the time i really wanted Rampage and the other 3 are packed with boxes. Furthermore 2 Australian boxed ones upper left and right, Ghostbusters with a homemade box (see box section later) and 2 more absolute entertainment from which i replaced a white skateboardin' label with a pictured one...

9 Activision (B to E)

9 Activision (B to E)

All 'r' Activisions, more Will follow shortly... The nicest label in the middle which essentially was a White label which i as much as possible like to replace. Also replaced are boxing, checkers, chopper, crackpots, Decathlon And enduro...

9 Activision (F to L)

9 Activision (F to L)

Another 9 from Activision, replaced a very ugly H.E.R.O. but accidentally screwed the new label up and had to replace with a photocopy which i gladly made before. There for it's a bit lighter than intended. Afterwards i did found the basic file but didn't felt to re-replace it... Also frostbite ice hockey and GP were relabeled.

9 Activision (M to Ri)

Next 9 from Activision, one ugly White in the middle. Because of the cheap soft case i cannot replace it like the other Activision picture labels. Same problem with rampage and commando. Darn! The ones i did replace here are plaque private and pressure. Oink! I also replaced but lost the basic file so hopefully i never have to re-replace it again...

9 Activision (Ro to T)

9 Activision (Ro to T)

Almost the last Activisions (except for two more i Will show later). I always fancy the colourful and animated labels of Activision but that particular glue they used, oh my G! Offcourse another few replaced who were to ugly to showcase... Space shuttle, spider fighter, robot tank and stampede!

9 Atari (joy/drive/key/touch)

9 Atari (joy/drive/key/touch)

The next 9 are a collection of games with different controller-types, such as the video touchpad, driving controllers for Indy 500, keyboard controllers An off course joystick but unmentioned on the cart such as the first 2 entries... Basketball was my first attempt to replace an old, damaged label which was a bit of a personal succes as i may say...

9 Atari (paddle)

9 Atari (paddle)

9 Atari games controlled by paddles as in use with Paddles Controllers :). Nothing special except for demons to diamonds which was relabeled. Super breakout always kept me from buying breakout because it gives me the Idea i buy the same but more worse... But eventually i Will.

9 Atari & Ubisoft

9 Atari & Ubisoft

I am not fond of White labels as already mentioned in previous entries but i also dislike Atari textlabels a bit, however they still are much more interesting as the White ones. If you owe a lot it still gives a Nice picture. Unfortunately i owe 8 and not 9 so i still have put the boring White pick & pile in the middle

9 Atari & Sears

9 Atari & Sears

These 9 i took apart because these are some what connected by two, like Asterix & Obelix, the swordquest series where i still want to buy #3 waterworld in the near future, centipede followed by milipede and Stargate which is in fact Defender 2 next to a Nice blue Defender 1. Had to do this to make other portraits of 9 fit better but thats for later... Oh yeah and one Sears i almost forgot to mention.

9 Atari (Pac-Man & RealSports)

9 Atari (Pac-Man & RealSports)

The Pac-Man series and the RealSports Series in one portrait. In the middle the first cart i ever bought myself next to my first 2600... I used to have a Woody with a bunch of classics in the 80's but i have An Elder brother so you can guess where that ended. He still has everything from back then so thumbs up!!

9 Atari (Silver & video series)

9 Atari (Silver & video series)

This one contains the first ever NTSC disappointment, Atari video Cube. I bought it pretty expensive in eBay in Austria and when i finally got my hands on it... NTSC 😡. I do have a lot US-region games, that's not the problem And i also have a Retron77 but for this game colours are so very important and basically everything looks the same... Brown, red. Bummer!

9 Atari (red label, C to M)

9 Atari (red label, C to M)

The first half of the red label series i have collected over the last two years. Just another example of quantity collecting, no rare titles included as far as i can determine. Still 9 Nice ones, only desert Falcon cart is damaged but still Working on my junior...

9 Atari (red label, M to X)

9 Atari (red label, M to X)

Secon half of the red label series. Spotted An error in making these portraits. Should have switched motorodeo and midnight magic... Well i guess that's the only interesting tale to tell with these late Atari productions. No air raid, no birthday mania, no mangia'... Just the basic stuff.

9 Imagic

9 Imagic

Next to Activision i always had a love for Imagic labels. The rainbow colours on the Silver mirror background... Only problem now is... Can't take a picture without making a accidental selfie 😄. Two more Will follow...

9 Parker

9 Parker

9 Parkers but i see you think... Where's frogger? Where are the different Star Wars episodes?? Hold on, patience... Oh by the way. No arcade game of star wars included. Missed that one twice, first as a kinda Promise from a seller who sold it eventually to someone else and one i wanted to pick up in Belgium. Problem was, there was so much traffic jams and detours that Day i couldnt got out of town, even after one hour driving... [Sigh]

9 Activision, Imagic & Parker

9 Activision, Imagic & Parker

The leftovers, stars wars, frogger as mentioned before, 2 pictured Imagic labels and 2 Activisions where title match should be absolute entertainment a research have learnt. Distributed by Otto versand also but i am not 💯% sure about this.

9 CBS

9 CBS

9x CBS but it always seems to be connected to Coleco somehow. In My retro app i have corrected everything to CBS to make it look better... still not sure if i did the right thing...

9 Atari (Silver label A to J)

9 Atari (Silver label A to J)

To be precise, 6 Silver and 3 CCW but the Atari logo is the same so i keep it together in one portrait. Replaced the Cookie monster, the other 2 also need replacement but i am lazy... another thing to point out, you wont need a.kids controller, video touchpad or keyboard controllers also work... To keep in mind!

9 Atari (Silver label K to T)

9 Atari (Silver label K to T)

Also a Nice mixture between the Silver labels And kidzz stuff. Not CCW this time but Walt Disney, Muppets and peanuts. Nothing special worth mentioning. Taz is a perfect example of quantity collecting, same as Asterix but different. Still i was persistant to buy this after i already but Asterix

9 20th Century Fox

9 20th Century Fox

I like the games for some reason, maybe the labels, maybe the games themselves i cannot tell... I remember buying my first TCF Porky's and i thought it was some Taiwanees bootleg at that time, not knowing there is so much more out there besides Activision Atari or Imagic... That was last week! (That's A Joke 🙂)
