This morning wakeup 7h30 for a small flea market in a small village lost in the mountains 10 minutes from my house. With only 100 exhibitors announced, I had relatively little hope at the outset to find something. However, there was a booth with a guy who was selling games Famicom (de merde) with a mobile Famiclone, an Nes, a Vectrex with games, 2 DMG, Dingoo and a lot of DBZ figures, but when I asked a few prices, everything was “collector” and so hyper expensive. So I spent my way, especially since the M. was more than uncomfortable (the spears a m'a “how it is expensive ?” limit myself withdrawing products from the hands…). A good start which is nice in the morning… I confess that apart from some Mickey Parade and a manual Beaver Junior, I thought I would find anything else. But but but… Continue reading →
Always in my console started coming from countries more or less exotic, I present here two of my latest acquisitions, a Famicom the first model sold only in Hong Kong, a model quite rare since few distributed, and which has very interesting features. Then a Super Famicom,, with a small level feature video output. Both consoles are complete, with their box, even if they were obviously well lived. A ticket that is close to my heart since I lived some years in Hong Kong ! Continue reading →

All en piste ! Continue reading →
As of Monday 15 August, I realized at the stroke of 10am at a garage of approximately 200 Exhibitors to 15 minutes from my house. It was during a friendly meeting with a collector's corner who sold a lot of games at great prices, and with whom I exchanged my contacts and cut a flap. I must say that since I left Paris, I do not know many people in my corner of Southwest (“IRL” ? but what you mean ?). It was nice, so much so that I have never spent much a garage sale ! After Twitter, Here are a much better overview of my findings. Continue reading →
Purchased as much for its design as its function, I finally fell for a Super Multitap 2 pour but Super Famicom. It is an object that was present on my Wish-List for a while and I finally bought the turning of a good deal (= I bought something at the base). In effect since Hudson Soft is no longer, I have to say right or wrong, that this kind of object was not about to see its price fall in the future, as already 3/4 offered on ebay are loose and yellowed… It was time to checkout, especially since a few months before I had acquired Super Bomberman 3.
