    Hi guys and gals. I've been collecting on and off for 25 years but have been to it SERIOUSLY since April 15th 2014 and now I'm at a level that I can display my young collection. Keep in mind that I'm not a "completionist" type collector. So I solely go for games and console that I like. That is the reason why the game part of that collection (now being at roughly 150 games across all platforms) will never exceed 1600 and the systems part has been set at 85 (half way there). I have a predetermined checklist that I update regularly that helps me to achieve that goal. I post this thread mainly as a reference for myself so I could see my progression. Also it's meant to be there so I can gather information/suggestion from all you experienced collectors. So, please enjoy.

    Thanks for sharing. Unfortunately, most of the photos (and your gaming setup one, too) appear to have been deleted - or the link is just incorrect. Could you edit the links so they work? Some nice stuff in the last picture, though! What's the PAX Power Glove? Mine is Mattel.

    By the way, your posts were caught by the auto moderation system - probably because you're a new user posting links. It's a little overzealous like that, but it stops the spam! ;) If you notice any posts not showing up immediately, just sit tight and a moderator will eventually approve it. It should stop after a few posts ;)

    Thanks for the reply. Every thing should be alright. The pax is the Japanese version of the Matel. Exact same thing in my opinion as I own both. Just that my matel is not boxed that why it is not there. But according some websites the pax is a little more precise as the sensors are better. I personally call B.S.

    Very clean gaming setup, I would love to have something similiar.
    Collecting CIB games is so much cooler, isn't it ?

    I saw your collection on NintendoAge the other day.
    It's a very nice collection.
    It's always good to see more Panzer Dragoon Saga along with Earthbound in someone's collection.
    Congrats!

    I see you have a Wondermega RG-M1. I have the same model. It is a very beautiful system. I'm not sure if I prefer the Victor or the Sega model, though I do like the fact that the Victor model has the Mega Drive/Mega CD sticker, which the Sega model doesn't have. I imagine that could get messed up pretty easily if you didn't take very good care of the system (which I do). Mine is sitting on my shelf, but it's not connected right now, because I've had some issues with the power adapter. I want to either fix the original power adapter or get another one. I found out that there's a Canon camera power adapter that has the same voltage and amperage as the Wondermega adapter, so I may eventually get one of those.

    I see you have a 64DD, too. I'd really like to own one of those. The Panasonic Q is really cool, too.

    I personally prefer the Victor because they came with that original design, and Sega just copied it. Not that I don't find the glossy lid appealing but had Sega changed a little more than just the cosmetic side of the house I'd probably would have gotten that one. I just love the look of that Q, but my favourite GC is that Customized Gundam Char's one. I don't know there is just something unique about it...

    Thank you very much. I love when things are organized. As I mentioned in another thread, I'm finalizing my design of a new entertainment unit. I'm very excited to start working on it. The only thing missing is TIME. I really don't have any to spear these days. Soon hopefully.

    It's funny you mentioned that, cause I was planning on doing it sometime before these holidays. I'll post pictures of final result.

    Nice choice with the Lunar games ! But you are one year too late with that 3DS, this year it's the Super Smash bros. version.

    Lol you are right, I'm a year late, but as I stated in the beginning of this thread, I'm a very selective collector and I rarely buy NEW stuffs. Also I'm absolutely NOT interested in all those ''LAZY'' Limited Edition where they took a black console and added a newly painted shell. The only other 3DS XL I might consider buying are the NES Retro and the Picatchu versions although I hate Pokemon so I'll probably never get that one.
