That cart is cool as hell... but the "I need a box (a cardboard box, like other NES games) and manual" collector in me says I can't do it. I've been eyeing another repo EB Zero that has the box/manual but the cart is nowhere near as cool...

 

$150 is a bit rich for my blood but most of the impressions I've read about Wiggy's stuff seems to say that the premiums are well worth the quality, versus other ROM dumps. I'm sure if he mass produced these, they'd be cheaper but they probably wouldn't be as nicer either.

Don't get me wrong, it looks great, the 3D printer is really coming in handy but I can't justify the price on any repro. This game artistically really stands out, I wish the cart would look more like a traditional NES cart but I'm guessing he had his reasons for doing it that way.

LOL! It's not gonna be for everyone, and I get that.

Trust me, if I could make any cheaper, I would. There's just a TON of work that goes into every one. I was really close to doing the box/manual thing, but it would have ended up bumping the price higher, not to mention how much more work I would have to put in (and that's something that I'm already having a hard time managing).

The reason I do pretty much everything the way I do is to NOT be like everyone else. It's not terribly difficult to put the game on a board and then paint a shell red. Lots of folks offer that sort of thing. My goal is to offer something that nobody else does, but that often means a lot of extra work on my part, which means I can't sell this sort of thing for what everyone else does.

I don't think any of my customers actually play the games that they've purchased from me. Any that I've talked to since have said that they'd rather keep sealed up and on display. I honestly can't feel too bad about that. It feels good to know that people want to keep something that I made up on display :D

I got my first big boy shelf today....I must say I am in love with it so far.  Seeing pretty much my whole collection on one unit is awesome :D

Finally got my game room 95% set up.  All of my current gen stuff is in my living room as well as PS2/GC/Wii games.  One of the walls of the room is for my wife's crafting.

 

Here's the back wall with the shelf that has my games on it.  The big tote on top is all handheld stuff.  My cat has also claimed the chair as her own.

 

20130705_1420251.jpg

 

This is most of my controllers.  Everything on top is just stuff I haven't done anything with yet.

20130705_1420421.jpg

 

My bookshelf with all of my Nintendo Powers and game boxes.  On top is a model 1 Gen/Sega CD.  Model 2 SMS, and mini SNES.  There's a couple random gaming-related board games on there too.  Some of my specialized controllers are on one shelf and there's a RedOctane DDR pad hiding behind it.

20130705_1421091.jpg

 

My audio tower with some of my systems.  Virtual Boy and Power Glove on top.  Atari 2600, XBox, Sega Saturn, Gamecube w/gameboy player, 3DO, and Sega Master System.

20130705_1421281.jpg

 

The TV stand with the rest of the systems.  Wii, N64, PS2, NES, SNES, Intellivision w/voice module, Sega Genesis/CD, Dreamcast.  All of the systems are hooked up with a series of 3 switch boxes, 3 power strips, and about 50 velcro cable ties.  I've got half of the systems plugged into 1 strip and the other half into a 2nd.  Both of those are plugged into a 3rd with the TV and one of the switch boxes (the only one that needs a power source) so I never have more than the TV and a few systems getting power at one time so I won't overload the circuit.  The famicom controller thing is a clock.

20130705_1421361.jpg

 

Not much over here.  Mostly my wife's crafting stuff, but I have one of my posters over here so I took a pic

Man, this is what I'm waiting to do when I move to my new place... I wanna get some of those shelves that let you see a large collection at once. They just look so much better that way.

Looks great man. What kind of a shelf is that (the black one in the back)?

Thanks.

 

Now that I think about it, I wonder how these things are delivered to apartments. My car isn't big enough for something that sized so I can't pick it up and I'll be at work most of the day so if they leave it at my door, I'll be screwed.

They get delivered UPS, Fed Ex or other alternate carriers. I've delivered Bowflex machines to 2nd story apartments, those aren't fun! The only problem I've come across with shelving like that is making sure it arrives in one piece. Some guys are assholes and just leave the stuff at the door.

Well... I guess if you carry something that heavy up multiple floors and there's no answer at the door, you don't wanna take it back down. Turns out the apartments I'm looking at have a central receiving but they close before I'll get home.:-/

Where did you get all of these wall decals? It's great to see some love for Bionic Commando and Blaster Master, which were basically my favorite games as a kid.

They're just perlers and I made them all myself.  I'll probably add some more eventually.  I just need to pick some other games to make them from.

A lot of people sell bead art on Etsy. You might be able to get someone to custom make you some if you can't find one you like. Here's a bunch of Mega Man stuff.

I could never find what I wanted (like SOPHIA in mid hover) so I just made them myself.  I've thought about selling them on etsy.  I just never wanted to make a ton of them and have them never sell.   I'd be willing to custom make them for people if they really wanted.  I find it kind of relaxing to do.

I think I'll try my hand at making a couple of things first. These beads are quite cheap (unlike the premade designs!) and I have way too much free time that gets wasted on boring crap.

Well I decided to rearrange some stuff and I'm getting rid of some furniture. Biggest change here is that I'm getting rid of a TV stand and a 27" tv that have been for my old school stuff. I rarely use that setup anymore. I know, kind of sad. But I don't have the time to play my old school stuff much. I enjoy my newer stuff my more plus I have an internship going on and college for one more year. I do still have a setup, though much smaller for my old school stuff. I will buy another TV for that shelf, but it will be pretty small and will be used to test stuff I buy at yard sales. I buy and sell a lot on CL and eBay. I have so much stuff in my house from this that I had to put some things in my moms office and basement. Because I'm taking out some furniture, I will be able to fit everything, except for a foosball table I bought last week. Unfortunately  business on CL has been slow because everyone in my area is too cheap. I do damn well at the area I attend college at, but not at home.

 

So here are some pics.

Computer area. Have my Macbook plugged into a PS 3D Display. The shelf to the right is my small old school setup. Will have a small TV for that placed on top of the gray shelf. Games are on the bookshelf to the right of that, which actually spins 360 degrees which is cool.

Hmm my favorite thread on CAG seems to have died recently, so I figured it'd be a good time to post a look at my recently revitalized handheld collection. Growing rather quickly considering a month or two I had like none of these.

Anyone looking for Faselei for Neo Geo Pocket Color? Here's a copy for $27.97 shipped. It is the UK version, I know because I ordered one and it showed up today. I know some prefer US versions but the system is region free and this is entirely in English. You are very unlikely to ever see the US version cheaper than this... thought I'd pass the word along.

I haven't posted an update since that first week after 3.0 went up, so I wouldn't have noticed.

 

Well that'll certainly make it much easier then for when I update next time. ^__^
