If I could divorce my wife and marry wiggyx's shelving unit I would. Any chance you would make a house call to Pittsburgh? I have a simple shelving unit I would like to build in the on corner of my living room.

That's really something to be proud of wiggy, you did a kick ass job!


:)

i would hope so after a year or two of work!!


Hey now, a year of it as a thought in my head and a plan on paper, then just a couple of weeks of on and off work to slap it together ;)

Very nice, Wiggy. Especially that custom drawer pull.

I also want that Light FX, mainly because it's supposed to sink with music. I'm hoping they'll be able to mass produce them and bring the price down.


Thanks!

Yeah, same here. Such a cool item.

LOL!

Well, I tend to make it down that way about once a year because my mother really likes the botanical garden. Usually in September...

Feeling bored this evening so I'm taking pictures of my collection. I'll post up what I have later tomorrow.

The Panasonic Q, I'm jelly now. ='( I always wanted one and I wished they would have released one here in the states.

IKR?! I really wanna mod it, but I'm sorta scared to. It'll NEVER get used if I don't :/

Thought I'd post up what I've acquired so far throughout the years. Many of them are incomplete or need covers printed. I usually only pick up what I like. I'm missing quite a lot of titles but, I'll slowly hunt them down. Anyhow, hopefully you enjoy clicking on through.

I do have a Genesis too but, that's tucked away right now.

Oh yeah, thanks for looking as well.

Some good stuff in there!

I just printed a bunch of covers for some GCN games that I grabbed at the ol' GameStop closeout :)

Great collection... you've given me ideas for a lot of games I need to get. I see you're missing .hack Quarantine... I'm glad I didn't put that one off.

Bah... don't talk about their GC clearance. Fucking pissed about that sale... nothing good in stores and only 3 out of 11 games I bought online work.

That blows :/

I think of it as (nearly) free GCN cases either way. They're hard to come buy these days, so I'll take em where I can get em ;)

Oh, and they didn't come with GC cases... just disc only in shitty generic cases. Now I gotta return them.

Damn, that blows. I was actually swapping cases in while in the store to make sure that I got only GCN cases. The two girls working didn't seem to give a shit LOL!

Yeah...kind of wish I picked that one up all those times I had the chance to. Oh well though, I'll get it later down the road hopefully.

That was one of the reasons I never imported one, they were expensive back then and still expensive now. Are Gamecube cases really hard to come by now? I'm glad I amassed my collection years ago, I would have loved to have a few of the cheaper titles to fill the gaps but it's ok.

Yeah, Nintendo's store is sold out and there were never any good third party replacements for them.

The closest one that kinda looked the same from the outside of the Gamecube case was the old Blockbuster cases (with locking mechanisms). Of coarse they were the full DVD size and had blockbuster on the inside. They look better than the PS2 or black generic CD/DVD cases with rounded edges.

Yup, and as Vinny describes below, aftermarket replacements basically don't exist.

I've actually started re-sleeving even the most beat cases. It's not like they're gonna get less rare any time soon, so I figure I may as well make some lemonade with those GamStop lemons ;)

Man I haven't posted updated pics in quite some time...

Here is JUST the PS2 portion of my collection since I am trying to accumulate the collection I want. I was thinking of starting a thread to discuss future rarities as well as hidden gems I may not have. I do have a small list of games I know I need. Anyways here we go:

I will post pictures of my other stuff soon. :)

Thanks!

Honestly I totally forgot about the Jak games! And I do still need to get the collection on PS3.

Awesome collection Zxt , I could only wish I could ever achieve such a collection. MvC2 ?


My luck with MvC2 has been bad since I sold mine back when the game peaked. I remember selling my pristine copy for like $125 and the same day I sold my mint Gitaroo Man for $100. I have since replaced Gitaroo on the cheap but I can't ever seem to find a compete MvC2. I noticed the price is much lower now on eBay and will eventually pick one up again.

MvC2 on the DC is the way to go. Screw the PS2 version :P


Let there be light!

It's worth mentioning that it only took a $16 light rope kit, a $2 baggy of wire tie downs, and a handful f zip ties to make that happen. True CAG style ;)

LED lights really had to any type of shelving. I stick some overhead LEDs in one of my cabinets just to help me see and was amazed at how good it looks.

I didn't realize ropes could be had for that cheap though, otherwise, I would have gotten those instead.

Zombie, any time :)

I didn't use LEDs ;)

They produce a light that's way too blue for my taste, so these are just incandescent. The light is really nice and warm, which is EXACTLY what I was after :D
