Hey fellow collectors and curious cats! Not much to report - still don't have any space to really work with so I been limited to what I been picking up. However I had a great general find at a garage sale. Got a PS2 - 2 model 1 genesis - 2 model 2 genesis- 1 model 1 Sega CD - 1 Nintendo 64...all for...$20 bucks. Tested the PS2 and cleaned it up and it works all fine and dandy...it's obvious someone had these packed away in their musty basement for years. The 64 works and I haven't had a chance to check the Genesis' yet as I had to clean an area up around my TV lol. Unfortunately the Sega CD unit is missing the front cover, so the insides are showing and are quite dirty...not sure if it works..I'm going to test it anyways because finding model 1 Sega CD units...well...lets say they aren't often found. I figure if it at least powers on, I can clean it up and take the front cover off a dead unit.
Also found a Blue Boxed re-release version of Night Trap. The lady through it in along with a bunch of Star Wars toys..not like I was going to turn that down!
I wish more people would comment - just saying..it would keep me on here more often. I apologize for being so spotty with my posts...if you have questions or need repair tips feel free to post...
That reminds me...now that I have 4 new units..if any of them have issues and need fixing..I will make video's or take snap shots and make a repair post..I've only been talking about it since my first post lol. Anyways until next time!

Hey guys, sorry to my readers for not updating in near 2 months. There has been so much going on and I just haven't had the time. Also until I get a bigger area to store my games..I had to put a halt on picking new things up...my room is so packed with games and other crap I can barely move lol. Work has been hectic, BUT...we close down every August..so I will have some downtime until September. On another note...I'm launching a new business....some people know I run my parents Garden Center / Farmers Market stand...its great money, but we close during the Winter..and it gets boring....SO....how am I fixing that? ::drum roll::
The Dragons Den : Anime, Comics, Gaming & More
I will have a website up and running sometime this fall. I have a location and this winter will be fixing it up. It is going to be a brick and mortar store in the greater Buffalo, NY area. I will be carrying D20 gaming supplies such as D&D, Pathfinder, etc etc. Anime, Magic the Gathering, Comics, Figures & Collectibles, Movies (horror/sci-fi/fantasy) apparel, and more. We will be boasting a nice sized gaming area for D&D groups, magic tournaments and workshops.
Getting the business moving has taken some time and now just need to work on fixing the place up - our plan is to also set up at different conventions in the North East. Wish me luck! Any thoughts, advice, ideas or comments would be welcome! I have a lot of viewers, but no one really comments. They are always welcome and a good chance for me to talk to fellow collectors and such!
