    Retro goodness - seen anything interesting?

    I've recently(ish) moved into a new place, and I've got a bit of a retro bee in my bonnet.

    Was just wondering if anybody had seen any retro goodness around the interwebs for sale?

    I'll start with my newly purchased Pac Man alarm clock

    Now that would be amazing, I had been looking at getting an arcade cab and hiding a PC running MAME inside it.... where did you get the cab if you don't mind me asking?

    Pub shutting down, and stuff was being sold off. Missed out on a cocktail table version of the game and settled for the standup cab instead. Was taken out of use ages ago and was never collected and so was sold off ... to me Quite collectable and was a fave in its day and it works a treat. No keys for the locks though ... grrr.

    Spot of luck then! I've poked around eBay a few times but haven't seen anything I would consider a real bargain... I may bite the bullet and build one from scratch...

    I picked up a NES from eBay for about £15 with a few games (and have since spent about £50 on additional games!) and a Mega Drive for £5 on the market, both of those are good for laughs when I have mates round

    I want to get an Atari 2600 though, just because that was the first games console I owned. I love the fact the the Angry Video Game Nerd did a piece on the Indiana Jones game for Atari 2600; I had it and could never get past the part with the witch, having seen that video I now know why!
