[flea market find] - What did you find today?
« on: March 23, 2011, 08:22:07 PM »
I usually lurk (mostly because I have nothing good or interesting to write), but not today  :D

A few weeks ago I went to the local flea market looking for the usual: old games and old audio gear (including records). Most of the time I don't find anything interesting, but I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw these two just sitting there! A near mint DK? No way...
I picked up the DK and asked the lady how much? 2€ (15kn local currency)? I'll take the Mickey and Donald too!!!

At first I figured I'd sell them, but the DK grew on me real fast (Mickey and Donald not so much) it's a lot more fun then I expected (I usually suck at LCD games).
So anyway, now I'm looking for a case to put them in so they don't get any more scuffs =]

I haven't played any of those handhelds lately, but the one's I remember were DK and DKjr.

Back then I thought LCD games were toys. But those games were very good indeed...

Nice catch, both games are great. ;D
If we can take care of them, I can bring my collection to Eurocade, I have all the multi screen nintendos and many, many more... ;)

Yes, bought it half a year ago on a hungarian auction site for 10 eur with 10 cartridges. :D
I can throw it to that wagon if you would like to try it out. ;D

Sorry Belike, the Hungarian built TV's never made it to Western Europe in those days ;) ;)

Damn....Videopac.....probably the only game console that has WORSE graphics then the 2600. Every game looked the same because of the internal characters being used....still some fun games (Happelaar !)

I've got the perfect monitor for your C64 though:


However, this will probably displaying my Atari 8 bit machines too :)

It is rumored that this monitor is the ONLY Commodore product to have ever entered Level42's house. The reason is that it really is a Toshiba inside, and it's a great partner for the A8 machines :)
