Yeah it's an original arcade marquee on 'plexi' plastic so quite durable... as there's a version of the Micro Vs Boxing renamed as Punch Out (I have it loose in the top right corner) I thought it would look good as a backdrop to the collection if I ever put them on display.
Excellent Nintendo collection, very awesome I think it´s the biggest I see Definitely I missed these little artworks (I only had the fantastic orange Donkey Kong) Liking a lot the miniclassics, and maybe a chance to get several of these, in good price, nowadays.
I´m agree with you about keep only the Vectrex stuff and other interesting line (VFD machines, in my case). I´m selling my old computers (too many devices at home) and keeping only the most loved stuff.
Impressive! I've personally never owned a Game & Watch handheld, but they definitely pushed the industry forward in their time.
Yes, the LCD technology popularized the use of these machines. Previously you only could get a very expensive LED or VFD little device. Manufacturing costs were reduced with these screens, decreasing the final price of the product. Also, the batteries lasted much longer. It joins with a vast supply of good games and you get a winner horse. (at any rate, the VFD system also produced a good amount of fantastic machines Definitely the 80´s were very creatives)

Cheers guys, I completed the collection about 8 years or more ago but recently dug them out and figured they should get some love!
Bought a few more boxes/boxed games just lately... I have 60/60 games and 30/60 boxes... no way I'll stump up the cash required for the rarest boxed games but there's a few common ones I still need boxed so scope to collect some more!
I have a fair few VFD games in the loft and a lot of other console and computer stuff... think most all will be sold in the coming months to just leave the core things I like to collect.
I received a boxed Popeye Tabletop today to complete my set of tabletop boxes. Not mint by any stretch but "good enough".
That takes me to 56 Boxed! I think I need to do another group pic of the games out on display like the first one in this thread.
Also the tabletop itself is much nicer than my old Popeye which had my only missing battery cover and serial number!
I've also got nicer boxes lately for Fire Attack and Popeye Widescreen so really getting a nice collection together.... oh yeah, my newly acquired Nintendo Space Fever cocktail cab from 1979 makes an excellent stand for photographic displays!
