    Well a quick glance I don't think I see any MSX or MSX2 machines.

    I personally recommend the Yamaha CX5M as it had alot more options then the early MSX machines, all tho the floppy drive hookup was a real pain in the ass, but the built-in midi and piano keyboard was a real plus.

    [​IMG]

    I had three full setups of them, until one day I was out of town for a conference, and my rent was due on my 3 storey penthouse at only $8,000 per month, and that was back in the 90s, and landlord thought I skipped out of town, so he took the 3 systems knowing it was already back then worth a ton more then my rent that was due.

    Then from there on I would suggest adding some 'Apple' machines to your collection, like at least a Classic Mac those are still in the affordable price range to pick up, all tho ones earlier then that you might need to be a millionaire to buy now, those that still have them are laughing all the way to the bank, like now an original first ipod classic with the wheel is worth $20k easy-as-pie even more if you push the buyer with some little extras like original boxing and news clippings from that time period all sealed up.

    Lasty, even tho there is tons of various PC clones and PC out there, still good to have in collection is one of weird babies like the IBM PC Jr. with the cartridges and other stuff, or one of the other original PC's, things like the Compaq SLT/286 one of the first laptops, wish I didn't get rid of mine two (one I had even modded to have 486 installed in it), are worth a ton now.

    Then there is other good side things to get like maybe that Robot addon for NES, or even better an actual Hero-1 or one of the other fully stand-alone micro-programable robots, they are neat thing to have to impress friends, push a button and your robot comes out, grabs the cartridge you want and brings it over to you or inserts into the machine! :)

    Anyhow, that is all I can think of for now.

    msx, i dont have, guess i really should pick up at least a hx-10, i have had both msx and msx 2+ in the past.

    rotten fruit, really not bothered, again i used to have a ][+ full setup.

    i actually have quite a few retro pc's but the only one of any note is the bondwell i have listed.

    i have the rob add on for nes and as for other bots i have an aibo somewhere but its not really a console / computer system so not listed.

    Well how about 'ADAM' the full standalone computer system with those two digitial high speed tape decks in front and the attached daisy wheel printer which intact powered the whole setup that was ready an colecovision turned into a computer without expansion modules, all-in-one.

    yeah, thats not a bad call, someone elsewhere suggested either aquarius or intllivision ecs also good suggestions.

    however for now i have something else in negotiation i should know by thursday but until then it remains a secret ;)

    only hints i'll give is it ends in "H", has rgb out as standard but uses a custom cable which i'm going to have to get made owing to its rarity.

    ok, another one snuck in, couldn't resist a boxed nintendo family computer complete with paperwork, it'll be a while before it makes its way from japan but hopefully the wait will be worth it, now i just need to locate some cassettes to play on it.

    There was an archive someplace, I forgot offhand with digital backups on of the cassettes you can restore to blank tapes with the right equipment.

    Post pictures of course once you get -----H in and this one! :)

    sad to report the one ending in h ended up a no buy, 2 reasons 1) i couldnt get the pinouts for the video out (8 pin din) and 2) once price was agreed he wanted way too much in postage just for a unit without box, paperwork or even psu so i scrapped it altogether.

    anyway went on a pity shopping spree, picked up a casio fx-720pf, an a/v modded 2600 jr darth vader edition (irish exclusive), a set of 2600 heavy paddles and a donkey kong country competition cart.

    Sorry to hear about the 'H' unit.

    Another thought about collecting is maybe some 'pocket computers' and such, I collect a few of those over the years, like this one:

    [​IMG]

    A quick view of it taken from the 'net with the expansion device, for printer, cassette and charging.

    TRS-80 made a few different models of these, but I found this first design one pictured above to be the most fun, even tho it was limited in its basic functions, compared to later improved designs like the one below:

    [​IMG]

    Of course then once you into the Trashly-Shack line-up, you might as well collect at least one of these babies then:

    [​IMG]

    Those are my thoughts for the day. -- We should start a new feature, Retro Look Back, a different machine each week, full in-depth coverage, or something! :)

    well, i've got a couple of years worth of systems ;) however just at present i can't see it working, with only us posting here and only 6 having even looked at this thread (all except 1 are mods / admin) unless we can get the retro forums busy again.

    the 720pF i bought is very similar to the one you showed, the add on memory cards are different (more like smartmedia) and it has 32k rom and 4k ram instead of 16k rom and 2k ram for the one you showed, it too has a printer / casette interface, main difference is the keys have many more functions as its also a full scientific calculator and databank too.

    heck no, its listed under mb (milton bradley) vectrex and microvision, i have both and a vectrex 72 in 1 multicart and a 16 in 1 flashcart sadly owing to the design of the microvision there will never be a flashcart for that (the carts contain not only the program but also the screen overlay and all the buttons).

    How about a flashcart with a e-ink LCD screen on the front to change the overlay, and touchbar type setup for buttons like the new MacBook Pro laptop.

    wouldnt work (and would cost a fortune) the upto 16 buttons are just the tops (individually marked for each game) the actual physical contact mat and sensors are built onto the circuit board with the screen and cart slot.

    i have seen something similar done on the vectrex with a transparent color lcd used to emulate the overlays however.
