So I’m all out of money and currently have no new additions for the collection. However, over the summer I have really added a lot to the collection and it does look significantly different since my June 2011 picture that I previously had on my Images page.
This picture is very similar to the image I posted when I received my 20th Anniversary Sonic from some close friends but I stepped back at bit so you can see more of my gaming room. When I bought the extra shelf and new TV stand I didn’t consider how much space I have. The arm chair is nearly wedged in between the right shelf and the couch but everything fits well enough for now.
In real life the white wall behind the collection doesn’t looks so stark against the dark furniture. It really does feel more snug and cozy in person. 🙂
I still have to finish the my TV stand by installing two more shelves and putting the back on. I think it will look much neater whenever I finally get to it. I should also clean up the misc stuff under the shelves.
Stepping a little further back you can see a wee bit more of my game room. I was really into collecting Sideshow Collectibles figures until they just got too expensive. So I’m learning to be content with the ones I have. I will still buy new ones if I can find them for under $100, but that’s not going to happen often. I have another cabinet with more along another wall.
I also picked up a RetroDuo Famiclone which you can see just to the right of the TV. It’s not perfect but it plays most NES and SNES carts well enough.
I’ve updated my Archive page with a history/timeline of the collection. With any luck there will be many more update to come 😀
