If you don’t know what we mean, check out the photos below. This guy is well on his way to owning everything Mega-Man related (hell, if there are Mega-Man adult nappies, Robert will find them), but in-between all this he also collects other stuff. Check out Robert’s collection, and Q&A below!
Who are you? And where are you from?
My name is Robert Caselli & I’m from Victoria.
What gaming systems did you grow up with?
At the ripe old age of 6 i got my first video game console from my oldies for my birthday, my childhood grew up with the Atari 2600.
Later on down the track it was the toaster Nes 😀
Describe your collection? What’s the focus? Where are you aiming to end up with it? When did you get started?
My collection is pretty much whatever i like, i get, the main focus though is pretty much my Megaman collection, it is something
i grew up with as a kid and has tuggfed my heartstrings ever since. The aim is to get every megaman item possible, my video game
collection started about 4 or so years ago.
Why did you start collecting? A general love of gaming? Re-living youth?
I started my collection not just for value purposes or the years of wonderful gaming but also so i can pass them down to my kids,
so they will understand the concept of gaming back in the days and maybe appreciate it better then any of us have ever 😀
Do you actively play / use your collection, or are you happy just to admire the shiny stuff sitting on the shelf?
A little from column A & a little from column B 😀
Would you ever sell your collection, or is it with you for life?
Oh God No, these things are my babies 😀 These things will stay with me for my whole life.
What’s your single most prized piece?
Hmm hard to decide, its a toss between my Snes Megaman x3 cart & my Megaman Canvas.
What’s the most you’ve spent on a single item so far? Go on, be honest – no-one is looking I promise.
I spent about $350 for both megaman x2 & x3 in a bundle off ebay, to me it was the best buy i ever got.
What’s something you’re lusting after that you don’t have yet, and why?
There are quite a few items actually, some included megaman legends 1 & 2 on ps1, still trying to get
banjo tooie (CIB), kirby and the crystal shards (CIB), Mario party 3 (CIB), thats just to name a few.
How complete do you consider your collection?
Not even close, and im gopnna keep collecting for as long as i live because im passionate about it 😀
Got any advice for people wanting to start a retro game collection? Where should they start? How should they start?
My advice would be to find cheap bundles & work from there, i have done this with all the consoles i own and now am slowly building
on them, also it gives you a better variety of games to collect.
