Thrill Of The Chase: Retro Buzz at Carrara

RetroBuzz_Carrara_HDRThere is nothing better than going to a weekend market and finding a stall that sells retro gaming gear, and lots of it!

That was the case when we found the Retro Buzz stall at the Carrara Markets on the sunny Gold Coast. What we found there was a treasure-trove of old school systems from Nintendo, Sega, Atari, Commodore, Sony and Microsoft. To complement these retro systems, Retro Buzz also had a vast array of game cartridges, CDs and other games media from every era – you would have been hard pressed not to have found the game you were after!

Once we were done with the retro hunt, we enjoyed a few games of Alex Kidd In Miracle World on the Master System and then dropped a few coins on the arcade machines. If you do find yourself on the Gold Coast and need your retro hunt fix, then you can’t go wrong with hitting the Retro Buzz stall at Carrara!

Welcome to Carrara Markets! Woohoo!

Aha, found what we were looking for!

Trade, Buy AND Sell! They have every system covered!

No retro stall is complete without a Mario and Luigi display!

We spy some N64 and SNES consoles over Luigi’s shoulder!

We could have a ComLynx party with these beauties!

Mario crashes the Sega party!

Pro-tip: Grab some Atari Lynx games while they are cheap!

Stacks of Sega Mega Drive games to choose from!

Not to be outdone by its bigger 16-bit Sega brother – stacks of Master System games!

The SNES games demand your attention!

Whoa, more SNES games!

Game Boy games galore!

*GULP* It was hard to resist this Pokemon N64 console!

Found the NES treasure! Don’t worry about Zela, look at that P.O.W cart!

NES games always demand premium prices

Old school computer games! VIC-20 represent!

Oo’er, Game Gear games!

After a fruitful hunt like this, an arcade session is in order!

Vans X Nintendo: Powered Up Streetwear

VansXNintendo_HDRIt is great being on holiday – nothing beats being relaxed and away from your every day concerns! On our recent trip to Queensland’s Gold Coast, where it is beautiful one day and perfect the next, we happen to stumble across the Vans store at the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre. To our surprise, the store featured a complete Vans X Nintendo range by having an eye catching display at the front of their store.

We obviously didn’t need much coaxing to enter the Vans store once the exclusive 8-bit Nintendo graphics inspired gear caught our attention. The Vans X Nintendo range includes all of your fave Nintendo characters in an assortment of streetwear; from shoes, trucker’s hats, backpacks, to ties, socks, t-shirts and long-sleeve sweaters! Oh yeah, there are sizes for the little ones too!

So get “Off The Wall” and check out what we found at the Vans store on the Gold Coast…

Vans Gold Coast! What do we have here then…..

Woohoo, the Vans X Nintendo Collection is ranged!

So much to see and touch! What do we look at first?

Cool runners (that’s sneakers for our American friends)

Oo’er, we REALLY like these NES inspired runners!


Tough choice: Donkey Kong or Duck Hunt…..

Mario and Luigi’s personal parking spots!

CIB – complete in box! Gotta try some!

The level of detail is phenomenal!

Gonna keep this!

Whoa, the kids can don their Vans X Nintendo gear too!

Vans X Nintendo is where the heart is…

We didn’t walk away empty handed *wink*VansXNintendo_box

We had to get the cool NES runners!

Oh yes, the collectable pins given away were a great surprise!

It’s never GAME OVER!

Brisbane Retro Hunting: Gametraders

GametradersBris_HDRGametraders stores may have gone the way of the dodo bird in metropolitan Melbourne, but they are still going strong in the suburbs of Brisbane!

Hitting the Gametraders store at Westfield Chermside Shopping Centre brought back memories of how we used to enjoy hunting for retro gaming gear at the Highpoint store, which sadly closed a few months ago.

So what did we find at Gametraders Chermside? Take a peek down below. *winks*

Let’s get hunting!

What do we have here then?

The Perfect Mega Drive Street Fighter II weapon: The Honey Bee SF-3

We spy more Nintendo controllers and Game Boy games!

We want this game!


Atari Lynx gear amongst the NES and SNES juggernaut!
