I got alot from gamestation aswell. alot of the stuff from ebay was in bulk so Ive got well over 100 swaps aswell now (other than my collection mentioned befor). I like the idea of trading on here for other games rather than selling on ebay. how do I go about it?

Just post a list of what you have avlaible in the Wanted/Trade section of the forum. You should also put CBI next to each game title to signify wether it has the box, cart and instructions. Theres a good traders post in there too, so you can see which members are trustworthy, basically all of us apart from retroblob79

I think everyone just tends to go a little bit crazy at first when discovering you can buy SMS games on eBay - I paid a helluva lot for common games at first just for the "want it now" factor.
I did this the other way around. When i started buying sms games on ebay, i would only pay £2 a game, and thats including postage!. But as my collection got more and more complete i got impatient and started bidding a lot higher.
Well to be honest, I never had a master system when I was a child, I was a Nintendo kid. A few of my mates had SMS's. I can remember swapping consoles and spending a lot of time playing Golden Axe Warrior.
Now a good few years down the line I've started putting together a good collection of consoles/computers that I either owned or had a loan of at some point during my life. The SMS has been the latest one to add to my collection.
Also being into modifying hardware I hope to put some of my knowledge in the SMS scene.
Thanks for the excellent welcome guys (and girls)!
I've been on and off collecting for a while now (well thats not really true, I just cant throw anything away).
So far, on the computer front I have...
1 x Commodore 64 (unmodified) 1 x Commodore VIC20 (Custom built 28K RAM Upgrade) 1 x TC2048 (AY addon, 244k RAM Upgrade, and more) 1 x ZX Spectrum +3 (3GB IDE hard drive, 4MB RAM, 2 x 3.5" Floppy drives, Stereo sound upgrade)
And on the console front...
1 x Atari 2600 (Unmodified at present) 1 x Nintendo (NES) (Stereo sound, lockout disabled, built in snes controller port) 3 x SNES (UK-PAL units) (50/60Hz switch, region lockout switch, clip in glass fuse) 2 x Super Famicom (50/60Hz switch, region lockout switch, clip in glass fuse) 1 x SMS (MS1) (Unmodified at present) 1 x SMD (MD1) (Overclocked, many ext clocks via switch) 2 x N64 (Overclocked, 1x, 2x and 3x muliplier via switch, RGB output + signal booster) 1 x PS2 (more mods than you can shake a stick at) 1 x Gamecube (ViperGC, various funky led mods)
Thats my collection so far. I like to keep myself busy so I usually have a few projects for each system going at a time.
EDIT: I forgot to mention...I also have 1 x Girlfriend (Unmodded.....for the moment)
Unfortunately my games collection is pretty weak. I spend more time messing with the hardware than playing games. But when I do play a game, I'm usually at it for ages.
For most of the systems I posted above, I have a method of transferring software from the pc to the unit so I've held back on getting alot of games. I'm getting my spare room setup at the moment for keeping all of these machines. When I get them all setup I'm going to hammer into building up a cart collection.
