So I am guessing I will need to create a Mean Machines section soon ;)

:laughing: Well, soon might be a bit early. Still have to get through the Sega Saturn magazines and I was planning on doing the Paul Davies CVG years after those.

But I'm thinking of possibly going from one mag to another once in a while as it would create more variety.

Have to think about how to handle that though.

I also just notice the Mega Play magazines.

Not sure if I missed that post or if I simply had a blackout and forgot everything about it, but those seem so sweet. :happy:

I'm also looking into another magazine, but I won't post it here now until I have them.

Otherwise I might shoot myself in the foot and someone else might snipe them from before my nose. :wink:

Just as I expected, there were 4 snipers laying there waiting to pick me off at the last moment, but looks like their aim was a bit off today. :fear:

It cost quite a bit of money, and I'm sure I'll be hurting even more by the shipping costs, but the complete set of 29 Sega Mega Tech magazines from the UK are ours.

Spanning from 1991 to 1994 during the Megadrive years, I think we're in for a treat. :happy:

I won a November 1994 issue of GamePro that I want to send to someone on here. I PM'ed Phillyman, but he has yet to respond. Any scanners who want to scan it can PM me their address and I will try to get the seller to ship it to you.

You can send it to me. I will take care of scanning it. PM me and I will give you the details.

I can even bump it up on my scanning queue so that after it gets here, I will do it next.

Yeah, it's around $270.

Thought it would be closer to $200 or less.

I haven't even thought about reselling magazines tbh. Never sold anything on eBay yet.

Anyone who is interested in EGM should take a look at this auction. 6 issues from 1992, including the mega awesome December 1992 issue. Mega awesome because it's 290 pages :D. I know some of those 6 issues are already scanned (2 or 3); I'd be willing to buy the issues already done, or donate towards the cost of the auction.

3.5 days left!

EDIT: Actually, here are a pile more:

9 Issues from 1991

8 Issues from 1992 (including the awesome Dec. 1992 issue!)

All 12 issues from 1993

10 issues from 1994 including the 400-page+ December issue!

8 issues from 1995

WOW! What an opportunity. If help is needed with funds, I can help out a bit to make sure this site gets those magazines. Just PM me if you need assistance.

A big thanks from me as well, Monkeybot!

There are some great mags in there, and I'm especially looking forward to the one and only GameGo! issue! I've heard such great things about it and it has quite a story behind it, so I can't wait to finally be able to read that one! :happy:
