A long time ago...
It was 1991, I was 9 years old and I was given my first handheld console as a birthday present. To this day I still remember the unboxing of the SEGA Game Gear and Joy it gave me for hours on end for years to come.
fast forward 29 years and I wanted to relive that experience and so bought a broken Game Gear and some capacitors and with no soldering experience I managed to fix it. To my shock I very quickly realised the old screen was terrible and playability was no where near that of today’s Modern consoles. I read in forums there were screens out there that could now be installed to give the console new life. I bought one and gave the install a go and when done, my mind was blown…. a modern screen in a 30 year old console!!
Straight after I wanted to customise it and make it my own, using skills I learnt from other hobbies I painted my first themed Game Gear in the style of a famous Coke brand. I loved the way it turned out, I wanted to make more.
With the experiences learned from building my own Game Gear, I wanted to be able to recreate that unboxing experience I felt in 1991, not just for people from the 90’s era but for everyone, unboxing a ‘Modernised’ piece of history for adults and the youth of today to enjoy a once great console, reimagined and fit for the world we live in today.
With this in mind, I built this website for people to buy a piece of history and enjoy it for years to come.
I use high quality parts from manufacturers such as RetroKai, Retrosix and Mr Hobby to create these consolesI
