The handhelds are great fun. In the cabinet are cassettes, DVDs, more handhelds, then just assorted figurines...a few old Star Wars ones, some Mario, Lego, ninja turtles etc etc

I love your 80's theme room. All of it captures the spirit of the 80's and early 90's. I also noticed those Coleco tabletops. Those things are coming up in value.

 

Here is a video I took of mine when I dug them out of the closet.

 

 

It's cool how we all have the items we loved so dear growing up. Here is me with the blaster of choice one evening with my C-64 from the 80's :-) Happy days. I still use it today to keep track of my company's price list :-)
