My name is
Alessandro Romano' and I'm a vintage handheld games collector from Italy. You might have encountered me on eBay with the nickname of "tanatron". I'm collecting handheld games going from the first LED based ones of the mid-late '70s to the beautiful VFDs (vacuum fluorescent display) of the first '80s. The only LCD exceptions are for my beloved baseball games (I really love this game!) and for those lcd games that for various reasons deserve to be a part of my collection :

639 games

of which :

610 boxed and 29 loose

I hope you'll enjoy !

The COMPLETE Tomy 3D games Series

I finally made it! I completed one of the most sought after game series : the Tomy 3D games Series! The series is made of beautifully shaped binocular like games, some of them even feature stereo sounds. Definitively cool! Even cooler are the box artworks especially the japanese ones. Check them out!
