    Default The start of my collection

    Hi all
    my name is nigel and i come from England, i have recently discovered the wonderful world of faceplate collecting by accident via an ebay listing (the XBA website was on a listing for a custom made plasma grenade from halo)
    so i signed up and sold my soul to the faceplate gods and started with these


    dead rising and viva pinata


    football manager 2006 and virgin megastore


    rainbow 6 vagas 2 and lost planet

    i also have a call of duty 2 (which is on my 360) i know its more than likely to be a fake (didn't pay much for it, thankfully)

    my main source is ebay and i try to keep to a limit, i have some others coming, i'll post them when i get them

    i look forward to any help and experience you guys can give

    iam also thinking about doing some customs so expect to see me asking all sorts of questions on that thread too

    cheers
    nigel

    UPDATE
    these 3 came yesterday (the postman must love me)


    test drive unlimited, stranglehold and ghost recon advance warfighter

    more are coming

    thanks for the warm welcome guys, i have updated the original post with 3 more faceplates

    with regards to my wishlist, if i haven't got it then i want it

    if anyone has any doubles that want a good home then let me know i'm sure we could strike a deal for them

    i have been asking about faceplates in my local game stores with no luck, of course the staff say 'i have this and that'

    keep checking back for updates
