Swingin’ Report Show #85: Interview with The Dreamcast Junkyard founder Tom Charnock

On this episode of the SEGAbits Swingin’ Report Show we’re joined by Tom Charnock, founder of the The Dreamcast Junkyard and co-creator of The Dreamcast Junkyard: The Ultimate Collectors Guide. Tom talks to us about the creation of the information-packed collectors guide, the legal issues they faced, and what they are planning for future revisions of the book. Also covered are the indie Dreamcast games slated for 2016, which include Leona’s Tricky Adventures, SLaVE and Alice Dreams Tournament, Tom’s plans for a heavily modded and tricked out Dreamcast console, and the state of Dreamcast collecting.

  1. That’s too bad about not being able to sell the Dreamcast Collector’s Guide online. Couldn’t they maybe have a phone number and flyer?

  2. Lenticular Leo says:

    I’m sure a lot of Sega were for the book, most of Sega even, but one or two who call the shots, who disagreed for some reason, saw something that the rest of us didn’t see, something managerial.
    However, I still can’t imagine the beneficial reasons for why whoever at Sega reasoned why it wasn’t a good idea.
    Maybe it’s a lot more subtle than it appears.
