Title: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Love on July 06, 2012, 11:37:44 AM
Ladies and Gentleman, this is the official US container thread.

We are partnering with Lloyd from CoinOpWarehouse who routinely ships the containers for Pauls50ies (and a lot of others).

CoinOpWarehouse
339 West Antietam Street
Hagerstown, MD 21740

Phone: +1 703-801-1459
E-Mail: lloyd@coinopwarehouse.com

Well, Lloyd offered me a pretty good deal. Arranging for the container and loading it is free. We can get games send to his place and he will also store them for free as long as half the games are bought from him. If we buy less from him, we will have to pay $50 handling fee per game. Still very reasonable.

There are two more reasons that make this a very nice deal. First, he charges VERY fair prices for his games. Second, there is shitloads of nice stuff for sale in the NJ and NY area.

Shipping a 40' container is going to be in the $4500-$5000 range excluding VAT. You can get about 48 games in a 40' container. So, shipping costs per cab are either $100 or $150 (depending on if we need to pay Lloyd $50 handling fee).

VAT will be 19% of cab value plus shipping costs per cab, i.e. shipping $150 + value $200 results in about $70 VAT. There might also be costums duty due, which will be about 9% of the value of the item, i.e. about $20. Alltogether thats $240 max per cab and I am pretty confident that these numbers will cover all costs, but of course cannot be 100% sure.

I don't plan to provide storage, so every buyer will need to make sure his cabs are going to get picked up when the container is being unloaded.

The target harbour will be Bremerhaven most probably, as this is more or less the same distance for all collectors involved. If you are in the UK or Skandinavia or where ever, I am sure that other collectors involved will forward your games to a place a bit closer to you then Bremerhaven.

So, here is the deal with ME:

1 --- You tell me WHAT and HOW MANY games you REALLY want, the grails so to speak. I will try to get those first.
2 --- I keep you updated with possible deals/items for sale.
3 --- You pay to the sellers directly, with the exception of the retailers involved, especially CoinOpWarehouse, as I need to get a valid invoice from them (needed for customs).
4 --- You need to pay for the shipping of your games to the warehouse upfront (depending on shipping quote). I will try to get bulk shipping deals to keep fees really low.
5 --- For every game that makes it into the container I will charge a handling fee of €50. It also needs to get paid upfront.
6 --- You can go and hunt for games yourself of course, just keep me in the loop. (If you get games yourself my €50 handling fee applies too.)

Payment upfront is necessary so I dont have to pay for stuff you ordered. Any thoughts, advice or criticism let me know. I am listening.

And please check the CoinOpWarehouse facebook site every day, as there is exciting stuff getting added on a daily base. (The ebay account is NOT the place to check for what they have!)

Cheers, Thomas

I would be interesting in  a Tron, but can't see it in the list.
Still prefer the old school style sale, it would be much better if you can post the gamelist here with prices and if there is any interest, you can ask for pics/condition description from the sellers.

The prices do look reasonable, especially of the list just above this reply. But I´m wondering, who establishes that games are in excellent condition, or mint, or whatever. Are there phot´s available. And is your ´fee´ in those prices?

Another question, let´s pick the popular game Tempest as an example. According the wanted list in the spreadsheet there are 5 people interested in this game, starting with Timepilot. Now a Tempest turns up in the above list, how are we proceeding with this game then (as an example)? Does the number two have to wait until the number one (in casu Timepilot) made his decision? And the number 3,4 and 5 so on. What if they moved on to another game.

- I just paste what the sellers tell me.
- We won't buy any game without getting ALL necessary info beforehand, i.e. pics, description etc. Let me know what you want to know.
- My fee is not included in the prices.
- As isnt shipping costs to CoinOpWarehouse, unless stated otherwise.

It's simply first-come first-served. You want to buy something? Let me know. Someone else contacted me before you did? Well you're second in line. Or take the next one that is for sale.

Everone okay with that?

Well, its the same as the current offer. I dont know if it makes sense to not go higher at least a bit?
oops :oops: you are right, sorry. please make a step up to 850 USD, but what do you think is s/h to coinopwarehouse from this seller?

Shipping for this will be a lot. Its basically cross country. And the game itself is huge.

@All: What do you think of the following prices for nice fully working games. Prices are including shipping to CoinOpWarehouse.

Tempest           950
Q*Bert (mint)   1100
Kung Fu Master   600
Donkey Kong Jr   650
Popeye          600
Tron                   850
Double Dragon   400
Frogger           500
Question: can we make an offer or do we have to accept the prices as is?
In the first case, I'd like to make an offer of 400 for the Frogger and would be delighted to receive some pics to be able to check the "niceness" of the game.
Thanks!

Is anyone from the UK involved with this at all - the reason i ask is that clearly the container is going to go to somewhere on the European mainland and I would have no way of getting the cabinet as I don't own either a passport or a big enough car to transport a cab in...

I am sure someone from th eNetherlands will be able to pick up a cab or two for you and store it til there is someone going to the UK again? Also there is a "Martin the Delivery Man" equivalent for Continental Europe too. hatster on ukvac should know more regarding this someone.

Well, these prices are INCLUDING shipping to CoinOpWarehouse! Means you get the game for 300, which is actually an okay price imho.

That is, if the game is nice.

Frogger           500

This is a deal which is not going to happen if we dont buy all the games in a bulk deal.

Please keep in mind that these prices INCLUDE shipping to CoinOpWarehouse. Doesn'T exactly translate to cheap, but is also not expensive. Also these games are in really good condition and fully working. CoinOpWarehouse will not come up with many games that nice.

Short: I need to know if there is interest in every single game. And I need to know that soon. If no interest, oh well.

I will upload the pics I have so far tonight. Its the same from Asana though. Pics for Frogger, Double Dragon and Tron will come soon, but I expect these games to be in good condition anyway.

Let me know what you think!

(Edit: I just took these games off the G Docs For sale list, as there is too much back and forth with this deal at the moment.)

@love,

A have another few general questions:

- Is there already a shipping quote and a calculation of the shipping costs per cab?
- Is it possible to ship parts with the container? Parts that forum members buy between now and the container shipping, with delivery address coinopwarehouse.
- What if there are not enough cabs to fill a complete container? I suppose that the shipping costs will then be divided by the real amount of cabs. This could get very expensive per cab.
- what if the container shipping doesn't take place at all, f.i. if there are only a few cabs bought by us and shipping per container would be too expensive? People who bought and paid for a cab might want to withdraw in that case (it could after all in worst case more than double the initial price). Is this possible?

These questions may seem a bit critical, but i think that it is important to be as transparant as possible. There is a lot of money involved.

These questions may seem a bit critical, but i think that it is important to be as transparant as possible. There is a lot of money involved.

- Shipping for a 20' container (20-25 games) is $3850 to Berlin Germany, for a 40' container(40-50 games) is $4430 to Berlin Germany. It might be cheaper if the stuff is not going to Berlin (obviously its not!). Also I am not 100% sure about the target harbour yet. So we are talking $180 in case of 20' and about $100 in case of 40' container.
- Parts are no problem. Let me know when you want to ship and I ll provide the delivery address.
- If not enough cabs, splitting price between cabs going to be shipped is the way to handle it yes. I actually had a epiphany yesterday and will contact P-Man to join forces on a 40' container. Lets see what he thinks of that. (Edit: He is organizing a container too and I am pretty sure its a 20' one.)
- If you paid and its not going to happen, we can only sell the games in the US again. Obviuosly you would lose money in this case.

@ckong: Honestly, I do am worried about some of the factors you touched here too from time to time. But looking at the situation, I think that it will work out fine. Don't forget, we've got time. Up to 6 months. There are also other forums like ukvac and jamma+ and arcadezentrum you name it.

Also I for myself have 10 games ready to ship to europe already!

I do also talk to Steve Smith aka steve23 on dragonslair forum. Working with him is rather another container though, as shipping to Lloyds is pretty far. He's also not having time to discuss this stuff right now. But prices and games are good. More to come.

Ok, that is indeed a briliant idea! I think that would be beneficial for all parties involved in this seeing as the price will only go down with a bigger container.

Paypal is pretty easy. I use it all the time, a bit too often to be honest.
Create an account, fill in your credit card info or bank account.
You only need to login and fill in the sellers e-mailaddress to make the payment.

For large payments for goods, you cannot use gift obviously (although I got away with a lot of them). So make sure to add 5% to the amount asked by the seller.
But I would always mail the seller about that first.
That should do it I think.

Putting MAME in a PP is reasonably understandable (although I think with a little extra efforts PP hardware can run reliably) but putting a stupid VGA computer monitor in it......

I also hate that damn vector to raster converter, and then he is claiming you can't see the differences......can't really annoy me more than that by saying something insane like that.

But all the 60in1's going in classic cabs is the worst thing happening there......Indeed. save as many games as possible from this guy !

It did hurt me a bit too when he said that thing with the vector converter but...

thats no reason to post such kind of comment there! Thing is that no one buys a Frogger or PP over there and the market seems to scream for 19-1 board conversions. Well, what would YOU do if you dont get rid of those "classics" and they are ssitting in your warehouse forever?

> Indeed. save as many games as possible from this guy !

Well, as I wrote yesterday, this guy IS saving really rare games, some of them I would consider classics, some ultra rare, like the Anti Aircraft, SKy Diver or Gremlin Safari.

Furthermore I think it's interesting that no one is interested in any of the rare games there, like the Ramtek or Midway ones. THESE are much more valuable than a Frogger or PP if you ask me and they are not getting converted, they get fixed.

Sorry for the rant. The guy is okay and very nice to deal with. The youtube clip is blocked for now. :( :)  :pac:

Thats what he said:

Frogger, i think it has a board issue, $300, Dig Dug $400, Kangaroo $400. I'm going to convert these to 60-1's which locally sell for around $700 each. Home owners don't want 10 games in their house, new gameroom young people really go for these junk conversions.

Really depends on how many cabs we buy there, as it is pretty far. $200 at least.

There is a working Frogger for sale here: http://forums.arcade-museum.com/showthread.php?p=2151965#post2151965

Price is $400, but I can try to get it down to 350, no promise though.

Its from the same guy who is organizing the shipment to COW of a couple of games including your Kung Fu Master. So if you buy it from him, the shipping costs for both, Frogger and Kung Fu Master will go down for each, just because there are more games getting shipped but the overall price stays the same.

We are talking 150-200 range per game depending on how many we buy.

Using a converter like that is just being too lazy to get the original hardware running. Why not just sell it as defective ?

And I don't like people telling me things that I know for a fact to be not true and will say what I think about it.
Everyone can see the difference between a real vector monitor and a raster and acting as if there is no difference is simply being dishonest.

Ah, so "old blokes" can tell lies when they want to sell stuff, fo what reason, that they are old and sad ? Sounds like age discrimination to me.

I never lie when I sell something, I will always tell like it is, the good things but also the bad because I know it will only backfire on me if I don't.This makes me the lousy business man that I am, but at least I have a clean conscience.

Oh and if your really believe Skoda is inferior to Volswagen then why are the engine, the complete chassis and all the electronics 100% Volkswagen ?  The Octavia is a Golf with a different "cover". The SuperB is a Passat, the CityGo is an UP! etc....

Why ?

this a realistic quote! As i said to you, i have imported a US single jukebox from the 1950s last year to germany (similar in weight and measurement). and I have paid all in all 900 EUR for the complete s/h, because you paid many fees for customs / harbour and much more. cash for s/h is the lowest part of all, believe me!

Bump for a wow $750 Black Widow

http://forums.arcade-museum.com/showthread.php?t=239909

Its in California though so add 400-500 in shipping will ya


Sorry Thomas, but what do you think we want to pay for a Cab like this? 1250 USD shipped  only to cow + Minimum 500- 750 USD for sh to Europe... That was Minimum 1500 EUR in total!!! :-/

Well, I wanted to make sure people do see this post. Atarimania didnt see my post on a Foodfight for 850 in time. It was long gone when he came back to me.

How much would you pay for a Black Widow like this in Europe?


Can´t tell you a accurate price, but not 1500 EUR for sure!!!

Why ?

this a realistic quote! As i said to you, i have imported a US single jukebox from the 1950s last year to germany (similar in weight and measurement). and I have paid all in all 900 EUR for the complete s/h, because you paid many fees for customs / harbour and much more. cash for s/h is the lowest part of all, believe me!

Can you please give me some more info on what exactly cost so much and if it was insured and for which amount and so on? Need to know the details...

@Timepilot, why do you compare the shipping costs of one game (i.e., jukebox) only, with the shipping costs per cab shipped in a container together with 20+ other games.

Surely shipping a loaded container doesn´t cost 20 x $500 - $750 = $10.000 - $15.000  :shock:

So, don´t panic, shipping costs per cab will be much less.

@Love, do you have a shipping quote of a container shipped to Bremerhaven/Rotterdam (remember the poll, who won?  ;) ) and unloaded at that same place.  ;) We don´t want to make extra overland costs, do we?

By the way, I have a mint Black Widow and it´s a great vector game. Somebody should get this one.  ;D

@ckong: as i wrote, the shipping costs are not the problem. sh in a container are much cheaper than my sh, i know this. but all you guys forget the many extra-large fees you must pay, like you can seen in the lower parts of the invoice, in german: Einfuhrzollabfertigung (Import customs clearance), EUST (import taxes), Zoll (customs duty), Kaigebühren (port fees). and no matter what you declare as value, the customs has a table with a value for any specific item you imported. and this value takes as a basis for the calculation of the charge...
and that was why i say that you must calculate 500-750 USD per cab i think. (that was ~the half of my fees)

What is the difference between import taxes and custom duties?

Anyway, if a video game can be categorized untder taric code

8528410090, then import duties is nil, or
8534009000, nil

And for a jukebox import tax (or custom duties) is applicable.

But still, it would be great if Love shows us why he earns the € 50 fee per game  ;D , and lists in detail the total complementary costs (transport costs, duties, taxes, shipbroker fees, insurance premium, etc) per cab from COW up to loading it in my van in Rotterdam! And don´t forget VAT.

I guess, if this sums up to more than € 300 per cab, prices ex works COW will have to be pretty damn good to make it a success.

so, Timepilot, I just hope that you´re wrong!  :)

Post by: Love on July 20, 2012, 09:18:45 PM
I will work on that next week.

BTW: If Germany turns out to be a major PITA we will go to somewhere else for frekks sake. We are in the EU no? Rotterdam too correct? So why not bring those two together if German customs does suck big time?

Nice weekend everyone. We will find a way.

<Taking a deep breath> I really thought that in calculating shipping costs etc. the cost of the obvious taxes that need to be payed when importing such a large quantity of cabs were also already researched. I am afraid that going to a different country within the Eu is not going to solve anything since roughly the same rules aply to all members of the union. Rotterdam sure as hell is not going to be easier than the German customs. Oh well, ar least I was happy for a while about my newly bought Kungfu Master cab  ;D

Good morning gentleman.

I checked Toralfs Bill against the offer I have from Dachser and am not too worried that there are unexpected extra costs coming up. Not too worried means a bit worried though. I contacted Dachser already, but friday evening is not the best time to get an immediate response.

The two big cost factors on Toralfs bill are Einfuhrzollabfertigung (customs clearance) and Zoll/Einfuhrumsatzsteuer (customs duty). The first one seems to be included in the offer I got from Dachser (and is my biggest worry here), the second one is based on the real price/value of the jukebox Toralf bought and was to be expected that high. In our case we are looking at a price per cab of about $150-200 + $100 shipping, which should result in $60 of customs fees max (19%). That is if the liebe Zoll is not deciding themself what the games are worth as Toralf said they will most probably.

Shipping to my door, the last cost factor on Toralfs bill, is not going to be included in our bill at all.

Lets see what Dachser is coming up with next week. And lets call it the weekend of hope not of despair  :ghost: :) :pac:

Thomas

Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Tup on July 21, 2012, 03:31:55 PM
Well, I seriously doubt that they have a list of everything ever made so I think that they will charge the taxes over what has been paid for the cabs (plus shippingcost and insurance). Plus it seems a bit bogus to charge someone over for let's say a € 1000 cab just coz their list says so while in reality only € 100 has been paid for it. I remember once getting stopped at customs with a watch I got as a present and they looked the pricetag and charged me accordingly.
And Thomas, as always your optimism is very contagious  :D

Hey,

 perhaps interesting for you guys. Before Thomas came up with this awesome idea I managed to ship my first cab myself. I`ve simply e-payed a Atari Space Duel. The shipping costs me about 350USD. After 3-4 weeks the ship will arrive in the next days and I was contacted by a german company who cares about the delivery and harbor handling. So I was charged about some harbor fees. This fees was

LCL-Charge, for getting the stuff out of the container.

GSC (General Surcharge Compensation) charge after terror events 2001 for security

D/O-Fee (Delivery Order Fee ) transfer fee.

and finally Anti-Terror-Compliance for automatic electric investigation of all adresses regarding the shipment.

all this fee made 150€ incl. VAT.

Then the custom fees come on top. I don't know the costs here exactly. I proposed to name the shipment "defect video game device".

Then I asked for container shipment. The very friendly girl from this company told me that this is a complete different story and is going to much more less.

I guess the 150€ for the harbor handling is quite cheap. For other companies I`ve heard about 250-270 for shipping a cab similar item.

Ladies and Gentleman,

I got feedback from Dachser who will forward our container. I just copy + paste it here. For me the case is closed ;)


Dachser:
> The rates you received from our NYC office should apply
> without any further costs. However it can happen that
additional
> costs accrue if for example the following happens:
>
> - customs wants to see the freight/paperwork (customs
inspection)
> - the carrier does not accept the empty container at their
inland
> depot and we have to return the container back to the port.
> - demurrage/detention charges if we cannot return the container
> within the demurrage/detention free time we get from the
carrier.
>
> etc etc.


Me:
Can you please go into more detail regarding the risks you
mentioned? Like how can it be prevented, how much will it cost if
it happens etc?


Dachser:
> Unfortunately there is nothing what you/we can do against it.
> If customs wants to see your freight than there is nothing you
> can do and charges would be as per outlay.
> Same with the return of the empty container. If the depot is full
> and the carrier is telling us that they will not accept any
> further container than there is nothing we can do except finding
> another inland depot or we have to return the container to the
> port.

> Please note that this happens pretty rarely.

Whatever suits you best.

I did talk to TimePilot via PM and it looks pretty much I am still in contact with reality. Means customs didn't take any fantasy price from a list for his Jukebox. They just based it on the price paid and actual shipping costs.

I am confident that I am not totally off when I state that a shipping price of $150-250 will cover all costs., including VAT etc. Most probably that is.

Juhee!

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am first in line when these games (https://docs.google.com/folder/d/0B4yZPyBmGMxsVU1sXzAzbjFncTQ/edit) become available. All of them work. Most probably all of them will be for sale.

Please let me know if you are interested in any of them. (And note that the Pepper II is reserved for me :pac: :pac:)

If ya can't find me the Kung Fu Master, my second choice is ...Tuthankham  ;) Can you check its price for me  :)

I have never seen a dedicated Pooyan cabinet. Cool sideart!

By the way, I got a pic of my last night aquired Donkey Kong from Lloyd.
It needs a good cleaning, new control panel overlay, Nintendo joystick (I have a spare), T-molding and sidearts but then it's good to go.
And it is actually working as it is, which is a big plus.

Love, we you / we still use Asana?
I just got an e-mail about my status, so I thought let's ask.

Can you tell us how many cabinets we already have at COW for shipping?
Might be of inspiration for people to get (even) more cabinets :)


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Love on August 03, 2012, 12:18:19 PM
Asana is still used by me. Sorry for the status mail. Changed that.

We do have 12 games total at COW right now. Another load of 6 is going to there next week. Also I have a couple of other games lurking somewhere "nearby", so we are looking at 20+ games

If you wonder why the number is still that low, here is the reason: I do have a couple of my games shipped via P-Mans container.

Which is actually not just bad because this leaves more space for buying from COW directly as we need to buy half the games from Lloyd, or we will have to pay a $50 handling fee per game to him.

Right now we bought 5 games from COW directly.

But I am not onto this one anymore.
Might pick up another game, Mario Bros or DK3 if anything pops up for sale though.

I did however find a very nice original control panel overlay for the DK, $20 shipped and looks brand new.
Had it shipped to COW, already notified Lloyd.

Never knew Pooyan had such a weird construction on the top/back...

Pooyan and Amidar are very underrrated games IMHO. Remember those from 2600 and 8 bit Ataris mostly, both great conversions.
Burnin ' Rubber I remember as arcade game only and played it a lot, don't remember where though....
It's strange that this game got almost no home conversions.....

thomas, i didn't want to discourage people with my comment, it's just that you were asking why some of the great games you are posting are not being picked and i thought i'd share my thoughts on why. if i understand this deal correctly, the guy at COW will arrange the container, but only if we get half of the games from his place, right? how are we doing on that side of things?

i'd love to add a game (or two or three) to the container myself (and i most likely will), i just have to decide which one - preferably tapper or track & field (that's why i'm still hesitant about the hyper sports, especially since there are no repros available yet).

so once again, sorry if you got this wrong, i totally appreciate the efforts your putting into this and i honestly hope it will work out just the way it was planned!!!

Well, that's not quite correct. The guy will do the container IN ANY CASE, as I have a deal with him. He is just taking an additional $50/cab handling fee, if we ship more cabs from other sellers than him.

An old EM machine, nice.
Don't know about the price of that one ofcourse, but I have a feeling that (at least for the newer DMD pinball-machines) USA prices are pretty high for pinballs at the moment.
I was looking at some Dot-Matrix machines, but they seem more expensive there than over here in Europe.

Yeah, in general solid state pinballs are just as easy and "cheap" to find in "the old world" - but the old EM's seems to be easier to find in the US

Kind of what we are doing right now with the classic arcade machines, but then the other way around.
Lloyd from Coinopwarehouse said somewhere on his Facebook page comments that without European buyers he'd have no business.
And that in general Americans just don't care for this old arcade stuff.

True, it isn't factory mint. But for it's age it looks like one of the nicer cabinets I have seen.
If it's still the original paint of course.

Thats a normal thing no? Would you sell your Computer when the UI of the OS changes with the next update? And from the company point of view: how would you maintain a product that is rückwertskompatibel for ever feature wise.

I am no fanboy, don't use fb and actually do think fb is a shitty company, but was pretty excited about the timeline nevertheless, as I think it's a great feature seen rom the user/UI perspective.

I think this is the wrong place to discuss about it, but in my opinion, the timeline should be an option and you should go through your postings and select wether they are visible or not, instead of making the timeline a MUST with all postings active and you have to go through and select which shall  not be visible.....wrong way round...somehow...

Congrats my friend !!! You found your GRAIL !!!! :spaceace:

And you better fix that tape-drive because I want to hear the music !!! :)

Also interesting:
Originally, this game was not to have the band Journey in it. It would have a digital camera created by Ralph Baer, the creator of the Magnavox Odyssey home console systems that would take a picture of the player's face and put it on the character. After some people used unmentionable parts of their body as character heads during tests, this was dropped

I think you should rebuild it to this version so we can all have our own wacky "faces" on it  ;D ;D ;D

Ahhhhh, if only there were a "Level 42" cab.......well......I know where to start to convert it:

don´t joke with us.

But it is great that you know where all people involved live, and they all live more or less the same distance to Bremerhaven for most of them. Because then it is also more or less the same distance to Rotterdam for most of them.

The question is, which distance is more nearby?  ;) :)

Sure, Rotterdam is a lot closer for me.
But I am sure we can arrange something like a car-pool rent-a-van thing.

I am in Breda and already thought it would be handy if we teamed up so that we can share the cost of renting a van. Plus driving that long distance is also nicer if you can alternate between drivers! I don't have any problem with Bremerhaven. Hey, if anything it should be an interesting roadtrip  :D
And to be honest, I can see Thomas's take on this. It is after all his idea and his hard work.

Hi Tup,

Great idea! I already thought of that as well. Let's do this :)
Will be an interesting day for sure I think.
And I can understand Thomas too, about rather having the drop-off a bit closer by.

Okay, maybe I should have discussed this more publicly. Please accept my apologies for not doing that.

It just doesnt make much sense for me to ship a container to Rotterdam. After all I am german. Even a german citizen! I do have rights in Germany! Also I have the means to find out how to do the container import. Doing this in the Netherlands sounds like much more stress and complexity on any level. I mean there are even tasks like renting a place to unload the container at, that are not easy to handle for me in the Netherlands. Not to speak of finding out if I need to become a Dutch citizen to import stuff via Rotterdam andsoon,

Whatever, I hope you are okay with my decision.

- Love

Post by: Luigi on August 22, 2012, 12:23:21 PM
To be honest....I don't understand this discussion. He cares for all the stuff that has to be done to bring that container over here, he even helps searching the wanted cabs  so why should he be bothered having it all transported to Bremerhaven instead of Rotterdam???
I understand that you would like to have a short way to pick up but that's just the way it is.

btw....Rotterdam would be ~140km closer to my home than Bremerhaven but I don't complain.


But, in the same manner I don't understand why Love started that poll at all!?!  Has Rotterdam ever been an option? I guess not.


Thomas, please add my name to the list (behind Journey) :)

But, in the same manner I don't understand why Love started that poll at all!?!  Has Rotterdam ever been an option? I guess not.

Long: This whole thing started off as a kind of community project, where we do everything together basically. My idea was I would just provide the container option and do the bla with the US partner and anyone participating just gets their games themselves and help make it happen. As no one did like this idea, the whole concept changed step by step to a more well-known setup that people can and want to commit to. Now its "Love's container" (at least workload wise) and I also take a fee for my efforts etc.

Short: this is not a pre-planned project and it changed quite a lot over time. Thats why I did start a poll back then. Thats why I also realized AFTER starting the poll that it didn't make much sense to start it in the first place.

Even shorter: I am a learning-by-doing kinda guy and didnt think it through before I started the darn poll. Sorry for that.

Err, sorry joeks, I was pretty drunk yesterday. Now I am sober again (had a terrible night) and somehow have the feeling that a car is not the same size as an arcade machine?

I am not 100% sure what the difference in size is as I have seen both items in photographs only, but if it is MUCH bigger you will need to pay for TWO container slots instead of one. Again sorry I jumped the gun on this! P€4c3! :pac:

the thing with tron is this: because of the incredible among of (glowing) artwork used, you will have to invest AT LEAST 500 dollars for the reproduction art on top of the cabinets price, let alone install all that crap! :P and from what i can tell from the pics, you need to replace almost every single piece of art if you want to have the cab back in good shape again.

yes Ully, you´re right, but otherwise: how often you had the chance to get a tron cab??? and if you can find a cab like this (possible only in the us imho), you will pay over 1k USD for it. so i think the 500 USD is a good offer for a tron cab in this condition.
and for the sidearts: i think you can save these arts and stick it on the cab correctly. if not, then you have a nice original for a scan and can find a cheaper way to repro´d them here in europe. I think you will need only the cpo from us... marquee and inner artworks are good imo.

We will have someone pick up the games no? ;)

And payment can be sort out I am sure. Whether our pick up guy pays cash or the guy agrees to payment via CC or whatever - there will be a way. But. We will need to at least buy three cabs there or shipping will be a deal murderer/slasher/destroyer. :pac:

Do you really understand what's going on on the screen of robotron?
To me it's as clear as the battle scenes from transformers 2  ;D...
But I admire the skilled ones who can play it.
I'm more a berzerk guy maybe.
My advice: I recommend a lunar lander game every 5 robotron games to prevent epilepsy.

Compared to ohter Journey-cabs I was after this one was a bargain!! Will need some work on the Marquee and the CPO and maybe on the bezel...but if this would cost me $500 it still would be a bargain. :)

I can't get access to the grail list. Is it still in operation?
Either way I'm after Defender, DK or a Tempest cabaret in decent nick.

Oh, and while I'm at it: I'm hoping that my hair will grow back where I've gone bald as well.  :P

Grail list is not in use anymore. N one added anything anyway. Just let me know what you want and I note it in my personal project list.

Sorry for the hairy issue. Maybe spend your money on hair transplants instead of arcade games ;)

BTW: Do you like Stargate too?


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Arch on September 04, 2012, 11:03:50 AM
Oki, thanks. I'm primarily after a working Defender, but if that doesn't work out I'll go for either a DK or a Tempest cabaret.
I like Stargate, which is why I have one in my game room right now. :P It misses its brother though, so a nice Defender would be great!

I don't think I've ever seen a successful hair transplant. Look at Rooney. Looks weird!  :shock: No, arcades it its!

Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Love on September 17, 2012, 10:40:33 AM
Ladies and sirs, the container is full. No more games will make it into this one!


Right now I am preparing to huge roadtrips with my partners in the US, to move most of the games to COW. The first delivery should hit COW this week, next week latest and is including Gyruss, Nibbler, Stargate, Tempest, Asteroids, Asteroids Deluxe, Kung Fu Master and some more. The second delivery will be due first week October and include stuff like Solar Quest, Red Baron, Time Pilot, DK 3, 2 guest cabs (Tut + DK) and much more.

There are some other games to pick up, like the Journey and Kangaroo, Dig Dug and Omega Race, but to move those to COW will be pretty much straight forward.

So here is what I need from all stakeholders:

1 --- Let me know in case you don't see your game in the list in post #1.
2 --- Anyone who had a package (with parts or whatever) shipped to COW please come back to me via PM. I need the senders address too.
3 --- Anyone prepare for paying container shipping in the next couple of weeks.

I am pretty busy to get all the games together right now. Next step is preparing everything for the container. And if you think something like "why is all this not done yet?" Well, I didnt expect to reach 48 so soon and suddenly. I am still IN SHOCK!

Any questions or advice, ask! :pac::pac:

A question: until what date is it possible to have parcels with parts delivered at COW, so that they can hike along?


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: joeks on September 17, 2012, 09:44:00 PM
About parcels, if we have them put in the container, does this help decrease the chance of high import charges like with regular packages from the US?
I know it saves on shipping for sure.

The container IS full. Doesn't mean there isnt some flexibility in the line up still. 48 for example is a hypothetical figure, the real one will depend on actual games footprint and form factor. So, to make sure all of you guys games are going in in any case, there are some crumple zone games that CAN go in, but don't NEED to go in in any case. This way another wow game for someone who doesnt have one on the container already will most probaly fit. For everyone else the container is full, yes. :)

From a PM reply this morning:


there is still plenty of time to send stuff to COW, at least another 4 weeks. Best is to just ask me before ordering. Also I will eveyone let know when its time to stop.

So, go ahead, order stuff, but ask me before you order things that are not arcade related due to customs duty. And keep me updtaed.

Thomas,

What is going on behind the curtains? :) Would be great to know how you are handling things at the moment over there. After all, for a lot of us this is pretty cool and exiting. I can't wait to collect my cab. OK, it is not a Juno First, but it is actually better in my book.

Why? Is this not meant to be loaded like this? ;)

Be careful, it can be dangerous to overload a container ;)

Next week and the week after I am on vacation.

Which is good as I will have the time to get the container ready for shipping.

Thats all for now  :pac: :pac: :pac:

Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Love on October 12, 2012, 09:48:24 PM
Well, if I did buy them (which I would never admit to) I might make them available to others at some point so they can use their lifetime for other stuff like rafting or bungee jumping or going for GamePlan cabs.

And yes the container is full but I am flexible with MY cabs on it. Take some off, put some on, ladeeda.

Gents,

Last but not least, I added 4 Nintendo games to the for sale post (http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=3726.msg52670#msg52670) of this thread. They are completely restored, 100% working and in collectors condition. Prices do include shipping to COW and those are the last cabs that make it into the container.

Any interest let me know.

The Donkey Kong sparked my interest. But I live so far away from Bremerhaven, I would need to arrange shipping from there to my home. How will the individual cabinets be packed? Would it be packed well enough (and on a pallet) for a shipping company to pick it up and bring it to me unharmed?
What kind of time frame would I have in Bremerhaven? Would I need to pick up the cabinet on a specific date, or could I tell the shipping company a number of dates to choose from?
I haven't been following this thread closely. When is the estimated arrival date for the container?

I am confused. Does this mean that there is still space for 1 or more cabs in the container ? So in theory if I buy a cab now I can still include it in this (first) container ?

Cab would have to be moved from Texas to COW though...

The game will not be palletized in the container. That would just take too much space. I can store it for you in my storage in Berlin until you have someone come pick it up. I also offer to strap the game to a pallet and so on. This will cost a reasonable fee though (lets say €50 including pallet, straps and stuff).

Nope, no more cabs make it into this container. The games that are for sale are part of the 50 games already shipping on it.

24-10-2012 update.

First off: Most of your games are at CoinOpWarehouse now (list in first post updated).

On another news: I already agreed with Lloyd on doing another container after this one, which means that I can store my own games at COW til I have enough to ship them in a second container straight to my home. This in turn means that I can take some of my games off the first container to concentrate on your stuff. Which means?


Space for 2 or 3 more games if anyone is interested!

Anyways, lets ship this container asap. I will soon come back to each and every stageholder via PM/email regarding details and payment for shipping. If you didnt hear back from me by the end of the week, please let me know.

:)

@Love I haven't been lurking for a particular one. And not for the money they ask on eBay atm.
But maybe if Lloyd has/gets one. Or someone pretty local to COW with a nice price.

About the monitors, I have no idea if they are hard to come by really.
But I assume harder to find than normal 19" Nintendo ones.
I see the regular stand-up cabinet monitors for sale pretty often on Klov.

But better stop buying.
If I am honest to myself, I don't have the funds really :)
So I'd better forget about it and look forward to the cabinets in de container.

What will be the total overhead ?


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: joeks on October 24, 2012, 10:22:29 PM
Don't know exactly. 50 euro for Thomas. Plus approx 240 dollar for tax, shipping and customs like Thomas mentions in the first post.
Cabs look good, have you seen them on COW's Facebook page?
Don't know if it's sold yet btw.

Maybe the twin counts for two cabinets. Don't know.

Go for the Daytona Twin if ya like. Shipping will be like 2 uprights though.

@Ully: Please approach Lloyd directly regarding stuff you are interested in.


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse

Yeah I will be up for it depending on what the total cost will be. I have no idea how it all works hehe

Will read back the opening thread, but just letting you know now that I might want the other one if the price is right ;)

edit : Ok I've read the rules. So it will be approx. 500 dolar for a single unit if I read correctly, including shipping? Also I really would want the header which would be a nice addition to our Arcade. Well let me know the details please ;)

I cannot guarantee that they will fit on this one, but suggest to put them on the next one (Q1 next year) in worst case scenario.

Well, there isn't enough space for the Daytonas on this container anymore (47 of 48 game slots spoken for already). I can offer to put them on the next container though. For shipping to europe, they would be something like $460 per game including customs and everything ( two times a standard upright). That would be the actual shipping costs. Let me know if you wanna move forward on these terms.

the thing is that i will be sharing a bus with a friend to pick up the games and since there's still space on the bus, i might as well add another cab (or two) to the container. i'm not sure whether i'll be taking part in the next container, so it's either now or never :P

So it would be $650 for the Daytona USA 2 twin + $460 customs etc = $1090 total for the twin.
That's $545 = 420 euro per single unit.
Not a bad price I think. What do you think Psykick?

I know I said  in an earlier post that they are 2 shipping slots instead of one. Didnt realize they are 4 slots in the real reality. Actual costs are $650 + $460 + $460 = $1550 = €1200 = €600 per single unit.

If you serious I would like to offer a shipping discount to make it €500 per single unit. Just to make you happy. And sorry for giving incorrect info!

Edit: You realize that they would go on the next container, not this one, as there is not enough space left to make the Daytonas fit.

Correct.

Well guysthe price is definitely right, but just a few more questions then :

- When will the next container procedure start?

- Do I need to pay now, or can you put it on hold untill the end of november as I have some other priorities right now, also because it'll take awhile from now on before it even gets shipped I reckon ;)

- What is the condition of the cabs? Like decals, wear and tear?

If it all works out in my favor I'll definitely get more cabs to make the next container worthwile for me and I have some time to save some more cash ;)

Thnx!  :spaceace:

Well to be clear, all of MY games are on the 2nd container. Also I will have it shipped straight to my house in Berlin. This translates to (A) maybe 10 to 15 free slots on the 2nd container and (B) pick up of games will be in Berlin, Germany.

This first container is the one to go for. The next one is much less of a community project.



Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Superully on October 30, 2012, 02:01:01 PM
well, berlin is a little bit closer to my place than bremerhaven, so the second container would be my prefered choice - but not only because of the location, but also because i get the chance to put more games on there AND the timing next year is so much better than this year! the question is: is there a change in the additional fees if i put all my games (and the ones from austria-alex) on the second one or do they stay the same - or are they even cheaper? ;)

you mean for you, or for the others? It surely won't be cheaper for the others because it might mean that container nr. 1 is not completely filled any longer, which translate in one of the following options:

- shipping for container nr. 1 will be later because obviously it has to be fully loaded to cover the previous stated shipping costs per game. Is that something that people want, especially as it seems that container 1 is almost ready for shipment (see first page).

- container 1 will be shipped not fully loaded and people who are participating will have to pay more shipping costs per machine to cover the costs for Love!

- Love will pay for the uncovered shipping costs because of the not fully loaded container. (duh)

I don't know what Love and others think about this, but because Berlin is 'just a little bit' closer for you, it would be a good sense of community solidarity if you ........  :)

After all, your other cabs, still to buy as I understand, could come along with container 2.  :)



Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Love on October 30, 2012, 04:10:27 PM
@ALL: Just to make sure: Shipping on the 2nd container will cost more than on the first one!  :pac: :pac:

@ckong: Yeah, Ido agree with your point of view. Though, to be fair I should note that I came up with the idea of Ully shipping his stuff in the next one, as a couple of people wanted to buy more stuff than would fit on the first container (Daytonas, 2x Ully etc). Obviously I was just thinking aloud (bad idea). Again.

Well if everything basically stays as is, we should go on with the shipment procedure as planned. And yes, if someone has additional cabs that do not fit on container #1 anymore, lets talk about putting them on #2. I hope everyone agrees.

don't get me wrong, guys, i just wanted to move my games to container #2 because thomas suggested doing so and because there was interest expressed by some other guys (and myself) to buy some additional games. it was never my intention to make container #1 more expensive for you guys - that would be insane! with that being said: if i moved my two games (and the two from austria-alex) off container #1, wouldn't that make enough space for the twin racer and everything's fine again?

How do we go about which cab belongs to whom when we pic it up at the container drop-off btw?
Just a matter of trust, or?

For instance, there are two DK and two DK JR amongst them.
Are the wrapped cabinets labeled with our names, or can that be arranged?

Would be a deception if I drove 500+ km just to get there and find one or more of my cabinets switched or gone :)

oh by the way... i guess there are some people from my part of germany (or benelux) who will pick up their cabs.
if you guys are interested... we could try to get the cabs here in one truck for example. just an idea. i don´t know if it is possible to arrange.
if you are interested i could ask for a truck.

That is why I asked Thomas to leave the gamename on page one of my game (Gyruss) linked to the photo's of the cab. He did that for a while, but I just noticed that the game name is no link anymore. Fortuantely I do have photo's of the cab stored on my PC, so that I can admire the cab every once and a while, until I see the real deal of course.  :D

did that, too. the dk jr. is quite easy to identify. and the condition of my mario bros should be very good so we can compare them when they arrive.
still i would feel more comfortable if they have a name on each cab.

Its just a bit cumbersome to link to all the pics again after pasting a re-arranged list. I will put up the links again soonish anyway.

I also checked back and most of the doubles and triples do look different enough to know which one belongs to who. But yeah, go ahead and print out the pics you have. I do the same.

And I also will try to get a pick of all the cabs from COW before shipping, mark them with owners name and additional metadata and have COW put stickers on them.

Again, I do have pics and the games DONT look all the same! So no worry.

That would be great indeed, seeing there are 3 Kungfu Masters in this shipment. Since mine was a bit more expensive than the others, I too get a bit nervous about getting there only to find out I am stuck with one of the fixer-uppers. So please, Thomas, mark mine too   :shock:

I know everybody is waiting for their cabs and I know I am being a bit selfish here when I say that I am hoping the container will be making it only until the last half of Januari  :evil: :evil: but it will be a long time before I'll have a new chance for a roadtrip of this magnitude.

Gents, I just contacted Dachser (container shipper). Lets see what they come up with.

Meanwhile I will start a poll on the forum to see who will prefer the container to arrive this year, and who is rather hoping for it to arrive in january. I for myself would go for january right away, but Lloyd is not the kind of person who likes to have 50+ games to stay in his warehouse that could get shipped right away (so to speak).

Ask for pictures of the games in the warehouse.

And I will put up the links to the games again, so everyonecan download them for future reference.

Right now is not clear if there are more slots on this (first) cntainer or not. Waiting for feedback of two of the current stakeholders on if they want to ship their stuff on this or the next container.

For the DK, the one that was for sale is sold. But I might get another one if you are interested. LMK.

I suppose that all participants got a message from Love mentioning the all-inclusive shipping costs per upright cabinet. And because I think that it is a good idea to have this publically available for future reference >>>>

Quote from: Love

............

A single shipping slot in the container is €180 per standard upright. All costs are included in this price (handling, customs etc). I of course cannot guarantee that there won't apply any additional costs and in case there are you will need to take care of them, but I dont expect there to be any.

The container will arrive in Bremerhaven most probably. Machines are not strapped to pallets but will be professionally wrapped and stuff. There is no storage going to be provided by me, therefore you need to pick up your games at the delivery place, date and time or make sure someone is doing that for you.

...........


Not bad at all, and as this equals about US$ 230, the maximum of US$ 240 -250 (including VAT) that Love mentioned earlier. Chapeau.  :)

By the way, Love, please inform us as soon as possible about the collection date, some of us will have to make arrangements at their work, if it is during a weekday.

Oh, and one question about the calculation, I take it that it is including the VAT. How did you calculate this in the overall same price per game, because the VAT of course depends on the value per machine? Or did you just divide the VAT over all games equally, which is fine by me?

In fact, to save shipping costs and make all sure all the cabs will fit in the container, we decided to compact them a bit before loading...

Aside of trashing the cabs, everything is on track for a January shipment. I did ask for pigs and will follow up tomorrow.

For mixing up the games, don't worry, there are differences you can see in the pics. Won't be a problem to tell which one belongs to whom.

Any more questions, keep them comin  :ghost:  :pac: :pac: :)

Still got no pigs, only COWs hoho. Alright *switch boring joke mode off* container is scheduled for arrival in second January half. Guys who didn't pay for container shipping yet, please do.

Its gonna HAPPEN!

Post by: Love on December 01, 2012, 07:51:25 AM
I suppose that all participants got a message from Love mentioning the all-inclusive shipping costs per upright cabinet. And because I think that it is a good idea to have this publically available for future reference >>>>

Quote from: Love

............

A single shipping slot in the container is €180 per standard upright. All costs are included in this price (handling, customs etc). I of course cannot guarantee that there won't apply any additional costs and in case there are you will need to take care of them, but I dont expect there to be any.

The container will arrive in Bremerhaven most probably. Machines are not strapped to pallets but will be professionally wrapped and stuff. There is no storage going to be provided by me, therefore you need to pick up your games at the delivery place, date and time or make sure someone is doing that for you.

...........


Not bad at all, and as this equals about US$ 230, the maximum of US$ 240 -250 (including VAT) that Love mentioned earlier. Chapeau.  :)

By the way, Love, please inform us as soon as possible about the collection date, some of us will have to make arrangements at their work, if it is during a weekday.

Oh, and one question about the calculation, I take it that it is including the VAT. How did you calculate this in the overall same price per game, because the VAT of course depends on the value per machine? Or did you just divide the VAT over all games equally, which is fine by me?

I just pay VAT for the whole container. Price is rather based on a bill for the whole thing than the real value of any of the cabs. VAT is paid on a per slot basis and, as I mentioned right at the start of this project, your cabs are NOT insured for what they are really worth. If one of you wants that kind of security for his cabs, shipping will cost him a lot more.

Yeah I noticed that too. I thought it might be a wrong pic or something. On the other hand, if I remember correctly there are a few jukes on our container too? Oh well, that gives me a bigger chance to be there when it arrives.

Just was talking to Currycowboy here on the forum regarding this very same question. First off, everything bought in the US from now on, will go on the second container. The first one is full. The second container is going straight to my storage in Berlin where I can store games for you for a while. I am also pretty sure that me or someone else is going tp the UK next year again.

Sirs, there is a slight change in plans regarding shipment date of container #1. I did just book a flight to the US and will visit CoinOpWarehouse prior to the container being loaded. I will be there around 10th of January, so shipping date will be something around 14th (still needs to be confirmed).

I want to stress that there is no need to go there and look at the games, but I figured that I am on vacation anyway and would like to visit some other folks there, so why not drop by at COW too and finalize/prepare the hot stuff for the journey.

I hope thats basically good news for everyone. Sorry for the extra delay.

Didn't someone ask for a "red tent"? COW just received one (as can be seen on the pictures in FB) :)

(http://sphotos-a.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/206190_10151335326632375_136361858_n.jpg)



Things have relaxed here....the time slot for maintenance has been reduced to three weeks...only urgent and necessary things can be made....so far I'm out of the maintenance "show" in February and hopefully can make it to Bremerhaven :spaceace:

Yep, secured the Red Tent for you guys last night. Lloyd: "Working one with gun on one side came in, $600." I was hoping to get some more pics but after Luigis spoiler figured that I wont get any anyways.

The game works. "It has vs golf on one side and vs hogans alley with a gun on the other"

First €500 takes it. Lmk.

Exactly!

Wait a moment, that makes no sense! Maybe like this: Lloyd is never sending any extra pics, Luigu "spoiled" the Red Tents existence already, oh well lets just stop waiting for pics and tell everyone.

Was just kidding and obviously forgot the smily. Here you go: ;)

I think the cabaret version of Tron takes away its most important asset: beautyful cabinet with cool lighting.

Why doesn't anybody mention the Wizard of Wor that's been on KLOV for just $350 ??

If I hadn't put myself on a curfew I would be all over it and amazingly no-one in the US seems interested......

Ladies and gentleman, I have some bad and some good news. Good news first - I finally got a shipping date. Bad news: its much later than I was told before.

Other good news is, that I decided to rent some self storage near Bremerhaven. That way pick up date is much more flexible and there is also more time to sort out stuff etc.

The Shipment is booked to sail on the MOL Endownment V LB739E
Cut-off: Feb. 7th, 2013
ETS NY: Feb. 10th, 2013
ETA Bremerhaven: Feb. 19th, 2013

Ladies and gentleman, I have some bad and some good news. Good news first - I finally got a shipping date. Bad news: its much later than I was told before.

Other good news is, that I decided to rent some self storage near Bremerhaven. That way pick up date is much more flexible and there is also more time to sort out stuff etc.

The Shipment is booked to sail on the MOL Endownment V LB739E
Cut-off: Feb. 7th, 2013
ETS NY: Feb. 10th, 2013
ETA Bremerhaven: Feb. 19th, 2013

 :pac:

here are a pic from the MOL Endownment:

Unfortunately not. There are strikes in the US harbours delaying everything. Seriously. Strikes in the US!

I just had a call with Dachser Germany and am working with them to nail the final shipping date. As of now, the container is supposed to be loaded this week friday. I will know exactly tomorrow most probably.

Keep you posted.

Unions are actually quite powerful in the US. I too was surprised about that as I always thought it was "each for himself" over there but in certain sectors that is definitely not the case.

True. Now I think about it there was this huge screen writers strike some years ago. Anyways, I am directlzy working with Dachser Germany now, which is going much smoother. The guy I am talking to lives just around the corner of my place. Funny!

Wow pretty interesting. For some reason I'd expected:

-The French to be on top
-The US to be a lot lower on the list
-surely didn't expect South Korea to be #6 ! Thought they'd be more like the Japanese.....

It anchored in Antwerp at the moment but it should pass Vlissingen on it's way to Bremershaven today. Our office is a stones throw away from the sea (Westerschelde channel to be correct).
Will keep tracking the ship online and via various webcams and when it's passing by I might hop on my bike to see it in real life! :)

Thomas, please keep us informed what happens :)

I once read that big container ships with certain stock, like oil, or coffee wait outside harbours until the price of f.i. coffee has risen 0,01% in the market so they can make more profit. Maybe this is what is happening

Not with container ships !!!! The cargo on the containers is usually way too much varied for things like this. Believe me, if there is something those ship operators do not want is extra time at sea or burning fuel without reason.

What you mention does happen A LOT though with OIL vessels. When I returned from the Arcadebarn (R.I.P.) meeting a couple of years ago, flying back from Essex with a turbo-prop plane, and thus not flying any higher than 7 km. I was BAFFLED by the amount of orange (=dangerous cargo) ships scattered all over the North Sea, which indeed are often just waiting there for prices to rise. This was also documented for TV a long time ago.

We are all at the mercy of those evil traders !




Oh guys, maybe the ship had to wait for a pilot to come aboard. Ships this size must have a local "pilot" on board who knows the local waters of that area/port really well and takes charge of the ship for entering the harbors.

Something like this (great time-lapse video of a Rotterdam pilotage) => http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=C79ux3Qik5k

Also, sometimes simply have to wait to enter harbors, much like airplanes at airfields....

Post by: Level42 on March 05, 2013, 07:15:26 PM
....after all, it's not really the only ship on the North sea at the moment.......

yes each and every "arrow" is one vessel.....

And remember that military vessels usually do not show their positions AND not all commercial vessels have the GPS system either.....and even so, the North-Sea is a JUNGLE !!! Probably the busiest waters in the world....

Talking about old camera's, i remember when i was young, my dad had a camera which had a flash that was only working one time per lamp:

(http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-_IRXTk_jHQU/T8ORAgGjRaI/AAAAAAAAA-c/GaGTRMI_sjw/s1600/Flash+8.jpg)

Post by: Luigi on March 14, 2013, 12:34:37 PM
Yes, the flash-cubes. I remember them very well. They turned automatically 90° once the flash was used but you had to count how many of the lamps were left ;)

Yeah, we had the similar flash on our polaroid, something like this.

Post by: Level42 on March 15, 2013, 01:54:27 PM
Tsss, you guys are so young Bela & Etienne, those were very modern flashers.

My dad used to have this:

(http://nl.dreamstime.com/oude-camera-met-flits-thumb7187026.jpg)

One bulb per flash.....man what a polution. Then again, you only had 36 pictures on one role and it cost pretty much money to have them developed and printed. It also used to take like a week or so I remember.

So, you were pretty careful to take "meaningful" pictures not like today where we can snap away 100's of pictures without thinking about it....

The 1 week waiting for the pictures were a curse and a blessing. On one hand there was the exitment of re-living f.i. a holiday you already had almost forgotten, on the other you it took WAY too long ......and on one occasion we received a nice series of cats pictures instead of our holiday pictures and they never surfaced !!!

Worse though is a dad who likes to clean up all the time. Since he is a long time pensioner he thought it was smart to scan in all the old pictures and dia's (remember those ?) and then store them on a hard-disk. Of course, in his never ending cleaning-up mind-set he actually threw away all the originals !!!!!!!!!!

Now that wouldn't be the end if the files had been safe, but when he was still a Windows user he lost the files !!!!!  (not sure if Windows was to blame, or it was one of his "clean the PC and re-install everything" actions which he seemed to do about every 2 weeks......

He only told me that after I asked him about them recently and I don't think I managed to hide my total amazement and especially anger.........

My dad's a fine man and I am very happy to still have him around at his age and in pretty good condition but like everyone he has his faults, this is one of them. I'm pretty certain that that it is that I have hard times throwing away stuff, always having that "it migth be useful later" feeling. I'm not a hoarder but I do show slight signs of it  ;D ;D ;D


Oh, uhmmmm, what was this thread about again ? SORRY !  ;D ;D ;D

Yup.....that never stops to amaze me too !!! Once on an interview Mark explained it was like having sex and watching your favorite football team at the same time....pretty hard to share the attention on both  ;D ;D ;D
(Guess that's why he often has his eyes closed, to really focus on both....

Oh and Center parcs :) Enjoy ! :) We were there a couple of weeks ago (different one). If you're lucky there will be some arcade machines. Our's (Kempervennen) had 3 (!) pinball machines, some racers, Let's go Jungle (like that !) and some more nice machines for today's standards...not too bad really for 2013...

Love, I love you!  :lol:  :spaceace:

And because Bremerhaven is only about 325 km´s from my place, I just rented this: https://www.boedelbak.nl/typen-en-prijzen/aanhangwagen-typeCH   ;D

it´s cheap, it is easy, it has pretty late return hours (10 PM, so only one day rental) and both cabs will fit in side by side  ;)

Oh man, I am so excited, another great weekend coming up.  :D :D :D

It is odd to think that all this started more then 8 months ago, by Love of course. It got a lot of us very excited, and we still are. Strange to think that this deal is almost over and completed.

If we would vote for a DLF member of the year 2012/2013, then Thomas would be on top of my list.  :spaceace:

Yeah, it took a while here and there, but I was learning a lot and also met people all over the world in the process. And last but not least, also got me "some" cabs while being at it.  :pac:

Well, I did aim for this container route to be a persistent institution from the very beginning. Means that there going to be containers shipped as long as there is demand to move stuff from the US to Europe.

Thanks everyone!

I will also be bringing the Joust CPO's for the guys who ordered:

@Love: well, will be a joy to hand it to you  ;D
@Capt.Kirk/Luigi I assume you can pick up with your machines so I will leave yours @Love OK ?
@Speleo_de, AFAIK you don't have any cabs in the container right ? I guess it's best I'll keep yours for a bit...or I can hand it to any of the German guys if you should meet one of them soon or I can keep it for a bit later this year of course....

OK, I will bring it next weekend and Capt.Kirk can take it with his/Luigi's when they pick up their cabs, I'm sure that Luigi wants to go on that -journey- to pick up the cabs ASAP ;)

Reason is transport is easier by car ;) ;)

Hello,

Whilst I was not involved in this container purchase or even in buying any games, I have organised containers from the USA in the past.

So, this goes out to Thomas!

Many thanks for making a container available with cool games for us Euro guys in 2013. It is a lot of hard work and I just wanted to say WELL DONE!  :spaceace:

About "double" games, for instance, the two Donkey Kong Junior cabinets.
How can we know that everyone takes their "own" cabinet? Just good trust, or are they marked in some way?
I mean, some cabs are in awesome condition, some others are projects or don't work etc.

I wouldn't like it if someone switched my DK JR and DK with another one, which might be in a lesser condition or whatever. Or the other way around ofcourse.

I have pics of the cabs I bought but don't know if everybody is as punctual about this as I am :)
How do you guys feel about this?

about my pick up: the weather on saturday in my area is very poor with a lot of snow, so i pick up the cabs on saturday morning and will drive shortly back @ home, distance is ~800km total. the trailer i have rent only for saturday, so i must be give back until 18 clock.

Wow, that is pretty relaxed indeed. Joeks is leaving tomorrow at 4AM to pick me up and then via one stop-over to pick up a cab to Bremen. Then on our way home, make two stop-overs to drop of cabs before I'm home after which Joeks has another hour of driving alone. Pffff, jealous of you guys already  :shock:

Hi,

Just looked out of the window, lots of snow in Bremen. I'll not able to come today, so have lots fun today. :)

@lvl42 I've given your cpo to Thomas

The storage location is very professional. There is everything for relaxed pickup.

Post by: Tyrem on March 30, 2013, 02:27:48 PM
guys... we were soooooo lucky that all the cabs are in the truck. one cm less space and we would not have made it due to the fact that the kung fu masters and the star treck are bigger cabs than expected.

anyway... we are on our way to trier now. we expect to be there shortly after 7. so if you wanna pick up tonight, luigi and kirk... feel free to jump into my shop at half past 7. :)

and by the way: kudos to thomas! what a freckin amazing thing you did with this container! and greeting to all the people we met today. you guys rock!

We were back home at 4.45 PM. As the others already said, big thanks to Thomas for making this possible. I´m a happy man because I now have a very nice Gyruss in my shed.

Photo´s will follow soon.

....and a Dr. Mario !! ....... ;D

Just got home. I am pretty much "travelled up" but WTF, it was a fun day. Good meeting some new guys and some familiar guys !

I think I made some pretty awesome video shots, even though my battery was down at the end...(forgot to charge it @CKONG's)

Thanks CKONG for inviting us, and the great sleeping spot and breakfast......

Of course, it was totally pointless for Pieter and me to come'along (except for keeping you awake, which we partly failed only for a short while ;)) but these are the fun things in life to do, crazy things....

I'll upload the video ASAP...

It was indeed pretty pointless for us to come along, but i had a great time. Thanks for the hospitality Erik & Marjan!  :D

Never seen that many awesome cabs together, what a sight!

Big up to Love for making this happen and congratulations to the new owners!!

hopefully, all my cabs will be on the second container and then i can make up for what i missed now. nevertheless, congratulations to all you guys for your new cabs and thx to thomas for making something possible which a lot of people were afraif might not work out in the end - me included! you did it, man!!! :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace:

Post by: Luigi on March 31, 2013, 01:25:11 PM
Good morning everybody and Happy Easter!! :)

Big thanks go to two people:

at first to Thomas for making this possible! Thanks mate, I hope we will meet again in the future. :) :)

(Yes, Ully. I planned to get one over here to my 50th birthday but I doubted that it could really happen...and now it happened 6 years earlier  ;D
I know the game sucks but the cab is soooo beautiful and it's a Journey ;) )

And second to Stefan (and his very nice team) who loaded the two cabs for Neustadt into their van so we could get them in Trier!! Was a great pleasure to meet you guys and have a beer with you :)


So Dirk and I went to pick up our two cabs in Trier on saturday evening. Dirk picked me up at my home at 17:30.
(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/IMG_7958_klein.jpg)

In Trier we saw the famous Porta Nigra....hundred thousands of years old  ;D

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/IMG_7959_klein.jpg)

Stefan's shop was just at the corner and when we drove round it we saw the guys just unloading the first cabs.....damn....a little too early but they had already seen us  ;D  ;)

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/IMG_7962_klein.jpg)

Dirk's Star Trek had already been unloaded and was standing there....all alone...waiting in the dark for the things to come...

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/IMG_7963_klein.jpg)

a short glance to what's left in the van...

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/IMG_7964_klein.jpg)

Tyrem's Mario bros...indeed a nice and clean cab

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/IMG_7965_klein.jpg)


and here it is: MY GRAIIIIIIILLLLLLLL!!!!!  :spaceace:

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/IMG_7966_klein.jpg)

ouch....I'm very glad that I ordered the complete artworkset including printed marquee and bezel

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/IMG_7967_klein.jpg)


We loaded our cabs into Dirk's van and had a nice time and a beer with the guys inside Tyrem's shop. I also bought Golden Eye for my son's x360 and an awesome Space Invaders mug, Dirk bought two shaped mario puzzles and a NDS-game....IIRC. Stefan showed us his cabs in the basement.
We left a few minutes to 9. Unfortunately I completely forgot to take a picture from the two babies inside the van. Doesn't make sense to do it now....the trip (and chance) is over...next time... ;)


One last thing: I also bought a complete manual for the Journey-Cab and had it sent to COW. I asked if they could put it inside my Journey...they agreed. So I opened the cab yesterday and found a big box. Inside was a black coindoor. I couldn't see a manufacturer logo. But no manual at all. I have left the box with the coindoor at Tyrem's shop. Maybe one of the belgian or dutch guys is missing a coindoor and Bruno/Chris can take it to Belgium with their cabs. For details on the coindoor and the package please contact Tyrem.

If someone finds an envelope with a Journey-manual inside....it's mine! :)



Holy shit...I should consider a surgery to correct my nose :o

Well, if you had mentioned yesterday that you wanted them all gone, I would have loved to take that versus Nintendo (project) off your hands :)

By the way,
I unloaded the cabs but haven't had time to inspect and open them up yet.
So I hope there are some parcels in there which seem missing so far.

Post by: Level42 on March 31, 2013, 06:24:50 PM
Wow did you guys rent such a large bus just for the two cabs ?

It's better you did not see the unloading of the Star Trek........we saw the loading....... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Pretty amazing effort as we thought it was never going to fit in there.....

Congrats on getting your grail Mr.Luigi ! And Star Trek is a very cool rare game to have in the collection, although I find the cabinet ugly as hell....sorry now I'm stinging in the end  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

agreed, the captain's chair model is much nicer, but no matter what, star trek is a nice game and the original enterprise wasn't a beauty itself ;)

Post by: Level42 on March 31, 2013, 06:36:59 PM
True. And it's a color vector game by Sega....coolness guaranteed.

Wonder what monitor is in there.......should be a G08 IIRC.

It´s their car. ;)
And we made sure that the cab would be safe while loading, didn´t we? :) It was just a funny thing that they locked me away in the truck. And my way out was cool. :D

Ah, so you really got it? You told me yesterday that you have a manual for me.....and gave me a cardboard roll with Dirk's Joust CPO inside. So I thought you were wrong. I should have asked once more for it ;)

Not necessary to waste money for shipping it to me. Maybe we meet again in the near future :)


@Thomas: yes, I think it's a 3-slot-coindoor. Not sure if it's for three players but it's a large one and I'm sure it has three coin-slots. I have no idea why they have put it into my Journey  ???

Guys, I have someone's DK bezel here. It was smuggled in the truck.
If it's not from any of you, I suggest it goes to Robinholland for his new Donkey Kong cabinet.
Of which I am totally jealous. My DK particle disaster cabinet looks like shit compared to yours :)

Also have Amidar schematics in a brown envelop.
I think it's for Thwocker since he had the Amidar cabinet.
I can send it by post, no problem.

If someone finds my
- Nintendo buttons (5 pieces)
- Mario Bros pcb (working condition)
- DK marquee
please let me know, 3 out of 4 parcels got "lost" after being arrived at COW (track and trace status). That would be a record I think.

Or do any of you have a Mario Bros board for sale? :)

As anybody knows i had 4 cabs to pick it up in bremen, but the weather in the morning was very dangerous to drive (especially with a huge trailer), because there were a lot of snow and black ice on the streets in my area. so i must leave my home w/o a trailer and have space only for 1 cab in my car... but no prob for me, i will go then to berlin to pick up the 3 cabs leftover (space duel, nintendo vs project, assault).




Second:
Oh great, there are still about 20 cabs left over in the storage. Darn. Oh well. Happy you guys are happy!  :pac: :pac: :pac:
Well, if you had mentioned yesterday that you wanted them all gone, I would have loved to take that versus Nintendo (project) off your hands :)
sorry joeks, this nintendo vs cab is mine and i pick it up later from storage in berlin...  :wink:

Guys, I have someone's DK bezel here. It was smuggled in the truck.

I had a DK bezel in the container, but I got a message from Love he had it. I bought it from a guy located in Sanford, Florida, United States. Bought it off ebay, I ask the guy to put anunaki on it, not sure if he did.

Well, if Love already has your bezel, than this should be someone elses I guess?

What I don't understand, there was NO address label on the package and on the one parcel I did get (out of four) there was no label whatsoever too.
Why would anybody rip them off? No wonder things get lost.
I told sellers from whom I bought to mark it clearly, "Coinopwarehouse ATTN. Barry Buise for Thomas' container".
And they all did arrive at Lloyd if I check the track and trace status.

Gents, please relax. I asked Lloyd to remove stickers to avoid trouble with customs in case they open the container. Didnt know they would put stuff in cabs though. And I had no time to check really.

Tracking parts is kind of tricky. Especially with a partner like COW. Cabs are easy as you can just identify them by looking at them. Parts are in boxes, wrapped up etc.

That said, lets sort this out. I will contact you guys via PM.

Yeah I think its yours.

Now that there are parcels popping up in cabs all over europe I might need to chek the 20 that are left in the storage unit very thoroughly. Bad news is I will be there in 10 days again, not earlier.

Besides putting large boxes into cabs (I hope it didn't break something underneath) they broke the lock of the back cover. When I pulled it open in Trier the lock along with some piece of the wood around it simply broke and fell down, I think two guys from Tyrem's team stood nearby and saw it....and no, I'm not THAT strong ;)  The key was in the coin box and the coin door was open.

No offense to anyone here but we should make clear they won't do such things again in the future :)

Yes, CoW could have been a bit more cautious with some things. For instance I thought that the key on my Dr. Mario coindoor was lost, so this morning I was ready to drill out the lock. But just before driving the drill into the lock I saw some metal inside the lock. Yes, it was the beard of the key, broken off appearantly. I took a screwdriver, jammed it in the lock and turned the lock. Voila, the coindoor opened.  :)

Unfortunately inside there was no key present for the backdoor.  :(

Post by: Luigi on April 01, 2013, 07:06:43 PM
Sirs, I've got a problem I wanted to discuss with you.

My Journey came from a private seller. Thomas has sent me pictures. Therre was also one from the inside.

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/2012-08-11_16-25-40_544.jpg)

The picture is blurry but you can see the machine is complete.

The cab then was picked up by TNT Amusement (you know, the guys that throw cabs and pinballs from their roof) for $250. It was waiting there to be picked up by the COW-team.

To be sure what artwork I will need to restore the cab I asked for some pictures. Todd from TNT has sent pictures to Thomas who forwarded them to me. Here's also one from the inside.

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/Tammy_152.jpg)

If you'll take a closer look at the PCB-set you can see that the bracket has been removed but the PCB-set is still the same...nice and clean.

In Trier I already recognized that the PCBs are just hanging lose inside but didn't care that much. Today I tested the cab, didn't work. Not even the scrambled screen from the pictures of the private seller. I opened the cab and pulled out the PCB-set. The bracket was laying inside on the floor. I took it home to compare it with pics from the internet.

Here's the PCB-set that was inside:

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/Platinensatz_kein_journey.jpg)

Little different to the nice and clean set on Todd's picture, eh?  :evil:

Here's how a Journey-PCB-set should look like. From quarterarcade.com

(http://www.thludwig.de/arcade/pics/journey-pickup/journey-pcbset-quarterarcade.jpg)


I'm sure that Todd replaced the original PCBs with some dirty crap. I disassembled the set and found stickers on the eproms that say TIGER'...might be Two Tigers.

Of course I will confront Todd with these pictures. Of course he will say he didn't change the PCB-set  :( 

Any hint how to get this moron at his balls?? He just turned out to be the asshole he is in his videos >:(

Well, mixed feelings for me.
Got my Kung Fu Master...but the condition is badder than expected... Worst, the cabinet has been damaged somewhere 'in the process'.
This will give me unexpected 'extra wor'k on that cabinet, but also change its value, regarding the price I paid...
I'll post more details in the road trip to come.

@thorsten: that is really really REALLY bad. what makes me curious though is the fact that todd took pictures of the cab's interior for you and then afterwards he should have changed the pcb? wouldn't that be utmost stupid for him to do?

Todd replied and swore that he never does anything like this to cabs he doesn't own. I'm willing to believe him. André, and Ully, you're right with your point.

Here's another version: the bracket losened during transportation and COW replaced the PCB.

I will go after that...

Although I don't like Todd's cab-throwing, I think this is not like him at all....

I have had two dealings with him in the past. One went perfect. Excellent fast communications, realistic prices for both product and shipping.
The 2nd deal took very long to arrive here. So long that I mailed him about it that it was WAY longer than any normal air-shipment to me (talking about 4 weeks...)
After a day or two he mailed me that he had re-checked my shipping and it turned out that accidentally it was shipped _surface_ mail instead of by air. At the same time as sending that mail he also immediately had refunded me the difference in shipping price to my PayPal. It wasn't that large of an amount but I do think that does say something....oh and the package did arrive in the end, I had no real hurry with it so it was also no problem that way...

Of course, and it must have been at TNT, COW or in Bremen. I cannot imagine the latter. The original seller shiopped the right thing, Todd's picture is the proof.

Stefan, I had never wasted any thought that you guys could have replaced the PCB :)


I will try to clean the "Two Tigers" PCBs and populate it with new eproms...maybe it can be turned into Journey....

bremen is very unlikely. impossible on saturday at least. your cab was the first i found in all of those cabs and the first that got loaded in our truck.
and i did not see any people with screwdrivers there.. or people working on cabs. we were all busy with loading those beasts that day.

No, not really  ;)

I hoped it was Todd and the picture with the missing bracket would make him admit the 'crime'. But he swore that he only opened the back door for taking the picture.

I already started to clean the PCBs. There's really a lot of dirt on it. Shit, if only I would have received the original one  (http://www.thludwig.de/pics/smilies/weeping.gif)

That's a shame about the changed pcb :(

I opened up my Mario Bros widebody today.
It supposed to be "complete" as Lloyd stated, but it's missing the pcb  >:(

Other than that, it's clean as a whistle. Like NOS. Can't complain about that.

But instead of TWO Mario Bros pcb's I now have NONE. Awesome.
Still happy with the cabinets deal, but I will not have any parcels in future containers for sure.

Damn, this is getting pretty nasty. Let's hope that some publicity will solve things. In the meanwhile I have played quite some rounds on Gyruss, and it plays great. And I did check if dr. Mario is complete, looking through the coin door, which seems to be the case. And from there I could reach the power cable. Unfortunately I couldn't start the game because the power plug looks like a leathal weapon, or something used on death row. Everywhere naked copper wiring, almost in contact with each other.

But this is just a minor issue, I hope that everything will work out OK for you guys in the end.

Christ, not on the forum for a day and A LOT of drama going on. First off, sorry sorry sorry for the issues! Very sorry! It is a learning process for me here and this kind of stuff will not happen again. I actually wanted to do the next container with Cow and move to doing them myself afterwards. Now I will consider to do the next one myself already.

That said, lets sort out what we have here.

1 - I made a mistake giving Anunakis DK bezel to Barry. Very sorry for that.
2 - ChrisChris Q*Bert is not as expected, Missing monitor and Knocker.
3 - Someone switched the pcb set in Luigis Journey on the journey (believe me, it didnt happen in Europe, no way). I will inquire with COW.
4 - Cpt. Kirks Star Trek is missing parts. Will inquire with seller and COW.
5 - Barry is missing parts. They might be in some of the cabs left at the warehouse in Bremen. As I didnt ask for parts being stored in cabs ever, I didnt check them yet. Will check cabs and inquire with COW if necessary.

Did I forget something?

argh.. kirk and luigi??? great... two cabs we brought home for them plus the damaged cab from bruno... i feel a bit strange now. candy in chrischris missile command seems to be missing, too. :(

i have a popeye in that one. maybe somebody can bring that to me cause berlin is far away. otherwise i could try to get the cab in a bmw x3... this should work... what do you think, guys?

Same here!! No attack on Thomas in any way!

Both, TNT and COW stated it did not happen at their place. If THEY did not make it then one of their team did it. Lloyd meanwhile suspects a customer or employee in the line..  ??? Don't know what to think about that. He offered a clean Two Tigers PCB-set (like the one in my cab) for free.....hmm....maybe he knows more than he is willing to say....argh, no, I'm starting to suspect people again which wil not help here.

But Dirk's situation is far worse. I guess he did not get the right cab. Didn't someone recently mention a Star Trek cab with a signature (autograph) on the marquee??

If I cannot sort out Dirks Star Trek he will get mine. Be happy now! Right away!

It's over an hour by car, so I'd rather not bring it.

I can come pick it up in Goes, maybe you can show me your collection (and play it?)

And for Thomas: with a huge thing like this, some things will always go wrong. All these different people from overseas are involved. It sucks bigtime for those with issues, but things happen also when you buy straight of ebay or so.

Hopefully you can fix as much things as possible, I will pick up my bezel, so you deon't need to worry about that.

Nice Movie, Andre :spaceace:

Guys, just got a reply from Lloyd of Coinopwarehouse regarding the missing stuff.
I quote "We unpacked most of the boxes and put the stuff inside other cabinets, to avoid a customs problem. The parts are probably inside other machines. One Q Bert had dozens of peoples stuff in it."

So I hope peoples missing parts get returned to their rightfull owners :)

He is referring to ChrisChris Q*Bert. All that was in there is, well, not in there anymore. Lets wait til I check the remaining 20 cabs next week friday for the stuff that is missing.

I asked Lloyd about my Mario Bros Widebody too.
Bought it from COW, complete with pcb, as Lloyd replied to me this morning.
Guess what, NO pcb in the cabinet when I opened it. Just an empty Nintendo pcb cage.

Lloyd says someone must have taken it. Possibly at his place but he doesn't know.
Good thing, he says he will find me another one at his expense! :)

Christ, not on the forum for a day and A LOT of drama going on. First off, sorry sorry sorry for the issues! Very sorry! It is a learning process for me here and this kind of stuff will not happen again. I actually wanted to do the next container with Cow and move to doing them myself afterwards. Now I will consider to do the next one myself already.

That said, lets sort out what we have here.

1 - I made a mistake giving Anunakis DK bezel to Barry. Very sorry for that.
2 - ChrisChris Q*Bert is not as expected, Missing monitor and Knocker.
3 - Someone switched the pcb set in Luigis Journey on the journey (believe me, it didnt happen in Europe, no way). I will inquire with COW.
4 - Cpt. Kirks Star Trek is missing parts. Will inquire with seller and COW.
5 - Barry is missing parts. They might be in some of the cabs left at the warehouse in Bremen. As I didnt ask for parts being stored in cabs ever, I didnt check them yet. Will check cabs and inquire with COW if necessary.

Did I forget something?


Yes, please add the problem about my KFM cabinet : damaged on the left front edge  :ghost: Will post pictures tonight... 

OK, here's the pictures.

The picture cabinet provided by the seller :

Following the pictures, something goes wrong between the loading stage in the van & Trier  :-X

Well, I can understand the base of the cabinet is very fragile because no more leg  :arrow: rotten wood, but the wood on the edges is very strong... so what happen with the cabinet?  ???

That corner was probably weakened by some water damage, but not broken initially. As I said I can understand that bottom corner may be broken during the move, but I'm wondering what happened to the front left edge...   :ghost:

I think you see the rest of that T-molding on that corner.

Not sure who told me, but I heard someone picked up a cab by a corner and next thing he had that very corner in his hand.....pictures not always tell the whole story....

No offense but why not first ask the guys who transported it for you in a PM ?

hm.. from those pics it seems that it must have happened while unloading but i really can not remember any damage done to your cab except the little piece i gave to you when you picked it up here, bruno. we took so much care while driving and there was absolutely no noise while we drove to trier. no bumps, nothing.

really sorry to see this... but how the hell should that have taken place? the edges were far away from any part of the van and the other cab was on top of it. the cabs were secured as well.

of course i will take full responsibility and compensate anything you need to fix the cab.


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Tyrem on April 02, 2013, 09:54:26 PM
just saw your pics. since i am responsible for transporting the cab to you i will take full responsibility for the damage allthough i still have no clue how this could happen. just tell me how to make up for this and i will do it.


ups.. this was supposed to be a message to bruno. :) should not post and watch football at the same time.

hm.. take a look at those pics. bruno.. could it be that your cab is the one on top and not the one at the on the floor of the truck? please check this if you look under the cab. cause if this is the case then i know what caused the damage... we secured the cabs with those orange stripes. i guess this did cause a cut on the left side. the position could match the damage. remember that we had two kung fus in the van... also you see the allready damaged left corner on the top one.

yepp checked the video. we unloaded that one again and it ended up on top of the other one. you can see it if you look at the plate of the cab. the two little rubber parts are missing. :( this is brunos cab.

so the stripes that were ment to secure the cabs from moving did the harm. really sorry... cause it was also me who did this. the place to secure the cab was given by the van though cause there are only limited holes in such a car to put those in.

Well, always use a protection (piece of strong cardboard, foam board, or even 'clothes') between stripes and cabinets, especially on such fragile areas like 'front edges' of cabinets... :-\ Bah! Usual beginner's mistake!  ::)  :P

just saw your pics. since i am responsible for transporting the cab to you i will take full responsibility for the damage allthough i still have no clue how this could happen.

Well, now you own me... A Burger King meal and a full 'personal Trier tour' next time I'll come over there ;) No problem Stefan, I'm still happy you got back this cabinet for me... but it was important for me to understand what happened!  ;)

Gents, we have a nice show going on here. I'd call it "The Arcade Game Murder Mystery" for now. And consider this to be a working title.

Good news first. Capt Kirks Star Trek is still here in Bremen. And doesnt look as empty as mine does (which is the one at his place).

Now the bad news. Someone COMPLETELY stripped a fully working SEGA Star Trek vector game with the Vectorlabs multi kit and all sound boards installed. Completely fuckin empty now. The autograph is from Leonard Nimoy by the way. Not kidding. Not not not.

Another bad news. No more parts in the cabs. No extra chassis for Capt Kirks Star Trek either. I am missing some stuff too.

As there is the Journey board missing too, I tend to belive all of this happened at COW. I will talk to Lloyd and see what he thinks. I dont think that any of his staff did this. I met them, they are nice, and they are not into these games or hardware at all.

I dont know. Life goes on. Lets make some kids tonight and cry to the moon.

Woooohooooooooooo.

Will keep you posted.

if not his staff, who else then? are there other people lving / working there who have the time and access to empty a complete cab without anyone noticing? reading this makes me somewhat worried about our other games still at COW. get your hands of my tapper, guys ... 8)

Ok, thanks Thomas, uplifting news (sort of). I forgot to mention: I've received a parcel from Tyrem with the 'Tac Scan' Boardcage.
There are 4 or 5 Boards installed iirc, must check tomorrow. Any chance that the G80 Multiboards have been stored in another cab? (as mentioned earlier by COW)

BTW. Wow, a genuine Leonard Nimoy signature...... Bazinga ;D

Seriously, from a composition point of view I dont think its awesome. Its detailed and premium quality production, yes, but it lacks the "das gewisse etwas". Colors are weak. Space ship design is boring. Compositon is boring. Details are not used very well. Overall it is so average, I cant even remember what the game is when I see it. Literally. And dont make me start a rant on the cp colors ;)

But cool game :)

As far as I followed this thread there's alos a DK Jr. board missing that should be there. I'm very sure that Lloyd has a problem in his warehouse. Offering free boards to the involved people makes me think he knows that.

btw...his staff might not be into arcadegames...but they're for sure into making some extra money

Watching auctions and other stuff now doesn't make sense cause all this could already have happened in autumn 2012.

I think the cabs in the future will be better 'guarded'. I still believe that Lloyd is a good man and he will not let this happen again....at least I hope so.


Thomas, this means that IMHO someone pulled the PCBs from the cabs to sell them/make some extra money. That's all, nothing more. No offense against you or Lloyd!!  :)

maybe. though i still work on this one.

just some background info. i only get games people explicitely want me to source for them. in case i do get a nice list of games offered, i forward it to people who expressed interest in such kind of offers. this works fine so far and i see no reason to maintain a for sale thread at this point. a thread is just a lot of work and slooooooooow.

i will give it some thought though.

Short update.

The second container is full (more or less). And I am going to the US this weekend to deal with the remaining ?'s locally. Also to "adjust my logistics workflow" to higher security standards. Lol.

This might sound like we have a major disaster here, but I dont think so at all. There are some issues that I will sort out one way or the other, but aside of these this adventure did work out very well.

Update after I am back next week.

Tested my frogger this afternoon;
Not working...  :'( but of course it was sold as working by CoinOpWarehouse. >:(

I bought 2 things from them so far and they screwed me 2 times (one "complete" Q*bert that they shipped without monitor and one "working" Frogger that has a dead PCB).
This is just to warn collectors about "nice" Lloyd and his blurry pictures of cabs on trailers.

By the way: this post is absolutely not bitter (I'll fix everything and I'm still really happy with my cabs from the container) and certainly not against the hard work of Thomas (not the Kung-Fu Master, the German Master).

Is it about time to blow the whistle about COW on KLOV forum/Facebook?

I saw on Facebook they were loading up a container for Holland (probably Jukeboxes/pins)....

I think they did a pretty piss poor job on this whole deal and I'm kinda glad I didn't get a cab in that container....

Of course because of that I am not getting into this and I assume Love is still working on this ?

But I hate to see friends get screwed and I hate injustice.....


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Q*ris on April 11, 2013, 11:24:24 PM
Thanks, definitely feels good to be supported like that!
IMHO they were clearly the weakest link in this whole deal but I'd rather give it a bit more time and let Thomas work his magic and try to get hem to make things right before blowing the alarm whistle on forums.
(about the container to Holland it's mainly american memorabilia and they are years long friends/customers so I guess they are treated better).


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: anunaki on April 11, 2013, 11:33:08 PM
Well, obv things have gone wrong with this deal, and I honestly feel a little concerned about my DK cab in the #2. I also feel sorry for guys like Chris and Thorsten.

But at the end of the day things can go wrong with a project like this and the most important thing is how the involved party will solve things.

Love is going to visit COW, it is still a possibility COW will sort things out.



Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Luigi on April 12, 2013, 06:54:10 AM
Well, it can always happen that a cab that was working before shipping is dead now. It's often only reseating ICs in sockets and cables/plugs. It's a completely different thing when stuff is not where it is supposed to be.


Let's Thomas finish Container #2 before starting to blame COW. I have no proof where my PCB was replaced so what can I do?

Thomas will be over there this weekend IIRC and it would be very bad for him if there was a bashing against COW. As far as both said there will be no container #3 with COW. Also don't be too afraid about your cabs in #2. I think, at least I hope that Lloyd won#t let this happen again :)


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: Tup on April 12, 2013, 06:40:12 PM
So far my Kungfu Master which was on the container too works like a charm. But then again, Thomas bought this one for me from another seller than Lloyd. It really sucks for all you guys that got the bad end of this deal and I hope that Thomas will be able to work things out. I also hope that there will be much kess problems with the next shipment!


Title: Re: US container #1 CoinOpWarehouse
Post by: TimePilot on April 13, 2013, 10:21:50 AM
ok, this time my experience with the container buy in the USA :arrow:

1. Nintendo VS Hogans Alley, sold from Lloyd as working: test works fine! :spaceace:
2. Atari Space Duel, sold from coinopdoctor as working: test works fine! :spaceace:
3. Nintendo Duck Hunt VS, sold from coinopdoctor as project cab incl. add parts: test every parts there, very trustful. :spaceace:

4. my Atari Assault is still in storage by thomas.

Visual problems only with the Hogans Alley, because the front wood piece down at the foot is missing. otherwise only minor defects on cabs.

for me here you get a clear 2+ for the transaction.

Though sometimes in my bed, right before falling asleep I picture myself the guy who stole my MC coin box full of American candies eating them and I stand up in the bed screaming "whyyyyyyyyy" platoon style...
Oh well, all in all, for such a far away and complicated deal, I think it went pretty well thanks to Love-Fu Master.

Well, there did happen some surreal things with a couple of cabs. No one knows what happened, and its hard to find out as it must have happened some time last year, but Lloyd and me try to make sure everyone will come out okay in the end. (@Capt. Kirk: I have a brand new multi G80 kit here + your cab).

And even more important, we both will make sure this kind of stuff is not going to happen again.
