Arcade Lifestyle / Road Trip from Brussels to UK??
« on: February 20, 2012, 02:38:41 PM »

Is anyone planning a Road Trip from Brussels to UK anytime soon?  If so, could you please get in touch with me, as I have some parts I could do with being bought over into the UK from one of our DLF members.

There would of course be a cash reward for the effort, could work out nice both sides.

Galaxian Theater / The hunt for Flashboy (In Tokyo)
« on: July 16, 2010, 10:18:06 PM »
I flew out to Tokyo for a weeks holiday on the 3rd July, and thought this would be a good opportunity to try and source some spare Flashboy bulbs for my beloved Namco Starblade.

I managed to find out from someone that the best place in Tokyo for electronics and electric items is a busy place called Akhibara. It was just a five minute ride on the subway from Tokyo Train Station. Once I arrived at Akhibara I started to try and find where the interesting shops were.

Ah ha! I am on the right track;

Finally I arrive at the Taito Game Station, must pose here and get a photo taken;

It was not long before I found a shop dedicated to selling just lights, all kind of lights, every kind of light you could imagine but I could not see any Flashboys. I try to ask the shop owner, but my Japanese is no existant so it was tough trying to explain.

So I leave the shop to try and find another.  However, along the way I could not resist visiting some arcades and dropping some Yen into them;

I also shot some HD video footage of the arcade if anyone is interested, it was SHMUP heaven.....

Still no sign of Flashboy, but I did stumble on the new XBOX360;

Hang on a minute, whats that I see???

Yes! Its a Japanese sign with Flashboys on top of it! Now I can take a picture of them and use them to show the lighting shop owner, in the universal language of pictures!

I show the Japanese lighting shop owner the Flashboy picture on my camera and he directs me to another shop, at last I have found it!!

They were 4800 Yen which was about £45, but hey if you need them you need them!

Galaxian Theater / Starblade Artwork Reproduction
« on: May 17, 2010, 03:43:02 PM »
I am looking to replace the Artwork on my Namco Starblade. Unfortunately NOS stuff is nowhere to be found at Namco UK.

I have started with the Gun Controller vinyl, which I have scanned and sent to Scott at MameMarquees;

Scott has now vectored the image and is sending me the first sample.

I am in the process of scanning the side art of the cabinet and monitor housing. Once done I will be vectoring the images and have Scott reproduce them.
