When i got rid of my collection a few years back there were a few things i couldn't bear to lose so i held onto them - amongst them is this little beauty, the forerunner to the hugely successful 'Simon' game of the 70's, and also a fun little game to play!



Anyone else got one?

I went to let years event and yeah, itys mainly pinball, but there were plenty of decent videos as listed above, a few of which were for sale! It was a great event, really got me into pinball, and it wasn't too busy either so it was easy to get on any machine you liked, ill definitely be going for both days this year!

Lovely stuff like this...



Also had minty boxed Magnavox Odysseys, Coleco Gemini and Atari 5200, stuff you just don't see in Europe..

All sadly gone now...

Thanks for the nice welcome - as time goes on i am tending to move away from the candy cabs towards dedicated stuff i remember from my youth in the 80's so hopefully over time will be able to build a decent collection.

I have always been into games and had a MASSIVE collection about 10 years ago of consoles and games - including a lot of rare stuff that i imported - but was persuaded by my then-girlfriend to get rid of it all to spend money on the house and free up some room  Cry The only thing i kept was my PAL Heavy Sixer Atari VCS which i wouldn't trade for any money!

Fortunately i am now with a far more understanding girl who is happy for me to indulge my hobby so good times ahead!

Although i have a couple of posts in the 'for sale' section  Roll Eyes I figure it is best to actually introduce myself before i get into any more trouble!

Basically, UK based, in the South East just outside Dover, and have been into arcade cabs for about 8 years, have owned a few and sold a few, but am finally looking to add dedicated machines to my room as i have found that Mame just doesn't cut it with most of my favourites!

I have previously owned a Mushiking and Lordsvale NeoGeo as well as various cocktail cabs but stupidly sold them on when i needed some cash so currently own:


and



The Star Wars has also got the Empire Strikes Back kit in it although i think the game is pants, and that is a Judge Dredd pinball next to it. As per my post on the sales section I am looking to get hold of my 2 other 'Holy Grail' machines - a Sinistar (which i hopefully have actually found  Grin) and a Tron, once i have those then i will probably slow down the buying a little before setting off on a quest for my '2nd tier' machines - Gorf, Juno First, Robotron, Retrun of the Jedi.

I have been reading this forum for years as i was always a huge fan of Dragons Lair back in the 80's and could complete it on single-touches, unfortunately when i play it in Daphne these days i can't seem to get anywhere...

Anyway..... hi!

Thanks for the welcome guys, despite my initial faux pas! I may be a step closer to one of my grail machines thanks to Alpha's post above, rest assured there will be plenty of posts from me if it all comes off!

Yeah, i see your point - thing is i have been reading the forum for a long time (long before i registered) and don't really post too much on most forums unless there are specific technical issues i have etc...

feel free to delete the thread if you like...

Im on a mega-quest to get hold of a couple of my 'holy grail' machines, a Tron or a Sinistar. Cosmetic condition isn't as important as the fact they must work fine as i am happy to restore art etc.

I know they are rare and expensive, particularly in the UK where I live. It would also be helpful if anyone has experience of getting cabs moved from the mainland Europe to the UK as I have never done this before - I live just outside Dover so at least I can see Europe from here!

I have plenty of feedback on eBay, arcade-otaku and Jamma+ so if you are bored with your machines and looking to sell let me know!

Thanks,
chubs
