I don't know... I guess it'll change when I'll have kids  :roll: :P

OK... the story is far to be finished of course  ::) 8)

Each time I go to my mother's & Freddy's place, I'm bringing some G3 stuff.

Today, one more seat...



Have a look at the *original* 'Attack of the Zolgear' sticker on the coin door :



Coins of 50 BEF... maybe one of them was mine a long time ago  ::)8)



Ok, let's bring all of that @ home :

Hey Bruno!!  Looking great..   ;D

I have a question for you, I don't think it was asked before...  ???

This is such a huge game!! 

1. How much did it cost you  (if too personal, I apologize, skip this question)....

2 How were you able to talk them out of this game?    (I've been able to talk store managers out of posters and displays but THIS is no comparison!!!)      Maybe because it's old & you got a good deal to take it away?

Just Curious...  It's an incredible game, heck not a game but an experience!!!   (I've never seen/played it, but just the way it looks I know it's awesome!

For the first question... I use my 'joker'  ;D  ;)

I was very lucky : during the 'negotiation' the operator had the idea to transform his Arcade, and of course, that 'old' Theater is so huge and uses so many space on the floor  ::)... I were at the good place, at the right time I would say  ;)

Have you already planned when you will build your game room V3 ?

I know I might have mentioned this before....   :shock:   I hope you made a very well drawn out re-assembly instruction sheet with pictures!   The longer it takes to put back together, the more you might forget!!   "I don't remember this part, where does it go?"  ???

Gonna take a vacation to put this one together??   Gonna need a lot of concentration for this game!!  ;)

I'm anxious for ver 3 of the gameroom to be built.  I can't wait to see the galaxian put back together.

Yeps Barry... I've a lot of pictures and I've done some video during these two days... I hope It'll help me when I'll re-assemble the game.
I'll need Burt of course, because he was there and I know he has a good memory  :)

Yes... my first idea was to built v2 + v3... but it was too difficult (in term of money, architect, timing...) ... but be sure to see one day the

Galaxian in the Nuno's Lair v  ;) :-*

Ok, today... let's bring some serious stuff at home  :)

Burt has only one part of my G ...but what a part : one of the three PCBs box (rack?)  :arrow:



Let's load it my car :



Holy Jesus...it's heavy  :o





Hopefully, Burt is a strong man  ;D  :arrow:



This stuff will go at the first floor of my ..."house"  ::) :P

Hey bruno did you ever think about the fact that all the things you take upstairs have to come down someday??? Or are planning to put the gameroom V3 on top of your house, let's say expanding the attic... lol.  ;)
God must love crazy people, he made so many of them!!
