What a great week end  Tongue  This first exhibition was really cool  Shocked

A lot of friends, fun & -of course- great games  Smiley

Well, by 'games' I mean mostly 'Pinballs', but few arcade games was there ... including my *Space Ace* of course  

Ok, so here we are ... few days before the exhibition... let's prepare the display ... Pimp my monitor  Cool   arrow









Oh, and I'll also "ArcadeLifeStyle" costomize this desktop  roll eyes  arrow



I'm only  able to get one cabinet to Paris for this exhibition... So the best one for me is the Space Ace cabinet.... because it's the best exemple of what we can do for a cab' :

- Roadtrip (see here)
- Huge restoration (see here)

OK, let's load it in the car :



All the stuff are loaded... ready to go for ... Paris  Tongue



I'll be at this exhibition under the banner of the french website WWW.GAMOOVER.NET, where I'm from the staff, and so, we meet us first to choose the other games to bring at the exhibition  Cool   arrow

...arriving at the Misteriddler's house... Zorg is already here  Smiley



...let's choose a pinball ...



...wmwwweell, not the Cirqus Voltaire, but THIS one : MEDIEVAL MADNESS  Tongue



Ok, because I'm already bring on a dedicated cab' with the Space Ace, we will bring an Astro City cab... but ... there is not enough space to remove the game from that room  confused  Not a problem, let's remove a part of the door  arrow



...it's fine now...



OK... 2h30 later ... he are on loacation ... the hall is almost empty... it's friday evening  arrow



...unloading the stuff ...



Crazy kids  roll eyes    lol   arrow




OK, it's time to build up the *stand* :







...very dangerous job...  Cool







We also got some pachislots :



... time to eat with few  other collectors...  Shocked



...and having some fun too  



All our pachislot are now ready...



...and the Space Ace / Astro cabinets too  Tongue   arrow



The stand is almost done... We'll finish it tomorrow morning, coz we're too tired now... So let's sleep untill...

The Day 1

...few last adjustments before the opening...



Staff members are trying Space Ace  arrow



I got also a Vectrex... in order to show what is a true Vector monitor  Cool





Ace... my Hero...



Can your recognize the monitor now ?



Chat with the main event organisator  arrow



...what is the orginal ? Both ? repro ? Nos ? ...  lol



Because it wasn't a pure vintage arcade games expo, I decided to use a computer/Daphne setup in that cab, instead the real laser disc hardware... So this cab will play Space Ace, Dragon's Lair & Dragon's Lair II  Shocked



Very nice to see young kids around this 'cartoon' game... like was a long ago  oppps   arrow



Overview of the stand that we shared with our friends of the website www.flippers-jukeboxes.net  Cool Thanks to them to let us be here with them  Tongue  Shocked



Kids playing Space Ace ...



It's the perfect spot to show them the upcoming Dragon's Lair for Nintendo DS  Smiley  Shocked



People still love the *classics*  Cool
















Day two



































...time to eat... and celebrate  Cool  lol





...back on our stand...











It's sunday, and because there is an 'important' match in this Rugby World Cup 2007 ...in France...  most of the visitors leave soon  confused

Because we have to go back in Belgium, it's time to leave for us too :









...and it's time to say goodbye to our friends  Cool  ...



...After UK, Belgium, Paris ... that Space Ace will go back home ... in my Lair in Belgium     arrow



It was a really great week end. Greats pinballs, a lot of fun, nice meeting... This first edition was a real succes  Tongue

I hope next year there will be more arcade games  roll eyes
