Bruno !!!

This adventure (because it REALLY was an adventure !!!) could be one of the most colossal "cabinet recovery trips" ever seen !
I'm sure you all should be able to find and recover a pinball inside the submerged hull of the Titanic !!!
Maybe Omero could have wanted to say something about it in his Iliad and Odyssey... and even Kubrick in hi "TwoThousandsAndOne", but in that case, the "Monolith" is ONLY mine Wink Cheesy !

Wasn't there an arcade room in there? Oliver could you double check please?  Wink

Hi guys,

This week-end, I had a deal with Kidicarus who had some NES consoles left for me. We had to meet at the house of Chris, and I had the opportunity to meet him. I have rarely meet someone with so much passion for the world of the arcade, and would like to thank him for his hospitality and the very nice moment we could share. Most of all, he showed me the storage place where "some" of his cabs were stored. I never thought it was possible to put so many cabs in these rooms, but every one of them made me dream: these Space Invaders, some Pac-Man here and there, a lovely pair of Out Run, motherboards everywhere, a Vectrex lost between the roof and a cab, flips and cocktails, if lights were turned on, I could misunderstood with the cave of wonders of Alladin!  Wink

Thanks Kidicarus and Chris for this great moment!

Crazy Roadtrip !

Just in case, I may have, if my memory is correct, a japanese full plastic glass for the taito Space Invaders, in Spare.
Maybe it can help the guy who had taken the broken one.

Amazing to see the protective case on the glass of the Centipede too !

All best

@Wil2000: thanks buddy, you're welcome anytime and next time I even promise to plug at least a game for you (if I can reach the plug).
@GuerreFroide: I happen to be the lucky owner of the SI with a smashed bezel. Man the guts of this machine are VERY clean, I have a good hopes that it could be easy to restore. I'm very interested in the bezel of course, I'm located in Belgium, let me know if you find it back. MANY THANKS!

I will eventually sell one for sure but not until September/October.
You'll be the first one to know if you're interested. I will definitely keep the one from the ship for sentimental reasons Smiley
