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 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!

Wow, that was in excellent condition !

Welcome here and again, not a personal thing in the sales thread...

Atari SW easily compensates the three cadies WinkWinkWink

I sold my Judge Dredd not too long ago. It was great restoring it and playing it for some time but I in the end I couldnt house it anymore, or more truthfully: I prefer to put videogames in the space that I have Wink

Does yours have the dead-world ring mod ?  I makes the game much more fun IMHO....

+1 Always nice to see pictures of a fantastic looking Astro. I myself have 2 New Astro's, and if I were you, I would reconsider getting rid of your candy's. You know, they can be combined perfectly with classic cabs in this hobby.
