Tested my frogger this afternoon;
Not working...  Cry but of course it was sold as working by CoinOpWarehouse. Angry

I bought 2 things from them so far and they screwed me 2 times (one "complete" Q*bert that they shipped without monitor and one "working" Frogger that has a dead PCB).
This is just to warn collectors about "nice" Lloyd and his blurry pictures of cabs on trailers.

By the way: this post is absolutely not bitter (I'll fix everything and I'm still really happy with my cabs from the container) and certainly not against the hard work of Thomas (not the Kung-Fu Master, the German Master).

Is it about time to blow the whistle about COW on KLOV forum/Facebook?

I saw on Facebook they were loading up a container for Holland (probably Jukeboxes/pins)....

I think they did a pretty piss poor job on this whole deal and I'm kinda glad I didn't get a cab in that container....

Of course because of that I am not getting into this and I assume Love is still working on this ?

But I hate to see friends get screwed and I hate injustice.....

Thanks, definitely feels good to be supported like that!
IMHO they were clearly the weakest link in this whole deal but I'd rather give it a bit more time and let Thomas work his magic and try to get hem to make things right before blowing the alarm whistle on forums.
(about the container to Holland it's mainly american memorabilia and they are years long friends/customers so I guess they are treated better).

Well, obv things have gone wrong with this deal, and I honestly feel a little concerned about my DK cab in the #2. I also feel sorry for guys like Chris and Thorsten.

But at the end of the day things can go wrong with a project like this and the most important thing is how the involved party will solve things.

Love is going to visit COW, it is still a possibility COW will sort things out.

Well, it can always happen that a cab that was working before shipping is dead now. It's often only reseating ICs in sockets and cables/plugs. It's a completely different thing when stuff is not where it is supposed to be.


Let's Thomas finish Container #2 before starting to blame COW. I have no proof where my PCB was replaced so what can I do?

Thomas will be over there this weekend IIRC and it would be very bad for him if there was a bashing against COW. As far as both said there will be no container #3 with COW. Also don't be too afraid about your cabs in #2. I think, at least I hope that Lloyd won#t let this happen again Smiley

So far my Kungfu Master which was on the container too works like a charm. But then again, Thomas bought this one for me from another seller than Lloyd. It really sucks for all you guys that got the bad end of this deal and I hope that Thomas will be able to work things out. I also hope that there will be much kess problems with the next shipment!

ok, this time my experience with the container buy in the USA arrow

1. Nintendo VS Hogans Alley, sold from Lloyd as working: test works fine! Space Ace
2. Atari Space Duel, sold from coinopdoctor as working: test works fine! Space Ace
3. Nintendo Duck Hunt VS, sold from coinopdoctor as project cab incl. add parts: test every parts there, very trustful. Space Ace

4. my Atari Assault is still in storage by thomas.

Visual problems only with the Hogans Alley, because the front wood piece down at the foot is missing. otherwise only minor defects on cabs.

for me here you get a clear 2+ for the transaction.

Short update.

The second container is full (more or less). And I am going to the US this weekend to deal with the remaining ?'s locally. Also to "adjust my logistics workflow" to higher security standards. Lol.

This might sound like we have a major disaster here, but I dont think so at all. There are some issues that I will sort out one way or the other, but aside of these this adventure did work out very well.

Update after I am back next week.


How did the recent trip go?
