actually i dont blame him. he seems to be a nice guy and he bought both cabs in the states. he had to pay shipping for them... and he was not able to share a container with others. in fact he thought he was the only guy in germany interested in arcade machines and he does not know that people like us exist. Smiley
his offer for tempest and dl was 6000 euros for me. i guess that comes close to what he did pay back then when he bought them in the us.

He's going to get to feel much more OUCH when he realizes he's never ever going to get that amount of money...

i don't think he hopes to get that amount after we talked. he wanted me to make an offer but i told him that he should not sell it to me. i am sure there are fans out here in europe that will pay good money for a dl that is located here. i have all the time in the world. i simply wait till John gets bored with his machine (in three of four weeks, John? Wink Smiley Wink )...

blew me away yesterday. i was in contact with the seller when the auction started and he was hoping for 2000... but i was totally surprised that it really reached this level.
well... he is a nice guy and the machine seemed to be in good condition.

You can do it!!! GREAT GAME!

Are the Atari ones easier to find in Europe? Or do you want a Cinematronic one?

Well, the Atari ones are really hard to catch. And it's not especially a matter of money...it's just that the few owners of these ladies just don't want to sell them.
It would be more easy for someone who really want a Dragon's Lair to import a Cinematronic one via the Love container for example... I see quite often Cinematronics for sale on ebay US.
But finding an Atari one is of course not impossible...I'm sure there are still few of them hidden and waiting to be discovered... last example the TWO Atari cabinets (Space Ace) on this topic
