sounds like a plan. Although I dont think an opportunity like this will show up again anytime soon.

The whole lot was bought for 1800 by some german buyer. I asked the seller to see if the buyer was interested in parting ways with a few cabs individually. hope something can still be worked out.

You'll probably find it was Stefan Lietz from World of Arcade and they'll be showing up on ebay.de one of these days :)

Damn......unless I know the German buyer.....


Indeed, next time post but leave the URL's behind ;)


I'm glad they've been bought either way. Always better than dumped and now I don't have the feeling that I have to save them....

Don't think there's much chance on a next time. I've never seen a deal like that before. Actually, the number of true classic cabs I've seen for sale in The Netherlands the last year was very close to zero. The last three cabs I bought came from Germany.

That's still an awesome deal, can't understand why the seller waited a bit longer for better offers....?

I think Gravitone is right about the buyer, but there are one or two more possibilities in Germany. At least I know Stefan has plenty of space to store them.....

Wooww... maybe an happy end finally  ::) :P Like I said previously... I'm looking for a Nintendo blue cab/Popeye  ;) :-*

Try to be as fast as possible. No email. Phone call only ...and pick up the games asap  :P ;) Fingers crossed  8)

Good luck  :-*

If the pac-man is in good condition and if i could find a way to get them here (maybe combined with a visit at burno's lair  ::) ::) ::)) I would be in!

Guess I'm too late (again) but what I'm looking for the most now is a Nintendo cab. Doesn't matter what it is, I like Popeye as much as DK (seriously!).
However I guess they're spoken for. (But Bruno already has two, so he should be last on the list  ;) ;) ;) ;) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D)

If not, cab maybe completely empty. I've got the boards and a monitor is no problem either. Artwork and CP would be nice though...

My goal is to have one Nintendo with a horizontal monitor and another with a vertical monitor.

Else, a Pac is always sweet of course !! I've got a Galaxian that's restored completely but I could help to work on them, restore and sell, whatever.
