Dex,

       The game room looks awesome!!! Keep up the good work. I am very much looking forward to seeing it complete, I just have one problem.........Is that a lamp on top of the LAI Dragons lair/cobra command  :shock:

        I just sent you a e-mail my friend

        Talk to you soon
        Mike

lol Mike, yes that IS a lamp on the LAI DL/Cobra Command. Don't worry it's just there to add some light, it will be moved later tonight (just for you)

Man I can't wait to have it completed either, want to get the room all sorted before I bring in the other games.

E-mail received and I'll reply shortly bud.

Steve

Thanks for this new load of pictures  :)

Woow  :o  :arrow:



I've never heard about this  :o Here, in Europe, we had Walkman, and the Discman, and also the 'Minidisc'... but I've never seen a 'Walkman'  :P

Regarding the lightning :



I would put more light on the floor, because it looks a little bit 'too dark'.
You should try some fluorescent tube or neon behind the cabinet, just on the floor.

Anyway, it rocks  :spaceace:

Thanks Bruno.

I have a few more 'Watchman' TV's coming (pics will be added)

As for the lighting. There is lighting on the floor, just can't see it in the photo's (mainly the strobe light) and looks awesome.

I'm planning to add more Blacklight to the other side of the room and where Gauntlet it I'll add a coloured light (Yellow or Red or something)

I plan on putting some Neon type lights on the top/back of the cabs too.

Anyway, I'd say it's half done. But starting to take shape.

That's just something I printed at home (looks great too)

I am going to print some CPO's and Marquee's and have them around the room.

Regarding the Space Ace Blu-ray version...



I've done the French subtitle on it  8) Too bad I still don't have a Blu-ray player yet in order to see it  :oops:
