...and ... got the package today, hurray  :-*  :arrow:



...but... why buying an other marquee? The cabinet has already one on picture?

Yes! But on the current marquee, Pac Man is ill  :o :'( :'( :'( See by yourself  :arrow:

Ok, so let's unpack ... very well packed by the way  8) :arrow:

congrats bruno, nice machine! believe it or not, i've already touched it with my own hands. how come?

i saw THIS pac-mania together with another one standing in a german warehouse only 50 kilometers from where i live. unfortunately, it had already been sold to the guy you eventually bought it from. before he came to pick the machines up (there were around 150 cabinets altogether, most of them universal cabs), i offered him 100 euros if he sold the pac-mania to me right away, but he said he was going to sell it on ebay and that he would get 600 - 700 euros for it. well, he didn't  ;) the first one was sold for around 200 euros, the second one (which is now yours) sold for XXX - i have no idea ;D i should have offered him 200 euros instead of 100, then YOU and I would both have a pac-mania at home. DAMN!!!  >:(
how do i know that yours is the one i saw a couple of months ago? because of the "sick pac-man", of course! :ghost:

there was one thing i got from that warehouse sale, however: a sitdown pole position cockpit (which is still in storage in the warehouse). hopefully i'll be able to pick that one up soon!

all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

Hey, thanks for that story about my sick Pacmania  ;) I really love to know such histories  8)
Each time I'm doing a road trip, I'm asking the sellers : where this game came from and what is the story behind the cabinet?

...because it's not only a matter of games  ;)

Once again, thanks for the story  ;) ...here's for you   :arrow:

i wonder what does the marquee look like from the back?? is there anyway you can cut out the messy bit on pac and somehow put something underneath the hole and then fill it back in and smooth it out, and do a better job of it than the previous guy?
