Nice Roadtrip - since you already have that many games and since it became so quiet here, I thought this was it with roadtrips. But im happy I was wrong :-)

Hasta la vista, baby!

Awesome! Fantastic road trip!

I love how you wrote it 8)

Very cool that Terminator!

do the lights still work in the cabinet? they flash when you get hit? they make the game even more beautiful.

'Must have' games list long time filled indeed, but still open for exciting stuff, and of course up for road trips from time to time, like the good old days  ;D

Amazing that you have the full size endoskeleton!😍😍
I promised to myself that I would own a life size T800 one day, after seeing it at the Universal Studio early 2000. The ultimate prop  :-*

Magnifique :)

Yes, everything works as expected BUT...
The monitor must be degaussed (I'll have to check if there is a degauss button inside the cabinet)
The right gun is not as smooth as the left one, even after calibration. Probably a tired potentiometer? I did't find how to source new one so far... some hints maybe?

great story.

Maybe I should write more roadtrip stories, too.

Searching Zaccaria Stuff: Fiiter Marquee, Zaxxon CPO, JumpBug CPO or CPO Repro
next project: assemble Zaccaria Cocktail.

Definitively yes! Because ...

What a nice song to listen on ...You Tube?! ...Damn it!  :ghost: :lol:

Yeah, an imposing piece! it has become a -if not THE- centerpiece in the room  :-*

As much as I love reading such stories on forum?s, there is an downside with them too:

What if the forum get?s and database update and for some reason, older content get?s lost. Or look at Jamma+, from one day to another, the whole website has gone, all data lost.
Sure, you can lose your videos on YT too ( if they copyright strike you x times or some viewers report you, they put your videos offline ).

Which just brings me to the idea, let?s put in on both platform?s, forum and yt  ;D

Great to see another road trip!
And big bulky game - I?m sure it?s heavy as f***
Played this a EuroCade with SuperUlly, and we managed not to beat the game using a ton of credits  :lol:

T2 - The Road Trip part II...NO FATE!
« Reply #11 on: May 12, 2024, 02:52:11 PM »


As a huge pop/geek culture fan, I am interested in all kinds of events such Comic Con.
Here's the guests list for the May 2024 Comic Con Brussels :



The Lord Of The Rings casting... impressive!... but wait?



Edward Furlong aka John Connor himself!  :o

I'm an heroic fantasy fans but even more of science fiction lover... I need to go there for John Connor!
I can't miss this opportunity. I want to meet him ... and bring him some T2 items  ;)
Let's buy all kind of different markers... just want to be sure to find one that can write on glass  :arrow:



Because yes, I want Edward to sign the T2 arcade bezel. Fragile and cumbersome : it's not going to be easy to carry. Let's prepare it for this journey  :arrow:





But more important than the T2 Arcade game, THIS is the thing I want him to sign  8)  :arrow:



Impossible to bring a life size T800 there, so I'll take a part of its base  :arrow:



Why not take as well the T2 marquee ::)  :arrow:



Really dirty! It needs to be cleaned :



This original marquee is sheet of thin of plastic that can be bended, but due to its age and the damage of the light heat, it has become too rigid. It no longer bends, it... breaks.... Holy Shit :evil:
I should have been more careful when manipulating. It got damaged it when I tried to slip it into the packaging  >:(
I used transparent adhesive tape to fix it on the back.



Let's see how it looks now :



Not too bad, I could live with it. I may get a reproduction... but I have an idea regarding this DAMAGED marquee...  ::)

I have never been to this convention. According to the reports of the previous editions, it's crowded, and particularly difficult to access the guests. Access to the venue in the heart of Brussels city centre is also not easy.
For all these reasons, an early departure is essential to the success of my mission  :)

Saturday 11th of May 2024... wake up @ 5h00am

Car is ready for a new adventure...





For my professional road tripper' statistics  :lol:  :arrow:





2h20min & 192 km  later... here's I am, inside the Tours & Taxis Park Lane parking... almost all alone in this huuuuge parking :ghost:





So it's 7h56 now (car clock is still on winter time), the public entrance is 10h00. So I have two hours to wait... :ghost: :ghost: :ghost:
Maybe I should have bought special 'early entrance' tickets. These tickets would have allowed you to enter an hour earlier (9h00am)
But I'm not alone...



I take the opportunity to walk around the place.









This is it! doors are open to public... it must something like 10h10am... Edward is fully available for me  :spaceace:



He said it was super cool to have brought this piece of arcade machine.
He told me he finished that game.



Next, the DAMAGED marquee... I asked him to "encourage me", even with this broken marquee  ;D



We keep that stuff on the table... these markers need a couple of minute to dry...



Last but not least, the T800 base...



For that item, I didn't ask him to write anything special.
So he put his signature and then gave it back to me.
30 seconds later, he spontaneously asks me to give him back the object to add something to it ?  :arrow:



NO FATE   :spaceace: :spaceace: :spaceace:

What super nice guy, and very kind. It was a pleasure to meet him. He took his time chatting with me and doing the autographs.  :-*



Next mission for me, to bring all these item safely into my car  :)
Now that all that stuff is secure in my car, and can go back into the expo and enjoy the place serenely.

It's now approx. 10h45 and the queues to access guests start to grow...







See the schedule & guests :



I also thought I could meet Sean Astin. I got with me the Goonies blu-ray just in case... but my schedule was too short.... Sean photobooth was 12h30, and Edward was 13h00. Due to the massive people, I was affraid to miss Edward (TOP PRIORITY CIBLE), by beeing stucked in the queue for Sean.... it's gonne be for the next time.

So It's almost 13:00...next to come... Edward!



Hell yes... he recognized the 'arcade guy' from this morning  8)



My day is complete!  :-* I can go home peacefully
I admit that I have been quite stressed for several days about the organisation of this meeting.



@home  :arrow:



(for my stats : 389 km)

T2 stuff inside in my game room are now blessed by John Connor  ;D :-*





Mission completed! ... almost completed I should say. I'll of course frame the picture with him, and also find an elegant solution to protect the signatures on the items...

Without knowing it, someone filmed my meeting with Edward :P . He kindly offered to broadcast it, in case I lost my smartphone and therefore the evidence of this meet and greet. How cool is that, huh?  8) Here it is  :arrow:

Well, there was an other guy obviously  :) He came with a T2 control panel, but also ... with a T2 pinball playfield  :P  :arrow:
