Hello all

First time poster here in Los Angeles, CA. I have looked at the top 100 list here for a long time, but never looked at the forum until recently. For some reason I always thought Pinside was more based in Europe, so was suprised to see so many people from the US. I was steered here from an RGP thread a few weeks ago when Colorado Game Exchange had the TRON LE's for sale (one of which I got), and have been enjoying reading here since. I have been on RGP for years, and I see some familiar names here. Nice fresh group of pin entheusiasts, which is good to see the hobby still growing. I've been collecting for about 20 years, so hopefully I can start giving some input back to the community.

Thanks for reading!

Welcome to Pinside, James! It's always nice to have someone like yourself with a lot of knowledge join our ranks. Man, I sure wish I started collecting 20 years ago. I imagine the games were a bit cheaper back then.

#12 3 years ago

Greetings James and welcome aboard. Sweet collection. I hope I still have my sanity after 20 years.

greetings, you will be assimilated.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and kind words about my collection, I just added some gameroom pics in my profile to share for anyone interested. All the games listed are set up for play, except for BoP which is currently undergoing restoration. Not pictured is the seperate shop area (or surgical suite as I call it) for service and teardown, which keeps the gameroom free of clutter (other than games everywhere). I'll post some pics of that later. Enjoy!

Curious, about you mega collection guys: are they all set up and playing?

If so, are they spread out in multiple rooms or all in a dedicated space?

James is the man! I had the fortune of picking up my TOTAN from him and it is a beautiful example. Thanks for letting me play in your arcade too, I needed oxygen once I made it back home...It was simply like a dream.

Nimblepin you crack my ass up man!

#36 3 years ago

Just seen the pictures...and you are now the greatest man of earth.

#37 3 years ago

Hi Kevin, good to see you here. How's that TOTAN treating you?

Wow, I'm humbled by all the kind words. Glad everyone likes the pics! The room was purpose built as a gameroom 2 years ago by tearing down my detatched 2 car garage and rebuilding an 800 sq ft stand alone structure. It is a little over capacity now, but that seems to happen no matter what size gameroom one has. There is a seperate electrical sub panel running the room, all the AC outlets are run from a bank of wall switches so no more turning on one game at a time, all the recessed lighting are on dimmers, there is a seperate restroom for guests, and it has it's own heating and cooling. Most of the pins are connected to external home theatre powered subwoofers placed underneath the games, the carpet is commercial grade that floureces when the blacklights are on to give that arcade feel, and there are regular speakers placed throughout the room for backround music.

James, TOTAN is doing great and gets lots of play from both my wife and I. You have an open invitation to play my WOZ when it's released....unless you finally ordered one of those too:) You have one heck of a game room and I was so impressed with the conditions of all your titles.
Plus, how quickly you could move 6 pins to get that TOTAN out..LOL

#41 3 years ago

WOW!!! your collection is worth more than my house. Welcome to Pinside.

#42 3 years ago
