Bump!!

#3 9 months ago

I've never seen one of these, very cool, bump.

#4 9 months ago

I used to have a cocktail Tempest years ago. Now I have the upright, love the side art on that game.

I do love Atari cocktails of this era though as they are unlike any other cocktail where you can adjust the legs to barstool height. Same could be done on your tempest. Here is how my Centipede resides.

Yea, I have it set low so my two little kids and get down on some classic gaming

It's such a cool game for sure, I'm just trying to move it along to someone that is looking for their Grail game.

Price seems very fair.

Here's info on mine...

One on KLOV in ID (not mine) for quite a bit less. Not dissing OP, but just sharing in case someone wants one but doesn’t have quite the cheese for this nice example

Everything is cheaper in Idaho bump.

The brutal reality is that color vector stuff is hard to find, hard to fix, and hard to keep working, unless you babysit the machine(s). Helps keep prices high. I've owned nearly every single one at some point and speak from 18 years experience fixing them.

#11 9 months ago

Why or WHYYYYYY did I not buy that Space Duel cocktail 4 years ago for $600 (with a capped, original monitor).

I haven't broke into video game collecting, but this would be a good place to start if it was local.
So much class in Atari classics..

I'm mostly in the vid side of things, but only cocktail cabinet projects I have are Atari Football and Joust. I'm really mehhh on most cocktail cabinets, but the Tempest (and Space Duel) were REALLY well done and interesting to look at.

No offense taken.

Just a reminder though, this is a freshly gone through board set with extra ROMs that are user selectable.

Completely gone through wg6100 crt with all of the bad design features fixed.

New Atari big blue cap.

Plays great, looks great!

I'm also open to pin trade offers or other vector based vids.

How about a Vectrex for trade? Comes with a 101 games (vector based) multi-cart and a light pen.

Bump price reduction.

#18 9 months ago

Tempest used to be my favorite game. Loved whipping that spinner around. I have a multicade with Tempest on it...it's not the same without a spinner. If it weren't for location x 2 (location of the machine now and where I would locate it once I got it) I would be sending you a PM.
Anyhow, bump for great game.

Man I absolutely love this game; and a cocktail version no less! Beautiful example

Thanks!

Seems it's all crickets in here for trying to sell/trade it though.

Guess I'll go and try and beat the yellow waves

I literally just drove past you yesterday, but no room in the car unfortunately. While I have no doubt your price is justified, it’s just way too much for me right now. But man I know
Somebody will love this game -

#22 9 months ago

If I could I would

One of my favorite arcades. Plus like others say, it's one of the better looking cocktails

#23 9 months ago

I'd buy it but then my wife would kill me for not buying her a Galaga cocktail machine all these years!

1 week later
#24 9 months ago

Bump. Any offers??

#25 9 months ago

I had a Space Duel cocktail, love those color vectors!

#26 9 months ago

Man i wish i had the cash....me likey.

#27 9 months ago

I had a really nice one of these about 15 years ago. Probably my biggest regret in getting rid of game.

Great game! Something about color vectors are just stunning!

Does the cocktail Tempest have a larger screen than the upright?

#30 9 months ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

No, it's the same exact size- which is why it's a rare cabinet. Most cocktails use smaller crts.

This is another cool thing about the Atari cabarets too.

#32 9 months ago

Most cabaret and cocktail games have a smaller monitor. This Tempest along with Space Duel is the exception. Not sure what you meant here.

#33 9 months ago

I just want to sell this thing. Anyone near me want to make a decent offer?!?

#34 9 months ago

Bump?

#35 9 months ago

Price reduced!

#36 9 months ago

Stop it! You're killing me! Thank goodness you're 9 hours away bump

#37 9 months ago

Ugh I may have to make the drive I’m afraid...someone pllllllzzzzzzz buy it now.

#39 9 months ago

Messages like these make me

Lol..

this is a steal

It is! So crazy no one has really moved on it yet. I'm just needing the space otherwise it would be staying.

#41 9 months ago

That’s an insult offer. You can’t even buy a fully working color vector monitor for $600 these days.

#42 9 months ago
Quoted from snyper2099:

The seller asked for offers. If you don’t like an offer made via PM politely decline via PM rather than posting the private message and calling it an insult. Best of luck with the sale.

Quoted from twenty84:

I did indeed ask for offers- decent offers was the exact language used.

If the person messaged me with a little backstory as to why he or she feels that $600 is a decent offer for a nice condition tempest cocktail- I would be all ears and I would not have used there message as an attachment for all to see.

I guess what it comes down to is- my version of polite is probably grossly different than yours.

I consider myself polite and I generally go out of my way to help everyone I can at the cost of my own time and sometimes money.

My opinion was and still is that the message was rude.

Thanks.

#44 9 months ago

Bump for cool game.

I'm surprised no one grabbed this yet. I have an Asteroids cocktail game with the multiboard in it and love it. If I wasn't 10 hours away this would probably be sitting next to my Asteroids cocktail by now. I used to have a Space Duel cocktail that I regret selling.

This board set isn't even a "multi-board" that you can purchase. This is a modded board set from Andrew over on Klov.

The breakout game that's in the ROM set is a game that clay programmed!

#46 9 months ago

I just use Pinside now to watch this thread in hopes someone wants that awesome tempest.

It is the case, however, that this is a pinball forum... maybe you'd have more luck on KLOV?

#47 9 months ago

Last bump/price reduction and then it's going in the garage.

$1100...

Anyone want to nab a tempest cocktail????
