Quoted from ZNET:

The arcade games currently in my gameroom are all electromechanicals. They are as follows:
1) Kasco Ninja Gun (late 1970s). One minute, unlimited shots, to kill ninja warriors, including holographic ninjas during daylight and at sunset.
2) Sega Gun Fight (1969/70). Mannequin gunfighter puppets and cactus collapse when shot.
3) Sega Monster Gun (1972). I have 2 Youtube videos posted of this fun nylon pellet projectile shooter game. Only two examples of this game are known to exist. Here's a link:
» YouTube video
4) Keeney Deluxe Texas Leaguer (1940s)
5) Chicago Coin Basketball Champ (1947). For sale, by the way. I have the cabinet stencils.
6) Genco Two Player "Super" Basketball (1954)

Quoted from Strange:

Been watching your video. I'm very impressed. Incredible game space... Kudos~

there are many many great arcades on this thread, keep the hobby alive. very awesome !

#460 4 years ago
Quoted from PACMAN:

The plan is to open a museum but we'll see. I've had a few groups come through from Cub Scouts, noisy teenagers and old farts like us It was hard at first seeing the games getting beat up by kids but I knew they wouldn't stay perfect forever so I just took a deep breath and watched their faces light up in amazement. At least I know they'll never get cigarette burns again.

better person than I am. I would get sick watching them get beat up!

New arcade addition this month is a nice NBA Jam TE. The cabinet was split apart pretty bad but nothing some wood glue and clamps couldn't fix.

Never bothered to post them here. Just sold both the Super SF2T and NBA Jam TE. Next month I have another original Big Blue cabinet I will be restoring. I have street fighter 2 HF, Super SF2, and Super SF2T boards I can put in it. When I get it done I will let you know if you are interested.

Quoted from j_m_:

what filter are you running on your cell phone when taking photos? "authentic 1970s haze"?
otherwise, nice environmental SW!

fingerprints haze. thanks for kind words, I have some rare games but had to put some 90s games in the arcade for my kids, they couldn't care less about quantum, varkon, major havoc. got them that "hazy" big blue and an nba jam to go with nba fastbreak pin.

#798 4 years ago
Quoted from Strange:

Beautiful! The only SF2 cab to me is a Capcom Big Blue. Nice username as well

thanks its got the multi kit, plays many Capcom games. robotron is my favorite game of all time, owner of a nos robotron cocktail:







#810 4 years ago
Quoted from j_m_:

the only problem with the EDOT is that we're alot bigger today than we were when it came out (both in height and girth
it makes squeezing into that cabinet a bit tougher

hey i squeeze in and out of my starwars cockpit. edot is more stand-up ish.

Congrats and welcome to the Slither club *hopefully*

I have had over 150 arcade games, I have never seen or had the chance to by a slither. very very rare game! very small club!

#833 4 years ago
Quoted from PACMAN:

Well after mangling my back playing paintball with my Boy Scout troop 2 months ago I'm finally back to restoring games.
Here's one that's not too common... Atari Fast Freddie.

very rare and underrated game. game scrolls in the opposite direction from l/s of cab to r/s. nice job wow!

#853 4 years ago
Quoted from Agent57:

No, sorry...I dig that game way too much, I've owned it for many years.

very nice wow. love the attract mode on wow, really nice to have in the arcade.

#855 4 years ago
Quoted from japespin:

Scramble, Star Wars, Daytona USA, Outrun, Cruisin' World, and Track & Field. That said, I'm about to post Cruisin' World up on Craigslist. Daytona might be on its way out already as well.


scramble has that nice colorful "porn bezel" . I do so much driving in real life commuting, I cant play driving games!!

#859 4 years ago
Quoted from japespin:

You mean this part of the bezel? lol Yeah, that bezel artwork never made sense to me. Still one of my favorite arcade shooters from back in the day...

This image got 2 "unsafe" tags and has been hidden automatically, as per your settings. un-hideIMG_5405.jpg 2

pinside hid the image ....too funny. they had one of those in Disney until I pointed it out one day, they removed the porn bezel!!

#864 4 years ago
Quoted from labnip:

Speaking of which....
Look who finally arrived today

#879 4 years ago
Quoted from japespin:

Love that cabaret row. What is that on the far right?

exidy Ireland crush roller, I got new in box from Canada. same game as make trax. takes pence coin instead of quarters.

#880 4 years ago
Quoted from SilverUnicorn:

I can't tell but what's really strange is that the screen image looks almost identical to the Make Trax next to it.

very good eye! yes basically same as make trax. got both new old stock. they were from time travel warehouse in Canada.

Quoted from pinballsmith:

I've been finalizing trade details to finally bring a Slither into the collection. It's complete and solid, but the sides need to be repainted badly. I worked an Elevator Action (brown Taito cab conversion) into the mix as well. It's going to be a good Christmas this year.

pinball smith, get that slither very rare and decent gameplay!

#956 3 years ago
Quoted from j_m_:

question for all arcade owners. I've got an NOS joust marquee which has what appears to be a protective masking tape on both sides.
seeing as this is now 30+ years old, I don't want to ruin the marquee, so what would be the best solvent to safely remove the masking tape (and its adhesive) from the marquee?

heat, hair dryer on lowest heat till it starts to peel off and carefully. I wouldn't recommend chemical, it will eat the ink on the back side.

#958 3 years ago
Quoted from j_m_:

I'll try the hair dryer to remove the masking tape, but that's just going to leave a sticky mess. what about all of that? goo gone? (not goof off which is nasty stuff and very aggressive)

its so old I cant see it leaving a lot of film. I had many nos cpos, marquees and bezels and had no issues.

#971 3 years ago
Quoted from joemagiera:

Turkey Shoot. Probably not the type of shooting game you're looking for, but it's a great game. Fun to play and funny too.
Joe (joemagiera at ameritech dot net)

joe you selling this?

here's a cellphone walk-thru of 'the arcade' in brighton, mi (owner: mike magyari) that I shot on jan 02, 2016
» YouTube video

I sold mike many of those games, miss them all!

#1052 3 years ago
Quoted from Cam:

I sold 10 vids years ago and only have a few left:
NHL Open Ice 2 on 2 Challenge
Galaga cocktail (holds the beer while we play pins)
3 X Rush the Rock Alcatraz Edition.
I'm thinking about adding a few more... Is there a site on the web for current arcade values? Kinda like the boston pinball site?
I'm working on a deal for a few right now but I don't know values other than what random internet for sale adds tell me and the eXidy's Unofficial Video Arcade Price Guide...

exidy site add 50 percent to those prices. many games are priced so low especially hard to get ones.

#1600 2 years ago
Quoted from MustangPaul:

I finally got one of MACH 3 games working, I swapped the power board that went out with one from my other game and inserted the thumb drive that they sent me with the proper game on it. Fired up the game, watched the install bar on the monitor move till it was completely downloaded and bang the game started. I have some fine tuning to do because a disc error screen comes up about every 7 seconds and the target boxes you shoot are sometimes in the wrong place but hey IT WORKS!! In the demo mode you get to play the game all the way through, almost 15 minutes but even with the errors it was GREAT to play again after almost 30 years. While I was waiting for the new game code to come I replaced the plastic coin slots and painted the housings gold and put red and blue clear buttons in and lit them up. Now all I have to do is get the 5v on the other power board fixed and in my other MACH 3, download the game OS into the other Dexter board, again do some fine tuning and then I'll have two working MACH 3's, one in the basement gameroom and one in the garage/shop/gameroom II. The first picture is of one of the Dexter boards and the rest are of the game in the garage.

gonna be doing the same to mine this weekend thanks for sharing!

Quoted from Mrbill:

sides are nice, but I am not a fan of the front art.
I assume you used original kit marquee, bezel and cp overlay. If not, why did you not expand the art to the edges? The dedicated cab did not have the black bars. artwork went to the edge. you need to find the right joystick for it. Also, going to all that effort, you need to find the light blue 8 way.

basically because i have a life.
i had somebody do this custom work and i am happy with the way it came out. i had a budget and stuck to it.
i have the original light blue joystick i have to install it when i have time.
i purchased this as a stargate cab conversion not a kit.
its a spare game in my garage and not meant for a museum.
never tell anybody their kids are ugly or have crooked teeth.

Quoted from Mrbill:

If you don't want to hear that your kids are ugly, don't show pics of them.. Sometimes people will tell you the truth!
Just wanted to point out, if your going to go repo art, might as well get them to do it right. Here is a pic of the dedicated MM I had. As you can see all art goes to the edges with no black areas. The cab style is robotron. I can understand not finding the right cab, but the guy printing the repos should try to do it right.

the art on my mystic marathon is original from a williams kit that was installed on a frigging stargate cab. only the side art and kick panel art was made new. i have had more rare games than many people. i was one of the biggest collectors on klov as pacman can attest to this.i have owned them all. hundreds and hundreds. new old stock games new old stock kits all of the rare ones all of the common ones.
the lines are from the factory conversion kit. the game you are showing is a dedicated one and the art is for that game. again mine was a conversion. the bezel, cpo and marquee are from a factory williams kit. thats the way they come.
not a big deal homie.

#1991 1 year ago
Quoted from Captain-Flint:

wow... what a difference.

thats why i did custom art. i didnt want to build a replica of a factory mystic marathon wasnt really crazy about the stenciled side art.

#1996 1 year ago
Quoted from Mrbill:

That explains it. You used original kit art for cp, bezel and marquee and did not repo it. Far better choice than full repo. I had a mm in stargate and one in a joust over the years. I lent out my nos side are so it could get repoed. I only commented on it as if it was a full repo, the the guy who did it should have paid better attention to the repos. I am eventually going to put mystic marathon into a spare duramold.
Well, I too have owned hundreds of games over the years. I was buying them in bulk back in the 90’s and sold tons of games. I did buy out 2 arcades.. Still have about 200 vids and pins. I really need to work to get it down to about 125, but I would never go so far as to say I have owned them all. I did own that dedicated mystic marathon, but i eventually ran out of room and started selling off some games.

when you own so many it becomes a job instead of a hobby. unless you are like pacman and have oompah loompahs it seems helping you out.

#2002 1 year ago

you see what pacman does to his games is his business. he took alot of heat on klov for buying games and tossing out pissed out cabs for repros. i think i remember the big bruhaha over that reactor cab on klov. there are some games that are really nice and light patina i would keep like that all day. many games are really rough and he makes them like new again. someday i hope pacman opens his museum and ill be one of the first to visit. it would be like going back to the 80’s in a time machine. little known fact that pacman created alot of repro art and parts and shares them with the community. he was one of the first people to do this. stand up person always helped me whenever i had a question or was looking for a part or art of some kind. i know he made no money whatsoever on any of my transactions i mean does he really need 50 dollars for a piece of art? the time he spent making it himself or on labor isnt worth the 50.00.
