OK I have Waaaaaaay to much arcade gear.... Cabinets (new and used) - PCB's (new and used) - Components like joysticks, PSU's, Harnesses ect (new and used)
I plan to get it all ready then host it say on a Saturday sometime soon (30th) :unsure maybe 23rd it all depends on how many are interested in looking... I will run the poll for a few days and decide then....
I will also be taking offers for some large ticket items if they dont sell at the marked prices....

Cash and Eftpos good to.....

Tell me what you guys think?

Address is 3353 Pacific Highway Springwood where GameDude is...

OK UPDATE... I have decided I may run it a few Saturdays for a Month or so till its all gone.... I will probably take heaps of photos and add them for interstate ppl that way if you see something you like you can ask me :D
Its going to be like an Arcade Graveyard... heaps of stuff spread out over 200sq meters or more....

Its all hi res pics so your stuffed if you have an old PC or dialup ha ha ....

Interstate buyers have a look at the pics and ask questions if you like....
Freight I would prefer if you organise your own as getting quotes all over the place will be very time consuming...

nice idea

does garage sale mean we can rockup at your door 2 hours before your allocated time and then haggle you for cheap stuff

thats what the sods do over here :realmad:

14th October 2010, 08:21 AM
An even better idea to spread it out over a couple weekends. No excuses for not having a look now :)

Not this weekend... its taken me 5 days to move all the cabs into the building and there is still PCB's and parts...
I plan to have a few things setup and maybe even do repairs as we go......
Prices will reflect current condition....
I will post alot of photos that way interstate guys can get a look at what I have....

Hey Dorian, I am realy going to struggle to get down there :( Any chance you have any black MCA's in the lot? If so, any chance you might be able to put them aside for me?

I also got the chance to have peek when I picked up a cab on Saturday. I walked in, picked my jaw up off the ground and thought HOLY SH!T..Game Dude nows thats an understatement! Cabs and PCB's galore.

Don't miss out guys

I will try to keep an eye out for it...
I did spend a large amount of two years collecting this stuff... I did have plans for it all but its not practical and I only want to keep choice items. I will however be putting it all up for sale and if I get a good offer on my keepers I will let them go to...
Plus I will never have the time to restore them all lol.... 100+ cabs at 2~4weeks each = no life ha ha...

Been a while since Ive been on here, but heard about the sale from a post Elvis made on OCAU. Going to be on the coast this weekend and been looking for a new cab, might have to try and get up to brissy to have a look. Just out of curiosity, do you have any Arcade City cabs i think they are called? You have them listed as megalo city cabs?(the white plastic sit downs). Also, is there going to be a way to be able to organise freight? Just that I live back in cairns now and if I see a cab I want, might be a bit difficult to organise shipping and everything to get it back up there before I leave on the sunday.

elvis
28th October 2010, 10:57 AM
Speaking entirely for myself, I use these guys for freight on cabs:

Local: http://www.minimovers.com.au/

Interstate: http://www.borderexpress.com.au/

I think there's a few threads around here with other recommendations.

OK a few things... Please dont ask if the cabinets work... clearly I havnt tested them all.... If I did I would want a price that reflects that... there are a few that do work and are complete and a few listed on the arcade site.... as I test more I will list as such.....
I would prefer if you make an offer based on the pictures and I will go from there...

Man it's tempting to get an old TMNT cab for a dual TMNT/Simpsons setup for the kids.

I've spent way too much on gaming this quarter, and promised the wife to back off a bit. But my self control is waning...
