  1. Nothing starts with N and ends with G. prove me wrong
  2. With all these great games coming out lately, I would hate to be ....something something something
  3. A six year old boy was at the courtroom yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy had a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge awarded the custody to his aunt in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beats him just like his parents and he refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he lived with the grand parents, the boy cried that they also beat him Now learning that violence was apparently a way of life for the family, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After conferring with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to Collingwood football club, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.
  4. Ask the EM guys, prices on those have not seen the increases that electronic games have had but people will generally hold onto things for too long anyway. I know many older generation people who bought up land, but then refuse to sell it, only to move it on when they were too old to enjoy the windfall, or to find the only people buying were investment companies that would buy in instalments over 10 years
  5. What I hate is geoblocking I hear about a good movie or TV show, only to find it is not available in Australia and about censorship, if an episode has ideas which are now politically uncorrect, that episode disappears I love my DVDs
  6. my Star Trek coin slot if it was 40 c, it would read "2 x 20c" the game might have been 40c for the first couple of months and then gone down to 20c once all the talking games came out
  7. my biggest worry about swaping is who is responsible if something gets broken?
  8. Art is only expensive because we deem it to be "cool" There have been many artists that have toiled in obscurity, universities churn them out by the hundreds
  9. or the pay-by-installments model Arcade1Up Star Wars Pinball - Chrisco Hamper Australia Ltd
  10. Sorry, I cannot help, I was just told that they (Star Wars themed) were in stock
  11. Ok, I have heard you dont like the prices that machines are going for OK, Costco has you guys covered ARCADE1Up Marvel Digital Pinball | Costco Australia
  12. ? I think it is a great time to be in the hobby more manufacturers mean more games , if people want to get caught up on FOMO or "I must have an LE" then that is their problem I like the fact there are people out there who are making mods and/or parts to keep the games running. on some 40 year old games you can buy every part that makes the game new
  13. no numbers, everyone is equal and welcome 🙂
  14. Every time I have mentioned my pinball collection with my parents, i am meet with ridicule. A stupid hobby to waste money on. (My step-father owns a few classic Mercedes, but that is OK) Until this week, the amusement auctions that have been going on, must have been mentioned on the ABC, and suddenly I am a shrewd investor
  15. I suppose it is fitting that it looks like it has borrowed some inspiration from Flash Gordon; upper playfield is similar, the lane on the right is reminiscent of the Woodbeast lane
  16. I decided to sell my vacuum cleaner today It was just collecting dust
  17. Far out, those are big boards pulled them out, removed the connector board and cleaned all the contacts with alcohol, put it back together and worked properly (actually I think it had more sounds than it did before?) Thank You
  18. Bono and The Edge walk into a bar The barman looks at them and says "oh no, not U2 again!"
  19. Hey guys I fired up my Star wars upright yesterday after sitting for 5 years game came on OK, but the sound was intermitted and not all the sounds were there Any simple things I should try? (remember I am a pinball guy, not knowledgeable about video games) Thanks Pete
  20. Ummm, he passed away a few months ago
  21. Felt it in Ballarat I get daily rumblings from a gold mine in the area, but this was different, it was not until I was messaged by my son who live in Melbourne eastern suburbs that I knew it was natural
  22. realizing that i will never have a shed big enough to hold all my games and the time to keep them all running, at least half of my collection will go in the next couple of years there will be some out the door first , and some i will hold onto for my grandson, but my son only wants to have two or three
