  1. Mine would have to be the stage 4 boss (magician) from Kungfu Master (arcade) I’ve been playing this game since’84; I consider myself a pretty good player... after all these years I still haven’t found a sure fire pattern to beat him. My best is four dragons on this game - all lives lost on stage 4 and the boss himself. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The Sega vectors are really underrated. Tac scan and Zektor are some of my favorites Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Not only the price comes from “Star wars” , but 2600 games released in ‘84 command a higher price tag Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. There is definitely a fine line not to cross. The example I used was just a query from a former owner who wanted to know if that was his former machine; I wanted to ask a question or two myself about the history of his machine. I'm "assuming" the owner was thinking I wanted to purchase his pin.
  5. Believe I first saw a Star Castle at our local roller rink; the Zayre we shopped at had one too. When I look back... I don't think I ever came across a mom and pop arcade that didn't have one. I really need to get my monitor fixed 😕 Out of all the heavy hitter of department stores from that era, Kmart and JCPenney are the two stores I never saw any games in. I seem to recall Kmart having those machines where you dispensed quarters in and get some trinket. The one with the mini NFL helmets was one I was highly invested in.
  6. Channel F boxes artistically remind me of that kids '70s program Electric Company.
  7. Wasn't that Nintendo (playing with power) tv commercial played heavily in '86? I mentioned on "finding out" from that article in Replay - think it coincided with talk of the new Nintendo VS. system arcade... I need to find that issue again. Now I do recall getting some of the "black box series" at our local Walmart and Kmart in '86. I'm thinking most of the NES owners did get their system in '87.
  8. Pretty cool. Had the Chuck Norris/Artillery Duel and Spikes' Peak/Ghost Manor Xonox double enders. The latter I have a lot of nostalgia for. Always wanted to get my hands on the Robin Hood and Sir Lancelot ones, don't ever recall even seeing those two on store shelves anywhere. Edit: came across this one
  9. For the most part, Ebay (WorldWide) for example... is really the only means of acquiring one since these weren't released in the North American market. Melody Chase was on Ebay few years ago. I was bidding on the auction when it was just pulled for some reason - sure he got an offer outside of Ebay 😕
  10. User Topdog has/had one I believe as well. To think about it... I haven't seen him around here lately...
  11. Stupus, did your items come from that auction win from Australia?
  12. Bill, there was a auction site in Australia that had Space Speller and Zero In (can't recall Chess was there - think that was loose) 5+ years ago listed. I was hoping it went unnoticed... you know how that went. Massive bidding frenzy...they didn't go cheap. There was a big collector here (was that you Stupus?) that took the boxed ones; I think Cmart was on this as well??? Apparently I was told Australia was a hotbed for Aquarius stuff at one time.
  13. Just wasn't sure if you're aware on pricing on the titles you mentioned
  14. Pretty confident to say you going to have to go way north on some of those titles - especially CIB. Melody Chase (which I'm after as well) might be close... I him-hawed on one CIB for 2 bills some years back - kinda regret it still. The few times I has seen the Extended Basic was in lots with the Aquarius model itself. Last one on Ebay was mangled up good.
