I'm glad the AnyCoinMechs got the recognition they deserved. Well done!

And thanks to the nine people who voted for my Janky Kong restoration. I'm very chuffed!

I didn't vote for all of these, but looking at that line-up its clear they all deserve this recognition. We had some great builds in 2015.

Congratulations to all!

Its great that I won the UCA for the restore work, I had a great time putting that cab back together. It'll always mean a lot to me. That being said, Raiden deserves a UCA more than I do.

Malenko, I'm confused. Your TMNT resto wasn't in the same category as Raiden.


Oh... I see...

Incorrect. And eat a butt for implying that Chance is in the same ballpark as my Tay Tay!

They both produce quality works and the "true artists" don't understand their near-universal adulation. What's the difference?  ;D

But yeah, Taylor is a bit nicer to look at.

This is why there is an after action thread and we lambaste the moderation of the event and then refuse to do it ourselves the next year.  :soapbox:  UCA you might want to go ahead and start that thread, pretty sure there will be some pretty healthy mud slinging and I am eager to both defend and attack you.  I suggest even taking some of this thread and splitting it off into that discussion, no reason to take away from the winners.  Otherwise the awards themselves may lose more of their luster.


The reality is we don't have to like each other to ensure quality builds are recognized here.


I actually think these builds are pretty well done.

Raiden deserves a UCA more than I do.

Thanks for the kind words! It was nice to see that cab finally complete. Your TMNT is great! One of the few actual "cabinets" I have nostalgia for (not many arcades around where I grew up, but a Showbiz Pizza birthday party cemented TMNT in my brain forever).

Congrats to all the winners! Lots of excellent projects... hopefully I will have my pinball re-theme done in time for the 2016 competition. (1979 Williams Flash is becoming a 1979 Williams.... Mega Man!)
Completed projects: Pac bartop (Plug & Play), 30th Anniversary Pac cab (MAME), Point Blank (PS1), Centipede (arcade hardware- light restore), VS. Super Mario Bros (arcade hardware- light restore) Tetris Cocktail (SNES), Arcade Classics upright (60-in-1, then MAME), Multi-Raiden (arcade hardware). Pac Man vs.(Gamecube),

Working on: Pinball Re-theme, Homebrew arcade arena shooter
