End up talking to myself, huh ?

Oh well.

I know that RayB isn't planning on it.  Menace ? GGKoul ? Sinner ? EdgeDamage ? Other SW Ontarians ?

Are you guys gonna leave me alone with those scary CGCC folks ? I like b1bug and all, but getting them together after an Ikea breakfast is kinda frightening ... and I want to buy a candy cab, so you know they're gonna mock me.

Cheers.

I guess the answer was no (RayB didn't wake up in time) ... weird auction with crap going for way too much ( I was outbid on two cabinets that should have gone for less that $50) and decent stuff going relatively cheap.

I ended up with:

- Die Hard (soon to be a JAMMA gun game cabinet)
- Virtua Tennis 2 (GD-ROM) in a 33" showcase
- Golden Tee 2K in a nice clean Dynamo

Met lots of the CGCC guys and they're not as a scary as they make out on the board.

Next auction is October 1.

Cheers.

I think the topic should be renamed and put to Oct 1st!  ;D

Im trying to get that day off work. I get paid the day before... I should have some spending cash and devirginizing myself and getting an arcade.

I just need to get that day off!

EDIT: At least a couple of first timers (from other boards, as well as Scott84) going, so may be a good time to get a feel for the offerings/process if you haven't been yet.

Not like this needs a bump, being second from the top ... but, who is going to the 05NOV auction ?

Doesn't look like I'll be buying anything (have irons in the fire for a few cabinets), but I've said that before ... and ended up with two more machines ... something is horribly wrong with me ...

Anyone ? Bueller ?

I should be there... But prices will probably be higher this auction because of the Christmas bidders.

Stopped by the auction this morning to pick up my Tron cabinet and met RayB and menace. Talked to Scott84 for a bit.

Wasn't looking to buy, so didn't even get a bidding card ... ended up agreeing to buy AtariJeff's BattleShark.

Left before I bought anything else.

Well, something may have come up so I may not make it to the auction -- hopefully, I'll be driving down the QEW to pick up my all-time-must-have-cabinet ... may stop in on the way back to show it off and smile smugly while the CGCC guys tell me that I overpaid ...

OK arcade fans ... it's the day before ... anybody going ?  I'm thinking menace may be there ... eccs19 perhaps ... RayB ? Scott84? Stewie ?

I'll be there for sure as I have some new toys to pick up (both deals out of the blue yesterday) and some things to hand off to people. Definitely won't be buying anything at the auction unless there is a decent NeoGeo cart or board lot.

Instead of my trademark Toronto Fire t-shirt, I will be wearing a Halloween (the movie) jacket.

Cheers.

Didn't see Stewie, but did see Scott84 and got to meet eccs19. The Kid was nowhere to be seen and, as I understand it (I left early on ... took my pin and my Pac cab and split), the prices were quite a bit lower as a result.

Didn't but anything at the auction, but did well at the CGCC parking lot exchange:

Next one is March 4th.

OK ... it's almost auction time (well, two weeks, but still).

Once again I won't be buying a cabinet (unless something cool shows up in the parking lot ... or maybe more $50 Arkanoids), but will be there at least to deliver some CPOs for the folks further south and further west of me.

Anybody else ? Bueller ?

I hear eccs19 will be there and has a Bust A Move in his future.

Cheers.

It was sitting on my testbench while I was putting some CPOs aside for the auction ... figured you might like to borrow it for a break from the beat-em-ups.

No other reason ...

Scott84: I've got a Major Title 2 (JAMMA golf game using joystick and buttons, no TB) board that you can borrow for a while if you want. 


That would be cool thanks, but why are you offering this out of the blue? LOL...

 8)

It was sitting on my testbench while I was putting some CPOs aside for the auction ... figured you might like to borrow it for a break from the beat-em-ups.

No other reason ...

Cheers.

Thanks Alot, i would love to try it.

I wish i had something to lend you...
But ive only been arcade collecting since November..
Im still on my way  8)

No worries ... more stuff to play means less stuff gets fixed, so you're actually doing me a favour !?!

See you next week.

I've got them already lined up (nothing major, old boards for old monitors and stuff like that), auction is just a convenient meeting place.

I actually don't think I have anything left to trade after these ... guess I need to hoarde some more parts.

I guess I'll wear my normal attire for non-winter auctions ... blue Toronto Fire Rescue t-shirt. Hope to see you.

Finally met GGKoul ... and left him in the sweathouse that is building 2 today.

Lots of cheap, crappy cabinets (including a cute little TAITO curve-cab that I really wanted, but didn't want to stay for).

Loads of hardware cabinets that would have made good MAME projects ... I expect they will go for $25 per.

Next auction is 26AUG2006 -- see you there.

Are you planning on attending, Cheffo?  I'm in the areaish, and wouldn't mind checking out an auction.  I've never been to one before.  I also would like to get my hands on a CandyCab at some point, but do they tend to have them all that often?  :|

Sorry for the delayed response ... I only just checked back on this thread.

Yes, I plan on being there.

There are candies from time-to-time, but never more than two at an auction and they often seem to be shilled up in price.

I'll probably be wearing either a Toronto Fire t-shirt or maybe my BYOAC shirt.

Hope to see you there.

Anyone else ?

Cheers

Interesting auction ... LOTS of interesting stuff and junk ... 170 items total.

They had items sitting in the parking lot and in a truck behind Building 2.

Congrats to RayB who I think got the best find (I left early on and didn't see if he got it) ... a Centipede mini.

EDIT: Yes, RayB got the Centipede cabaret for $50 ... nice score.

Cheers.

Just got back ... saw menace, RayB, monkeybug and grauwulf and a bunch of the other CGCC folks.

Lots of big stuff (ST Voyager environmental, Confidental Mission environmental, Police 911), the usual assortment of 33" Big Buck Hunter showcases and not many great bargains (at least that I saw ... I left 50 items in) unless you wanted one of the bazillion fighters. I just missed getting a Lost World for $225 because my hand went up just as the auctioneer said 'Sold'. Stopped bidding on a nice GT2K at $175 and it ended up going for $200.

There was a decent Toobin' there, but it hadn't come up when I left and I know a couple of folks who wereinterested, so it don't expect a bargain.

Davester and vidiot from CGCC were there, so I would expect to see a price list posted in the next day or so.

Cheers

OK ... old topic and nobody posts here anymore ....

For more info on these auctions, including next date, etc, visit CGCC (or PM me):

http://www.cgcc.ca/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6487

I strongly encourage anybody in SW Ontario interested in Coin-Op stuff to check the boards at CGCC -- at any auction, the best deals are usually in the CGCC parking lot beside Starburst (did we hit 10 cabinets changing hands this time).

At last count, my "parking lot" cabs outnumber my "Starburst" cabs 8 to 5, and I have done well at the auctions -- MVS-2-25, Asteroids, Die Hard (now a JAMMA gun cabinet), VT2 and Jamma Countertop.

If there is an auction (next on 25AUG2007), then I will likely be there at some point. I am 6'3, typically with a shaved head, goatee and glasses, often seen wearing a BYOAC, GameRoom Magazine or Toronto Fire T-shirt; or, in cold weather, my Halloween (the movie) jacket. Come up and say hi.

 ;)

Probably my last bump for this thread ... partly because this may be the last Starburst auction (or not ... that rumour has been going on for about a year) and partly because nobody here ever shows up anymore.

I won't be there, unless by fluke, as I have a gala fundraiser the night before and the twins' birthday the day of. And I am officially, totally, completely and utterly out of room (I'm one cabinet past capacity until such time as I finish office construction and free up that wall in the game room).
