From a family photo album…

Sega Turbo with a StarWars cockpit behind



Forget ET’s glowing finger, checkout the Space Harrier behind. 



The only other photos had some fruites in and no more videos. I've been told they were taken in Southsea.

ET ride is cool, never saw that here. The space harrier is the cockpit moving one, very cool, nice to see one from an old picture in the wild.

Those kids really lucked-out when they got taken in by Mr Drummond!

The arcade machine I remember most from a film is seeing Outrun in the scene in "Big" (Tom Hanks film) where he first finds the Zoltar machine.

Sure, a friend of us Kike from Universo Arcade was the person in charge to install a set of arcade machines inside the Bandai Namco Stand in the Barcelona Games World, he asked me to take my 2 Pac-Man, 1 original and 1 repro + Galaga original there, we had a great time on the show making a combo with 9 arcade machines in the RetroBarcelona Area and also 3 in the Namco Stand... also we had the great oportunity to honour Mr Iwatani a special Member of Honour of our Cultural Asociation Arcade Vintage.

it was not sure that we could see him on the venue but now I'm sorry I should have informed all of you that he was coming to Barcelona

Special thanks to our forum member Ricky2001 to restore completely in 10 days the Pac-Man from a Galaxian cabinet.

Time line of the history of Namco


Our stand in RetroBarcelona a part of Barcelona Games World





I will never ever clean again my Pac-Man CPO and Joystick LOL














like a visit to good LOL


An space invaders design logo in our association...for the Pac-Man creator...perfect trolling ShockedEmbarrassed thanks he liked and told us he is a very good friend from Taito Boss.


Amazing moment!


Special Thanks to ArcadeHacker on the right of the pic making the pictures on the Mr Iwatani encounter.


Top technical advise from ArcadeHacker in our stand :D

Cribbed from Facebook.  Torquay, Devon Arcade - Joyland - Carey Parade.  Circa 1982.

This one is of great importance to me as this was my second home back in 1982 and the machines below are a mixture of memory and the pictures.  Absolutely fabulous to see a picture of an old haunt from back in the day.

Machines in sight Amidar (possibly Konami), Stern Bezerk, King Kong (actually Crazy Kong Alca), the corner of Dig Dug (with the baseball cap kid playing).  In the distance - Alca Bomber, Sega Astro Blaster, Williams Defender, Penny Falls and some classic fruties like Eachway Nudger.




Here's the outside of the place, used to have a load of shops at the side including the locally famous Piggies fast food place.

Glad to say the place is still an arcade, I went back to it last year. It has merged into next door and is know as Golden Palms. Unfortunately the insides are just like any other with redemption machines and pushers with the odd big video simulator.
