    Well, it's a great collection. Still, am I the only person who wants to slap him for saying "Seega" and "Meega Drive"?! GAH! :livid:

    GENIUS lol

    seriously though this collection makes me realise how teeeeenie Tiny my 600+ collection is :sorrow:

    :nightmare: I just trawled through this thread to see if I could see anything from VanilaThunder or Bobak and I can't see anything... so to barmino I say.... what the fcuk dude? I just checked and he's spammed every thread on the board I could see so I'm guessing someone pissed him off... wonderful!

    @3:21 He has a life-size Jar Jar Binks. His entire collection fails on that point alone.

    While I think he falls under "collecting just to collect" which I don't really dig, he seems to know which games are actually good and which ones aren't. He's got heaps of imports, and his arcade room doesn't have a single bad game in it. True, they are western cabs, but I'll let that slide.

    I would like a reference on the "63 Space Harrier hydrolic cabs" statement though. That seems awfully low.

    Of course most of the comments on his video on you-tube are "you must be rich". He insists he is not and most of his collection was built utilizing good contacts abroad. No matter how many or how good of contacts you have, there is money right there! Though, so what if he was rich, because if I was I know I would be hitting up eBay big time despite how much I normally hate having to resort to using eBay.

    I'm dissapointed he didnt have a Killer instinct cabinet :(
    why does he pronounce it seeega? I admit I did that when I was 7-8 yrs old; a few short years later, I played sonic 1. Heard the opening "sega" short jingle and relised the error of my pronunciation ways.

    [UPDATE]
    I just saw someone put how its the way people say sega is australia is "seeega" thats crazy lol

    I call bull shit on that too. I know of 3 in the UK alone. There was one in Alton Towers theme park and two in Blackpool. So that's 3 which I saw and used but that doesn't mean there are only 3 in the UK and even if it did that would only leave 60 for the rest of the world. I can see Japan having more than 60 alone.

    I'm sure it was just a statement to make his cab seem more valuable than it really is. That, or he's really uneducated about the arcade market and just takes the word of joe-anybody who says something to him.

    He absolutely has alot of money. The room with all his saturn games was originally a custom built home theater room with THX certified sound. Also his home theater equipment he tossed into that spare room like it was junk had some expensive items such as that very nice screen. Personally I would have kept the room as a home theater but I guess he'd rather have a game room with a ton of 13 inch crts.

    Also those Star Wars full size figures run about a $1,000 each. They're also very common the ones he had.

    Doubtful. There isn't even a guy out there with every Atari 2600 game ever made.
