Winter Indianapolis USAmusements Auction March 2008

The USAmusements auction had a much better showing for games this March than it appeared to have in January. We had a number of classics, including two Ms. Pac-man’s and a Galaga, but for me the main attractions were a really nice looking Williams Moon Patrol, complete but not working and a Super Pac-man Cocktail. The Moon Patrol had a switcher in back and it looked like it had been hacked up, but I imagine all it needed was a power supply and it would be good to go. Non working, it went for $160. I didn’t stay to see the final bid on the Super Pac-man cocktail, it was in fair shape, bad player one controls and glass underlay was just so-so.

I continued to try out pinballs, trying to find one that I might like to buy. I am mostly interested in the newer pinballs, and there were a few. This auction saw a Twister, a Creature of the Black Lagoon and a Harley Davidson. All three of those were locked without freeplay. I did get to play Last Action Hero, which was just ok, and Dr. Who, which I like a lot. I found the shots fairly challenging, I just don’t connect with the artwork or the subject matter. So, the search continues.

I also got to play Terminator 2 for the first time with Robert, that is an awesome game. I don’t know what reply value would be like, but definitely a ton of fun.

Here is a photo gallery arcade games that were at the auction. (I am trying out the new media gallery feature in WordPress this month. You can view a larger image of the thumbnail by clicking on it with potentially a description, and once you are viewing the arcade game photo at medium size, you can click on that image for the full size. Enjoy.)
