A quick post today, this past week a Sinistar shirt sold on ebay for $25. What a grabbing headline right? Well, this shirt was one of 25-30 that were made in a limited run for the original Sinistar development team while they were still at Williams. That’s a little better. The shirt was worn, had some light discoloration, but the important thing is the story that came along with it. (more…)

Surfing tonight to find a cool piece of coin-op arcade related information to post on the blog. Then I re-visited Peter Hirschberg’s website, which always sticks out in my mind as one of the better arcade collecting related designed websites. Peter works for AOL in VA and clearly has some money put into the video game collecting hobby.
He also has a desire to work in special effects in Hollywood. Here is a video from YouTube showing some amazing computer models of the classic arcade games Battlezone by Atari and Tron by Bally Midway. He does a flythrough of the details on these games, and it is pretty phenomenal if you have any familiarity with them.
