Information has been posted here

I believe this is the same location as it has been in for the past few years.

Hrm. I wish they could promise that there would be badass stuff but considering how it's been the last couple times I have attended...

Understandable. I usually just go to look and you never know when a killer deal might present itself.

Now's a really bad time for this and me, being unemployed and all. But I would LOVE to buy a 4 or 6 slot for my gaming basement I'm doing in the winter.

The thing that sucks about this auction

I will DEFINITELY be there for this, mark my words!!

Last year, I think it was tungfurue that got a kickass deal on the Neo 4 slot. There's at least one Neo every year. Last year had a Police 911 2 that was broken I would've LOVED!
They also had a broken glass Elvira and the Party Monsters pin.

Here's a visual tour of last year's games:

Edit: Damn! I can't find the video of last years, but I know someone did it.

Thanks for the link, Brad!!

Oh shit, that was today wasn't it?

I still have a cab that's out of commission without the monitor's video card... so I best not add anything until that's sorted out.

Yeah, I got the 4 slot last year...Sucks it's broke right now, I need to fix that thing!

Anyone have any pics or video of this year's auction. I'm too broke for me to go and tempt myself to buy shit I can't afford right now.

Terrible selection this year!
Not one machine I wanted to bid on.
There wasn't much to note, a KOF XI, the worst MVS 1-slot conversion I've ever seen , also the worst Ms. Pac-man I've ever seen...
Sad day, better luck next year, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Wow. Thanks for the info. I'm glad I didn't make the drive yesterday, sounds like a waste of time.

Here I was, feeling like if I didn't go that there would be good stuff. Why can't our arcade auctions be like West Coast arcade auctions? :(

Nothing really of note this year other than a pretty good shape Alien Vs. Predator that I would've bought had I had a job.

Lots of stuff this year, though - and there was even a working pinball machine!

Good deals on lots of crap. Next year will be in a new location as they stated that the space has been sold. My buddy picked up a good condition foosball table for $150 but, I didn't pick up anything. There were a couple of atomiswave machines, one with KofF and the other a shooting game. Both went for under $200. Plenty of conversion crap and a crapload of touchscreens.

Aria, we need to get together again and I need to finish looking at that chassis.

Anyone see how much that TX-Sector Pinball went for?
It needed some repairs, but I'm kinda kicking myself now for not bidding on it.

I wouldn't know.. I didn't hang around long enough for any of the bidding. Didn't have the patience this year.
Sounds like some fair deals on those Atomiswaves, though.

It was a decent game, but it was a gottlieb. :shudder: I'd be curious to know what that went for too. It played pretty good from the two games I played of it. What repairs did it need?

When I played it, it had a ball not register (likely a switch issue) and I saw it kick out another ball for some weird multiball thing that wasn't actually a multiball.

I believe it went for $450, but with 20% added on (buyers premium and tax) it was too much.
