I really wish I could get ahold of the people that bought these so I can send them the pictures showig them in my possession and the repairs that were made.

    He also sold of the coleco Alien Attack I gave him, but that one was ok as I did "give" that one to him and it was fine. It was for his collection so this one is a mute point.

    The Bandai Blockout I paid for and sent to him to mess around with and he tried to sell it also but still has it.

    Now that I have confronted him on all this, he has gone silent once again..... I am soooooo pisssed off. been stewing all afternoon. I am now following his ebay account ready to pounce. I only wish I caught the galaxian and donkey kong to have stopped them from being sold off. I feel bad for the buyers who purchased them. I have made posts on Atariage and also on Colecovisions podcast facebook, arcade usa twitter and such on all this hopeful that these people get the word so they get their money back.

    What the hell happened to Mike anyway, went from a nice all around guy to money grubbing scammer. I am to the mindset that Gamegavel needs to go away and RETRO magazine, he needs to get all the way out of the community.

    I am one guy that stood by him, now that he is on my bad side. look out.....

    I only wish I listened to you UK and Scott earlier! Focus is a dumbass, a trusting dumbass that got taken for a ride.

    Can you tell I am pissed! Just wait until the next Colecovisions, I will have to do a lot of editing to remove the cussing. I am also inclined to make a video about this situation.

    Trying to cool off this afternoon though, going to go play some Just Cause 3 and destroy some shit!
    I recommend do the video. This needs to get out.

    Quite calm for a rant but came out better than shouting and swearing at a webcam.

    Story is hitting the CUPodcast.

    Willie, I hope something good comes out of this. Hoping you get a lot of new subs man, you deserve it. I also hope the buyers can be found and informed of what condition those games were on the inside. I own a couple myself (a pac-man and a donkey kong) that are kinda patched together. My donkey kong has a corner broken off the motherboard, I am using wire to complete the trace. It works, just hoping it doesnt fail.

    I have been contacted by the guy who bought the Donkey Kong. He is converting it into a mini Mame Arcade machine He offered to send me something but I said no I was more concerned he got is money back. He has not been refunded yet (its now almost going on two weeks since I confronted Mike about all this and he assured me he was going to refund the money back to the people and send me proof. Well it did not happen, I imagine now that I made the video he feels he is due that money now even though those machines were not his to sell.

    After the Chameleon fiasco he is ruined, selling off stuff to recoupe. If he is so desperate for cash I know Scott would gladly buy that Stunt Pilot arcade game he has. maybe he should sell is own shit and not others.

    Oh well, I am a movin on

    I'm glad one of the buyers was found, and glad he is reworking it into something. Still scummy that Mike didn't refund like he said he would. Was the buyer ticked off when he saw the internal condition?

    He actually was pretty good about it. The Donkey Kong was not as bad as the Galaxian. I think the DK had three jumpers on it, whereas the Galaxian had several due to the motherboard being missing at the top.
