    I doubt any money would change hands. Mike stole Scott's investment when he bought the molds under Gamegavel and moved them to not one, but two, new copmpanies.

    I'm sure Scott would accept the Stunt Pilot and shipping in lieu of that.
    Before you insult a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you insult him, you'll be a mile away, and have his shoes.

    ust got confirmation the buyers were refunded by Mike showing the email sent to the buyers and the refunds (it has their actual names on it so I dont want to pass it around) They were refunded yesterday (June 15th, 2016).

    I will confirm with the one guy that contacted me that purchased the Donkey Kong which I normally would not have done in the past (trusting what is told to me). The emails sent to the buyers was on June 8th with a promise to refund by that friday the 10th, which ended up being the 15th. But no big deal, I am relieved that the buyers know what they have and got their payment back. I hope the galaxian continues to hold up for the one buyer and they get lost of enjoyment out of it. If it breaks, maybe they can find me and I can repair it again

    At this time I am writing off the Frogger and Bandai Block out and moving on to better things and put all this behind me I will continue to watch Ebay to make sure the Frogger is not sold as it is repaired as well.

    I'm hoping this saga is done. Glad things have turned out OK for they buyers.

    In other news, there's some new JRI-RIGG hardware on the horizon, and its NOT vaporware

    I was on my Twitter as I am oft to do and I saw a @ReadRETRO link to the "Buy Willie a Samitch" campaign. Then I saw that Socal Mike had posted this on the campaign page along with a contribution. FYI, I am not complaining just reporting.

    For the record. Once it was brought to my attention these were refurbished I immediately emailed the buyers and have since issued them both refunds. I also told Willie I would pay him for them but he insisted that he didn't want the money and to just refund the buyers. Over the many years, Willie and I have given/traded many things back and forth and in addition, I've given him a platform to promote his Youtube channels and podcasts. When I give something to someone it is theirs to do whatever they please, no strings attached. Either way, this is an opportunity to make this right with Willie as I always intended once he contacted me privately about it.
    Because why should you settle for just an average merkin?

    ya I saw this to. Passive Agressive bullshit again. Yes we have given/traded many things back in forth with no strings attached. What he fails to understand or mention is the Minicades I did not want sold and were meant for research for the ColecoVisions podcast as he did not have them to play to talk about the when they were covered. I am pretty much done with all this now, the buyers money was refunded so everything is good now.

    The money from the GoFundMe campaign a Arcade USA viewer set up is going to Extra Life Charity.

    Retrogaming Roundup gave me the platform, not Mike. I recently learned he was working behind the scenes to get me out of Retro Magazine as well.

    If anyting I promoted his shit quite a bit. Put bumpers in my videos, used to provide names and addresses of places to sell the magazine (would pimp the shit out of Retro magazine to every game store I visited trying to have them sold there). Not to mention I promoted Gamegavel quite a bit. all for free, never expected to get anything for what I did, was just doing it to support a "friend". I remained neutral through everyting trying to show support, what did it get me? Getting booted to the curb when things got tough just because I am friends with UK and Scott (I never once shared anything Mike shared with me to anyone during the whole Retro VGS bullshit, I confronted him money times on stuff going on stating my concern but it fell on deaf ears).

    I have grown tired of the passive aggressive bullshit and am moving on.

    I think that was good old fashioned agressive-agressive.
