'andys-arcade' started off on eBay in 1997 so check out what others think of the service i have provided over the years. I started collecting video arcade games back in 1997, and always had an interest to learn just how these things work. I still maintain a large personal collection and webpages dedicated to them. I am passionate about old games, making sure they don't get forgotten to the mists of time...
In 2001 I went on the well-respected and classic-orientated 'Randy Fromm Arcade School' course held at 'Funspot' in Weirs Beach NH, USA, Randy Fromm is a wonder technician who has been running coin-operated videogame repair courses since the late 70's. Since then, i have visited the USA over 30 times visiting videogame friends, attending videogame auctions, hiscore events, purchasing machines, going on roadtrips to operator warehouses and shipping machines by the container full to and from the USA and elsewhere. I have a very large network of contacts all over the USA and do take on single machine shipments to order if you are looking for something you just can't fnd here in Europe easily.
I used to write for the Antique Amusement Magazine as writer/editor of the 'Videodrome' section covering old video arcade games, the magazine has sadly gone into hibernation, but i did write 22 issues over 2 years. I am a semi-active member on several arcade collecting forums including Arcade Otaku and UKVAC. I have been involved with UKVAC since 1997 and have been a pillar of the collective since then, everyone knows me.
I have worked with numerous TV and radio companies in the past, on prime time terrestrial channels as well as smaller independant cable channels. I have also been interviewed in Newspapers and magazines, mainstream and independants, foreign and domestic alike for lots of things videogame related.
Large-scale Public Exhibitions is also something i have a lot of experience in. In 2001 i helped to create the 'Game On' Exhibition on the cultural significance of Video games which was exhibiting at the Barbican Art Gallery in central London in the summer of 2002. I sourced and supplied all of the video arcade machines used in the exhibition, as well as assembling other interactive exhibits and original home console hardware. The showed toured the world (and is still going today) where i travelled with it providing expertise in setup and planning, having travelled to 10 or so different countries on 30+ occasions during this time.
I continue to provide technical consultancy services to museums and art galleries around the world which means i can be out of the country from time to time, you will always see a note on the homepage if this is the case.
Being a collector myself, i treat my customers and goods in the same way that i would expect to be treated. I'm not out to rob you of your money, i want to see games be enjoyed, used, shared and played in the manner for which they were originally designed.
