Scotty. I want this but need to sell Flinty first. I have a buyer lined up just need to make sure he still wants it. Can you gimme 24 hours to see if I can proceed. Obviously if it drags on and you’ve got people in line then that’s life 😬.

Emperor Ming Awaits! :D

Flash Gordon is a great game.....with VERY short ball times :eek:

I think the vinyl looks good, most cabs faded to pink years ago so a red one is nice to see!

Glwys! :thumbs:

FG quite a sought after title. Gumtree this baby. Much wider pool of buyers including FG nuts
Or try and keep it in the hobby.....?

Appreciate you have no control of what the next guy does, but nice to try, which I think is what’s happening! :cool:

The guy that bought my Funhouse recently was new to the site. Despite all the site regulars, and inviting offers from day one, my Funhouse only received one other offer.

Noone on here was interested in my wpt - that sold rapidly to a first timer on Gumtree who had never heard of this site

Noone on here was interested in my Vector - that sold rapidly to someone on Gumtree who had never heard of this site

Totally get u, thanks for the advice, i normally pop it up here first, then if no joy i stick them on ebay, tbh never brought or sold on Gumtree which is weird as i love buying and selling bits!

So good news i have 4 interested parties so should get flash a new home, im going to have a shuffle today and add better pics plus all the spares etc for it

Now i need to decide on tmnt as ill have space!

Gordon's alive!!!

In my dreams this has a Pinsound fitted with a good mix of tracks from Queen and Howard Blake's trippy score o_O
This is the ultimate theme game for me. My absolute favourite film apart from Brazil. But the lack of Queen soundtrack kills it for me, however good it is to play.

There is a movie remake in the works directed by Julius Avery. So there is a chance! All my fingers and toes crossed!

Whilst the film is great, as a kid growing up in the 70s, I loved watching the black and white series made in the 30s and 40s with Buster Crabbe as Flash, Jean Rogers as Dale Arden, and Charles Middleton as Ming the Merciless. It was really obvious the spaceships were hung on bits of string with a firework strapped to the back to simulate the rocket, but they were still brilliant. (...now goes off to see if any DVDs are available...) :)

Oh, and GLWS! :thumbs:

Yes I used to run downstairs and watch it in the mornings. I seem to recall it was on at around 6am or something crazy early.You can get the series on eBay. Impossible to buy new.

Looks like there were 3 series, each was condensed into a feature film:
Series 1 (1936) Flash Gordon, Rocketship
Series 2 (1938) Flash Gordon: The Deadly Ray from Mars
Series 3 (1940) Flash Gordon: The Purple Death from Outer Space

Good news is that Rocketship is available included with Amazon Prime video.
Also just looked on EBay (thanks Rob) and ordered the complete 3 series - all 39 episodes on 6 DVDs for £7.99

Apologies to OP for going a bit off-topic.
