    These guys have a World cup soccer. I've been trying to get them to send me high res pictures. At first they were all cool. Then they never sent me the pics. Then they refuse to answer emails or phone calls? I've got cash. What's wrong with these folks? I'm confused.

    Ah man, don't even get me started on them. Long story short I wanted to buy something from them too I called them made a time to meet them at their shop to look at a machine. I drove from Ottawa to Kingston. Had contact with them before I left to let them know I was on my way, they said they would be there. I got there and no one was there and they stopped answering their phone. So I made the drive for nothing and I confirmed it with them when I was on my way too. DON'T DEAL WITH THEM. You've been warned!

    Have these guys closed up shop ? I can't understand how you can operate a business in that manner and still pay rent and make a living.

    Because there are lots of people out there looking for their first machine. Small community of collectors, sure, but there's that whole other group of people that buys one machine and stops there, or are just getting into this and don't know any better. We've all probably overpaid for something at one point or another, and lots of people have horror stories about deals gone south.

    Yeah, they suck.
    Don't even bother, no matter how tempting the pin and price.
