because they will just burn cabs rather than sell them to collectors that slag them off , i have come across this my self and the number of ops i deal with that refuse to sell to collectors is scary ,

i have been to ops who would and have smashed up gear rather than dealy with winey collecotrs


im not a op , nore am i saying that all collectors are winey , but someone is upseting ther Op's

You've got to remember the dynamic of the relationship between collector and operator. 

The bottom line is ops owe us nothing. Any opportunities to raid or buy stuff should be regarded as a bonus, not a right.

Must admit, if I was an op and had collectors asking reams of questions and asking for photos of this, that, and the other, I'd get pretty pissed off, too! LOL

I just had so many good deals with ops. Most of all my Toaplans, Taitos, Capcom and Sega pcbs were dirt cheap from operators.

Just those CAVEs are dam expensive since NO op in Europe or US has them.
