Two of these were discovered in 2003 in
They were used by a Dutch toy store chain called 'Intertoys'.
Both of them have been found close to or from Amsterdam.
From Milan Polle: " Those
weren't used exclusively by the InterToys chain though, we had a 'Speelboom'
toystore in our small mall and it had the same stand outside. We played on
it a couple of times (MineStorm), until we found out that if you pressed
reset before the time ran out you didn't have to insert another coin and you
could play forever. This was in Nieuwegein, a city about 10KM under Utrecht. In Utrecht there was a toystore of the Bart Smit
chain and it had four of these lined up inside, playing different Vectrex
games, that was really cool. Never got to play those as I was always
together with my parents there :) I don't think you had to insert a coin in
those so they probably didn't have the coin box attached below the platform
the Vectrex was on. I guess these bubble stands
were pretty common in the Netherlands."
Well, at least they're more common
there than anywhere else in the world...
Four of them in a
row - *drool*
