Title: Another lazy road trip
Post by: Alpha1 on January 28, 2011, 05:45:04 PM
This one is in the USA though. So I can't drive to get it :-)

I am having it shipped over via airfreight for a very good price.

I present to you, a HUO Super Zaxxon sitting at the sellers house back in 2007!

This is now at a good friends house, waiting to be picked up by my shipper.

Behold.

Wow, that's so nice and crisp   :o 8) ! Is that one of those "breakfast cereal contest winner" machines?

Super Zaxxon is such a difficult game.  There's still a dedicated Super Zaxxon at a local donut shop that has the bottom part of the cabinet sawed off  :'(  I oughtta take pictures of that some time.

wow that's a good point, was SZ part of that cereal content? If so it may very well be. It came from an old ladies house that said they've had it since '84

IIRC, I think it was Pengo, Star Trek and Super Zaxxon.

EDIT: Found a pic of the box.  Wow they gave away 500 arcade games? :o
