I prefare the blue as well.. mostly because they where blue around here when we had them around. Guess it depends on which color you grew up with.

Is it just the color that are different or are there more things that are not the same on the red and blues?

and why are there red and blues? (or should I already know this and just made myself a n00b? *smile*)

Looks very nice.. but isn't the cupboard on the small side? but very nice ways to store PCBs.

the more gamerooms I see, the more I need to get working on my own.

Would love to see more pictures as the games move in.

I'm going to Berlin next week, are there any good arcades there?

or is it like the rest of the world, so that I should be happy if I find just a game somewhere?

Do you have a thread where you could post pictures of your lastest and greatest findings that does not deserve a thread of it's own?

Like the package I picked up at the local post office today:



3 used marquees, none of them mint and I bought the Galaga one since I got the PCB a while back, the other 2 where just added bonus but as I opened the package I fell instantly in love with the Columns one, it's some kind of light reflecting tape (badly) glued to a piece of plastic. it's just lovely.

Please feel free to add more pictures to the thread of your latest great findings....

WTF?

Did you not see what the seller had? Why did you not end up with 10 or more games?

I'm dissapointed.. There where clearly more games to pick up...

you might want to get the Zelda games as well if you are a nintendo collector.

Yes,

This is very strange I do not belive it's an original Amidar, the PCB is Konami (made for Japan) but everything else screams bootleg, I don't mind it's still more original than the games I played as a kid, and there are the stern parts with Deutche marks, and no marquee.. all in all it's very semi-booleg to say the least.

I think it's licensed somehow, or maybe it's made to be since the PCB is Konami but the rest of the cab is not..

still worth the trip if you ask me  Space Ace  Smiley

And if you ever get tired of it, Please let me know and I'll make it up to you to sell it to me  Ghost

So looking at the game at home: (new pictures, not from the trip)

The sideart is lovely:


The Bezel have me wondering if this is some kind of bootleg, it's folded and looks like it should have been made for a "real" cabinet,


The cab itself is rather small, and designed to not have a marquee, *strange* I'm not sure what this modell is called but it reminds me of Missile command, etc


The cab is rather small, it's about 140 cm's high, it reaches up to my breasts/chest.


from below, it looks like this,


The worst damage on the game is on the left side where it's a huge gaping wound:

will try to fix that with some liquid wood or something.

The overlay have me wondering if it's a boot or what? it's a bit odd, it's strange, it's "ugly" and it's marked "Springer" - is that boot or is it licensed?


But on the not being a boot issue is the PCB, that is clearly marked with Konami and "for Japan", or is that just to make it more legal, is it still boot?

There should be diffrencies between Konami and Stern ROMS, but what have I got? - must be investigated!

Easy access with the front opened:


Having a look at the back, when the open access door in the back is opened opens the question, Why did someone make  a special adapter for this game for a deicated machine?


could it be that they had ready-made NSM cabbs, and Amidar was a little different? Is this a strange boot (from a regular Amidar where the bezel is not folded and has a marquee?) or is it just a strange small cabb made in germany from some strange licens?

No matter what, I love this small game that I have in my kitchen, even if it need some more TLC (Tender, Love and Care).

Funny thing, If I'd choosen to go this stretch in one way and not look back.. I've could have done



but with in range I could also have gone for: London, Paris, Zurich, Graz, Budapest, Stockholm, Oslo, Helsinki, Warszava or something like that - I must live in the middle of Europe!
