Looks like a fun event but I won’t attent. Got another job 1.5 years ago and have been busy with another hobby. Still lurking here from time to time and still own 8 cabinets (which i haven’t touched in years)..

I haven't posted in ages and it seems laserdisc cabs / interest is a bit thin on the ground so thought I'd post this up. This cab will probably be familiar with some of you  Wink

Towards the end of last year I saw this cab on ebay UK. Any mention of DL or SA cabs gets my interest - they rarely come up for sale, are overpriced and usually not working so when I saw this I was intrigued.
At first I didn't know what the cab was and I thought it was a bit weird. Defintely not cheap either, but, it was a working original Space Ace cabinet!

After much time looking at the pictures, finding out as much information as I could about this cab (including on this very forum of course!) it really started to grow on me... yes its not a classic style DL cabinet, but is a proper dedicated machine and very rare too. It has the scoreboard, the cool marquee shape (although totaly different art and upside down!) and really looks like a laserdisc "style" cab - colourful and cartoony. Not all LD cabs are in this style of course but I do like the ones that are.

I had to import the machine from the Isle of Man in the UK. I'm not sure how it ended up there but I knew this was imported from Australia by Finny here on the forum and was part of his amazing Don Bluth collection. I had no idea the collection was split up but I am glad to be this cab's current custodian.

Thankfully the machine still worked when it arrived, it does have some swelling and sadly the side art has been trimmed but actually the machine is in pretty good condition. Unfortunately the LD player seems to be on its last legs - it works but is slow and doesn't like to eject. It had a hitech card installed but I was keen on getting Dexter and Merlin running in it so I could play DL, SA and DL2 on the same machine. I still intend on having a go at cleaning up the player's internals though (along with my 4 non-working LDV players too).

Fast forward to now and I've just recently got the Dexter/Merlin combo working. It's so nice to be able to play the other games and switch them from the control panel. Here's a (pretty bad) photo of it in my lineup sharing centre stage with Astron Belt/Galaxy Ranger and others.

I think i'm now definitely a "laser" guy

Pretty sure yes.

I saw that Billy Mitchell is coming, I guess his tariffs have been lowered A LOT ever since it was proven that he cheated with his Donkey Kong “world record” by using MAME. Following that ALL his records have been deleted so....why is he coming anyway ?

Al Lowe is pretty cool though...loved the Leasure Suit Larry series.

I would have gone if they’d got some Atari guy like Joe Decuir or Nolan Bushnell.
I don’t have anything with the Amiga even though it was designed by some of the guys who also did the 2600 and Atari 800....
