At this time, I didn't check these three new games, so I don't know if they are working or not... But I plan to fix one Galaxian of course  lol
The other cab will be... A Pac Man cab'  roll eyes      

....grrrr... I don't know when I'll get time to transform it...

A lot of  amercian guys said : a gaming room without a Pac Mac is not a gaming room ... I agree...  roll eyes

Whaou !  Cheesy
A very nice Cab

I see there's not a balltop on the joystick.

I know a lot of Galaxian cab have a red or white balltop.
You have another version ? or it's a joystick replacement ?

The two control panels are really damaged  confused and of course they doesn't have the original balltop joytick.
In fact both panel include... a 4 ways joystick, not the original 2 ways !!!
As you'll see on the upcoming pictures, there are some work to do on both Galax' cabs...  confused

As the Galaxian #3 is not at my place now ( see the latest roadtrip here : http://www.dragonslairfans.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=116 ), I'll check these two 'untested' games...

Due to the HUGE amount of dust on it, I'm almost sure that it won't work... so let's see  confused

Hurrray... the Galaxian #1 is working... The image quality is medium, the monitor looks to work but a lot of monitor's pot' doesn't work  confused  but it's playable at least...



Ok, so let's start to remove the external dust  confused



... on these old cab', the sideart was directly painted on the side... no stickers ...



The Galaxian #2 doesn't work...  Sad

Anyway, let's remove parts in order to clean them...

Funny, on this Galaxian #2, there is a neon behind the marquee, not two electric bulbs like the Galaxian #1 :



... 1979 ... very old ladies ...  roll eyes



None of these two Galaxian has the original bezel ( with the galaxies drawn ), hopefully the Galaxian #3 has it  

Galaxian #2 :



Galaxian #1 :



Externally cleaned, G#2 :



Externally cleaned, G#1 :

The other cab will be... A Pac Man cab'  roll eyes     

Ugh ... thats a pity. Not too many usable Galaxian cabs around any longer, as most of them have been turned into Galagas. I dig the screened on Galaxian sideart, one of the nicest early cabs imho (and once it's gone, no way to recover the glory, as the vinyl repros available look nothing like it ...)

Dawn! A really old topic  Cool

Is there a thread for the SI2?

Yeps, have a look right here

I was young at the time, I was badly looking for a Pac Man, far more difficult to catch than the common Galaxian (I got three at that location & see them for sale very often). Nowadays, it looks like everyone can catch every games with a little patience and research (thank to the many bulk buys  Smiley), which is a good thing.
Anyway, I wouldn't do the same now tbh, but I have no regret, this 'new born' Pac Man gives us a lot of fun today!  Cool

Well, I don't  think this warehouse still includes these games inside, but I can give you details about the arcade operator/owner if you want to try your chance with him  Wink
