Tomcat?
Impossible, the only Tomcat that exists is a PCB in a SW upright cab in Jed Margolin's house......well he WAS thinking of selling it. But Tom Cat is nothing more then a flying demo over a set of dots on the screen. Not Russian to me....

I think it's Raid Over Moscow ! (O wait, that's an Atari 8-bit game Cheesy)

Did you buy it from the Arcadebarn ? I remember I saw one there....not working regretfully....

Road trip starts



The weather is pretty bad Sad


After nearly 4 hours of driving we arrive at the sellers house. I park outside the garage.


The seller arrives... We open the garage door and....



Holy shit it is in fabulous condition and all original! The seller gives me an additional LD player, Firefox LD and Firefox PCB set.
He tells me he got the game from an arcade sometime around 1988. It has been in his dads garage for 20 years after the laserdisc player broke!

I load the game up:




The game is loaded up and I have the spares, I bid the seller farewell and leave to go home


What's the in the sky? It looks like the second Firefox prototype is after me...


So we decide to hide out at Burger King Cheesy



I finally arrive home. Total road trip 405 miles (600ish? km?)

I'll take some more pictures once I have unloaded the game from my car. I was tired so left the game in there overnight.

The game is safe and sound now at my parents place. I didn't have time to take pictures but I opened her up and the machine is complete. All the serial numbers appear to match Cheesy

Well, Done Oli


When I bought my Dragon's Lair back in 1990 the seller had a working Firefox as well, I wanted to buy it but I didn't have the cash.. it won't take you long to get her working again.

Love the film, Love the game!!!
