Well spotted Barry  Smiley

Here's the full sequence in this video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3qopPovFos

Note that this is not the original cabinet used in that sequence... the one you see in the sequence is something built for the movie  Cool

Watch all the sequence ... only good 80's things in it : Dr Pepper, Arcade, Death Race, Michael J. Fox, ...  Grin Tongue

What a great find Bruno !!! Now that is one rare beast !

Does it work at all ?

And although the comic effect is great, I too would like to see some real pics of the machine.

About Dr.Pepper: drank it a couple of times in the US because I noticed it and thought of you Bruno. Not bad, not bad at all !  Grin Grin Grin

More pictures, right after unloading the cockpit :



As you can see, except dust, adhesive tape remains & 'scratched' stickers, its overall condition is not too bad..







This game was to be called "Star Wars"  Tongue



The 'Exidy' yoke ...



Let's open the back for a quick 'behind the scene' view  arrow



One of the earliest color TV monitor, remember we are in 1979 (but released in 1980) ...



You can spot the boards, on top and left of the monitor...



On TV top...



...and TV left :



Almost 100000 games played? Impressive  Cool  arrow

Well, I won't have time to check more on that one until that black baby will be in my game room, so ... what to do with this now?

My first idea was to put the cockpit with some of huge Galaxian Theaters 'in hibernation' parts here  arrow



Arghh! That room is already full  Shocked

OK, I'll have to let that cockpit in the Freddy's garage! I can tell you he's NOT happy..and I can understand him   roll eyes
But after the promise I won't let it too long (I already said that regarding the Galaxian Theater parts  Roll Eyes), he's ok  Tongue
So let's protect the cockpit against cats or other aggressors...





That should be enough for a couple of months... Tongue
