At the end of last year i got the opportunity to get my hands on a rare arcade...

- so, go now, make a cup of coffee, or tea, you could even grap a soft drink, because
this is going to be a hell of a roadtrip, through the English countryside... cough cough...
well, itīs not the most beautiful country, and winter doesn't make that better... not one bit!
but... lean back, put your legs up and make yourself comfortable.

120 Miles each way... give or take..


Started at 10:35... - reset tripcounter... CHECK


Thereīs no windmills here, so the best i can do is a crane.... :/


And of course, speed limits..


even worse!!!


I think this is the most beautiful old building on the trip - and some idiot with a spray can came through..


Amazone.co.uk HQ!


No pictures from where i picked it up, and no pictures from the trip home..
But finally, got it open - and this is.. yup, you guessed right...(the backdoor with the pcbīs mounted)


"close up"


The extra (daughter) pcb


Monitor, hardly used!!!!!!


Powerbrick and the famous knocker...


Right side...


Marquee...


Left side...


Bezel, newly printed by Archer..


CP, notice that Mylestar just put the QQ CP on top of the Q*bert CP! (and they did the same with the sideart!)


Dog Tag..


The top, with the written serial number... (11008)


Trip over!.. 251.8 miles driven (402,88 KM)

Onl

And finally - the pičce de résistance:

woho, michael, qubes has finally come home. i'm very happy for you, especially considering the fact that you had to postpone your first pickup appointment for this baby. now "all you need" is a q*bert to go next to it! Cheesy

do you have repro art for the control panel as well?

Congratulation! An awesome addition to your collection.
But with that *rare* game, you'll have the same problem then your *rare* factory 'Return Of The Jedi/cockpit'  : you'll need the original one too, in that case, simply Q*Bert  Wink

@Ully
Havent investigated further, but i think i have seen a topic on klov that covers this...

@Bruno
I know, i know! Really Really want a SW cockpit to go beside my ROTJ and a Q*bert to go beide my QQ..
But you never know, someday one of them or both of them might surface...

Exactly !

I would have a serious problem to not convert it back to Q*bert if that was mine....on one hand Qubes is even more rare then Q*bert, on the other....its not as epic as the original...tough call !

Nice report, and a great game to add to your collection.

I'm glad that you were able to collect it after all.

Yeah, but the thing is that i don't have the same remembrence of Q*bert than you have, of course it would be "easy" - just remove the QQ side art and cpo, unhook the daughter board and there you go... But, again, why "destroy" a genuine QQ???

Leave it as a QQ and put the multigame hack in for all three Q*Bert games until you can find a Q*Bert to put next to it!

Glad you finally picked it up! Glad I could be of help  Space Ace

Nice to see it in your home. Wink
If I were you, I wouldn't convert the arts back to Qbert, it is a real rare and unique cab.
Maybe you should use this kit to solve the problem:
