I've just found this French documentary about the making of the games Dragon's Lair & Space Ace.
I don't remember having seen some parts/footage of it before (correct me if I'm wrong).
Note the Dragon's Lair version of the cabinet played by the kid at then end of the video. Proto version wow !



Welcome at the Don Bluth Productions... back in 83 or 84' :

I know I've seen this prototype before somewhere, maybe in another article??..  I'll check my stuff.. 


But to answer your question, I bet it was a "quick throw toghether" machine for testing, and might have been dismantled??

Ahh, I wish I didnt see this footage again, because the cel and Pan Background that is in the last photo(youTube screen, is the exact one I sold a few year ago, I am really gutted I sold it, I needed the at the time...well such is life.

Regarding the prototype Dragons lair Cabinet, It has the original Wire wrapped board and player, It is in Storage, And is owned by Rick Dyer, I talk to Rick from time to time, he told me that the machine still works, he turned it on a a couple of years ago, he told me he will contact me when he gets a chance to go to his place of storage, I am still trying to prize it from him, I have been trying for years now, I am sure he will give in..... and just sell it to me...here is hoping.
