Lets face it guys... they look great. In the 80's somewhere between design and production somebody screwed things up. As you all know from Japanese culture it is not done to criticize your co-worker so  the design guys let it go. Check the Japanese internet the story must be hidden somewhere...... maybe in the New Mexico dessert together with the ET cartridges.  ;D

So I guess I'm on my own huh.....well whatever, it won't change my opinion  ;D

It's like putting LEDs in a pinball. You can argue until the end of the world, it will turn any nice pinball into a cold fridge. AND you are hurting the originality of the machine. Period.

I will never like it.

or putting LEDs behind a marquee! totally different light color and marquee color as well, not original, but people do it anyway ...  :P

just curious, andré, what do you have to say when you see the japanese donkey kong jr. flyer? looks slightly familiar to me 8)

Ully should prep two cabs original style so we can compare when they stand next to each other  :D

interesting flyer. As you can see the logo of Donkey Jr is a bit different. It's Jr and not Junior

I think it's fantastic that you have gone to some much trouble to restore theses beautiful cabs
And I think it's funky that you have swapped the colours over and I don't think it matters at all
As Nintendo did kits for all games so you would have found them in any colour
Well done
Can't wait to see them next to space firebird and radar scope cabs
Do you have pics of them ?

Awesome
It's funny they used the same bezel for both games
I have a space firebird cocktail and a radar scope kit and it's funny how Nintendo used the same cocktail joy mech from the cocktails in the uprights too

What buttons have you got on those machines ?
I think they just used anything as I've seen loads of different types
