Yes! I thought about removing it at first, but I'll keep it "original". It came from a local arcade. The op had ashtrays on more or less all of his games, and it obviously did wonders for the cpo in this case.  :)

Congratulations, that is a very nice catch. I love Robotron, it is such a frantic game.  :)

Ha! I just remember you and Xentraz talking at the hotel bar at Eurocade '13 and she was telling you how much she'd love to have a Robotron cab!  8) And here we are now :D

I wonder what kind of lousy sticks there were in there originally.

This is mine, and afaik it's original.


Those don't really look like Wico's or am I wrong ? I think the Wico's have longer shafts. I'd love to see a pic of the inside of that CP. Are they leaf or microswitch (let's hope not) ?
