Retro Archives

Got a ton of professional arcade magazines from the 70s until 2000 (mostly in French but not only)... Let's see what kind of 'hidden treasures' can be found in there!
WARNING : some serious stuff to come in there... and I just want to be sure you won't miss them!  ;)
Feel free to comments on ...the Retro Archives Gallery!

RoadBlasters... for the North Africa market!

RoadBlasters... for the North Africa market!



http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=43

Have a look a this RoadBlasters built by SEGAL, a factory located in Morocco.
This factory build official products, mostly pinballs (they have the Gottlieb license).
Their builds games for the North Africa market.
They also have the Atari license, and so this RoadBasters version as pictured.
They received electronics & metal parts from (and done by) Atari. They just build the cabinet (the wood parts) and assembled the parts...
First time I see that version!  :shock:
