We did not get any leads from the owner. Actually, the three cabs are from two different places. Canyon Bomber came from one place in Sweden and Space Attac and Super Bug from another. Not sure if they have ever been part of a complete circle of six games. With just three they could be placed against a wall, forming a half circle. I do have a lead on a fourth cab though.

Status according to seller:
Canyon Bomber: Working
Space Attac: Shows garbage
Super Bug: Unknown

I did not want to turn them on without inspecting them more thoroughly first so I have yet to confirm what the seller told us. I brought the super bug pcb home in order to test it on my bench.

worth to mention is that the cabinets are in storage in my hometown and kralleman lives a couple of hours from here, so he cant work on them on a daily basis... he will take pcb:s and chassis home and check/fix... so I suggest he makes a restoration thread for them where we all can follow the way back to life...

I see them almost everyday in the warehouse.. they are something special...

Yup. A little bit frustrating but I don't have the space at home at the moment.

I tested the Super Bug pcb on my desk now at least. Does not boot. The reset pin is stuck low. I tried swapping it but same problem. Some chips have burnt and/or rusty legs. I need to spend some more time with this one obviously.

@Kralleman

Even in the star trek series intro, they said: space, the final frontier  ;D

I love reading about your roadtrips!
