Re: curious about history...
02/21/14 07:30 PM


I don't really know anything of it's life before I owned it so the farthest I can go back is 2003 when I picked it up.

If I remember the details correctly it was on Ebay one day with the description of almost working but would reset during game play. I think that helped scare other people away because I was able to pick the game up for I think $86 or something close to that. When I got it home and had the chance to look at it I noticed someone had just hooked one of the wires to the coin switch, didn't secure it in anyway with solder or a terminal connector so if you hit the cab it could break the connection and cause a reset so it was a pretty simple fix. Other then that and a blown 73v regulator in the monitor I haven't had any other trouble with it.

It seems to be pretty rare I've heard of 5 others in varied conditions that are still around. I plan to bring it to the Northwest Pinball and Arcade Show because it will be 40 years old this year
