So NewSherrifInTown and I went back to our little honey hole. I picked up some interesting conversions and an original dedicated.
1: First the Abomination:
An IRobot converted to a Street Fighter! Look at that awesome control panel and that wonderful black paint over the original artwork :
The game is playing but the monitor has vertical collapse.
2: Second the Fixation:
A Mario Widebody that was converted to a Ninja Gaiden. This one will be “Fixed”, ie restored to a Mario Widebody:
The game is working just fine. And the bezel is flipped, so it might be perfect. We’ll see.
3: The Appreciation:
A complete and original Space Invaders. Condition is fair. Don’t know if it is working as the fuse blows immediately. I will rebuild the power supply and cap the monitor and see.
I got these 3 games, a box of diodes/ axial caps/ transistors/ resistors, 3 NIB 19″ crt’s, a NIB 25″ crt, a pallet of 7 pinball glasses and around 25 used 19″ monitors for $350
I’ll try, but it looks like the control panel hack kind of hurt it pretty bad
But there was some of the bezel art left :
And the back door page is still there:
The Mario Bezel is in real good shape!
And she lives!
Had to shotgun the power supply, cap the monitor, replace the light bulb, and change a tantalum cap on the game pcb that was causing the 12v fuse to blow.
