Atarian63,
Yeah, I've ordered stuff from Bob Roberts before. He's pretty cool; he even sent me some moon pies and Mardi Gras stuff last time I ordered a cap kit for my Phoenix! Neat guy.
I just wanted to be sure the cap kit was what I needed this time.. just not sure how to send pics through PMs on this site. You get the option to send images but only through URLs, it seems. I just wanna send pics I've saved on my hard drive! How do I do that? :?:

I'd love to have a Dragon's Lair arcade cab in my room :love: ....Gauntlet 2 sounds really fun to have too....




I also like to have the Dark Stalkers arcade game in my room that would be rad.

I'd love to have the original Star Wars Arcade Cockpit machine (the one with vector graphics). That or a Street Fighter II Turbo machine.

I wouldn't mind having a Mouse Trap, if Exidy games didn't take a long time to start up. (or at least the 1981-and after Exidy games).
Astro Blaster would be nice to have, but there's probably some bad screen burn.
Scramble would be very nice. Or at least get the board, as it has no copyright protection and I could run it in just about any cab.

I loved Warrior when I was a kid. Overhead view of knights swordfighting in a dungeon? What's not to love? Plus the cab and background had this neon/blacklight look to it that looked wicked in the darkness of an arcade.

Hmmm...I thought the easy answer would be Tron. I love everything about it, the cab, the lights, the unique controls, the variety of mini-games. On the other hand, it's a a game that I probably played to death, so I'd worry I'd get bored with it. Nahhh.... :D

Spy Hunter would be great.

Asteroids would be nice too.

I think I must have a thing for unconventional contol panels.

You probably want to own Defender too! And perhaps Frontline as well. :|
A few Neo Geo shooters I'd like to add to my cabinet would be Last Resort and Blazing Star, or maybe Pulstar.

I would love to own Tracer. It was the first game I ever played as a kid and as there is no emulation available of the rom the machine would be the only way I could play it ;)

Wizard of Wor
I've played a lot of other games more but for some reason I think that would be it.
Truth is I'll probably have a MAME machine if I ever get the time to build one.

Before I'd get a video game, I'd get a $5,000 arcade Skee-Ball machine. Also an arcade basketball game that will see the ball go in every time.

Very hard choice for me but I will have to go with Pit-Fighter, I just loved that game so much and there was never a perfect home conversion even the one on the PS2 Classics disc played too fast.

WWF Wrestlefest would be a very close second.
