Hi all,

Transferred in full from the valuations section, was looking for £250 now £200 as I need to move this on

This is the first machine up for sale from the recent eBay job lot, an original Universal Space Panic which appears to be complete, if requiring a bit of work to restore. It is the Electrocoin version officially launched in the U.K. I don't have the cabinet in hand yet but I do own and am hoping to offload before I have to collect and save on multiple deliveries. Currently residing in Leighton Buzzard.

The good bits:

All I know from a brief once-over is that the monitor, power brick and PCB are in place, and the PCB appears to be an original Universal Space Panic based on the picture I was able to take through the coin door (see below) - I found similar PCB's online that look identical. Internals appear un-hacked and unmolested. Marquee, control panel and bezel are intact and appear original.

The bad bits:

There is water damage to the chipboard at the top of the cabinet by the marquee where it has swelled and is crumbly - will need at least some clamps and some wood hardener to stabilise, but the rest of the cabinet appears solid. The sides also appear to be painted black, over the wood veneer. It was sold to me as part of a lot which is untested and has not been powered on for at least 15 years, so no claim can be made as to the state of the PCB or the monitor.



Cheers

That's going to be a beauty when it's had a bit of tlc. These really early Electrocoin cabs are getting very rare now.

The one we found at the Aberdeen rescue fell to bits when we pulled it out of storage.

Poor thing...

I don't have the capacity right now, otherwise it would be going in storage awaiting renovation. Too many projects, too little space and time :(

That's an ace price, I am holding out for the cocktails though.  Surely someone will snap that up before the day is out.

I hope so. If it wasn't for storage issues I would keep it myself!
