What’s the value of an original clean fully working Sky Kid pcb?

Ok thanks.
It’s very good condition. I was thinking of converting it to pacland but already have about 8 of those.

Namco Pacland hardware goes for crazy prices in Japan for some reason.  Skykid is a really good game.  I wouldn't convert it.  £200 + is a spot I think.

Yeah, don't see them very often, so wouldn't be surprised if it was a £200+ board. There's a Sky Kid Deluxe in Japan on ebay for a mere $3200. LOL Just trying to think how many other right-to-left shooters there are... Choplifter... er... um...

I get mixed up with all these boards... So, a sky kid can be converted to splatterhouse with just rom swaps? Or am I mixed up again? :p

Edit: I can answer my own lazy question, no, it isn't the same hardware as splatterhouse.

Yeah same. I see Pacland up for sale reasonably often, but nothing SkyKid for yonks. I would leave it too.
I think mine is an original board.. dubious roms on it mind.

Well my board is original, clean and it also saves it's high scores to NV ram, so am guessing it will be worth even more

A billion dollars! Sky Kid is an AWESOME game. Don't convert it, in fact - convert a cacky old Rolling Thunder into a Sky Kid Deluxe!

It's gone because of cools purging of topics on AO and it did eventually sell  but I was surprised as I would have had it as somewhat desirable and didn't have the funds to buy it at the time !LOL story of my life !!
