Hey there. This is going to be short, because I’m tired. I got up around 5AM to drive to NH and pickup these two:
It was pouring out most of the day today, but my brother helped get these with me in his van so they didn’t get wet.
The Super Pac-Man works, and is in pretty decent shape. It’s not shiny and new by any means, but these hardly ever are. The bottom saw some water at some point and is a little swollen, but the sides at the bottom don’t have any water damage. I may put a new bottom in it at some point but its not too bad as is. The monitor has a great picture on it, so I may not bother with a cap kit. I’ll probably just clean this one up and try to find a spot for it in the house. I am severely out of space, but keep finding more somehow.
The Donkey Kong is a bit beat up. It doesn’t look too bad at first glance, but the kickplate has come away from the sides of the cabinet and is leaning in. The piece above that and under the control panel is also coming off. At some point, someone put a load of screws all over the place to try to keep it together and most of them have ripped free. I’ll need to restore the cabinet at some point. The game boots up and plays somewhat OK. The monitor is pretty screwy, so I’ll need to start with a cap kit and see if that fixes it.
I had all the repro art, and other parts to build a DK. I planned on taking my 2nd Popeye that is hiding in the corner of the garage and convert it into a Donkey Kong at some point. Now with this other Nintendo cabinet, I haven’t decided what I’ll do. I may fix this one up and sell it, or might use it to convert to a DK Jr. Decisions, decisions.
