I took a few liberties with this one... had some parts laying around and I thought I'd put them to use.

Nice work. Since you dropped the spinner you should at least add a tracball. Or a mini steering wheel. Also, check out the led t-molding they have now, it would really add to the look.

You can actually turn the red Wico top to act as a spinner!

The thought of an MCR / Williams boardset hybrid is the most horrifying thing I'll see this Halloween. Thank you for the nightmares. ;)

The game and the picture isn't real, right?

All looks and seems fake.

Correct, this is just a mashup, stylized-design I did for fun, combining two games I enjoy, simply as I like art and I like arcade & pinball machines.

No original games or parts have been harmed or destroyed. I'm probably just going to make a poster of it for my game room and/or print a shirt for myself.

this is truth. it utilizes a 5 stack boardset, each one connected via the system 6 40-pin connector, but also uses 18 ribbon cables and 75 4116 ram chips.

my robotron has been dead for 6 years. :(

Anyone that doesn't utilize JROK Williams Multi if they can is crazy.

I would sign up for a (large) coffee mug. Seriously.
