I'm such a fan of Defender, I've built one 3 times. Some obvious misses here, first, the controls. The position of the reverse button in relation to the joystick is super important. The MK layout is a mistake. The J Panel should have the artwork on it. The game selection - needs Stargate.

If there is any cabinet that needs a good sound system, it's a Williams cabinet. I hope the sound is stereo at least.

Great builds Lew.  :applaud:

The Defender is a mock up so my guess it will be a Williams Multicade layout.

I'm still waiting to see the final look for the Tron cab with the push/pull spinner that hopefully will not break after a couple of plays.

That's too bad.

That cabinet is an easy one to hit out of the park with the right games in it (so the controls are proper as lew has pointed out.)

Still don't know why they don't use a legit focus group in development.

Although most people aren't tuned to the humiliation of playing Stargate anyway.

Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.
