Recased Robotron machine
« on: March 09, 2007, 01:38:42 pm »
I need to make some room in my gameroom since I already have 2 other cabs and was wondering what you think I could get for this machine. It's been recased. The case itself is in perfect condition. It was professional painted with some textured plasticky sort of paint over MDF and seems to be indesctructable. I've had it for about 15 years and there is barely a scratch on it. It's the original Robotron marquee and the Robotron main board. It need to be repaired though. The screen still work but justs flashes red and some other colors. Thanks.

Not much.... When you consider that the boards are not working and the case isn't an original.

You could break it down and sell off the parts.... But even then you might not get much for it.

The reason I say this is, that you have to remeber that people can pick up non working machines for $50 or less. Sometimes even for free if they go to their local arcade dealers.

You might be better off breaking it down and using the parts on your own projects. Especially the monitor.
