It is interesting that someone listened on the Obiwan / Vader facing away complaint from the original.
Quoted from KenLayton:
Yes. I agree. Even a "blank" coin door has a place for the service/test/volume switch assembly. It also allows you to reach in and unlatch the lockdown bar so you can slide out the glass.
Maybe we should challenge the status quo. Is a lockbar and latch system ideal for home. Sliding out a playfield glass is a really bad experience and requires a lot of space. Designs more that fireball did or glass that lifts out seems much better in a home environment. The coin door makes it easy to get access to the coin box and fix jams in the coin mechs.
