Picked this up a few hours ago.It's in nice shape except some BG flaking.Nice PF,no broken plastics at all,nice clean cab inside and out.I can't wait to get into it tomorrow and test some voltages to see if it works.Boards are actually clean and rectifier board pins and plugs are not charred at all.I'm hoping for the best

Cool. Nice pickup.

Someone scan the back glass, I love that back glass! It needs to be repo'd

Nice find, I would love to have a Viper and an Embryon side by side one day. BG Resto has previously done a Viper backglass so you can likely have them print one for you.

Man that is sweet looking. What is the story behind the pickup? Did the guy know what he had? Was it close or did you travel far? I need to look up some facts about this game because I love classic Sterns but don't know much about this one.

Edit: How many of these games were made?

He knew what he had.I traveled about 30 minutes round trip

I'm guessing he was a collector and not a operator. Did he say where he got it from? I'm sorry if I'm nosy but I just love stories about finding rare games.

Just a quick question, do people prefer the art on this game or GoT? How did stern go from making pieces of art like this to GoT?

Come on, please let's not open that can of worms here. Plenty of other threads for that.
