Defending the Universe with…. Defender!


We have had the opportunity to work on many Defender machines over the years, but the one we recently came across is one of the cleanest machines that we have seen in a long time. The control panel has the typical Williams Defender , Stargate , Make Trax , Robotron , Joust cigarette burns, but overall the machine’s cabinet is a solid 9 out of 10. The electronics are proving to be a bit of challenge with some weird issues, but again, we are figuring them out. Eugene Jarvis and Larry DeMar really put in some incredible effort with this machine and when we play it, we cannot believe it is from 1980. It still holds up incredibly well.

Such a great cabinet
