Somewhere around October of 2012 I was looking for a new project and found a beat up old Dig Dug Arcade Cabinet on Craigslist. It had been converted into a Magic Sword at some point in its life and was now mostly gutted and in pretty rough shape. Dings, dents, and water damage, but the bones seemed pretty solid and the price was right. Added bonus- it came with monitor glass, marquee (plexi)glass, and a control panel. The original side art was still there, but in pretty rough shape and hiding under 20 years worth of heavy black paint.
