Long-Gone Action Hero

Shop Notes 22 January 2019 | Comments Off on Long-Gone Action Hero

We had this great machine in the shop last month, but we never posted pictures. Now you can see how nice it was! Check out this really great Last Action Hero, and ponder what might have been.

Data East came out with Last Action Hero in 1993, and produced around 5,500 machines. (IPDB)

That was the same year the movie of the same name debuted, starring, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and his giant head. (IMDB)

The movie is a send-up of the kind of movies that made Arnie famous, as a magic ticket allows a young film fan to be transported into the fantasy world of his favorite action hero.

We gave this game a full shop job, tearing everything off the playfield to be polished, washed, tumbled, buffed, or otherwise cleaned.

We installed Cointaker LEDs throughout as well.

We added a few special touches, too, including color-coded post sleeves and Super Bands on the flippers.

This game was in great shape to start with, with little to no wear on the cabinet and playfield.

Look at that beautiful glow!

We were happy to send the game on its way to a really nice family.
