      Question TMNT Marquee - True original LAI version?

      Greetings All

      I've created this post to see if it's possible to determine which is the true LAI TMNT marquee. There is a previous post on AA where 2 versions were submitted as the original Aussie LAI version. http://www.aussiearcade.com/showthre...i-tmnt-marquee

      That post never determined which was the proper original. Also the photos have disappeared (thanks photobucket). I did contact Noodleshirt (MamePatrol) to ask if he, or the friend of his who submitted one of the contenders for original LAI version, knew for sure which was correct but unfortunately we've not yet been able to find out. So I'm throwing this query out to those who may know... which is the true original Aussie LAI version of the TMNT marquee?

      This first contender is the version with the foot soldier, Alex Baxter and a rhino in the middle of it.

      The second contender is the version with the sewer manhole cover in the middle of it.

      Can anyone out there say definitively which it is?

      I have come across other TMNT marquees from around the world. The 2 in my first post were the only contenders for original Aussie LAI version though. For interests sake, here are some others I came across...

      The very top one is the LAI marquee used in 26 inch upright cabs mainly. I have one myself with an LAI stamp on it.

      The first marquee is the one that came with our cabinet when we bought it from LAI.

      The first one is on every original LAI TMNT Ive seen. The second one doesn't even seem to be the right size (too tall or not wide enough). Funny how the background seems to be a cartoon version of the USA marquee design (4th marquee), and the turtles look like cut and paste versions of the standard LAI credit button turtles.

      Another vote for #1. The only marquee I remember seeing back in the day, and the same I have on my TMNT.

      Well then, that's six votes to zero.. unless somebody finds an LAI flyer that shows differently, I'd say our #1 pic is the winner for original LAI version. Thanks all 😁

      Ahhh a flyer, that's a really good idea.....


      so I guess you want to see something like this?

      or how about the cover of a Leisure Line magazine....

      Why is Michaelangelo carrying a miniature version of the TMNT 4P cab on a motorbike?
