The overhauled replica Dynamo cabinet features a unique coin door security bar, a mini bat-top joystick, microswitch buttons, yellow T-molding, customizable operator DIP-switch settings and more. Just like the 1942 cabinet,1943 X RepliCade features HDTV connectivity and includes a bonus 1943 Mini Arcade Stick, which can be stored in the rear of the machine.
