I figured this was the best place to ask. Was there an official Konami cabinet for this game in uk/ireland/europe?

I can see some examples on American websites, but they were probably North American only. Or perhaps same?

Thanks!

Nemesis, of course, here. For ages I was convinced Konami aliens was a dedicated (turns out it wasn't, just an elaborate kit)

Same thing for this game? Kit/semi-dedicated/dedicated?

It was licensed to Electrocoin in the UK I believe and normally in a Goliath cabinet with just a Nemesis marquee. 

Just a standard one though, not like the 'dedicated' one with different cabinet and side art, marquee and a cpo that Salamander came with not long afterwards.

There is a dedicated Nemesis cab - I would never have believed it though. Not sure if it is Japanese or US based.

From other sources I believe it was electrocoin, as said above. The other pictures are of the north American cabinet (I think). My mind may be playing tricks with me, but that American CPO may be the one ive seen?? Cabinet are bunched so cant see sideart.

But its always worth throwing questions out to the wild, you never know whos sitting on some bizarre one-of-kind dedicated Ireland/UK cabinet!

On a sidenote (and again, using different sources), it would be really useful, and interesting, to see a full list of what electrocoin were up to with all these licenced cabinets and games. Salamander is a good example. Maybe that information is already posted somewhere here?
