We’ve seen a few excellent custom OutRun models before but this is a first for custom poseable figures.
Vic has used pieces from various other figures to create these custom OutRun characters. Alberto the driver of the ferrari was made with Wolverine arms. His face and head from Daredevil with painted black glasses . Clarissa uses parts from Street Fighter 2’s Cammy and other figures.
The Ferrari is a 1:12 scale Testarossa kit by Monogram. The car was modified into a convertible by cutting off the top half.
Check out below the latest video of Chris Whites superb OutRun track editor called ‘LayOut‘
The video shows a new track that’s been created and then it’s tested by running Cannonball The re-engineered and improved OutRun also by Chris.
I really hope that Yu Suzuki gets to see this impressive expansion to his game.
This Japanese business man sure knows how to play OutRun. I have a feeling that this is one of his favorite games that he played as a youngster in the 80’s.
He even shows off the ‘Gear Gacha’ technique!
SEGA Ages U.S Magazine Advertisement
The U.S and European release of Yu Suzuki’s classic 3 games came bundled on one disc and missed out on a few extras when compared to the Japanese individual releases of the SEGA Ages range.
Japan also had releases of Power Drift and Galaxy Force II.
[Above- People crowd around the first official sighting of a game called OutRun]
Back in 1986 SEGA show of OutRun for the first time at JAMMA.
As you can see from the photo the base of the machine is slightly different from the later official release.
Below is a picture of a SEGA OutRun game card. Looks like it may of been given out at the show in 1986.
Not sure if it’s a phone card or a entry card but I doubt it was used as a game credit swipe card that modern arcades use these days.
I have a similar Sonic one from London’s Trocadero Arcade back in the early 90’s.
Looks nice though with the OutRun graphic being the same as the one that can be seen on the front of some stand up machines.
Does anyone know more about the card or AM Show??
Thanks to the guys at SEGA AMUSEMENTS on Twitter for giving a update and translation of the card.
