It looks like this 4 games have the same hardware. 

Blockade #807-0001 (Oct 1976)
coMotion #808-0001 (Oct 1976)
Hustle #813-0001 (May 1977)
Blasto #819-0001

Hustle have the same PCB layout as coMotion, can this be the case for the athour two aswell?? Did they just change the proms on the boards??

Blasto came in two versions, one standup-cabinet and one with the same cabinet as you see here.

If you have any info or pictures from the days it was in action, well anything :) Please let me now. Just send a email to:  Hans

Some weeks ago i had contact with a collector in the US, hi had an Cosmic Attackers Table-Top made by Elcon Industries.

I have never seen it before and when i search Klov i found an Cosmic Attackers with allmost the same cabinet as the coMotion standup. So Elcon Industries made game with the same cabinets as Gremlin. Is there more like this out there ??

Now the machine is cleaned and ready for gameboard :)
