It’s funny you say that. Years ago I’d be all over these super cheap deals on candy and treats. Now I just skip right past them. The only clearance things the misses and I did buy recently was some target jelly beans of various flavors when easter candy hit 90% off. 1lb bags of candy for $.30 each was hard to pass up and can easily be gifted too.

Seagate 3tb for $25: https://brickseek.co...r?sku=319771236

Struck out at local store, 4 in stock but nowhere to be found. Apparently manager did markdown and knows where they would be, but not in until tomorrow.

I saw most of the mini retro games at Walmart today on clearance for $5.

Also found 2 pairs of Anker Active Noise cancelling headphones on clearance for $25.

Anker Bluetooth earbuds for $9

Soundbar above TV shelf for $9

Nice too bad none of them are in stock near by for me at that price.  I even saw one listed for mayfield ohio for 10$ >.>  The few that are in stock for me are all limited stock and at 64$ so while not a bad price not really worth the effort either. Especially since only one of them is close to my city.

 

Not sure if this one is good quality wise but they have this 1tb passport external harddrive for 53$ https://brickseek.co...r?sku=186347776

Saw that a store nearby may have had 1 in stock, no luck. The employee in electronics said that the store had likely sold out some time ago. She also said the website probably didn't fully update to show they are OOS.

This is exactly what I ended up doing. $100 is about right in general for a real basic setup. I've put in a little extra money. Definitely recommend getting the riser or make your own to raise the height unless you want to use a stool. The only thing original remaining in my cabinet is the screen and the cabinet shell. Arcade1up also has recently been selling some of the components directly on their website.

Do you have any general advice for the going the cheapass route? Right now I'm leaning towards returning Asteroids and keeping Centipede, but no matter what it seems like I need some sort of protection or the art will wear off, otherwise I'd probably leave it as is for now. The $12 shipping on the site bothers my cheapass sensibilities as well, $30 to protect a $75 item sucks. I could also just order a wooden piece that has all the right holes for a full two player layout, but of course I'm committing to modding it at that point, and I don't want to spend a whole lot to mod it (some recommendations seems to be around $200 worth of stuff).

Put together both Asteroids and Centipede last night and today and could be happier for $75 each. I was a little skeptical of the Galaga display, it was ruff looking. But took my time, not that much was needed, and very sturdy and well built. Definitely need risers. But seriously, as soon as I fired up Asteroids, it was like being 10 again. Not modding, these are for nostalgia and entertainment pieces for the game room.

The TCL 6 series at least has Dolby Vision, which a step up from most, if not all budget TVs. It has the best bang for your buck imo.

I was going to buy that TV but decided to spend an extra four or five hundred or whatever it was and get an LG B7 OLED instead.

Finally scored a copy of No Man's Sky (PS4), at a store that wasn't supposed to have it, no less. I casually mentioned two nearby stores had it for $5 (I couldn't find the copies there), and it wasn't coming up at the scanners. She went with $9.88 because that was the last price they had. I couldn't argue.

Also got some nice boxers for $3 on clearance. Made me laugh because they were in an electronics lock box

I bought some items on ebay and those are no longer available. I used some coupons and ebay bucks at the time to save some money.

This Reddit post has some good info on parts to buy.

https://www.reddit.c...tm_source=share

Biggest thing is with the LCD driver boards matching with the display you have as not all displays are the same model.

This guy in Texas has a bunch of upgrade parts for sale as well for custom control panels and other things.

https://www.diyretro...ntrol-deck.html

I bought the 2 player control panel from him, but looks like they have many more options now.

You might get by with $100, but $150 might be more realistic.

Great find. It's $25 by me. I already have one but might pick up one for my brother.

Very easy to hack. I got 100 ps1 games, 100 arcade games, and about 40 snes games on a 128gb on a flash drive and still lots more room for other stuff. Whenever my buddies come over, they all want to play it, especially all those fun beat-em-up arcade games you can get on there.

The PlayStation Classic is also $40 at Target right now, and there's a 35% off coupon in the Cartwheel app.

Stack that with Redcard, and you're basically at $25 and change at Target if your Walmart doesn't have it.

Yes it runs Mame with no issues. You'll have to use retroarch to do it and get the Mame core.

Unfortunately we're now in that holiday dead zone and there won't be any big seasonal candy clearance until after Halloween. I know some do special colors for Independence Day but not many.

Managed to grab the last Asteroids at the Wal Mart by my work. No Centipede left. Still happy. Tempest is my favorite arcade game

Man, I know those things are basically junk but I wouldn't hesitate picking one up at a sub $20 price tag just for the novelty of it.  Hopefully they drop in price around me soon.

Yep.  You can currently get a clearance 55" LG B8 for $1049 and that's something anyone looking for a high-end television should consider.  That's an excellent price point. 

 

Personally I like the E8 for $1349 a little bit better; nicer form, good speakers, better processor.  But a clearance B8 is a great deal for someone looking to get into OLED without having to baby their set.

Any idea what the Anker headphones were named? I could really use some but can't seem to find anything on brickseek.

I got some Cadbury eggs on clearance a few weeks ago. They're kind of disgusting to an adult mind but the kid in me demanded it, knowing that the opportunity for more wasn't going to arise for a long, long time. Maybe it's for the best... I was going through a lot of seasonal candy and going without it for a few months will be good for my waistline.
