It looks like the clearance pricing has stopped at the one Wal-Mart in my area that was selling these at half off.

Not sure what you mean... are they all full price now?

All except for Final Fight, for some reason, which still comes up at $150.  Everything else is $299.99 (it's unknown whether SFII's in store price is matching the current online price).

Even with the risers, aren't these Oompa Loompa size?  Better to get or build a full sized custom cabinet with thousands of emulated games, no?

If you can score one cheap these work well and come with lcd art work etc.  If you bought an asteroid cab for 75 you can go to 1 up and by a street fighter control deck cheap, (When it is in stock)  They sell most of their control decks between 25-35  bucks.  My friend got the street fighter one for 37 shipped.  He bought a street fighter pcb off ebay for 20. Arcade 1 up sells them for around  29.99. So now he has an asteroids and street fighter unit  if he wants.  Someone just sold a mortal kombat control deck and PCB for 80 on ebay. The downside to this is you wont get the full art work but the versatility is nice and your not getting fleeced.

I believe they're 3/4, so with a riser, you'd be looking at around normal height for the controls. The screen is going to be smaller, but unless you're really tall, you shouldn't have a problem. Even then, you can probably have a riser made that will make it even taller.

I watched a video of a guy comparing the A1UP unit with a riser to a a few original machines and the control decks were pretty much on the same level, give or take a few inches. The guy was 6'1'' and said it was comfortable.

I wish Final Fight was $150 around me. Out of the ones that are out right now that is the only one I really want to own.

Final Fight is also my number one want, but Rampage/Gauntlet is a close 2nd.  I used to play those games a ton when I was a kid.

Rampage would be my second pick right now too. I'd buy that one if I saw it for $150 or less. I am willing to pay full price for the Marvel cabinet though, really want that one.

FYI- Arcade1Up confirmed on Twitter yesterday that the TMNT cab will be available in November.  Still no word on pre-orders, though.

Walmart near me had 6+ all of a sudden appear on brickseek for a $76 galaga. I ordered one for pickup. Instantly changed on brickseek to “4-5.” Still says 4-5 today. Walmart email today saying pickup delayed.

Riiiiiiight. Bastards.

Some people arent that mechanically inclined or have the tools to do so. If you dont have any of the stuff this is the cheapest way in I'd guess.

And some people just like them. I built s rasp pi bartop a couple years ago. I’m currently working on an 80’s cocktail cab that I gutted and am rebuilding with a pc inside to emulate everything up to ps2 and Naomi arcade.

I bought an Arcade1up pacman before Christmas for $199 and I love it. I’d like to get another Arcade1up or 2. I don’t like the risers at all. It’s the perfect size for my 3 year old and works great for me sitting on a small stool. I think they are great as is (if you have realistic expectations) and are really great to mod or tinker with.

To each their own.

This. Was able to get Centipedes for $75 about a month ago, my 3 year old loves it and somehow started calling it the "time machine." It's perfect size for him, and he loves Crystal Castles, I think because it's similar to Pacman in that you collect dots, and he LOVES Pacman. The art on the cabinet is great and I really enjoy it. I'd love the Asteroids one just because I love that game, but haven't been able to snag one.

I picked up a $75 asteroids for a friend a month or so ago. They had 3 at the time but I passed on getting myself one. I’m all for modding, but if I’m gonna gut the entire thing I’d rather just build from scratch.

Some Walmarts have them on clearance for as low as $11.  Deal's been around for a while so good luck.

It is not even about heavy gutting.  The arcade 1up is selling the control decks dirt cheap. The Rampage has 3 sticks.  Street fighter as well.  (When in Stock) the control decks are complete painted and buttons and stick no protective overlay.   They sell the street fighter pcb for 30 bucks.     Pre cut perfection inthe pic below he added buttons but going this route you can get the best of both worlds cheap.

I snagged a $75 Asteroids! Of course the spinner is crap, but the cab is still worth the price to me. I do plan on modding it at some point, but it sure looks like I can swap it to another control board and have those games instead? Might get the 12-in-one and Rampage boards, they are only $30 each! Am I right about this? It looks like an easy swap.

Curious too. If you bought an Asteroids machine, do you only need to buy a 12 in 1 control deck to turn it into the 12 in 1 machine or do you need a PCB too?

 

Also, whats the point in the Arcade1UP site saying the parts are on sale but having no prices or ability to buy them on the site? 

 

EDIT: Ah, the parts you can't buy are out of stock I guess

You would need the pcb board and the proper 1 up control deck.  The stock goes in and out but One could try calling them.  There is also ebay people selling gutted parts but remember they can over price. so I wouldn't pay more than I would get it from arcade  1 up. unless you are desperate.

Thanks! A lot of folks on FB Marketplace are selling the boards after modding. Got a line on Rampage control deck and pcb for $40. May bite... or just wait til I can play that on a fully modded system.

This great hobby stuff LOL   Some of the Rampages have hidden games that can be access with a little soldering.  ETA prime has an excellent video on how to do it.  there is tweaking involved but It very interesting

Picked up a $75 Galaga today from Walmart in North Brunswick nJ- zip 08902.

I actually ordered it for store pickup last week- out of nowhere that one store had 6+ in stock for $75 and it actually let me order for pickup. Walmart being Walmart it just sat there for 2 days, they sold all 6, and then I get the email saying pickup delayed.

Turns out, they shipped a new one there for me for that store pickup order. I went there, picked it up, walked over to customer service with it and did a retur/rebuy for the $75. Lady didn’t give me a hard time at all and was actually quite friendly.

Perfect timing too. I ordered a GRS trackball that just came in yesterday. Will be converting this into a rasp pi system with a trackball. I’ll eventually use all the original parts and build something out of that (the galaga controls and board).
