So brickseek shows 2-3 of both the Final Fight and the StreetFighter Cabinets at my local Walmart. Thing is, I’ve looked in electronics and saw nothing.  Should I ask an employee.?  Are they probably in the back?  Or being Walmart..... am I just to be told no anyhow and not waste a trip?  They both show $50 at this Walmart too.

You just have to go and take a shot. Like the best major league baseball players, 70% of the time you are going to swing and miss. But with enough persistence, you may finally land a clearance cabinet.

Yep, best bet is just go and try. Very good shot the inventory is just messed up, but it's better to go and ask. If you don't want to reference Brickseek, then try the Walmart app. There's an in store option for your store, mine has shown having 3 of this Rampage in stock, when they don't. It may show up there, and you can always show them and say "Hey, app says you have this, do you know if you do?"bbd31f260045851589bf411e10309b8b.jpg

When I found my Street Fighter cab(granted, the day it dropped to $50 like 2 months ago), they were on an end cap a few aisles away from the electronics department.

I decided to order the Pac-Man 40th from Best Buy. I think it's worth $450 with seven games, the stool, lighted deck and lighted marquee.

Now I will have eight? I have the 12-in-1 from Best Buy, Golden Tee, Final Fight, Mortal Kombat, Star Wars, NBA Jam and the AT Games Ultimate.

I'd still like Rampage and probably Burger Time, and Buck Hunter when it releases.

Took a chance and went to Walmart even though the app didn’t show them but brickseek did  I bought 2 Final Fight and 1 Street Fighter II. A friend asked me to get the Final Fight for him also.

The clicky stick shows that they but some care into this. I will wait for reviews after it's released before spending the money though. Hopefully the Saturn mini will be next!

My black Capcom table came in yesterday. It's beautiful. Final Fight also just arrived at Walmart for pickup.

I'm striking out finding $50.00 deals locally and online for the SF2 cabinet, so I think I'm gonna just wait this fall for the X-Men vs SF cabinet.  If I'm gonna pay more, may as well go for the newer/shiny'er cabinet.  Are new cabinets selectively released only to specific stores (Walmart, Kohls)?  If anyone else has any tips for new cabinet release, let me know, otherwise just gonna virtually camp in front of the virtual store fronts.

My local Walmart is showing as having 3 Pacman cabs for $50 both on the app and on Brickseek, they showed some when they first dropped several months ago, then disappeared. They must have shown up very recently, cause I had just looked the other day. Gonna go early in the morning, maybe they got a shipment, worse case they don't have any. Fingers crossed.

Just curious if anyone in here ever played Target Terror Gold back in the day in the arcades. It’s a light gun game from 2004.
 
I had never played it or even heard of it until a few months ago and I finally got my kit all setup and finally had some time to actually take 15 minutes and play it.
 
And it’s one of the best light gun games I have played. I just never even heard of it back then. It’s probably because I was pretty much done with arcades by the time it was out. But damn it’s good and just flat out fun.

No luck, figured I had to try. Lady said what they had out was it, which was 2 MK and 2 TMNT. She said they haven't gotten any others in. Not sure why it showed up all of a sudden.

Anyone else find themselves just totally fucking obsessed with their home arcade now?

I collect quite a few different things, and I haven't cared about any of them lately. My mind is totally focused on expanding my arcade. I'm up to 8 cabinets and one cocktail cab. Can't wait for some decent, affordable virtual pinball.

I don't have space for more than a couple cabs... but I've become obsessed with fine tuning all the controls and weeding out all the broken junk from my RetroPie modded MK A1Up, if that counts. Definitely spent a lot more time tweaking it than playing on it.

I would if I had more space. But I've already missed out on two early cabinets -- Final Fight, Rampage -- that I'd want above others, and don't want to pay big to get them from a third party.

Yeah thankfully a long standing project I was working on with my multi light gun cabinet has come to a conclusion and I can actually start enjoying it finally.  I kept one of the game boards external so that I can swap one easily without pulling the cabinet out and going inside.  It's pretty clean too and you can't even see it because it's up on top of one of my Rush 2049 SE cabinets.  I have 8 games in the switcher cabinet and 3 games "on deck" that I can swap in if I want to.

Although I don't own a single 1up arcade cabinet, I do feel obsessed as I've been trying to find a good deal a for a few weeks now.  I do have a bartop that I'm building from a kit (w Jamma board), so at least I have that.  This hobby ain't cheap!

Saw NBA Jam units in two different Walmarts today.  $399, although one store had a unit that looked like it went through a wood chipper for $299 special markdown.

 

Also, saw shelf stickers for 40th anniversary Pac Man.

Damn, I'm super jealous, but congrats! This is the deal/cab I'm trying to get. Saw that all my nearby Walmarts had them in stock once shutdowns hit at the end of March, but I was too hesitant to step foot in a store at that time (and they sold out fast). Really hope to score one of these soon.

I'm in Southern California. Any chance that you found one in the same area?

I ordered it online for in store pickup, then did a return/rebuy for the clearance price. Website sold out pretty quick though.

Arcade 1Up's shipping costs are a joke. I don't think I'll ever order directly from them because of it. I wanted to order BurgerTime and a few risers and the shipping was $95. Fuck that.

Yeah, their shipping prices are incredibly brutal. The shipping for my control deck protector for my SF2:CE cabinet cost the same as the actual protector.

 

Unfortunately, BurgerTime can't be bought elsewhere since it is exclusively direct sale by Arcade1Up.com

Are you just getting the reproductions or do you have legit arcade machines too?
