The description in the MvC Best Buy product page mentions an included stool.

I see that buried in there now - they did a great job not including any pics of it. 

 

Edit - Ok, now I see a pic!  Has that been there this whole time?   The stool seems kinda lame... it's just the Marvel half of the face-off art on the cab.  Might have been a good opportunity to include two stools and stick the Capcom art on the other one.

Does anyone know if there is a certain amount of times you can do a return/rebuy at Walmart? Just landed the Final Fight cabinet for $50 and was thinking about doing some other ones if they become available.

Can someone recommend a good all in one arcade unit?  I would like one for my garage. Needs to be four player. Thank you.

Arcade Legends isn't inherently 4 players, but my understanding is you can hook two extra USB Controllers into it and play 4 player that way.  Never tried it out though.

What is your budget? Plug and play or put together yourself?

Game room solutions has a cnc 4 player kit. Monster Arcades have birch cabinets either plug and play or cabinet only (put together, shipped freight)

I like my legends ultimate and would recommend for a budget cab, but would not recommend for 4 player because who wants to get stuck using the controller (especially with kids)

Man that Virtua Fighter cabinet would be awesome. If it's real, shame they went with the Virtua Fighter cabinet art and not Virtua Fighter 2.

So far the Virtue Fighter cab has been reported as fake, even from the PR guy David Mcintosh. However, I do agree the VF2 art would be better - but that cab would be a day 1 $500 purchase for me, lol.
Any thoughts on the "SUPREME" MK cab? Other than it being overly "SUPREME" labeled, the only different I could see is that it might be online?
*reminds me of the "XTREME" 90's, lol

Is this for real, or just more fun being had?

It's real, the arcade1up PR guy tweeted it. Supreme looks like it's a specialty store in New York. So probably no real differences except it now being "Xtreme", errr sorry, "SUPREME".

It didn't reach appropriate levels of Mountain Dew for the FTC to call it "Extreme"

Well goddamn it. My extent of knowledge of Supreme is from the episode that Hasan Minjah did of his show. I'm personally not a fan. Also it's ugly as all Fuck.

I saw on Walmart they have a bunch of miniature arcade machines for under $20.  Mostly the usually ones you find like Ms. Pacman, Dig-Dug, Galaga, etc.  But I noticed there was a mini Mortal Kombat one too which I hadn't seen before.  They also have the "fake" arcade machine from Wreck-it Ralph (Fix it Felix Jr.) which seems pretty cool.

Check your local walmart. They have been putting some of these on clearance. Last week I picked up Spy Hunter, Defender, MS Pacman, and Dig Dug for 4$ a piece.

Same here, but I've never really been much of a MK fan to begin with, so no matter how good a MK cab may look, I'm probably not the intended audience, so all good I suppose.

If this is real, clearly this company has no damn clue what they're doing.

Supreme started out as a skate shop in the mid 90s. They have a skate team, produce videos and collaborate with a bunch of brands/celebrities (such as North Face, Lady Gaga, Nike, Neil Young, Smurfs, NBA, Wu-Tang Clan, Louis Vuitton, etc.)

They are one of the hottest hypebeast/streetwear brands in all of fashion. They once sold a brick with their logo on it and it sold out in seconds. People line up for blocks to buy and resell their stuff.

I agree that the MK cabinet is ugly, but it will sell like hotcakes.

Well, good to know A1U is at least up to date with the latest hipster trends since they don't know shit about video games. I guess poaching the wallets of dumbasses who buy bricks will delay their inevitable bankruptcy for a few months.

Does anybody know in here if the Pac-Man cabs have had a new UPC?

Brickseek shows: https://brickseek.co...r?sku=792203275

All of the stores near me show $50, but out of stock. I know two of the stores have a single unit each.
But, when I scanned the barcode in store with the Walmart app, it showed $299.

Now, I could try and flag a worker down and have them scan, but it’s prolly futile.
So, just curious if anybody is aware of a SKU/UPC change on the cab?

The TMNT cab had an SKU change, so it's possible the same thing happened with Pac-Man.

Dumb question, but you are sure that it was the same cab and not the new Pac-man cab?  The old one should be really hard to find at this point and WMs around me have all started getting some of the new cab with five or six games instead of two.

Not a dumb question. You’re probably right. I don’t know anything about these things, as the MSRP did not interest me in the slfghtest.
But, if they’ve had two flavors of Pac-Man, that’s prolly what is going on.

I’ll need to inspect the box a bit better. I think this had Pac-Man and Galaga? Can’t remember if it had other games or not.

The one with Galaga is the new anniversary Pac-Man.  It's $299.

 

Your brickseek Pac-Man is the one that came out last year and clearanced months ago.

How long do I have to 'register'? I finally put my NBA Jam and Pac-Man 40th cabs together today and they look awesome. My ALU is next on the list to put together.
