For many video game collectors, there is no item more desirable in the whole wide world than their own authentic arcade machine. It’s another Arcade Weekends, and remember, Winners Don’t Use Drugs.
I will point out every week that arcade units purchased from auction sites usually have inflated prices — unless you live close enough to the seller that you can pick the unit up yourself. Many sellers know this and list their items as Local Pick-Ups only (marked here as LPUs). If you DO live near any of today’s sellers, some of these deals aren’t bad.
From Martinsburg, West Virginia: SEVEN AT ONCE! Terminator 2, Tekken 2, NFL Blitz/NBA Jam, 1942, Area 51, Lethal Enforcers, and a bowling game. The story goes that they were found in a storage unit, caked with dust. Weirdly, the seller made no attempt to remove any of that dust before offering these up, nor did he even try plugging them in….which sounds suspicious, but he’s got a 100% feedback rating so far, so……You can ask the seller for a shipping quote, but it won’t be cheap.
