Arcade Weekends

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.

arcade24-1 From Marion, Ohio: Star Wars Racer Arcade, BIN at $695, ask seller for a shipping quote.

arcade24-3 From Troy, Michigan: Crazy Taxi Sit-Down Unit, BIN at $875 or best offer, ask seller for a shipping quote.

arcade24-2 From Loveland, Ohio: Cruis’n USA, BIN at $595 or best offer, LPU. Sound needs repair.

arcade24-4 From Lodi, California: NBA Jam 4-Player Unit, ends soon with a current bid of $430, buyer must arrange shipping.

arcade24-5 From Phoenix, Arizona: Two linked-up Hydro Thunder machines, LPU, BIN at $1000 but has no current bids at $700. Seller says one of the units “needs some work” but did not specify what kind.

arcade24-6 From Peru, Indiana: Neo Geo Upright with Metal Slug and Samurai Shodown II, BIN at $575 or best offer, ask seller for a shipping quote.

arcade24-8 From Port Clinton, Ohio: Donkey Kong, LPU, no current bids at $495.

arcade24-7 From Marietta, Georgia: The first Elevator Action unit we’ve seen on AW, BIN at $250 or best offer, $300 shipping fee. Horribly dusty and the seller says he hasn’t turned it on. Dontcha just hate people like this?
