For many video game collectors, there is no item more desirable, no monolith more awe-inspiring to a man-cave, than their own authentic arcade machine. Get ready to drool like you’re 18 weeks old….it’s Arcade Weekends.
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.
ADDITIONAL NOTE: I wrote this anticipating it’d be posted on Saturday morning. Apologies if half of them are expired by now.
