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.

From Peru (the Peru in Indiana): Soul Calibur II, BIN at $675 or best offer, freight shipping possible. Ends soon.

From same seller: Frogger cocktail, BIN at $675 or best offer, freight shipping possible.

From Castle Rock, Colorado: Atari’s obscure “Warlords” cocktail, ends soon with no bids at $699, freight shipping possible.

From Northridge, California: Mortal Kombat, LPU, BIN at $850 or best offer.

From Staten Island, NY: Ms. Pac-Man at a perfectly reasonable $395 BIN, LPU. New Yorkers should seriously think about this one.

From Coatesville, Pennsylvania: Carn Evil, $799 BIN or best offer, freight shipping possible.

From Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: Galaga — this unit has been featured before, but the price has now been lowered to $550. Freight shipping possible.

From Elgin, Illinois: Groovy Vintage Pac-Man Coffee Cup from England, BIN at only $11.97. Nwaka nwaka!
