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, Indiana: Dungeons and Dragons: Shadow Over Mystara, BIN at $875, freight shipping possible.

From Grass Valley, California: Ms. Pac-Man Stand-Up, BIN at $420, LPU.

From Peru, Indiana: Atari’s Road Burners (not to be confused with Atari’s Road Blasters), freight shipping possible, BIN at $975 or best offer.

From Buena Park, California: Virtua Fighter, BIN at $375 or best offer, LPU. Until they make Lego Fighter, this is the closest visual thing we have.

From Hagerstown, Maryland: Virtua Cop 2, BIN at $325 or best offer, freight shipping possible. Virtua Cops are for breaking up the Virtua Fighters.

From Waterford, Michigan: Hydro Thunder, BIN at $749, freight shipping possible.

From Fargo, North Dakota: Galaga, BIN at $450, LPU. This one should be easy, but…..sorry. I can’t think of any quotes from the movie that apply to this auction.

From Pomona, California: Vintage Original Ms. Pac-Man Hand Puppet, no current bids at $19.99. Freight shipping possible.
