For many video game collectors, there is no item more desirable in the whole wide world than their own authentic arcade machine. Run, coward! It’s another 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.
From Lynbrook, New Jersey: Cruis’n World, LPU, BIN at $800 but ends soon with no bids at $575.
From Newburgh, Indiana: Nintendo Playchoice-10, ends soon with no bids at $499, LPU or buyer arranges shipping. Great value: This is the Playchoice-10 that includes the unreleased-on-NES Goonies game, as in what “Goonies II” was a sequel to.
From Cockeysville, Maryland: Area 51, BIN at $375, LPU.
From Northfield, New Jersey: Mortal Kombat 4, BIN at $350, LPU. Unit works but needs some polish.
From Mentor, Ohio: Pac-Man, nice BIN at $333.33, shipping must be arranged by buyer. Unit is said to work but needs unspecified work done.
From Union, New Jersey: Gorf, restored unit, shipping must be arranged by buyer, no current bids at $599. Gorf is “frog” spelled backwards, but that was unintentional.
From Hoffman Estates, Illinois: Space Invaders, shipping must be arranged by buyer, BIN at $650 but ends soon with no bids at $400.
From Huntsville, Alabama: Revolution X, BIN at $549, seller will ship within the US for $180 to $400 and even to Australia for more. This game has become the butt of everyone’s jokes, mostly due to the premise, but someone must want it.
