Only weighs 55 pounds, I bet this thing would look real nice in the place. 2 grand is a lot though, but it has galaga and 2 versions of pac man. Yeah, I know you could make one much cheaper, but it does look cool.

Wow! At that price, I could purchase a couple of different boards, and wire them all in a box I could make myself.

Their prices are way over the top compared to what games actually go for in the real market. But I guess for people who do not know what they are doing, it is worth it. But I have seen pinball machines in extremely good shape for 1/2 of what they are charging.

And $4200 for a skee-ball lane? Give me a break.

LOL I fully expected to hear that. It does look like a classy little unit though. I like these bartop games. I have an Arkanoid already, maybe a mame that I build would be better. I see the kits for sale for cheap too.

I really like the cabinet on that one. My bartop MAME machine definitely weighs more than 55 lbs.

Let me dig some pics up. Right now it is not operational because I had to use its monitor for another machine and I am working on replacing the joystick with one I like more.

Well here is my BYOAC post on it. I can't find the finished pics with some games running.

Now I have some more work to do on it. I am also adding an illuminated ball to the joystick. My current project is a full sized upright with a 25" arcade monitor. Once I get that done, I will resurrect the Green machine.

So, how much could you build a Pac-Man arcade machine for?

Thanks. Needs some TLC now in the current state. Revision 2.0 will be cool though.
I have to finish my current upright project first and then I will focus back on the Green Machine.
