Always wanted one of these...who doesn’t to be fair. Picked up the cabinet last weekend for just £25...it’s only a few years old and was a pub quiz machine. As it’s a commercial unit it’s really heavy and incredibly sturdy. Stripped the remaining extra bits out, built the front where the controls go (the quiz machine was a touch screen so there wasn’t one), fitted a new screen (that was a bitch), fitted the kit and a sound system, bit of paint, and 4 days later it’s finished and ready to rock.

This thing is awesome!...a thousand games all from the 80’s and 90’s, full two player set up, proper arcade level sound ie loud!

There is something about standing up and ripping into a game, when you can just put your back into it that makes it better.

 

Just makes me want to pop in my "Moving Pictures" cassette from RUSH and crank up some Tom Sawyer!

Yep it’s way cooler with the full on machine, especially on LOUD with a box pumping too :-)

Yup and there’s another even bigger toy on its way :-)
