We’re always surprised by how many different variations there are for Street Fighter. It seems as if right when we’re on the cusp of collecting all the art for the marquees, another request comes in for Alpha Beta Zero Plus Four Gamma Zeda. We were more than happy to help one of our clients create the art for SF Alpha Zero 2, and feel like it came out pretty well! Check it out in our store HERE.
Someone finally did it! A mini lightbox for the mini marquees we send out. Richard has done quite a few light boxes with the marquees we produce, and they always look cherry! Only this time, he went above and beyond and created the cutest little light box in the history of light boxes! Thanks again for the photos Richard!
The ever so rare Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters arcade marquee is finally in our collection. Rare game on the tail end of the Atari streak, this marquee just did not pop up in any fashion for us until now. Check it out in our store HERE, and peep a video of the game play below, which we must say, looks pretty fun.
So, we found a super awesome bartop Neo Geo custom build. Not sure how exactly he did it, but it looks amazing. We have messaged the creator to see if he could give us a rundown of the build, waiting to hear back.
A lot of people have asked us what the difference is between translite and plexi, so we put together this video to educate people on the matter.
We’ve had this product for a while now, but just thought we would spread the word. After getting quite a few requests for moves lists and instruction stickers, we have created a generic product our customers can purchase. Please check with us first to see if the art is available for the desired item, then order the item if available. Check it out under our “Other Products” section in our store HERE.
All right peoples. It’s been a while. I would put this mystery marquee at about a 2/5, not that difficult. Super awesome 90s game, president’s daughter kidnapped, yadda yadda.

Super excited to share this one with everyone. Richard put together one of the cleanest light boxes we have seen thus far. The candy apple green is fantastic, and from the looks of it, an LED strip with remote allows for easy on/off action. Add a little whisky into the mix, and you’ve got yourself a good time. Our shop prefers Basil Hayden personally, but in any case, cheers to Richard’s good work!
It’s pretty rare to see a 6 slot in good condition. Most of the time they’ve been beat up and in Keith’s case, it was no different. From powder coating the control panel, to replacing the LED displays, it seems he’s done an amazing job bringing this guy back from the dead. Also gotta love the nice and tidy shock box colletion. Check his story below:
First name or gamer tag: Keith
Years collecting: 1
Rarest game: I don’t think I have any truly rare games yet, but Waku Waku 7 was the toughest pick up so far.
Favorite game: Metal Slug 3
Anything about the Neo Geo world: I’ve wanted a Neo Geo system since I saw the ads for the AES in GamePro and the MVS machines in the arcades in the 90’s. Last year I decided it was time and began to look for a 1-slot board to consolize. It seemed like the smart, lowest barrier to entry. During my search, a big red 6-slot cab just happened to show up on Craigslist and I couldn’t resist. Of course, I had no idea what I was doing with an arcade cabinet…
We always like seeing alternative uses to the marquees. This one comes in from Johnny D. A very creative use for displaying some badass Terminator 2 memorabilia. From the looks of it, a color changing LED and some classic VHS and DVD cases. Thanks for the pics Johnny.
