Dungeons and Dragons Arcade Light Box By Keith

Had a customer recently send us images of this Dungeons and Dragons Light box and it looks great! Also, we must note that Dungeons and Dragons is the best 4 player side scroller of all time. So much replay value! Thank you to Keith S. for the photos.

Explanation below from the man himself:

“I used one 1X10 inch 8 foot long pine board. And 3/4 inch plywood piece for the back. I cut 3 pieces 2 and 7/8 wide for the sides and the bottom and one piece 2 and 9/16 wide for the top. I put the sides onto the plywood back using glue and pocket holes. Then glued 1/8 thick plywood 3/16 inch from the top to form a “rail” for the glass and marquee to slide on. Then got strips that protruded 1/8 inch wider than the boards to make a frame to go on the top of the box. Drilled a hole in the back and using U shaped nails to hold it down used a string of 5050 led lights to the back although I think 3850 led would probably work to since I used a good a lot of the strand. Slide a piece of glass along between the frame and the top piece I cut 3/16 inch shorter than the other than the sides and the bottom. Then slid the marquee over the glass piece.”

Raiden Fighters JET Arcade Marquee

Finally found a good scan of Raiden Fighters JET thanks to Lawrence W.

One of the more rare shmup boards, which regularly goes for over $500 on ebay. Probably one of our favorites growing up, but jeez, what a quarter eater. Check out the play through below, and click HERE to buy one in our store.

Josef’s Super Clean 4 Slot – Neo Geo World

This could possibly be one of the cleanest 4 slots we have ever seen. Thanks to Josef for the photos and continued business on the Neo Geo mini marquees.

First name or gamer tag: Josef
Years collecting: 2
Rarest game: Probably Alpha Mission II
Favorite game: Strikers 1945 Plus & Neo Turf Masters
Anything about the Neo Geo world:
Couple of years back I had an arcade cab with a single slot Neo Geo JAMMA board in it and a 161 in 1 multicart. That was the closest I could get playing Neo Geo on original hardware since finding an original Neo Geo cab here in Germany is very hard.
Last year I was finally lucky, found an original Neo Geo Big Red 4 Slot in a German arcade forum and immediately pulled the trigger. The seller told me that the cab is originally from a US military base here in Germany and his friend restored it couple years ago.
It is in great condition, only thing I have done so far was repainting the control panel and swapping the sticks and buttons for new ones.
I consider myself very lucky and proud to have such a great cabinet in my collection!

-Josef

Thanks again Josef!

Matt’s Big Blue In All It’s Glory

Something about a clean Dynamo CPS2 Big Blue that is just sooo pretty. Matt’s cabinet recently installed ArcadeMarqueeDotCom’s Big Blue marquee and plexi and well, look at it! In addition to the clean cabinet and marquee, Super Street Fighter II Turbo is an excellent game, probably one of the best fighters from the era. Kudos to you Matt, and thanks for the photos. Check out the marquee and plexi combo in our store HERE.

Pandora’s Box Marquees Arcade Marquee

With the popularity of Pandora’s Box, we have created another arcade marquee specifically for the conversions out there. Just remember, if you have a unique arcade and it is in good shape, please consider keeping it original as opposed to converting. Chances are it will be worth more in the future, and converting cool dedicated cabinets is almost always a damn shame.

Check the marquee out in our store HERE.

Out Run Arcade Poster Light Box

Had this request from Steve S. Was a bit strange due to the size being poster as opposed to marquee, but thought it would be fun to indulge. Turned out awesome from the looks of it. Steve threw it in what looks like a commercial display light box, and is sure to be displayed in a cool location at his place. Cheers Steve!
