We sold a couple batches of marquees a couple months ago to a Canadian fellow and was pleasantly surprised to see he came up with some amazing light boxes! Greg Lobb operates the website Mosquitoworkshop.com and has some awesome stuff to look at. Be sure to check out his work there, or @mosquitoworkshop on Instagram.
This beauty comes compliments of one of our awesome customers by the name of Chuck. He recently restored a Gauntlet Dark Legacy arcade marquee with our dedicated size. Looks great, many thanks Chuck! Check it out in our store HERE, and watch a crazy play through below:
Ataxx is one of those games that we have never seen on route, but looks like an extremely fun game with high replay value. We mailed this out to Kelly, who put together what looks like an awesome arcade. Cheers, Kelly. Thanks for the pic! Check out below for a video of the game, and click HERE to purchase the marquee.
We came across a marquee that we had never seen recently. Had to look it up to figure out what was going on. Apparently Tournament Arkanoid was the successor to Arkanoid, but for some reason Romstar thought “tournament” might be an exciting was to say “two”. Check it out in our store HERE, and a video down below for a super cool cocktail version of the game.
One of our customers was able to attend Unicon a couple weeks ago and had the awesome idea to purchase some marquees to get signed by original voice actors. Thanks for the photos Ken, I’m sure those marquees will make great additions to your man cave!
Had one of our customers submit a custom order for these bad little babies. Super cool Japanese style cabinets, which we have never seen before. Congrats on the awesome little cabinet Chuck! Also, Chuck has allowed us to sell his design in our store, link coming soon.
Had a cool custom come in for a customer. Too bad they never came out with a Fight Club arcade game. Closest thing would probably have to be Pit Fighter, hah. Thanks to Wesleybeth for the pics!
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.”
For one reason or another, every 1945 marquee we’ve ever seen has either been cropped down a considerable amount, or printed on crappy paper and then laminated. We FINALLY found a good clean full sized marquee and very quickly scanned and cleaned it. One of the best shoot em ups of all time. Check it out in our store HERE, and peep below for a play through:
