The Tron arcade is one of the most iconic games from the 80s. Everything about the cabinet and art was extremely well done. Gameplay was and is mediocre, but that doesn’t stop today’s collectors from paying big bucks to own one. At auction Tron’s generally go for over $2,000, and project cabinets can go for over $1000 (*Captain’s Auction Anaheim bidding data). Check out the marquee in our store HERE, and a video below for the playthrough.
Thanks to Oscar for this order. Open Ice custom cabinet with great looking artwork.
Really happy with the way this one came out. Meng wanted a Mortal Kombat style marquee so we were able to piece together some graphics to make it happen.
We never really thought to use these marquees for blinders, but Nicolas did. Check out his game room, and massive amount of marquees from ArcadeMarquee.com. Lookin good Nicolas!
We always like seeing custom builds at Arcade Marquee Dot Com. This one really resonated with us because we used to play Battle Toads a ton as kids as well. Check out Cody’s build with the short blurb below:
“Its my first build so its nowhere near perfect, it doesn’t have T-molding because I used half inch plywood and I don’t have that tool to cut the groove along the edges yet, but I’m still proud of myself lol, I remember playing battletoads at a roller rink as a kid, and its only 3 player on arcade, didnt have $4k so i decided to make a cabinet myself (one that would fit through my door), its just an old PC and some Christmas lights for the marquee at the moment.”
Burger Time was one of those games that we never really saw growing up in the 90s. I would assume it was because it was not as profitable to route as say, a Ms. Pacman or Galaga. Now a days though, this is one of the more desirable games on the market. We often see it go for over $1k, and upwards of $2k at Captain’s Auction in Anaheim. As for the art, there’s really nothing more terrifying than a 6 foot sausage with green shoes chasing after you.

Occasionally we will get orders for claw machines. We very much liked the design of Zandy’s, who happens to be a graphic designer. Check it out below, with a small blurb from the creator: Joseph:
“My girlfriend and I are creating our own game room and I am a graphic designer. We bought some vintage arcade games and have brought them back to life with our own look and style.”
We had a great time at NWPAS weekend. Got to see a lot of great games, meet a lot of cool people, and lost pretty bad in the pinball tournaments.
One of our favorite things is always meeting new people. Had the opportunity to print some marquees for Boss Robot Games and a group of youngsters who produced their own shmup called Zatonis. Always good to see the next generation of gamers creating cool stuff.
We thought this one was pretty cool. One of our customers put together some generic Capcom images to get this marquee. Looks absolutely excellent when back lit. Good stuff Gerry!
