Thanks to Dana for the pics of our ArcadeMarquee.com Space Invaders control panel overlay installation. Looks super clean!
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!
Star Wars Trilogy arcade has one of those super cool marquees that juts up above the game. Which is awesome, but also very easy to break. You’ll be rolling that sucker under a door and then all of a sudden *POP* your marquee is in a hundred pieces. We decided to design a marquee that simply fits in the marquees space. Check it out in our store HERE, and check out a video below for that sweet sweet nostalgia we all desire:
PS, holy crap this guy playing is friggin good!
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.”
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.
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.
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.
