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.”
The Narc marquee presented a slight issue with scanning. Originally the marquee was actually part of the bezel glass, which makes for difficult scanning. We were finally able to capture it and create a nice reproduction for all those collectors that need one for a conversion cabinet. There’s nothing quite like blowing up a crack head with a rocket launcher, and then taking their hypodermic needles and cash. Gotta love the 80s. As always, check below for a play through, and click HERE for the product link.
80s marquees with live characters are some of our favorites. They represent everything that was awesome about the 80s: over the top hair, bad acting, and cheesiness beyond belief. Rollergames is no exception. Forgot we even sold this one until someone recently ordered it. Check it out in our store HERE, and a video of the game play below:
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.”
One of our favorite arcades growing up was Virtual On. Out of all the games in the arcade, this one made you feel the most bad ass. Sitting in the cockpits with two joysticks and a bunch of buttons that did cool stuff, can’t get much better than that. Never played it on the port for a Blast City cabinet, but I’m sure it’s just as fun. Check out the marquee in our store HERE, and a playthrough below:
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.
