Quoted from Rarehero:

Apparently the SF2 one has a missing sound channel.

Yes, I believe mame emulates the sound in stereo, the A1U has a single speaker, and I don’t think the machine is converting stereo to mono

Quoted from benheck:

I'd like to apologize for making that divorce joke as it triggered politics in this topic.

Is that what passes for politics these days, it just seems like gibberish.

Quoted from Rarehero:

Correct. There's a simple fix. Just have to bridge a tiny solder point between two points on the board. Apparently, the board can support stereo, they have traces in place, but only added components for mono.

I noticed that the character select noises weren't coming out for the 1st player. I just assumed it was missing something in the software, not an extra speaker as I wasn't even playing with a second player. So the left channel was gone, but the right one worked. Should have been something they should have addressed.

Simple fix for us who like to fix pinball machines, but I'm not sure how Single Mom would handle it.

Thanks i would pick one up in a minute if it wasnt so far, the highland store is a little over an hour away. If they still have one on saturday i will make the drive.

#2156 2 years ago

They have a bunch at the Westland target. $174, picked up the street fighter but they also have the asteroids for the same price.

#2157 2 years ago

I also stopped by the Westland Target they had 13 street fighters and about 12 Asteroids left as of 3:30 today

Here is Brickseek for Asteroids at Target.

Looks like some stores have it for $105, but most of them $174

Remember, don't tell any store employees the clearance price !!!!!!!!!

#2159 2 years ago

Damn it - every single Store within 30 miles of me is OOS
For both SF2
and Asteroids

How's the height? They seem like they a super short, I know there's the riser as well

I actually like the height without the riser. I have an Ikea chair that I picked up a few years ago that's perfect height. It's an office chair and was like $12. It's adjustable height, but works perfectly for these at the lowest it can go. Has caster wheels so I can scoot between machines.

They posted a new video of the upgraded spinner for the Asteroids / Tempest cabinet on FB: https://www.facebook.com/glen.planamento/videos/3011717802187286/

Should be available on Amazon within a week for about $50.

it's blocked! maybe private to the group?

Quoted from MotorCityMatt:

If you tell an employee that something cool is on mega clearance, they buy them all for themselves and sell them on CL or to friends - now you don't get one.

Never tell the employee the price, just quietly buy it and go on your way.

Yeah, you probably have to belong to the "official" fan club group to view it. He was holding the assembly in his hand and it spun for about 16 seconds with one good twist.

I watched a YouTube video a couple years ago where this guy went to Walmart stores bought up most of the popular name brand toys that are on clearance, then resold them on amazon for full price. The ROI was pretty decent for the work involved. The barrier for entry was also pretty low, he started with a couple hundred dollars and a good knowledge of what toys were hot enough to resell reasonably quickly.

Grills and Unlocked phones are both popular Wallmart employee hording.

A $1000 grill will get clearanced for $99, and then the employees buy them all and put them on CL for $500 NIB.

Galaga cabinets on clearance at a Walmart in Sterling, VA for $74.99

Cuz this is what it looks like...

There was another display... and none there either... but eventually found one orphaned

#2174 2 years ago

There was a local toy store in the next town that had a Gauntlet in stock marked at $599.

Obviously bought it at Walmart and is waiting to prey on the last minute shopper/soccer mom w/$$$.

It's called retail arbitrage. If you've ever gotten something from Amazon with a bar code sticker over the original UPC that's how it was sourced. You also get Amazon's super cheap UPS rates to send what you find to a warehouse. There's apps where you can scan a UPC in store and see how much you'd make per item. Just because something isn't selling in one store and needs to be cleared doesn't mean nobody wants it just not enough in that area.

#2176 2 years ago

There's a stack at my local Walmart with 6 SF and 1 gauntlet cabinets left. They're still $399 cdn. About $300 usd with current currency conversion

#2177 2 years ago

Apologies if someone has already mentioned this. A new version of Groovy Game Gear's Turbotwist spinner has been built to work with these Arcade 1up machines!

I saw it listed on Brickseek when searching my area, so I wasn't actually in the store. Did you find one?

#2179 2 years ago

Wallmart has Centipede for $199 and $179 at seemingly every location around me, so this might finally be the end for those who want the vertical screen :

Damn! My mother in law lives there. I may have to have her stop by! lol

So why are these being cleared out? Was this whole deal a bust or what?

It was a Wallmart top 20 Christmas toy, so they sold like crazy.

New models are coming out...

Each title is a “one run then done” item. These need to get out of the way. Final fight should be coming out any week now, golden tee should be here by May.

Just ordered 2, so well see if you're correct. Blaming you if they dont work.

Have we determined if these work/fit in the volcano bases yet?

Looks like it will be 100 bucks or more once all the options and shipping are added. That’s a lot of money to spend on one of these cabinets. I still might do it, though.

Isn’t there another spinner that someone is working on making for these games? Has anyone heard an update on that? I thought I heard that one would be less expensive.

#2191 2 years ago

Nope. Doesnt work. Tried to figure out a way to hack them together, but nothing seemed like it would work.

Yeah $100 on JUST the spinner is nuts. I am thinking about just building one out of an old computer mouse like back in the day. Costs about $9

#2193 2 years ago

#2198 2 years ago

If you don't want to pre-order he said they should be available on amazon "shortly", apparently he's doing the pre-order because of some challenges with getting the amazon store up and running in a timely fashion. I'm #29 on the list.
