Great idea to offer a riser for 1Up cabinets - you'd be getting very close to standard height, and it looks very sturdy too.

I agree, lots of love for the original cabs - I'm very glad I got into the scene while cabs were actively sold at Starburst, here, and on Kijiji. I'd definitely have my work cut out if I started to try and collect classic games today - I'd be driving further and paying more, so I would definitely be considering a 1Up in that situation.

I see that there's 8 themed cabs out now. I'm particularly intrigued by the Star Wars offering - very curious how it will look and feel once I can try one out:

I preordered my 1up Cabs: TMNT and Marvel. I've always wanted to get a real deal Konami X-men cabinet (4 player would he keen) but the price tag is STEEP! I think these will fill that desire as its 2-3 games and the footprint is smaller for us who don't have 2,000 square feet to have a proper game room. Lol!

Right now EB Games has the lowest price in these new cabinets, Amazon and Walmart have listings too, but seem more expensive or not available for preorder yet.

Cut&paste from my posts in the 1up thread in Anything Goes:

I picked up the pacman and the centipede at auctionmaxx for cheaper since the finishes were a little roughed up. Put together the pac but not the centipede yet. Also put a 60-in-1 i wasn't using in the pac, they sell adapters for the monitors but i just decased an existing vga 17" monitor i had, plus this way i get ms.pacman, junior, and many other games available. I always wanted a yellow pac and came to the conclusion that i wasn't going to find one anywhere near me or i'd have to spend too much on an old midway cab that needed a lot of work so this was my best option. Now if only i could find some cheap risers -- 70 is too much for basically a small box. Will probably just get those ikea end tables for $10
--------------------------
The only issue I saw was the front panel that goes to the bottom, the one that's black and has the names of the 2 games on it that *really* should be yellow if you ask me, had a couple of scraped scuffs near the top going down an inch or so. That entire black area isn't paint but a decal -- the scuffs aren't very noticeable when assembled since its directly under the control panel but I 'fixed' it just by taking a black marker and filling in the scuffs. Someone went through the assembly instructions and put checkmarks with a pen next to all the parts you inventory when you first get it -- whether this was AuctionMaxx themselves checking that everything was there or the person who first bought it and returned it, I don't know. I noticed that the main boxes will sometimes have rips in them. I'm pretty happy with the purchase since it was less than 200 Canadian but I can see why people will put in a sanwa 4-way joystick with a stiff 4-pound spring instead of what they give you. The control panel is all pre-assembled so you don't have to mount the controls but I was able to open it up easily to mount the 60-in-1 in it. I haven't opened up the centipede box yet but when I do I'll post pics of any scratches or whatever. I drive a small car and both flatpacks fit OK with the backseats down although I don't think there would've been room for a third. As for assembly time, set aside at least 3 hours. Also they don't recommend a powerdriver to screw things in but i used one no problem.

When do you expect these games to be available for purchase? Yes, I agree that size and price of original 4 player cabs makes these offerings an interesting alternative.

Thanks for the cross-post Allan, I admittedly have a bias towards the Coin-Op forum and don't always check the others, so it's appreciated. Less than $200 is a nice price range for these.

There are some really interesting possibilities here for tweaking/customization with the ability to swap out-in parts and such like using a 60-in-1. Absolutely please post some photos of the games once you have the Centipede assembled, that would be great.

On the subject of the cabs and risers, I wanted to share this YouTube video where Gamer Greg compares an Atari cabaret and upright with the 1UP with riser. It's nearly an identical form factor with the cabaret, which I like. The one caveat I'd add is that the CP level will vary from cabaret style to another, I found the Atari slightly higher compared to my Ms Pac-Man mini, for example.

According to EB Games & Amazon, one or two of the cabinets will be released November 11th, and then the others will be released November 24th.

PS. Walmart has PREORDERS available for these cabinets and they seem to offer the same/similar prices!

Just out of curiosity; does anyone know where i could get a splitter for the ribbon cables that come with the Arcade 1up cabinets, i am looking to find a way to link up 2 Street Fighter 2 cabinets to run off 1 board so it's like the head-2-head style of cabinets as seen here:

https://truth.bahamut.com.tw/s01/201303 ... f1b773.JPG

https://truth.bahamut.com.tw/s01/201303 ... 79cc9d.JPG

Except using the Arcade 1up cabinets, so it looks similar to this:



It looks like its a 30-pin Ribbon cable in the A-1Up cabs, but i am wondering if there is a cable that has an extra connector in the middle of the cable, or even a double/splitter at one of the connectors

After a quick search, i found an Extension cable for the LCD(?) cable:

I cant quite make out the power supply(?) in a video on how to replace the PCB, its either a 5-pin cable, or 8 pin, it has 3 wires going to it (Red, Black & Yellow) i presume its Positive, Negative and Ground.
