So I went to Auctionmaxx to see the place in person... wow... I was expecting something along the lines of a "Factory Direct" set up, but this was even more depressing than that... I don't know if I would even try to get anything from there under normal conditions.

My experience at auctionmaxx wasn't *bad* although it was a little confusing. Inside the small & busy front area they had a group of computers where you could get the item number from their website and order it with your credit card, but for some reason once I registered a website account and my CC they make you wait a few days before you can use it to order something (??) so I just took the item number to the counter with people there, they processed it and using debit was an option to pay so i just paid for the cabinets that way. Then you go around the side and show the people at the warehouse entrance your order receipt and they bring the item out to you. I guess one other problem is that they only have a small amount of parking for such a busy place.

I have been keeping my ear to the ground on the Arcade-1up community, and word on the street has it that IKEA sells some decent end-tables that can handle about 60-70 pounds, and make decent risers as long as you are ok with the aesthetics. I believe this is the table that they refer to... most of the modders are form the US, so it may have the same name(s) but lower quality.

hope that helps.


I had a 111 lbs 30inch widescreen Tube TV on a LACK coffee table with no issues. That is the same 4 legs as the LACK Side table.

No I went a week after they had a shipment of 10+ come in, and they almost sold out over night. By the time I got to the physical store just to check it out they had 2 open/used cabinets left and I was too depressed from the sight that I didn't even try to bid or buy them. Also the only 2 that were left were Pacman and even at 50-75% off it's not worth it for 2 versions of almost the same game. If it was Rampage, Final Fight or any of the 12-in-1 cabinets/cocktails then I would hop on. If anything I may do the folding "homemade wallcade" of the 12-in-1 cabinets.

Yea, I was confused by all the clothing and small appliances and... well it felt like a value village or salvation army donation centre... just sad. Then again people could potentially steal from them so I don't blame them for keeping big-ticket items like TVs and the like in the warehouse.

Those seem like the standard prices across the board. But thanks for showing us that The Brick is selling these!

P.S. I got my TMNT cabinet last thursday and set it up Saturday night! It's pretty sweet! The instant I started playing I imagined I was back at the Chuck-E-Cheese in Etobicoke! Cowabunga!

Also, does anyone have any tips for me on how to get one of the Limited Edition Marvel Arcade 1up units across the border without paying the $100 duty and tax on it?

Why does everyone keep saying that to me?? By the way, I got mine from Walmart so, they are really on the ball, or just trying to get rid of these things because they probably take up tons of inventory space.

And Walmart has also shipped my "emergency" Marvel Cabinet out 2-3 weeks early (depending if you follow the Walmart release date or the EBgames release date) so that's another interesting thing.

And apparently i cant add my photos because the board quota has been reached... :? :?

Say can anyone confirm if the listing from Amazon.ca for the Marvel cabinet is real? From the photo it looks like the Limited Edition Marvel cabinet, but the description has the item # as 7661 which is the standard blue version. I hope it's the Limited Edition version because I have been bugging A1up for a long time about Canadian shipping.
