    Default Pac-Man Arcade (Not to Scale?)

    Saw this game for sale while skimming eBay ...



    Then I saw it while standing next to another game ...



    Hah! Mini-me! Of course, closer reading uncovered:

    "5 Classic Arcade Games: Pac-Man - Galaxian - Rally-X - DigDug - Bosconian!"

    Also, auction does not include television.

    Other than that, it's a real Pac-Man cabinet!

    Wow, that's short. You'd need a stool to play on it.

    I don't believe he killed any cabinets in making that. Both of those auctions are running the Namco 5-in-1 joystick controller dealies, that can be bought from toy stores & gaming stores for $20, controller parts from Happs, and replacement overlays, not actual cabinet. The first auction could be a cut down cabinet, but that may of been custom built too, because it houses a tv. It's amazing how much some of these sell for, when you consider how cheaply they are made.

    I think he was referring to the fact that the second one is using a vintage control panel.

    And I agree VGA, it's amazing how $20 joystick + $20 wood = hundreds of dollars.

    In a way you really gotta hand it to em. If they can make the money doing it, I can't blame them. Hell this might be a way for me to save some cash and get that sit-down Star Wars I want I love how this guy left the original Jakk's joystick poking out the side of the Ms Pac panel.
