  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Looking to complete my game room with some wall art. Would like some neon or LED lighted art because I have some plugs that are high up so it would fit nicely. Anyone purchase some for their game room or man cave? Best places online and recommendations? Thanks!

I have one like Tichgamer's, except it's the ATARI name and logo, in green. They're etched perspex lit by LEDs, and give a great neon-like effect. Also from ebay. The seller also had Nintendo and SEGA ones.

I can make those. I have done several as night lights for my friends' kids. I can quote you some prices if you like. Mostly just to cover shipping and materials.



It is hard to get a good representation of them with a pic.

I laser etch and cut the acrylic. I buy the base from a website. I used to make the base myself, but it is much easier  to buy it. I can ship it wherever you want. You just have to pay the shipping and materials cost.

Could you do one that says "Insert Tacky Logo Here"?

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

I will let Tyler know that you disapprove of his logo choice. He is five. :P
