  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Currently with the inlaws in the Orlando, FL area and the wife and they all don't appreciate my 3 empty cabinets. One day I planned to MAME them or something, but I don't have the space, money or time to do so for at least another year or two. If I ever decide to start my arcade hobby (never got past the empty cabinet stage for at least 10 years), I'll start over.

The cabinets are:

Dragon's Lair
Punch-Out
Donkey Kong

Let me know before I throw em on craigslist. Thanks!

If I was closer I'd take them all . You should keep the DK cab, just use it for storage of all the MAME parts.

As for value, hard to say. I've seen empty DKs go for $25, I've seen em go for $200
No matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites us all.

Throw them on the villagebbs buy/sell forum. It is florida specific and has a bunch of collectors.
