Holy franken-art! That is definitely a Vigolix inspired cab, but a few liberties were taken.

Well, at least there is some refreshing honesty on this one. "Nephew-built artwork" Yeah, that I believe. Others highlight that as "Artist designed custom work". Top half feels like it belongs in an elementary school, but I do like the hadoukan wave hurdling towards what looks like a stegosaurus. Now we know what killed the dinosaurs.

I'm scratching my head over how he is complaining about settling for sanwa joysticks. To me that is probably the highlight, other than the fact he has a 4-way restrictor on one joystick of what should be a fighting cab, (at least it looks like a fighter cab from the bottom down). Was he hoping for gold plated sticks?

If he let the kid do the art for the whole thing I would have been on board. The kid's artwork is better than the ---smurfy--- collage by a mile.

That's probably why his nephew doesn't want the cab either.

Come for the cab.  Stay and get murdered.

I don't completely hate it.
This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

They edited the body, though in either case I see no complaint about the joysticks, just miscomprehension about them. P2 stick is too far away from its button set, and too close to that of P1.  Why did they make it a wide-body and use a 4:3 monitor? Three-hundred isn't bad, though.
