A1Up Star Wars $299 at Brandsmart EXPIRED
« on: August 14, 2020, 06:57:32 am »
On sale through this weekend for $299 at Brandsmart.  Lowest retail I've seen besides the near-mythical $50 Walmart clearances.

https://www.brandsmartusa.com/arcade1up/240588/star-wars-home-arcade-cabinet-with-riser.htm

Bestbuy will match with free shipping if there is a Brandsmart in your local area...

Late update:  per a Reddit poster, BestBuy is honoring the price from well outside of Brandsmart's footprint; like the other side of the country away from it.  Worth a try, but I think the sale expires tonight (Sunday 8/16).

UPDATE: Now back to $399 on 8/17/20.

The reviews on them seem decent.

Yeah, I've seen even some serious vintage arcade snobs at KLOV complementing this one.

I like mine. It's pretty solid. Bought it at the same price a few months ago. This is the only 1up that I like.

Getting closer to my target price.  If they drop to 200 or below I'll pull the trigger on this one only.  I mean you can't even get a yoke for that price.

Looks like you linked the ad instead of the cockpit video  --

We've released a yoke adapter so you can replace the OEM plastic Arcade1UP star wars yoke (starts to get jumpy after about 8 months of play) with a real star wars yoke--either the alan-1 repo with aluminum gears or the Atari OEM versions.

goto alan-1.com and see more.

Installation instructions are found here
