I love their cabinets and enjoy the one I have, but I forgot to mention the most annoying thing about Arcade 1up machines to potential buyers: variants. Goddamn variants.
Arcade 1up tends to put out cabinets for various retailers and have different features than the standard version. You don't always know if you're buying the best version and don't know when they'll be releasing a cooler cabinet later on.
Case in point, Marvel Super Heroes.
The regular version: https://arcade1up.com/products/marvel-super-heroes-arcade-cabinet
-Standard cabinet with blue trim
The Special Edition: https://arcade1up.com/products/marvel-cabinet
Differences from the regular version:
-Includes light up marquee
-Upgraded with Sanwa joysticks and buttons
-Limited to 8,000
-Certificate of authenticity included with number out of 8,000
-Exclusive riser artwork
The HSN version: https://www.hsn.com/products/arcade1up-marvel-full-size-5-ft-arcade-machine-and-rise/9327003
-Similar cabinet to the regular version with blue trim....
-But has light up marquee....
-And light up buttons, which isn't included in any other version
-Though not limited like the Special Edition, chances are there's less of the HSN version out there
In a similar fashion, there is a regular version of Mortal Kombat and one released with Costco with a light up marquee (and I think a stool comes in the package).
