Completely Restored Vintage STAR WARS Video Arcade Game

/ 6 years ago

bwagner5150 you sly fox you. Check out this completely restored vintage Star Wars Arcade Game. Here are the specs.

You are bidding on a fully restored, vintage Atari Star Wars upright video arcade game. This game is in as close to new condition as you will ever find, and has just been restored by a picky, admittedly anal collector. Everything is fully-working, and is nothing short of beautiful. Nothing but the best parts in the business have been used.The cabinet is a brand new John Gerlach / Boulder Arcades melamine-protected cabinet that was precision computer CNC-milled to the exact specifications of the original. It looks perfect and brand new like the machine just came out of the box, and is identical to the original. All new side art, front art, marquee art, control panel art and controller yoke art has been installed at a cost of several hundred dollars. This is the good stuff from Phoenix Arcades, using the original silk screens from Atari. All new t-molding, leg lifters, leg lifter plates, and t-nuts have been installed. The controller and handles have been stripped, retextured, and repainted, and new silk-screened art was applied. The vertical coin door was stripped, retextured, and repainted, and new matching door locks and coin insert bulbs were installed. Its Wells Garder 6100 monitor was professionally repaired and recapped, along with all new chassis transistors for a long life.

Additionally:

Comes with the original coin bucket and coin mechanisms, and can be set for either freeplay or quarters.
Comes with a copy of the original owner’s manual and technical schematics on DVD.”

VINTAGE ORIGINAL ATARI 1980s TEMPEST ARCADE GAME SIDE ART

/ 7 years ago

classic-arcades is selling a strange piece of video game history and art. This is an used piece of panel artwork for the Tempest Arcade Machine by Atari. I’m not sure what exactly you can do with this but sure is cool to own. I guess if you were an ass you could peal it and stick to your wall like a Fathead. But my suggestion is peal it and mount it on a some kind of board.

E.T. Wall Hang

/ 7 years ago

Besides Cheetahmen, I think it’s pretty safe to say that Atari’s E.T. is the worst video game ever made. Supposedly a million copies were dumped into a landfill to get rid of the incredible amount of garbage that was produced. raidovermoscow‘s E.T. wall hang and display is a cool piece of video game history though…but I wonder how many of these were produced being that there were millions of copies of the game produced. Regardless, a very cool piece.

Atari Game Lot BIN (plus two systems …)

/ 7 years ago

Here’s a pretty sweet lot. It’s funny, I know the seller, dean.parrish. He’s a pretty young kid. I’m guessing these Atari games are twice as old as he is. But for $60, it’s hard to pass up. AND, he’s offering to throw in two systems, “AS IS.” He can’t vouch that they work. It happens. I find it’s funny that he doesn’t mention WHICH Atari system these are for, but looking at the cartridges, I’d guess 2600. Go get this one. Canyon Bomber. So good.

President Ronnie got his dumbass captured by Ninjas. Only you two Bad Dudes can save him. arcocoffee is selling one of the best side scrolling steroid induced fighting games of all time. Released 1988 Bad Dudes exploded on the scene kicking ass. You don’t see games like this anymore. It’s like an 32 bit Chuck Norris movie.

Some old school rare-ness!

/ 8 years ago

Thought I would post up some rare old school games, old school to me is Atari and older since I grew up on Nintendo and forward. I remember playing some Atari when I was a kid but the first game I ever played was Kung-Fu for the NES so anything before that is “old school” in my book.

Atlantis II
Posted by: chessguy2002
This seems to be one of the more rare Atari games to ever have been “released”! I say released, because it was only given out to 4 contest winners! It comes in the same case as Atlantis so it seems like there are a lot of fakes out there so this auction seems to have the most legit supporting documents to go with it. Check out the other images to see all the documentation. Here is a write up about the game from www.atariage.com “This is a special contest version of Atlantis. It was sent to the high scorers of the Defend Atlantis contest so that they could determine the top four scorers. The top four players from Atlantis II would be flown to Bermuda for an Atlantis shoot-out and a chance to win $10,000. While the game graphics are the same, it is much faster and fewer points are awarded for hits, making the game much more challenging. The actual scoring graphics are slightly different as well.”

Matterhorn
Posted by: zz11zz
The person that posted this one up says it is extremely rare but I cannot seem to find much info on it. It is an Atari 400 game which was one of the less popular Atari systems out there. I have never even played Atari 400 or 800 but would like to try one out sometime. Seems like any info I come across of this game is someone trying to sell it so who knows if it is rare or not…

Obscure Atari

/ 8 years ago

I thought I would post up about some old obscure Atari game this time around. 2 of which I would like to have and I will start out with those…


(picture used is different than auction photo)

Texas Chainsaw Massacre! Yeah, they made a TCM video game. I have never played this and I am sure it probably isn’t very good but I would like to have this just as a collectible piece. The company that put this out, Wizard Video Games, only put out 2 games.  This one and…

Halloween! Wizard Video Games was looking to put some known horror icons into the video game market. Once gain, I am sure this isn’t very impressive but I still want it!

Another movie property, Alien the game! I am a little “young” to have played Atari back when it was first out so I thought the only movie related game was the huge failure known as ET but looks like they had at least 3 other movie titles as well as…

A comic book? Nope, this is X-Man which is clearly labeled as an “Adult Video Game Cartridge”! Another thing that I had no idea about. I knew Panesian put out some bootleg adult titles for the NES but had no idea they had “adult” game for the Atari! I bet those pixels were quite offensive!

Here is what the listing says about X-Man: “You’re “X-Man” … the macho super-stud of the year! A “Sexy Blonde: with a body that doesn’t quit is waiting behind the door to satisfy your every fantasy. You’ve got the equipment, you’re excited and ready to give her what she desires. All you’ve got to do is get through that door and do your stuff. Sounds easy? Wrong! Coming at you are the “Crabs,” with their claws ready to tear your privates apart. Next come the “Scissors,” whose sharp blades can cut off your manhood. And last are the “Teeth,” who snap with a vice-like grip that will leave more than just marks. Get the picture? But this Sexy Blonde is worth it. And you’re a man who’s ready for challenge and action. If you’ve got the stuff to avoid your attackers and get through the door, you’ll score in more ways than one! Remember that behind the door awaits your sexy surprise, and bonus points as well. See how far you can go and how much you can score as you take the X-Man Challenge.”

Sounds like a blast!
