WOW........thats errr....dreadful.....the wirering looks a mess, and the whole 50's look is just terrible imo. So mnany better things out there to build into an arcade machine/mame cab.

I always wanted to obtain a classic MAC and pop in a small factor motherboard, psu, HDD and try and source 9in LCD TFT (im sure there out there) and have that as a mini mame cab. Im sure its been done somewhere but I just love the mac classic for its looks.

AWESOME !
Does it come with a height and width limit ? As only a midget (2 of them)would be able to sit side by side AND get their knees under this shin shredder.(probably why it was custom built)

NO GOOD

while that is amazingly overpriced, the seller, the attic bug, lives in brigg which is 6 miles from me in scunthorpe. Ive bought a few things off the guy in the past and gone to pick them up and he is a great person, knows his stuff and is a little bit crazy (good crazy mind). But that is just silly, maybe time to email him and have a word lol

I'm still at a loss to this "seller" and it annoys me that everytime I search for an xbox game on ebay you can bet there it is at 3x the price from this idiot - sickyanni.

If you look at his/her completed listings (all items) there are 723 unsold items in the last 15 days compared to like 27 sold. Think most BIN's are around 20p or more to list, even at 20p that's £150 listing fees for the last 15 days. I must be missing something, I really must.

They must be on something as those prices are crazy.

I've only looked at the first page of their listings but £13 (£15 inc p+p) for MadWorld on the Wii and Soul Caliber IV on the 360 for £25 is just ridiculous.

They are also selling dvd's for higher than HMV, what's that all about?
