LOL tell me about it... but the problem is.. people are buying!

I'm frustrated with these blasts already - I am seeing what Joey can do (if anything). If not, they're going straight back on GT and I'll let someone else deal with the headaches :D

It seems to me that at least part of the problem is a few people making a concerted effort to drive up prices by asking what seems like too much. I know you need a buyer for it to be effective, but if person x asks $2k for a blast city and then when person y is looking to move one on, they're liable to ask closer to $2k than what they paid.

The increase is really visible in relation to blasts and egret IIs, although maybe that's just because they're the cabs I've keep an eye out for.

The only way to beat it, is to not buy it unfortunately. But like you said @Nimmers, there’ll always be that one guy with deep pockets ruining the perceived value.

I personally will never pay more than 1k for any candy cab period. But then there will be another spectrum of cheap ass people who always expecting a bargain fully working candy cab for less than $400, probably lying to themselves about the real perceived value of the cab. It's free market and the law of supply and demand are applied to everyone here. But you are right, there are always some guys with deep pocket willingly to pay inflated price for candy cab, thus effectively raised the price ceiling for the candy cab in australia. Given that the retro gaming and arcade resurgence, price will keep going up from now on.

I'd pay 1.5k for an aero city that doesn't need any chassis repairs :)

But the reality is, I need to most likely pay 3k for it lol.

Given my very fortunate previous purchases, my expectation of price is very different from what they're being sold at.

As djcalle has said, you just have to be able to move on them quickly.. I've been lucky enough where the sellers have kept their word on me.. Very often the seller says to me "you know how many people have offered me more than what I was asking just to get it" (happened with my last three purchases - astro, noir and blasts)

I don't think it's about deep pockets so much as it is just about changing markets... It's the same with every other hobby I'm in.

Things get less common, prices go up, people pay more for things because they're harder to find. Then there's always different groups of people who hang around and complain about it.... You have your 10+ year old collectors who were around when things were on every street corner and you could buy them for next to nothing, then you have several other groups of people that have come along over the recent years, and they complain about rising prices as well. Then you have your newcomers who have just recently come around and they only know current prices and they want the items they want and are willing to pay what the market is asking.

I'm not having a dig at anyone, I was collecting and trading arcade 2005-2010 pretty heavily and i remember how cheap you could buy things. I was buying AES consoles with 10+ games for $200-$300... many times over. Boxes of MVS carts... i'm talking 30-40 at a time for a few hundred dollars. Shipping was the real killer. Now look at mvs cart prices.

Dzhay has a good point though, people start asking stupid high prices for things, and it drives up perceived values. It's a great sales tactic and it's been in use across most hobbies, especially lately. Still, i keep hearing people saying that candy cabs are out there and available...

I don't care what you guys might think, but there is definitely a lot less cabs around now than there was... even 12 months ago. Well they generally aren't showing up for sale on facebook groups, gumtree, ebay like they were... either that of they're being snapped up really really fast... and if that's the case, then maybe it's just a good indication that the market is not over priced, just that it's changed.

I don't like prices being higher more than anyone else, and thankfully i have held on to a number of things that have gone up quite a lot in value over that time... i'm selling some stuff and you can bet your left titty i'm not selling stuff for what I paid for it 10 years ago. Would i pay market prices for it, no way... but if other people are, then i'm selling into that and i'll get as much as i can for it. I suspect a lot of people will be in a similar frame of mind when they are selling things. People who sell things below market value... why? That's just silly.

No one is really obliged to give anyone a "bro"deal... and im not stupid either. People don't have to buy at that price either. People don't always think about if something is a great deal... sometimes people just want something, and accept that's the price they are going to have to pay to get it. Like me with my Vewlix clone. I don't think $1800 is a good deal at all... but i dont have other options, so i'm going to buy it because i want it.

It's all relative though, it'll just go towards buying other shit that i want... in the current market at current prices... like a taito type X IO board for $250... or a clone Vewlix cab for $1800... Or a net dimm for $300... or a cps2 motherboard for $200... Some of those prices just seem insane... but that's the market price.

Again, not a dig at anyone, i understand it... and yes the way to make prices not keep going up is to not buy stuff... but that won't happen. We buy things, new people get into the hobby and they buy things. And this supply of things that are apparently cheaper... i don't know where that is... Sometimes you just have to accept that markets change and move with them.

This EXACT same argument is happening in 2 other collecting hobbies that I also dabble in. People are losing their shit because of the prices things are fetching... mostly because they used to own it and no longer do... but it's the same thing... the exact same argument and then a lot of the collectors who have been in the hobby for a long time are calling out people paying higher prices.... but if you want something, or you just got into the hobby, you literally have no choice. There is no secret hidden cache of super cheap items sitting somewhere that only the cool people know about.

Just my 2c. And before you flame away... i'm all sides of this argument, got stuff cheap many years ago, sold a lot of stuff cheap.. I mean a LOT. Still have some, am selling some of it at max prices possible that i can get now, and still buying stuff in this current market at those inflated prices with INSANE shipping prices.... wouldn't pay close to what some people are paying for some items.... Have at it!

on the same board, bet on my left nut that i will ever sell my cab at the same price that i bought few years back.
Sellers ofcourse want to maximise the profit and would only drop the price if the demand is very smalll.... but on contrary, demand for arcade cab is increasing over the years and i expect the median price to rise above $1.5k for an average working conditon cab in the future.
Should be glad that candy cab price has not gone off the roof like Pinball ....yet.

Just checking if anyone knows anywhere local that sells these?

I just purchased 6 joysticks and i got the wrong ones... same stick, just doesn't have the pcb with 5 pin header, only has the microswitches, so i need some of these harnesses.

2020-09-24 15_59_10-.187 to 5-pin Conversion Harness.jpg


I know I can make my own, and under non locked down circumstances with all the shops open, I would probably just drive to Jaycar and get the pin header myself and rig them up... but I just can't be f'd right now.
So if anyone knows someone local that makes and sells these, let me know! Thanks!

Anyone in Oz have a spare Capcom Classic JAMMA Adapter, or one they're not using I can buy, or even borrow for a while?

I need it for a Ghost & Goblins that I will attempt to repair. Let me know.

Instead of this






They came from akishop... my fault not theirs, but since i got 6 of them, i dont just want to get 6 more. Harnesses will be the way to go. The ones out of the US are cheap...it's the shipping time more than anything. Jaycar being closed also just makes it even more tedious. I tried to scrounge around for something that had a pin header on it that i could pinch... i have nothing at all with a pin header like that i can destroy. Except a SNK Ls30 joystick.... not going to happen.

@Murray, you can order the parts from RS fairly easy and they have free shipping. I have some bits (but not the time) to make up a few for you, but not 6! :)

If you really want to get up and started, you could solder wires directly to the stick, but that gets messy quickly.

Just checking if anyone knows anywhere local that sells these?

I just purchased 6 joysticks and i got the wrong ones... same stick, just doesn't have the pcb with 5 pin header, only has the microswitches, so i need some of these harnesses.

I know I can make my own, and under non locked down circumstances with all the shops open, I would probably just drive to Jaycar and get the pin header myself and rig them up... but I just can't be f'd right now.
So if anyone knows someone local that makes and sells these, let me know! Thanks!
Would something below suit? I haven't used either of these places but they are in OZ so shipping will be quick.
