Kids played this it small but was a good laugh.. they do larger ones online but they cost a lot more..
This is a bargain, had one made for more than this. I imagine you can download more games onto it. A great fathers gift and a very good price for a full size cabinet machine.
They sell a riser kit for it
A bit pricey for a gag product. I'd rather get a genuine Capcom cab
Nope you can't it's just what you get on it. But there are kits to convert it to play mame
There are reports from America of the control stick being very weak,inferior quality and breaking, also the paint is very thin on the control panel and wears off, though could be useful for the retro look

Sounds like my next project, after I build a one foot base to make it pretty much normal arcade height.

Looks like a pi kit, launchpad and roms.

Wish I bought both cabinets now.

There's not really such a thing as a "genuine" Capcom cabinet. The classic Street Fighter arcade games were on CPS/CPS II arcade boards that used the JAMMA (Japanese Amusement Machine & Marketing Association) standard system. So the cabinets were made by various arcade cabinet manufacturers, Capcom didn't make their own cabinets, they just made their games on the industry standard system for the time, a little like how you have various companies that make Blu-Ray players to a set specification, and a range of publishers who put their stuff out in that format.

I think this is a review of this product. From memory it had its pluses and minuses; worth watching if you are considering buying.

Thinking about it, yes, you're right. There were varying qualities of cabinets. This looks nothing like the high quality ones I used to stick to.

It’s not full size
Build one. They’re not hard and pretty much all the fun is in making it and getting it exactly how you want.
Do they come flat-packed?

It's not full size, it's quite small actually
Plenty of YouTube reviews on these units, they are indeed self assembly and no you cannot add games to it (unless you replace the guts, raspberry pi / mame board etc) and yes they are small.

It’s a shame they changed the game line up on the UK version as it was originally going to have Ghosts and Goblins, Final Fight and Stryder inc with Street Fighter.

That would have been an amazing arcade to own.

Just need one with TMNT and my childhood nostalgia trip would be complete.
