Really cheap looking build quality. I pity the person who paid a grand for that!

Ah no one will pay that much, the cab itself looks good but internals do not.

slap a Nintendo logo on anything and everybody will want it... including stuff that has existed for free for ages

They could stamp large cardboard boxes and sell it as affordable housing I'm sure

So what's a fair price to be selling bartops at?
Our shop is planning on buidling some (proper japanese parts, no tacky art etc)
based on a pandoras box.
Could be great for the shop if the margins are right but I've never seen these for sale at non silly prices

Depends on a few variables. Screen size, hardware specs, build quality/finish, quality of controls, 1p/2p, marquee lighting, etc etc. For the time & effort to make a nice one, I'd say it'd be hard to keep costs down enough & still make profit.

I dont think you can make basic(but good quality) bartops that sell for a reasonable price and still make a profit on them.
Now, if you can make something really great looking with an especially clean/sexy design, you can charge a good bit more a pull in a decent profit per machine.

Remember that dude who made the candy cab bartops? They were amazing. Prices were mental but they really were slick.

Was looking through some old photos and came across this beauty, jesus

Someone actually looked a a Domy Jr with no CP and thought, 'I know exactly what this small petite Candy cab needs, an aircraft carrier bolted to it'

On a brighter note, the control panel also doubles as something to bury you in, presumably after you die at the hands of O1s1n, who loves petite Candy cabs!

What does it cost to put a semi decent bartop together?
I've thought about it once or twice, might actually go and do something about it
