Would be interested in seeing a Megalo modded with an LCD and something like a framemeister.

Although the aspect ratio is 4:3 isn't it? So I don't think that would be possible unless you can somehow find a 50 inch LCD!

Would still rather the Duet myself too tbh, 28 inch monitor size in it is perfect.

I'd actually love one of these. Looking to get a nice general cab for the garage.

Yes 100% - That was the cardboard in the packaging.

The ebay sale was only for a buyer that can collect in UK so I used the services of a company in UK that specialises in arcade shipping. Martin was the name I got from a UK arcade forum - I highly recommend him. Could not have been more helpful.
He would have had that cardboard spare from a previous pinball shipment.

Martin collected it from the ebay seller, put in on a pallet (extremely well packaged) and left it in his warehouse for collection by transland for shipping to Ireland.

Me neither, all the pinball lads in the UK swear by Mairtin, meant to be a nice guy and really knows how to handle shipping arcade machines.

Thinking about getting a few pallets over BrownFinger?

Tramore was littered with cabs like these back in the day. My first memories of Street Fighter 2 were on this exact cabinet, stools and all.
