I don't know. With the screen being a LCD instead of a CRT, I think it losses some of its value with the vector graphics. But I will reserve judgement until I see it in motion.

So it's yet another one of these themed emulation cabinets? Hm. It would definitely be cooler if it had the original seated build. Coincidentally, I've been looking at old (2005) E3 photos just last week. The convention had a retro game part (probably down in Kentia Hall) that was packed with classic arcade machines, and I took a nice picture of a guy in a suit folded into the original "Star Wars" cabinet. I remember the seat being rather small and not comfortable at all, but it certainly looked flashy, with all those X-Wings painted on the sides.

This is really cool and probably one of the only dedicated emulation cabinets I'd actually be interested in.

If I had room, I would already own the Galega cabinet they did. That is one of the few retro games we still play on a regular basis. My Dad and my Daughter are always trying to top each other's high score. We aren't that good though. HaHa.

Galaga is one of my all-time favorites. Used to love seeing a cabinet in the airports or bars traveling back from duty stations to home back in the late '90s because I could generally spend less than a buck and kill an hour and waste some high-scores.

For me personally, though, I have no compunction rocking it with a host of other games on one MAME 'box' with good joystick/buttons.

That Star Wars cabinet though ... that's just sexy as hell.

I don't have room either, but I got it. It's sitting in the living room beside the piano. Make room, it's awesome.

I take it back about Star Trek. They need to do a Battlezone cabinet next. That would be... awesome...
