    Today $299USD is $421.83AUD. Add GST and it's $464. Add $35 shipping and you get $499.

    If the AUD drops to 0.65, $299USD is $499AUD inc GST.

    When you factor in exchange rate a lot of electronics are about the same price or cheaper here than the US, Plus over there you add sales tax after the advertised price and that varies from state to state and city to city.

    The space invaders one "looks" cool, but it also features Karate Champ and it looks like it only has ONE joystick? How are you supposed to play the classic two joystick game with only one? These 1up people really don't give a f%^k about the gamers, this is almost as bad as the totally unplayable Defender they put out. If you could buy swappable CPs for them so the games are playable then they would be cool for casual gamers.

    I would return these cabs as unfit for purpose.
    Winter is here and I'm still riding more than gaming, my current goal = 100,000 meters elevation gain for the year - well ahead so far

    I actually think their promo is just misleading and Karate Champ is just another cabinet they didn't have space in the promo. Adding Space Invaders with Karate Champ would just be too random.

    Yeah you could be right, looks like the "also Karate Champ" might mean another cab instead of the Space Invaders cab including that game. My comments for Defender still stand, totally unplayable with the supplied CP. Defender is a great game but must have the original CP layout, they could have made a Defender / Stargate cab with correct controls that would have been a great buy for many people. Not for me as I have an original cab.

    Arcade 1Up Cabinets

    I bought the 12 in 1 for $350 USD.
    While I have an ArcadeSD in a full size Galaga cabinet, the Atari games offered in this are great. The original cabs for these games are HEAVY and with Vector Monitors prone to breakdown.
    Iíd pay extra for a decent spinner but the games are all playable.
    In Major Havoc - I use both buttons and spinner for left and right depending on sensitivity needed. Not like the original but playable and a fun game.
    Trackball works well.
    Artwork is great. Again, would be great to have upgrade options like spinners, lit marquees etc.
    Overall, the 12-1 is a great addition for those of you that love the games but know youíll likely never have most of these games in your house in original arcade form.
    4/5.

    Update to this. Iíve been pleased enough with the 12-1 that I bought a Street Fighter unit when I saw it on sale at FYE for $200.
    I am debating turning it into a RetroPie after Iíve tired of Street Fighter.
    I would gladly pay $50 for a spinner upgrade that was like the original tempest spinner.
    Also, would have liked to have seen the trackball be an option to work with Major Havoc but hey - you get what you pay for and these units while cheaply made are cheap in cost, playable and helps keep retro gaming alive.
