If the shipping on these signs wasn’t ridiculously high ($143 USD) I’d be all over these for my own game room (or arcade). Either way they look really nice and cover both arcade and pinball enthusiasts.

While these aren’t anything new (there is a review of these from sometime ago at insomnia.ac) they are always cool to look at and even cooler to play.
