A few people on here are making scratch build cabs which isn't a bad idea as lots of  the important bits :

Joysticks
PCB
Artwork
CRT
Coin door.

Are all readily available and for the difficult bits like the metalwork ( control panel and lower coin door , marquee supports ) someone else will already have this in hand so can make you one too.

Might be your  best and potentially cheaper option.

Thank you for the info! I do have my heart set on an original. But will definitely consider that idea if I can't find one. I only plan to get 2 cabs - this and a Space Harrier upright. Somehow it means something more if you know you have an original.

Try the container services and import one. Probably get it a lot quicker that way as they are seldom sold.

As Alpha says, try an import or scratch build. Chances of a robotron suddenly hitting the fs section on here these days are very slim indeed.

Nobody with a working brain sells a Robotron, at least the upright ones. Importing is the way to go - it's faster and very likely cheaper.

Here's one in Florida right now:


Get Bob Cunningham (cheapest option) or Beltmann (most expensive, but faster) to pick it up and deliver to Ken (with his prior permission). Or get SEKO Logistics to handle door-to-door.

Edit: Or have it picked up and driven to Coin-Op Warehouse where it can go on either Coin-Op King or RGP's consignments.

And then stick a JROK in it with a Ken Falta loom!

Loads of options, but you have to move fast man :)

Sorry to Hijack a little. But has anyone used Seko before? What sort of prices are you looking at door to door?

I’m sure the other methods are great, but do like the idea of a one stop shop.

I paid around 280 per game recently (not including VAT on purchase price) but I had six games coming in and it was a shared consignment with Stephen Arnold, so I imagine it would be a few hundred more for a single game. I nearly shipped them in directly but lucked out with Stephen wanting to bring games over too.

If money is no object and you have to have one, then Home Leisure direct are currently selling one for 5k on their website. Their stuff is insanely overpriced but I am not sure what your financial situation is and how desperate you are for the search to be over

If you can afford to splash out 5K on a Robotron, you wouldn't be nuts enough to do so.

Cheers Richard. Definitely give me a shout next time you’re thinking about it. After you’ve sold me those 2 cabs I’m waiting for haha.

Thanks very much for the info. I will look into this.

That's the sale price too! I don't mind paying a bit over the normal price but 5K is probably too much. If it was 4K I might go for it since it does has free delivery.

I did see a nice one a year ago for £750 but I really wanted to get Robotron first since I live in a small house and I don't have space for 2 machines just yet (need to clear out some furniture first!).

Don't pay £4k for a Robotron on these shores. Seriously, you don't need to do that.
