Buttons look nice but the balltop just looks like a picture on top of it and that just looks off.
I’d much rather just have a solid color balltop or a custom made one. Shit I think custom made balltops even cost less than these things.
Great buttons, but one can honestly just buy clear buttons from either Seimitsu or Sanwa or offbrand and print out the pics cut and apply at a FRACTION of the cost with a little technical know how.
imo these buttons and tops are great for collection/Display purposes. If I owned any I wouldn’t use them at all. I’m not one to pay over $4 for an arcade stick button, hell even paying $4+ for Clear Sanwas is kind of a rip off [Especially kinda irritating when there were Clear buttons available in both American and Seimitsu varieties for years before Sanwa recently jumped on the boat], but that’s just me though.
To each their own.
I was thinking the same thing. As neat as they are there’s really no reason to pay $12 for these buttons. If I ever end up modding my stick again I might just get clear buttons and do that, but for now I have no plans to do so.
Josh actually did it. kudos to you man, thats an expensive layout right there.

This is ALWAYS on our to-do-list whenever we visit Las Vegas. If you love arcades and enjoy the challenge of older games, Pinball Hall of Fame is something you need to see least once. Highly Recommended.

Holy Shit. Before Japan Arcade closed (November 2013), our owner sold most of the machines. Upon closer inspection of these photos, Family Arcade (LACC) held onto my hand-drawn BISHI BASHI marquee. I always designed those for fun and kill time, but I never knew it was that important.
pretty sure the bottom photo is from Family Fun Arcade back in the day.

OK, this may be the only reason I miss working at Japan Arcade - hearing EUROBEAT / AVEX TRAX / HI-SPEED MUSIC whenever someone played para para, Initial D or other licensed music game. I’m not even joking around, that was theee shit.
