Been done well to be fair , again its a repro so it gng to have an lcd. Expensive but i think the cabinet cost 300-400 ish and there is a fair bit of work in it.
These are not for everyone !!! But lots of games in 1 cab, remember not everyone has room for loads of cabs.

I built an exact replica DK a few years back and it cost me 1000 + the labour I put into it.
The lack of nintendo coin door and CRT kills it but they could be added easily.
Would like to see how well done the inside is.
And what and how it made of,I'm not a fan of 300kg MDF cabs!

Replica cabs are the way forward now ,fortunately and unfortunately
I wonder if In 30 years time the hoarders will buy these all up and put them In storage lol
At least if you did buy it ,you could play it regularly without much worry of reliability
Depends if your a gamer or collector .
The reliability thing might outweigh any slight difference in the way its looks
If you put it in your game room ,99 people out of 100 won’t even realise it’s not the real thing

this is good or bad depending on whether you want to spend your time playing your cabinet or searching the internet for ways to fix it...

Strange they have put an image up of Gunsmoke and the machine doesnt have 3 buttons to play that game with....

As others have said though, it is very well done

My DK cocktail has been going for 15 years without a single issue.  If these reproductions make it past 15 years I'll be amazed.
There's nothing unreliable about a machine that needs a bit of maintenance after 20 years of use, that then means it's good for another 20 years.

Also:
- If the guy paid £1600 originally, then he's an idiot.
- The 2 60in1 boards I've owned personally have had crap audio and one died after just a year.
- At no point in the auction has he mentioned it's a reproduction/fake cab
- The graphics are completely wrong cpo/bezel
- The buttons are sh*tty illuminated ones

It's just awful.  Fine if it was maybe £500.
