RYU FS Traveler Bags May 16, 2016 15:38
Just an update for those who pre-ordered the RYU FS Traveler. We will be receiving the shipment some time next week. All pre-orders will ship then.
Since we sold out of these bags and have a large quantity to ship out, we will be pre-printing the shipping labels before FEDEX or USPS picks these up, so there will be a few days delay with no tracking updates. This is common for large pre-order quantities, so please don't panic.
These were slated to ship out early June, but we're over 10 days early, so it's well ahead of schedule.
Lastly, thank you to everyone for the incredible response and because of your support, our partners at SPLITFRAME LLC will continue to create better products.

We should be receiving these no later than this Tuesday or Wednesday and shipping pre-orders first.
Please be patient if you do not get a tracking immediately as there are many orders to fulfill. Worse case, your order will ship within 48 hours at the latest.

Hori's HRAP4 Premium VLX Kuro's are here April 30, 2015 00:12
It's been a very long few years since we have had the opportunity to get our hands on Hori's Premium VLX fight sticks. Besides us being resellers, first and foremost, we are huge gamers and collectors of what we sell. This is a big reason why you have seen custom and unique products from us the past year. We simply love this stuff at an insane level. Many resellers do this for a living, which is absolutely fine, but we do what we do, because simply, this is our passion. We breathe video game parts and continually think of new things to bring to the market that really makes a difference. Buying and reselling can be done by anyone and for everything we want to do, we pursue to be that special place customers seek to buy their goods.
Ever since we set our eyes on the first Premium VLX, we have been at it, being the first small vendor, outside of Amazon.com to offer the original Premium VLX. Hori later worked on an exclusive collaboration with Amazon Japan for the 2nd Version, the VLX Diamond, which we persistently clawed and pursued to import here to customers in the United States at an extremely reasonable price, about half of what resellers were offering once imported from Japan.
After 2 versions of the Premium VLX, we felt there was still much life left in this stick and a third and final Premium VLX just felt right, not only for fans, but the whole FGC. A new system, a hot fight stick market and a time where sticks were not only seen as a gaming weapon, but as a collectible stick. It was just time and fortunate for us Hori Japan gave the thumbs up on the project known as the "Premium VLX Kuro" which was all Hori parts and offered the latest features such as a touchpad and PS4/3 dual mod compatibility.
Today, April 29th, we received our shipment of these beauties and it's just an amazing feeling to complete that Premium VLX Trilogy. If you haven't had a chance to experience on of these and just feel the build quality, weight and construction, you'll know it's at another level. This fight stick is built like a tank and has a design that is way ahead of it's time. If you want the "Jordan" of fight sticks, Hori's Premium VLX Kuro (along with their other variations) makes a darn good case for being just that.
Get these while you still have time. As history shows, once these are gone, the value simply sky rockets.
Restock Alerts!! via Facebook and Twitter April 08, 2015 21:19
To give you gals and guys heads up, we will be adding some NOS (New Old Stock) of various items in our store periodically. The most effective means in doing this is on our Facebook and Twitter accounts. Some of the items we will list are in very high demand and some have not been seen in the store for over a year.
Where did these items come from? Many of the cool, unique and collectible items we carry are a one time production. We generally buy our own collectible items this way and from this, sell them the same so that they're limited to those who care to collect them. A good portion of what we're updating as a "restock" here are from the Arcadeshock Collection. What this means is that they're in NOS (Old Stock items that are New or New Old Stock).
Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Like us on Facebook because we have some 'heavy' collectible stuff coming. For those who say "I could care less about the collector's market" just know that these products are still high quality parts and components that perform to the highest standards.
Sanwa Denshi's new pushbutton / balltop color - Royal Blue March 31, 2015 13:00
Our long list of wants and concepts for FGC fight sticks and parts are slowly coming along. The clear bat top was the first step as it was something we recommended to Sanwa Denshi years ago (over 2 years to be exact), but Sanwa Denshi was unsure of the demand for it. Thanks to the FGC community, Sanwa Denshi's survey at EVO 2014 sealed the deal for the official production of the clear bat top.
In May of 2014, we had a meeting with Sanwa Denshi for various projects that we wanted to do. One of those ideas was to add a new color to their lineup. We asked them to make us another form of blue, which we call "Royal Blue" and at the time, they granted us exclusivity for EVO 2015. But considering how popular we think this color would be overall, it shouldn't be limited, as it could continue in their lineup and sell quite well over time. So officially, they decided to make it as part of their normal lineup.
For starters, 4 products will be released with the Royal Blue or "MB" badge:
Pushbuttons: OBSF30-MB, OBSFS30-MB, OBSF24-MB
Note: According to Sanwa Denshi, the MB stands for Matte Blue
We will be taking pre-orders on this immediately and our shipment is arriving within 10-14 days. The first production is limited due to the high demand as you can imagine, but the good news is that we secured a large quantity of these (as we should since we asked for these over a year ago).
Thank you Sanwa Denshi Co Ltd for making this happen. It's a great color addition and will make modders out there quite giddy.
Hori's RAP4 VLX Kuro Pre-orders SOLD OUT! March 26, 2015 21:06
Congratulations to those who reserved the Hori VLX Kuro. Our pre-orders are sold out. We actually oversold some of our inventory for upcoming shows so we have to cut off orders to have some stock remaining for those who plan to attend the following shows:
Nor Cal Regionals 2015 : Sales will be online only as it's not physically available. Sales will open at 10AM sharp on April 3rd thru April 5th or whenever the quantity allotted sells out, which we will anticipate within the first few hours.
So Cal Regionals 2015 (TBD): We have not secured a booth, but hopefully we will attend. Sales for this item will be On-Site (maybe online, but unlikely as we won't have enough inventory).
EVO 2015: These will purely be on site sales only.
If you cannot attend either SCR 2015 or EVO 2015, we suggest picking on up on April 3rd online.
We love the VLX design and construction, but unlike George Lucas, we will stick with the Trilogy and keep it in classic form.
Exciting New Products for the FGC for 2015 March 25, 2015 23:50
If you're really into cool new products and love the excitement of how new sneakers are released, you are in good company. If you're a sneaker head, you know exactly what we're talking about. Air Jordans being the highest demand shoe product on the planet is announced weeks/months ahead and when it's launched, 95% of the time, they sell out. The thing is, if the AJ is hot you pretty have about 1 minute to grab them before they're sold out.
At Arcadeshock, we're not here just to 'sell' a product. We use, buy and now help develop quite of few items that we buy from our vendors. We simply love this stuff and for years, seeing what's been released or lack of, we have always had the itch to provide our input on what we think the fans would really find useful, but yet, perform with the highest standards.
Some of the products such as the licensed characters on Sanwa Denshi pushbuttons were ideas that derived from us, years ago. We were told it could not be done by various vendors, year after year, but we kept pushing and now, a few licenses later, it's flowing through the FGC.
The purpose of this specific blog is to inform those who follow us that we will be releasing quite a few new products this year for the FGC and we will be announcing them a week or even a month before it happens so everyone can have a shot at some of these releases. The one thing we don't like about how the limited releases of shoes are done is most of the time we miss out and come out empty handed, later only resorting to paying more than 30% after market for it.
We will do everything in our control to prevent this from happening with products that you find from us.
On March 31st, 2015 at 11:00AM you'll be able to pre-order something that we've been pushing for over 2 years. Not to over hype this product, it's a small teaser for MANY things to come from us. It was one of the pieces we were going to have as an exclusive piece at EVO 2015, but decided that it would be better as a mass produced product.
So please join us this year in a journey of unique goodies.
