Walmart has a slew of killer arcade cabinets -- from Star Wars to TMNT -- and they're on sale now.

Don't stop searching for sales yet! There are still great Cyber Monday deals on current consoles like Xbox One, but Arcade1Up's retro arcade cabinets offer a true gaming treasure for your home and are currently on deep discount at Walmart. These are three-quarter scale replicas of the old-school arcade machines, subtly upgraded for the modern era. These cabinets normally run $300 to $500, but for Cyber Monday, Walmart has slashed the prices anywhere from 15% to 50%. 

Remember, though: With the exception of the Star Wars and TMNT cabinets, these prices are only for the game cabinet and don't include the $45 riser (that raises it to adult height), which is sold separately. These units all ship in Ikea-style flat-pack boxes, and some assembly is required. But we've done it ourselves, and it's not too tough.

It's hard to describe this particular cabinet without getting giddy. This is the classic vector-graphics Star Wars game from 1983, in which you used a cool-looking flight yoke to alternate between shooting TIE fighters in space and running trenches on the Death Star. This cabinet displays three games (based on Star Wars: A New HopeThe Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) on a 17-inch LCD display and includes the riser to position the controls at adult height.

Available right now for $399.

The Galaga Arcade Machine is a 4-foot high cabinet that plays two games. You get the original Galaxian (from 1979) and 1981's follow-up, Galaga, on the 17-inch color LCD. As with all Arcade1Up consoles, it stands 4 feet high, but you can add a riser. 

Available right now for $199.

Relive your childhood TMNT fantasies of fighting Shredder with this cabinet that, like the arcade original, supports up to four players with two different games --Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Turtles In Time. CNET's Bridget Carey spent some time with this TMNT cabinet and was impressed with the upgraded materials and built quality.

Arcade1Up's Final Fight Arcade Machine plays four different games: Final Fight, 1944: The Loop Master, Ghosts 'n Goblins and Strider. The 4-foot high cabinet includes a 17-inch color LCD display and the original controls and artwork.

Available right now for $199.

Arcade1Up

The Asteroids Arcade Machine is now priced at $160, making it an incredible value -- it's almost half off the list price of $299. It includes four games: Asteroids, Major Havoc, Lunar Lander and Tempest. It's all displayed on the 17-inch color display and features authentic controls from the original design.

This deal is available right now.
