    It's been a long 2 years since I've been wanting to snag one of these to go with my SNK Neo19 candy cabinet, and finally a month ago I found someone selling and I decided I had to have it. I just got it a couple of days ago, I present to you the Capcom Mini-cute arcade candy cabinet.

    The screen looks really dark in the pics because of the plexi but it's great in person. I've spent the last couple of days cleaning and fixing it up. I had to replace the speakers, the others were so old they were literally falling apart. I've also put in an order for replacement sticks and buttons (in blue and yellow, I thought it was appropriate.) The room the cabinets are in is in shambles right now or I'd take some pics of them side by side. Once I get everything the way I want I'll post pics of everything set up.

    That looks great! How big is it? Care to take some pictures with other stuff in shot for comparison?

    My arcade holy grail would have to be a Model 2 House of the Dead rear projector cabinet... when I get my own house I'll be actively looking for one of those...

    Great Arcade title there. Me, I woudl have to get the most recent versions of Initial D, Midnight Wangan, and maybe throw in a DDR just to make a fool of myself.

    Japanese cabs man, :Gouki:  outta your standard wooden beasts IMO. Small enough to fit multiple ones in a smaller area, and light enough to move without a crew of people. Granted I wouldn't mind having some normal cabinets (they're cheaper and can be found locally) they just aren't an option in the house I currently live in.

    And the games can be changed, I've currently got 9 games for it; Super Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter Alpha 2, X-Men: COTA, Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men vs. SF, Marvel vs. SF, Marvel vs. Capcom, Vampire Savior, and the Punisher.

    Like I said, I'll get some more pics here within the next few days and I'll be sure to get a good comparison one in there. Off the top of my head I'll say it's about 4' tall, but the monitor is 19".

    I'm usually envious of any in-home arcade cabinet, but having 9-game Capcom fighter cabinet is probably the coolest thing ever.

    Man, A neo geo and a CP2 are both still grails for me.

    You go you!

    I wish I had space for even a small cabinet like that...

    Wow, that looks sweet.

    Ahem...

    If I were to, theoretically, "show up" with my truck and some "big" friends do you think I could "have" your gaming cabinets?
