Identifying a candy cab


#1

I have the opportunity to possibly buy a working candy cab with a Neo-Geo MVS and SVC Chaos for $100NZ (~$53US) plus shipping. This is obviously an insanely good deal, but I can’t identify the cab by sight to get its weight, and thus get a quote from a shipping company.

Here’s a link to the auction itself (I’ll trust you guys to not snipe me - plus there aren’t many other Kiwis on Tech Talk anyway) http://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=208300371

If someone could eyeball that photo and tell me what cab it is and/or its dimensions and weight, I’d be most grateful.

Looks like a Sega New Astro City cab cause the way the speakers are on top and the way the coin doors are. Looks like the monitor was changed from a 29 to a 25?

Hmm, comparing it to this site, it doesn’t really seem match a New Astro City. Is that site wrong or are you mistaken? I appreciate your help either way though. :tup:

Man they had a few of these at a Pizza parlor by my house in Puerto Rico. Many, many hours of epic Windjammers fights held on those. :slight_smile: (Fuckin’ love that game. Wish it had caught on and made sequels.)

I don’t know the weight either, but wish ya luck picking that baby up. It’s a good cherry.

It’s a Korean cab from the early 90s.

Ah-ha! I thought they looked like korean parts but I’m not familiar enough with them to have been sure.

You don’t happen to know the make/model or dimensions? Or a site that specialises in korean cabs that might know?

Doesn’t look like an Astro panel (it looks too square).

Check the archives there, you’ll probably find it. I don’t know off the top of my head exactly what it is.

But I would buy it regardless if you’re in the area it’s being sold. That’s a hell of a price if it doesn’t skyrocket too high.

Hmm, with a bit more hard work digging, it appears it may be a “Crowin Case” of some kind, and be largely wood rather than plastic. See this post on Neo-Geo.com, and compare the coin mech area.

I still definitely want it, but that extra weight’s gonna up the shipping cost. :frowning:

EDIT: Tracked it down finally now. It’s a Samducksa CWC-201. Now I just need to find the specs for it.

Yeah, it’s this one on Hard-Candy.com

Some good pics and info there if you’re needing specs and dimensions.

Oops, guess no specs on that page. But good pics

It’s an OK BABY! Korean machine.

I want one!
