What kind of cab or cabs do you collect?

Sweet, Egret is an incredibly cool cab.

I have a New Astro City - used to own a standard wooden European jamma cab, but I sold it because I felt like having more than one cabinet would take up way too much useful space. Traded the real estate for a cupboard I could use to organize all my PCBs neatly, which has made switching out games much more relaxed.

Too bad I can't fit all my PCBs in that cupboard anymore.

I have a 4-player Quartet cabinet that has languished in my office for the last 8 years, or so, waiting for me to do a refurb 😛

I'll bring it home once I can finally clear up the space, and then I"ll be more likely to actually get the work done... (needs button upgrades -- original is a bunch of mostly-worn-out leaf switches)

At some point, I'd like to put in a switch-able harness/board to give it other 4-player games or a 2-player multi-board of some kind.

 

I also inherited an OLD pinball machine (1960's era version of 8-ball).  It needs a ton of work, but has a lot of sentimental value, so I'll make a project with the kids one day.

The cabinets I own are cartridge-based ones - Neo Geo and Sega Titan. I own an Atomiswave board and some games however the cabinet is a real bitch to locate.

Nice!  I have a region free ST-V and a 1-slot for my cab as well as a huge stack of carts.  No Atomiswave though. There weren't many games I wanted to play on it.  All great units!

Hi guys!  Just joined the club.  I currently have an Outrun, Street Fighter II: World Warrior (i.e. plain old SFII), World Series: The Season, Atari Football, Donkey Kong Jr., a Neo Geo MVS 1-slot conversion, and a Pac-Man Arcade Party cocktail table that Namco of America made back in 2010.  I also have a pin in Bally Midway's Party Animal!

DK Jr and Atari Football are my newest acquisitions.  That stimulus check helped out with those two!  😁

MaxLords, awesome pics!

I got 4 cabs in total, a Sega New Astro City, Capcom Impress, Capcom Status 18, and a Jaleco Pony Mark III, unfortunately 2 of them need work (Impress and Pony) other than that I'm pretty happy gaming mostly in the New Astro City, I got Super Street Fighter II Turbo hooked by default.

You have some of the KLOV hotness right there.  Mr. Do...man, if I could ever find one of those in the region at a reasonable price...

Awesome that you have an Arm Wrestling!  You don't see those very often.  Another KLOV hotness cab.  🙂

As you can tell from my avatar pic, Punch-Out!! is also on my "dream list" for future cab acquisitions.  Oh, and you can't go wrong with Track n Field...especially the cocktail/island version (like Atari Football...where you stand up to play!).

I actually had to pay $800 (overpriced at the time) and drive like 8 hours round trip to pick up that dedicated Mr. Do! years ago, but it's the only one I've ever seen for sale in my province, before or since, so I think I made the right decision 🙂

My first arcade cab is a CPS-2, 2 player. I still have the A-Board mounted in it, and have a few different B-Boards. Children of the Atom, Marvel vs Capcom, Xmen vs Street Fighter, and Darkstalkers 2. Currently I'm running a Pandora's Box DX in it because I wanted to mess around with adding PS1 games to it. Playing NFL Blitz and Gauntlet Legends has been fun.

2nd, I bought a twin set of Daytona USA racers. They're a blast.

3rd, I bought a Time Crisis 2 double. The 2-player screen is in-op, currently searching for a 27in standard def tube. 1-player side works perfectly though.

4th, I got my first pinball machine. Data East TMNT. It gets some hate from pinball enthusiasts because it's relatively simple with a limited number of shots, but I enjoy it.

5th, a 3-player Ivan Stewart's Off Road. Been wanting one of these things forever.
