    My MVS cabs

    Hello. New here, but not new to NEO GEO. My favorite system as a kid and I spent allot of $$$ in the arcades. Finally, about 6 months ago I picked up my first NEO GEO MVS cab...Big Red (6 slot)! A few months later I came across a MVS mini (2 slot) and had to have it! I now have 15 carts and can't get enough (more on the way)!

    UPDATED WITH NEW PICS

Hoping to add a Neo Geo candy soon.

    Nice cabs! I've always wanted a Neo mini.

    I like seeing the two cabs side-by-side like that. It's as if the 6-slot is standing up for its younger sibling.

    Thanks guys! Digging the forum!

    So about 8 months ago I jumped in and picked up my first arcade cab. It was a refurbed Dynamo with custom artwork and a Pandora's Box 3 in it (far right in the pic below)...

    IMG_8283.JPG

    It originally had an LCD monitor in it, I replaced it with a CRT (which was a bundle purchase that included some Neo Geo carts). I started playing a TON of Neo Geo games again. I WAS HOOKED!

    I started looking for a Neo Geo cab. About 2 months later I found the 6 slot. It was in GREAT shape and came with 7 carts. I got it for a GREAT price (including delivery)! I did get the monitor re-capped, installed a new flyback, and replaced the buttons. Everything else is still original and works great. I'm looking the replace the EL paper for the mini marquees sometime in the near future.

    A couple months later I came across the mini at our annual arcade event (Louisville Arcade Expo). A guy had two of them on display. I'd never seen one before and spent most of my time playing them. One of them was for sale, so we worked out a deal and it came home with me. FYI...the mini fits perfectly in the back of a 2015 Kia Soul It's in GREAT shape with very low plays. The only thing that I had to do was replace the 2nd player joystick.

    I'm super grateful to have these cabs!

    I'm hoping to add a Neo Geo candy sometime soon.

    Hello. You have any Neo Geo cabs? By chance, did you check out the last Louisville Arcade Expo?

    Yep, I've got a Neo 25 candy cab.

    I was also at Louisville Arcade Expo briefly, I remember seeing the two mini's there but I thought the sign on them said "Not for sale". Kinda wish I'd have paid closer attention now, ohh well looks like it found a good home.

    Nice! Those Neo 25 Candy's are SWEET!

    Yeah, originally neither of them were for sale. The guy broke down and bought a pin on Sunday and decided to put one of them up for sale.

    A buddy of mine had a couple Candy's at the show.

    Really cool Dynamo Refurb, excellent! I refurbed a Dynamo with SF2CE all legit, great cabs, my only gripe is the CP angle, it can get to you after a while but a great cab nonetheless.

    Having that mini neo next to its big brother is pretty awesome! Growing up I recalled playing on dynamos fairly often so I'm also a fan of them. Very nice!

    Yes, the CP (on the Dynamo) takes some getting used to.

    very awesome cab collection!!! just recently picked up a neo geo gold cab. currently in the process of getting some new joysticks and would eventually like to get a new or repro cpo for it to give it that original look.

    Next goal is to pick up a big red, (4 or 6 slot) and a sega astro city!
