    Hello! New to Neo Geo and Candy Collecting

    Hi everyone. Iím new to collecting neo geo but Iíve been collecting/ video games (home console) for all of my life. Within the last year I started collecting arcades. I started of with the old school cabs until I got my first candy (Neo29) and then after that I fell in love. I love the community around Neo Geo and Iím happy to be apart of it.

    Hello! New to Neo Geo and Candy Collecting

    Still having power issues with those cabs?
    How's the Astro restore coming?

    Iíve yet to power them on since then. I think it may have been to Goldie power supply making them funky. Might be time for a new one. The Astro still need lots of work but when this weekend Iím going to work on it.

    Thank you everyone! And no, no fighters in my cabs. I prefer platformers and shmups.

    Some very nice cabs there. I've still never seen a Neo Geo Goldie in person. That Super Neo 29 and SEGA Aero City... Hummina Hummina! It's my dream to one day own a SEGA Aero Table. Gotta have a dream or two!

    Carpet is bad news bears for electronics. Do a little shuffle and ZAP, there goes a pcb.
