    Is this a real style of MVS cab?

    I'm not the most knowledgeable neogeo fan but I haven't seen anything like this before.

    Is it a real style of cab that snk made? Or is it some kind of wacky conversion?

    So they gutted and disfigured an original Bally Xenophobe to produce that... thing...

    This might be one of the few cases where a landfill would be considered mercy.

    P.S. Player two buttons must be a real joy to use... if you you're an alien and have E.T.-like fingers.

    I can't believe anyone would even think this was an original SNK cab... god damn it has no style.

    Yesh - the buttons are spread SO far apart. This must be horrible to play anything on unless you have super giant hands.

    Thanks for the info and the identification everyone! Darn that's so sad that an operator converted such an eclectic cabinet as Xenephobe, however I guess it probably made the operator many more years of $$$ once it was turned into a neogeo.

    I agree, the cab is super funky looking and doesn't really look like something SNK would put out... however in the back of my mind I was thinking about how there were some really large and eclectic designs, like the Irritating Maze cab, so was thinking just maybe this thing was one of those.

    Btw, on the off chance someone would like to buy this thing, it is for sale on fb marketplace in New Hampshire for $500. It apparently has a nonfunctioning 1 slot board in it. Search for "Now Geo" [sic]
