Anybody in the US own an unconverted Dinosaur King?

Hoping there's someone stateside that has an unconverted Dinosaur King game. Bonus if its in northern IL, San Antonio, or around Orlando/St. Augustine.

I'd post up in the Wanted section in the Trading Outlet. Might get some bites there. I've only seen one Dinosaur King cab in the US and it was converted to a JAMMA Skycurser setup. Would love to get two myself to make a h2h setup.

There was one in Indiana about a year ago that some genius converted to a 60 in 1 :sick: (rest in pieces), but that's the only one I've ever seen for sale that was close enough to drive to (I live in Michigan). Wish I had a picture, because it, and its Galaga CPO needed to be in the gallery of ****.

Curious, remember what he was selling it for?

Also, I've been looking at a lot of these kiddie/ terminal type cabs and it seems that there are a lot of other options other than the Mushi/Dino/L&B cabs. Seen quite a few cabs that have protruding CPs that would be worthy conversion candidates.

Well he'd added a $45 60 in 1 board, so of course it was over a grand. I think it started at 1,200 and it was lowered to 1000 after a few months. "Brand new lcd" also. Yay...
:P Maybe in the Fort Wayne area?
I gave him credit for the CP, which looked professional, but it was painted a pinkish orange color, like coral or baby puke.

I'd be interested to learn of a few similar cabs, myself. I always thought one might look nice next to my Dreamcast kiosk.

Honestly, anything with a protruding CP that has a 45 - 90 degree angle. Something like this:

Yeah, it's a decent price, but shipping it over will get pricey. Will need to bring over a container.

Also, charging $1000 for a Mushiking is ridiculous, but if someone wants it enough they will pay for it. Honestly, a few hundred is more doable for something like that. Atst, there is demand for those cabs because everyone has seen conversion done with them and wants to do it themselves. However, as I pointed out, there are many other worthy conversion candidates out there and it really should not be limited to just the Mushiking cab model. Stray from the norm and you will definitely find something cheaper, more readily available, and maybe even better.

Yep I've looked at a lot of these types of things in my own quest for making a mini-arcade. But the issue to look for really is that a lot of the front facing panels are at a really stupid angle to be honest, they simply don't lend themselves well to traditional control panels. But even with this in the mind there are a ton of different cabs even just searching for the words ticket / rendemption / novelty etc.. and a lot of them can be saved for other purposes :)
