FS: Candy Cab Manuals

I have extras of these manuals. These are doujin arcade cab manuals that go over specifications, features, measurements, history, etc. and theres usually some silly comics inside as well. All text is in Japanese, but there are lots of pictures and they average between 22 and 30 pages. $12.00 each pl...

Re: New Taito Stools - Spring 2020 Order - 43cm and 48cm - See pics



I just got an email from Taito that stool prices are increasing, so this buy is off until I can calculate what they're going to do.

I'll honor all that have paid, but it looks like its over for the time being... ;(

Re: PCB Repair- Tokyo

yeah - just bring it in.
They'll test it for a day, and call you to tell you whats wrong and quote you a price. If you don't like it, go pick it up.

Re: Items you can't afford on Yahoo Japan Auctions

That J. J. Squawkers that was posted here a few months ago has gone ages with nary a bid on what seemed to be a reasonable price. Its been relisted at a new lower price. I honestly think we\re getting played on PCB prices. There's serious manipulation going on. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/a...

I've always used MAK. Expensive, and they take a while but their work is flawless and comes with a 90 day guarantee.

Re: New Taito Stools - Fall 2019 Order - 43cm and 48cm - See pics

All stools have been sold. I'm not sure whats happening this year, but I may be returning to Texas for the second half of 2020 (returning to Japan in early 2021). If so, I'll be doing the only stool order of 2020 in March and moving to the USA in ~August. I'll know 100% at that time what I'll be doi...

I still refuse to believe that JAPJAC (Leading pioneer and expert in the field of Japanese videogame playing, studying & collecting in the U.K. since day one' © 2001. Japan resident & TFP founder.) is or ever was a real person.

I'd like to hear why people would want a Deathsmiles 2 BL or something like that.
Because the original PC hardware is complete garbage and routinely breaks even with extra gentle handling.
