Silk Hat? What’s is that? It is in the place of the Jaleco logo.
I have no idea, but I hope that bit is kosher.
It's the text size that does it. I've a feeling that Jaleco re-used the same screens from the Mk2 on the Mk3 - the lightbox area gets bigger but the text does not.

I've got a variety of Silk Hat tokens.

Those Surugaya prices... Christ, 680K yen for DSMBL? 298K for Pink Sweets? Are prices really that nuts now for CAVE?

I mean, I realize there is a retail markup, but still...

Prices aren't that nuts for CAVE. You'd have to be insane to pay what they are asking for many of those games. You can find them much cheaper at other retailers (even Tops!), YAJ, forums, etc.

Certain CAVE games do regularly sell for crazy high amounts (DFK BL and SDOJ being the prime examples), but most are not like that.

PS: Surugaya's DSMBL has the wrong box. Ditto for their DFK BL kit.

Makes sense. I figured those prices were mad, good to have confirmation. No plans to buy any of that. :awe:

I love how everyone, including the Japanese, seem to think that YAJ is just a bunch of foreigners bidding against each other. :awe:

I've been tracking this for awhile, and for the Cave stuff at least, I'd estimate at least 80% of the time it is just foreigners bidding against each other. When it comes to old cardboard boxes it is at least 90% foreigners.

Surugaya just got absolutely flooded with CAVE ****:

https://www.suruga-ya.jp/search?categor ... descending

I'm guessing a collector died, or an arcade chain just went out of biz... :wtf:
Seems like it was a japanese arcade collector (alive and kicking) who sold some of his stuff. Here's a picture of the stash:

And link to the Twitter thread with more pics of the CAVE kits now available at Surugaya: https://twitter.com/bentouya/status/1035657706588106752
ケイブ基板を手放すので記念撮影をしました (Google translated to: I took a ceremonial photo as I let go of the cave substrate)

I wonder how much Surugaya paid him for that loot :wtf:

Items are sexy, but prices are not.

Nope, samurai07 just posts boards from Surugaya and other PCB shops and add some to the price.
Uses the same pics.
