Bare carts have been steady for years at around £180-£200, not sure how much more the art would add.

£200 for a bare cart at pre-grail prices, £300+ seems reasonable nowadays.

Here's one with motherboard for £600:

The cap costs just $5, but if you don't know how to solder you will have to pay for someone to do it (plus shipping both ways). So it probably decreases the value about $100-$200.

I'd say $1000-1100. I saw one sell here for $1000 (I think) last December; one sell for $1050 earlier in the year on Shmups; and there's one for $1100 on Shmups now (currently unsold). At the other end of the spectrum - the crazy, 165,000 Yen copy at suruga-ya also appears to have sold :eh:

I paid £800 for one last month on UKVAC - cheap UK shipping and no customs or PayPal currency conversion shenanigans...so I was fairly happy with that :)

Questions about the worth of Super Neo 29 Candy/Capcom impress

Post by ShayminSky » July 8th, 2018, 6:57 pm

Hello everyone. I am a newer member but I've lurked/ researched for a bit about purchasing a Candy Cabinet. Incidentally, There is a "store" by where I live that has had 3 Candy Cabinets in the back for quite some time. I don't think I've ever seen them on ever and I've been to the place multiple times over several years. She owns two Capcom impress Cabinets and a Super Neo 29 Candy.

I recently got my first job out of college 3 months ago and now that I have a substantial amount of revenue coming I figured now would be the time to ask. I talked with the owner and she was a little nervous about it, she knew some stuff but not a whole lot. I asked if she would entertain a serious offer and she said yes, but she wouldn't walk the cabinets with me at the time because she was the only person running the store. I set up a date with her to walk the Cabinets, I was hoping I could ask everyone about what a good price to pay for the cabinets based on what I know/what can be inferred.

here's the image gallery link for everyone to see, I tried to document everything i could think of.
https://imgur.com/a/7APefHW

WHAT I DO KNOW
1. She bought these 3 cabinets as part of a group Buy over 17 years ago (2001). She claims to have paid $600 for each Cabinet plus shipping. Seems Like a good deal for the impress Cabinets but not the Neo 29 Candy.
2. The game PCB's that she remembered having in the machines were metal slug 3 ( in the neo 29) and a TMNT game that she couldn't remember the title of. Each game has a pcb but its probably been so long since she turned them on the she doesn't recall.
3. one thing that doesn't come across very well in the photos is that these cabinets were beat up physically and super yellowed out. The impress cabs were especially dirty and one of them had dried up pop or some junk in the marquee. If the impress cabs were sold they would need all new sticks and buttons put in.
4. According to her the Super Neo 29 Candy is a 2 slot MVS, but that model was originally supposed to only be a one slot mvs/jamma board. So there is the possibility that someone modded the Cabinet to fit a 2 slot MVS.

WHAT I DON'T KNOW
1.I don't know what they look like on the inside or how to open them. I could have fiddled with it to find out but I didn't want thrown out/ lose my chance. So I don't know anything about the state of the wiring in each machine/if the buttons work.
2. I couldn't check for monitor burn either, I know that that will be the large deciding factor for the worth of these cabinets. I have an idea of how to throw the impress cabs into test mode but not so much on the Neo Candy, if someone has some advice on that i would greatly appreciate it.
3. I don't know if she has the marquees or not for each machine. My guess is probably no, otherwise they would be attached.

All in all the Cabinet I'm going for is the Super Neo 29 candy depending on the aforementioned MVS issue. The Seller still seems attached to the machines so I only really wanted to start with one, but If I could get two for a good bundle I would do that as well.

Based on what I could find online, and the information I have so far,I would offer her about 650 for for the Neo Candy with Metal slug 3 in it. The impress cabs I would want standalone with no pcb and offer about 600 for it. My prices are kind of based on the only prices that I could find for the two that weren't clearly eBay prices, from the site coinopexpress.com.

If anyone has any better price guidelines or any advice to give me regarding these cabinets I would be very grateful. I've already watched several videos about these particular cabinets and guides on buying candy cabinets, and was hoping that someone could give me some information that is more tailored to the current state of this deal.

Thanks for your help everyone!

Hello ShayminSky. Welcome to the forum. for future reference, there is a valuation thread located here:

https://forum.arcadeotaku.com/viewtopic ... 43#p498243

As for the value of the cabs: $600 per cab is very cheap. If the monitors are burn-free, then you are onto 3 bargains here.

Do not worry about changing the controls (that's the easy part). If they're dirty inside, you can give them a good clean.

You may need to send the chassis off for a recap (maybe the PSUs too).

They look very nice cosmetically (from your pics).

I wouldn't put too much stock into coinopexpress prices - they haven't updated their site/prices in years.

Maybe I am missing something, but those cabs look to be in pretty good condition to me. I'd buy them right now as-is and have them shipped if I had any space for them.

Assuming they power on and work, $600 is low IMO, but if you can get them for that price, more power to you.

I would be all over the three. Honestly, all three look really, really good. The TMNT board if original is worth $200-400 depending on the title. Metal Slug 3 costs a few bones these day as well.

If and when you get them and you have no keys for them, DO NOT DRILL the locks if they're original. Either get original keys for them or pick the locks.
