Other than the huge sit downs and upright woodys, which candys are not yet represented?

Some of these cabs are impossibly rare and may never enter the hands of collectors (Take your pick there's a fair few listed) but I also know that some models are already in members collections (Jaleco Pony Mk IV, Konami Windy II, Sega Lindbergh Universal, Sega Swing and a fair few of the SNK cabs)

Capcom New Concept II
Capcom STATUS 18
Irem Madonna 33
Jaleco Lo-Pro
Jaleco Pony Mk IV
Jaleco Table Pony
Jaleco Table Pony 25
Konami Domy HV
Konami Domy Theater
Konami Gamezone One
Konami Plasma Display
Konami Windy II
Namco Cyberlead II
Namco Dynalive
Namco Excelcabinet
Sammy Lunaria
Sammy Seychelles
Sammy Tosh
Sega City
Sega Lindbergh Universal
Sega Megalo 410
Sega New Versus City
Sega T-13 Table
SNK Candy 25
SNK MV25TA-0
SNK MV25UP-0
SNK MVS-U1/33
SNK MVS-U2
SNK MVS-U2/25
SNK MVS-U2/29
SNK MVS-U2/33
SNK MVS-U4/29
SNK MVS-U4/33
SNK Neo 29
SNK Neo Candy 25
SNK SC14-2
SNK Super Neo 29
SNK Super Neo 29 Type II
SNK Video Game
Sunsoft Laana
Taito ML-5
Taito MM-5
Taito MT-2
Taito MT-5
Taito Vewlix VS
Tecmo Kyotaro 29
Taito Video Game
Tecmo Kyotaro Deluxe
Tecmo Sound Lava
Tecmo Urban

Which leads me nicely onto what are the best represented cabs so far
Sega Naomi (Various flavours) x35
Taito Egret II x33
Sega New Astro City x27
Sega Blast City x25
Sega Aero City x22
Sega Astro City x19
Capcom Mini Cute x13
Sammy Atomiswave SD x11
Sega New Net City (Japanese spec/Original) x8
Taito Egret 3 x6
Taito Vewlix C x6
Sega New Net City (Conversion) x5
Weche OK-Baby x5
Less than 5 registered owners for all other models

Any surprises?
Well this thread must have appealed to Capcom Mini Cute owners as its the 7th most owned model on the list. As more people register their cabs the Cute will drop down the list as they are not as common as this list would suggest.

Predictably Sega hold the top spots. Naomi being numero uno followed by E2 (the only non Sega cab in the top 6) then NAC, BC, Aero and AC.


Thank you to everyone who has contributed thus far.

Keep em coming folks :)

A great read in both statistics and in finding out what other members have so that I may shake a green fist at them.

Tip-ex marks n all! :lol:

The irony is that I will be leaving my flat soon as I'm moving into my gfs one bed flat to save for a house and letting my parents take my two bed place. I can't take the cabs with me but at least they'll be snug where they are at least until I get a new place with a mancave! :awe:
