Wanted: SNK Candy

Post by ChrisBEANS »

Would absolutely love an SNK Candy 25 or 26.
Only interested in one with a chrome CP surround (unless the price really is right on one with the white CP).
Ideally with the rotate mech, but not essential.
Also, Espgaluda II, PCB only as I’m trying to save a few quid, and ideally in the UK to avoid import tax.
I’ve seen the couple of kits available, but if I can save £500+ buy getting a straight PCB, that’s definitely my preference!
Could ‘possibly’ be talked into trading a Windy II or even my restored, big Electrocoin six slot Neo cab for/towards the right Candy. Possibly…

Interested in more information too.

I’ve done some googling, but this place is probably as good a resource as anywhere on the net…


Best I can tell, the 26 has a rotate mech, and the 25 is the variant with the chrome CP surround, and there’s no cab with both?
Both are JAMMA wired, both cater for 15kHz and 24kHz, and can be used tate (obviously the one with a rotate mech can!).

That about it for differences?

I might be interested in a Windy instead of the Candy.

Would still much prefer the SNK Candy, but I’d be very happy to have a Windy as my tate cab sitting next to the Windy II.

Starting to worry about getting hold of Espgaluda II too.
Was offered a PCB for $1200 US, but it was right when I bought Batrider and I simply couldn’t do both at once.

Since then I’ve seen a few kits come up at €1800. Each time the next kit is in slightly worse condition than the kit before, but each sells for the same price regardless.

Anyone got a PCB they want to go to a good home before I’m priced out of the hobby?

It’s pretty much the last thing on the list…

There's two cabs called Candy 25.

The first is very similar (potentially identical?) to the MVS u4 except for the top and, in some cases, a chrome cp: https://www.hard--candy.com/wiki/candy/Candy_25

The other is the same as the Candy26 and, as I understand it, does come with the rotate mech: http://ikotsu.blogspot.com/2011/12/snk- ... k-199.html

I've never seen a Candy25/26 cab with a chrome cp surround, so I don't think they existed.

Assuming that the Candy25 comes with the toshiba/toei monitor combination then this would in my view be the best of both worlds.

I think I must've been imsunderstood because the picture posted actually illustrates my point.. I can say with a high degree of confidnece that:
  • The cab pictured above - a Candy 25 - doesn't have a rotate mechanism.
    The cab pictured above has the same dimiensions as an MVSU4 and is, superficial matters aside, essentially the same cab.
    the cab pictured is meaningfully shallower than a Candy26/25, and as such I don't think it could physically accomodate a rotation mechanism.
    I've never seen a Candy26/25 cab (i.e. the one with the rotate mechanism) with a chrome cp surround.
Having said that, I think that the CP surrounds are probably interchangable between all of the cabs mentioned above (from memory, when I had one of each type in my house, they were the same dimensions), so you could probably get a chrome cp surround and put it on a Candy26/25.

Well, wow, that's contrary to everything I've read on the subject. It's also a much nicer form factor than my Candy26 which is quite deep.

Nice cab.

See, it’s just perfect!!

If I could find one, with a rotate mech, I could chrome the CP myself, bung on a 1l6b panel, move on three other cabs, and I’d be left with a matching pair of U4 for all things NG, and the Candy for everything else.
I’ve got a 2p extender on the way, so on the rare occasions there might be some two player stuff going on then player 2 can be on the 27inch Multisync monitor via a supergun, and that same monitor can take care of all things 31kHz.

Streamlined, dream setup.

Who’s got one?

‘Galuda II is in the post…

Anyone care to offer their opinion on what a trade of an SNK Candy for a Windy II would look like +/- cash??
