I just obtained a NOS Espgaluda kit. 

The flyer pack has 50 flyers in it.. counted them.   :facepalm:

Also, on the bottom of the flyer pack was this letter.  I have no idea what it says.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2089470/Espgaluda%20Letter.pdf

It's a request to arcade operators to please distribute the flyers. It just has some introductory info for their cell phone games/website to convince people the flyers are worth putting out

I've kinda stopped caring about posters but what does the B1 DFK BL poster look like? I don't recall seeing one.

Want. Did it get a Matsuri run did you know? I'm guessing not as I only recall the B2 version.

It did not, just the B2 like you mentioned.

It's a very cool poster.  I like when they bother to use some game screen shots and avoid almost naked young girls.

How'd you do that so fast?  I've taken a couple runs at framing the B1 version but the custom framing scared me off both times.

I'll try again soon.

 =D I had the matsuri poster and a spare frame. My custom frames cost a fortune but they're so worth it.

Does the Mushi Tama kit have different ball colours or should they all be pink and blue like the page 1 example? My used kit came today and had White and orange balls, I just wondered if they were different from box to box or if these were replacements

I found all my old kit pics and will put them up in the main post soon. Man, some of them were really beautiful, and all were mint and complete. Seeing them again brings back memories, and a bit of regret for selling some of them.

EDIT: Done.

I'm going to start uploading close-up pics of the kits I owned many years ago. Here are pics of a MFBL box:

I found a pic of the inside of a SDOJ box (first posted on Cave's now defunct blog site in April 2012):



I noticed there is a cutaway in the box insert to hold the PCB feet (that is actually really cool). Was SDOJ the first game to have this? I have a Cave/Annex box with my MFBLA kit, and it does not have this cutaway in the insert.

I have a full Esprade kit with matching serials (pcb & box). I have the poster as well so I can snap a few pics if you want.

Hey I'd like to see that, specifically what the box looks like.  I'm trying to confirm if the DonPachi, DDP, and ESP RA.DE. kit boxes are all the same or not.

DDP and ESP RaDe are the same. DP is probably a similar but shorter Atlus box but I've never seen one with matching serials.

Am I correct in saying that the Reco figure that comes with the limited edition PS2 game is the same as the one in the Mushihime-Tama kit?  They look identical to me, can anyone confirm that they are the same?

Also, there appears to be 2 different versions of the Deathsmiles skeleton thing...I know it sounds crazy but they look slightly different.  One has black lines filled in on the body and the other doesn't, there is also a different pull tab thing on the top of it's head.

I think these were promotional items for some pirate medal game thing.

What about this:



The tag attached to the skeleton is clearly says Deathsmiles.

FWIW I bought a few brand new DS kits back in the day, and none of them came with that skeleton thing. So if you want it just to have it, cool, but I wouldn't consider it part of the kit.

I think perhaps theres a DS skeleton and one for the pirate game then. It wasn't an official part of the kit, they were handed out at AOU/JAMMA. Leftovers may have been added to kits by certain suppliers.
