SDOJ Super Limited Edition. Brand new and sealed (though not anymore as I opened it up right after this pic was taken). Found it on YAJ. I wanted it mainly for the toresetsu (which I don't think was available elsewhere) and the art book.

Just arrived: brand new Sigma AV7000 Supergun + 9000TB controller (with JP21 RGB cable and Jamma harness).




I had one of these years ago and loved it to pieces, but had to sell it when I moved to Japan. This set is just as nice as my old one and this time I'm not selling.

Just waiting for my OSSC 1.6 to arrive then I'll be in business.  :righton:

A supergun?

The Sigma AV-7000 is the supergun. I will use the OSSC (upscaler unit) to play it on my LCD monitor with zero added lag + scanlines.  :righton:

Thanks.
Though right now Im set with zero lag and scanlines:   http://www.taitostation.se/     ;)
(And four extra restored monitors in the storage.)

On topic, got no pic but bought a Raiden Fighters JET cart. Got really hyped on the game after trying it at an event.

Wow, four monitors in storage! You're probably set for life.

I'd love to get a cab some day but they're hard to find in good condition and I don't have a lot of space for one (yet).

I still might pick up a Sony PVM/BVM monitor in the near future, though even with that I'll have trouble finding enough space. If this LCD setup is not to my liking, however, I'll go that other route.

PVM/BVMs are really nice, I know some people here in Sweden that picked up some big ones.
I would really like to find a 29" one. (If they exist?)

Thanks, I'm really enjoying playing PCBs again! Like putting a vinyl record on a turntable and lowering the needle, there is something pleasingly organic and ritualistic about connecting a PCB to a jamma harness and turning on the power switch.

I really agree,
Starting up a pcb is so direct and feels so clean. No loading, updating software, sign in etc etc like on consoles.

Now when I have been playing so much Cave Im looking into some other shmups, some of them are still quite cheap on pcb so I buy them for just trying them out, its always cool getting a new pcb in your hands.
I visited a Retro fair the other week and got to try out Raiden Fighters Jet on pcb and it was awesome, so now I bought a cart.

What is the difference between the reprint and the original kit pop?

Lovely.

I am importing the “standard” limited edition from YAJ as I type. Not a cheap game, but will be pleased to have it!

I’ve heard the colors are a bit different in the reprints.

Absolutely amazing. I am looking for one of these. I am based in Germany. Please get in touch [anyone] if you know of one for sale :)

They recently replaced the AV7000 and 9000TB with the 1AV and 3TB, so I would just buy those instead (they are basically the same thing in a slightly different look):

Appreciated (hello from Twitter btw!). So this would play a CAVE PCB? Recommend a "good value" one if I were to start? I hope this isn't thread de-railment :)

It's the best supergun out there. It plays pretty much any PCB you can find and is extremely reliable and easy to use.

IMO the four best CAVE PCBs if you want to spend $1000 or less are Ibara, Mushihimesama, Mushihimesama Futari 1.5 and Espgaluda 2. But if you like older stuff, you might want to look into Donpachi, ESP Ra.De and Espgaluda (all of which are still relatively affordable).

Thank you :)

I think I prefer the look of the older super gun stick, but this still looks ace. Futari would be good. I would love any of the dodonpachis as they're my bag. Going to look into this Super Gun thing a bit more :)
