Throwback Thursday! Capcom Mini-Cute!

By | February 25, 2016

Here’s the inspiration for the Wall Candy Cab: the Capcom Mini-Cute! I bought this years ago and still haven’t finished its restoration. While it certainly has the mod contours it is only slightly less obtrusive than Western arcade cabinets. It’s also about 3x as heavy given that it’s made of steel. Steel is a lot more difficult to work with, so it gets nicked on materials and skill stats too. Not to mention money; restorations of any sort are expensive, this one especially so. The paint job had to be done “professionally (don’t get me started).” And If you can source the parts, they’ll need to be shipped from Japan.

All that work and years later it’s still not finished. It did allow me to identify the project’s failings though. It required too much time, skill, space, and money to complete satisfactorily. All these issues I would go on to remedy with my Wall Candy Cab!
