All Known Official Sega Panels for Astro through New Net City

When Sega launched the Astro City Candy cabinet they gave it a modular control panel to make swapping the panel as easy as swapping the the game board. They continued using this control panel Design up through the New Net City and many cabinets in between.


Some of their competitors’ cabinets are even compatible with these panels including the Taito Egret II and 3 as well as the Taito Vewlix and the Delta 32, among others.

Here is a list of all of the officially released panels that I’ve been able to find in this style. If you know of others please send me a photo and I’ll add it to the list.

Sega Virtua Striker 2002 2P Panel
Sega Virtua Tennis 2P Panel
