Hello Everyone,

We reached the final stage of NEOSD PRO Shels mold production.

Mold is built and the first inyected pieces have been produced to test it.

Now the mold needs to be polished and we can start producing shells.

This mold will allow us o make shells in different colors and transparent aswel.

Here are some pictures of the inyection tests, take in mind that recycled plastic has been used to produce those tests and mold need to be polished to get the final results. So final shells will be produced with brand new ABS plastic and with polished mould so quality will be really high (such as super sd system 3 shells)

Anyways, here are the pics :

This is not a color at all, its a mix of recycled plastics.

We will try to have two colors for the produced shells : solid black and black smoke transparent

Looks great! Is that headphone port for games that support link play?

You guys should also consider doing limited runs on shell only. You could make any number of different colors for people to buy seperately in the future.

Looks nice, I see the shells will be the same for MVS and AES just like NeoSD, that's cool too. MVS deserves cool shells :)

I'll add my 'looking nice' comment. Will be cool to see these in smoke

yes, same shell for both, but this time only one microsd hole. One of the port windows will have the microsd, usb and jack holes and the other one will be solid without holes.

From a Frenchie that of course doesn't understand the meaning of the word PREVIEW in the title, nonetheless.

Cool .... we can still rotate the pcb within the chell ..... for the few with a omega or similar cmvs, I hope I can get one but i guess with the shortage of parts there won’t be enough in the next few month

Nice one. Out of interest, how many PET bottles you need for the clear case ;)

Out of curiosity; could you fit normal mvs boards in this shell? If so, why not sell them loose? They'd sell as hotcakes.

honestly, i just have a printed prototype here (from 3 months ago), i will check this weekend but i think maybe those will fit.

Why not sell those ? cause shipment would ruin the party. In 2 weeks we should have the new shop/web ready and we will only work with dhl. Ship a shell to usa would be about 18 euros, this ruins the deal at all

I actually like the recycled plastic shell.

You could make an eco-friendly version, I'd definitely support it.

shipping fees are part of the hobby ;) no one should add them buying or selling stuff ;) no one sells new & empty shells worldwide... if the price is around 9,99 € this could be an easy & relaxed business. and i am sure that a few ppl would make some customs labels for free... i dont know how the production costs are, but imho shells would sell. and i expect that ppl would always buy 5 - 20 at once...

Maybe they just want to sell a highly polished flash cart solution rather than getting into the empty shell business.

Correct,
We are not interestd on plastic business.
We did a second mold for neosd pro to honor the neogeo. This has been a great effort to us on the economics side :
Paying molds (original neosd mold was just 1 mold for the 4 pieces of plastic the shell is compossed of), neosd pro project uses 3 molds
Paying china to spain shipping for the shells.

Selling shells at 10 euos, we would loose money and time. Once we have the final numbers on the table : production priece per shell + shipping + molds we will do the real maths but i would not be surprised that for the neosd pro quantities we expect to sell, every shell may end costing us 30 euros at all (i am counting here molds cost, shipping from china to spain and shell injection cost)

Looks slick. Wish there was also a big Neo Geo embossed on it, or SNK logo, but probably never gonna happen because of the rights stuff.

Seems so. The cover photos in the other thread don't work either.

We changed the servers and some images got broken, those are still alive but the links just changed.

PRO is going pretty well, we are just working on what we should have done with the original neosd, packaging and so

I think my answer from yesterday looked like a bit "yeah yeah, its all ok", so i decided to upload a video in order to show NEOSD PRO MVS.

Both NEOSD PRO MVS and NEOSD PRO AES are done, we are just working into produce those : sourching chips, finishing the manual, boxart and so.

We donīt have a release date cause this time we are going to sell the carts only when in stock. We canīt live with backorders anymore and we are not going to rush any aspect. So please, be patient, its done, its near and will come soon, but we donīt have any date.
