My mother used to be an advertising specialties sellers (those people who get you anything that can have a logo on it, from a hat to a watch). I have the ablity to get these type of things at great prices direct from the manufacturers rather than having to pay 40-140% more going through an ASI distributor. I think that now since there are so many loyal Neo-geo.com fans out here, this would be a very cool thing to do. What do you think Shawn? What does everyone else think?

If you want to market neo-geo.com shirts, mugs, caps, pens, or whatever, go right ahead. I won’t charge a commission or a royalty fee. I would be happy just knowing neo-geo.com was getting more media. I’m sure you or your mom would come up with a better logo than the current one. I’m always open-minded to ways that improve this site.

It would really depend on the demand. Most of the good stuff you have to have a quantity. Id love to get some nice fake-leather jackets or atleast some hats going, but its usually 12+... the prices go down the more you get. So anyone else who would be interested in very cool wares with the neo-geo.com name on them, give a shout here. If we can get enough people who want some, Im sure we can get the ball rolling.

A T-shirt would do me well. Perhaps a notepad & pen(cil) as well. I'm all for the advertizing of good things.

I’m interested in purchasing at least two of every neo-geo.com item that is produced.

Dreamh2o
09-29-2000, 04:19 AM
Well thats eight... We can vote on design, everyone has to wear them, or display them so they need to be cool... I was thinking a large, Bigger Badder Better Dog on the back, but not the phrase... If there was a phrase I was thinking of "wanna be a bad dog?" and a large NEO-GEO.COM and then of the front a small pocket size area that has the original Neo Geo Pro Gear spec bios screen, but with NEO GEO being NEO GEO.COM. The shirts would be white. Or we could use the Giga Pro bios, and make black shirts... the black sounds a little more sharp. Id like to make them as big as they come, unless you all need them small for some reason??

Robi15
09-29-2000, 04:44 AM
Well i agree with the idea that the t-shirt beeing black and the 330 mega gear bor spec bios screen on back with white text. On the front there could be in upper corner a Neo-Geo.com text. Much smaller and it could be in a different colour or something like that.
I think that Neo-Geo.com should have a some sort of Logotype.

09-29-2000, 10:11 AM
White are cheapest, and in the quantity we are thinking this is probably the best way to go. I made some neat artwork. Tell me what you think of these? The first is the actual logo, the second is how it would be placed on the shirt. Can have it on the back OR front, what does everyone want??

It looks ok. I would prefer the original start up screen. Max 330(Gigapower) pro gear spec. On the front or back. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif I donno. Let's see what other people think.

Well it says Neo-Geo.com but I think Shawn said he didn't care. Put me down for the second version

My thoughts....

I like the shirts that are light gray, It is hard to descreibe. They are not a solid color. but I would prefer that over white.

Also, as far as putting SNK on the shirt, that should not be a problem, who would come after you? SNK of Japan? Yeah right! Tell them to go visit someone else first! http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

Also, you do know that you can display pictures in the posts here if you want to do that.

Some thoughts, a t-shirt with a pocket, on the pocket have the:

NEO-GEO.COM
GIGAPOWER
PRO GEAR SPEC


I would also put the word under the dog on the back, if it is used!

Or, maybe.... 'Got Neo?' Under the dog.

I like the dog though! http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

Some thoughts....

Neo Bomber Man
09-29-2000, 04:06 PM
The front of model #2 looks like a great design, but a breast pocket would be rather a nice thing to have. Personally, I have and always will hate the dogtag logo, so you haven't my vote for that.

Could you also provide a list, if possible, of least to most expensive colours? Just a list, no dollar figures, would be sort of useful.

What about the Neo·Geo logo, with the yellow and blue faces? Does anyone other than me care for that? I think it would go superbly on a pocket, since it's small apart from attractive, and original. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

09-29-2000, 05:36 PM
The last one Shawn and I were working on was http://www.videogameland.com/ng-tee-4.jpg
This is still a work in progress. We had talked about possibly putting MAI on the back http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif I had to go do some work on my auctions (120 closings today) so Iv not had any more time to work on this. Im going to bed now but will work on this more when I get up around 4 AM. keep the idea's coming.

Oh and here is a general guide to what this all costs.

$17 for a white shirt
$25 for a colored (any color)
$6 for print on BOTH sides.

So we are looking at $17-31 plus shipping on shirts on quantity under 12. When we get over 12 and head upto 100 the price goes down (over 100 almost cuts it in half).

I agree with Shawns thought that its probably worth $31 to a die hard Neo fan to have a cool collectable... so Iv stopped thinking cheap... like I did on model 1.

We should have some cool models in the next day! ..off to dream of Mai, and why shes sitting on my tee shirt...

Todd

I definately like the front of the second one you did. Dont know if i like the dog though. Maybe itll grow on me, who knows?

charles
09-30-2000, 09:31 AM
Only one problem for me with the Mai theme... my girlfriend wouldn't allow me to wear it. Now understand she gives me a lot of freedom in other areas.. I game as much as I want, I hang out with the guys when I want, etc, etc. She just wouldn't let me wear it in public.. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/frown.gif

How about an alternate design?

chohan
09-30-2000, 10:38 AM
Hey,

Can't you do Mai or Terry or other fighters on the T-Shirt? and when and where could I actually order it?

Dreamh2o
09-30-2000, 10:46 AM
So far we are just in the "kicking it around" stages. It will be a month or so after we settle on a design. It would truly be cool if we coul make a standard FRONT, and then have a couple designs of SNK favorites on the backs... collect the whole set... http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif What do you think?

chohan
09-30-2000, 10:49 AM
Oeh that seems cool

outsider
09-30-2000, 11:10 AM
I agree 100%. Standard front, I like the black front btw... a couple of alternate backs would be cool too, maybe Terry doing a Burn Knuckle..

Robi15
09-30-2000, 03:31 PM
DreamH2o> You must keep the (second) front. The Neo-Geo.com that looks like the gigapower pios screen is beautiful! That's it. THAT IS NEO-GEO.COM LOGO! http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

On the back i don't know however. But I defenetly want that t-shirt.

Robi15

Dreamh2o
09-30-2000, 05:41 PM
Well what are your thoughts Shawn? Where do we make these shirts say "Neo-Geo.com" . I know you said maybe that we shouldnt put the Neo-Geo.com on the front corner. What are your ideas? People seem to really like the idea of the series... Maybe we could do them in a certain number... Just one run of Mai... 24 shirts... when gone, then 24 of Terry..., and only a few people will get the whole set http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/wink.gif hehe.

That's great. I like the second Neo Geo design myself, over the dog design. I like Mai pic as well, but not the logo. Over all, much better than the "Bigger Badder, B..." or whatever t-shirts.

A question. Any idea about having a Terry jacket w/ a star on it? http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

Master Terry Bogard
09-30-2000, 05:54 PM
How about a Terry's KOF hat?

Shawn
09-30-2000, 06:38 PM
Let’s ditch the doggie. I would prefer to see Mai or Shigen on the back. Using black or gray t-shirts sounds good to me. I agree that the pocket would look even better. We need to think of a good quote though. If we use Mai “Bigger is Better”, or Shigen “Pure 2D Power.” Be sure to share your ideas, the more we brainstorm, the better the wear we can produce.

Master Terry Bogard
09-30-2000, 07:19 PM
Yeah. I like bigger the badder/better on Mai. I guess same thing can be used for Shigen as well. Since he is all that.

Neo Bomber Man
09-30-2000, 11:33 PM
Mai, oh Mai! Nice design. Since this will likely be confined to SNK characters, I'll suggest who is perhaps my all-time favourite of them: Geese Howard. Maybe with Terry or Billy? Or even Tung, Terry & Geese, the new "Legendary Trio of Garou," at least with somewhat similar fighting styles.

I'd have to agree with NEOBomberMan on this one. I really would like the Yellow/Blue smiley logo on the back.I DO like the front design on #4, with the GIGA-POWER, and Neo-Geo.com logo on a breast pocket. I'd pay upwards of $40.00 for shirt like that.

Robi15
10-01-2000, 05:34 AM
I'd like the term "Pure 2D power" That could be on the back side. This can be quite a debate though.

I did think about actually 100% replicating Terry's Hat. Not like those cheesy SNK ones that dont look 100% alike. The jackets cool though. Iv got to work on shipping a couple hundred packages, but as soon as I am done Ill start making some new character designs, and we can try out the blue/yellow face logo. We still need to figure out where to put the Neo-geo.com name, we want these to be an advertisment themselves, not just snk/neo memorablia http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

Just for the record, this project hasnt been abandoned just because you hadnt heard anything for a few days http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif Im just really busy with work right now, and will get to more of the designes for the weekend. Anyone with cool, hi-res SNK character art with little or no background should email me or post to a URL for my use! Thanks

Neo Bomber Man
10-04-2000, 02:59 AM
Yeah, this is just a windbreaker, but I'm sure the real thing exists over there. By the way, in Japan it's possible to buy Terry's jacket from Garou: MotW, for a mere ¥41,790!

Anyone else for Rugal, Vice & Mature?

Please, whatever comes of this, keep NGF out of the picture- what about anti-NGF wear? With sayings like, "when you get ripped off we get off!" I REALLY hope something does come of having neo-geo.com merchandise, it would be sweet to have something advertising or endorsing this site.

An Athena mousepad? NOW you're talking, benares! ^_^

As for the shirts, mousepads, etc., wouldn't it be possible to use those iron-on transfers that you can make with your printer. For instance, if someone came up with some images we could use, we could print up our own iron ons and make the shirts ourselves.

I realize that wouldn't look as good as professionally made shirts, but it is another option.
