    Just wanted to add something..

    I was thinking about this the other day.. I recently found a few CPS3 games.. and I noticed that they all have very nice label art.. also they are monochrome.. some blue, some orange..

    perhaps this would be a nice idea for these new MVS shells.. you know.. to differentiate from the AES coloured labels.. give them a more arcade feel while still holding some aesthetic touch..

    what do people think? If it's a silly idea just slap me and I'll shut up

    When I first imagined the labels for these shells I immediately thought of something like the STV carts the have a colored border and then have the normal art inside the border.

    Ah you mean the ones that look like grey famicom carts? Haven't seen them in the flesh just did a quick google image search.. they seem to only have the title of the game in a coloured border without any art. Are those the ones you refer to?

    Yup, as far as the border that is. Instead of plain white in the middle it would be game art and meg count and what not.

    Sounds cool

    What do you think about the monochrome idea?

    I wonder how far this project has gone.. I love MVS carts the way they are.. but nothing wrong with having the option of consolising them If that's what we can call it.. I'd buy 5 or 6 then decide what I like better..

    It's funny but I can see these becoming very desirable in the foreseeable future.. maybe I'm wrong but just a hunch

    This would be good to use as replacements or for MVS were the original lable is gone or so poorly mangaled its time for something better

    I'd buy one simply to replace my banana yellow 161-1 cart's shell.

I like how the label space is much bigger AND there's no seam. These new shells basically fix all the problems with the original AES shells.
    ..and no more heads chopped off by the fold of the label!! If you know what I mean! Haha! Seriously.. I love SNK.. but these things seem soo lazy!!

    I had a talk with my mold injection guy and we came up with numbers and prices on the shells. These are what I need in preorders to make it happen. Right now, I just want to figure out how many people want to participate in the first run. I don't need payments right now, just "soft" commitments meaning that you'll follow through once it becomes available. When one of the minimums is met, I'll put out details on payment.

    1000 pcs - $20 each
    1500 pcs - $15 each
    2000+ pcs - $12.50 each

    The plan is to do the shells in black. In the meantime, I'll have a prototype made with a label so people can get a good idea of what it looks like in practice. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Hi.

    I'd be in at 15 usd each. But can you guarantee AES-like quality? Would be nice to see some pics of your prototype

    It would be easy to guarantee aes-like or higher quality. I already use a higher grade plastic in the omega than what is used in the aes.

    Man, you know I'm in for this. Can't wait to see your prototype pics.

    Seems like a very cool idea and I would probably replace 90% of my shells with this (and just keep the original shells in a box for collecting purposes).

    No harm in making stuff look nicer

    I'm in too! I don't have many MVS games (only a dozen) right now, but I would replace the shells on all of them. I've always wanted them to look like a retail game. Of course, I would save the original shells for collecting purposes. If the price can be around $12 - $15 per shell, that would be ok.

    Are cartridge labels factored into the shells?

    I'd be in for at least a few of them to start out with, and if I like them I may convert my whole collection.
    Whatcha gonna do?
