    Don't think so. People that got the collector edition also got the pin badge. Correct me if I'm wrong. Also that's what has been posted across the net and in this thread as well.

    Edit: Yup, like I said I'm missing one pin badge

    I'll double check for sanity's sake, but I would think taking it out of the packaging and opening the book that they would be obvious.

    The art prints I believe are in the book. I'll unseal it when I get home. The pin badge that was missing was not in the package however. The other book that had the pin badge had it wrapped in bubblewrap and it was attached to the cardboard box the book came with, hard to miss.

    Yes, the prints are inside the book, in a small folder just behind the cover.
    Actually, I missed the pin badge upon opening the box and found it later when I was folding the cartons to throw them away!

    Frazier, thank you, and thank you to all the great people involved in this project.

    This book is sexy. Neo Geo has always had the feel of being the Rolls Royce of gaming, and the camera work here, the quality of the materials used, the meticulously curated layout, typeface and font, not to mention the masterful use of colour all come together to continue to drive home the fact that this is a special brand.

    I bought the Super Famicom Art book from Bitmap some months back, and not to take away from how fantastic that book is, this Neo Geo Visual History feels like it's on another level.

    Again, thank you for making this happen.

    oh, fair enough, my bad. I'm missing a 2nd pin too then, but I'm really not fussed.

    It's not that of a big deal but since one book is not mine and I'll be keeping the Mega Edition it would be nice to have the second one as well.

    Edit: On another note the t-shirt is really really nice! I got a medium and it fits me just fine. No shaggy sleeves, a nice tight fit and it's rather long for a medium sized t-shirt.

    It's also a bit stretchy, just enough.

    FYI I'm 1.88 currently at 87kg bodyweight.

    Frazer, do you know if the SNK t-shirts by fangamer are the same size as this one or smaller?

    Got mine last night.

    I'm very impressed. Ererything about this is dripping with quality. The paper/ink, binding, photos, research, everything about this is really immaculate and high-quality. My hat's off to Sam and everyone involved with this project. Well done.

    Where's that guy with the Patrick Bateman avi that used to make those long and oddly sexual posts about his mint shelf AES collection in glass display cases and showing them to the women that he has in his mansion? I just got this book in the mail and I feel it deserves that treatment

    I've been a big fan of Bitmap Books for a while, but this thing murders anything else they've ever done, it's so good!

    I got the Collector's edition and almost threw the pin out because the bubble wrap iit was in looked like part of the packaging. That would've been my bad.

    Frazer came back to me on Twitter. If you are missing a pin badge or whatever from your package, send an email to hello@bitmapbooks.co.uk and they'll sort you out.

    Not a fagget. If it's that SNES book by bitmap books it's really nice.
