    You're missing the bigger picture that no one anywhere asked for ANY holiday-themed version ever.

    Meanwhile, they had the opportunity to do the Big Red version that thousands of consumers DID ask for, and they missed it. Came really close, but not quite.


    Also, someone on twitter brought up the point that the buttons and top of the joystick on both the unit itself and the controllers are gold. Gold plastic has a history of becoming brittle over time to the point it shatters at the merest touch. Grown men who collect children's toys call this phenomenon "GPS", or Gold Plastic Syndrome. I have no idea if the riddle of gold plastic has been solved in the past however many years, but it's something to consider.

    It's barely a religious holiday outside the bible thumping USA.

    You think Japan associates Xmas with Jesus? Nope, it's about chubby Americans buying stuff they can't afford.

    I got the Neo Geo Mini. I think it’s overpriced and should at least have a built in battery. And why the fuck did they mess with the button placement? And the controllers were cheapened.
    Despite all that it still looks fucking rad on my coffee table.

    We only mentioned every thing you brought up like a million times in this thread. We are now on the 39th page.

    you are the definition of a chump. do you have a framed Nintendo Power #1 hanging up in your Man Cave as well? Maybe 20 or so Pop! figures that you bought at your local retro store?

    Looks like Ben Heck is probably going to improve the design.

    I don't know about improve.. I guess what he is building with it will be better than that shitty neo geo x thing.

    It looks like SNK themselves have scalped this item out of my hands; scarcity (15,000 units worldwide) + $ (about $190.00) is too deterring. I guess I should thank SNK for saving me $.

    https://twitter.com/SNKPofficial_jp/...49873397792769

    Maybe in the future we'll get a proper AES Gold mini called the 100 Mega Shock Edition with 100 preloaded games in a cart-style clam-shell carry-case, SNES classic HDMI quality, and Neo-Geo Pad with classic button placement.

    Also, a limited Neo-Geo Mini AES x Akira 2019 Red Color themed edition next year would be neat. I know Akira has only influenced SNK with games like Last Resort and KOF 2001, etc. but as Akira takes place in 2019 this would be a cool collaboration. How cool would it be to have the box this would come in adorned with NG characters illustrated by Katsuhiro Otomo? I'm thinking a package illustration similar to the PC Engine Shuttle.

    Why stop there? Let's get Stephen Spielberg involved as well (there were SNK characters in his movie "Ready Player 1"). Heck, why not also get Capcom on board and have them also make a CPS2 mini, but with the capability to do link-up play with the Neo Geo mini for some real crossover tag battles!? Only then could we unlock Sylvie's special KO where her top comes off when she falls in the water. Fuck, let's go the full 10 yards... ROTs nipples embossed on the inside of the Neo Geo/Capcom mini and only the hackers (like Bendover Heckendorn) who open the case will be rewarded with that special special fanservice.

    Come on man... Let the creative juices fly (wear goggles)!

    I love Ben Heck's hacks but he has not been doing them like he did in the past; this is a nice return to form. I think he is working with multiple companies now so it takes away from awesomeness like this.

    Yeah, it’s nice to see Ben going back to what he does best... not a bad looking little project.

    Is there any hope the NeoGeo Mini will be hacked? I want attract modes to start automatically and cycle between the roms, like the actual cabinet. I don't want to manually have to choose every rom.

    Yea, someone will eventually hack it but who cares?

    That was a great read. Thank you for sharing the link. Man I love Daraku Tenshi! I really hope that Zerodiv comes through and releases it on the switch!
