Is there a decently priced place to get replacement shock boxes....Neotropolis has them, but I don't want to open THAT can of worms...

I need a few, is there any place that sells them at a "decent" price?

Not sure which ones you're referring to, so here's a bit of clarification:

SNK manufactured brand "old-style" Neo Geo home cart case - this is the soft plastic case with cardboard backing undeneath vinyl plastic cover that comes with a fragile plastic tray insert for housing home cart games manufactured prior to 1995.

SNK manufactured brand "new-style" or "snaplock" Neo Geo home cart case - this is the hard plastic case with the SNK logo in the mold, and a snap locking clasp, for housing home cart games manufactured starting in 1995 w/Fatal Fury 3

Off-brand video tape storage case originally located and presented by respected Neo member BigBear and dubbed the "Shockbox" - this is the molded soft plastic case that perfectly fits MVS games to create a collectible look on the shelf

The Shockboxes will set you back $7-8 from SouthTown (www.southtown-homebrew.com) but the official SNK Home Cart cases will be be between $20 for old-style to $40+ for snaplocks.

Sincerely,

Mikhail

SNAP LOCK and SOFT BOX AVAILABLE! Another site offering multiple options to buy in bulk:
(It will be nice to have a group of fans buy in bulk over a 100 of the SNAP LOCK ones so shipping and price will become affordable to the rest of us)
Any takers?

I've never actually tried the replicas from saveyourgame.it but I will say that the ones at neooldstore.com are inferior to the ones at the Neostore. I personally would prefer nothing but the original when it comes to AES snaplocks, to me its worth getting a KoF95 or Samsho III just to replace a snap lock case.

Right, lets incomplete 2 great games so we could complete another game. Why not just buy the replica case for your conversions.

I was talking about replacing a bad snap-lock case with a good one for your more valuable games. So the two games would still remain complete but with a worse snap-lock condition. I could care less about conversions and what style case they came with.
