Beautiful wooden Neo Geo and new sticks give me wood

Analogue Interactive has taken something timeless and made it even more timeless. Their custom Neo Geo systems (made with an original SNK Neo Geo MV-1C motherboard) are made from either walnut or ebonized ash. Wood, folks. We told you about the system when it made its debut, but now it comes in two finishes in a new rebuild, and is now offered with these lovely custom matching joysticks.

For the system, the company slimmed the original design down and reduced all the jacks on the back to one port. Simple, elegant. 

Analogue says that the stick was a vision they had from day one, and that they wanted to create the Holy Grail of all Neo Geo sticks. They use authentic Seimitsu Japanese parts found in original Neo Geo arcade cabs and an identical Japanese button layout.

Want wood? Analogue Interactive's webstore has both up for order now. The system is priced at $649, and the stick is an additional $199. Pricey but probably worth it. I'd love to fondle one of these setups.

My desk craves this game-inspired Predator 2 figure

I'm still kicking myself for missing NECA's glow-in-the-dark Jason Voorhees figure based on his loud design in Friday the 13th for the NES. It was exclusive to San Diego Comic-Con, and I should've had a friend nab one for me....more
