Your best bet would be to ask in the neo-geo.com forums but beware... if you are not already familiar...it's tough community and they are not fond of people starting their first posts in the Wanted or For Sale area's.  This said from a man with experience.

Alternatively, you might want to try arranging a group buy here on the forums and getting them shipped directly from southtown-homebrew.com and then distributing them out? Just a thought.

Anyway good-luck with the search

I was going to suggest Southtown, if you decide to go down the group buy road I would be in.

Agree, never met such a horrible online community as the Neo Geo forums for people sharing a common interest in computer gaming.

Thanks for the replies, just looking for a couple at the moment. May consider a group buy in the future or jump in if someone else wants to arrange one.

Thanks from Luke

Couldn't agree more. It was the first forum I found when I got in to this hobby and while 1 or 2 were really nice the vast majority were just plain nasty. When I found there were UK arcade forums it was like Christmas LOL

Anybody checked out this guy yet? (I think it is the spanish guy from ebay who sells neo boxes)

https://www.neooldstore.com/neo-geo-boxes/

This guy's boxes actually look to be better quality than southtown's (I have some ST boxes, I might even sell too)... .. Yes £100 to uk for 4 boxes and insertsCry

I was a bit disappointed with southtowns boxes tbh.. of course they are worth the $8 and great for US folk, but not worth it for non US folk after paying delivery and customs.

This other guys look to be proper vinyl like the old aes vinyl friction lock boxes, which gives more flex and stuff,  also the inner plastic which hold the games cart looks thicker than ST's- again it looks just like the old aes box's inner plastic, which can stand a bit of wear before cracking...... On my SouthTown boxes, the inner plastic is ridiculously thin and cheap at the deep corners.  Also their labels can be misaligned ( they appear off-centre when looking at the spine, cant fix!! ) and the colours can be overdone- good quality, but whoever is sending these to the printer they must have their monitor settings up too high or something. My MS3 label looks like it was coloured in marker and left out in the rain.(sharp lines and quality, terrible colours)
