    Default Neat Vidgame Neon Signs

    Anyone seen these? They look awesome, but from HK? The descriptions don't win any awards either... I'm more worried that these will combust and burn our place down. Anyone have one? They're cheap, but shipping is murder.

    I want like, 4 of these, but not if they don't pass the sketch test. Also would like to see if they can do custom jobs. ^^

    They are alright, but I would only buy a real Nintendo Neon (like the one you are currently bidding on ). These Hong Kong ones look pretty cool, but they aren't official, so I wouldn't put them in my collection.

    Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    But anyway, yeah, they're non-official merch for sure, but they look neat as hell. I just want to know about their quality and safety.

    Check the feedback of these people. Those aren't really neon. It's like a light shining through some sort of plastic. I looked at these over Christmas and passed.

    Yeah, a light shining downward into the acrylic. It's a fake neon, but it looks cool as hell. I'm just worried about it being shittily made and being a fire hazard. :\

    the signs are nice but make sure you buy from neon-beauty (i believe thats the ebay username). I went through the 5+ sellers of these and he/she seems to be the best seller as it appears she actually takes care of her customers rather than ignore them if something goes wrong.

    Other than that, yes these aren't neons but for the price you really can't beat em =)

    HAHAHAHHAHAH

    I would imagine that they are of decent quality. I personally don't think they look all that good though, but I doubt they will ignite a fire in your place. I say you wait for another real Flourescant (fake neon) NES era sign to pop on Ebay. They look really cool, and sometimes don't go for too much.
