-Poll of Intrest- Reproduction Club Sega Entry Mats, etc

Postby GeekMan1222 » November 30th, 2017, 4:54 am

So I been thinking of this for months, I dont have any proofs and im just polling for intrest right now. Raise of hands if anyone wants a cooooooool looking Club Sega entry mat for their home arcade room or even a Taito Station mat.
I think it would be really spiffy especially for that die hard sega fan boy. The size will be reduced to be slightly larger than a standard single door entry and of good quality. Im not sure the pricing yet its so early. Im also thinking of adding a very very tiny masters mark some where to denote it being a reproduction so people dont think its authentic down the line but thats up for debate.

If I get enough intrest Ill go out find the best priced / quality mat manufacturer and have a mock up made for me to test at home, see what the quality is like.
If we get enough intrest as well maybe we can work out a group buy, that way the prices will drop significantly because of bulk discounts, so please let me know what you think.

Are there any game centers you guys like that I didnt mention that you would like?

Let me know in the thread. I would love your feed back!! :D

Again this is a Poll of intrest and as such please select an answer on the poll.
Thanks

What type of mat, can you post an example?

Any option for a larger mat, say big enough to sit in front of a cab with room for two stools?

Rossyra:L I can provide an example of what I am speaking of in terms of size, I should be large enough to sit in front of a candy and accommodate stools

Cools: no only whats available on the internet, I was thinking I could get a graphics design buddy to pull the logos from something else or make from scratch.

Care to link them? :awe:

I've never seen any apart from the NeoGeo World one so I'm curious to how they look.

Yeah, me too. The one NGF wanted $20k for or something ridiculous.

In this case I don't think you'd have to worry about people thinking they're original.

This would be an example of what I am talking about only maybe a bit smaller, as that mat seems to be sized for a double entry door way

Those look pretty cool. International shipping likely to be a killer though due to weight and size?

Thats the big question, maybe 40$ at most rolled into a tube?

Color me excited, im happy people are interested in this, I originally just wanted to do it for my self but then i thought maybe i can do a small run or 2 at fair prices for everyone to enjoy and it will drive the cost down too for others

If they're rubber backed @ 2mm thickness it's 2.5kg a square meter. Average door width is 0.75m, to scale with original is somewhere about 1.5 x 1m so somewhere about 4kg plus the weight of the fabric.


Also to consider is the blend of the fabric used iirc they would have had a high synthetic fibre count due to expected wear in a public area. It's not necessary for huo mats, but natural fibres tend to be heavier and may be denser than you think and will add quickly to the weight.

1:1 scale i would imagine them being nearer 10kg than 5 all in.

Ah, now I prefer that Sega-on-black logo to the red club sega one anyday ;)
Taito has a certain quality to it though...

Mine might be slightly larger than his though but thats why im holding this poll. I could maybe offer a variety of sizes to choose upon 8-) keep the ideas coming

Edit like I said I will get specific sizes soon.

And yes the Idea was for plush fiber rubber backed.

I'd definitely be up for a Sega mat, although not sure which design I prefer atm. I like the Club Sega vibe, but I also like the SEGA logo styles linked to above :think:

For where I'd put it the 80cm x 60cm size is better for me.
