With the base it still looks like a way out of proportion abomination that doesn't look as much as an actual astro as it should.

While its kewl that they're actually using the Arcade versions instead of the console games, I think they missed a trick here. They should have made 2 packages;

Regular - HSS-0136 recreation that also could be used as a usb stick, or daisy chained with other regular/deluxe for multi.

Deluxe - HSS-0130 recreation, same as above, just with the 2P12B layout.

I definately would be interested then, but this is a little too expensive for what will most likely just fill shelf space. (And that screen! 🤮)

Yeah. I haven't even ordered a controller as I can't see myself bothering to hook this up to a TV. It'll just sit around looking cool. :batlove:

The stick is a VSHG sans 3 buttons. The only bad thing about it is the price, compared to how cheap the VSHG was 13 years ago.

That is quite nice, but I wish they had styled the design of the plastic like it was part of the plastic astro panel assembly.

It'll probably only work with the AC Mini, maybe PC if you're lucky, but an Astro City branded VSHG is certainly worth the effort modding the PCB for your console of choice IMO.
