    are these the protos? What are we looking at?
    Edit:
    Looks like Twitter and FB posts. This stuff is looking nice. I'm looking forward to getting these when they are complete.

    I bought the set two nights ago. I had originally been planning the last couple weeks to get Zero Wing only since itís the only one I donít have, but the whole collection just looks too cool to pass up.

    Saw the post MJR did on these, I'm really not liking the weird colored transparent shells. Kind of glad I passed.

    Own the previously 3 and felt the same way. Just got Zerowing and hope we get to see more releases. Happy to purchase new physical licensed games at a fair price.

    I was going to get Zero Wing since I have the other three on cart, but ended up ordering the set since none of the ones I have are boxed and I heard the Hellfire sound bug was fixed.

    Anybody else still waiting for this. I ordered mine from Castlemania games five months ago now, it was supposed to arrive in January or February.
    Sent an email five days ago and still no response. Just sent another email.

    I ordered from LRG. I'm used to waiting next to a year for these boutique game store releases. Waited forever from Castlemania as well with Holy Diver. It will eventually get to you, but you will be much older than you'd thought you'd be when it finally reaches your doorstep.

    It would be nice if they kept us up to date about when we should expect these games. I was hoping to have these by now. I'm also still waiting on the Darius release.

    I ordered my Darius from SLG and I believe it stated that one wasn't to be released until late spring/early summer timeframe? I did order some of the Toaplan releases from LRG and yeah, they usually like to take their time with game releases. The last two I purchased took the longest being my physical copies of PS4 SOR4 and re-release of Monkey Island for the SegaCD.

    I'm waiting on Zero Wing. CastleMania updated their website a couple days ago:

    "Retro-Bit Toaplan games

    *March 10th UPDATE We have received our stock from Retro-Bit and will begin shipping today March 10th"

    http://support.castlemaniagames.com/...?ref=yotpo_109

    Pat Conrti mentioned on the CU podcast he got the entire box in the mail a week or two ago so I don't think it's going to be much longer.

    Speaking of TOAPLAN, i really hope we will see a re-issue of SNOW BROS next. Since that cart is like $900+ now?
