    I live in hawaii and was wondering if i purchased a mini could you ship it in a flat rate box? It will fit if you take off the joystick top.Id accept full responsibility for anything that went wrong.

    Can anyone tell me if MAS is still in business? Everything seems to have just gone silent from them since a year ago. Nothing on ebay, nothing on Arcade Shock, nothing anywhere. I'm looking to buy a decent case that fits Industrias Lorenzo parts, and can't find a damn thing aside from that crappy X-Arcade stick.

    Got one from MAS back in March through their official eBay account: massystems and had several PM's with Thao during the process so I think they're still around, try using the contact seller messaging feature in eBay if you haven't yet to reach MAS :smile:

    Any idea where you can fine the 360 optical joystick that goes with the MAS? I have a friend that has one of these wood sticks and his directs are going out.

    Maybe eBay. Maybe the trading outlet here. Neither option is likely to be especially cheap.

    I couldnt find any on the happ site. I'm actually bidding on one on ebay.

    Happ no longer sells the 360 optical joystick, at least not directly to customers
    So you have to go with sites like eBay

    I suppose if anyone gets salty you can just quote to them, "By any means necessary."

    I did say it needed some "TLC".

    In its current state, I think all the directional inputs and buttons are mapped to FIERCE punch.

    So maybe one of yall knows but what do the 1990/2000 stamps on either side of the stick signify? I've seen some with none, only on one side, or both.

    read previous comments. they've been gone for a while now

    I know where they live. I may take a drive down there. I feel bad tho because I only want to buy blank cases and not a full stick. I'm not sure how they will feel about that.

    If you're going, say you'll get two of whatever you're picking up, and I'll buy it off you.

    For whatever it's worth the 'massystems' eBay account has shown recent, moderate activity. Seems they're mostly selling off computer parts and phone peripherals though.

    Yup. A lady would answer with kids screaming and crying the background while she took your order.

    An American business you could be proud of.

    I think you can actually roll up on them and buy whatever they have in stock. I would have totally done it if I lived down there. I think some people in the marvel vs capcom 2 facebook group (LOL!) did this within the last year.

    I'll see what's up. I would like to buy some blank cases.

    Get out there Zabuza22, you're the hero we need! You could single handedly bring about a resurgence of interest in American sticks!

    That is at best a pipe dream.

    if you want a real resurgence of American sticks you need to find someone active and willing to make the stick cases you need instead of casing the old MAS system stick makers who are probably retired in the scene.

    I apologize first of all for not being attentive to this thread. I live like 25 minutes away from the lady. I still remember how to get there. I didn't go because i think they are retired and also because I'm only interested in buying empty cases. Also she's getting old. I guess I can take a drive this Saturday. I have an open schedule. If I go I will try and work out a deal for like 4 or 5 cases. I want to keep two of them for me tho.

    Another option is to find the case maker who works with wood and we can just give them the layout of the old Mas

    Don't fret too much about it man, I understand rolling up on somebodies place unannounced would be uncomfortable. If you do go I'll totally take a mini MAS case if they have one. If not it's all good too I'll keep bumping my thread in the trade section and look on ebay.

    I actually found a wood worker on Craigslist. He does it all. I'm gonna contact him and ask him to build me some cases. I actually have an empty shell he can copy. I'll keep you guys posted

    Not quite MAS, but here's a empty case that has a somewhat similar style.

    http://shop.harumancustoms.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=61&product_id=65

    For $55 I expected t-molding to be installed, specially when the case is made from cheap particle board.

    Oops sorry, it was actually @Darksakul complaining :anguished: about said seller.

    Kudos actually go to @MonkeyGovernor for finding this.
