Pity the Speccy one isn't on a black mug. Would also have been great if they were all similar in style so I could have bought a set. Might get the 2 white ones anyway though.

My fave is the arcade marquee one. I'd like the full set, but £40 for 4 mugs is a bit much in one go. Any chance of more being produced if these sell?

Mugs look a bit cheap and thin...need a proper big man mug for £10!

They look great, would love to get at least a couple of those.

But its a tenner a mug, plus shipping on top of that....a lot of money for a cheap white cup with a design printed on it. Much as I was tempted, Mrs Trucker™ would do her (not insubstantial) b*ll*cks if she found out I had spent £25 to £50 on a few cups.

Great idea, excellent designs....very poor price.

No C64 mug, surely as that was the more popular machine it's more deserving of a mug than the Spectrum is.

Its par for the course for custom or niche mugs. I've often shopped for them as it does brighten my day to have something like this for a cuppa, and mostly they hover around the £15 mark. That's what I paid for my current favourite Space Invaders 'Game Over' mug I use daily at work.

I like a thinner mug too, the big thick ones just seem cheap, a quality mug will be thinner china not thick clay.

Hi All

I'll post some more pictures up later on today so you can see all the images on the mugs all the way round and I'll see if I can get some shots so you an see the thickness. They are a good substantial mug fairly chunky - the Retro boys wouldn't have it any other way!! But we do offer a money back guarantee if you weren't completely satisfied - but I think you'll love them once you see them in teh flesh (so to speak)

Ordered one of the arcade mugs this morning, eager to add it to my collection of Retro mugs I have here, can't wait , only worked out at €18 all in, a small price to pay for quality IMO . I urge all to get one before there gone :D

How about a mug for each cover of the magazine and doing a limited run of them? :shock: :? :P
