Wouldn’t it be great if all gamers could easily build a collection of old retro consoles and computers? Unfortunately for most, the old systems are becoming harder to find and increasing in price – not to mention finding the space to display them all! Retro Electro Models aim to solve this with miniature and accurate representations of some old classics. The Retro Electro SEGA Mega Drive 1:2.3 scale model is the first of these officially licensed miniatures and measuring 12cm will look great on display. The model comes with a Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge, a controller and stand, a replica of the original retail box, an info-card made to look like the original manual and a display stand to place the console on. Where possible the switches and cartridge mechanisms also work and in the case of this SEGA Mega Drive, the power, volume and cartridge slot all move.

NOTE: As our models are non-functioning it allows us to concentrate on detail and accuracy. When the classic games from the era can be played on many other modern platforms why ruin a great replica with USB and HDMI ports!

    Outstanding! The attention to detail is superb and looks great next to my full size Mega Drive.

    Absolutely fantastic collector’s piece. The attention to detail is fantastic, from the console itself to the screenshots on the back of the box and even the miniature replica of the manual, everything feels authentic and has clearly been crafted with care. The little Sonic the Hedgehog cart is adorable and the fact that you can actually plug the cartridge into the system just adds to the appeal.

    I can’t recommend it enough. I can’t wait to see what future models are planned, if they are granted the same level of love and care as this one they are sure to be fantastic.

    I love it!! A miniature replica model of a Sega Mega Drive that comes with a mini box, cartridge, joypad and display stands. It’s all just too cute! You really have to see one in person and even then you’ll be surprised by the size and the detail that’s been captured.
    My order arrived quickly and was well packaged, really impressed with both the product and service provided by Retro Electro.
    The Mega Drive was my console as a kid and this little model brings back all those memories of all the great games I played and still play to this day. It’s a fabulous display piece that perfectly captures the essence of the Mega Drive. I can’t wait to see what’s coming next.

    Excellent! I’m over the moon with this. I’m a big retro gaming fan, having played through the 8bit era and beyond. I’ve presently got a loft full of boxed consoles, much to my wife’s frustration. This model enables me to have a reasonably sized model for display purposes. The whole set is very well made and accurate. I particularly like the mini replica box, which unlike some of my full-size boxes in mint! :). Looking forward to what comes next, quietly hopeful for the Master System and Saturn…..

    Well what can I say about this model? Well WOW! would be a good start!,
    the model is superbly and highly detailed, everything is perfectly to scale,
    only the replica box isnt to scale but still looks great!

    The time and attention REM have taken to make this look as good as it does is simply amazing,
    nothing is missing, the volume slider moves up and down, the power switch moves,
    the reset switch is a sticker (I think)but it looks great.

    The cutest part of the model is the little sonic the hedgehog cart that actually fits
    perfectly into the model, and the controller is perfectly scaled too!

    This is well worth every penny, and I already have mines in a protective display box 🙂

    Can’t wait to see what the next model is 🙂

    I am very pleased by this charming model. The attention to detail, down to a tiny little users manual and retail box, is very impressive. Clearly a lot of care has been put into the design and production. It truly looks and feels like someone took a Mega Drive and shrunk it down into a manageable size. Neat little display stands are provided for you to set it out on your shelf or desk. I would say it’s a must for fans.

    I am really very impressed with this wonderful model – the attention to detail is excellent and I think it looks superb in my ‘man cave’! I’ll be keeping my eyes open for the next in the series – hoping for another Sega such as the Saturn or Dreamcast 🙂

    An absolutely outstanding little model. I was clued into it by a follower of my YouTube channel and after a small argument with myself as to whether I needed a 4th Mega Drive in the house, especially one that was just a model, I ordered it.
    I’m so glad that I did. The attention to detail in this model is amazing. I was gobsmacked at the quality of it as I got it all out of the box and looked it over. The novelty value of being able to slot the model cartridge into the console is something that I’d love to see expanded upon, like with more model carts and boxes so as to be interchangeable.
    If I have to give a criticism, it would be that they don’t seem to be individually numbered despite being a limited run.
    Otherwise, one of these is worth every penny. I am absolutely going to buy every model these guys put out.
