Afaik it's simply a case of nobody has got hold of one to dump it; unlike the others you mention it never seems to appear for sale. Until then we don't even know what the hardware is, could just be some PC based thing for all we know.

Yeah, a number of people have highlighted the LD stuff as a priority and it *really* needs to be because it will end up being too late otherwise.

Very limited pool of people who can work on them tho.

MAME would probably support them if they were dumped, they're hacks of somebody else's IP at the end of the day so the person selling them is on poor legal ground anyway. Creative maybe,but they're still basically just unlicensed hacks / bootlegs even when used on the original PCB. Given it's Nintendo I'm surprised they haven't already thrown the book at him for using their trademarks etc.

There are hundreds of pacman hacks out there, it's possible sometimes these magazines ended up seeing the only copy of one that ever actually existed.

Bar some catastrophe I'm sure we'll see more next year. As for the Mattel ones, I don't know.
