Well...mostly and almost....

http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/cubegoodies/dfc1/?cpg=139H

I like the Centipede stuff. But the Asteroids can be found cheaper elsewhere (http://www.gamestencils.com/index.php?crn=217), I mean it is SO simple. I guess this is just official stuff....

O, yes and it has the original Asteroids copyright which is pretty cool. The rocks also seem a bit more like the original game.  But the "official" stuff is black which makes it hard to see on a dark colored wall. I would prefer white (like the original game !) and gamestencils even have a cool glow in the dark version....

To me it seems the Think Geek set is a lot larger than the gamestencils one. To get a similar look as TG, you need 4-5 kits of GS. And that does not even include scoring.
The only problem I see (userpics) is that it only looks nice on a Jan des Bouvries white wall. All creamy types will get horrible looks (which is OK in a way as creamy white sucks).

I love the centipede too, but not this colourscheme. I mean, there are way nicer combo's in the game.

Mmm, yeah I wasn't expecting the sets to have so many pieces. Still.....I hate the blackness of the Asteroids art.....complete mistake IMHO.

I agree about the Centi color scheme. The Blue/red combo is the best IMHO Cheesy
