Unlicensed Sega Mega Drive clones
From Sega Retro
The Sega Mega Drive was a commonly cloned console during the 1990s, especially in smaller markets. There are potentially hundreds of different models, though few have been documented on the internet. This page covers some of the consoles that we know exist, but don't know much else about.
"16 Bit Game"
Dodgy looking Mega Drive clone from China, complete with crazy light gun.
16 Bit TV Game
Also from China, two clones by a company known as "Gap International Limited". One looks like a Mega Drive 2 in white, the other is completely new. Model numbers GA-16B1 and GA-16B2 respectively.
Car Game (CA-111)
Console manufactured by "First Game" in South Korea in July 2003. Sold for W110,000 it has 33 games integrated, and is meant for use within cars.
Also manufactured by "First Game" in South Korea in December 2002; this was sold for W88,000 and has 20 games integrated into the console.
An enhanced version of the above, released in July 2004 for the same price. This one has 33 games.
A Mega Drive clone from South Korea with a basketball theme. The top half seems to have been lifted from a Japanese Mega Drive model 1, but the console as a whole is more "square" in shape, similar to the Mega Drive Model 2. It shipped with two controllers similar to the standard three button pad but with an extra button.
Kid Box (FBH-999)
Another console manufactued by "First Game" in in South Korea. This debuted in March 2003 for W93,000 and has 33 games.
Originates from Taiwan and resembles a Model 2. Not much is known about it.
Mega 16 Plus
This appears to be a regular Japanese Sega Mega Drive I shell with a different label.
Developed by the South Korean company "Phillko", it was sold for W195,000 and is heavily based on a Mega Drive I.
Released in 2005 by the South Korean company "Techline", the Neo-16 sold for W85,000 and has 33 games built-in. Its design is taken from a Star Trek Famiclone also from South Korea.
Nippon Super Game II
A clone based off the Mega Drive II.
We have no clue about this one. This 2011 auction from seller dxghunterchen for 1,200 TWD has the title "SAGA 16 bit 電玩 主機 整套 含 ～ 1款卡匣 兩個把手 一個搖桿" and no product description — just the three photos below. It could be just a compilation showing an official Mega Drive with unofficial peripherals in an alternate Macro Drive box, but who knows for certain. The only identifiable peripheral is the HonyU Explorer-I one. The cart shown is Ma Jiang Qing Ren: Ji Ma Jiang Zhi.
Similar to the Mega 16 Plus, but this time with "SIGA in the bottom right.
Songa Super Drive
Aside from being manufactured in Argentina, and having a few different labels, little is known about what separates this clone from its Mega Drive II counterpart.
Also produced by the South Korean company "Techline", this debuted in 2006 for the price of W72,000 and has 7 built-in games. It's shell is that of a Genesis 3.
Another Taiwanese clone resembling a PS1. Little is known about it.

Or possibly just called "16 bits". A Genesis 3 without any Genesis 3 branding, also sold in South America.
