Not particularly rare, but for $10 if it works you certainly got a good deal. The Tandyvision is my favourite of all the INTV models, I've found them to be very durable and hey, wood-grained goodness!Posted Image

If it works that's a fair price.

Yeah, the TandyVision is my favorite too. For some reason, my favorite 2600 is also the Sears Tele-Games... I just think they look cooler.

I have one of these loose. It has "the black screen" issue and currently resides in my "for sale" box.

$10 is a great price for ANY Intellivision system (provided it works, isn't beat to hell, etc.)

But no, Tandy units are not particularly rare. I wouldn't say they're "common" exactly, but you should be able track one down with virtually no difficulty. (Not that you need to since you've already found one!)

I have a boxed unit, for which I paid around $25-30, including shipping.

Well at least you and I are covered in that category. :) That thing has been harder to find than CIB Bandai's or CIB Digiplay 1's and 2's. That seriously might be the hardest box out of the ten versions.
