Didn't have this version listed in my database.  Great!  Another one of these to find.  :mad:

Other than Steve, does anyone else own copies of the Intellivision, Inc Loco-motion cart and/or manual? I'm trying to gauge the rarity. Last I heard, still no box has been identified.

Looked through my pile this morning and I have the INTV manual, but the Mattel cart and overlays and no box.

The listing for this bundle of an Intellivision II, game changer, intellivoice & games (no boxes) is over $200 with no rare games... except maybe the Night Stalker cart with the peeling label, revealing Astrosmash underneath??

Not that bad of a price for someone just starting and wanting to play.  If you use $3 per game ($132), $15 Intellivoice, $15 System Changer, then that leave $55.50 for the Intellivision for a total of $217.50.  A little pricey when you look at it that way, but then again some of the games are worth more than $3...pricey for us but not for someone that just wants a system and games to play.  :)

Pics as promised   :-D

 

Intellivision Inc Loco-Motion (front)
Intellivision Inc Loco-Motion (inside)
Intellivision Inc Loco-Motion (back)
Intellivision Inc Loco-Motion (cart)

 

I paid under $6 after payment and shipping.  I casually asked the seller to "package carefully".  It arrived with the manual rubber banded 180 degrees around the cart in a bubble envelope.  I didn't expect much more since it was one of those high throughput sellers that lists thousands of games at a time.  It shipped fast and the manual isn't sharply creased, just kinda warped.  It should flatten out over time.

 

The manual is printed way off center.  A very small part of me almost thinks that it's a cheap homemade copy, but knowing all that we do about how these rarer Intellivision Inc games were packaged (later on?), the sloppy, last minute haste seems about right.  The manual is stapled at the top spine and uses the same thick rough textured paper used for many of the other I.I. games.  I'd say it's legit.

How did I miss this listing?? :?:  I would have been all over that in a second.  Good job on getting this!

It was a BIN, only up for a few minutes before I jumped on it.

Looks like it was already bent in the eBay ad.  I wonder if those were only issued in baggies.  Anyone have a complete one?

The recent Intellivision, Inc. versions that have come up on ebay have been cart + instructions only so it's probable it might have been issued in baggies only.  The intellivision, Inc. box might exist but I don't think anybody here has even seen one...

well, I had the high bid on a system but didn't win it due to the unmet RESERVE...I haven't seen someone do a reserve in YEARS. 

bah, oh well.

I see them from time to time, but 90% if the time the reserve is way higher than the item's actual value.

Here's a couple pics of my bagged Loco-Motion, you can just see the edge of the overlays inside the manual when you look real close-

Yes, but I'd say not $900 rare.

The seller is fishing for a big buyer. Perhaps he'll get one, perhaps not.

Pikachu...prices are anywhere from double to quadruple going rate. It's rare, but more like $200-300 rare, IMHO. Make an offer ;-)

Not $900 for sure, but definitely worth more than $200 as well. Somewhere in the $400 range give or take would not be out of the realm of possibility. But $900 definitely too much, but to each his own - the market ultimately will dictate.

Yeah, in a good month, I'd go $350 to $400, it's one of 3 games I don't have along with Robot Rubble and League of Light. If I was making 7 figures a year…then I'd ruin things for everyone. LOL

 

Don't worry, not much chance of that this lifetime.

Yeah, Tetris is a big void in a lot of collections but certainly not $900... 1/2 of that maybe if someone wants it really bad.
