At this rate, it should be reasonably priced by 2026.  :grin:

Can someone say if this is a scam or worth it.

This guy seems to "ACQUIRE" some never before used and mint Coleco Items which leave me to conclude that these are just some dude printing boxes and filling them with junk.

Who in their right mind would buy a mint condition so and so just to open it up and check.

^that dude is legit.. He's been trying to sell NIB vintage video game stuff on ebay for a few years now but he wants entirely too much for everything. I have an email from him, with a bunch of photos he sent me, of all kinds of NIB stuff that he found in a warehouse or something like that.. I forget the details.


I really wanted a NIB Expansion Module #2 from him a couple years ago but I just couldn't do it.. He wouldn't take a reasonable offer, so the hell with him. Lol. I'll settle for a nice CIB one, one of these days.

Yeah, I see no reason to think they are not legit. You certainly couldn't fake them for that price.

They do seem a bit high to me but again it's hard to find a cib with a mint box.
I haven't kept up on coleco numbers since I completed my coleco collection but I know when I was watching stuff more paying like $175 for a nice cib one was certainly normal. There are lots of boxed ones but they always are trashed. From the size of the package and the fact it was glued shut and very hard to get in and out of the box which is pretty thin cardboard for the size.

I guess when you have the only new ones you charge what you wish if your in no hurry to sell. They are beautiful regardless :)

The dude on ebay, (Jeff is his name BTW, super nice guy - I found his email). He literally had pallets of Coleco stuff, plus Intellivision, Atari 2600, TI99/4a and much, much more - NIB games, consoles, accessories, etc. A retro gaming goldmine! The sealed, NIB Coleco stuff was found in the basement of an old electronics store that was going out of business and the rest was the result of 15 years of collecting (at the time - email is from 2014). I saw Coleco shipping boxes full of SACs, EM#2, Roller Controllers, etc, which he's been slowly selling on ebay over the last few years. His Nib CV consoles were regularly selling for a grand or so but I don't know what his stock is like nowadays.. Apparently he still has some stuff though, obviously. It would be cool to have a Coleco shipping box in the collection, but it would be tough to store and keep preserved, unless you broke it down and folded it up. Stupus is right though, he could pretty much ask whatever he wants since he's pretty much got the Nib market on lockdown.

Anyways, he's trustworthy, so have at it. :)

Here's just a couple pics, out of the many he sent me, back in 2014. Check out those nib mini Coleco arcades! :lust:

What is really wrong about this picture is that I did not find it first.
