Thought this was worthy of posting. Someone selling a cache of NIB Colecovision games and ADAM Super Games... Interesting packaging. Prices high. Maybe he'll come down if he's forced to re-post. eBay Auction -- Item Number: item3375756f97
This seller has some really great condition CV & ADAM products... albiet a bit overpriced in my opinion, but he does provide a "Best Offer" option.
As far as the lineup of products, he has posted numerous "Coleco of Canada" releases of CV carts, especially educational titles that were supplied in cardboard boxes versus "Coleco/USA" versions released in white plastic clamshells with insert sheet artwork. I have also seen a number of French/Canadian (English and French languages used on boxes) variations for items like the AutoDialer and the Accessory Kit.
The items that really caught my eye were the Super Games releases of DK, DK Jr. and Zaxxon. I never realised that Coleco of Canada released surplus stock of these titles in boxes and packaging that were actually made for blank Digital Data Packs. They even changed the plastic DDP case insert to add the game name so that it would be visible when insert in this box. However, this makes perfect sense to me seeing as Coleco of Canada made a committment to keep supporting the ADAM Computer even after Coleco/USA made the Jan. '85 announcement that they were dropping the ADAM and I'm sure they had hundreds of loose Super Game DDPs available... but no Arcade Cabinet boxes.
The last item is the B.C. II: Grog's Revenge Super Game that is packaged in the same blank DDP box with an instruction manual. HardHat (Dale W.) actually shed some light on this one in another thread a week or so ago and then chuys450 had one pictured in his CV Collection that he posted pics of in the Gallery. I was never sure if there was any official packaging for this one prior to all this and within a couple weeks time, we have been provided all kinds of great examples.
