This is nothing against your awesome boxes but your title drives me nuts "authentic replica" is an Oxymoron.

Thank you Yurkie! I thought it a nice choice for describing my graphic artwork... here is a definition that I found inspiring to the work that I do:

authentic |ôˈθentik| (abbr.: auth.)adjective1
based on facts; accurate or reliable : an authentic depiction of the situation.

Life is so much easier when you know what you are, isn't it, and the "Bar of Expectations" can be set very low! My wife reminds me of this simple fact EVERYDAY. :_(

Just got my Turbo and Donkey Kong Boxes in the mail.. They are AWESOME. Turbo has wanted a box since back in the day. It will be a happy Cart now. Now I have to decide which DK Cart gets to live in the box. Decisions decisions... :)

I have made a box for Slither for Collectorvision in the past. I don't know if he will ever use it.

Anyway you can also find one (front only) here : http://www.colecobox...ision_fakes.htm

Nice work on all your boxes Vince!

I am planning on making an authentically-styled reproduction box for Slither that would be stylized for the U.S. Market (non-CBS).
