Hello all!

I found this the other day at a yard sale wanted to see and get some information if 18.00 was a good buy. Box and unit Serial number are 56116 is this mean anything?

That looks like a Sunnyvale light sixer to me. In remarkably good shape. I'd say you got a tremendous bargain at only $18.

Definitely a light sixer, not a heavy sixer. In any event, it's definitely a good buy at $18. I'd make that deal all day.

The box is what throws me off too looks like a heavy on the box, but different from what the Atari looks like. But I thank you all for the help I'm happy with it and it works like new. Just looking for some games now that I remember as a kid.

It is a great find and the boxes can be confusing.

It is suppose to look like a Heavy Sixer. They didn't put Light Sixers on the box. It's a Light Sixer box because a Heavy Sixer box has a Chess piece on it. Actually, it is the box that goes with that exact Light Sixer because the sticker on your box has 56116 and on the bottom of your VCS it has 56116P. Everything there is original and goes together. You should be very happy with it.

You just look at that Chess piece on the left box and there should be no confusion.

Thanks Schizophretard!

I always look for the 10 to 50 game variations. But that Chess piece stands out!

what's up with the rubbed out switch-labeling on the console? is that just glare?

edit: no, that's not glare. i can clearly read "video computer system" inbetween the switches.

You're welcome. Just remember that Chess equals heavy.

You're welcome. If the damage is permanent then you could still replace that part.
