There is one console besides my Vectrex that is pretty precious to me in my collection that could use a dust cover...but it hasn't been made yet.
The Turbo Duo!
Need to make that happen I think? LOL

And, what a surprise, we have just the solution.

PM sent for 4 covers. Any chance of a XEGS cover coming soon?
Posted Mon Dec 12, 2016 1:01 AM
Sorry, but still no go for the XEGS. Been trying to find a donor case, but not in the cards at this time I guess!!
All Pms have ben responded to, don't forget the free ship option until the 15th.
And don't forget that special collector friend who would appreciate a nice custom made dustcover for there console(s).

As you know I have loved your dust covers for a while. Especially the Vectrex dust cover.
Added information on Vectrex.com for your fine products
Without a doubt, this is the nicest thing we have read in years.
Thanks Chris, it really means a lot to Barb and I.

Have been somewhat behind schedule keeping things current.
There are as previously mentioned a few new covers, so if you haven't had time to check, take a gander!
Also remember you are doing a great service by keeping us old people off the streets.
To all our previous, current and futures, Barb and I thank you very much!Thanks
Thanks! I love the colorful Fairchild Channel F cover (even though it does not match my original model "Fairchild Video Entertainment System" before they changed the company's name).
Which leads to the lots of different names for what started out as Bally Professional Arcade and ending at Astrocade with 7 other name variations in between. The red Bally logo would look great, but the lid has gold Bally on white and white Arcade on red.
My $25 Fairchild Video Entertainment System is okay with a Mismatched cover, but the rare Bally / Astrocade where I've spent $400 plus, I would want everything matching.
The blocky yellow Astrocade would also look great.
Only way way a Bally / Astrocade will happen is if you send them one to measure and fit.
Maybe a perfect mock up system would work? Someone send them a 3D printed system or a parts console!
You're welcome JD and Barb from a happy customer.

How many would be interested in a Turbografx 16 cover? I would be willing to send mine in and loan as a template. I think the Turbografx 16 has a strong collector base. I have bought almost all of the covers so far. Soon as I finish my game room which should be an a few weeks I will post pictures to show my appreciation for all the work they have done for the community.
Needs a cover.....

Any chance for a multi-color ColecoVision cover that resembles the original rainbow logo?

These are awesome. Wish there was a turbografx 16 one.

To answer some of the questions regarding availability for certain covers, 2 things prevent it from happening.
Demand and a useable carcass/shell to use as a template.
Unfortunately, we cannot offer a cover for each and every game console made.
Some of these consoles are rare and less popular, which makes it near impossible to get a donor, and if it wasn't a hot seller to begin with......
Anyway, hope that answers the questions and ask that you view the ad if you haven't looked for awhile.
And as always, Barb and I thank you for your continued business

Couple of updates.
We expect to have available soon, covers for the Commodore C16, which was apparently a European version of the C series in the USA.
The other is Texas Instruments TI 99. we have the templates done, just need some extra time to get some made.
**If anyone has a Coleco Steering wheel module that they would like to get rid of, send me a PM. All we need is the shell, with the wheel
attached. Do not need wiring, circuit boards etc..it can even cracks in it!
And Barb and I thank you to all who made purchases and keep us old timers out of trouble.

I love the Sega Saturn one, I am going to have to buy a few of these to save my systems . Thank you for your great talent!

Thank you Crossbow and imstarryeyed.
I cant take much credit for the covers, other then I cut the patterns and measure them.
My bride Barb does all the hard stuff, like embroidering and sewing.
Well, I do market the covers, so I guess that counts for something, besides the dirty looks I get when I tell her
she needs to get more covers done

Updating original post.
Now available covers for the Atari 800 and the Module 2 Steering Wheel for the Colecovision.
See pictures in the original post.
Thank you again from Barb and I for current and future business.

Just for future reference, anyone know if the Atari CX-80 and CX-22 trak ball controllers are the same size and shape (within a cm)? I have a CX-80 and if oldjd got a donation of one or the other, and they are willing, could they use one controller to make covers for both?
Maybe the same holds true for an XEGS and some other console. I can look into my set of consoles once my XEGS arrives (although I only have 4 of the consoles on the list: 2600, 7800, CV and sears arcade 2, as well as the CV roller controller).
Just a thought, but I would understand if that is troubling, oldjd.
P.S. Love your covers and I know you have made a lot of enthusiasts very happy! Your contribution is priceless.
