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 don't forget that special collector friend who would appreciate a nice custom made dustcover for there console(s).

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! 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.

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

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. :-o

C16 is the same shape as VIC-20 and C64 breadbin - so not much extra effort there if you just write Commodore on them.  ;-)

I don't have any dust covers for my consoles because it would cost too much to buy them for everything and I can't justify the expense for one or two. I see some small sets with savings for related items, but did you ever consider a large, more expansive, mega-collector set for some people?

Also, would you consider doing one for the original Atari 800? I see one for the 400.

If you had a bunch of these and offered a bulk bundle for the right price I'd get:
Maxnavox Odyssey 2000
Atari VCS
Atari 2600 (yes, both)
Atari 800
Atari 800XL
CX80 Trak-Ball
Atari 5200
CX53 Trak-Ball
Family Computer
NES
Sharp twinFAMICOM
Atari 7800
NEC Turbo-Grafx -though missing rear cover (like many)
Sega Genesis
Neo-Geo MV-1 (particularly-exposed arcade PCB)
Neo-Geo MV-1FZ (commonly consolized arcade PCB)
SNES
Philips CD-i
Sega Pico
Panasonic R.E.A.L. FZ-1 3DO
Sega Saturn
Sony PlayStation
Nintendo 64
Sega Dreamcast
Sony PlayStation one
Sony PlayStation 2 (original)
Microsoft XBOX
Nintendo GameCube (with GameBoy Player)
Sony PlayStation 2 (early slim)
Nintendo Wii
PlayStation 3 (launch unit; vertical possible?)
Nintendo Wii U
PlayStation 4 Pro
Nintendo Switch
Various joysticks (NES Advantage, Capcom Power Stick Fighter, ASCII Fighter Stick SN, ASCII Stick II Turbo, multiple Neo-Geo sticks, etc).

I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

Perhaps a set of 12 with the more mainstream stuff being an automatic inclusion (2600, 5200, NES, 7800, Genesis, SNES) but you had to pick the additional ones up to 12 (dupes allowed). Also, a particular bundle expansion price for each item over 12.

Not that the prices are bad (they aren't), I'm just brain-storming about what it would take to convince me to make that leap/investment for my collection. :)

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 :mad:
