Cool! I would definitely be interested in trading for a Digiplay timed Astromash Rom version. I believe I lost that one to some Canucks fan in Western Canada. cmart have a spare by now?

Lol:-) I thought I lost it to you but it was several years ago so maybe my memory is wrong?

Here's another item that is sort-of Intellivision related.  These are pre-production proofs of General Instrument paper stocks.  While these are from the wrong time period (somewhere in 1990 to 1993), I still though this was interesting since General Instrument made most of the chips in the Intellivision over a decade earlier.  The images are large so people can get a closer look at the items.  Notice that the "thinking man" images are slightly different.  Notice also that one of the signatures is from Donald Rumsfeld.

Being this thread slowed down quite a bit I thought I would throw one in.  I have only seen one of these so if anyone else has one I would love to hear from you. It is a DEMO ONLY console in the box.  Note that the box is not glued but only had tape holding it closed.  It does not have styrofoam inserts but a cardboard bet it sets in.  The owner manaul does not have any production info on the front cover and the back cover is blank (usually has warranty info).  The bag it was in was taped closed in 2000 when I got it and I have not opened it up.  Also note the difference on the back of the box.  In the first pic the top box is not the DEMO ONLY unit. The second pic the top box is the DEMO ONLY unit.

 

Thanks and hope you all enjoy the pics. If I knew how to make them a little smaller I would.

Very cool! I don't think I've seen that before. I love seeing new variations come to light. Does it have a serial number at all?

can you post a pic of the front of the box. I notice on the back, the bottom right screen of astrosmash is different, wondering if the front is too?

There is no SN on the box but the unit is 777936.

 

There are quite a few differences on the front of the box. Note the black out on the console and some of the game screen shots are different.  LVP&BJ is on there twice. The box on the bottom does not have a cart included.  If it were not for the no glue on the flaps, the black out on the console and the lack of detail on the back of the box I might think somewhere in the past I could have switched boxes.  I hope not as I try hard to keep things original. I may not have an option of opening it up as when I got it out to take pics the tape literally fell off. I doubt I can find some to replace it to keep it as I got it, sooo.......  this unit may get a testing this weekend.

 

Again the top box is the DEMO ONLY unit.

These are the typical North American and European Versions, some games screens are different.

 

The NA version has a Math Fun, 2 Word Funs and 2 LVP&BJ  that the European switched out

for Snafu, Star Strike, Space Armada and Astrosmash.

 

Your demo seems to be a hybrid of the two, front is like the North American,

the layout on the back is similar to the NA,

but it replaces Math Fun with Space Armada and Word Fun with an Astrosmash

that has a white screen instead of the black one that's on the European version.  

 

Very cool.

Hmm.... I know I've seen the "tray" thing before -- maybe Hankster and I were duelling for it? :P I have a box like this, with the Mattel Electronics branding removed, and IIRC on the front there's a sticker covering up the 'includes poker cartridge' text. My hunch on these is that they, like some small number of Intellivision II units, may have been sold during the Intellivision, Inc. era -- or perhaps early in the INTV Corp. times. I.e. overstock Mattel units. Eventually, as those ran out, we got the INTV System III and Super Pro systems, I suspect.

 

Nevertheless, very cool item indeed!

I dislike seeing formerly active members leave the brotherhood. Anyone know what happened to Crade?
 

 

I was never a member of the brotherhood, but I'm still around just not nearly as active.  Busy with life and crap.  My new job also blocks this site so I can't slack off by checking it at work all the time
