Yes it is but even $13 USD to ship a Donkey Kong manual or $70 USD to ship a colecovision console is still outrageous and I didnt pick totally bizarre examples, just average ones.

How about this for shipping gouging:

 

A year ago I picked up 3 posters (the normal in-a-cardboard-tube kind) at a retro convention in the US. before I left I sent one to a friend also in the US...cost $4bucks flat rate media mail, left coast to right coast.

 

Haul the others back to Canada to send to a Canadian friend...it cost 18 bucks to send it a 12 hour drive away since Canada Post did away with flat rate and is basically L x W x H X Weight.

 

It would have been half the cost to send from California to Vancouver, even with the USA to Canada shipping. With Canada Post the way it is, CollectorVision might be better off digging a tunnel to the US and mailing from there :)

You should probably contact JF or Toby from CollectorVision directly.

For the uninitiated (like me), how does one go about ordering games from Team Pixelboy?

Use the email link on his website to email him. He will send you a list of available games and pricing. I just did this myself a couple weeks ago.

Great video! Comic Bakery doesn't require the SGM, though. Or does it have SGM-enhanced features? I haven't played my copy with the SGM yet.

It has SGM enhanced sound, just like Mecha8/9 which is why I included them.

Just went to the CollectorVision site.  What happened to all of the Colecovision games?  There's only a few recent ones to order now.  The older titles are gone.

They are still available, but thanks to Chris Cardillo and all those other Coleco Toys people being complete assholes, CollectorVision pulled them from the site.  Just email CollectorVision and ask them what they have available.
