That Tempest is pretty sweet. I could do without the COLECO™ logo, though. :lolblue:

That Coleco logo represents a GOOD Coleco not the current Coleco.  ;)

So here was another cart I picked up recently...

The German version of "Super Cross Force."  Inside the box was a US version of the cart.  Not sure if there ever was a German version or not (NIAD's rarity guide doesn't say for this game like it does for Flipper Slipper) and it didn't come with a manual.  Still, sort of a neat version of the game to have!

Until recently, I owned the German version of Flipper Slipper and provided NIAD with the info about my copy.  It too came with a US cartridge like your Super Cross Force, but it did also come with a full colour German manual.  I photographed the box and scanned the manual before I sold it but haven't cleaned the manual scans up.  Here are a few images anyway.

So last night I was looking for some old photos of Walt Disney World and ended up coming across two pictures of me in my office at Virgin Games in the early 1990s.  You can clearly see what system I am showcasing in these photos and it just reminds me of how long I've been collecting for this system!

 

Sadly everything you see in these photos I sold when I flip-flopped from working on the west coast to the east coast (I took all my collection with me including about 30 arcade machines) and then back to the west coast again (by this point I was jaded and "checked out" with the games business and sold it all) and I didn't start collecting again until about a couple of years ago.  The very first post in this thread has the whole story....

 

Here I am proudly holding up the crown jewel of my collection and the system I would continue to be most interested in from childhood until today!

This would apparently be me... um... biting a ColecoVision controller.  I'm not sure why, but if kids these days can be licking Nintendo Switch cartridges, why can't I bite a ColecoVision controller?   :P

Part of me is sad to look at some of these photos and see the things I had in my collection that I sold. I also had 5 arcade games in this office as well that would have been behind the photographer: Space Invaders Deluxe, Star Castle, Donkey Kong, Tron, and Robotron and my office looked AWESOME with all the lights off and all the glow from the arcade machines.  Sad that I have no photos of that at all...

 

Ahh, those were the days...

Cool pics.  Did you take those pics with a 110 camera or something?   :)  Did you have an Adam computer too?

I don't remember what kind of camera it was.  I honestly don't even remember these photos being taken!  But I most certainly do remember that office since it was my last one at Virgin and I was in it for a couple of years.  I did have an ADAM as well, but it would have been at home.
