Hi everyone!

 

This is my first post on here so be gentle.

 

My fathers been selling games for almost 40 years and offered me an old brochure

he found after going through some old work stuff.

 

Sorry for the quality, I'm planning to make some high res scans in the next week or so.

 

Not looking to sell, just to share:

 

Enjoy!

Thanks everyone, glad you like it. I'll have clearer pics soon.

 

My dad thinks that may be the only one left in existence as they only made a handful of them originally.

I'll post any other cool stuff we find. :)

Wow, were those the planned controllers?  Mattel was giving up on the disc?

Yep, they were battery operated wireless remotes (imagine the # of AA's you'd go through)

I think it's fair to say that might be the best first post ever. 😍 So how exactly did your Dad happen to have this? Was he repping Mattel product?

He was a sales manager (I think) at Mattel Electronics up to and during the crash.

Any other weird paper items? (Or any other gaming items?) Anything even remotely related to Mattel will be of great interest to people here.



Thanks for sharing.

He's gonna check but seems to think the Mattel stuff may be limited.

AFAIK there arent any eproms or anything like that. There may be some Aquarius promo stuff and internal docs but hes not sure. I'll keep you posted. Not too long after Mattel we headed up north to Boston for another game company.
