I don't think I've responded to this thread yet....
1)Definitely going to PRGE, so staying alive until then is a priority
2)finally find CBS German Angry Kong to complete my CBS/Colecovision variations
3)somehow get lucky and find Digiplay Pinball, (ideally find two so Steve Jones gets one too). :)
4)continue to add to my Shockvision and Intelligames collections and get everything scanned for Steve for the Intyfunhouse site
5)fill in more holes in my German, Dutch, Italian, French, and Spanish euro manual variations as well as UK and Australian Lifestyle boxes
6)add to my Bandai CIB collection
7)look for any new paperwork/catalogs/ephemera, etc that I don't have
8)add any missing boxed hardware, including system box variations and controllers/add ons
9)find more Parker and Imagic prototypes/test carts
10)support all homebrewers by buying their games and/or by helping behind the scenes
11)get Groovy to release a Captain Bacon game
12)get Tarzilla or Oscar or any talented programmer to release a Star Wars game whereby you get to kill Ewoks, Jawas, Gungans and ultimately Jar Jar as the final boss
13)continue to do guest appearances on the Intellivisionaries podcast to provide a "Canadian" perspective :)
14)discourage Rev from collecting Hello Kitty and My Little Pony paraphernalia
15)oh, almost forgot this...find more KC CIB games
16)play more Inty with my son as I want him to truly appreciate what he'll one day inherit
17)finish my Aquarius collection, still need Chess CIB
....I'm sure more things will come to mind...

Thanks for keeping me
In mind on the elusive DP Pinball
What do you mean by Australian and Uk lifestyle boxes?
The system ones with soccer in the TV ?
There are two I am aware of, are there more?
Or something else?

the variation of the game boxes, I guess. The ones with the writing on the top or on the bottom flap (sometimes with a sticker) stating that the game was made in HK and distributed by Lifestyle, often mentioning Radofin as well
(someone correct me if I'm wrong)

I have a Word Fun box that has that text. It doesn't mention Lifestyle, just "Manufactured for Mattel by Radofin Electronics (Far East) Ltd." It's printed directly on the bottom flap, no sticker.

The Australian distributor was Lifestyle Electronics.

 

That makes sense then. cmart had confirmed the one I had was the UK version. I can see how they'd have different distributors in areas that far apart.

I have a Word Fun purchased in Melbourne, with a sticker mentioning both Radofin and Lifestyle. Tha manual is the UK version (-820)
