Anybody know where I can find clear plastic protector boxes for the large format 7800 Absolute game boxes? Referring specifically to Super Skateboardin', F-18 Hornet and Tomcat. Thanks for any insight!

I don't have any boxed Absolute Games for 7800 yet.  But I have some Sega 2600 Games. Those boxes are longer/taller. 

 

I have read that if you buy an Intellivision "long box or tall box" protector. 

 

What are the dimensions on an Absolute box?

 

There is also this thread which has info for box protector for some weird sized Atari boxes. I didn't see Absolute mentioned but I just skimmed it really quick.

Thanks for the reply and for directing me to that thread. Unfortunately, tall Intellivision boxes are only 8 inches high. The large-format Absolute 7800 boxes measure 9 x 7 x 1.

Yeah, I had come across his thread about large format box protectors but he specifically referenced that large format Absolute boxes would not fit in his large format box protectors, sadly!

Ah, sorry, I couldn't even remember the thread, I just got some larger protectors from him many years ago.  Bummer.

For those that need four, is there a game I'm forgetting? I could have sworn that only F-18 Hornet, Tomcat and Super Skateboardin' have boxes fitting these dimensions...🤔

Oh makes sense! I cheaped out and use the 2600 version box for my 7800 Pete Rose cartridge.

Is there a webpage or eBay/amazon seller that carries the clear plastic protectors for normal sized 2600/7800 games? Just picked up Hero, pressure cooker and Bermuda Triangle. Not the rarest but ...still

I bought a 10-pack from this seller on eBay last month and have been very happy with them. Just be sure to peel off the protectant film on each box before assembling!

No rush at all, just curious on any potential expected timeline on these. Thanks, again, for your willingness to make them for us!

I purchased the wrong copy of the game. I purchased the 2600 version. I need to purchase a 7800 copy. Has slowed things down
