The supplier that Intellivision Productions used to get them from sold out when - according to Keith - one company / person bought what they had left, which was something around 400 Flashbacks. No idea what they paid for them, but I imagine it wasn't much if they were buying that many at once. Maybe these are the ones now appearing on eBay?

If that's the case ,I really hope no one purchase's any so they drop the prices.

Not sure if it works that way. More likely, interested parties see sources drying up and prices increasing, so they pounce in fear of missing out. If they don't, someone else will. Supply and demand.

Are they ? Even the 2nd one listed?

 

The second one is a legit NES Mini - but after-market hacked to have more games.  It's really easy to add more games to one - you can even turn an NES Mini into an SNES Mini or vice versa. (Although if you do the NES-to-SNES route, you'd better pick up the SNES controllers, too.)  I have a SNES Mini that I've loaded a bunch of extra games on to, and have it "dual-boot" between NES mode and SNES mode. As mentioned, the real NES mini has 30 games, the real SNES mini 21.

Supplemental Overlay Set sold at auction for $82. I wonder if the price for these is finally dropping from former highs. Still a crazy ROE.

I bought 3 sets when they first came out, was thinking of reselling a couple at those prices but they were all missing Soccer so technically incomplete. Doh!

about $40 to $50 in the arabic emirates?

https://www.virginme...-games/p/222207

 

those poor sheiks - sorry emirs

 

(could it be? ....nah, never)

 

very unkind

Virgin does not deliver to any residence outside of the United Arab Emirates.

 

not only that we can't buy them - how many they will have in stock and they will never leave the emirates?

they are really greedy!

(can they at all read latin letters? whatfor they need them? shall play domino or someting)

 

we need a commando, immediately call the president.

This one just sold for for US$25. You don't see auctions like this too often.

I noticed that too ... except calculated shipping to me was over $30, negating any savings. I don't think that's the actual price, just someone playing games with prices. 

 

I wish this machine would go back into production just so we'd have a good source for replacement controllers. Still $60 or so it's terrible, just not cheap. 

 

If I can find one for $20 for real, I'll ship it to Byte Knight for the "Ultimate" treatment.

$63 shipping to Canada. Making the total cost Just about $200 USD. You Americans do realize that not everyone needs "Priority Express" shipping, right? Just send it via donkey for 10 bucks, I can wait. :P

 

Seriously, why does everyone always pick the most expensive shipping option?

 

If I hadn't made it to CGE 2014, I'd totally be buying this, stupid pricing and all. I can't believe there are any left, knowing this crowd of speculators and hoarders.

3.Limited Edition Numbered Sleeve - Autographed by 9 Blue Sky Rangers (list below) and handnumbered by Blue Sky Ranger Stephen Roney. Numbers are from 2 to 79 (we will be auctioning #1 soon). Order early if you want a low number! Sleeve designed by Joshua Ballze.

With today's announcement from Intellivision Entertainment on their new console, it would seem extremely unlikely there will be a FB2. Maybe Bill L can chime in on that, but even if AtGames wanted to make one now it is hard to see that they would get the license renewed.

 

I'd still pay AtGames $20 just for a pair new Intellivision II-compatible controllers.

Agreed. I was totally guessing prior to the announcement. I should have guessed bigger :D

Almost makes we wish I grabbed one! But that's OK ... I have a bunch of that stuff already, and don't need the "limited" swag, so I'm glad they went to folks who wanted it more.

I was able to grab one.  I got the e-mail announcement at 5:00 AM EST, when I woke up, so I guess I was rather early.  I also had a credit in my PayPal account, which I had forgotten, so it came to about $50 in total.  Not bad. :)

Intellivision Productions is selling barebones Intellivision Flashback units for $9.99 - power supply only - no controllers and no overlays.

 

https://intellivisio...box-no-overlays

 

Kinda hard to play with it without controllers.

 

Unfortunately they don't seem to have replacement/spare controllers listed for sale on their site anymore :sad:

 

If you want to rebuild it into an Ultimate Intellivision Flashback, then this is a good deal and you can use other controllers/joysticks/pads etc until spare FB controllers can be had

The spare controllers are all gone, and unfortunately AT Games has no intention of making more.
