Ok, a 5200 is included, still need the VCS adapter, and the 7800 is included, well it plays 2600 out of the box.

 

The Light Sixer came w/o box, so I purchased the famous Chess Piece box, which is being made in UK.

 

Also a proud owner of the USA red box VCS JR

Are you going to acquire some Sears Video Arcade units, too? How about Atari Flashbacks?

Nice collection of consoles! By "being made" do you mean you are getting a repro heavy sixer box for your light sixer console?

Yes, some guy in UK makes those boxes.

 

And, apparently is was common practise in Europe to ship a light sixer in a heavy sixer box:

The box with the post-it note on top is a woody 4-switch in a Vader box, that even happened in Germany from time to time. I guess, the box was not the important feature, because it was mostly trashed anyway.

See above, it's a light sixer in a remade heavy sixer box

Why the germans didn't got the red box 2600? The "official 2600 color" in the Atari CORP years was red!
