According to tracking both of my units just left Los Angeles on their way to Texas.  I will post a picture unless someone beats me to it first.

Just how big is the screen diagonal on Rainbow Brite?

I did not have a ruler but I guesstimated it to be 2 3/4 inches, just under 3 inches diagonally.

The robotech on eBay just went for $153.00, which is kind of funny, since you can get them for $75 from the Harmony Gold website, unless you hate HG.

As far as the RB version, I would assume, if they are going to be sold, it will be by Coleecho on eBay or by Hallmark on their website, as they already sell the other third party ones there:

I'm watching all of the reviews, some good, some not so good.

This person was very kind.

I can say that at least one time Chris mentioned to me about possibly doing a downloadable version of the game, and possibly carts made if Hallmark / Nintendo will allow it.  It wasn't brought up after that, so I don't know if that is still in the plans.

 

RB *was* written for the NES platform.  I don't know about Robotech; I didn't do that one.

Who owns the software copyright. Can't you make a variation without rb properties and do whatever you want with it.

Just got mine in.  They actually did a good job on it:

@mr_me:  I don't think so, it was a work for hire.  I've been meaning to ask him about porting it to the 7800 though...

As long as "work made for hire" is specified in the contract.

Robotech is a GBA game. Nintendo doesn't get a say in what cartridges are made for the NES. Hallmark will though as RB is there IP. As we spoke about in private before, I see many more NES carts selling than minicades if the opportunity was there for people to purchase such a thing.

It on NES cart or ported to 7800 would be cool

Guys...

 

I was just told that they are working on NES carts of the RB game.  Just some FYI.
