Hi, I am making a few eprom based coleco carts, but lack empty shells. Any idea if somebody is selling them? I could buy old carts and throw away the pcb, but nowadays on ebay even the most common games are somewhat expensive for this purpose.

 

thanks

You can get the small version from PkK's site here:http://www.colecovis...ebrew kit.shtml

Or  you can contact coleco_master and see if he'll sell you some.  CollectorVision produce new Colecovision cartridges.

Good luck. It's very difficult finding new, regular sized/styled Coleco cart shells, unfortunately. This is probably due to some assholes counterfeiting homebrews a couple years back, so I doubt CollectorVision will come off any. You might get lucky and score some regular, black ones somewhere, but as far as any colored or translucent shells , forget it. I just dealt with this recently myself.. I simply wanted to rehouse my ultimate SD cart in a translucent shell and had a helluva time tracking a couple down. Pkk's shells wouldn't work for my particular project but they might work for whatever you're trying to do. Good luck! :)
