A complete in box Atari 7800 console. I opened up the flaps and it's still in the original factory bags.

The only European box type I ever saw only has a picture of the system and a little text in 5/6 languages on the sides.

Keeping of course! Now I have a backup 7800 if anything happens to the original plus a nice box to display on the shelf.

That is the Atari Mexico box, only the second one I've seen. What is the serial number on that guy?

Nice...did you forget you had it or is that something that the Atari gods offer to those who do a good job cleaning?

Nice!

 

Yeah, you say Found...So I'm guessing you forgot you bought it? 

 

(I once found I had Dragon's Lair for Game Boy Color this way)...

Im mostly curious regarding the screenshots on the outside of the box. Any pics from Sky Fox or Gato or Sarge or any other unreleased games? Can you look it over and see?

Yeah I can't say my box looks any different from Mitch's. We probably got them from the same place/seller.

I find Atari Mexico interesting. There are soooo many XEGSs floating around down there it's absurd. Not sure if Atari dumped all of its excess stock in Mexico or what but I had heard a rumor there were a lot of those systems in Mexico, and Facebook Marketplace proved it. That's semi-related to this thread haha
