The Innards of Darth Duke's Heavy Sixer

Here's all that's inside the console. Compared to todays consoles, it hardly looks like anything, but I consider it a masterpiece of console design. Considering that this old girl was made around 1977, the components are in remarkable shape for all the abuse they've gotten from us kids. Not a broken solder or component on it anywhere. After learning how to take it apart and clean it back when the Internet first got the ability to let you post pictures with text pages, I've been doing so at least once a year. Before that, it sat in its box in the attic for a few years after it started showing weird colors and wavy lines on the screen if you played it for an hour or so. Thank goodness we didn't throw it away! We'd played it almost daily from the day we got it for Christmas from my Grandma up until it started doing that. Now, I once again play it a lot, at least weekly.

Amazing considering how many other toys and gadgets from my youth have gone to the landfills long ago.
