  1. Disclaimer: I ship from Germany. The price actually does include insured Shipping to the USA. If you are from the EU shipping might be a lot cheaper, just ask for a price. If you are from other countries, like China, it might be a bit more expensive, so I might have to add a few dollars. That said, the price does not include Custom fees or taxes, so keep that in mind, because I will declare the actual paid price on the parcel to avoid any problems in case it gets lost. Due to Covid and the oversea shipping I cant give you any arrival date of course, but you'll receive the tracking ID. Payment is through PayPal Family and Friends only. Here are pictures of the actual game for sell. It looks decent due to its age. It comes with the box, the inner tray, the manuel and the catalogue. I testet it today (17th of September) and it works perfect. The label of the cart is slightly peeling off due to bad glueing, its a common issue with Parker Releases. Price: 160$, feel free to make reasonable offers.
  2. I as inspired by that RGB Mod thread, but did not want to hijack it. I found some guy in a german board, who make me a sweet mod as well. Its RGB + Controller Ports. I am a complete scrub, so may laugh but what impresses me the most is, that the original controllers are still 100% functional, despite the ports to connect Grips Arcade-Stick. Love it ♥
  3. Hello @Kai_Magazine I contaced you via mail, you responded me quickly, thanks And I have to say some words to the upcoming concerns: I cant really say that I know Joe, but if I had to deal with him he was awesome and generous and as we all know he has done incredible things for the Intellivision Community. I get that Kai_Magazine has to move on, they explained it very well and as a business you sometimes have to make descisions some may not like. So I completely get their point and wish them all the best, hopefully the situation solves soon and may we see us again in the future. I really would like it, because the games had extraordinary quality in my opinion and were always top notch. But have not the slightest of fear in this situation as a customer. I am sure Joe will deliver, but sometimes real life is a bitch and especially in this pandemic situation it gets harder and harder for thousands of unforeseen reasons. I wish Joe all the best, but I have no doubt he will do his job. All the details in the background between Kai and Joe are nothing I concern, just not my business. I hope I made clear what I wanted to say, English is not my first language and so it sometimes twists the sense a bit in the wrong direction xD
  4. I am not in a hurry ^^ Pandemic makes things not faster. By the way: Is there still anything planned for a CiB TNT Cowboy release?
  5. I ordered today, didnt even heard of this one before... Yet another smashing game from the best developer on the intellivision!
  6. Is there any way to tell of thats a real box or a reproduction box? The story sounds not very trustworthy
  7. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Space-Hawk-for-Intellivision-Signed/303799987034?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=603015873592&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Well... I love signed stuff And I really wondered if I saw it very early, or if thats really a niche no one else likes, because imo its a complete steal for that price... but I thought it much more when I bought the signed Intellivision Lives, which had a lot of signings on it from many different people, including Keith.
  8. Thanks for the updates and don't worry, its completely fine of it takes a bit, if we stay informed about the status. Covid doesnt really help as well I guess Looking forward to this game
  9. In fact it seems that I hold three of the four records Maze 48, Battleship 44 and Space 83. And as far as I remember the game was a RNG festival. So my advice: If a run starts bad, just reset. Not worth the time. But I think (!) maze was a bit different. Unfortunately I dont have time at the moment, but I think I remember that you could "manipulare" the RNG by shooting very early. This spawned more bugs... or whatever you are killing in this game.
  10. Got my Box-Set today as well (Germany) ^^ Many thanks!
  11. Like Eastern and Christmas together, just better 🥰
  12. They are well deserved and I dont have the reputation to say them lightly But the games are really great and I hope to get them all in physical form one day, because they completely deserve it. And I really like the way of pre orders to cover the risk.
  13. Played a few minutes, just til second floor and man, its just incredible again. Such awesome graphics, such great and fluid gameplay. I have to admit that I usw the Arcade Stick made by Grips, I guess it improves the gameplay a lot, but the game is again just amazing. Well done Kai, you are really a gift for the community! Your games are probably the best ever made for this system.
  14. Sorry if the question sounds silly, but how can I pay? ^^
  15. Very late, but not surprising: I definitely support Pre Orders. TNT Cowboy is the best Intellivision game ever made in my Opinion and Kai a godlike programmer. Love to support him and get hands on physical copies of his games, which they so much deserve. So I am in for every single pre order of his games.
  16. Well thanks, still a heck of a deal in my opinion, special place next to my signed Joe Zbiciak Flash-Cart.
  17. https://www.ebay.de/itm/Intellivision-Lives-signiert-von-Blue-Sky-Rangers-NDS-Nintendo-DS-60-Klassische-Spiele-/164279035390?nma=true&si=z82v2l%2FriB47JGmyme01QmEx6bE%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557 I am completely unsure why no one got interessted in that. Was already online without any bid and even advertised here, feels like a steal tbh, but maybe I value completely different. Of course just if its not fake, but the seller has a good reputation and at least the signings I could find online look pretty legit.
  18. If you are talking about Hover Bovver: You are criticized for threatening to destroy the boxes. I recall that very well, we had to buy two boxes instead of one, but you refused to sell them seperately. So in fact many people were willing to help you to cover the costs, but you just rejected it. And of course you were criticized for insulting your customers again and again. I thought we put that shit behind, but if you bring it back to light please dont change the situations. @intellivotion I am so very sad about this, thought we were best buddies forever @BSRSteve And there again: The publisher who is rather threatening to throw stuf away. You have clearly many people who appreciate your work, sell it to them and make them happy. Just dont sell anything ever to me, instead of punishing a community, because you are not pleased with a single feedback. And it wouldnt be a problem at all, because I am not going to buy anything ever again from your store. There were plenty ways to do it right. Yeah, you have these limited ressources, just make them "first comes, first served" and a "non limited" edition for the follow ups. Even of you just offer cart only it would be something I'll skip, but at least a chance for people who are wanting the games. No special shells needed, just use available ones. Or take pre orders, make a fair calculation to get your profit and sell more with more profit. Just dont be like a bee and rip the people off. Yes, I am pissed off by these releases again and again. Our market is small, but its not as small as 24 and with releases like this you make it hard to impossible for collectors to stay in the game. In fact my goal was to collect all games once upon in time, but man did that goal get nosedived by special release here and there. And I highly doubt that I am the only one who nearly completely stopped collecting, because of the many, many wrong turns the business took over the last couple of years. So I also blame stuff like that (but of course not only by you) which made the already small marked even smaller over the years.
  19. Just saying Overlay Packs. Took forever and many sets were incomplete.
  20. It is very simple: BSRSteve said it himself: Bootleg, first official release. Yeah, there was a release, but he is not shy to remind us, that his is the only legit stuff. And then limits it to that pathetic numbers. I bought the first three releases, even if I had them all already, because I was interessted in buying the "real" stuff. This ended now, since the BSR prooved yes again, that they are not able to work with custumers. Its ridiculous to make such release numbers and the explanation is just awful. Artifical hype and stupid expensive reseller-prices are the result. Worst publisher for this console, and thats a pretty tough achievement. And with that I am out of this thread. So sick of this kind of business.
  21. So yet again an incredible rare item. Count me out, sick of this stuff. Make them available for all people who are interessted, that is fan service. This here is nothing else then artificial hype. Sad to see that the license holders are doing this again and again, nothing learned out of the Blix (or whatever that crap game was called) fiasco.
  22. Amico has not even 20k Followers, we will see how that converts into sales. And Amico is a different story. As a Intellivision Collector I dont care how Amico sells, because its not the Intellivision. To be honest, I dont even know that the heck it is, something like the new Atari VCS? I dont see the market for that, but we will see how it goes in a few month I guess. @mr_me If you are talking about originak Homebrews: Probably pretty bad. And I doubt a publisher will sell them for just 3 bucks, but even if: The Collectors often dont even care about the game, it goes into the shelf and thats it. And for a new console the limitations of a 40 year old system would be pretty terrible to attract customers.
  23. Well, in fact its pretty true. If 10 SNES collectors pass away nothing changes, of 10 Intellivision collectors do so, you will notice the shrinking market. And I said it years before and I stand to my statement: The rising popularity was a curse in disguise. Yeah, we got many games and yes, some were pretty good. Bust many were not and even more could be good, but were rushed out with HUGE flaws and ruined the trust in the market. We also had anough other stuff happens, that ruined trust. The scene seemed to be pretty nice some years ago, easy money for unpolished games. Unfortunately that thinned out the buying potential for awesome games as well, because in the time when everybody and his mother started to release games many people lose their interesst, because it was hard, if not impossible to get hands on all new games. Some even were not in public sale, there were PN groups to get hands on some titles. Some of the publishers did that with honest good intentions, some clearly had a quick moneygrab in mind, but in the end it doesnt even matter, because both harmed market in my opinion. And today we get one shitty overprized release from Italy after another. Its ridiculous, quality is from okay to rubbish, more often the last category. So yeah, I would say there are many factors why the market will die or is already pretty dead. It didnt had a good chance anyway to last forever (INTV will be a damn small niche in a niche), but maybe the greed of some and greenness of others killed it even faster.
  24. Well, to be honest: I guess the demant for games for the old console is shrinking as well, too many and too few collectors. Even the few awesome games are having trouble to sell well. I guess the market will be dead in a few years.
