  1. I agree so far, but I have to add that neighter boxes nor manuals were designed to be notepads Serious, in every household are countless pieces of papers, so there is no need to write on a box or a manual, which is pretty senseless because the space is limited. But I am happy that there are people who think different about that, because it was the only chance for me to get a new manual without paying a new Fathom
  2. Yeah, but if I look to the prices of Moon Patrol... Of course there is no "Space" in the title, but the game is imo not 150 Dollar worse than Space Patrol ^^ As a collector its no question, but if we are talking about gaming I would advise to buy the VCS Version and also as a collector I would dehort people to buy homebrews for 160 Dollar.
  3. I found a trade here on AA and a new manual is on the way home. @ boxpressed This dont make me any happier, I never get why people write on boxes or manuals. Sure, some manuals have special pages for some notes, thats something I dont accept in my collection, but I can understand, but for havens sake: Why use the manual as a sheet of paper? Isnt there anything else to write the stupid high scores down?
  4. But isnt there a new run this year? I guess I read something like that and this would be much cheaper and supports the developer. Its funny, but since I heard about the rumors of a new run Ebay seems to have more Space Patrols
  5. Here you can buy new old stock controllers and parts: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fliwer2006%2Fm.html%3F_nkw%3D%26_armrs%3D1%26_from%3D%26_ipg%3D%26_trksid%3Dp3686 I guess repairing these controllers is very easy, if you have the right parts. I dont know if you can repair a damaged circuit matrix, or if its irreparable.
  6. I guess my Tutankham manual would be a nice place for that Astrosmash score But it seems I found a trade for the manual, so my mode is much better then yesterday
  7. My problem is: The seller isnt a normal person who sells his stuff, its a seller who is specialized on Intellivision games. If it were a privat auction I would agree with you, but in this case I cant. He take NINE Pictures to show every detail and three of them showed the manual. Its no accident that not even one showed the flaw. Three picturs of a 4 page manual and not even one which give me the chance to see the flaw by myself. The box looked beautiful, I wondered why he called it just "good", but my assumption was that he is very critical with the condition. That was a mistake, he isnt very critical, he just hides flaws, which I call major flaws. I skipped the River Raid last night, because this seller has shown the writing on the last page. I wished I had bought this, because he was honest and earned the high price more than this seller. Well, I cant change anything and I have to find a nice trade or replacement manual to be happy, but I cant be happy which a total Payment of 230 Dollar for that, knowing that it will cost at least 50 Dollar to upgrade the condition to my standards. Edit: By the way: Its no different for me if there is a whole novel or just one letter in the manual. Its the same like writing in books, I'll would never do things like that. I really hope that at least Congo Bongo comes as descriped, if that has also hidden flaws I'll have to kill some Asteroids in Astrosmash
  8. No refunds, the only way is to send it back, which is really senseless for me because the amount I had to pay for shipping and fees. I hope to find a new manual some day, but I wont buy anything again from that seller. Of course it could be worse, but its really not the kind of business reputable sellers should do. Maybe I can trade it in that condition, if somebody needs a Fathom and has rare titles to offer, let me know
  9. Today my Fathom arrived and I was very happy about the condition at first, but then I looked a bit closer to the manual and found something disappointing: Look at the dolphins mouth. May I am too picky, but I paid 160 Dollar + 36 Dollar shipping + around 40 Dollar fees for that, it really pisses me off. No word about that in the description, no picture which shows this flaw, collecting stops beeing funny with that kind of sellers. If anybody is not as picky as I am: I would trade this manual with another Fathom manual without writings. I offer to take the shipping costs and add 20 Dollar. I also can offer some other videogames, if someone may want to trade please contact me, I think we'll can make a deal. Also if someone is selling is loose manual: I am your man.
  10. I bought a huge lot some month ago (17 games). My Venture had some discoloration on the backside, but the rest was really nice. Of course its "just" INTV and not Mattel, but its really beautiful in the shelf.
  11. The gains of today: Mouse Trap - 25$ The Dreadnaught Factor - 17$ attachable joysticks - 25$ Its all new old stock from Venezuela
  12. Math Fun was to expensive for me, but I was outbid on Word Fun. Its no problem, because I habe both and I have time with my upgrades. But unfortunately I was outbid on Tron Solar Sailor, it was the mist interessting game for me But well, its quite okay, I'll get another Tron.
  13. I made some cheap buys. Roulette ans Checkers is completely new, all the other games are just upgrades of my collection. Its nothing special and may NASL is a bit overpriced, but its the same seller, so its quite okay: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181642351%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649 http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181667104%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649 http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181665816%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649 http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181664551%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649 http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181663205%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649 http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181660747%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649 http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181655790%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649 http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181653449%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649 http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F271181621701%3FssPageName%3DSTRK%3AMEWNX%3AIT%26_trksid%3Dp3984.m1439.l2649
  14. eBay Auction -- Item Number: 360627402515 It wasnt sold two tomes for that amount, I hope he gets the hattrick.
  15. Price is the keyword: What is the value of a boxed (box not very good shaped) european version of the ECS? I am talking about the brown one
  16. Anyone need a CiB Fathom? eBay Auction -- Item Number: 140946838485
  17. I prefer to wait a bit longer and get a finished game. If you ask me, take as much time as you need and finisch the game as good as possible. So dont worry about a couple of weeks
  18. Is there a chance you can put a oldschool mode on the cart? I dont know if its possible, but if I got it right, there are at least two different game modes, maybe you can ad the primitive and coolest version of the game as a goodie? I am no developer, maybe its impossible or very hard, but it would be awesome to see Pong on the Intellivision like it was in the 1970s Edit: It would be even funnier if KillRobotz has a oldschool-Pong mode Seriously, I cant await to use my IntelliVoice for that game, hopefully there will be many more Voice-Games in the future.
  19. Whats about Pong? I know there is Paddly Party this year, but I also want a damn simple version of Pong. Black screen, white lines and just one sound effect (maybe two if the return is slightly different). Maybe its not the most beautiful game, but its the best multiplayer game alltime. Add a challenging AI to the multiplayer and my most wished game is ready to go.
  20. Adding the year seems to be a great idea! It makes the repro box more authentic, because its a bit senseless to write 1983 or something like that on a box produced in 2013 and its also very nice if there are several runs of repro-boxes. Its also a very dicreed evidence on the outside if its a real deal, or a repro, no need for asking for pictures of the flaps. I would also prefer if the part "distributed by INTV Corp" (just an example) would be replaced with the new distributor.
  21. I dont claim the creators of the box as resellers, but in fact some people encroach the work for gaining profit. Its a pity, but its Ebay reality. And wouldnt it be even more creative to make a new looking box, with a new artwork, than "just" copying the original style? I respect the work behind projects like the Repro Box Set 1, but I also see the problems which came along with that projects. If this set were made like this box here, as gatefold, it would be no problem. So I appreciate the conversion of INTV Box to Mattel gatefold box.
  22. Well, I dont like fake boobs and so I dont like fake boxes I dont understand why I need a box which seems to be original, but in fact just is a copy. Like I said: This one is easy to figure out, but the repro boxes for Spiker and co arent that easy and it doesnt hurts if there is an obvious sign of reproduction on the outside of the box. Of course its not neccesary to write "fake box" on the cover, but it would be nice if there is something helps you to figure out the real deal and the fake on Ebay except the small flaps which were often not shown. But I already noticed, boxes are a sensitive topic
  23. Tons of bacon? I dont know how much bacon costs in America, but in Germany one ton costs at least 20.000€ (and its the cheapest bacon you could buy) Bacon is pure gold
