  1. Doug TenNapel@DougTenNapel Good article. And I’d be glad to have Scullion on my show to talk about anything he wants. He’s never once tried to contact me even for a simple fact check.
  2. You are right... "replicate" is not an appropriate word. I think "stealing" some of the ideas that Tommy made public. It's obvious that Tommy knows the value of being real and open about his vision for Intellivision Amico and how he plans to get there. I believe his approach is very impressive and modern, but it's disheartening that one of the largest corporations in the world has just announced something huge and its distinguishing factors are that the games will be exclusive to the service and Apple is funding legendary designers to work develop the exclusive content. It's exactly what Tommy previously reported for Amico. But then again, maybe it's just me. On a much smaller (almost incomparable to Tommy's) scale, I am going through an experience now where my cousins and I developed a process for making a delicious hopped bourbon and spent 3 years grinding it out in our free-time to be placed in about 60 stores and about half as many restaurants and bars in Ohio, and then Jameson swooped in last Spring with a multi-million dollar commercial TV campaign during the Winter Olympics and every bar in Ohio now has a bottle of Jameson IPA whiskey on their shelf. Now... the damaging effects are two-fold. Their product is about a "B" in my opinion, so all our potential future customers are likely pre-judging our hopped bourbon as not so great, and secondly, we walk in and they immediately think we are a cheap knockoff of Jameson although we predated them by 2 years. Our already challenging job of educating bar managers has had it's difficulty level multiplied. We will keep plugging at it with smiles of course, but being knocked back hard by the biggest of guys, in a word, sucks.
  3. It sounds to me that Apple is listening to "our" Tommy and trying to replicate his plans with their new Apple Arcade today. WTF?! https://venturebeat.com/2019/03/25/apple-will-fund-exclusives-for-apple-arcade-game-subscription/
  4. Awesome pic!! Thanks for posting. I said Sears only because of the recent bankruptcy news. My store in Northeast Ohio that had the video game console displays was Gold Circle.
  5. Can I go to the electronics department at my local Sears to test out the console and to play one of the games from behind the locked glass door before I buy?
  6. Did someone here buy this? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intellivision-Console-Lot-With-Games-and-Extras-/123182370983?nordt=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=OLk7OeFMQzGQQLCa2uvqiwAztTc%253D&orig_cvip=true It appears to be a brand new sealed 2609.
  7. I see it says "Out of Stock" on your website, but are the physical copies discontinued? Thanks.
  8. You got the ECS version of the Chess overlays. You can play 2-on-2 or 1-on-3.
  9. Hello, TandyVision? Where art thou? Trying to get connected to you.
  10. Hello, everybody. I'm here. Sorrowful and shameful. Not an excuse, but the reasons for my recent absence since I last logged on with exuberant excitement for finally receiving the grab bag myself... back-to-back-to-back funerals followed by a week's vacation with a loved one who is solely responsible for pulling several members of my family out of financial collapse, where she revealed her diagnosis of aggressive cancer on her chest wall. I realize that we all have similar stories and times where things get this tough or even tougher, and I feel really bad for holding up the progress on this awesome community project. I should have been able to carve out a few hours in there to take care of this business for the betterment of this fine group. So now... to get it back on track... I have done just that. The wondrous packing tape laminated box is re-stocked, packed and ready to go. Where do I find out who to send it to next? Thanks in advance for any level of understanding and/or restraint from ostracization. Peace to you all: :TestaOn
  11. Came home from an incredible, soul-refreshing excursion to the bayou for NOJazzFest to find on my porch, a corrugated cardboard and packing tape sculpture! Very well done. Reminiscent of those tables at Ponderosa with an inch and a half of clear-coat laquer covering them. And now... to get my pro-grade surgical equipment out and see what goodies might lie inside... ... Wow! Did I ever hit the jackpot! I think BBWW has committed a felony. But one of which I most certainly approve. All evidence points to him intercepting my long-winded, bourbon-and-tear-soaked santa letters for the last 33 years and shape-shifted into my personal Kris Kringle! I am looking at about a dozen things I'd like to own in this surfboard-waxed container. xxxooo
  12. Is anyone else selling IntyBasic Showcase? I don't see it on Rev's site anymore.
  13. Are you still taking reservations? If so, add me please.
