  1. Hey folks I was wondering if there would be enough interest for me to make a very limited set of stickers for the whole 125 games. There are a bunch of the titles that could have two screen shot covers on both sides. Still debating on if it will fit and work on the Activision and iMagic carts. I am also considering remaking sets of replacement end caps. Mostly the white labels and rarer games that fall and fade off. Perhaps I might do the background color more like the boxes to make them unique. LMK what you think.
  2. Thanks guys I wasn't questioning the seller. Game does indeed look like the real deal. I just wasn't aware that AA actually reproduced that game for a short time. As for making boxes, I have indeed looked into reproducing them. Most of the common games boxes for the Intellivision are already online in HD. My printers can reproduce them for less then $3 each. With the Atari 2600 it much harder as you need close up pictures or an original to work with. But there are some great people like Marc O whom makes high quality items. And then there lots of other folks on eBay that just wheel and deal trying to make the most money. It hurts the real Atari enthusiasts like myself seeing obvious fakes, copies, & reproductions being sold as "Real" "Authentic" or "100% original"
  3. Well this is strange. I found a current listing of this game on eBay. This is one of those crazy impossible games to get. Like getting a finished copy of Garfield or Good luck Charlie Brown, it will likely never happen. And that Angie person selling a copy of the just Box and Rules for crazy prices. Albert and I have discussed scum bag sellers whom take a legitimate home brew then they make a Box and/or Rules. IMO that's the real crime of marking something up 5-10x what you paid for it. They spend very little time & money to make an empty box with instructions. The Amateur collectors will pay over $100 not knowing this is basic piracy. Good example here, is a copy of the game that just popped up on eBay. Item #(113274101252) To my knowledge there isn't a ROM dump nor has the Pink Panther ever been available as a legitimate downloadable ROM. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Atari-2600-Pursuit-of-the-Pink-Panther-Prototype-Game-by-Probe-2000-Reproduction/113274101252?hash=item1a5fa99e04:g:RHYAAOSw5WVblG1g:sc:USPSFirstClass!75243!US!-1
  4. I am also looking for the 410 Belts. LMK when these are available again. Thanks!
  5. I have a few sets of these 84 labels left for sale. I am reducing the price to just $20 with free S&H so I can move onto other projects. I should have some posters designs ready to print in a few months. Thinking it would be cool to take screenshots from the entire 125 perhaps made into a photo mosaic. I am also working on making reproduction boxes for INTV & Atari rare games. But it's a huge undertaking and there is not much profit. Most of the people I know prefer the real items as most fakes are cheaply made and obvious. Feel free to message me if you want the last sticker sets. Thanks.
  6. Sounds a bit like my experience buying from the infamous warehouse in Venezuela. I also went a little nuts because customs held my package for over a month. I was pretty freaked out by the news where people had the games cut open slashed boxes as inspectors were looking for drugs. Eventually I did get all the Taiwan Coopers I ordered came in good shape. Yes there is a little normal damage on the cartridge labels and inside just from the 35+ years accumulation age. I later ordered all of the end released Red Labels which were shrink wrap sealed. Opening those up its normal that games some had water marks on the rules and rust on staples. Frankly Mexico is about the only place where you can readily find the some NTSC games which might not have seen distribution at all here in the USA. Just be glad that you can acquired them and not worry about perfection. Perhaps try different consoles for inserting & playing them if the shell is bad or warped. Try the 2600 Jr model which seems to have the easiest game slot, I think that the 7800 is the pickiest for playing 3rd party games.
  7. Dang it Marc! Some fantastic stuff your selling off here. If only I wasn't so broke ATM. I have been drooling over a bunch of these titles for years. IMO very rare limited releases of newer games are better then Air Raid or other super impossible to find originals.
