  1. I had one a few years but it never worked right, bought a second and it never worked exactly right either but to be fair I never really did much to them. I just used the cables from my Ataris on those but I have since gotten rid of all my Atari consoles and replaced them with a Retron 77. I'm sure I'm really endearing myself to the community here by saying stuff like that. Coleco was actually my first console as a kid and I've always had a soft spot for them. We recently downsized houses though and I had gotten rid of the majority of my collection. However I came across this lot a few weeks ago and got it for next to nothing and thought I would try to save it from the trash bin for someone as I know they are very uncommon (at least in Appalachia where I live).

  2. Ok, I ordered an av cable from ebay. In a week or two I guess I'll be able to find out what this can do. Sent from my SM-G781U using Tapatalk
  3. Is anybody else noticing these things becoming hard to find? These are going for more than new Switch Lites and the same as Used Switches at my local mom and pa game stores (Roughly $300 USD). They seem to fly off Facebook marketplace anytime they are listed below $200 and that seems to be about where decent ones on Ebay go as well. I'm guessing people are sniping them because gamestop still sells them in the 125-150 range and they are perpetually out of stock. When did these things shoot to the moon?

  4. Here are few more pics of the main console. Sent from my SM-G781U using Tapatalk
  5. I'll add some more pictures, and yes the one Adam controller is toasty. Sent from my SM-G781U using Tapatalk
  6. Here are pics, I was having trouble loading them on the original post. Sent from my SM-G781U using Tapatalk
  7. Hi guys, I know the old adage that a person can't buy and sell an item at the same time but maybe someone can give me a rough guess. I picked up this lot untested at a flea market a few weeks and have decided I'm ultimately never going to mess with it as I've gotten to the point in my life where I don't like fighting old hardware anymore. ( I know,shame on me but I've kept my old carts and some clone systems). I got a great deal and maybe someone will want to tinker with it. The guy told me everything worked but I've been told lie several times so let's assume it all needs a good going through. The lot included: 1 : Colecovision system with original controllers and 2 power supplies, in pretty good shape cosmetically considering the age and that it was bought at an outdoor flea market. 1: Coleco expansion module 1 , also in pretty good shape. 2 sets of Adam controllers, 1 set is nice and the other has 1 ok and 1 crusty 1 set of super action controllers, again both are nice but 1 has a fray in the cord.

  8. Are you still looking? Sent from my SM-G781U using Tapatalk
  9. As someone who is always 3 or 4 years behind on released I did frequent them often as I'd rather buy a used game for 10 or 20 bucks than digitally download one for 40 or 50. I really don't need them anymore though as I can usually find stuff on Ebay or Amazon and get it by the end of the week. I will miss being able to dig through specials or maybe if I had a controller crash or something but I can get those at wal mart I guess if there was some sort of gaming emergency.

  10. Hey guys I played the heck out of FO4 and recently picked up New Vegas. It seems to me it was a lot harder to start. This could just be my fuzzy memory due to me running around with a God Tier character since I always do all the side quests and end up finishing most rpgs near max level. The whole having to repair equipment and certain enemies just being overpowered such as the legionary assassin squads and the huge clumps of death claws in certain spots. I have heard that 3 is even harder then the other 2 but I haven't started on that yet. Does anyone else have an opinion on that. Sent from my SM-A205U using Tapatalk
  11. First off for context I was born in Nov 79. I vaguely remember us having the radio shack pong unit but the first real console I remember us having in the house was a ColecoVision in 84 or 85. My dad had scored a great deal on one with a bunch of games during the crash. I played it a lot and actually have fonder memories of it than I do the Nes which I got Christmas of 86 or 87. I didn't get my Atari until I got a light Sixer in 90 or 91 which became the console in my room. I played it quite a bit but almost every game I owned was a hand me down. I remember buying 2 games at Odd Lots once , one I know was Solaris but I can't remember the other. Oddly I have no clue what happened to it. I fear I likely traded it for a few comics or sports cards. Sent from my SM-A205U using Tapatalk
  12. I'm assuming it works on the us power systems? Sent from my SM-A205U using Tapatalk
  13. I'm anxiously awaiting the 2nd run of these. Both my Colecos are on life support and my power supplies are also suspect. There just aren't many out there in the wild. Sent from my SM-A205U using Tapatalk
  14. Well, if the Retron does the job, has hdmi and isn't 40 years old, it seems like the most practical options. Has anyone had issues with theirs? Sent from my SM-A205U using Tapatalk
  15. Well she makes more money than I do and is a great cook. Not to mention I'm old ,fat and balding so it's easier to buy consoles. Sent from my SM-A205U using Tapatalk
