  1. Hello all, I'm new to these forums, but I'm an avid classic gamer, and I'm ready to step back a decade into the joy that is Atari. Having done some reading and being a collector at heart, it seems clear that to "do this right" I need to buy an Atari 2600 Woodgrain Heavy Sixer (1977, Sunnyvale) with original controllers. I don't care about boxes, manual would be nice but not necessary. Not looking for any games to start unless they are complete in box. While I don't collect my consoles CIB, I *do* collect my games CIB. It's also important to me that the console be in very good to excellent cosmetic condition and function properly. Finally, I'm wanting to get two of the original joysticks that make the lovely "clicking" sound when pressing the red button, and two of the original tennis paddles that have the Atari logo rather than the word "paddle." Hookups for modern-day televisions would be a plus but if not, I can scrounge that separately. If you have all of the above, please reply or PM me ASAP! To summarize, WTB: - 1 original Atari 2600 Woodgrain (NOT Sears) "Heavy Sixer" (1977, made in Sunnyvale) - without box is fine, manual would be nice, but not crucial - must work properly and be in very good cosmetic condition - 2 original joysticks (the kind with the red buttons that "click") - 2 original tennis paddles (the kind with Atari logo instead of word "paddle") - Not interested in pack-in games unless they are complete with box; while I don't collect console boxes per se, I only collect 100% complete games Thank you everyone for your time and hospitality!! (Edit: I now see that there is a separate "Wanted" sub forum. If any mods would be so kind as to move this post there, I would greatly appreciate it! Sorry for the oversight!)
  2. SOLD! I'm going to be doing a bit of Spring cleaning soon. Since I'm really hurting on funds, I plan on selling my Atari 2600 Sunnyvale Heavy Sixer. It has been in my basement for a while, so I'd like to test the system before selling it. The system worked the last time I used it. It is in good cosmetic condition. RF cable has a little wiring exposed near the opening on the console, but I wrapped it with electrical tape. I plan on selling this system with the power supply and maybe a controller or two if requested. Might add more to this package. Don't be afraid to give me some polite input if you have a reasonable offer. I will post pictures soon, or I can send photos by PM or email. I accept Paypal. Thanks for looking! Hope to make a deal here at AtariAge. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- UPDATE: Tested the system. Sadly, the system tries to run the game, displays properly for a few seconds, then gives out. My 4 switch had this issue until I gave it the correct power supply. I'm using a black Atari power supply with the big logo. It says it's compatible with the CX-2600. Made in Taiwan. From my understanding, there were a number of different power supplies for the Heavy Sixer. Early ones were grey. If you're still interested, I will sell it as-is for a massive discount. $25 excluding shipping. Please make an offer if that doesn't sound good. I can still send photos. It's a bit dusty, but in good shape. All aluminum switches are there and work fine. Not dirty at all, but could use light cart slot cleaning. Sunnyvale sticker is fully intact. Was once repaired by Atari2600.com based on the sticker on the bottom. Trim, woodgrain, plastic, and Atari logo are in very nice shape. I am not the first owner and did not mistreat it. I would consider this system worth restoring. I'd like to work with you on making a deal anyway. I can't repair it as I don't have the funds to invest in it. Let me know if you're still interested! Thanks for reading. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- UPDATE: SOLD!
  3. Saw this on Craigslist. http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ram/ele/4230901027.html
  4. Heads up Atari 8-bit Fans! Former Atari employees Al Alcorn and Dan Kramer will be speaking at this year's "Atari Party" which will be held on Saturday June 14th in Atari's old stomping grounds of Sunnyvale California. The event is free to the public at the Sunnyvale Public Library. I've mentioned previously in other threads that Al Alcorn needs no introduction but for those who don't know, he was Atari employee #3 and the engineer who built Pong for Nolan Bushnell. He also worked on the 2600, the Cosmos, and plenty of other projects. He's briefly featured in the Steve Jobs bio film Jobs; he's the Atari manager who tells Steve Jobs he's an a$$hole. Alcorn later went on to become an Apple Fellow. If you are unfamiliar with Dan "The TrakBall Man" Kramer, he created the TrakBalls for both the 2600 and 5200 amongst many other projects back at Atari Inc. [the 2800, remote control joysticks, the Cosmos, etc]. There will be plenty of Atari 8-bit computer hardware present, as well as 16-bit STs, Atari arcade machines, and the various Atari game systems [as well as modern consoles, and PCs emulating classic Atari titles]. Bill Kendrick is looking for volunteers, especially people willing to bring hardware. Here's a link to the official website: http://www.newbreeds...tariparty/2014/
  5. A couple weeks ago, my biggest wish was a dream come true. I love the Atari 2600. I have a Light Sixer, 4 switch woody, and a Darth Vader Model. But no Heavy Sixer. I was shopping around at a retro store which sells games, movies, and CD's called Movie Trading Company. And low and behold before my eyes in the glass container out In the wild there was an original Atari VCS Heavy Sixer in the case for $50. I lost it and my mouth dropped to the floor. I immediately purchased it, brought it home, gave it a great cleaning inside and out and is now in my game room. It is in immaculate condition, all the switches work and feel great, and plays flawlessly. I am so happy to finally get this awesome piece of Atari History. I felt like a little boy getting the gift he always wanted for X-Mas. :-)
  6. An email, as well as a letter with pictures of both examples have been sent to Glenn Hendricks (Mayor) and Gustav Larsson (Vice Mayor) of Sunnyvale, CA. I'm dedicated to making this happen, but I understand it'll be a process. I wanted to stop by and share this with you all. Feel free to voice your opinions. I'll be sure to keep in touch as this project develops. –Evan
  7. I found this in my console stacks yesterday. I've never seen a 4-switch Vader promo before. Especially one manufactured in Sunnyvale.
  8. From the album: Darth Duke's Atari Corner

    I've learned from this great website that the fact that my console says Sunnyvale, CA on the back means that it was made the first year the Atari 2600 came out and is a 'heavy sixer' model. I was really happy to find that out.

  9. Need a replacement lower outer shell for yours? Working on an Atari project and could use this piece from Sunnyvale? Look no further! The shell has been lightly cleaned and looks quite good for its age. There may be some scratches, scuffs, dust or dirt present. The Sunnyvale sticker is unmistakable and in good condition, with just a few stray markings. Includes all eight original screws, too. Please see pictures for exact condition. Shoot me a PM with your offers!
  10. I would like to buy a mint condition Atari 2600, Heavy Sixer made in Sunnyvale, preferably the Sears model. Sears model or not, it must be in mint condition and I will pay what we agree is fair. Thanks! EDIT: Purchased one.
