  1. SELLING ENTIRE COLLECTION FROM 1980's. I worked as a sales rep for Activision in the early 1980's and have a LOT of prototypes (14 total - 8 for 2600, 2 for 5200, 4 for Intellivision), used games in boxes (40+ and mostly Actiivision titles), a 2600 and a 400 game console and even typed original drafts of instructions for 5 games. I want to sell it ALL IN ONE LOT. According to these blogs the protos should be worth about $80 each, no idea of the value of the instruction manuals, and we all know the value of the other games and consoles (not much...). I also have two unopened, sealed ROBOT TANK by Activision for the 2600. Check out the pics. I live in San Diego and YOU will pay shipping. First $600 (plus shipping) can have it ALL, right now! Or make your best offer. and highest bidder just may get this Collection. I had trouble uploading the pics from Google so here's a link top the pics - just copy and paste... (Sorry, I am a salesman, not a tech!!!) LOL https://photos.app.goo.gl/WN5DyyNTrGApAnec7
  2. A journey that started 29 years ago came to completion the other day. My father bought me my first gaming system, the Atari XEGS upon release in 1987, but never bought me any more games for it, believing the 3 that had come with the system were enough (). Ever since then, looking at all the pics of games on offer on the back of the console box, and playing the demos at my local department store (Myer, Dandenong), I wanted them all! Now, nearly 3 decades after, with the sealed Kareteka that arrived last Wednesday, I have every single Atari XEGS game complete in box : ) Thank you dad for starting me on my gaming journey with this most interesting and cool little pastel buttoned system. I wish you were here to reminisce with me. May you rest in peace. 🍻

Full Review 2/15/22 - Reproduction ColecoVision Console Box Review 3/5/22 - Bull & Mighty's Critical Moment Gameplay Video Why I got back into collecting ColecoVision... …It’s all the Flashback’s fault! Seriously! Growing up, the ColecoVision was always “my system.” It really was the video game machine that I grew up on and followed religiously. Sure, I had a 2600 before it and a C-64 and then an NES after it, but it was the system that would change a part of my life as an adult. My “video game childhood” started out with the original Sears Tele-Games Pong which I received for Christmas in 1975, and then two years later Santa put a 2600 under the tree. I was only 7 at the time when the 2600 came out, and while I played it to death, I was still a bit too young to really appreciate games and how important they were about to become. But then 1982 rolls around, I’m reading Electronic Games Magazine and news about the ColecoVision at CES is talked about and I was blown away. At this point in my life I was addicted to any stand-up game to hit the arcades but disappointed in the current home-version offerings. Seeing what the ColecoVision was going to bring home blew me away, and I had to get one! The two childhood CV stories that I remember distinctly… First - I always knew where my parents hid my Christmas presents and one day after school I had discovered that they had bought the ColecoVision system, Expansion Module #1 and several games that were available. But it would be weeks before Christmas and I just couldn’t wait. Knowing the exact schedule of when my parents would be coming home and how much time I had between getting back from school, I would go and take the ColecoVision, and very carefully remove it all out of the box, hook it up to the TV, play it as long as I possibly could, and then with enough time to reverse the process, put it all back into the box EXACTLY as it was before and put it right back to where it was “hidden.” And of course I played off the “surprise” perfectly fine on Christmas day! To this day, my parents still have no idea I did this! The second was when I had saved up all my allowance to buy Donkey Kong Jr. For whatever reason that game came out (at least where I lived) at a higher price than other ColecoVision games and while at the store wanting to buy it, my parents wouldn’t let me due to the higher price. Thankfully, my parents didn’t pay too close of attention, and one day I rode my bike down to Gemco (big box store in SoCal in the 80s) and happily used up my allowance to purchase the game. They never even noticed that I had bought it. My collection of CV games as a kid included pretty much all the “common” games. I had all the arcade ports and many of the original games that came out up until the end, all the add-ons, controllers, etc. The only thing I never had growing up was Adam. Fast forward through the next few years… My gaming career went from ColecoVision to the Commodore 64 to NES/SNES, (One of my best friends had an ADAM so I had a lot of exposure to that as well) etc… But even through all those years, I had kept a ColecoVision plugged in, and it would always be a system I’d go back to. I ended up working in the video games industry from 1989 - 2011, which is an entirely other story, but I got into the industry because I was a retro games fan. During those first 10 or so years, I would go to flea markets and collect games. ColecoVision was always the system I looked out for the most. At one point I pretty much had collected just about everything that was out there at the time. I want to say I had really close to a complete collection of loose carts that were available in the USA, and many games CIB, and at this point I even had an ADAM up and running. ColecoVision was still “my system.” At this point, I was also collecting stand-up arcade machines, and when I was living on the east coast I had about 40 machines in my game room and probably another 50 or so PCB’s that I could plug into various machines. I spent a great deal of time restoring dedicated cabinet 80s arcade games. Here's a few pics of my "game room" (wish I had more and at better quality, but in those days, the smart phone didn't exist!) In 2002 I took a job with Activision and had to move back to SoCal. At this point in my life, I had become jaded with the video games business based on a number of different things that had happened and I was totally disenchanted with the industry. It was no longer a “hobby” for me, but a “job.” Disgruntled and uncaring about video games at this point, I sold everything I had. Didn’t even look back on it. Didn’t really care and moved to SoCal totally empty-handed as far as any retro games went. No consoles. No arcade games. Not even a handheld. For the first couple of years at Activision, I didn’t even look at retro games, even though I was working for one of the companies that is iconic in the eyes of retro game fans, my interest in video games has pretty much died at this point, and my less-than-stellar experience at Activision (it was not a great company to work for during the years I was there) most certainly didn't help. That being said, one of my co-workers was selling off some of their old game machines, and one of the machines was a ColecoVision with a hand-full of games. I instantly flash backed to childhood and I just had to have it. I bought it, took it home, made sure it worked, loved it, but put it in a box, and there it would stay, for probably another half decade. In 2011 I finally got out of the video games business, focused on my theme park travel site and roller coaster video production (yes that is what I do for a living) which I had been doing on the side for many years and we moved to Orlando pursue that more. (When you are doing work in the theme park business, Orlando really is the place to be!) If I said I had totally gotten out of retro gaming over those years, that would be a lie. While I was no longer collecting physical hardware or game carts, I always had an emulator or two on my computer. And it almost always consisted of MAME, ColecoVision, and Atari. I would find myself going back to play my favorite ColecoVision games from time to time. When I worked for WayForward, I did have a Vectrex sitting on my desk with a Sean Kelly multi-game cart, but that was mostly for “show.” In fact, when I moved to Orlando, I gave it away. Orlando was a total fresh start for me. No more video games career, time to shift gears, have a different focus, move forward and not look back. And things have been going very well since. Still have the emulators on my laptop and would play from time to time, but I had pretty much forgotten about games and anything retro. I had not given up on games entirely though. I always had whatever the latest Nintendo system was and a few games, but nothing really interested me to be fanatical. We’d play Mario Party with groups of friends, I was slightly addicted to Animal Crossing and always had a handful of NES Virtual Console games, but that was about it. And then the ColecoVision Flashback system came out… I thought “What a cool idea… so many of my favorites as a kid all in one place, and easy to hook up to the TV!” (I totally understood the licensing aspects of games so I knew some games couldn’t be included.) Two things went through my mind while playing the system: 1. This Flashback just isn’t good enough, it didn’t *feel* right, and that right there sparked my interest in pulling the ColecoVision I had sitting in a box for many years out of storage and playing the real thing, and 2. WHAT ARE ALL THESE HOME-BREW GAMES ON THE FLASHBACK!?!?! When I had gotten out of collecting games around 2001, there really wasn’t any home-brew (that I was aware of) out there for the system. At least not to the level that I was seeing on the Flashback system. I did some research and I simply could not believe that people were STILL MAKING GAMES for my childhood system keeping it alive! And not just tinkering around, or home-brew games that looked like someone punched in some code from Compute! magazine, I had found legit boxed games of arcade ports and original content that was just as good if not better than the original games that came out for the system 30 years ago. This blew my mind! I had to do a double take… “People are STILL making games for a system that hasn’t seen a retail store shelf in 30 years???” This was something that I realized that I needed to be a part of! And all of a sudden, something I hadn’t felt in 20 years was back… I was once again a “fan” of games instead of it being a “job.” As I played games like Circus Charlie, Buster Bros, and Girls Garden, I’ve just sat there thinking to myself “I honestly cannot believe I’m playing these games…on a COLECOVISION!!! WTF?!?!?” I had known of sites like Digital Press and Atari Age, had browsed them for reference when working on other games, but hadn’t really paid close enough attention to them to really understand what was going on in any of the retro gaming communities. Doing some searching around, it seemed like Atari Age was *the* community for ColecoVision fans and I registered. Seeing just how much I needed to get caught up on, I spent hours and hours neglecting my own business to read up on hundreds of threads (and I’m still getting caught up!) Through the help of many of the forum members I have now collected over 100 of the home-brews that have been produced over the years and have re-collected many of the loose released carts. I have been totally blown away by this community since I found it and I haven’t been this excited in anything game-related in years. So that’s my story… my introduction, etc… And if you read this whole damn thing then I’m even MORE impressed with this community! Looking forward to getting more caught up on the past and what the future of the system has in store! Thank you for reading!
  4. I've been picking up Jaguar stuff as I see them. Everything was bought locally (Central Canada). I'm slowly building a decent collection and I hope to get a lot more. I'm planning on setting up an area at a local retro gaming convention and I think a Jaguar theme would be neat.

  6. Cats vs, dogs, toilet paper over or under there are many epic choices but this one may be the most important one! So you have a collection and have tones of carts how do you organize / stack them and why is that the best way. Do you organize by rarity, alphabetical, cart type, publisher, color, date or some combination there of? Lets duke it out in an all out comment battle of which way is the right way.
  7. HI guys, I'm afraid I don't quite understand how to link to the Gallery like the pinned post said. I don't see the code they are saying to copy on my Gallery page. I hope using a URL link is okay instead. http://atariage.com/forums/gallery/album/1747-darth-dukes-atari-corner/
  8. I also have Atari Karts and Zero 5 new in the box on their way here from the UK. They can join my copy of Another World in all their rareness. Question, has Mutant Penguins becoe rare/hard to find? Mine was way too expensive.

  10. Hi everyone. A little more than a year ago I've started collecting Colecovision loose cartridges, just for fun, in fact I started with the better games (I think) and then added one, other one, another one and without warning I started a collection that finally I've completed in May/15/2013 (obviously not including the S.O.S cartridge, given that only one or two exists) Some items were pure luck, like the Super-Sketch (Sketch Master) that I don't even intended to get. The Wizard of Id Wizmath and Q*bert Qubes were other two very difficult to obtain. Besides I've got five Q*bert before getting one with good label and in the process I got one with a silver label (not here because I think it doesn't fit along the other Parker Brothers) It took me one hour to unpack, fifteen minutes for the pictures and another hour to pack again So enjoy it! [bTW, I have some duplicate Colecovision homebrews, but with one is enough to show ] Added Jun/07/2013 Now my Colecovision cartridges duplicates, most are in not so good state, primary cause of having to order more cartridges. This picture includes the rare Q*bert with silver label. Also the Facemaker and Smurf's Paint and Play Workshop cartridges doesn't work. Also included three Atari cartridges that doesn't work. My collection of homebrews (part 1), including the Zombie Near game I wrote (I've four of this one ) My collection of homebrews (part 2), including the Princess Quest game I wrote (I've two of this one ) And here is my very small Atari Collection. Update Jun/11/2013: My small MSX collection, including the games I've wrote. Update Jun/26/2013: A recent addition to my Atari collection, plus all the other platform cartridges in my collection. BTW, someone used a permanent marker in the Total Recall cartridge . For being my first two NES games, I choosed the most unplayable games I like very much the colorful label of the Atlantis cartridge for Intellivision Update Aug/25/2013: Recent additions to my Sega Master System collection . Only Out Run 3D has the manual, so technically it is the only CIB. Update Mar/06/2014: Just taken pictures of all my homebrew collection without duplicates: Update Jun/21/2014:

  21. Hi everyone, Well I have not been on here too much lately because I've been working hard and my wife (co-manager) and I are expecting a child in August. So, you all know what that means: time to make the gameroom into a nursery. I've had a good run of it, and will be keeping most of my collection but a lot of it will now be stashed away in our newly-purchased IKEA furniture (I plan to take a pic of all that soon too) and not as much on display/being played with. So, before breaking it down, I took some pictures. First off, my desk area or what I like to call "mission control": Yes, that's a monitor mounted on the wall--you can see it was not a good week for the Sub Commanders Fantasy Baseball Team... Pretty much everything within reach - the 800XL was out to test the awesome Santos Sdrive Micro, which is super-cool. Usually my Macbook Pro lives there, but everything else is a permanent fixture--or was! Love my Vectrex and Mega... Here is the TV area with all loose 2600 carts. I am keeping all the carts, but the TV is up for grabs. Seriously a great TV for the classic gamer--tube flatscreen, great picture, tons of hookups, S-Video, component, I am going to miss it so! If you are in the Bay Area let me know before next Wednesday--that's when the Sal Army truck is showing up. Here's a closeup of the awesome cabinet with etched videogame artwork in the glass. I love this thing! Need somewhere to sit and play, of course... And I like to listen to some tunes while playing homebrews! This is my custom-built NES shelf made from two IKEA units--I added extra shelves at the appropriate heights to store my accidental Nintendo collection. Seriously, I never intended to collect these things! The shelf was originally in our kitchen until I got my hands on it... worked out pretty nice! Finally, a sneak peek into the closet -- I'll post more of what's inside those doors soon but right now I gotta do some cleaning up and get to selling some things!
  22. How do you organize your collection and manage the various cables, controllers and oddly shaped carts? the 2600 has various different shaped carts, if you stack them you can't easily stack the Matel games. what are some of your setups for storing / displaying your games. Large stacks are a pain to take a game in the middle out and easily end up in a mess when doing sso. When it comes to controllers, the joysticks are rather large and won't fit in a standard ziplock bag and the paddle controllers can get a bit messy. Given that some controller are needed for some games you simply can's leave one controller in your system. How do you prevent the ugly rat's nest of controller cables / av cables and everything else. So give your suggestions, show some pics and help the whole community reduce clutter.
  23. Well what are yours? I think I will selectively add to my collection this year but overall it will be a slimming down year for me. Now that I have a lot of SD carts I realize I don't "need" to own a lot of games that are okay but not necessarily worthy of taking up physical space in my home when they could just as easily be a ROM on my cart. Also, having a game room now and fully unpacking my collection has made it apparent to me how much stuff I have and what I can afford to let go and what should probably stay. By the end of the year I plan to have a much leaner, but higher quality collection. Equal fun, less stuff. So in a nutshell: -Sell superfluous consoles/games/accessories/computers that I am just not using not intending to anytime ever (i.e do I really need 4 of every console? SELL!) -More high end SNES/Genesis carts, complete. (i.e. Track down a complete Streets of Rage III finally) -Get my NES collection in game cases with art -Finish souping up my vintage computer(s) -PLAY more this year, buy less -Track down Star Control for 3DO -Acquire a minty 2600 system changer for Intellivision -Figure out what to do with broken stuff
