  1. From the album: My Game Collection

    the Serial number of said heavy sixer
  2. Hey everyone, I am new to these forums, I have a heavy sixer console, complete with grey ac adapter, 1977 joysticks (no hex discs), 1977 paddles and a few other things. Here are some pictures:
  3. Hi, I'v been a collector for many years, but never been active on forums such as AA. Lately I've noticed the topic PAL Heavy 6-er pop up here and there. Since I (well a collector friend has it now) found a PAL Heavy myself, I thought it would be nice to post pictures. It's a fleamarket find in the Netherlands. Found with some original text label carts. Bought from a non - collector, non reseller, private seller. Cheers, Rene
  4. From the album: My Game Collection

    same heavy sixer, closeup to reveal base
  5. Hi Guys This is my first post here so please be gentle with me. I'm from the UK and I've recently bought a couple of Heavy Sixer's from the States. I have modded one of them with a composite video kit and it works great. However, I was wondering what else I would need to do to convert the system into a PAL unit? I've read about the TIA and how it differs so my questions are: a) Could I replace the system board only with a PAL light sixer, keeping the switch board and all other original components? Would this work? b) If I was to keep the system board and replace the TIA with a PAL unit, is there anything else I need to consider? The info on the internet I've found seems to be pretty vague. I read something about the crystal also needing replacing and maybe some other bits? Thanks in advance
  6. I've done stop motion animation for a very, very long time. I'm kinda a wizard at it. I know a lot of little tricks. It's not as easy as it looks... I call my stop motion multidimensional masterpiece of episodic calamity.. The Megaverse ENJOY!! (Buttons said I needed to be LOUDER!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpcG9eS9rl4&feature=youtu.be
  7. Noticed this on Amazon today. I know it's only an applique but the idea appeals to me for some reason. It's real wood too unlike the original 2600's. I don't know why but the idea of wood grain consoles appeals to me so I may have to pick this up https://www.amazon.com/Limited-Nintendo-Switch-WoodySkins-Original/dp/B06W5P4T37/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1517346351&sr=8-10&keywords=nintendo+switch+wood+skin There is also this one which is sadly vinyl but I thought was cool enough to include. Crazy. Its a good time to be a wood loving gamer! https://www.amazon.com/Nintendo-Switch-Skin-WOODGRAIN-Release-console/dp/B06Y192TRZ/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1517346351&sr=8-4&keywords=nintendo+switch+wood+skin This last one is real wood again. Epic!! https://www.amazon.com/Toast-Real-Wood-Walnut-Cover-Dock/dp/B074H27KL9/ref=sr_1_2?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1517346553&sr=8-2&keywords=nintendo+switch+real+wood+skin
  8. Ok, I have a Vader, a Jr. and a 7800. I use the Jr. 99% of the time and I'm really happy with the performance of it. I find the picture quality to be better on the Jr. than on the Vader. I'm considering selling the Vader and the 7800 and putting the money toward a decent sixer. Don't get me wrong, I really like the 7800, but don't play it very often. I only have 4 games for it and I just can't afford some of the games I'd be interested in having for it. I figure there's someone out there who could give it a better home and actually get some enjoyment out of it. I've always like the look of the sixers, but when it comes to the difference between the light and the heavy, is it purely cosmetic or are there differences in the the actual electronics? Is the Sears version any different/better than the Atari version or is it just a matter of looks? I can tell you I like the look of the wood grain on the Sears more than the Atari, but I'm on the fence about the silver around the switches, so it's 50/50 for me. I wouldn't mind hearing how many people prefer the look of the Sears and how many like the look of the Atari version and why. I'm interested in hearing opinions on how people feel about the price difference between the light and the heavy. For someone on a tight budget, is it worth it to try and get a heavy or just be satisfied with the light sixer? I know the ones made in Sunnyvale are higher priced, for someone who just wants a nice looking sixer to play, is it worth the difference in price? Some of you know, I'm on a fixed income. So price plays a big factor in everything. The way I figure it, all I can spend is what I make from selling my Vader and 7800 and possibly some other stuff. I don't know if it will be enough to get a decent Heavy sixer or not, but that's my goal. I guess what I'm looking for is some reassurances that a light sixer is just as good, in case I can't raise enough money for a heavy. However, if you convince me that only a heavy sixer will do, then it might force me to dig up more stuff to sell, so I can get one. (I've got another stone lodged in my kidney, so if my post is a little "weird", it's because I'm on some serious pain medications right now.)
