The VCS heavy sixer had been my dream console. The first 2600 I ever played was my uncle's 4-switch Vader in the early 80s and I finally got a light sixer of my very own a few years ago which was pretty nice, but this is the model that I've always wanted. I'm so happy to finally own one, and everything on it works like new.

The only thing that made me really sad was when I got it home and discovered that heavy sixers will not fit properly in the 2600 travel case.

A cool story, went to my local gaming store today because they had just moved to a new, larger location in town. They must have brought out some older stock, because I saw this inside of a locked glass case. When I asked about it, I was told that it was a broken display unit, but if I wanted a 2600 they had a few working ones behind the counter (which were all 4 switch 2600A's). So I asked them if they would consider selling this display unit, and if so how much. They told me $9.99! Plus everything in store was 15% off for the holiday. It was dusty as heck, but after a good cleaning, it's nice, definitely looks older than any heavy sixer I've come across in the wild. Kind of strange the double manufacture sticker (which is white paper, not metallic), but I'm not about to try to peel the top one off to see what's underneath. Works fine though, just the 'game select' and 'game reset' switch springs have given out, so they have to be manually pushed back up (which is probably why they thought the console was broken).
