Colecovision Auction Watch

Recommended Posts

Here you go kids....This guy looks like he runs a pawn or thrift store but somehow came across this "Prototype" in quotes.

It is War Room that oddly has giant lettering of "Prototype" on the label and again for a "Prototype" comes with the manual and lookup table as if it were sold normally.  What....No Overlays?

 

Who knows but not my cup of tea.

He only wants $199.99 and blessed us with free shipping, how generous of the guy.

So if you want this "Prototype" instead of paying your electric bill then here the link..

Thats how nap did their proto carts.

I guess that's the case then.
It seems like a total waste to make a test casing, professional test label for something that will be changed and burned new every other day.
Then again....
I wasn't running NAP Electronics or Probe 2000 back in 83.

I agree its a silly item to collect.

But for a company as big as philips magnavox i am sure making a label was nothing and they worried more to protect their intellectual property with professional documentation.

Not an auction.

 

Selling a Doubledown DK & DK Jr. Edition Controller Set with flippy manual. Details in my sales thread in the Buy, Sell, Trade forum.

I haven't seen this ever on EBAY auctions.

A Complete, in the box DINA 2 in 1.

Too steep for my tastes but some collector might want it.

Less than a year ago I saw a new in box one for like $400. Still too much. That is probably the same one.

Years before that, Telegames couldn't give these away, new in box and all.  Thought about picking one up but I already had enough actual ColecoVisions so I passed.

I have a dina system. I really like the controller. The built in game is neat too. And I picked up a couple of sg1000 games for it as a bonus. Very cool little system.

Yes, it is a nice interesting system and meteoric shower is a fun rather unique game. I like mine too :)

Just curious and I have no clue where to post this.

Are WE/I supposed to go through this cloudfire check every time WE/I look at a page now?

This is the 21st century and I don't see how this improve the experience other than adding an irritation.

It's DDoS protection for the server.  They are basically verifying that you are a real person trying to view the site and not an automated tool (or botnet) taking up connections.  The improvement in experience comes with the lower load on the server - which means your experience won't slow down when someone is attacking the website.  I suspect AtariAge has seen a performance impact from these types of attacks are are looking to protect themselves.  I only noticed it the first time I started a session - it doesn't recheck on every page load.

This was a temporary measure due to a large bot attack against the server that day which was greatly slowing the forum down.  As mingus above stated, you wouldn't have seen that on every page load, but it seems like you're just an unhappy person looking to complain about things, rather than asking why something like this might have been put into place.
