I like to collect magazines with advertising 'Intellivision, there are othe

This is a corner of the hobby where you really need lots of time and patience and access to old materials. Never did check any libraries' card catalogs to see how rigorously they documented magazine contents. As a yoot I bought the usual rags like Electronic Games, et.al. but curtailed purchases if they didn't meet my Intellivision quota. Kinda regret that now, but then there also got to be quite a few, and the selection was limited, being in a small town.

 

These scans are awesome! It looks like quite a few good articles were published... Wonder how much of it was actually thinly veiled marketing material from Mattel.

Somewhere I may still have an Encyclopedia Britannica "Book of the Year" that has one of those stock Mattel Intellivision gameplay pics in it...

These all come from the thread i started earlier.

 

This archive.org site is really awesome and they have a lot of old magazine scans.

 

This one is the TV Gamer magazine that Lathe26 mentioned to me. And they have a lot of Intellivision pictures and articles.

And this ones called Big K. Right in the first issue is an article about Intellivision in Britain possibly disappearing.

Ooooh, I love the mags, paperwork and other Inty ephemera. One day there will be a thread and it will be epic. :)

November 1983

Cool! Dangit though, not in my collection. Grrrr. If memory serves, my meager earnings were going more into the arcades, records, movie posters (the local monoplex owner auctioned them off... over the phone or in person), and comics, and $3.00 an issue was a lot of money! Curse you, Columbia Record Club!!!!
