Vectrex Shells and PCBs interest check (colors, multi-carts too)

Recommended Posts

Sorry for an off beat question: But does anyone know of the pitch for the Vectrex 36-pin (18 pins on each side) edge connector. I am looking to buy an edge connector from eBay to replace my Vector's edge connector, but wanted to make sure I get the right pitch. Thanks!

Unfortunately, Collectorvision is no longer getting into Vectrex games, so it would be very difficult to find someone who wanted a significant number of carts. George Pelonis has had to find an alternate method of housing his PCBs for Warrior and future games. I still think that doing a translucent run would be your best bet of getting a new mold made.

Can't he buy shells from Sean Kelly?

Well, that explains why Brecher is coming out through Luchs Soft directly in the near future then. Sascha never mentioned anything about Collectorvision when I spoke to him recently.

CollectorVision has decided to focus on Super Nintendo as its new endeavor which coincides perfectly with Sasha self-publishing his games.

 

I don't believe George can get them from Sean anymore. People receiving Warriors currently are stating that the PCBs come in raw molded shells or a 3D printed type. They have a few rough edges and pieces have been falling off.

Surprised he can't get these from Sean. I got another batch earlier this year from Sean (April), but I got the impression that Sean was running a bit low on the shells.

Don't like saying it too loudly here, but I think I bought the majority of his last batch, as Packrat has been selling so many Vectrex games since last Fall. I ran out of the first batch I bought in just 6 months, and it was supposed to last 3 years!

 

I'd still be interested in these, especially translucent shells. Depending on price, I would possibly be interested in a batch (but not 1,000 at this point in time — maybe in the next 6 months or so though).
