Reproduction of boxes and variations

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody!

 

This is to announce that I'm starting a reproduction/variation box service.

 

You can send me request for any Colecovision game box, even for games that never had one.

I may also be able to reproduce manuels.

 

For homebrew games, I will produce reproduction or variation box only with the agreement of the author and editor.

 

There will be a note on the back of the box to tell it is not a genuine box.

 

To keep price at $20+shipping, boxes will be produced by Colecomaster in Canada when he prints stuff for Collectorvision, so there might be delays between ordering and production.

 

PM me for any question or request. Thanks.

This is incredibly good news - thanks to you and Colecomaster for doing this.

 

I'll get the ball rolling with my list:

  • Donkey Kong (US & CBS 1)
  • Slither (US & CBS 2)
  • Turbo (US & CBS 1 & CBS 3)

Although not sure what CBS boxes would best suit the Slither and Turbo. The CBS Roller Controller oddly came in a three language box which doesn't match either the CBS 2 or 3 game boxes in style (although I think CBS 2 style is the closest). With the European release of the driving controller I believe that CBS 3 would be about the closest fit). I'll follow this up with a PM but wanted to let others know what boxes I would be asking for.

Thank you for putting the note on the box! One of my biggest fears with repro boxes is that people are intentionally misleading people with them on sales. That's always been my biggest objection to them.

Frogger, Popeye and Q*bert can be easily acquired on eBay and other means CIB for very cheap. Also note that Frogger and Q*bert were released by Parker Brothers in 1-piece and 2-piece boxes (Popeye was only released in 1-piece style) and you could probably acquire both box versions of each game for price of a new repro box or slightly more.

 

Slither and Turbo repro boxes have been made already by phattyboombatty and CollectorVision and you should PM them for availability.

I got a 2 piece popeye box when I was looking to get all the 2 piece and 1 piece variants.

 

It has english and french and looks like it came from canada.

Should have been more clear about the Popeye box...

 

the U.S. version only came in a 1-piece box where as the Canadian version (French and English) and European version (think 6 languages) came in a 2-piece box.

 

Since I haven't taken the dive into collecting French Canadian and European variations of CV titles, I tend to state things based on U.S. release versions but will be more mindful in the future.

This is the last day for ordering a box.

 

Colecomaster will shortly print the collectorvision boxes for the next batch of games.

 

I've had only time to prepare the boxes below.

 

If you're interested, please send me an email.

Do you take orders for boxes of ColecoVision games that don't actually exist, at least not yet? :)

 

There are lots of games I would love to see released on the ColecoVision, but there are a few that stand out among all of them:

 

- Space Shuttle - A Journey Into Space

- DragonSlayer IV - Drasle Family (also known as Legacy of the Wizard on NES)

- Bomber King (also known as Robowarrior on the NES)

- R-Type

- Gauntlet

 

These games all exist on the MSX using MSX1 graphics and regular PSG sounds, so they could theoretically be ported to the ColecoVision. Of course, porting these games would be an awful lot of work, but I figure if the boxes are already done, then we'd be one small step closer to a ColecoVision release. :P

From what I see....and hear, that's exactly the same game

How cool it is!

Now, we really need this one for the CV :lust:

I love planting seeds in your head. ;)

I was not aware Robowarrior was on MSX

Now, I'm very tempted to get this one converted ;)

If you do, I'll be the very first one in line to purchase it! :)

 

You hear that, Crapahute? Better get started on that Bomber King box... ;)

I will see what I can do ;)

 

I though I was the only one who like Robowarrior

Robowarrior is an acquired taste. The appeal of the game is in blowing stuff up just to see if there are any power-up icons hidden under the trees. I had loads of fun with that game on the NES. :)

 

EDIT: It's too bad Solomon's Key was never released on the MSX. That's another NES game that would be great on the CV.
