ColecoVision Flashback Facelift Label Kit

Recommended Posts

+1 for the advice to watch Phil's video on installing the stickers. The tweezers are a must... not only for the careful removal of the backing, but aids in helping to center the stickers properly on the joynub. I accidentally ruined one of my round stickers by trying to peel the backing off with my fingernail, but Phil was nice enough to send replacements. If anyone stateside made the same mistake, LMK and I'd be happy to pay it forward by sending you my extra...

Luckily I had a good fingernail so I didn't need the tweezers. :-D

 

Got mine today and installed with no problems, quick and easy -- he shipped it out on Wed. Thanks for the fast service and it looks great on my Flashback!

That looks great!

I don't suppose you could do the same for the Intellivision Flashback? The gold decals on mine have some nasty looking air bubbles... :-(

Got my FB kit from Phil too. Wow! Very professionally done. Improves the look of the FB tenfold! Phil was super nice to deal with and my labels came very fast. Outstanding quality and service!

I received my Coleco Flashback Facelift kit. It looks great!

 

One thing I did before applying the large decal on the main body... I noticed that in photos posted by others you could see a little bit of the old decal and white plastic strips peeking out from the edges of the new large decal.

 

I took a large black Sharpie and inked the white strips and the old white decal black before applying the new decal. No more white 'peeking', you just see the main decal and it looks terrific!

Wow man! That is sexy!

I must agree. Can't just let a broken portable DVD player go to waste. And now I can play coleco anywhere there is an outlet!

If you decide to do another run of these at some point after running out of the originals, maybe consider something like these (original shown for comparison):

The new logo you made is vastly better than the original but also a tad cluttered. I'm not big on the Flashback font in particular.

I just wanted to let everyone know that the last Colecovision Flashback Facelift kit has been sold!

 

I will not be producing any more Facelift kits for the Colecovision Flashback units this year. It was a good run and thanks to all who have purchased. It's time I move on to other projects. The only way I would consider making more at this point is if there is some kind of ground swell for more of these.

 

Again, thanks to everybody who purchased a Facelift kit. You now have a unique flashback collectible. :)

Yeah, I can definitely use something like this... It bugged me that my CV Flashback didn't "look" like a ColecoVision from far away like the Atari & Intellivision Flashbacks do.

Put me down for another run in 2016; how many of us do you need to post to count us as a swell? :-D

I too am late to the party in fact only recently discovered this site, so if you decide to make more of these kits, I'd like to purchase at least one as well.

2016 is well underway, can we entice you somehow to do another run?

I concur, I'd love to purchase a few of these upgrade kits!!!
