Colecovision in a purplebox?

Recommended Posts

Haya all, I was looking around eBay for colecovision stuff and noticed this?

 

I think I have been pretty good at reading the history of Coleco and seeing what was out there but this is the first time I have ever heard of this box:

Can anyone confirm this is the real deal (at least history wise).

 

Thanks!

It's real, it's a proto, and it's extremely rare.

and to put things into perspective (my perspective), the following Kiosk sold for $1000.00 last year; I'd consider that a better buy at this point ... But it all depends on the collector and many many opinions...

Just FYI, everyone talks about auction stuff in the pinned auction thread at top of this forum which had people already talking about this so you know where to look in the future.

Old news! :lol:

 

This is the second one to hit eBay in the last 4 years and the third one known to exist.

 

The CV Kiosk would indeed be a lot more exciting to see become available... only 2 complete are known to exist and some parts from a 3rd that are in very rough shape.

Say what.. there's a 3rd boxed purple pre-production system out there? I never thought there'd be that many.. :?

I know a member here has a loose pre production console ..so that would be 4 pre production consoles, only 3 CIB. Standard controllers with spinners..2 known to exist?

The CV kiosks are way cool, I hope to attempt a replica someday. I hope Trade-n-Games does a video on that CV kiosk soon, its such a rare item, more so than the Inty kiosk he showed. Maybe more will surface ;)
