The Rarest Intellivision Game (Old School) In My Opinion!

Recommended Posts

I just spent year trying to buy this game and it finally arrived today. In my opinion this is the rarest Intellivision games there is. I have only ever seen one of them. Perhaps someone out there knows of another one and if you do, please reply to let me know where. The box has a couple of issues but if it's one of a kind then I can put up with a minor flaw.

At first I was thinking I had seen Digiplay Pinball before but just realized this is an actual Mattel box. Nice find, Hankster!

 

Just when you think you've seen everything, lol

It is the Digiplay version, look at the fine print on the back.

The Digiplay versions of the games that were originally Mattel Network titles as opposed to Activision or Imagic often had Mattel Electronics on the front.

Ah, I did not know that. You variant hunters really are the archivists for our hobby. It's good to see that fellow hobbyists are the ones keeping the history alive for all collectors.

The only other pic I saw was on the Intellivision Brasil site here Pinball. Even the guy who runs that site doesn't own it, got the pic from someone else.

A couple of years ago there was one on mercadolibre in a big lot of a bunch of other games but within an hour it was removed from the lot with a big red X,

the rest of the lot was still for sale.

I have a friend in Brazil who has helped me buy all the other Digiplay games but we weren't fast enough, that big X haunts me to this day :)

Ok, I'm like 51% convinced that Hankster's box is the same one from the Brasil website. The similarities in wear marks is uncanny. Hank's, being the more recent pic, theoretically would have additional marks and could have some smudges that were cleaned, but any major wear from the Brasil pics should (and kinda do) line up with Hankster's. The glaring exception being the placement of the Novo Endereco sticker on the back. The blue vs purple color difference is there too, but could it be due to different lighting? At first I didn't think they were the same, but the more I looked the more similarities I saw. Compare:

Ok, maybe I'm crazy :dunce:

 

No you're not, they're really similar. Good eye. I think it's more a case where the boxes all tend to have similar high and low points based on their construction so they tend to wear in the same places.

 

If you look at the Novo sticker on the back of each you can see that they are not in the same place. The Brazil site one is placed just past the word DIGIPLAY beneath while Hank's sticks out before it.

I've never seen something that self-repairs like that

The box mistakenly says copyright data east usa and the instructons mistakenly has copyright tsr hobbies.

 

I think I've seen errors like that before on at least one of their other boxes, too.
