ColecoVision Console Box Protectors-Interest Thread

Recommended Posts

Purpose of Thread

I previously made the Odyssey 2 console box protectors when I ran Mortoff Games and I have seen these is some interest in box protectors for the ColecoVision console. I wanted to see if there was enough interest to justify making a batch. They would be the same type I made for the other console with the extra thick plastic to provide sturdy protection and locking tabs on the flaps so they stay in place.

 

FAQ

1) How much would they cost? $29.99 + exact shipping costs

2) How many pre-orders do you need? Looking for 25-50

3) Would you ship internationally? Yes

4) Do we have to pay up front? No

5) How do I sign up? Post in this thread and I will contact you for your details.

Will these provide UV protection?

 

Would be good to see some images of the Odyssey 2 console box protector by way of an example.

I assume they help with uv, but william would have to verify for sure.

I can say the odyssey 2 ones were nice quality and good fit and i would be ecstatic to have my childhood christmas colecovision box protected finally in 1 of these! :)

Added pictures of the Odyssey 2 box protectors. I will check on the UV protection component.

I as well hope they have some uv protection. I think any layer gives some amount but that aside i love they stop the shelf wear, and cut down on moisture and possibility of insects climbing aboard. And just give the console box a firmer and sturdier feel. Stops punctures and scraps and holds all of the box together in its shape to cut down on bowing etc too. :)

I'd be in for three of those Colecovision system box protectors.

 

I should buy some of the Odyssey ones if there are any left.

I talked with the factory. It isn't possible to provide total UV protection with a clear sleeve which I thought was very interesting. I have seen these advertised before by other sellers on occasion and discussed it with them and they made it quite clear a clear plastic color cannot offer 100% UV protection. They said to provide UV protection it would need to colored plastic and have an additive. The price would increase about 8 fold. As such this is not something I will be offering as I don't think people will want to pay that much and I personally would not want colored plastic sleeves. I assume that you won't be wanting those two then?

I will buy two. Anyone knows if NTSC and PAL box have same dimensions? Also, protector box for expansions modules would be nice :)

That I do not know if they are the same size. Maybe some one can chime in about this? If these work out I would definitely explore protectors for the expansions modules.

Ok, it does not really matter personally since the ones I wish to protect is North American.

 

Great regarding expansion modules, I will keep my fingers crossed :)
