Famiclone?

Recommended Posts

I think I saw one of these in a YouTube video talking about bootlegs, but I've never seen one on eBay. Still wouldn't buy it. They literally just took a remote controlled car gutted it and put a Famicom in it. Sounds cool, but it would probably overheat and melt the car.

Nice that it has composite as standard. I do want to grab a real Famicom at some point... most of my Famicom games work just fine in my NES with an adapter but Twinbee 3 (which uses a special memory chip) crashes a lot, but works fine in my Power Joy Famiclone.

If this was a Dendy from the Russian/Eastern European market, why are the ports labeled in English? I would expect Cyrillic lettering. 

 

Is anyone else reminded of those 1990s VHS tape rewinders that had shells molded to look like sports cars?

Dendy was merely relabelling Korean-made stuff.

Even many Soviet products meant for export were labeled in english or english and cyrillic.

Yes, all the images of regular Dendy Famiclones I can find, have all the labels and text in English. Feel free to point me towards a picture of one with Cyrllic text.

That's an old Famiclone, I believe there's pictures of a red one on |tsr's Nes Archive even, and the headlights light up when the thing is powered on.

It doesn't help that 90% of the Dendy you find are "modern" ones. Finding the actual Dendy Steepler ones is though.

What's different you may ask? Original Steepler Dendy famiclones (and other famicolnes of the era) have NES PPU clones inside and have a very close motherboard, no NOAC stuff. Also, early steepler Dendy ones have SECAM RF output, current clones only have PAL RF or no RF output.
