New Game Box Protectors: Aquarius, Micro vision, RCA Studio 2 and Odyssey 1

Recommended Posts

They have finally arrived and are ready to ship out. They are like the others I have been making for customers here with heavy duty plastic and locking tabs on both ends to keep the flaps securely in place. All are available on my website for purchase. I have pictures of the Aquarius and Microvision game box protectors posted. Will post Odyssey 1 and RCA Studio 2 protector pictures later. The RCA Studio 2 protectors will fit both the regular and slightly larger regular box as well. 

Website to order from

...all of them say Sold Out. That can't be right, can it?

Given the thickness of the Aquarius box, does anyone know if it will fit the new Maria game with it's extra wide box?

Thank you!  I've just placed an order for my first batch.  Very happy to finally see box protectors for the Aquarius!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't Aquarius games quite smaller than Intellivision games usually are? Thickness is one thing but height and width better match as well for a box protector to work. Exact dimensions probably would be required to determine what fits what.

Yes they are smaller than Intellivision boxes

Great question, hopefully someone will be able to answer.

The Aquarius box is a total different format. It's about half the size of an Intellivision box.

This is the closest thing I have found so far and I have one on order so I will post pics and let you all know how well it fits and works...

 

eBay Nintendo Game Boy Original Box Protector

 

I figured the perfect Maria box protector would measure 8 x 6 x 2 inches. The Game Boy one measures 9 1/8 x 6 7/8 x 2 3/16 so that's pretty close. Again, we'll see once it gets delivered to me.

If there is a box for Wii U Special Editions (European ones), this would fit almost perfectly.

@Starwander Are there plans for more Aquarius protectors? I mean hardware, larger boxes (Finform and logo sized).

I would love to make them however it depends on sales of these four box protectors. I do hope people buy some of the existing items however as sales have been very poor of the Aquarius game box protectors so far.

I’m personally buying about 20 tomorrow. Just hadn’t had the time to do it yet. Maybe post in the main protector topic? I thought there were a lot more people saying they’d buy some.

I finally had the chance to try my Aquarius box protectors, and both the look and the fit are absolutely perfect.  I certainly plan on ordering more, and I'll post some pictures in the next day or two.

 

Perhaps listing them on eBay would help to make more collectors aware of them?

Agreed on listing on eBay. That’s how I found out about RetroProtection actually. And, sorry to Starwander but still haven’t gotten around to buying protectors. Haven’t been working due to Coronavirus, and any spare money has been going towards other stuff. I’ll buy 20 within the next few weeks though.

Any chance for bulk discounts on those RCA Studio 2 boxes? I need 8-10!

Not at this time, thanks for asking though
