The Jorbus Collection

Recommended Posts

I'm proud to share my modest little collection with you all. Starting with the Fairchild VES and games I recently acquired. (Yes I am aware the dust cover is on upside down in the 1st photo)

More Atari (and related) stuff from my collection:

 

2600 Defender & Swordquest: Earthworld with the manuals and comics. Swordquest is in an EA SNES clamshell (?). I always wonder how these things happen.

This one takes some explaining (shameless plug alert)...on the left is a 4" lathecut record that my band (Deschtuco) released a few years ago. The song is a short tune called Phoenix, next to the 2600 cart of Phoenix and some Atari stickers for scale.

And an original 1981 Aladdin brand Pac-Man lunchbox with thermos bottle.

Picked up some dedicated consoles this week.

Sears Tele-games Pinball Breakaway

large.20201108_075826.jpg.f973b5015325020d824bb94c56283307.jpg

 

Radio Shack Electronic TV Scoreboard with the (beat) box and the gun.

large.20201112_232632.jpg.2aad530433f268a129478f9c474b268f.jpg

 

Also picked up a grip of NES carts. When I found my NES in storage my games and controllers were nowhere to be found. I still need to replace a few but this is most of my collection from my childhood.

Haven't posted in awhile. Thought I'd update the pics of the collection. I've added considerably to my 2600 collection lately

Is the top item the same as Atari Video Pinball? I have the Atari one and it looks damned near identical.
