Box protectors for Cote Gamers Big Box found

Recommended Posts

I have several of Cote Gamers' Big Box games (7 I think) and wanted to find box protectors for them. 

The box protector for GameCube Four Swords NTSC works really well. There is zero to maybe 3mm of space on any side.

They are pricey, though, at $3.50 a piece. Can't seem to buy them in large discount packs like the more common 2600/7800/colecovision and intellivision ones.

Good to know! 👍 Thanks. I always wondered about what would possibly fit those. Got any pics? I'd love to see how the extra space is with a game inside.

 

BTW, I see they're also available from Retroprotection, & slightly cheaper too. That's usually where I get all my box protectors from. :)

On a different, but somewhat related note - wish I could just find one for their small box Intellivision game, Maria. 😬 Atari Lynx box protectors are pretty close, but no cigar.. too small vertically, unfortunately. They work perfect with Der Luchs Vectrex games though. Non-standard box sizes are a real PITA sometimes. 😜

That's the same place, only on eBay. I guess they add 25 cents for the eBay man. I try to get pics today.

Here are some photos. The little extra thickness space was actually nice since the Bomb N Blast 2 box was bulging a bit from the contents inside and fit just right. Also, I just asked the guy about if there could be a discount for a pack of 10. Haven't heard back.

 

I also have an Intellivision big box game from Cote Gamers (Fantasy Puzzle) and it fits exactly/snuggly in the vertical direction.

The only thing I don’t like is that they seem to hide the dimensions. Can someone provide the dimensions on this box protector?

19.7 x 14.3 x 4.7 cm

 

Also, I asked him about a discount on 10 packs and he said he can’t afford it and may have to raise the price as they’ve been the same price for 5 years. :shrug:
