My NEW sealed-in-box Jaguar System and my first pickups for the Console!

Recommended Posts

Got one of the Jaguar new in box systems online, both black and grey button controllers, a few games and some extras! I made sure to get Wolfenstein with the nice overlay as well and a Teamtap while they're still easy to find new in box as well. I plan on doing an 4K unboxing video of it soon!

Nice! But, were Jaguar consoles ever shrinkwrapped at retail? My system box that was purchased new at Lechmere has the price sticker directly on the cardboard.

They weren't, no. I'm sure someone will prove me wrong, but I can't think of any console that was shrinkwrapped.

This was sold by a reputable eBay seller who seems to have tons of these new in box ones and they seem sealed from the factory and even shipped in what might have been original shipping boxes it was so perfect. I paid like PS5 prices for this.

Mine definitely was not - bought in very early 1994 from Babbages.

That doesn't mean it was shrinked originally. Both of the sellers who deal in new Jag consoles have their own shrink wrap machines. Both myatari (B&C) and Best shrinkwrap these consoles. Yep, they're reputable dealers, but again that doesn't mean the consoles came like that 25 years ago. With all the cost cutting Atari did, I doubt they'd even spring for the 1 cent it'd cost to wrap these consoles when no other manufacturer was doing so. 

 

Anyhow, enjoy the Jag!

I spoke to B & C and he told me the Jaguars we shipped from Atari with no shrink wrap which is why the boxes on a lot of them are damaged.

Myself started with console plus IS1 plus Brutal sports and AvP. Remember to this day the initial happiness fireing up the system for the first time. Still enjoy it tremendiously.

I worked retail at a small video game chain in high school circa 94-95. These were not originally shrink wrapped when shipped from Atari. That doesn't mean the system isn't new, it was just shrink-wrapped by a reseller at some point. 

 

Anyway, hope you enjoy your Jaguar. Wolfenstein 3D is a great game on the system!

Very nice.  Maybe the seller shrink wrapped these to protect the box and the system.

Yep, that's already been mentioned. B&C and Best shrink wrap their systems.

I was kinda curious what you paid, wow.  But welcome to the Jaguar club! :)
