What the heck even is this? It looks like the Wico Command for the 5200. Was this for PC? The listing claims it comes with a flashback but it's not pictured. All that is here is a few images of controllers.

Does anyone know what this is? The controller looks like it has an inverse of the wico command. I can't find anything about it online. Seller sent pics of the adapter.

Edit: looks like it's a "909 Joystick" made by Winner or Magic. Most of the ones I'm seeing are all straight to male db15 but this box appears to have a db9 to db15 adapter. I'm sure this was in every crap store when it came out (MacFrugals anyone?) But I think it's interesting. I was never into PC gaming back when. Btw, this box is not part of the listing above. I found it elsewhere.

Well, that's absolutely ridiculous.  It should be pretty easy to get that auction shut down, as eBay requires that "presale" items be shipped within 30 days of purchase.

 

https://www.ebay.com/help/policies/listing-policies/presale-listings-policy?id=4252

 

And as of this writing, 84 people have already purchased this. 

 

What's weird about this is Gilligan's Island on DVD was released twice already on DVD (in 2005 and 2012, apparently), and you can buy it right now without having to wait until 2025.  I'd say they made a mistake with this auction, but looking at it they would have had to screw up not online the listing title, but also several places in the description where it's stated this is a PRE-ORDER and will not be shipped until 2025.  And not just 2025, but December 31, 2025. 

 

I looked through the seller's other auctions, and they have several more pre-orders, but most of them are more reasonable dates.  However, I did also find this one that has a pre-order date of 2025.  And another.

 

This is all a bit of a head scratcher.

Yeah, I am not sure about how this flies under the radar.  I have bought from this seller before (a lot, actually,) and they have always been good to me.  All said, I worry about this four year pre-order.

And the one he's selling is actually the 2012 release (the UPC is from the 2012 Canadian release of Season 3).

Maybe he actually has it in stock and doesn't realize his listing is showing it as a pre-order?  I can't imagine 84 people would pay for a 4 year pre-order...
