I would like to do Junk Box V: The Retro Strikes Back after this one if I may?  I have some really good stuff to start off another box I was going to do for another website but already have done a couple for them and would like to do one for Atari.IO as a thank you for welcoming me to this community :)

Thank YOU for stepping up the to plate!  Very cool and totally in the Atari.io spirit.

notice where NSG put himeself, right after me :)   He knows the joys of a Willie! participated junkbox :) which works out good cause I have something special for him :) I know he will get.

 

Even though I have gotten some amazing items from you, I've never followed you in a Junk Box list, and since my move puts me close to you, I figured this would be the perfect time!

I will totally vouch for Willie doing the next junk box!!! He always has the coolest stuff.

Awesome, thank you Willie!

After Retropalooza, I'd like to host another one too.   So maybe I can take the reigns on Retro Junk Box VI:  Return of the Junk

"The Willie Strikes Back"
"Return of the Junk"

These names don't sound age appropriate.  :Nolan_Bushnell:

Just a few friendly reminders for those on the list:

  • Feel free to add art and/or stickers to the outside of the box!
  • Please insure the box for $50, which is free with Priority Mail shipping, in case somethings happens during transit so there are funds to create and ship out a replacement.
  • Reuse the box as often as possible!
  • Only share pics/videos of what you took out of the box until it runs its full course
  • Enjoy!

Everyone:  Junk Box 4 has arrived.  Shipped early due to NSG's move.  I'm going to hold off for a few extra days to see if #3 makes it back here in the meantime.  I hope no one minds the short delay.  If so, please let me know, and I will get #4 out the door.  Thanks.

Well, I decided I just couldn't wait.  The Junk Box has been re-filled and will be sent out to the next lucky recipient on Monday.

 

Before I show you what I took out, I want to commend nosweargamer on a box-well-done.  This thing was really heavy and full to the brim with high quality junk.  I did my best to follow up with a super-full box of nice stuff.

 

I took a Marvel mug and a comic book for my son.  The mug is really nice, and even came in a box.

Next, I took a couple of NES games, a 7800 poster/catalog, and a Jaguar game with a sexy bald lady on the sticker.  I do not own a Jaguar, but now I have an excuse to get one.

Three boxed 2600 games!  WOW!  These are really cool.  I will proudly put these on my boxed game shelf.

And this final item was really unexpected and cool.  With you all as my witness, I will treat this as a library item.  Meaning once I'm done reading it, I'll put into whatever junk box is in circulation for someone else to enjoy.  So this is just a "borrow".

Thank you NSG, and I'll get this thing shipped right away.

Junk box 4 got mailed this morning! We now have two junk boxes in circulation at the same time!

Eventually, #4 will make it to the all-new gluten-free nosweargamer manor.
