I remember those, but have never owned one.  I think they are totally awesome!  If they make new ones, I'll be all over that.

I have a meager collection of the old Mattel Electronics handheld games.  Basketball, baseball, football, etc.

They re-made the Mattel games a few years back, and I must say, they were excellent.  They added a volume slider, which was a huge improvement.  Still, I like my originals much better.

Me too. $60 would seem a bit steep to me. Can get a nice original for the same or less.

To be sure. I used to play those when I was a kid, too. They were fun. Ah, the good old days… :)

Sure do!!!! CIB TomyTronic Pac-Man handheld............. tomytronic_pacman_2_full.jpg

 

that same year (Christmas 1980) I actually asked for the Entex Pac Man 2 handheld......I remember going to K-Mart with my mom and asking them for it (since I had seen it there for sale before-hand) and the employee talking her that they were recalled due to a licensing issue over the "Pac Man" name. So I ended up with the Tomy version instead. UNTIL 1998 and I bought one off of eBay complete but with no box!

 

 

Posted a high score on the emulation version of the TonyTronic Pac Man here........    http://highscore.com...onicPacMan/8066

I had a Pac Man & would love to reacquire one. A Ms. Pac Man would be nice too. I can't wait for the new ones!
