RJB10 arrived Saturday to my PO, but I couldn't pick it up before it closed. Just went to get it during my lunch break today. Will open it tonight after work -- can't wait!

Junk!  Juuunk!  Juuuuunk!

 

36987577946_a3b15c2b5b_c.jpg

 

What'd I take?

  • Space Dungeon, for the 5200.  A very nice upgrade to what I had, which was looking a little worn.
  • Riddle of the Sphinx, for the 2600.  A *big* upgrade to the copy in my collection, which was far more faded than I'd realized.
  • Compute!'s First Book of Atari, from 1981 -- gonna have to try typing up some of the included programs on my 1200XL sometime!
  • Alphabet Zoo (Spinnaker) for the Atari 8-bit line -- I'm not going to start collecting 8-bit carts, I'm not going to start collecting 8-bit carts, I'm not going to...
  • A CX-40 Atari joystick, in excellent condition. 
  • A new cassette tape!  I honestly took this for the case -- I needed one for a loose Starpath cassette I have.  But now I can record you a mixtape, too.
  • Time Lord (NES) -- well, I wasn't gonna take this initially, but it was the one thing that wouldn't make it back in the box.  Hmm, maybe I'll start the next RJB...
  • Koopa shell McDonalds friction motor toy.  Came in the original plastic; I opened it so the cats could chase after it.  :lol:
  • The Big Book of Hell -- as a huge early Simpsons fan (man, isn't it a shame that it ended after 9 seasons? ;)) I've never read any of Groening's earlier comic work.  That changes now.
  • Activision TV Games plug-and-play from Toymax -- one of the first "modern" P&P devices (2001?). I'm curious to see how the 10 games compare to the originals!

Onto the next!

Sweet stuff.  My goal of getting someone else hooked on 8-bit carts was a success!

I believe it is one of the first. If memory serves, Jakks Pacific absorbed Toymax and used their plug n play to jump-start their TV Games line of PNPs, which lea to the popularity of PNPs in general. Also, I think the Toymax PNP is basically the same as Jakks Activision PNP, except for the controller used:

I can confirm they are identical.  I had 'em both and "eeny-meeny-miny-moe'd" which one to put in the box.

Looks like the box is heading for NYC! Have a few things to add from my personal collection which will make someone happy 😊 was hoping to throw in a console, but don't know if there will be space, but I'll definitely try!

My update on what I took out of the junk box:
Star Trek for atar 5200, I played the coIecovision version, really good game
Pit stop for colecovision, I've never played this one, so hopefully a good one!
Frogger handheld game, I love handhelds so picking this one up was a no brainer.
Various Atari 5200 and 2600 manuals, I don't boxes for these, but it's always nice to have the manuals for them.
Finally, whoever put these in, many thanks, this tmnt action figure and book, as always a ninja turtles fan, so the more the merrier.
Wrapping this up as soon as I have an address for the next one in line will be out the door, hopefully this Monday
I'm throwing some good stuff into the box, was hoping to throw a console here, simply won't fit, guess next time, very happy with the junk box so far! 😎
