I wanted to share this in case anyone is interested.  Etsy seller ItsAllGeek3D has made available 3D printed couplers for the Atari 7800 controllers so you can play games like Robtron 2084 and T!ME Salvo.  You can order them here:  Atari 7800 Controller Coupling W/ Mounting Holes.  These are available in multiple colors if you want anything other than black.

I agree!  Ordered one as soon as I saw these!  Can't wait to get it so I can play T!ME Salvo and Robotron with the two joysticks!

Pretty cool.  Too bad he doesn't do one for the 5200 controllers since the dual controller holders seem to be hard to find any more.  I could use one for Space Dungeon.  I wonder if they could paint the Atari name and logo with a silver or chrome paint on that black?  That would be sweet!

Indeed it is!  I remember looking at the prototype for this at the Video Game Museum at the last CGE and wondering when would someone make these available.

Those are hard to find.  I have one, thankfully.  Perhaps you can contact the seller and ask.  After all, if they can 3D print these, they should be able to 3D print the 5200 version as well.
