No but thats not saying anything. Our Target never has cool shit like this. How much was it? Honestly I am not too excited about anything in it but that box is cool. lol

I've not seen that but I have the same issue Creep mentions.  The Targets here hardly ever bring stuff like this.  Where in the store did they have it?

I have not yet seen this item yet, but my local Targets do have a retro gaming section in electronics.  They did recently get the Atari 2600 console and joystick keychains.  I'll keep my eye out for this

It's $30 and it seems kind of steep for the itwms included.

That is kind of steep.  You know what that means....wait for it to go on clearance sale!

I just scored an Intellivision mug and a Nintendo keychain on clearance at Target.

I thought the Legend of Zelda loot box was a much better deal and it was also priced at $30. Had some really cool stuff in it

I have not seen it and we don't have a local Target.  Our Wal-Mart, however, does have something similar based on the original Super Mario Bros.  Like others have said, for what you get the prices seem steep.  They could have put in a random used 2600 game LOL.

$50 gets you a sticker set, collectable pins, keychain, bottle opener and a little bag?

OUCH! Bit much for me anyway. Wait for it to go on clearance like RickR said. But that is if my store even gets them in. lol

I've seen some nice Atari things at Target recently. Especially their vintage tees. They had an entire rack of different Atari-themed tees, they weren't all one design and the quality had surpassed the "Atari Entertainment Technologies" one that's been around for a while. There was a Centipede one, a Missile Command one, Asteroids, a few others I believe, and some general "Atari" shirts that all looked like they were from 1981. One of them had different game patches on the tee that were absolutely inspired by some of the originals. I took pictures on my phone but I can't find them at the moment, I'll have to look again later.

 

Point being I'm grateful for what we get and I try to enjoy the good times, it still amazes me that there's any mass market for anything Atari out there, I spent so many years thinking I was the only one left on earth who even remembered what Atari was. I've dated girls before who thought Atari was a clothing brand. And while I appreciate someone somewhere out there placing a bit of thought into an Atari loot box, there's not much in there and it's too expensive for what you get. Believe me, I've put thought into doing an "Atari loot box" for us and what gifts it would include. I wouldn't have wanted to send something out to you guys that was as anemic as what they appear to be selling.

Just a thought...that box was/is an Atari licensed product, correct? Atari is supposed to be making a new VCS console, correct? It might be this box is made to bring more revenue in for the VCS production. I would still like to see that console work.
