NSG traded me back the Xonox double-ender that I traded to him a while back (thanks for hanging onto it!)... plus a STACK of 2600/7800 manuals.  :thumb:

So part of this was a trade, part of it was cash, and part of it was just plain ol generosity from none other than RickR! I just have to thank him again for sending me, for the cost of shipping alone, a functioning Atari 5200 with a copy of Pac Man! We did a trade for the two controllers (also generous as eBay has shown me they go for quite a bit!), and I have been thoroughly enjoying this system! Once you get used to the controllers its pretty fun, although admittedly some games are easier to control than others.

 

I just thought I would post my entire collection in a pic, but for details on how I scored the other carts see http://forums.atari....-of-5200-games/

Are they Ricks special reconditioned controllers with the aluminum foil?

:atari_5200:  I could totally see that console being made a "Mad Max edition" ... of course you might need someone to develop a home-brew with that theme as well ;)

It does indeed.  And it works well.  I used that rig for testing controllers, and was always amazed with the perfect video quality. 

I'm just happy it's gone to a good home.  And thank you for being a good sport about the slow shipping.  We ended up using USPS Parcel Select, and it took forever.  But that was the lowest price option.
