  1. Latest acquisition:  A boxed Colecovision!  It works just fine after a little cleanup, although one of the controllers has a non-functioning keypad.

      I had a Colecovision for a long time, but decided to sell it cheap to a friend who is having a very rough 2020.  Then a few months later...BOOM, this one kind of falls in my lap.

      Had a few Colecovisions over the years, I have an attachment to it as it was my first GOOD Christmas let's just say my uncle bought me a Colecovision with several games that year. Though it would be old tough hard times I acquired another in my teens again just to be pawned off during struggles. Happily I still own TWO consoles today along with a multicart and several accessories among my collection. Will always have a special place in my heart and head though, still to this day my favorite game on it is Mr. Do! and I just love certain games on it even if they are not considered the best versions on any platform. Not to mention some great arcade titles you rarely see elsewhere like FRENZY. Congrats on an awesome pick up!

      Here she is in action.  My only complaint -- they should have made the controller wires longer.
