  1. Wow, nice collection! ... I saw the title of the thread & thought it was for the Intellivision not noticing it was in the Atari 7800 boards. It took me a few sittings to watch all the video. Member @Video 61 I think is still pretty active here and most certainly could give you insight on that monitor cart. I've never seen it before & seems pretty cool. I do have a 2600 diagnostic cart in my stash I hadn't geeked-out on in awhile. lotsa cool information in your video. Thanks
  2. I dunno any specifics of the manufacturing design. I think it is basically just a carrying case as many other consoles have. was Wii Sports the pack-in game for the system? This was the 2'nd one I had purchased while out "thrifting", the first one I gifted to one of my nephews as he is a bowling-nut. When I discovered @RickR was hosting another RJB it was the first thing I thought of to see if it'd fit. I didn't know what those muscle guys were but while in my possession before they went back into the box, I did set them up like bowling pins & shot "little-weeji" out of the cann
  3. I opened up the RJB while @Atari Creep was here and we discovered Diana was punched BUT the hanging tab was in the box so I un-punched her :) Diana was a little to chubby to make it back into the RJB @RickR I would gladly pass Diana on to you in her un-punched condition if she has fellow officers she would like to be with.
  4. stuff I put in , last moment 7800 cart added, I knew @RickR would geek-out on the Bowling bag & Combat Manuals (3 different revisions)
  5. Yep thems iz pinballs, they have quite a few plays on them 1,147 roughly , I am the guilty one that placed them in there if you hadn't guessed already, now you ust need a whole machine to go with it 😉
  6. Great pic of some great picks ! I only had to repack the box once and that was for the photo-shoot of what I put in. although I did have a practice box before @Atari Creep showed up. I did require for him to have the box sealed specifically for the "mental anguish" aspect of the exercise. we also had a great laugh on the phone about what you find on the floor AFTER you seal the box. How many time did you pack & repack the box ? What numbers are the @nosweargamer 's card packs ? I almost passed on the one I grabbed not being any kind of sports fan. but opened it up and had other
  7. Sent the box out this morning and it is still in great shape your diligence is Paying off @RickR Yeah that was fun ! Combat , Air-Sea Battle, Suuround, co-op Space Invaders
  8. Got the hand-off from @Atari Creep , unpacked & reloaded The stuff I took out: INTV Demon Attack INTV Donkey Kong w/manual Atari 7800 manuals for Robotron, Ms. Pac-man & Centipede Arcade Classic Defender cab w/ manual TMNT tiki-mug Genisis homebrews Spatterhouse 1&2 ? & Splatterhouse 3 GBA DK Country 2 Frogger PnP Atari Blast HDMI PnP & a little love note from @Atari Creep .... (we can figger something out for the box ) a "Creep it Real" button .... (better than a sticker 'cause I'll wear it :) ) a
  9. Fortunately I can "read typo" and one rules I have is to never let a good typo go to waist 😉
  10. Awesome ! I love the "Creep it Real" sticker. I should have this tomorrow afternoon,(Saturday) Sunday I have a "birthday dinner" for one of my nephews but should beable to get it out Monday to @socrates63 The way that box looks it might be tough to stuff what I have ..but that's the way it ALWAYS is !!!!
  11. hmmmm, at first glance I thought my 7800 had a shutter door on the console but it doesn't. I then determined the pokey-stabbers are to prevent an attempt to insert the carts upside down and damage the PCB.
  12. Heh, That ole' thing ? yeah sales kiosk demonstrator unit I'm looking for the original boards & a placard for the control panel on the cheap 😉 All my other carts are "Atari Corp." or "Atari Corporation" I forget the story of the release of the 7800, I think it was officially released in 1986 and the '84 release was being test marketed or something.
  13. Interesting , I never thunk of what the "launch titles" were. Another feature these have is under the label there are no holes aligned with the pokey-stabbers that open the shutter door on the consoles cart-slot I do have cib launch titles for the 2600 😉
  14. I was chit'n-chattin' with @HDN about 7800 carts with the dust cover / or "shutter doors" as I call them and about where you personally acquired variouse items. My 1984 Pole Position I think was my original cart from BITD , It also features the spring loaded shutter door that Atari 2600 carts had but a wider slot for the 7800 PCB I have 7 of these things now as I would specificall seek them out for awhile and figgered I snap a quick pic. The machine under it is a friends that I got mechanically going for them, a Gottlieb Wild Life feel free to share your eyecandy & sto
  15. 9580 Was the first game I played tonight, subsequent games yielded lower scores.
  16. 😇 https://www.wikihow.com/Secretly-Open-a-Sealed-Envelope 😇
  17. I don't think "the line" actually formed yet , we're all just milling about .... I think I still need to shoot you a text or a call or something. Some Pinball kinda happening in Everette Ma. Covid restrictions there makes it less fun but glad stuff is happening anyways. How far you from Dover NH ?
  18. This stuff works pretty good: https://www.scotchbrand.com/3M/en_US/scotch-brand/products/catalog/~/Scotch-Reinforced-Strength-Shipping-Strapping-Tape/?N=4335+3294529207+3294580311&rt=rud In the image you're NOT supposed to reveal any of the contents of the box !!!! ... also I dunno what free weights have to do with retro gaming, you can mash buttons pretty good with "buggy-whip arms"
  19. Glad you got 'em all ! I didn't know "GORF" was an acronym and glad your dad has a recollection of it from BITD. I don't know what the story is with the tape on Food Fight so I guess one will have to be made-up. I'm thinking something along the line of keeping the food fresh, perhaps it''l have its own thread 😉
  20. I guess I missed the initial announcement , I guess the name change FROM "Retro junk box" may have been a factor .... I would participate as I have in the past and hopefully another "bump" will gin-up some more interest
  21. looks at some youtube videos, see if there is something missing like a ribbon cable ect. do some voltage checks here & there http://www.intvfunhouse.com/faq/intv_faq7.php suggests trouble with a power circuit Soldering does take a lot of practice but the biggest thing is to have good equipment .. well one of the things anyways Practice on what I call "cadavers" stuff you don't really care about. My early work is just terrible. now I'm confident on pinball circuit boards (I haven't got to the surface mount stuff yet so that still scares me) The equipment I got I
  22. When I was 8 or 9 there was no Internet.
  23. I busted out laughing at "Lets go balls to the walls" the Pong battery eliminators output 6V DC .... a single battery is 1.5V time four = 6V you Atari adapter may damage it as you suspect great find and thanks for sharing a good couple games ... that last one was close !!!!
  24. That's the beauty of the Squad Challenges. you start off kinda ~meh~ then you improve develop a few tricks & share with the group. PPii does have a brake that can be useful 😉 it was also the pack-in game that came with the 7800 system so your experience will be like "back-in-the-day" Congrats I do have a dupe "Food Fight" some clear tape on the label that make it look a bit rough, shoot me a PM if interested
