Atari I/O Retro Junk Box 2!


Recommended Posts

Ok, I now y'all have been waiting. At some point this weekend I plan to make a video and push out the box on Monday.

Sweet! I'm next!

Karateka is a fantastic game, slightly better on the 8-bit home computers (C64/Atari 800/Apple II), but really only because it's harder to play with a 7800 pro-line controller. If you have the Europad, it may play better, but still a great 7800 game! The Jag demo disc is of the unreleased Jag game Native, and is incredible looking. Only one level and no sound, but I've never even gotten to the end of the one level. Awesome demo though.  You will need a bypass cart from B&C, Protector SE game with bypass built in, or Reboot's down-loadable CD bypass option on CD to play that Jag demo. Cabbage Patch Kids is a Colecovison cart I have too, I have about a half dozen, but still no system myself either. I do have the CV flashback, but no CPK on it. I'm also interested in a Smurfs CV game cart I have, again, not on the flashback.

 

It's very interesting to see some of the stuff people include, and I am looking forward to get in on the next round! I've got some cool vintage game/computer mags I can throw in along with other goodies. I was also a huge fan of 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books when I was young, I read about the first 100-150 then sort of out-grew them (at least I thought I did at the time), but they made hundreds more after my day, so it would be interesting to see what I missed. Great haul!

FYI- For those keeping track at home, the box weighed around 11 pounds when it left No Swear Manor!

If the post office is accurate, it will arrive at the next destination tomorrow.

I just noticed I'm already over 100 posts, this one is 109...man I can't believe I post as much as I do, actually. Just goes to show the total lack of a life I have since moving. Guess it's time to get a life. :nintendo_mario_freezie:

The box made it safely to Louisiana!! Wow......the stuff that is packed in this is insane! So much in the box - all I can say is, ya'll must be good at Tetris! to get everything to fit in there like that without much room to spare!

 

I took pics of the outside of the box (in great shape) and the inside (before pulling everything out), and pics of everything that was in there. Now I just need to figure out what I'm keeping and putting in to send to Row.

I had the box all packed up tightly...and then I made my videos which meant unpacking the box again.

Except I forgot exactly how I fit everything in. :unsure:

Needless to say, repacking it seemed to take me an extra 10-15 minutes.

One time I finally had everything fitting again.....and then I saw an extra game laying on my table. :mellow:

 

Anyway, I really looking forward to seeing what you take out  :D

When I first packed it to leave, I used a large priority shipping box instead of a flat rate box to figure out what I was going to send out.

 

Needless to say some of the things I took pics of didn't make in the flat rate. ;)

You dont have to take pics of everything that was in there if you don't want to, just make sure to snap what you put in and take out. :)
