Thrift Store Finds

Craigslist find.  An Atari 800 bundle.  Ballblazer CIB!  I'm quite happy about that.  There's also a game that I'd never heard of....Deflektor.  Internet research shows it was some kind of unreleased prototype.  I wonder if it's real or some kind of reproduction?

 

Also an Aquarius bundle.

Post and discuss cool retro items you find in the wild.

 

Today I found these laser disks (Pioneer) for $2 each.   I don't have a player, and I hear they are pretty finicky anyways...but I couldn't resist.  Also a couple of Playstation AV cables for $0.50 each. 

 

I have a LD player.  It was non-working when I got it but I cleaned it up and it started playing like a champ.  Those LD titles you have I bet are better compared to their VHS cousins.  Some of these can be in a Letterbox (or widescreen) edition before widescreen TVs became available.  I like it but then again I like CEDs, Beta, and VHS, too.

Your copy of Deflektor probably came from Video 61.  You might contact him to confirm it.  I know he has other prototype 8-bit programs that he has released on cartridge including Jr. Pac-Man and its label is similar in design to your Deflektor (name on white background above artwork).

Scroll down to the D's and you will see it spelled "Deflector" for $29.95.  So, I would say that your Atari outfit had a program cart that Video 61 released.  I hope that this helps.

That is helpful, thanks.  On that page, he lists Deflektor as 64k.  The one I have does work on the 48k 800.  But that probably has no meaning.  I'll ask him.  Thanks again.

Goodwill find.  Never pass up Atari carts for 99 cents.

is that a label variation of Defender? its missing the "use the joystick controllers" line.........

Interesting....taking a closer look at the cart...its also open ended.   It doesn't have the little plastic block on the pins.   It looks like it was made that way.   

I'll let the opening bid be .....say.....one MILLION DOLLARS!?

Wow.  I figured only sheep shopped there. 

Now why would sheep need Wool? ;)

 

Today's trip to Goodwill and Rowsdowers pro-tip of the day....always check the DVD section.   Props to the Mrs. for spotting these!

Not a thrift pickup,  but another trade:
