Did anyone else have the somewhat round, yellow Pac Man?? It was pretty decent!

Sure do!!!! CIB TomyTronic Pac-Man handheld............. tomytronic_pacman_2_full.jpg

 

that same year (Christmas 1980) I actually asked for the Entex Pac Man 2 handheld......I remember going to K-Mart with my mom and asking them for it (since I had seen it there for sale before-hand) and the employee talking her that they were recalled due to a licensing issue over the "Pac Man" name. So I ended up with the Tomy version instead. UNTIL 1998 and I bought one off of eBay complete but with no box!

 

 

Posted a high score on the emulation version of the TonyTronic Pac Man here........    http://highscore.com/scores/DedicatedHandheldEmulated/TomyTronicPacMan/8066

I have a pacman but the battery box is rusted out :( When I worked at MGA we ripped off the concept with our Classic Arcade assortment...It didn't do so well but now I see other vendors with their versions...sucks to be ahead of the curve!

 

I dug out my TomyTronic Pac-Man handheld from the barn the other day. (pic below)

And got some nice high scores on the first try of both the AMA setting and the PRO setting:

I even found a response letter from Tomy about when I inquired about an AC Adapter for the handheld Pac-Man too!

 

Then I pulled out my create of handhelds......... I have all 6 of your MGA Classic Arcades marigul! (see pic below) I love those games!!
