Atari I/O Retro Junk Box 10 - It's all about the junk

Recommended Posts

YES!  I knew Justin liked Pong, so I added one from my personal collection just for you!  I love it when a plan comes together.  :mr_t:

 

 

Next question any kmow what ac plug goes with this pong? My 2600 plug doesnt fit

 

If you have a universal adapter (that's what I used), it's the one smaller than the 2600 plug.  I think they call it a 1/8". 

 

I'm so glad you found some good junk to keep.

Really wanted to join this box as the last one was awesome. But I'm severely lacking in stuff for the box. Hopefully next box! Cool stuff for the 1st stop!

You are always welcome to join.  I think we've set the timeline to have a junk box (or secret santa) once per quarter.  So start saving your junk!

Ok so the junk box has come and this is what i took out. I tried my hardest fit everything back in, but i just couldnt get darth vader, the transformer, and the emoji cat back in there

 

Other than that. I cant wait to try this pong out! The book is filled with various Nintendo posters

Very good picks! Can't want to come my way!

Junk!  Juuunk!  Juuuuunk!

What'd I take?

  • Space Dungeon, for the 5200.  A very nice upgrade to what I had, which was looking a little worn.
  • Riddle of the Sphinx, for the 2600.  A *big* upgrade to the copy in my collection, which was far more faded than I'd realized.
  • Compute!'s First Book of Atari, from 1981 -- gonna have to try typing up some of the included programs on my 1200XL sometime!
  • Alphabet Zoo (Spinnaker) for the Atari 8-bit line -- I'm not going to start collecting 8-bit carts, I'm not going to start collecting 8-bit carts, I'm not going to...
  • A CX-40 Atari joystick, in excellent condition. 
  • A new cassette tape!  I honestly took this for the case -- I needed one for a loose Starpath cassette I have.  But now I can record you a mixtape, too.
  • Time Lord (NES) -- well, I wasn't gonna take this initially, but it was the one thing that wouldn't make it back in the box.  Hmm, maybe I'll start the next RJB...
  • Koopa shell McDonalds friction motor toy.  Came in the original plastic; I opened it so the cats could chase after it.  :lol:
  • The Big Book of Hell -- as a huge early Simpsons fan (man, isn't it a shame that it ended after 9 seasons? ;)) I've never read any of Groening's earlier comic work.  That changes now.
  • Activision TV Games plug-and-play from Toymax -- one of the first "modern" P&P devices (2001?). I'm curious to see how the 10 games compare to the originals!

Onto the next!

I believe it is one of the first. If memory serves, Jakks Pacific absorbed Toymax and used their plug n play to jump-start their TV Games line of PNPs, which lea to the popularity of PNPs in general. Also, I think the Toymax PNP is basically the same as Jakks Activision PNP, except for the controller used:

My update on what I took out of the junk box:

Star Trek for atar 5200, I played the coIecovision version, really good game

Pit stop for colecovision, I've never played this one, so hopefully a good one!

Frogger handheld game, I love handhelds so picking this one up was a no brainer.

Various Atari 5200 and 2600 manuals, I don't boxes for these, but it's always nice to have the manuals for them.

Finally, whoever put these in, many thanks, this tmnt action figure and book, as always a ninja turtles fan, so the more the merrier.

Wrapping this up as soon as I have an address for the next one in line will be out the door, hopefully this Monday

I'm throwing some good stuff into the box, was hoping to throw a console here, simply won't fit, guess next time, very happy with the junk box so far! ????
