These look real cool but DAMN it is bugging me that these old retro companies, I know they have very little to nothing to do with the original and are mostly just acquired brands / IP's but the fact they keep trying to use crowd funding just screams red flag to me.

I feel nobody asked for or wanted the titles on offer. They should have taken a poll or something offering titles unique to Colecovision or perhaps titles the original coleco had planned but never released. I have no doubt there are very specific reasons they are offering Robo-tech GBA port and Strawberry Shortcake 8bit title but nothing besides the mini cabinets says "COLECO" to me. Just comes off as another cash on marketed to the retro collector crowd because "NOSTALGIA" with zero understanding of what made the originals so cool. To that end I am mostly in agreement with THIS video.
