Not a trade....chas10e sent me all this gold at no charge!  WOW.  I can't thank you enough. 

 

The bowling game is what started this.  It needs a new battery we think.  I'll figure it out.

 

The Atari 8-bit books are just 100% pure treasure to me.  The 8-bit computers are my favorite retro system.  These babies are going to have a nice home here.  The catalog on the lower left is particularly fascinating -- it has a bunch of the computers that were planned but never produced.  Atari 1450XLD anyone? 

 

Thanks again. \o/

the bowling thing used to come-on pressing button through the package ... but it was sealed & I can't bring myself to open a sealed game :P .... so you gatta open it , fix batteries & re-seal it so it looks like it never been opened  ... I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

 

all the 8-bit stuff books I rescued from recycling place and knew they would thoroughly be enjoyed. ... opening a book isn't something I do much of either

Don't tell Jmjustin I'm opting up that sealed bowling game. But honestly...how else can I fix it and play with it? Spare me any guilt-trips :)

I will admit that when i heard "opening a sealed game" a chill did run past me, but hey if you can get it working and actually play it have at it.

 

You are a stronger person than me opening the packaging. Hell i recently bought a sealed VHS tape and i had to open it to watch it and i still hate myself for doing it!!

So part of this was a trade, part of it was cash, and part of it was just plain ol generosity from none other than RickR! I just have to thank him again for sending me, for the cost of shipping alone, a functioning Atari 5200 with a copy of Pac Man! We did a trade for the two controllers (also generous as eBay has shown me they go for quite a bit!), and I have been thoroughly enjoying this system! Once you get used to the controllers its pretty fun, although admittedly some games are easier to control than others.

 

I just thought I would post my entire collection in a pic, but for details on how I scored the other carts see http://forums.atari.io/index.php/topic/2999-so-i-bought-a-bunch-of-5200-games/

Are they Ricks special reconditioned controllers with the aluminum foil?

:atari_5200:  I could totally see that console being made a "Mad Max edition" ... of course you might need someone to develop a home-brew with that theme as well ;)

It does indeed.  And it works well.  I used that rig for testing controllers, and was always amazed with the perfect video quality. 

I'm just happy it's gone to a good home.  And thank you for being a good sport about the slow shipping.  We ended up using USPS Parcel Select, and it took forever.  But that was the lowest price option.

Thanks RickR for the great trade!   (Super Mario World we got from Goodwill)

Always a pleasure to trade with you.

 

In return, I got a Intellivision system changer (2600 adapter), "Final Approach" for 2600, and a big giant STACK of PSP games and movies.  And also a broken 2600 Vader that needs repair.  Sorry for the lack of pictures....I'll get a few shots once I get the INTV 2 out for testing.

 

THANKS!.
