Well it does have the option of switching between 110 and 220 not that I would ever need that option. Still better than paying 75 to 90 bucks for a new used console. Trust me I looked for cheaper alternative power supplies the last 3 years and never found one that would work.
Are you craving for some more talk about retro gaming? In the latest episode of STR: Leathco, Scott aka Alex Jones and I talk about a myriad of gaming related topics. We discuss cool games that we are currently playing the upcoming Winter-Con 2012 and much much more. There is a conspiracy going on folks. One that will shake the very ground upon which you stand. Find out all about it in the latest episode of Stalking the Retro.
STR Episode 14: The Amish are Coming for Your Games!
Also a special shout out to The British IBM for giving permission to use one of their great new songs. The British IBM is an awesome new Indie band that is about to release their first album. I have listened to some of their demos and I have to say their music fucking rocks!

You can pre order their debut album now. It is scheduled to be released in July.
Latest pickups video. I found a Bandai Wonder swan for 9 bucks, a cool little Game Gear multi-cart and much much more!
Are there no copyright laws in Korea? Sheesh, pirate haven over there! Still, nice pick-ups man!

This episode seems a bit Sega centric but we also talk about a large plethora of other gaming and retro topics. So strap yourself in real tight and give Stalking the Retro a chance.

I also put up this video of some more Odyssey 2 games that Nurmix sold me. This brings my collection to 28 games. Thanks again Nurmix you rock! He also threw in some awesome freebies so check out the video.
Cool, glad you're pleased!
All but two of those boxed Odyssey2 games include the instructions, so your total collection is only missing a handful of items at this point.
And a few things about the Intellivision stuff... once you collect it for a while, you'll find there were a number of box variations. The ones with the nice white plastic cart tray were the original ones. The ones missing that, but that still open like a book came next, and then the thinner non-book style (which you don't have yet) just opened from the top. The instruction manuals were originally printed in 4-colors, then down to 2, then when INTV bought the rights from Mattel and re-released the games, they usually went with the black and white type like you have with Sub Hunt. They also began just putting white end labels on the carts. I'm not such a purest that I collect box and label variations, but I do have several examples of the different types.
For the most part, the Odyssey2 game boxes stayed the same (at least the ones from Magnavox/Philips) through their entire run.
Enjoy the games man! We must find you a VOICE for your Odyssey2 now!
...oh, and an Intellivision with Intellivoice and ECS computer add-on too!
