ColecoVision Proto System in Purple Box - Insanely Rare


Recommended Posts

That is really Sweet!


My friend and I ordered our Colecos BITD when they first came out. He ordered his from a mail order Company and ended up getting it about a month before they were in stores, so I followed his lead...However they hit stores 2 days before I got mine. This was back when things inexplicably took "4-6 weeks" to be delivered. Upon comparing our systems, his controllers were different. They were like the ones in this auction. Unless I'm mistaken, if you look at the side of the fire buttons, they are smooth and not "ribbed" (for our pleasure haha)...

The thing about this purple box is that only people who worked for Coleco got them and their is no way to know just how many were produced before Coleco switched to the grey background box.


I have #162, an anonymous collector has one which i forget the # right now but think it's in the 200s and then there is this one up for auction. So after all these years, only 3 have surfaced..... much rarer than say Air Raid for the 2600 or Nintendo World Championships (both cart shell variations).
