Two weeks ago I was in NYC to see my family and go back to my neighborhood in Manhattan and went to some of the retro gaming store and one them had a lot of old and very dusty Box 5200 games and found like 9 CIB 5200 games plus a Pac-Man game box with game and manual plus an other item that for the life of me don't remember but it has a paper sleeve for a cart inside Pacman (NOT FOR RESALE) version. Now it's been like forever and I did get a new 5200 box set with a Pacman packin but I don't know if this insert was there to start with plus the box feels like its too large to fit inside the box but if anyone has a full set of these let me know I trying to fine images online but no luck and all the books I have don't tell me any info on it. If online theres a online gallery that show everything whats inside all CIB set of games. Here's some photo on what I mean.

 

BTW I was trying to fine a 5200 controller and they dont have one for sale, 20 years and still cant fine one I don't care if its not working I know how to fix one and all. :(

Think someone on here is remaking them. You can make one yourself like two blocks of wood and put the two joysticks in the middle then use duct tape.
