The wizard giveaway

Here's Pick Axe Pete with the sticker.


So the commercial mentions that you'd get $82 worth of free games when you purchased an O2. Two games are shown, Quest for the Rings and PAP.


It makes sense. By '82 the Odyssey 2 was starting to wind down in America. My hunch is that the promotion was intended to get rid of as much older inventory as possible to make way for the few remaining titles in the future line-up.


It makes me wonder how many of these were specifically stickered for this promotion. I'll have to poke around eBay and see what I can find. I'd assume they'd all be in the lower right hand corner.

I think that would be a fair assumption.  I did some searching when I got it but I can’t really find much in the way of info for this promotion.  I’m assuming it must have been a mail away    

Just want to point out there’s another Pick Axe Pete on eBay.
