    Feel free to comment and correct me lol, I was pretty hyper / excited so I am sure I made mistakes!

Check out this fun video and comment, let me know if you currently have, have ever had or plan to have any version of this console classic!

    It's on my channel but it was just a few dusty carts in a box I gave away, I use my Harmony cart for the majority of my 2600 games now. Though I just hit 375 videos with over 2700 subscribers I am sure I have posted something Classic Gaming or Computer related you might like.

    Vaders are awfully sexy. Congrats on adding one to your collection! My preferred 2600 solution is a Gemini, but the Vader is definitely stylish.

    Hey...that's what my 2600 looks like! A "Vader" huh? Never knew it had a nickname.

    I got it (along with Combat and Pac-man) in late 1982? 1983? Can't remember exactly. Still have it ~30 years later.
