I bought the system last year for about $25 or so CDN
and managed to sell it a few weeks ago at a garage

even see the connection between Coleco and the games
Now if they came out with a Colecovision on a chip and
had a few of teh classic games, that would be
something altogether different. But selling crap
games and trying to associate them with the Coleco
brand name is just lame.
