OK, just for the sake of argument...10,000...

Each unit costs $100 to produce (hardware, box printing, manuals, etc.)...you got $1 million to invest?

Bank loan? Ummm...well, I want to re-create a modern version of a 30-year-old video game console...DENIED...

Plus you would be competing for sales & shelf space with Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo.

  Perhaps Walmart would require 100,000 units, however 10,000 units would be ideal for Amazon , EBAY, and some small retail stores.

    While I share your enthusiasm for all things ADAM/ColecoVision, I don't
    think Wal-Mart would give you the time of day unless you could supply them
    with several 100,000 units and guarantee them a substantial flow of software
    for the machine. The kind of money needed to produce all this would kill the
    project before it started.
