I saw a lot of Atari 2600 clones, but this one rules. Cheesy

I know, but if I call a game console "RAMBO TV GAME" I would expect it contains a Rambo-game Wink

I just wonder....when were these bootleg machines released ? It looks like they had access to the original molds for the casing......this would be "logical" if these were released when Atari was already selling the 2600 jr. as the old ones may have been sold by the far-east factory....


Or they made molds from an original machine maybe ?

This one was quite common during the second half of the 90s over here in Austria. We had a lot of small electronics shops primarily catering to the migrant communities in Vienna (mostly 10th and 15th district), and most of them had a selection of VCS and later on NES clones. FIRST (I remember them as "FIRST Austria"), listed as manufacturer on the box, was a common brand for all kinds of electronics in these shops, and it seems they still are around: http://www.timetron.com/

Conrad once had a big store in Rotterdam, I think it opened somewhere in the 90s and I remember having seen Atari 2600 clones there too.

That name !! LOL Smiley

I kinda like the Aracib one I posted best because they actually tried to copy Atari's style of packaging of about 83-84.

It really makes you think how much of these were sold and how many versions exist....

Sorry for bringing this subject back from the dead. Smiley

I have a stupid question. I saw an actual Rambo console being sold secondhand, but it is almost worthless as it is sold without joysticks which are most likely destroyed (there are some remains of a cable of one of them in the box). Does anyone know if famiclone 9-pin joysticks can be used for this system - they do physically fit in the connector? I can't obtain the original Rambo ones, but famiclone ones are easier to source and I have a few. Thanks in advance. Smiley

You can use any commodore 64 or Atari 2600 joystick for this system.
Answering your question, judging from these schems, the +5V and the ground is on different pin.

Ok, thanks. Smiley

So, I could basically rewire it, I guess? There is even the original cable of one of the joysticks in the box, with the connector on one end. Some Famiclone joysticks can be opened, though most recent (post 2000 ones) have some built-in IC. I'm not sure if it would interfere with Rambo's operation.

The next thing to sort out would be - the price negotiations. Smiley The model on offer is with 96 built-in games. It interests me primarily because I've used many famiclones, and I noticed these built-in games are similar to ones I know but still somewhat different - would like to see them in reality. It is a vintage console, I can tell it by the amount of electronics inside (board spanning edge-to-edge inside a console) - famiclones typically have just one chip (NES-on-a-chip) and up to about 10 other components if they don't have an RF output.
