Galaga Prototype, StarCraft Prototype, Colecovision, Super Famicom, Ps2 Dev Unit, Nintendo Dolphin
We’ve got some proto goodies today. Also a mix of some vintage colecos and lots so let’s begin with the Galaga Prototype.
The gameplay of Galaga puts the player in control of a space ship which is situated on the bottom of the screen. At the beginning of each stage, the area is empty, but over time, enemy aliens fly in formation, and once all of the enemies arrive on screen, they will come down at the player’s ship in formations of one or more and may either shoot it or collide with it. During the entire stage, the player may fire upon the enemies, and once all enemies are vanquished, the player moves onto the next stage. There were only 5 prototypes made and this is #5/5!
Galaga Prototype for the Colecovision
Colecovision Expansion Module sealed. It’s always great to find sealed items that have survived since the early 80s. The box has some minor wear, more specifically a dented corner but still sealed.

This next auction is a “ghost” auction in the sense that the seller is still trying to compile his pictures and get his auctions ready of “rare” Coleco games so to come back and check out his auction once he’s ready… Why the need to mention it? Let the anticipation begin for what goodies lay ahead…
Colecovision “Ghost” auction
This next auction is for a stunning Colecovision lot filled with MIB games and expansion modules. I haven’t seen a better conditioned lot. The guy really took care of his stuff and everything works. If you wanted to start a Coleco collection I encourage you to make a bid!

Now let’s move on… The next few auctions will feature a starcraft prototype toy set, a Sony Ps2 Dev unit, a Nintendo Dolphin GCB memory, and lastly a Super Famicom Box Game center for 5 games:
This auction is for a complete set of extremely rare 1998 StarCraft figurines that were a small set of prototypes that were designed by Wizards of the Coast and Blizzard Entertainment. The seller goes on to say, “For some reason or another this line never saw the light of day and the program was canceled before it hit store shelves. Being a ex-Blizzard employee, I was one of the rare people to actually get my hands on a complete set of these. They have been stored in a box all this time and actually were never taken out of the plastic bag until now to just get the images for Ebay, then back into the bag they went.” Pretty impressive auction, loved StarCraft and spent too many hours on battle.net. It has all 3 races, Zerg, Terran and my favorite Protoss.

Next auction is the PS2 Dev unit, the seller says:
“For auction is a rare Monster size PlayStation 2 platform software development tool model DTL-T10000H. Has computer like connectors on the back. Was plugged in and responded as a computer. No further testing performed. As with any rare item, this one is Sold AS-IS with no returns. Includes Power cord only. Please feel free to ask questions.
The most sought after, and the most mysterious piece of PlayStation 2 development hardware ever uncovered. Capable of operating in three different modes, including a regular workstation mode, this 13 kg monster of a machine lets the owner do pretty much anything with it he or she could wish. But then it also comes with a price tag matching a faily nice sports car.”. The price is a little high, doubt I’d see it run on auction.
