Adding this to my wish list, since it's aviation-related AND a Commodore product. Ad from a 1980s issue of AHS-Vertiflite.

1. 1989 Sony CCD-F35 Handycam Video 8 camcorder with all the equipment and manuals, plus Video 8 cassette.

2. VHS-C cassette adapter.

3. Duofone TAD-242 microcassette answering system.

4-7. "Dominion Tank Police" on MovieCD. To the uninitiated, MovieCD is somewhat of a variant of Video CD (VCD) that utilized the MotionPixels codec. VCD was the first digital optical video format before DVD, but after the analog opticals such as Laserdisc and the limited successor CD Video (CDV), which could only play five minutes of video. Here in the last picture I'm playing it on my old Toshiba Tecra laptop that runs Windows 98 (it won't work on my newer Windows 7-operated PC).

Can anyone tell me what tape format this is? Real or just a prop? It's one of the fried data tapes collected from the Churchill shuttle in the 1985 movie "Lifeforce":

1. Late-1970s APF TV Fun Model 401T pong console. Doesn't work, unfortunately.

2-3. Radio Shack TV Scoreboard with original box, plus light gun and manual. So glad to have this thing back.

4. Commodore 128!!! Did you know these are fully backwards-compatible with C64 hardware and software?

5. Commodore 1571 floppy disk drive for the C128.

6. SR-3000 dual interface printer for the C128.

7. C128 System Guide and C64 Games Book.

8. "DuckTales: The Quest for Gold" for the C64/128.

9. "The Movie Monster Game" for the C64/128.

10. "Skyfox" for the C64.

11. Tons more games/programs for the C64/128 that came with my C128 and other stuff.

12. Two datassette games for the C64 plus Sublogic "Flight Physics & Aircraft Control" guidebook.

13. Joystick controller compatible with the C128 (and other computers with the Atari-type plugs).

21. Finally got my hands on that pesky RF switch box for the Atari 5200. Too bad it doesn't work! Argh!!!! To be fair, that could just be because of the 5200's cord being in bad shape. I gotta learn how to repair it.

Bad news, the C128 doesn't work. I get a signal from the TV, but the screen is black. Tried multiple AV connections. Possibly one of the chips burned out... ordered a couple on the evilBay, so we'll see what happens when they get here.

OMG you actually own punch cards. IDK if that's the most epic thing in the world or the most WTF, but I think you certainly make a name for yourself in the retro world for having them. XD

It amazes me how much things like stiff paper with numbers on them will gain value over time. I would guess that these are especially valuable being unpunched, but I'm not an expert.
