Coleco Omega Race (1982, VFD, 4 C Batteries, Model# 2392)
Omega Race (along with Berzerk) was to follow in the Arcade Game series in 1982 (based on Bally/Midway's Omega Race arcade game). (Previous games of course where Donkey Kong, Frogger, Galaxian, Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man, and Zaxxon. Donkey Kong Jr. should probably be there, but since they just took Nintendo's DK Jr instead of using the prototype they came up with, I don't really consider it part of the line). This mock-up was created and photographed for the 1982 toy catalog distributed at Toy Fair and other locations, but it was most likely a non-working sample used to show how the game looked, I don't believe any working version where ever produced. Unfortunately, this game never made it into production. It would have been the only game to have a horizontal screen in the series (except for Zaxxon...).
Do I have this? No.
