Hmm, interesting about the Bestech game... I know Entex licensed most of their early games (most from Gakken), if Bestech was actually a manufacturer, maybe Entex got if from them... I'll look closely at my Entex game for copyrights and such, let me know if there's any writing on the Bestech one (I see something molded in the plastic on the back, but can't make it out in the picture...)

for those who owns the Excalibur Frogger / Space Invaders games.. how are the game play and the controls? responsive? i just ordered both of them from Spencers Online but not the Pinball one.. is it any good? the pinball's tabletop clamshell looks like the same color as Coleco's Donkey Kong tabletop..

Rik, I'm sorry to say that it was our very own Renegade9997 who won the Bestech Vader. I will ask him if he can give us any info as to a date etc.

Here's a different style of Space invaders that's " Highly collectable and made by Taito 20 odd years ago " Mad . I'm glad it didn't sell!

I've been Very tempted to contact bidders on similarly misleeding games to let them know the truth, but I am wary of comeback from Ebay if the seller finds out.

Just found a different form of Excalibur Space Invaders (Galaxy Class)

I see that Spencers has a sale and the Coleco style Space Invader is now below $5

That's got to be a mistake on their site... They are saying the original price was $9.99, which it never was... I think it's supposed to be a keychain version, but someone screwed up when building the site. Mr. Green

Shame they won't ship to Australia (or the UK, sorry Neil). Crying or Very sad

Which of course has got to be at least the 7th or 8th different repackaging of that same space invaders game Rolling Eyes
