AstroBUGs Keychain

AstroBUGs Keychain
Created by Peggy Gladdon.
From the Archives of Mike White.

This keychain was put up for auction by Mike White in September 2013. Here is the item's description takes from the auction, "This sale is for a homemade leather key chain fob that says "ASTROBUGS"! This RARE goody has the original ASTROBUGS logo on it, in COLOR!! Which is perhaps the ONLY place the colored logo exists!! The key ring has gotten a bit rusty over the years, but this is a Genuine Peggy Gladden-made article! I don't know how many others were made like this, certainly NOT MANY!! If you're a collector of Bally-Astrovision-Astrocade items, then this is perhaps a once in a lifetime opportunity to land this!!!"

Conan Promotional Sticker Conan Promotional Sticker.

This sticker was archived by Paul Thacker on December 11, 2021. He said, "Here's one of the cooler and stranger items I've bought on eBay. I'm tempted to hang this on my wall with a Conan movie poster. I wish they had finished Conan. I don't know if I'd exactly call the prototype fun, but it's definitely unique and I wonder where they would have gone with it.

"Promotional sticker for the unreleased Conan game for the Astrocade. According to the seller, this was a snipe intended to be placed on a Conan movie poster in theaters."

Bally Arcade Custom Controller.
Created by an unknown Bally Arcade user.

On November 23, 2021, Nate Reeder posted some pictures of a custom, wooden Bally Arcade controller to the Bally Arcade/Astrocade discussion group on Nate wrote:

"I bought a system recently that had a few items with it that I was interested in. One of them was a wood controller. I thought that it was going to be a piece of wood that was carved to be shaped like a controller. But it looks like someone decided to try to make [a] functioning controller.

"The handle and trigger are made of wood. The handle is two halves screwed together. There are a couple pins in the handle to hold the trigger and parts inside. The internal parts for the joystick are in a pill bottle. The joystick and trigger wire are run through the lid. The joystick only moves left and right. On the bottom of the bottle is the connector. It is held in with a nut and lock washer."

Incredible Wizard Ad at Baseball Game Incredible Wizard Ad at Baseball Game

     According to an Astrocade press release from June 1982, this was the world's first video game to be projected on a giant screen (25' x 35') at a baseball game. Other than knowing that this is a White Sox game played in Chicago in the Summer of 1982, I don't know who took this picture.

Robby Roto 7-11 Slurpee Cup Robby Roto 7-11 Slurpee Cup (Auction Screenshot) "Adventures of Robby Roto, The" 7-11 Slurpee Cup

     "The Adventures of Robby Roto" is an arcade game that Bally Midway released in 1981. The game is based on the Bally Arcade/Astrocade chipset. This game wasn't popular in the arcades and thus it didn't see wide production. Therefore it is unusual that there was a 7-11 convenience store Slurpee Cup tie-in. This game has the distinction of being the first game ROM that is legally distributed for use with the MAME arcade game emulator.

     This cup was for sale in November 2011 on the Ebay auction site.
