Looks like I haven't updated any of the main pages for 7 months!, so I added a few new bits this evening:

Updated posters (3rd poster): http://www.videopac.com/posters.html
Updated Siera pictures with 6 & 17: http://www.videopac.com/siera.html
Added Schneider 74+ page: http://www.videopac.com/consoles/schneider_74+.html
Added service manual covers for G7000 & C7010: http://www.videopac.com/service.html

I've created a few new pages as well, I'll add links for them soon and then announce here.

It is also now possible to get to www.videopac.com using www.videopac.co.uk as I spotted around lunch time that the domain was now available and so grabbed it for ?5 per year.

just saw your "standard" A for the first time ... AFAIK this is just the manuals and cart put in a plastic case, as the paperbox also came with the manuals held together by this wrap around thing ....can anyone confirm this ?

I have seen the paperbox in that format, so I'm sure your right. I'm not sure if we would be able to prove how Philips always shipped it now though... Huh?

Well we still have to confirm a Radiola plastic box "A" for so far there are only one known copy of Siera "A" or Radiola "A" paperbox, so any variation of "A" is extremely rare,

IF it is a variation and not just someone stucking the paperbox version manuals in a plastic box ... so far I don't see a variation here ... especially not an ultrarare one - or do you want to buy one ? I just so happen to have one somewhere around here :-) Someone else wants to buy an empty Videopac A paperbox ?

As for what Philips shipped: I have 2 videopacs at home that are "repacks" of paperbox games, but for those philips produced a one-sided cover that was stuck in front of the pure-black cover of the early videopac games, so I am sure they would have done something similar if they were to repack the Videopac A (just guessing here of course)

I've never seen a separate sheet for the pure black manuals. Black manuals only went up to videopac 16. By the time Philips were shipping in plastic they had converted manuals to have colour covers. As 'A' doesn't have a manual, it makes sense they just started shipping it as is in plastic cases.

In the UK plastic cases were given away for free to anyone who requested them as replacements for tatty paperboxes. I don't think you'll be able to prove one way or the other, but personally I think Philips would have ended up shipping 'A' both ways.

These observations should be written down somewhere so we have a guide on such matters, any takers Huh? Maybe a section on your website George?

Yeah absolutely, at the moment there is so much to picture I haven't got much beyond that, but it was always the plan to start doing that next.

Some of the pages could do with a reformat as well, I'm currently working on the club magazine section as it only has UK stuff at the moment. The long list of large pictures doesn't always work so good, although I'd like to keep the big pictures in there somewhere. For one, it starts these interesting discussions.

when they started to ship the "new" manual style, they had to much stock of the old cartridges and manuals left, thats why they made a one-sided inlay and stuck it in front of the others ... I do have such inlays for Nr. 12 and 9, if anyone wants I can take pictures of them and put em up ... its basically the same image but a little bit smaller as it got a white border around it. I am pretty sure that Philips only sent it out in plastic boxes, cause even on pictures of carts in catalogues you can always see it like that, even when mixed with carts in plastic boxes ...

and like you say, lots of carts were stuck into plastic cases later, but I suspect it was only people doing that and not philips ... besides the new flashy colourful carts in plastic boxes they would never have been able to sell the old stock if they just repacked it with the original manual only - and especially not like in the case of "A" which doesn't have a proper cover at all ...
