True google cache i managed to get hold of the pictures of the Canadian Odyssey2 games. They're on Imageshack, i've downloaded them to my computer so i have them incase imageshack removes them.
Tryed to do a member search on google cache to trace the owner but unfortunaly he didn't fill it in so i don't have a e-mail adres. His videopac.org name is 23skidoo.

Are there any differences in the boxes, or only in the cartridge labels?

Looks like the only difference is the cart labels and maybe the manuals.
Maybe the answer is in this faq:
Quote
Odyssey 2 Canadian Label Variations
The following games were sold in two different versions. They had "sleeves" with multilingual packaging that went over top of the original box, or they were sold with the plastic flip-top boxes and bilingual covers.
- Alien Invaders-Plus!/Envahisseurs Extra-Terrestres!
- Armored Encounter! Sub Chase!/Bataille De Blindes! Chasse Aux Sous-Marins!
- Baseball!
- Blockout! Breakdown!/Demolition! Destruction!
- Computer Golf/Golf Electronique!
- K.C.'s Crazy Chase/La Grande Chasse De Broyefer
- K.C. Munchkin!/K.C. Broyefer!
- Monkeyshines!/Singeries!
- Pocket Billiards!/Billiard A Blouses!
- Thunderball!/Machine A Boules!
- UFO!/Guerre Aux Ovnis!

maybe i remember wrong, but aren't the canadian releases in the same plastic boxes as videopac or brazil releases ? so you only have a manual and the cart with different languages (i never really cared about these carts, but I remember seeing some a few years back on ebay)

As quoted above it looks like there 2 variations. 1 paperbox variation with a bilingual sleeve, and the plastic box variation with a bilingual manual.

I don't think Canada exactly has a huge market.  But I could be wrong.

Were they definitely the Canadian versions, or just from Canada? No pic available and not mentioned in the description.

Six weeks ago I didn't know Canadian versions existed  Smiley

There was a pic back then, they were definitely canadian versions. I'm not sure about Pachinko, because it was a cardboard box, but the other five had plastic boxes with bilingual manuals.

I did!  Cheesy

I have one Canadian cartridge, which has the Europe style plastic case. I think it is Monkeyshines... I'd have to dig it out. All the cartridge labels are the same, except for the name of the game. Boxes/instructions have the same U.S. artwork.

When I get a chance, I'll dig out the one I have a take some pictures... Ay?
