There is a whole range of products available for the Videopac series of console that were available either direct from the shops or through the Videopac club, Amongst collectors now they are few and far between, such items as Videopac storage cases, adapters, controllers, covers, promotional badges and gimmicks, This page is intended to look at them individually and try to build a comprehensive list of what may be available for the dedicated collector. I'll try to list categories in alphabetical order.
|To my knowledge there are two metal badges for the
console, since they are both written in English I strongly suspect that
there are lots more in German and French, plus ones for the odyssey.
The G7000 games club and the
I took Control of the Philips G7000
The first being about 3.5cm diameter and the latter being 5.3cm, you received the games club one as part of your membership to the club package, I am currently unsure of the ITCOTPG source, however it appears to be exclusively UK.
The photograph used was taken from an eBay auction, so they do materialise occasionally, I currently own one of the red pins, and did own a white one back in the eighties. I'm sure the commander rom club in Germany would have had lots of its own variants.
|CASSETTE AND CONSOLE TIDIES|
covers are highly sort after, and appear all too infrequently for my
liking, They seem to be of UK origin, and were available from the G7000
|RF (SeCam) Modulator|
The Modulator was made for use with the Videopac 7401, and to my knowledge was only available in france, judging by the box design was made by a third party company, although clearly mass-produced, this one (i believe) is the only one known to have survived, and as luck would have it, it is unused, despite a little damage to the outer card, and polystyrene inserts, the modulator itself is (as new).
|The Philips G7000 Pen|
cover stickers, again seemed to be of French origin, they came on a sheet,
but are most commonly found stuck onto cartridges, The stickers included up
to release 36 and videopac A.. Other stickers included some
commander rom and monkeyshines stickers about 5" in diameter, round,

made a trackball for the US Videopac console (Magnavox odyssey 2), no
European release of the trackball is known, and very few are known to
exist (2 or 3 I think), luckily one has survived intact with box, and we
are fortunate to have been allowed use of the photos.
Other tee-shirts include..
and the new Videopac 38 Tee-shirt as modeled by me on the My Story page and I believe this i still available.http://www.videopac.net/tshirt.html
