I have a heavy sixer !!!!!

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a lose Atari 2600 for sale on eBay with some half eaten joysticks, that looked like a heavy sixer, the rarest Atari 2600 console. These consoles are a little hard to detect on a  crappy picture shot, so it was a long shot. Luckily no one else spotted it, the crappy joysticks on the main picture were not very appealing, and I won the auction for $15. Then i waited for it to arrive, I was not sure it would be the grandfathers of all Ataris. When it arrived today, I opened the box and immediately picked it up, it was heavy (4.9 pounds, 2.1 Kgs) and it has all the sign of a heavy sixer (heavy, made in Sunnyvale, CA, heavy molding on the side). Whoohoo !! Graal found !!
I reunited it with a heavy sixer manual I got a Pink Gorilla last month. It is in its box, not sure if it is the original box, I can not find the serial number sticker on the box,, with the orignal grey power adapter. I can't wait to plug it in, supposedly it works, and the onscreen colors of heavy sixers are known to be better than later models.

Time for some nice pics
