Even though the Coleco Gemini is a clone of the Atari 2600, I figured it would be cool for it to have its own thread for discussion.  These are rare consoles nowadays and they do look rather nice. Here is an article that looks at the systems history:  Coleco Gemini: An Atari 2600 clone from 1983 (https://dfarq.homeip.net/coleco-gemini-atari-2600-clone-1983/)

Here is a video review of the console:

I don't and they are rather rare.  In other words, expensive!

Not sure. I left it at my moms house when I moved out years ago but she sold the house about 10 years ago so I would assume it was thrown out.

It was a cool little console though and I really liked the controller.

Ah, that's unfortunate.  They go for quite a bit of money right now.

It is a neat little system and the controllers really look interesting.
