Atari Controller Gum Tin: Want a (Joy)Stick of Gum?

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  September 16, 2009


I had to figure this was going to show up sooner or later. What with the Nintendo NES mints and Wii gum containers, it was only a matter of time before the Atari 2600 got all jealous and demanded its fair shake. So here it is – the oh-so-awesome Atari 2600 controller gum container.

There’s not much more to say, other than the fact that I need one of these. It’s probably not practical to whip this thing out of your pocket, what with that erect joystick poking it’s way out of the face of the controller. But I’d like to leave a couple of these sitting around the game room and hand them out to my buddies when we’re ready to have a retro gaming session and see how long it takes them to figure out that they’re not real controllers.

Want one? You’ll have to wait until late October to get one. For now, you can pre-order singles sticks over at NCSX for $3.89 (USD) each, or you can get a case of 12 over at Westfield Comics for$28.05.
