(edited and complemented by Gawaleus)
Here I'll give you some information about rare and special games. If you think somthing should be added to the list, please let me know, thanks!
|Mario Bros. Pokka, released by the food company Pokka. Probably as a competition etc. Only 500 exist.|
|KE Mario, distributed via http://www.keleg.dk/ (Danish Toy Company).|
|Candia Mickey Mouse and Popeye.|
|Green FIRE. Not a popeye case, labeled as FR-27. There is only one known item and it may have been tampered with, possible fake.|
Bosch Turtle Bridge.
|Alsthom Antlantigue Popeye.|
|Argentinian Donkey Kong Jr.|
|RIWEG Helmet. The company FRIWEG was foundet in the year 1950, is from Germany and is manufacturing tools. The name of the company was build out of the first and last name of the founder, Fritz Wegner. The company still exists, but today it's name is fw hanse werkzeug: http://www.friweg.de|
|SNCF Octopus, French version of the game released by "Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer". Translated as "National company of the Railroads". Release unknown.|
|Fram Popeye. Fram is an international company dealing in car parts. The slogan on the top of the game "Les filtres les plus vendus au monde", translates as roughly "the most sold filter in the world". I have no idea why a company dealing in air filters would want to promote themselves on a G&W, but it was in the 80's. Fram is still around, and their website is: http://www.fram.com/|
|Dove Turtle Bridge, French.|
|Mario's Cement Factory ML-102 with the logo of Mitsubishi.|
|Donkey Kong 2 OEM Box.|
|Super Mario Bros. YM-105 OEM box.
There are two different versions. One with SUPER MARIO BROS. imprinted below YM105 and one without it. The back side of the box on the left is blank, while the back side of the OEM box below has YM105 imprinted on it as well.
|It's believed, that these OEM versions where given away from the distributors to the dealers of electronic games. Maybe the purpose was to find out, if they would like, buy and sell the games. Please let me know if you have any information about the OEM versions, thanks!|
