Nice website, but are the 2600 copier pics mis-linked?
> How was Makko Toys involved with Bung products?
now sure :P
> On a Magicom Box (see my site) it has the FFE and CCL logos - why?
That's a good question...I always assumed that the Magicom was CCL's because the double pro fighters had a spf for the snes and a magicom for the sega side.
> What was/is 'Oh Magicom!'?

In the early 90s, Copiers started being snagged by customs (in the US). This could have been for a couple reasons: 1. pressure from Nintendo (stating that they're sole use is to pirate copyrighted games). 2. Copiers aren't FCC certified, and some actually radiate "junk". (some copiers make the TV signal get a little fuzy, distorted). Major copier retailers had to have shipments of copiers out of HK/Taiwan come unassembled. That way customs was less likely to seige a box of ram cards, or plastic casings.
Before I knew what a copier was, I remember reading in EGM how some reader from CA wrote in asking about how his local videogame store was selling Street Fighter 2 (newly released) for SNES for $2, on disks. EGM basically said those were illegal copies and that you needed an expensive addon to play them. Then, in another GamePro issue, some company snuck in a full-page ad for the MGH. GamePro got some slack for letting that ad slip by.
