So far, all of the Intellivision-related stickers in my collection are from
Germany. These Aufkleber (falls Du wissen wolltest - der Webmeister
von INTV Funhouse kann <<ein Bissel>> Deutsch) are most likely
promotional items you could grab at displays in stores or some such - I honestly
don't really know. In addition to the stickers, I've spotted a book cover or
two, but haven't been able to get them.
So, the obligatory plea for more information! If you have seen or know of
other more Intellivision stickers, please
let me know!
The stickers I've located so far are in the table below. Yeah, the River Raid
sticker's a bit of stretch, but it is available for Intellivision!
Sticker: 16 Bit Klasse (German)
This could be translated a couple ways - literally "16-bit class" but
more likely "16-bit Rules!". Clearly Mattel marketed the superior
power and technology of the processor in their system more overtly in Germany.
Perhaps they felt that better graphics and sound weren't reasons enough?
Intellivision - Das System mit Zukunft (German)
"Intellivision - The System of the Future" might be translated
literally as "Intellivision - The System with a Future" - which
would be especially ironic. That slogan appears to have been adopted late in
1983, very shortly before the demise of Mattel Electronics. Nice Astrosmash! motif.
Sticker: BurgerTime (German)
I suppose all sorts of bad puns could be made about the name of this
game, as "Bürger" is the same as "burgher" in English -
meaning a citizen in singular or plural form. There is nothing especially
German about this sticker, but that's where I found mine. Clearly, Mattel's
one and only true arcade hit needed to be marketed worldwide.
Sticker: River Raid - Jagdflieger (German)
I'm not positive of this, but my guess is that this could be what
you got in Germany for joining the 'Activision River Raiders Club' rather
than the patch.
After all, the artwork is the same as the original version of the patch
you got here in the U.S. Although rather than calling you a 'River Raider'
you were simply a Jagdflieger - a fighter pilot.
