LEONARDO

This is something very rare in particular because it was marketed only in Italy. Anyway it's not very difficult to play games made for it since it is nothing more than an Emerson Arcadia 2001 clone. The system was sold for a couple of years only at a very good price (for the time): 150000 Italian lire (less than 100 US$ at the actual exchange rate). The distributor (GIG Electronics) is one of the biggest toys distributor in Italy and is actually distributing two leading brand in the electronic entertainment market: Nintendo and Tiger Toys.



The complete system as it was sold: Box, Leonardo system, one game cartridge (Grand Slam Tennis).

COLLECTOR NOTES

Leonardo systems are very difficult to find. In a lot of years I have found only one Leonardo system (without boxes and games) but sincei t was sold at a very very high price I did not bought it. The system wasn't a great success and so I suppose many units were sold at a very discount price.
