This is 38 years old, and was the first appearance of the "D-pad" by Nintendo on any of its systems. I personally imported a "shipper" full of these games back in 2005 & have let most of them go over the years. I can thus confirm that all components are original & as removed from the Nintendo factory shipper.
NO ITEMS ARE REPRODUCTIONS, nor has this complete package been "pieced together"; all items are original to the shipper. Please note that the lighting was different from photo to photo; colours are consistent even if they do not appear to be e. The front and back of the G&W itself. Box: box is in fantastic condition, with a few minor rub marks being the only flaws. You can see two of these on the bottom right of the front, in between the Nintendo logo and the edge of the box.The bottom of the box has the most rub marks, most obviously on and above the first'E' of SCREEN, and above the DOKNEY KONG logo. The sides both have some small marks, as does the top, and there are a few on the back. Don't get me wrong, this box looks amazing. There are NO dents, just rub marks/"shelf wear". Even the flaps are unbroken/uncreased in the middle as can happen from opening boxes carelessly.
Game: the game itself is amazing. This edition did not come with plastic film over the faceplate.
There are no scratches on the faceplate as far as I can see - this is really as good as you can get. When photographing the unit I did notice some small marks on the orange plastic - I have highlighted these in photos, which makes them look worse than they are.
As best I can speculate, this is factory wear from manufacturing. Everything is as you would expect - clasp, battery cover, terminals, hinges, interior plates etc. There is no screen bleed & all display "sprites" are clean and functional.
The polybag is original and clean. Paperwork, foam, and batteries: all paperwork is present and mostly excellent. The glaring issue here is the staining on the spine of the instruction manual and absent staple, which has been removed.
The pink warning sheet is slightly creased on the left hand side. Stickers great and not lifting. The foam is in amazing, box fresh condition, with no dents, cracks, or chunks missing (it's new). The batteries are excellent, original, and have not leaked. Expect this item to take longer to reach you than the stated post time , this is out of my control.
