Actually, he's already got a buyer, and supposedly the buyer WILL dump
and distribute it.  So keep your fingers crossed.

It is indeed the same one.

I think everyone was contacting the seller quietly, hoping they were the
only one who noticed.  That's what I did, as I wanted to fulfill an old
dream of Tim Duarte & myself -- release Ewok as a "2600 Connection Special
Issue" cartridge.  I don't think that's going to happen, but at least we'll
be able to play it.

Cheap?  Where do you see a price?  The auction above is only for Gyruss.
Ewok just happens to be on the same pic (what a tease!).

>Didn't the other known Ewok prototype go for more than $1000?

Supposedly around $2000, though I haven't been able to track down who
got it and exactly how much they paid.
