Why can't we have nice things? Because NuAngel found them first! The lucky fellow came across a box full of Wing Commander I memories. He was kind enough to snap some pictures... and it immediately reminded me of the first time I opened that box so many years ago. He says:
A friend of mine was recently helping another friend of his dig out and toss some old junk away when they came across something special. Knowing I am the local WingNut in the area, he kept me in mind. Yesterday, he unveiled to me this battered and beaten box of classic goodness. We all know it as the original 1990 Wing Commander. Upon opening the box, I found the contents to be in astounding condition.I know there are rarer games, more valuable games, games in better conditions... but there aren't any that are this important. We're honored that he chose to share it with us!
Everything that was originally in the box appeared the same, including:
3 5.25" Floppy Diskettes
The Clawmarks "Magazine"
All 4 "Blue Print" schematics of the Rapier, Raptor, Hornet, and Scimitar
The 1990-91 Origin Product Catalog
Flight Cap, Secret Missions, and other materials "fanclub" type order form (pink sheet)
Quick Reference Card (loading the game, controlling the game, game interface, etc...)
Disk Exchange Form
Product Registration Card
