SNES Championship Joystick Ad

I had seen a joystick very similar to this one under the name “Arcadian”. I am pretty sure they are the same. When I was a kid my friends and I really wanted to approximate the arcade experience at home so we dreamed of josticks like the “Championship”. Yet none of us ever got one because they were always more expensive then the system itself. That made is difficult to convince the parental units. Still it was nice to dream.

    Is it me or is it odd that they decided to tell us the exact type of plastic (as per the ad: Cycolac 1000) was used in the controller’s construction. As if as a gamer I had done a great deal of research into modern plastic composition and will only except Cycolac 1000 contstructed accsessories. Cycolac 800 is crap, but the 1000, that’s the Cadilliac of Advanced Controller Plastics!
