Lasonic TRC-931 Redux

Notice a trend with the systems of this era? Here’s Lasonic’s TRC-931, a popular system from around ’86 or so. I remember when these were given away as prizes on that kids’ game show Double Dare. The one pictured is an original, unlike the one below which is a re-release. A couple of years ago, Lasonic had the brilliant idea to reply to market demand and sell a slightly re-designed 931. Notice the features and graphics look pretty much the same, but the chassis has a more rounded look. Even the second release models are hard to find these days and fetch up to three times list price.
