Master System Girl

As well as Europe, other territories that were very strong for Sega and the Master System, their partner in the region Tectoy would manufacture the consoles up to 2014, making it the longest console production run in history.


The Sega Tectoy machines were made for the South American markets such as Brazil and Argentina, where machines like the Master System Super Compact the Master System Girl were introduced.


It seems the Girl was an attempt to garner female interest in the console, with everything brightly coloured, including the console which is bright pink.


These consoles had an aerial attached, which could transmit the game to the TV's antenna. However, this meant that the picture could also transmit to a neighbours TV! The console could also attach via the RCA socket to the TV. The Girl is pink instead of black, and has has either Monica as the built-in game, or both Monica & Sonic the Hedgehog. Monica is basically Wonderboy, with the sprite changed.

The console is held in the hand, or if an external controller is attached, can be put on a table like a normal console. It has a built in D-pad, and two fire buttons like a Game Gear, and a pause button. There is a channel switch on the left hand side, and on the top next to the RCA/aerial socket is the Antenna/CAB switch.


It runs off a 5-6 Volt PSU or from 6 AA batteries.
