Company's name through the years

The name seen on the back of the boxes and cartridges, as well as the penultimate page of manuals, can be a good hint to tell a rough range of years for certain releases:

  • Tec Toy Indústria de Brinquedos Ltda was their original name since foundation, and used from 1987-09-18 to 1992-09-30
  • Tec Toy Indústria de Brinquedos S/A was adopted in 1992-09-30 and used until 2000-12-28
  • Tec Toy S/A was adopted in 2000-12-28 and used until current days

Tectoy's Master & Mega Club

"Master Club", later renamed to "Mega Club", was the roots of Tectoy's Sega Club. It distributed a journal (which would later become the Jornal Sega Club) with information about new releases and a phone (Hot-Line) to answer questions. In July 1991 it had around 35,000 members[19].
