These lots would have sold far better if split up. Still, you can’t blame them too much for chancing their hand. Ten grand though... ouch.

If Chase HQ 2 is one of those 6 GX4000 carts, maybe worth it  :D

Who is going to put down £10k on a bunch of old stuff like this, not many or anyone for that matter I think.  I could be proved wrong but.

Yeah, I think it's pretty much impossible to sell it as is and at such a price...


The 664 is really nice but it has never reached such heights - yet.

I don't think it's a bad price.


31 computers at 100€ per computer plus 760 games at 10€ per game is more than 10K€. And I'm not counting the peripherals in.


Now, moving all the stuff is going to be hell.


Are the shelves included?  ;D

Yes I agree individually it might have that kind of value but to sell 10k of amstrad stuff as a single lump could be a hard ask

Yes, definitely. Just pointing out that if you have the money, it's a good buy.

Calculating €10 each for every cassette game and €100 for every computer (when some are marked "for spares") is being extremely generous. My quick calculation puts the lot at about €3500.

What I was going to say. How many times have we spent €100 on a CPC (20 of them are up as 'for repairs/spares') or €10 for a budget game?

Individually you’d have to pay shipping for every item, so I was adding that to my calculations.


Considering the actual prices for retro stuff, I don’t think is a bad offer.

Nah, way too much cashis for a "spares" and "untested" lot.
A great deal of the games would not cost £10 when new.

Best would be to sell individually.
Bet you they would make more money as well!

It's like buying a pile of shite of a car for £500 and selling it for parts.
Usually, you would make 10 times what you've paid for it!

I think we are all agreeing we don't think the seller will realise a £10k sale anytime soon on ebay.

Unless of course, there is one single piece of Hardware in there, that a certain Spanish collector doesn't have yet. Then it could easily go for 10K.

Haha.


Think we are all on the lookout for a certain spanish piece.


As an aside though...


What are your thoughts on this?

That's (probably) a joystick interface for the PcW. I got one too.

That's interesting.

You can not put $10 per game since most Amstrad games you can pic up on ebay way cheaper than that each anyway




I don't think it's a bad price.


31 computers at 100€ per computer plus 760 games at 10€ per game is more than 10K€. And I'm not counting the peripherals in.
