Here is an example of a game I did.

@eto It looks that each eBay region provide his own list.

The title screen is without doubt the cpc floppy release.

Remember the GX4000 game exists, but only a few newsrooms got a cart to test the game: Amstrad 100%, Joystick, Player One in France and Amstrad Action in UK. On the Amstrad 100% review the title screen is shown (more colours than the floppy release).

Maybe exists. Magazines weren't entirely unprepared to pepper previews (and sometimes reviews) with mocked up screenshots etc. Maybe even more so if they already had the disk version to compare against.

Wow it's been reduced to 139.99 plus 8.99 and has a bidder

no. the same. Listed over and over again.

But I somehow get it: If you are a collector, even bootlegs are a collectible. It's not just a plain cartridge, it's a very professional bootleg. And I would expect they are probably more rare than most of the original cartridges. At least it's the first one that I have seen on Ebay. 

If I would be a true GX4000 collector, such a bootleg would be something I would like to own - and if I don't care about 150GBP, I would buy it as I will probably not have the chance to get such a bootleg cartridge for quite some time - or maybe ever.

The only thing is: we often do not see something as a collectible, as we tend to think it's not worth much based on our own perception. The Amstrad market is just not big enough to recognise true collectibles. E.g. I once sold a Schneider application disk and thought I would get maybe 20€ but then a Spanish and a German collector went into a bid race and it sold for 120€. Absolutely not justified imho but two guys thought it is justified.

This be true. I know quite a few collector's who own bootleg copies of hard to find games. Some are quite content owning the bootleg even just to fill that space on the shelf and be done with it.  Others consider the bootleg a full-on placeholder, it's there on the shelf til they finally find the official item.  And yeah, some people pay silly monies but eh, if they're well off, got money to spare, maybe they're rich or won the lottery and £150 isn't even enough to be considered pocket change to them.  Up to them. Their money.  I mean, I hope they also generously donate to charity too but yeah.

 
I know if I won the lottery I'd outbid everybody on eBay stuff I'd want. Too many times I've had to back down from something I wanted cos it went too high.  I'd love to feel the satisfaction of never having to quit and finally WIN!  :D
