This doesn't come up too often. Custom box art and manual though.

Someone probably burned a ROM and put it in a box...

Nice the cartridge label looks OK but difficult to tell without holding it.  The plastic box and artwork is almost definetly home made but looks nice.  Wonder how this fits with ebay rules on selling counterfeit items.


Edit doh, it's even says its "custom made". The Enforcer with custom cover box and manual. Very rare game that has not appeared on eBay for a few years now. The game was never sold with a box and only had an A4 piece of paper as a manual as it was third party. Condition is Good. Dispatched with Royal Mail 1st Class Large Letter.[/size]Les Enforcer en boite custom. Tres rare, international shipping.

The cartridge label looks legit to me but then again it cant be too hard to forge a gx4000 label.


What does look odd to me is 30 bids by 6 people on the first day. Shill bids maybe?

It's surely at the point where it makes financial sense just to make your own??  :-\

Definetly cheaper to buy another game and produce a label .  If the cart is genuine maybe people want a virgin cart?

Hmmm something odd has happened with the auction, it shows as unsold and all bids are gone.

Probably cancelled by the seller because he received an offer outside eBay...
By the way, peoples are so nerd to be able to pay +100£ for a fake box and manual.  :-\

https://allegro.pl/oferta/konsola-amstrad-cpc-tuningowana-gx4000-9064400044

This is from allegro, aka Polish ebay. Tricked out GX4000 (made by one of this forum's members, I believe).
 
It's got 128kb RAM, PS2 keyboard interface, Parados cartridge and .dsk reader. Quite an interesting project. I must admit that it's very tempting. I made a bid, but it's already ~200 pounds and will probably go higher than that. For that kind of money I could get another 6128, mayeb even with colour monitor, so I will probably pass...

....the high bid got withdrawn and I ended up buying it. What a bizarre setup! It's also very ugly :) But I love it too, especially being able to use a PS2 keyboard is amazing.

Meanwhile, I've found another crazy auction. 10,000 pounds for a roomful of Amstrad gear.

That's is old action, but it very strange view the description:


Men's analogue watch, limited edition 1991-1992 (commemoration of the release of the Amstrad CPC 6128 plus).
-----


Index: golden appliquéd bars/drops, minutes/seconds and day display at 12 o'clock, date display at 6 o'clock. 1991-1992 display at 9 o'clock (commemoration of the release of the Amstrad CPC 6128 plus).

What?.

That is soooo fake it makes fakes look real. The Amstrad text is a different font, colour, not centred or aligned and the watch doesn't have any other Amstrad logo or indication and has a style that was unlikely available at the time. I think I'll sell me collectors editions iPad that came out to commorate the 6128.

The first 20 buyers get a free 3in disk with the Z80 version of iTunes!
