Hmmm.

...as it will take me a month to shoot all the photos

How long does it take to point a camera at some stuff, download them, log on to eBay, and upload a few images? I took over 400 pictures at the weekend, and managed to get them all indexed and filed away in about half an evening. Not exactly brain surgery.

It must take a lot of time to think of all the different angles you can take a photo of the same gear from :lol:

Hmm - top, bottom, all four sides, a pic of the manual, and a few cables. Yeah - you're right. That's at least a week in the planning stage, before you even think of picking up a camera! :lol:

Ummm... How does this work. The seller registered 18th June 2011. Bought three items and has four feedbacks... Also, what are the chances of two separate sellers providing identical feedback comments???

Seriously if anyone lays out 10G with a complete unknown in the selling stakes, they must be crazy...

Before I hit the link, I was expecting £350. You know, one of his TYPICAL outlandish prices?...

It's the common 64K model. Come on? I won a boxed, UK Enterprise 128 about 12 months ago for £75+P&P.

Has anyone ever witnessed the sale of one of his micros?

Where does he come up with his prices, FFS?

I'm shocked too. I'm currently holding The Last Ninja Trilogy for C64/Spectrum/Amstrad/NES; it was a Retro Gamer cover mount...

Oh yeah just noticed :

"1x Sinclair ZX Spectrum + (Rare 1989 October UK Edition)"

Humm by 1989, Spectrums where very much in Amstrad's domain, so this is very unlikley to be true.

"2x Sinclair ZX Spectrum Roms: JET PAC and PSSST (Rare ROM Cassettes)"

So are they Rom carts or tapes, they look like tapes to me.

I feel like asking him something like "£1,357.00, what planet are you from !" :) :) :)

Cheers.

He KNOWS he's taking the Micky:

"This package is worth over £1.357 GBP (aprox. $2.182 USD) but will be for grabs for the happy bidder starting from £777.00 (aprox. $1.250 USD)."

Notice the use of decimal points and not commas?

and...

NO BUYER'S REMORSE or RETURNS?

How about drunk impulse buys?

He's Portuguese, on the continent they use points instead of commas and vice versa. Price is still ridiculous though :)
