Was just looking at that ... Me too ... At least the logo on the pen looks authentic unlike the logo-less watch.

I'd love to see this thing in a giant, protective plastic case.

If anyone buys this at that price they should immediately be drug tested.

He also had a bunch of Disney VHS tapes up which are no longer available, the most ridiculous one being this: http://www.ebay.com/...497.m4902.l9144

 

Seriously folks, who in their right mind would spend 5 figures on a VHS tape? And that's not the most ridiculous one either. Here's someone attempting to get a grand shy of $50,000 for it: http://www.ebay.com/...497.m4902.l9144

 

Apparently people continue to hold out for their pipe dreams to come true, even though it's simply not going to happen: http://www.snopes.co...lection-disney/

Sure, I guess these ...

http://www.ebay.com/...S-/112445946348

 

http://www.ebay.com/...S-/112446570878

 

... can become this ...

 

http://www.ebay.com/...E-/322609708687

 

... for twice the price when certainty goes from "HomeMade ? / Prototype ? / Test Cart ?" to definite "PROTOTYPE Dev Carts" with no additional supporting evidence apart from more wishful thinking, I guess.

 

Neither the boards nor the EPROMs match the era-particular dev copies I've seen, which is more than a few. I don't think I've ever come across a Coleco Inc. board of any kind that utilized Mitsubishi Electric chips, in fact. I'd like to be proven wrong rather than call out the seller like this, but I don't believe I am.

 

Someone prove me wrong. :)

I just don't understand the fascination.  A prototype of something never heard of or sold, sure.  A prototype of a game I have especially a common game.  0$  is the price I would pay.

The point, here, though is that these aren't even that ... unless someone is taken in by the say-so of a listing that itself makes less than a half-hearted attempt to justify the auction's title, let alone its asking price.

In online selling, like online dating, there's the view that if you are specific, people will use it to exclude your item or use it against you, if you are vague, some people will fill in the missing information with wishful thinking and only have themselves to blame.

There's nothing vague here about the declaration (and only that) that these are prototypes. The original seller played the fill-in-the-blank game. Not so on the second go-around.  ;)

These have been (re)listed multiple times over the recent past. I don't think there have been any takers, but I never went back to check.

Yeah, I don't scour the eBay pages as I did in the past so missed seeing these being (re)listed.  They are still pretty rare though, but not something I personally would want.

Given the asking price w/ shipping, I don't think you're alone in that.
