Yeah Yurkie was offering it for a while but stopped do to lack of interest. You might want to check out his sales post to see if you can get an idea of how much he charged for it. Just stay away from the last few pages if you would like to avoid drama :)

Yeah I think he's just offering a power mod, eliminating the power brick all together.  What I do is actually open up the old OEM power brick, repair all the components inside with quality components that will probably last another 30 to 40 years.  I don't really like to cut new power jacks into a perfectly good console shell unless the customer specifically asks for it (which hasn't happened, yet... lol).  Thanks for the advice! :)

Older auction but I thought was interesting.. It included a Super Game Module but no picture of it?

Wow, somebody got an amazing deal in that case.  If I didn't have an SGM, I'd be super jelly!

I wouldn't be too Jelly, while the games were worth that much, the so-called SGM in the auction was in fact one of the piss poor Juice Boxes which have audio issues.

Can someone explain this to me? Is this a relisted item. I'm sure I didn't sell anybody 2 copies? And is this fake bidding and just relisting the same item?

I've been resisting making any more copies as I feel the game is not as good as my more recent work but I don't want crazy prices like that happening . I may have to make more copies and list them on ebay just to keep that from happening again if this is real. It's the main reason why I continue to offer mr. turtle even 3 years later so as to keep the price down for anyone still wanting to collect.

 

Either that or just send me the boat load of money and i'll make all the copies you want. Ha Ha.. .   half kidding anyways.

 

I don't mind people reselling their copy if they don't want it anymore but these prices are cracked and was never my intention.

Those kinds of prices almost make me want to sell mine... almost.... 

 

That's nuts.  And yes, if *legit* (I don't know how many others have been auctioned), prices will probably stay high.. though I'd guess not THAT high. 

 

Not directly, but reminds me of Ghosts N Zombies, where there were limited copies and absolutely no more being made... often sold for a lot of money.

It's almost nice to see collectors still battling it out to get those CV homebrews that were released in relatively low numbers. :)

You could always put one up yourself and see what it goes for to see if there is a legit demand or if the others are fake auctions just to drive prices up. If it goes for a high price, at least that money is going to you.

Based on the user's Completed listings, it looks to me more like a collector who just wanted to unload his/her collection. WAR seems to be the only one that was re-listed, so either the original sale fell through, or there actually were 2 available to be sold. And the person is mostly a buyer, so I'm optimistic that these are legit.

I think you're right , it seems legit and it was just the same game relisted. It just seemed too high to me. I mean its not un-common for 150 - 200 on an older out of print title from any coleco homebrew. Maybe it was just a one off high price. It was a bit of a surprise. I think People would enjoy TANK MISSION much more and I would prefer to direct them to getting that one instead of this older project. I do like my cover for this older one though.

 

Perhaps i'll do a set of trading cards with ... only 4 cards. collect them all. I might seriously have to make some more and put them in my store even though i'ts not as good as my newer projects.

Oh, that makes sense then.  Screw that knock-off.  I'm happy to have been in on OpCode's 3rd run through the Atari Age store here.

But that Juice SGM knockoff offers a voice synthesizer as well with no game support, just a test rom utility. :)
