Even though shipping was absolutely a killer, I popped for this variation.  It just seems nearly impossible to find.  Well, after watching tracking for more than a couple weeks that it’s been in the states, I guess I’ve got to accept it’s lost in transit.  😢  That just sucks.  I guess the hunt continues.  

Dont give up yet Bill. I just received a game from the UK that i bought 3 months ago.

 

They maybe just randomly checking it for contraband.

We’ll see.  I already notified eBay and they refunded based on their global shipping program so I’m covered at least. I’d rather have the game. Hopefully it makes it at some point.

I know that sucks, especially when its something you really want. ive noticed that i seem to get deliveries from Japan, France, Italy, and Mexico alot quicker than Canada, UK, or Germany.  You would think that shipping from Canada to U.S. would be quickest... but its not! Atleast not for me.

We had package some time last year that we sent to Italy. It sat in Milan for a couple of weeks, then went to Brazil. Eventually it came back to us.

I know the French Canadian Super Cobra is a bear to find.  What about Qbert? I snagged a copy recently.   I know it’s not Super Cobra rare, but it’s the first I think I’ve come across.

If anyone out there wants one of these for half the price of the auction and FREE shipping, just let me know. WOW! What a savings!

I think Frogger is the easiest, then maybe Q-bert.  I need to check all of mine to make sure I have all the French manuals and Parker Video tray inserts.

I have no idea and haven't seen enough of them to know which ones should or shouldn't include them.  Maybe I'll go through mine tonight to see what I have.

Well, surprisingly it showed.  A little over a month after shipping and 3 weeks of being ‘in transit’ in the states it arrived yesterday.  Package was beat and tracking info was mostly unreadable but game was ok.  Tracking info still hasn’t changed.

Well thats good news!

Good lookin cart too. Unfortunately, noone wants to work anymore.. so packages may take 3-4 times longer to get... lol.

Congrats

Excellent news! That is a sneaky rare variant. Congrats!

I know Aquarius doesn’t have a huge collector market, but I was a little surprised this didn’t sell for more. It had plenty of watchers.  I put in a minimum bid and ended up winning it.   I’ve wanted to snag a data recorder and printer for some time and now got nice examples of both along with a few other items I didn’t have.

Very nice grab.

I dont collect Aquarius, but for that price, i may need to start.

yeah, I was surprised it didn’t go for more. Boxed printers alone tend to go for upwards of $150 by themselves.  
 

I’ve got a base system with mini expander that I’ll probably be selling now that I have this.

Some digging and I scored the Hong Kong Action Network blue box of Space Armada I thought I'd never find!

Nice pickup! I think that's an underrated variant
