Lerm were (in)famous for doing utils to help transfer games (normal loaders through to Speedlock and others like it) onto Microdrive and Wafadrive.  I used to "supply" them with originals c/o the old C90 and for my "work", I'd get sent some of their utils to play with plus their Cheat Sheets (guides on how to convert such and such a game).

Recently won 'three' Z88's on ebay as a job lot - one fully working immaculate one with box etc and the other two are spares/repairs.
Just been given an immaculate ZX81 and also a couple of 'old' macs, an LC and a Performa 630 - always nice to have.

so close ! £1.99  ;D I think that was a steal

bought a few other DC PS2 ans SMS games all under £4 each so was quite happy

I got it at GameScene UK (its a Bristol franchises) never seen it outside of Bristol anyway.

PS if anyone wants to pass a few hundred quid my way for this uber rare item.. please do so!

The only problem with Factory sealed items are that if you open them, they potentially lose value, and if you don't open them, are they of any use ?

I have Space Raiders on the Atari 2600 with the keypads, still sealed, also an NTSC version of Pole Position for the 2600

not a problem from my point of view. Some people are anal enough to want to keep a sealed item on a shelf for years, and that's fine by me.
Wouldn't dream of buying one for myself!
