Something wonderful has happened . . .
« on: February 20, 2009, 05:56:59 PM »
I met up with a friend of mine from the WOS forums today, his name is Ron.
He has kindly donated a fully boxed Sam Coupe, yes you did read correctly, a boxed Sam Coupe in superb condition!
I am gobsmacked to be honest as he also donated a load of speccy hardware too, including loads of disc interfaces etc.
A special thank you to him,  I only met him for the first time today, he will always be a friend of mine, a very knowledgable man too!
He hopefully will be making an appearance in May so some more of us can thank him personally for this very generous donation!

;)

Great donation, I've never seen a SAM coupe in the plastic, I always remember wanting one years ago for Planet of the robot monsters (I think that's what it was called).  8)

This one is immaculate! I can't believe it is in such good condition - It will be on show at the next day! I have several discs for it too - which I purchased late last year. Including Manic Miner! :)

Awesome! That is a very generous donation  ;D
Like you Quagmire I have never seen a Sam Coupe, I think the game you are thinking of is Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters?
