I saw that auction too - Pongtastic! :D

Half my console collection came from a couple of those job lot type auctions on Ebay a few years ago. Very useful if you get them at the right price.

Wow! True treasures from that golden age of gaming before the first industry crash.

You won't see anything like this again - unless you go to the RCM!

Is anybody else bidding on them?

I missed out on them - I put in a bid of £15 but it went to £18 at least - stopped looking now! ;)
I don't want to spend too much at the moment! Maybe later!

Gosh - just seen this and it only went for £23. That's only about £1.50 per system. Wonder who bought it ?
