Low price Falcon?!

Post by mrbombermillzy » Fri Sep 18, 2020 4:19 pm

Wow, an EvilBay auction for a Falcon030 ending in less than £1000 (near £750 infact):

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Atari-Falcon ... 1438.l2649

Do we think the F030 being worth more than gold bullion price madness has peaked?

Or is the DDD case so very unappealing? :lol:

I have never like the topper cases.

It's gone for £738.60 which is incredible as the listing doesn't have any pictures of it working or any description that it works.

Well you know Ebay...Imagine how you want something (without either looking at the pictures or reading the description) and if its not so, send it back. Its the Ebay way! :D

Seriously though, its listed as used but in a working state in the heading descriptor, so seller better beware if its not.

Yep came up a few to times already.. Its Steve from wiztronics who's getting the stock from brad at best. A few of us tried to do a deal and a bulk buy. He turned down £12,000 in the end. Who the hell does that, so anyway.. He's pissed off people like me and others so I hope he never sells the stock, which he never will as he has thousands of the stuff.

Just greedy businessmen . brad must know he isn't going to sell all the stock in his lifetime, so he's involved Steve to bulk sell lots, so probably brad gave him 20% discount maybe. But if they have 7,000+ videls, how many are going to sell each year ? I would be surprised if more than 2. So to take the whole stock even £1 a chip is £7,000 . assuming chips sell at £50 each and 2 a year sell.. It would take 140 chip sales or 70 years.

Now buy them at the asking price of say £30 a chip, that's £210,000 of af stock on videls alone. Who is going to have that just lay around ? Even if someone did, nobody will ever sell 7000 of them in their next 10 lifetimes.mix in combel etc....

The only person likely to buy is the guy doing the falcon remake board. But if he buys they win.. If they never sell the stock, then what ? Brad dies and it all goes to landfill ?

All they are interested in is £££ and I don't see them ever selling chips at a reasonable price either. If they sold falcon chips at a sane price, there would be a lot more falcons out there and at a more sensible price.
