Granted, these are more rare, perhaps with the exception of Ishar 1, 2 and 3, but just on the wrong side of what I would consider reasonable too?

Almost like these people are putting them onto eBay to show off. At those prices they must realise that nothing is going to sell!!

As for the FGMC II, I'll stick with my modern day options:

Thos prices are a little ridiculous to say the least. Maybe someone, somewhere will indulge, but most likely they will sit on eBay never being sold, as so often happens.

Those new PCB FGMC IIs are looking nice!

Yeah, they are 2 piece boards, so you can also fit the clock module internally, more on that here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=34

You'll need to be good at soldering to fit it though. That's my STE in the pic, and I needed a very fine iron to solder to the bottom pins on the cartridge port. Though I have no doubt it would be easy enough to pick off a point somewhere in the MB instead.

Exxos still has some of the clock modules in stock here: https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/atari/last/storenew/#0096
