Expressing interest in that CD32 package if the price is right. Lay it on me Claw... how low can he go?  :lol:

...btw: what's up with that I/O blix serial port card at $210?? Methinks there's an extra digit in there. Take your pick: either the '2', the '1' or the '0'.  lmao


I don't have control over the pricing and I know the one I found and am listing is NEW In a box with an SX-1 and FMV.  The total package will be $400

However I did see a few more boxes of CD32's and I know the used ones will sell around $70.  These are all prices set by raymond.  The CD32's I know he likes and most likey won't budge on price.  Pretty sure he'll keepem first.

Thanks for the reply and answers.  Is the store still open for people to show up and buy things in person from Raymond (or was it ever open to walk-in traffic)?

It is too far for me to travel there and make it worth the travel expenses, but there might be others that are a lot closer that would like to visit that treasure house of Amiga & Commodore gear, software & books.

Just for reference, I bought a brand new CD32 on eBay about 18 to 24 months ago for $49.00 plus shipping.  That estimated price of $400 is ridiculous!  How does he expect to sell anything at those prices?  There seems to be no use in getting my hopes up that I will find anything worth buying from his eBay sales, if he is going to price everything like that, and the other eBay sales he already has listed.  He must be giving the eBay seller too much commission for handling the sales for him.

Too bad, I was hoping to fill in a few holes in my Amiga book collection and possibly find a few software titles that I would like to have.
How are you helping the Amiga community? :)

If there are any A1000 keyboards, and shipping overseas is possible, I'd be interested. Even non-functional ones could be useful, I have one myself that needs a few spare parts (key switches).

The new ones from China were always just over $100 with shipping, but they didn't include an SX-1 ($100-$200?) or an FMV module ($250+?)  I think $400 is fair.  

$70 or so for a used CD32 is also quite fair, especially considering new ones don't seem to be available anymore.

In the video hes talking about throwing away the software.  What you see there is BOXes and boxes of UNOPENED C64 software.  He has cases left over from when he ran his retail location.  Thats why were packageing it with the C64s.

Walkins are welcome still send a PM and we can work out a time. It is a warehouse and we all have other jobs/families to deal with as well so Its by appointment only.  Saturdays works best.

Not all his pricing is ridiculous.  Some is like I stated before I don't have control over it.  If your not interested in an item because of its price wait and see if it drops.  Thats all I really can suggest.  As for the commision I don't have any of that information but you can always request that from the seller on ebay.

I do know the books and sofware isn't something hes looking to make alot of money one except for a FEW Items that are very rare from what I understand.  Books are going to be sold fairly cheap and I do know he wishs to keep 1 copy of each  one for his own collection.  He calls those shop copies.  And from what I'm aware of there not shown in the video.

I did ahve a fairly bad experence with 1 of their mod.  However the head of the forums seems like he was more interested in helping the Amigoodies get to good homes.  I will choose not to judge the whole site baised on the actions of a few bad patrions.  Don't worry this forum is the home for all these goodies and questions and I'm sure if Amiga.org didn't want me serveing you I would have been asked to stop already.  I've always like Amiga.org the best with VERY Close second choice EAB.

Thanks for the support its nice to see I'm not a singled out instance.

I was trying to get people helped over at Amibay.com but the mods think I was silent bidding.  Let me make this clear before I even start here. I am only a cataloger.  I do get paid for my work HOWEVER I do not set prices or even list the items.  I can get items listed faster but the all will be on EBAY.com and will have the prices set by the shop owner.  There all BUY NOW.  Requests will be processed in the order they are recieved on here.

I'm starting from scratch since the AMIBAY.com people somehow think I was cheating.

I'm glade you mentioned that.  The majority of Amigas are 1000's.  I did talk to Raymond on saturday about overseas dealings.  He said if we get cash upfront for item and shipping that we would have to work these deals "NOT" on ebay.  He had some problems with this in the past and dosn't want to have a reaccurance.  If your still interested let me know asap as we are starting an Off Ebay request sheet for people that are looking to get things overseas.  If you see something you want on ebay let us know and we might have more.

thanks

You have my attention too. I noticed a quick shot of cartridge that looked like C-64 type. Got any Final Cartridge III's hiding in there?
I would also be interested in a GVP A500 II hard drive for my old A1000. I don't car if there's any drive in it, or RAM (I can supply that).
A2000 GVP 40MHz \'030, 21Mb RAM SD/FF, 2 floppies, internal CD-ROM drive, micromys v3 w/laser mouse
A1000 Microbotics Starboard II w/2Mb 1080, & external floppy (AIRdrive)
C-128 w/1571, 1750, & Final Cartridge III+
