Coming to the World Cup? Want an Amiga?

Postby Binary » Thu Oct 15, 2015 11:22 am

As we mentioned before, we've acquired Amigas on purpose to run this World Cup, as we didn't have enough in Ireland. So we're selling them, at cost, to participants who can take them home at the end of the tournament.

I'll be posting details on those Amigas here and on WC Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Kickoff2WorldC ... 5020806802) , and we'll take reservations via the usual channels (comments/PMs/emails/etc)

Photos and details of the first one(s) will be posted soon, so stay alert if you want an Amiga at a nice price!

AMIGA 500 #1

The first Amiga 500 we're selling is a Screen Gems pack.

+ Box in good condition
+ Despite slight damage, sleeve is included
+ Includes all original software/manuals
+ Includes award badge
+ Warranty seal intact

= A520 not tested
= Not too yellowed, considering the age

- No mouse included (the one depicted was damaged)
- at least one of the games doesn't work (sorry, can't remember which one)

As a freebie, we're including 2 joystick cable extenders so the 9pin plugs don't get damaged from all the connecting/disconnecting.

As mentioned, we're selling them at cost for any buyer attending the World Cup. Leave the WC on Sunday with this Gem (pun intended) under your arm for €76

The second Amiga 500 we'll be selling at the World Cup was bought from a well known retro gaming store, so it's possibly the most professionally tested before it got to our hands.

+ Includes external drive, for your KO2 data disks
+ Includes lots of original documentation
+ Includes workbench, original tank mouse
+ Good clean keyboard

= A520 and RF cable untested

- Box could be in better condition

As a freebie, we're including 2 joystick cable extenders so the 9pin plugs don't get damaged from all the connecting/disconnecting.

We paid about €93 for this one, but for anyone attending the World Cup we're selling it for €83 to keep it in line with prices paid for other Amigas. Reserve it before someone else grabs it!

I suspect the 3rd Amiga 500 we'll be selling at the World Cup was once for display on a store window: it doesn't seem to show much usage, but it is considerably yellowed.
Even the old style battery in the included 1Mb expansion looks brand new.

+ No big marks of usage
+ Good packaging
+ Includes 1Mb expansion
+ Includes original tank mouse & award badge

= A520 & cables not tested

- Quite yellowed

As a freebie, we're including 2 joystick cable extenders so the 9pin plugs don't get damaged from all the connecting/disconnecting.

Once again we're selling this one at cost for anyone attending the World Cup. For €60 you can take this bargain home at the end! PM/comment/email us to reserve this before anyone else does!

Amiga 500 #4

4th and final Amiga 500 for sale at the World Cup, is a good price/quality ratio. Nothing outstanding about it besides the 1Mb memory expansion but nothing really negative either

+ Memory expansion to 1Mb
+ Not too yellowed
+ Box in very decent shape

= A520 not tested

- Mouse is not the original tank mouse
- Not all inlays are included (like the PSU padding)

As with the other Amigas, as a freebie, we're including 2 joystick cable extenders so the 9pin plugs don't get damaged from all the connecting/disconnecting.

We got it for €61 so that's how much it will cost to anyone attending the World Cup this weekend! Remember, in 4 days you could be bringing this bad boy home!
