Seriously? I'm not sure of the rarity on this, but... $900?

I agree. I take it this price won't be listed in the rarity database?

Back around 200 or so there was a big interest in the really old retro computers like the Altairs. This was sparked by a Forbes magazine article. Machines that normally would sell for about $1,000 were selling on E-bay for as high as $7,800. Now, ten years later, the average price of an Altair is back to the thousand dollar range. Those fanboys hell bent on getting an Altair can only sell them for a loss. I can only hope they bought the machine for sentimental reasons (or bragging rights, etc) instead of investment reasons.

I wonder if something similar is going on here. Is CD32 madness upon us?

No, this guy is just a complete lunatic is all. He has some legitimately rare and valuable stuff, but his prices are an order of magnitude too high and they'll never sell.

It's a pity... I'd love to get my hands on Loom, Indiana Jones, and that longbox Defender of the Crown....
