I still have mine. And it still works, 26 years later.

My C64 died after my younger self decided that half a six in nail would make a fine replacement for the onboard fuse. Did till it caught a power spike during an epic game of Wizball. People want fucking silly money for those now ECH / Badbeast. Couple of hundred dollers silly money, IF people part with them.

Heh.Omnibot was awesome. Possibly only trumped by 8-Trak, which has been re-released.

What?

I've got, like, 4 or 5 of them.

Of course, they're not that hard to emulate... so theres that.

c-64's ?

if they are the grey ceramic type, not the black box type, check the serial number on them. if its a low one, kerching!

a boxed as sold one starts around 150$, and for an early model in good working condition, you'll get anywhere from a grand upwards. start adding more for original boxes and entertainment packs too.

{edit} part of me wanted to not make that post and say, ah i was wrong about 10$ wanna sell one :D



I think two of them are the original 64s. I don't have any boxed for any of them.

I would like to ad a Commodore PET to my collection.
