Collecting Lucasarts games


#62

Oh, thanks for the warning. I kinda assumed Ebay, so…

Anyway, I have some doubts about the pricing now… shipping more expensive than the product? FROM NEXT DOOR?! :angry:

But I can get it sent to the Netherlands (my parents) for €4. I’ll probably do it after lunchnow.

Edit: and bought.

I meant that I borrowed MI3 from the library and MI4 from a friend. Owned != played and that’s an important distinction both ways. I’ve owned Zak McKracken on GOG for three years now after all. I played it almost exactly a month prior to the three-year-ownership anniversary (21-6-'15). :wink:


#63

Perhaps I could add another item and come and pick it up in Antwerp or is that too late?


#64

I was told my package will be shipped on Monday, but I’m not yet sure when I’ll visit my parents. It could be a few months. So if you don’t mind waiting for a while, fine by me. :slight_smile:


#65

Ok, thanks. I’ll contact the seller then to arrange things.


#66

I’m still hoping (dreaming?) to one day bag myself a big box of The Secret of Monkey Island. :thinking:
(Not one of the “Kixx” budget re-release - tho if I saw one for < £20, I’d probably nab it!)

It would just be nice to own a piece of Point+Click history. :blush:
(even if it will likely just sit on my shelf, next to my other “must haves”!)

If the Big D sniffes the business, stay seren, your dream will become reality!

MM Dos 60 bucks. Get it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Maniac-Mansion-vintage-3-5-PC-DOS-Big-Box-game-LucasFilm-TESTED-/183279166133

Thanks!! Unfortunately it doesn’t ship to my country.

(And it doesn’t include the poster, for those in the US who consider buying it)


#70

If you’re quick it can be in Belgium within two weeks. :stuck_out_tongue:


#71

how come?


#72

My mother in law (who lives in Illinois) is coming over in a little less than two weeks.


#73

Thanks for the offer! I’ve contacted the seller… it said “this item doesn’t ship” -not sure if that is true for within the US too (Illinois-Ohio is a pretty big distance in EU terms)


#74

The FM Towns version is available for 999,90 Euros. Is this a new record?


#75

Zak McKracken is still at 700 euros. I can’t believe it.


#76

Not even close…

I have seen 2000€ asking prices too.
Now you can ask anything, so the real record should be the price it actually was sold for


#77

If these games are so expensive over such a long period, they really must be worth such a price.


#78

Jeez, with inflated S.O.M.I. prices like that… I’ve got NO HOPE! :sob:


#79

It depends what you’re looking for, but you can find SoMI boxes + disks + codewheel from £30 on ebay right now.
If you want to have a particular version (EGA or with Spiffy the dog) or for a particular system, you’ll need to be more patient and look out for “buy now” deals. Don’t waste your time and energy on bidding, there’s always a bigger and wealthier loof than you! (In my experience at least).


#80

Finally, a MI box I can afford


#81

This is absolutely adorable!

But again… HOW MUCH?! :astonished:
(I know it’s hand made, but…)
