The Loon is back

I can't believe the prices this guy charges for his stuff. At the same time, looking at his selling history, there are even bigger nutters out there who have paid £50+ for a C64 disc of Dragons Lair.

I've seen that guy on ebay before. He must make money otherwise he wouldn't keep doing it but he'll never see any of my money at those prices.

I've seen him before too and when I saw the price of Aztec Challenge I knew it was him again. He does get some sales but none at the ridiculous prices he has now. Still as the saying goes, don't like it, don't buy it.

I can't believe those prices! I suppose if your desperate to get something then he has you over a barrel..... but I won't be doing that in our Ebay shop! Good luck him to though.... like you say he must be making money from it and people buying from him....

I must confess I was tempted by them. £20 per binder isn't extortionate, thats just over £1 per issue.

I'd rather have The Home Computer Course though. Have asked my dad to dig mine out of the loft, though that really does mean 'dig' if you go up there - its packed.

If I remember correctly it was one of the Beyond games, in a big yellow box. I am trying to collect them all you see and he was selling one of the rarer titles.
