    Quick as usual Elvis/2SHY. Was just about to post this myself haha. Looks to be a decent buy.

    From what I can tell they've got the Rampage/Gauntlet/Joust/Defender version, and the Street Fighter version. The other models aren't mentioned.

    Fully licensed games, and the same price as they go for in the US (at most places - Walmart have crazy low pricing, but everyone else seems to be the same in USD as we're paying in AUD, which is a nice change).

    Great to see legal retro arcade options around. Makes me a happy lad.

    I'm keen to get my hands on a SF2 myself.

    Tempted to see if the family in Adelaide can get me a SF2 one... but I suspect there'll be one or two in each store and lines for hours.

    I spotted a $50 pandora's box near newcastle. They are hackable apparently.

    They've been asking that for a while now - 80 bucks ain't much really, you can spend more than just popping into the supermarket for some weetbix and a roast chook.

    Again not a bargain, reflecting how prices have been tracking, but...

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/173599779006

    Medion Radeon 9800XXL for around $80 - which, as far as I can work out, is basically a 9800XT with 128MB. Caps look good, and it doesn't have the unreliable ATI fan.

    Just saw this pop up on my Facebook feed for those in Victoria. Could be a great pick up for someone to keep a couple then sell off the rest.

    I'd be interested in grabbing a Tandy 1000 if anyone here takes up this offer. :thumbup:

    Some nice complete 386 systems up on eBay.

    386 SX20 in a Osborne case: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/302980696044
    386 SX25 in a nice mini tower case: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/302980672422
    386 DX40 in an ugly desktop case: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/302980681998

    All $220 shipped ($209 with eBay PERCENT5 coupon, probably more coupons coming).

    Not cheap, but for complete 386 systems with RAM, VGA, sound, 5 1/4" floppy, and an era correct HDD, price is more than fair IMO.

    Edit: PYRO10 coupon code for 10% off.

    Yep that's OK money for a complete 386 in a decent case I reckon. I haven't bought from that seller but he (or she? nah) looks to know his stuff and put things together properly.

    Total Peripherals 286, complete with monitor. Battery has started leaking but not too bad. Bidding starting at $200, pickup only in the middle of nowhere Victoria: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/401684689491

    Sold for $15, would have been a good buy.

    Compaq Athlon 64 3200+ system for $25 pickup in Narre Warren, Victoria: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/183592099051

    Upgrade the AGP video card and would make a decent early 2000s gaming PC.

    Dont think I can list a facebook listing here,

    Theirs a Sony Vaio desktop for sale in Sydney with Duron 800mhz & 384meg of ram, looks standard otherwise, SHOULD take up to a 1.4ghz Thunderbird cpu.

    Search "Sony Vaio" then click marketplace.

    $80 but would probably sell for less, not a bad retro pc looks pretty cool.
