Yeah, they were worthless for a while, now they are not (although ebay sellers are over-estimating their value/gouging what they think they can get away with prices). Same with VHS, cassettes, cine film
avatar
@HippieDalek Wow £1! I read somewhere it retailed for £899
avatar
I sold mine years ago for 100!
avatar
@zoidberg Do you remember those Fighting Fantasy gamebooks we had in the UK? The prices of some of those are crazy on eBay. Anything remotely cult/geek/collectible/retro has just gone through the roof
avatar
Really? I had them back in the day.
avatar
@Hitcher Yeah some of the later issues (50+) have gone for £150-200 each! They retailed for £3.99 Smile
avatar
Fighting fantasy rings a bell, never had any though. Nostalgia's one hell of a drug
avatar
Jesus, really @alleycat? It's a funny old world we live in...

Folks, Blutopia currently have open applications, in case anyone's interested.
avatar
aw, looks like that's no longer the case

Do we have any members in The Netherlands? I am trying to buy a DVD from Marktplaats but it won't let me register as I'm in the UK. I would cover all costs if anyone could buy it and rip it for me?
avatar
I jump in to help. I am not from Netherlands, but close enough to help. everything in PM, but we do not need multiple people now to chime in. Smile

Bot foremost: Thanks for the hint to that netherland 2nd Hand Marketplace. I always love to check 2nd Hand places in different countries for intersting stuff, that people dont put at ebay. Like I got John Woo Film DVDs from Finland on a finnish 2nd Hand marketplace. Big Grin
avatar
It's always nice to find a new treasure trove
avatar
Oh yeah, especially when looking in countries wher epeople do not use eBay that much, and rely more on local 2nd Hand Places. Often they are not even translated. But after successfully using a finnish languaged marketplace, the netherland marketplace feels kind of easy.. and I speak neither finnish nor dutch, whild knowing german and english helps with the dutch a bit... (but not with finnish at all)
avatar
Thanks again for your offer of help Mr Brown. I found a Norwegian marketplace in the past that someone helped me out with as you had to live in certain parts of Europe, can't remember the name of that one though. Also I have used https://en.todocoleccion.net/ several times for Spanish second hand stuff
avatar
Nice... Huuto.net is the Finnish 2nd hand market place... Signing up there was a pain, because it did not work with German phone number... I had to contact service of that page and they helped me...
avatar
Maybe we start to collect country specific 2nd hand market places in a thread...
avatar
I think that's a great idea, especially helpful when trying to track down a certain release that has something special about it.
