    Default Entire NES Collection Up For Auction

    I haven't seen this posted on here so:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultimate-Nin...item256a657905

    The boxed Stadium Events sticks out but I noticed the Spica IQ-701. Someone care to enlighten me about that? Can't say I've ever heard of one.

    I'm in awe and disappointed that I don't have a vault full of $100 bills right now.

    Questionable feedback, all cheap items(mostly nes games) bought in the last few weeks.

    I agree. Seems a little fishy.

    Also look at his feedback that he left. Doesn't mean anything to a buyer, but still.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    I know he has a gallery available but I didn't bother to look at it. Way out of my price range.

    Primarily interested in that Spica though.

    Well this is insanely curious, to say the least. Many things off.

    He wants to sell everything and start over... yet this is probably the absolute worst time to be doing that.

    He is selling everything in a giant lot, with no game listing whatsoever? That basically ensures you're going to get a minimum for everything. Then he's going to rebuy everything, essentially at a massive loss?

    There are many, many dupes in the tub pictures.

    And of course, the instant feedback. How exactly did he get all this without an eBay account? The bulk of PAL stuff alone would be a challenge without one.

    The imageshack link is generic and would never lead to more pics of his.

    Free shipping? Really? So he's going to flush another $200, easy, down the toilet? Why not just give everything away for free?

    I am not sure if this is a smash and grab scam or the guy is a blithering idiot. Jury's still out.

    I agree something doesnt add up. And he made it very hard to figure it out. The pictures all go together it seems and no photoshop involved so no fooling that way. But.... That doesnt mean they are his..
    The description seems like a very calm legit description. Not the traditional
    "ZOMG HUGE NES COLLECTION UP FOR SALE!!!!!!!!!!!!
    CRAZY PRICE YOU wON'T FIND ANYWHERE!!!!
    MY LOSS YOUR GAIN"

    So either this guys legit and just crazy... Or he has money and dont care about finacial losses. Or he's a clever con artist.

    Not just free shipping, but free one-day, overnight shipping. I would peg that cost at closer to $1000.

    It appears to be a rebranded Micro Genius IQ-701. Micro Genius' system is PAL. It would be interesting to know if the Spica system is an NTSC version.

    The listing now shows as not available. Probably removed by Ebay.
