    Default How much would an RDI Halcyon have cost in 1992 (in the unlikely event you could get your hands on one)?

    The Halcyon story wasn't nearly as widely known in 1992, and I would imagine its value would have bottomed out in the 1990s, with little demand then. I've heard that a Halcyon was sold in 1999 on eBay for something like $1,500 IIRC. I would imagine would have gone for maybe $1,000 in 1992.
    Real collectors drive Hondas, Toyotas, Chevys, Fords, etc... not Rolls Royces.

    The story was known well enough that people were looking for it even in 1992. I started collecting pretty seriously in about 1991. The Halcyon was always at the top of my list ever since Electronic Games magazine ran a multi-page story about it in in the mid-80s. I even ran classified ads in San Diego where the Halcyon was manufactured in the mid-90s looking for one. Interestingly, I was also the runner up on the $1500 Halcyon and the only reason I didn't bid it up more is that I was in my last semester of law school and I was working full time to pay for law school and the math just wasn't right to go higher. Having said that, I found the motherlode of Halcyon material less than a week later and while it ended up costing more than $1500, the owner allowed me to pay over time. I probably would have paid $1500 for a Halcyon in 1992 and maybe even more, but I don't think any surfaced in that era, at least none that I ever heard about.
