    I should also add, the other Amigas may have them on memory expansions in the trapdoor expansion area. It was the Plus variant that had one integrated into the main board though.

    TY for the heads up will open them up and remove them, fingers crossed no leakage :)

    This is the one I remember playing in school... not sure if I owned one, or just played a friend's. Used to get up to some crazy speeds!

    Felt like I was driving a Delorian :D

    I wanted the Red Tomy Tronic as it reminded me of Tron but after a couple of years asking they got me the Blue one

    I bought the red one a couple of years

    Cleaning both of them up at the minute there was some corrosion, hopefully can get them up and running.

    You gave up on the restoration idea then? Saw the listing on Adverts.

  • Registered Users Posts: 567 ✭✭✭ Burzum

    Didn't give up as such, working 6day weeks with new job so barely any time to myself let alone enough to get through this bundle.

    I've fixed up, 1c64 and tape deck, 4 2600's, a C64gs, 2 Sord M5's, 2 sharp mz7000's, working on a spectrum plus 2 cassette drive at the minute but not gonna lie the amount still left to even un box is a little overwhelming :)

    That's why I put half of it up for sale still leaves me with a big enough pile to get through.

    Work always gets in the way! I'm just a lotto win away from taking that listing off your hands.

  • Registered Users Posts: 567 ✭✭✭ Burzum

    Hello - what a great collection. You don't have your username on Adverts? - Either I cant see any ads, or they've been all sold.. Thank you.

    Crikey did I miss this !

    I had a Sord M5 as a kid , my first computer which I inherited from a cousin

    Also I used to have most of the Tomy Tronics at one point when I was really actively collecting ,including a pretty rare yellow Jungle Fighter one , sold them on while back though.

    Have a really old youtube video of the collection here if anyones interested (was recorded on an old camcorder so low quality but still might be of interest)
