$1000 for a crushed Donkey Kong for the XE?  I want what he's smoking!

I was considering it, even though I don't have an XE, but the postage is $89 so it tips it over what I'd pay  :o

TBH it makes me very angry to see such blatant extortion. There are enthusiasts out there with no idea where to look outside of eBay and such listings leaves one cold. If I won the euro lottery, I'd roll out a national education programme called something like FUeBay with T-shirts and the works ;)

I assume these people use free listing days to show off their stupidity :33:

I'd have bid on this but still saving for the postage on the Donkey Kong cart at the start of this thread...
