Hey guys, I'm hoping someone here might be able to help me out.
I'm having a firesale of some items around the house, and unfortunately it's time to part with my precious Pacman game. It's one of the round yellow ones with the rectangular screen. It runs on C batteries.
I was given it for Xmas in 1982 or 1983, and it still works perfectly 30 years later.

My question is this - I'm sure there's a market out there for vintage gaming collectibles, but I don't know where to go or what sites to visit. I haven't been able to find anything here in Australia. Do any of you guys know a site where I might even just be able to have it appraised or given an estimate value?

I don't want to sell it, but I have to, so of course I want it to go to someone who'll appreciate it (and I want to make a little pocket money).

Thanks in advance.

Sorry Stitch...have never even seen one of these. I'm certainly familiar with the ones that look like a littel mini aracde console...I assume you checked ebay already? Good luck! * Kinda looks like one of those robot vaccum cleaners!

Stitch that is way cool.

I actually went to a retro arcade last night and had a total blast!

Played games such as Millipede, Astroids Deluxe, Galaga, Joust, Robotron, Ms. Pacman, and pinball. [Cool]

Thanks for the help guys. I've tried ebay, and they are going in Australia for around $250 but unfortunately i didn't get any takers for mine.

And Pyro, special super thanks for the link.

Keep relisting on ebay. It will sell eventually.

Please use these banners to click through to Amazon when you buy things. They really do keep this board running. Thank you from everyone @ The Rewind.
