I saw a Omnibot on E-Bay for $1200. It's still there, why do you think that is? ;-)
There is on on ebay at the moment for £120 last I checked. To me it's not worth that so it can stay on ebay. Like anything really, some people will expect silly money for junk others are realistic... Prices also fluctuate a lot. My first Omnibot, no box, no tray, no paperwork but working with controller was £50 plus shipping. My second one, with box, with tray, mint condition was £55 plus shipping. And another I was bidding on between those 2 went for £7 plus shipping. A further one I've seen and made best offers on was up for over £200, the seller bought it a few months before for £30!.. It's not sold.
Same with the 2000s, some go for over £200, others go for £30. Some sellers expect £200+ for them in bad condition due to other good ones with everything selling for more. Another on ebay that keeps popping up, worth no more than £100 to me (delivered) but the guy is expecting £200+ plus shipping... it's not sold.
Robosapiens, same again, some go for cheap others want £200-£300 for a V2. The higher priced ones don't sell. They are worth £40-50 tops, V1s £20-25 depending on condition.
My hearoid, extremely rare in the UK, so what? New brain (literally) and he is now even rarer!..
The same guy I got my first Omni and my Hearoid from had a Maxx Steel for sale too, I am pretty certain that only around 4 of these things made it to the UK. He expected £200+ for it but started it at £1 no reserve, it got just over £100.
I have my own prices set for what they are worth to me and a general idea of what others will pay for them. Any in good condition with accessories etc. I wouldn't add an EZ-B to. My first Omnibot is too good to hack but the one with the box etc. is not as good so it's swap the 2 over and hack the worst one.
I think if I can get a loan i'll go for it.
I gotta finish his wiring and configure the h bridge , I had one motor go bad I replaced (which was 27 yrs old anyways) and two bridges on the project have a defect. Otherwise is a excellent robot to hack and roomy inside once you remove the battery box.
can't get a loan so looks like i'll have to work some cash and find another.
