They are overpriced over here at the moment, I've been looking for one for months but the sellers on ebay expect to get about twice what they are worth. Same one keeps popping up, lower and lower price each time but he still declines my £75 offer, which is more than fair. Maybe one day I'll get one for a reasonable price (I don't want or need one that badly that I'd pay over the odds for a broken one with no tray).

I have no idea how much they are worth so I am open to reasonable offers...

If its without the tray or controller and untested but in good condition ( no broken parts and tires not soft or rotting) that's about 100 us dollars , tested to turn on up to 150 at best. I'm not really in the market because I already have my Omnibot 2000 Jarvis project. Maybe Rich would be interested though.

it has the tray but no controller and I have just broken the arm whilst moving it (the plastic spindle has snapped, just needs glueing) but to be honest for the amount you are quoting it is not worth the hassle of packing and posting etc so it looks like the binmen can have it......
#26  
Obviously the amount i suggest does not include packing and shipping but please don't throw away a robot like that. Someone will want it. You just gotta be reasonable in price. Brand new the robot was 600 dollars 27 years ago. , and now its broken and very important parts missing. Anyways sell that tray on eBay seperatly you will get a pretty penny for it.

Dude I'd be interested so don't throw it out. I wouldn't need the controller as the EZ-B would do all of that.

Over here (in the UK) they go for around £100-150 on ebay with controller, tray etc. The more damaged they are the lower it goes obviously, and no controller drops it still. The last one which actually sold on eBay went for about £35 but had a few big cracks and was very yellow.

Broken arm may be a slight issue but repairable I'm sure. It depends on how much the postage would be, if you can find out (to GL504SP) or if close enough I can always collect. I've sent you an email, feel free to reply to it if you'd rather not discuss on here.

I have an omnibot 2000 complete with remote and original charger. Sadly I can't find the tray though :-(
It's been in a darkened cupboard for over 20 years and was in mint condition when I put it in there. It won't charge up though now so I suspect the battery needs replacing.
After reading this forum I've popped it on ebay as its not doing any good sat in a cupboard under the stairs.

Mel, check the dates of the previous posts;)

@samanddud thanks for the heads up, what's the reserve on it though? I'm still looking for one of these and have some cash left over from the recent car purchase that I may spend on more robots.

Hi Rich,

I have put it on with a reserve of £200.

I think the listing closes on Sunday.
No idea where the tray has gone mind!
Cheers,
Sam

I saw it got up to that almost straight away, I'll no doubt be outbid on it since I can't really allow myself to spend too much (despite wanting to). But at least it bumps the final selling price up a bit for you:)

Wow these prices are mad one listing now for £500. The older smaller Omnibots are better value but still over twice what I paid a couple of years ago

They have been non existent on ebay UK for about 6 months (2000s) so £500 may sell, auctions I expect will hit the £300 mark.

The smaller Omnibots are around £50 although noticed one hitting over £100 without a box at the moment, which is making me toy with the idea of selling one of mine since I want to finish the 2 bots I've started before starting a third.

Hello all, I have an Omnibot 2000 in great condition with serving tray and remote. I have had it for over 30 years and was the original owner. There is very little yellowing, no scratches or dents, the inside is clean as well. I can post pics of it if anyone is interested in taking a look.

I have just put a new battery in it and it lights up perfectly during startup. You can hear the gears engaging too. However

1) the remote, which lights up as well, doesn't seem to be able to control it.

2) I can't find the 6v charger, and

3) one of the battery contacts that controls the LCD screen has broken off due to time.

Any thoughts on how I can get it working again?

I have also considered selling it, but don't wish to pay Ebay's seller fees, despite knowing that I probably will have to at some point if I do sell.

I can be reached at alexalbatross@hotmail.com

I have an incomplete Omnibot 2000 robot project i am willing to sell.It is a double body stack and a regular Omnibot drive train with an additional swivel for stability. The head has two blue leds near the ears and 2 Logitech cameras...He stands at 27.5 inches in height. Their is no motor in the neck. Regular omnibot drive train works very well in this configuration...Perfect project to customize yourself..Front has a slot to hold a Windows tablet(not included). I interested send me an email at remyseman@msn.com.....Very to easy to use with EZ robot..
