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.
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.
@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.
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!
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.
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.
